Comedy Bang Bang (August 22, 2012)

It’s Comedy Wednesday! This week Doug Love Movies didn’t happen before Comedy Bang Bang, which was prefect because I got to see the Pete Holmes pilot taping without missing anything. If you want to go to Comedy Bang Bang, check out THIS website on Friday at noon when tickets go on sale. They sell out almost instantly so get’em if you can, and at $5 a ticket, it’s the best price in town.

John Chavo?? was this weeks host. I can not for the life of me find his name on the internet, which means I’m spelling it probably way wrong. I don’t feel too bad, as he wasn’t my favorite comedian. If anyone knows his name, please let me know!


Sean O’Connor (his website) was up next. He was new to me and very funny. He’s currently working on Shaq’s new show and told the hilarious story of him getting suspended for 1 month from his Catholic high school for shooting “gay porn” in order to pick up chicks. Yeah see, hilarious. Follow him on twitter @seanoconnz.


Brent Weinbach (his website) was next on the line-up. I’ve seen him several times and tonight he did all new material (to me). He also showed this NSFW video.. it’s super NSFW even the censored version. Follow him on twitter @BrentWeinbach.


Baron Vaughn (his website) was my favorite comedian of the night. I’ve seen him many times and his show is always different. He’s so natural on stage, his comedy style makes you feel like he’s a friend telling you a story. I saw him walk past me outside UCB, so I knew he’d be performing and right then I knew it was going to be a great night. Follow him on twitter @barvonblaq.


Dave Anthony (his website) followed up next. He was very funny and told a story about his son and an unfortunate babysitting scenario involving his 3 year old son, his neighbors 3 year old daughter, and “big penis!”. Good stuff! Follow him on twitter @daveanthony.


Chris Fairbanks (his website) came out next. This was my first time seeing him perform. I thought he was excellent. You could tell all the comedians were trying out material and a little jittery, and I think that had to do with the audience having low energy. That being said, everyone was still so fun to watch and Chris was great. Follow him on twitter @chrisfairbanks.


Andy Kindler (his website) was the last comedian of the night. He had a lot of energy, which is always good for the last comedian of the night. He was great and will be performing with Marc Maron, Todd Glass, Neil Hamburger, and Nick Kroll at the Improv on Saturday. Get tickets HERE (use coupon code KIND, although they might be out)  Follow him on twitter @andykindler.
