Friends, Laughter and Tryptophan

Last night, some friends and I went to see the latest Last Comic Standing tour. Already a veteran, I had gone to the "old school" tour the summer before last and saw Rich Vos, Dave Mordal and Cory Kahaney. They were all good. Mordal was the best, even if he is an ass. Kahaney was ok, but used a lot of the same material from the NBC show. Vos tried shamelessly to scam on girls half his age. Ahh, memories.

This season it was a lot of the same only, with different weather and different comics, well kinda sorta. We ordered our tickets back in September, mainly because we're eager losers that panicked at the thought of missing out. But the scheduled lineup changed more times than Jessica Simpson's falsetto. For awhile all different combinations of Jay London, Todd Glass, Alonzo Bodden, John Heffron and Gary Gulman were mentioned. No one knew for sure, so if you were going to see one comic and one comic only, you to had hedge your bets and cross your fingers.

So imagine our surprise when the lineup last night actually consisted of Gary Gulman, Jay London...and Cory Kahaney. I don't know if this is good news for Kahaney or not, but whatever. Bodden was apparently on the lineup for the next night's show. I guess being the big winner allows for some unscheduled down time.

So we were disappointed Bodden wasn't there, but we didn't even know for sure he wasn't till the very end, so it didn't hurt us much. Plus the show was great overall, well despite the fact Kahaney is still performing the same material. My friend passed London getting ready to go on stage when she went to the bathroom. When she came back, she said he reeked of pot. She was right. He performed really well, but he also went way over time. He said goodbye about five separate times...and then just kept on going. It reminded me of the old SNL skit, James Brown's Celebrity Hot Tub with Eddie Murphy. He also had a few jokes about pot thrown in there and made reference to being messed up. Now that's the type of stuff Last Comic Standing: The Clips You Never Saw is made of.

But the award for the best performance of the night hands down goes to Gary Gulman. I loved Gulman on the show, and I love him even more now. My married friend remarked repeatedly how she wished she was Mrs. Gulman. Her husband didn't seem to mind. A lot of his humor revolves around food which, by and large, is unchartered territory. He pokes fun at everything from celery, to grapefruit to Fig Newtons.

If you haven't yet, you can check out some of Gulman's audio clips here. If I may be as bold as to make a recommendation, the sugar cookie bit is one of my personal faves.
