Black History or Blind History?

...no wonder he couldn't see what Spitzer was up to...

My great comedy buddies have opted to keep me informed of some funny clips in the blogosphere. The Daily Show with Jon Liebowitz (uhh, I mean, "Stewart") has a funny video clip of David Paterson, our first legally blind (not Ray Charles blind, but more like Mr. Magoo blind), and legally black governor of New York State.

...Black History!---not Blind History!...



Anyway, this clip is noteworthy. Enjoy!

Todd Barry interview on The Onion A.V. club

I've been decidedly "low-pro" (i.e. "low-profile") over the past few months. However, I'm trying to make a serious effort on a minimum of two different fronts, simultaneously by crafting the latest blog (Standup101.com) and keeping you kids entertained in the meantime.

Anyway, I was recently directed to a fairly decent interview with famed comedian, Mr. Todd Barry (who is currently ego-surfing the internet by Googling his name and reading this article as we speak)...

[Hi, Todd!]

I'm pointing out this article to you, comedy fans, because it gives a solid insider look at the life of a working comedian. More specifically, it shows you (the reader) what the process is like and what to expect in crafting a career in comedy.

Anyway, indulge and read more about standup comedy and Mr. Todd Barry.

And if you haven't already signed up to be on the list of the new Standup101.com site launch, you can do so now <===

    Ahhh... psychics....

    ...Montel is a better psychic than Sylvia...



    Once again, this has nothing to do with stand-up comedy, but it's hilarious! I found myself laughing at the uncomfortable pauses and the sheer "mouth agape" shock from the audience members.


    I do believe there are some people who are "gifted" and can see past what the average person sees. Call 'em psychic, call 'em spiritual, call 'em what you want. There are some things in this world that we can't predict. And clearly there are somethings that Sylvia can't either...
