    I somehow had never heard that bit from him. I went and watched the entire Emergency Room sketch. The femur ward coming down to give him grief about his 10 was pretty funny.

    Today as we were watching my son's cross country meet, the phrase 'go my favorite sports team!' was shared. Then when traveling back home, we saw a stalled car on the side of the road. Someone blurted, 'break down right here right now!'

    Take that, Tick.

    Louis CK and George Carlin are my all-time favorites.

    Dane Cook is annoying as hell. Not a fan.

    I don't mind Jim Gaffigan in small quantities but how many different ways can you joke about how fat you are and how much you eat? It gets old.

    I dunno, how many different ways can Louis CK joke about eating ice cream and masturbating?

    Have you seen his bit about the team of people charged with assigning two letter abbreviations for each state?

    That's a good one. I actually first saw that bit on Conan. It's on the Netflix special as well.

    LDC and I went to see Seinfeld last night. I've seen him 4 times now over the last 20 years and each time he's delivered. I went last night with low expectations thinking he's older and probably just cashing checks. He killed. It wasn't a completely new hour but he weaved through his set and connected the set ups and punchlines so awesome. I wouldn't listen to an album on repeat but no question this guy is one of the all time greats. Super fun show.

    Great news for Dave Chappelle fans:

    http://money.cnn.com/2016/11/21/medi...flix-specials/

    Fresh off a successful gig hosting "Saturday Night Live," the beloved comic is getting three specials on Netflix.



    On Monday, the streaming giant announced that Chappelle and director Stan Lathan have teamed up to produce a new stand-up comedy special exclusively for Netflix.

    They'll also partner to release two unseen concert specials from Chappelle's personal comedy vault. Those shows -- filmed at Austin City Limits and The Hollywood Palladium -- will debut simultaneously in 2017.

    This is awesome. I guess he's back off sabbatical. It's really too bad he had a blowout in his prime-- he looks visibly quite a bit older now.

    I ran into this old Louis CK bit from probably the late 80s (he references minimum wage as $3.35/hr.). Crazy to see either (a) how far Louis CK's craft has come, or (b) how much stand up comedy in general has evolved, or (c) both.

    I have been listening to a lot of Bert Kreischer lately. I've heard him on Joe Rohan's podcast a couple of years ago and thought he was really funny. Bert had a new special on Showtime that had me almost crying I was laughing so hard, I've since listened to his book and have been binging on his podcast. I'd highly recommend.
