Oh man the Comedy Store original room is the best! $15 to see 12-15 comedians tuesday-friday. Agree its a shit show but that's sort of what it is.
I avoid the sold out nights

Comedy runs till 2 but anything after 11:30 is basically considered "late night" with the occasional big name drop ins

On top of the comedians you saw some regulars are Chris D'elia, Joe Rogan, Marc Maron, Dean Delray, Whitney Cummings, Anthony Jeselnik, Nikki Glazer, Ali Wong, Joey Diaz, Dave Chappele, Bert Kreischer, Tom Segura

Its great to just see a bunch of top notch comedians doing 15 minute sets.

I actually laughed quite a bit watching John Mulaney's new Netflix special.

Ditto, he took a big leap forward with this one in my estimation.

I can't believe it took me so long to know about this guy. SNL had me sold and his stand ups have been brilliant. I love his performances.

He was a core writer for SNL for some years; the Steffan character was his creation (with Hader of course). His own standup had always fallen flat for me, but I think his stage presence is starting to catch up with his writing.

i love Mulaney. been following him for a few years, and yeah, his act has really really blossomed.

whether one hates Seth Rogen or not, check out his new comedy special Hilarity For Charity on Netflix. it's a total mess of a special, and no need to sit through probably half of it, but there's a flurry of special guests (Michael Che, Michelle Wolf) that are well worth your while to catch their 5-10 minute routines. Mulaney kills it with a Willy Wonka tirade.

I'd estimate that 19/20 comedians pepper their sets with "they're like" and "I'm like" as a setup for their jokes. Annoys the fuck out of me.

I'm not a fan of Mulaney.

I don't think his stories are funny and I hate his delivery in general.

The horse in a hospital and college bits were really funny.

Chappelle + Stewart co-headlining a tour. Calling Chud, ST, and WM:

Obviously 100% subjective, but I've listened to nearly every WTF episode he's done since 2010, and have watched all his stand-up specials since then. I love the guy and greatly enjoy his persona, but I think he's about as far from funny as a comedian could get; I almost never laugh at anything he says. He should just call himself what he is: A supremely talented interviewer who occasionally does some spoken word shows.

I'd put John Oliver in a similar category. His "comedy" is the worst part of an otherwise strong news program.

his "Too Real" had me in stitches. the way he delivers lines are interesting to me. His internal dialogue matches mine often so thats why I took to it. The special started off with a bang but certainly started to falter as time went on.

My friend (who also loves WTF) and I are constantly doing mocking Maron impressions to each other, especially the way he talks about movies and how he used to be a “filmhead.” ( :haha: )

“What was that?! That was a thing! You gotta reckon with it!”
