    Finally got to a show at the Comedy Store last week and saw Marc Maron, Russell Peters, Dane Cook, Jeremy Piven (he's doing standup now), Steve-O, and a few others. They only did about 15 minutes each, but Maron is the best. Just killed it the entire he was up there.

    Agree with this. Disgraceful is good, but it’s bringing up the rear.

    Tom Segura Completely Normal will always be his best work. Between the First 48 (I BEEN OUT HERE FOR A MINUTE) and Steven Seagal Lawman (I've been working with dogs for like 37 years), it's all pure gold.

    I agree. The other two havent been as good. Had their moments.

    First 48 is my favorite.

    Birbiglia is amazing. He is much more of a one man show than stand up with his story telling ability

    I haven't seen the netflix special but my wife and I saw him at the Fox while he was touring the material and it was great. I wouldn't say vintage Rock necessarily but still damn funny

    I received tickets to see Kevin Hart last weekend In Charlotte at the spectrum arena. Na’im Lynn middled for him and did a great job of bringing the energy up (the show start was delayed almost two hours and people were pissed). As expected, Kevin’s energy level was above 9000 and he kept 40k people laughing for an hour. He’s an easy target for one reason or another and his jokes may never be as layered and thoughtful as the icons, but the delivery method itself is an art form. He’s got that mastered.
    Rogan was in Charlotte the same night and if things had played out a little different I would’ve tried to catch both. I wish I lived in a city with a good comedy club.

    Really good podcast called Good One. It’s an interview with a comic about how a bit was developed. They have had Bill Burr, David Cross on. Just listened to the John Mulaney episode where they discussed how people would pay just to see $100 million.

    I'm a Schaub fanboy, it's kind of a guilty pleasure at this point. So I'm interested to see his special. There's zero content online of his standup...
