LMAO:Anthony Jeselnik at the Improv San Jose

Alllrighty then, it’s been a while since the last update, but we managed to get out Thursday night for some great laughs in San Jose.

Anthony Jeselnik has been doing comedy for 20 years now, but he’s not exactly a household name. I myself just heard about him in the last couple years, in fact. But he SHOULD be wildly famous for his act. The man is hysterically funny! That is, if you like “dark” humor. And we (my family) absolutely do!

His opening acts were forgetful, so much in fact I can’t recall their names. The show opener did have one funny bit about her day job as a teacher for inmates in a correctional facility, but other than that it was m’eh. The featured comic up next was another lady whose name I forget, and her act just kinda fell flat. One punchline elicited a smile from me, but honestly I don’t think I laughed once during her set. It was a heavy dose of ‘cringe’ as the kids say…

After the dull second act, I was really anxious for some laughs, and boy did Jeselnik deliver! I was laughing so hard at times it was hard to catch my breath!

His writing is really clever and his punchlines are so unexpected, it’s really something to behold. Like I said, his comedy is dark, ‘gallows humor’, and is most definitely NOT for everyone. Avoid him if you’re easily offended, or you think comedians should censor themselves and maintain political correctness. If you think political correctness and comedy is a match made in the deepest pits of hell, then Anthony Jeselnik may be the comedian for you!

In all, it was a super fun night, great to get out with the Mrs. and our daughter and her bf. Lots of laughs all around!

Jeselnik is on tour right now, if you have the opportunity I HIGHLY RECOMMEND his show!

Thanks for stopping by!

LMAO: Nate Bargatze at the Warfield Theater, SF.

Sunday night we were back in San Francisco for what turned out to be one of the funniest nights we’ve had in ages.

It also marked the long awaited return to the Warfield Theater,  which I’ve been anxious for as it’s been decades since my last show there.  Considering the last time I was in the place, the year started with “19..”, it hasn’t changed much. Updated bars, a better lighting and sound system…that’s pretty much it.

The grandeur remains!

Julian McCullough opened the show, and he did a fantastic set, really funny. We’d never heard of him before the show, but we’ll definitely be keeping an eye out for him in the future. His bits on Philly alone were worth making the trip for!

Julian, one funny guy!

Next up was Graham Kay, another comedian unknown to us. Another very funny man! He was real low key, but he kept us laughing all through his set.

Canadians can be funny? Who knew?

And finally the headliner Nate Bargatze, our man from Tennessee, took the stage. Man, what a set! If you’ve never seen his show, you are missing out. This comedian is a national treasure! One of the things I love about his comedy is that he keeps it ‘clean’, he doesn’t swear and he doesn’t rely on crass, vulgar stuff for laughs, like roughly 89% of comedians out there these days. And he doesn’t need to! He was just spectacular, I walked out of the place with my face hurting from laughing and smiling so much! I really can’t say enough good things about this guy, it was top notch comedy and a great experience.

Nate Bargatze, too funny to properly describe!

Thanks for a great night gentlemen! Last week was ROUGH, and a night of laughter was just what the doctor ordered!

Thanks for stopping by!
