I do want to see him. I'll try to reserve a show when I get my next credit back

You can't top Andy Kaufman.

Finished up the Just for Laughs festival last night with an Andy Kindler hosted alt comedy night. I thought this year wouldn't be as good as last year - and it wasn't - but it came really close. Hannibal Burress was there last night, which was awesome because it was a tiny venue (same one Louis CK showed up to last year). We also went to the Bren Weinbach show earlier in the night. I only knew him from the small bit he did at the end of Moshe Kasher's special on Netflix (watch it. It's hilarious). Everyone we saw throughout the week and a bit was amazing, but Weinbach was the only one to make me cry from laughing so hard. He wins the festival for me this year. This is who we saw

Anthony Jeselnik
Sarah Silverman (She was even funnier than I thought she'd be. And daddy likey)
Andy Kindler
Bill Burr - he was the one I was looking forward to most and didn't disappoint
Brent Weinbach
Hannibal Buress
Jerrod Carmichael
John Mulaney - didn't know any of this guy's stuff and he ended up being one of the best
Marc Maron
Maria Bamford
K Trevor Wilson

If you didn't do the festival this year or last, you should do it next year.

Sorry Cobbo, Sam Simmons was done by the time I had credits to use

Maybe JT got into an argument with him. Or perhaps it was just contradiction.

That's kind if a similar show to the one I saw from Martin Short last year, except he came out and did a lot of his famous characters. Unfortunately Clifford was not one of them.

Hannibal, Mulaney, and Bamford are three of my favorite stand ups working today. Did Mulaney do any bits about Delta airlines or Ice T?

He didn't do either of those. I really liked his Back to the Future bit. I need to watch some of his specials

New in Town is a gem, as is his bit about Tom Jones' "What's New, Pussycat?"

Seeing comedians in small rooms with few people is always interesting. Sometimes they can be great because it allows for a more relaxed mood, and the comedian can genuinely interact with the crowd. I always feel bad for really good comedians who don't get the laughs/applause they deserve. You know the points in the shows where the applause is meant to come in (if they're good) and it sucks when the crowd doesn't deliver. Understandable, but as a big fan of comedy it's hard to watch. Australian audiences are notorious for this, particularly compared to American audiences (from what I've heard).

Saw a great show tonight in a small room with about 15-20 people, and some idiot up the back tried to make jokes during an audience participation bit, but the comedian had good responses. I won free tickets on Twitter, kinda wanna go back and pay for it.
