Ralphie May was in town last night, and I caught his show.

For those of you who have never viewed Last Comic Standing, or do not know who Ralphie May is, he was the runner-up, second place overall winner(?) for last season's LCS. The winner for last season's series, Dat Phan, was good, but personally I thought Ralphie was the better of the two. Whereas both comics have a style which draws on personal experiences, Dat Phan's style was like "Personal experiences as portrayed in a sitcom." Ral...

Another case for Jay London.

You either love him or hate him. If you hate him, you probably surf right by an Abbott & Costello movie on cable.

Today I had the opportunity to watch it in it's entirety, edited, on Comedy Central.

This is a TIGHT movie! And no CGI! The script is excellent. Although the plot has been construed to be "wea...

To Whom It May Concern.

Thank you.

In all seriousness, Jay has mentioned that he has studied the "old style" comics. I have as well, all though comic I am not. Writer, yes I am in some nebulous capacity. From Lewis & Martin, to Hope, to Abbott & Costello, to Rickles, to Hacket, to Berle, to Silvers, to Winters et al, Jay is merely breathing fresh air into the tried and true. And for those of you who have not immersed themselves in the aforementioned comics, you simply won't "get" Jay...
