Comedy Bang Bang (October 9, 2012)

It’s Comedy Wednesday! 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.

Grant Lyon (his website) was this weeks host and I thought he was excellent. Sometimes the hosts seem under prepared or low energy (which could easily be nerves) but he was very prepared and a great start to the night. Check him out and follow him on twitter @grantlyon1.

Natasha Leggero (her website) came out next looking lovely as usual. She’s such a fancy comedian. She did a mix of old and new (to me) material. She was also in high spirits, which was nice. I love her on Burning Love, and if you haven’t seen it, click that link! Follow her on twitter @natashaleggero.

Andy Ritchie (his website) was up next and was also a “barrel of laughs”. The energy was really high last night and the crowd was loving the show. And as Andy pointed out, it was abortion night at UCB since most of the comedians talked about it. Follow him on twitter @_AndyRitchie.

Kumail Nanjiani (his regular show website) was up next. His wife was in the audience, which was fun for me since he’s talked about her before. They look like an adorable, fun couple. Kumail had a cold but was a trooper and did a hilarious set. I would bet that Kumail has never had an “off night”. I’ve seen him perform maybe 30+ times in the last several years and he’s always been hilarious. Follow him on twitter @kumailn.

Greg Behrendt  (his website) followed up next. He talked a lot about his family (specifically his daughters) and his dog Waffles. I love when comedians tell true family stories because it helps you get to know them, it makes them more human, and true stories are always the funniest. You can’t make this stuff up!

Jay Chandrasekhar (his imdb) came out next. You probably know him best from acting in and directing Super Troopers and Beerfest. I’ve gotten to work with him before on Friends With Benefits (he directed an episode) and I love that he’s a successful director that still loves doing standup. Follow him on twitter @jaychandrasekha.

Jenny Slate (her imdb) was last up. You probably know her from SNL (she infamously dropped the f-bomb during her first sketch). She looked adorable last night and revealed she recently got married. She’s so unique and tells incredible childhood stories. She’s very vulgar and not afraid to tell say what she’s thinking. Follow her on twitter @jennyslate25.
