    What did Janeane Garofalo do to her face? I'm just not sure I like her at all. The only time I think I've seen her and liked it was on Primetime Glick. I love that show. And I feel like I'm in the minority on that. But maybe I just want to feel cool.

He said "This is the stupidest joke you'll hear all night." And I agree, there's not a whole lot there. It's just a quick laugh. Yes, the point of comedy is to make you laugh, but I also get from it what you don't get from many other places which is a critical point of view.

    Also, I came home the other night to my boyfriend watching Joe Rogan. I'd never seen any of his standup, but now that I have I am convinced he is one of the most awful people I have ever seen on television and it made me really angry that he can do a whole hour or whatever it was just spewing all the most idiotic things and Tracy Morgan makes one joke and catches all this shit. I love Tracy Morgan. I think he's brilliant. But personal taste shouldn't factor in when it comes to what is inappropriate or not. If you think what's being said is funny, you won't be offended. If you don't, you will. But there needs to be recognition that these people are comedians on stage. If I was at a Joe Rogan show I would probably walk out, but I wouldn't complain to the media.

    Joe Rogan is not a comedian in any shape or form.

    I don't know anything about him. He was on stage with a microphone for a length of time talking and people were laughing.

    Jam-packed comedy night at Largo tonight. Patton Oswalt, Brian Posehn, Wil Anderson, Greg Behrendt and Dave Anthony. Patton, Brian and the charming Australian Wil were especially funny. I think Patton was trying out some new material. The whole night had a really relaxed atmosphere of some friends just hanging out and making each other laugh. Great place for this kind of show. My first time at the new (yeah, I know it's been a few years since it moved) Largo.

    Same for me, buddy. I've also got to finally make it to one of Jon Brion's nights. Speaking of Brion, there was a poster up for an old show that has the most ridiculous credits I've seen....

    Comedy Night
    Written by and starring Maya Rudolph and Fred Armisen
    Music by Jon Brion
    Directed by PT Anderson (!!!)

    What? Man, I wonder how long ago that was.

    I've never seen Jon Brion live in any setting whatsoever. I remember reading about his shows at the old Largo when I was a kid but somehow never made it to one. I'll definitely have to remedy that soon.

    yes, do. i've seen him about three times at the old largo, and it's one of the best shows i've been to.

    I bet. I have very fond memories of seeing Rufus and Martha Wainwright, Jude, and Aimee Mann at the old Largo. So intimate and charming. The new place is great, but it doesn't have that same charm.

    Anyone like Neil Hamburger? I saw him live last year and he was terrific. Signed autographs and talked with people out in the lobby after the show.
    We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.

    Neil Hamburger is fucking fantastic. His Twitter feed is essentially reposting angry Britney Spears fans and it's marvelous

    I'm downloading a digital cubic fuckton of comedy albums to put on my iPod for this bus trip to ATP I plan on sleeping through. Although it probably won't help me now, in general, what are some of everyone's favorite stand up albums? I'm more partial to straight stand up than jokey songs, but post both if you so desire.

    Bill Hicks- Arizona Bay and Rant In E-Minor.

    I've never heard the album for Eddie Izzard's Dress To Kill, but the DVD is probably my favorite stand up performance of all time. I have a few older Izzard albums- Unrepeatable and Definite Article, but neither come close.

    David Cross- Shut Up You Fucking Baby!, a 2 CD marathon, is occasionally amazing.

    Doug Stanhope- Something To Take The Edge Off

    For real old school, it's hard to beat any 60's Bill Cosby album, but Revenge and Wonderfulness are probably the best. Also, the second halves of To Russell, My Brother and 200MPH are great, both long form (20+ minute) stories.

    Finally, the first two Bob Newhart albums are brilliant once you get past the fact that he only has one gimmick.

    EDIT- Just realized this was too late. The power of bumping.
