Bad Grocery Store Advice

Kellen Erskine is such a great stand-up comedian
that I find myself giving some of his bits classic status
even though I only starting playing him a short time ago.
His style is unique and helps him stand out in a crowd.
Always good for a laugh, there aren’t many comics you
can say that about.
This is a really funny piece, top notch material…

Comedy 101 Radio Playlist 12.5.19

I mixed a little holiday fare into the mix
but I didn’t go insane, the usual off the wall
mirth is what I adhered to.
I’m proud to say that I played a lot of new
material this week, some great stand-up
from a diverse group of folk.
Alonzo Bodden is always a treat, he really
has a superb stand-up act; stage presence,
material, and overall personality are his
strong suits, one of the better acts on the circuit.
Lydia the Tattooed Lady!
I played that timeless classic from 1939 made
famous by Groucho Marx in the Marx Brothers
flick At the Circus.
This is certifiably cool as hell…I went to work this
morning like I usually do, hit the toll booth in the
one lane that I knew where my favorite guy would
be taking cash and when I looked up he was
wearing a fake mustache and thick black glasses.
As I passed him the money I smiled and said
“Keep warm, Groucho!”
It was 20 degrees, windy, downright miserable
and this guy STILL had a sense of humor!
Not to mention that this youngish, twenty something
strapping young lad was embracing a true comedic
icon more than eighty years AFTER his peak of fame!
Just when I start to think that maybe, just maybe, I
shouldn’t play the really old material on the show
stuff like that happens.
New material by Stewart Francis, Pete Correale,
Alonzo Bodden, Mike MacDonald, and Rik Roberts.
New material to the show by the late, great Greg Giraldo.
By request, Star Trip by The Congress of Wonders!
If you’re a fan of the original Star Trek series starring
everybody’s favorite thespian William Shatner you’ll love
that piece.
Dog block, Car block, Love Block…couldn’t help myself.
The late, and very much underrated, Tracy Thielen
from Tracy and the Hindenburg Ground Crew with
a manic ode to cerebral disenchantment.

I truly appreciate this scene from Monty Python’s
Life if Brian
Men pretending to be women pretending to be men.
Wrap your mind around that!
They had so many things going for them, with
imagination being a main pillar of what they did.
Absolutely superb on many levels…

I’m It

Andy Breckman with a witty little reminder
on when to NOT play tag with the neighbors!
Long before he became famous in Hollywood
I was playing his material to adoring crowds
on the show (Yes, all three of you!).
He was unique, all of his songs tell a story
with a humorous bent to them.
This is one of those…
