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.
She had an HBO special yeeeaaaaaars ago that was really fucking funny, but Garofalo has been terrible for years now
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 did like him on Newsradio.
One liners written for him is a different story.
I don't know anything about him. He was on stage with a microphone for a length of time talking and people were laughing.
i loved the talking funny special. thanks again for posting and i didn't find it on HBO GO. i will never hear "sitting on the dock of the bay" the same way.
ha, "did he do the whistle?"
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.
i've always wanted to check out sarah's standup at the largo. one of these days.
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....
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.
have you never seen jon brion live? or just at the new largo?
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.
Sklarbro Country podcast outstanding showcase for new comedy and the Sklar Brothers riffing on the contemprary sports topics prety damn funny.
"Racist Vin Scully" is piss your pants funny.
EMCF lineup finalized:
Goddamnit this looks good.
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.
Neil Hamburger is fucking fantastic. His Twitter feed is essentially reposting angry Britney Spears fans and it's marvelous
New Patton Oswalt album in 4 days. YEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!
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.
if you like Louis CK, this is cool. and funny.
We get it already.
Sam Kinison - Have you seen me lately
Steven Wright - I Have a Pony
Patton Oswalt - Werewolves and Lollipops
Greg Giraldo - Good Day To Cross A River
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.
I need something new. Anybody with taste want to offer me a personalized recommendation?
