Show 6: Past Your Bedtime
The show started later than usual, but that did not stop eleven year old Anthony from sticking around to warm up the crowd. Resolute, he traded dinner for Cheetos and proved: 1) it is never too early to try your hand at stand-up, and 2) kids stink at telling jokes.
Luke hosted once again welcoming the crowd and comedians
Baron Vaughn and
reassuring everyone that a good time was in store!
Andrew Wright followed with a great set devoid of Pop-eye impressions, despite what this picture will lead you to believe.
Mrs. Odell Peterson briefly abandoned her shut-in lifestyle to encourage everyone to rent Cocoon this week.
Lauren Rochelle ducked into a super set giving Judy Gold a run for her money.
Celebrity Sighting: Up-and-coming singing sensation Corinne Bailey Rae promoted her album while giving her opinions on the stories making today’s headlines.
Baron Vaughn set the bar for how to hold a crowd’s attention while offering knee-slapping anecdotes.
J.L., the jolly brown giant, topped off the night with a commanding presence and (insert one more comment on his height here).
Abbi led a thirty-second workout where she rocked a sweatband and took thirty seconds to work out new material. It was as painful as actual exercise, but jokes don't get funny from sitting around and eating donuts all day, people!
The Hat of Chance decided the fate of everyone’s reputation in the room
and selected J.L. to win the Funniest Comedian of All Time award. And yes, he does happen to love Cornflower seeds.
A lovely audience member became the first recipient of the Burt Reynolds award this evening! That’s right—AUDIENCE GETS PRIZES TOO! We’re generous. And we can’t wait to give you something on September 8th!
