In partnership with CentralTrack.com, we are releasing our Season 4 podcasts as one whole show and it our first episode for the season, “Go With the Flow” from our October 2014 show, is now live!

So sit back, relax and get to streaming as the cast of “Go With The Flow” will take you on all sorts of adventures. Headlined by Nayrok Udab, the hysterical sister of Dallas treasure Erykah Badu, this cast of feminine power includes a tale of adventure from Kendra Greene in the whitewater of Chile, Pamela Stone coming to terms with her incurable cancer, Monica Berry‘s reflection on going through that most pivotal moment of adolescence without a mother, and a hysterical stint on “Wheel of Fortune” from Cheryl Norris. This season opener set the standard high for another year full of stories that will shock, scintillate, and soothe the audience through a roller coaster of emotions.
Returning to the Wyly Theatre and appearing for the first time at The Texas Theatre, Oral Fixation kicked off Season 4 with a double dose of “Go With the Flow”! Here’s how it all went down on that second night.
The energy was alive at The Texas Theatre as old friends and acquaintances mingled by the bar before finding their seats, tingling with excitement for what was to come. A new season brings anticipation of captivating stories and strong orators, and this night soared beyond expectations for Oral Fixation veterans and newcomers alike.
Nayrok Udab’s initial influence in comedy was her mother’s record collection, and today she is known for her head-banging, crowd-moving stage performances that combine rock and hip-hop with a funk twist. This month, she headlines the Oral Fixation season four opener, “Go With the Flow.”
Born in Dallas, Koryan Wright is the middle child of Kolleen Queenie Wright. Koryan spelled backward is Nayrok. Udab is the flip side of her Grammy Award-winning sister’s, Erykah Badu’s, last name. Nayrok’s comedic style has been said to be “what comedy has been missing.”
We carefully sifted through the entries, combed through every line of every story, to find the juiciest, truthiest seven selections to kick off what we know is going to be a fabulous fourth season of Oral Fixation — and we’re pleased to introduce you to the badass, all-female cast of “Go With the Flow.”
Headlining the show: Nayrok Udab, the comedienne sister of Dallas’s own Erykah Badu. Nayrok apparently used to kiss girls and will share salacious tidbits from her phase with lesbianism.
Joining her for a night of live storytelling are six more women to watch:
- Kendra Greene will share her tale about a Chilean whitewater rafting adventure gone awry.
- Monica Berry will remember what it was like to go through puberty without a mother.
- Cheryl Norris will spin the Wheel of Fortune — literally.
- Pamela Stone will tell of facing down the C-word.
- Emily Trube will explore how breaking her leg changed her life.
- And Sissy Block Zoller will reflect on the time she was possibly a mafia princess.
This promises to be a night to remember. So join us on Monday, October 13, at the Wyly, or on Wednesday, October 15, at The Texas Theatre. Season tickets and tickets for “Go With the Flow” are on sale now. Boys are allowed!
After our busy summer break planning and plotting, we’re all set to kick off our fourth season with seven even juicicer, truthier tales on the theme “Go With the Flow” — at not one but two venues! How exciting is that!? Also exciting: Our headliner for the show is Nayrok Udab, the hysterical stand-up comedienne sister of Dallas treasure Erykah Badu, who will share tidbits from her phase with lesbianism.
Additionally, the audience will hear about a whitewater rafting adventure gone awry, the story of coming to terms with incurable cancer, a reflection on going through adolescence without a mother, and so much more.
