Top 5 Stand-Up Comedians

I’ve been slacking lately with Top 5 Friday blogs… a thousand apologies, loyal readers!

Today I decided to mix it up and discuss my Top 5 stand-up comedians.  Comedy is an under-appreciated art, in my opinion.  A musical group can write a 3-minute song and get rich.  A stand-up comedian has to write 15, 30 or 60 minutes worth of jokes and perform in front of a drunken audience who won’t hesitate to start heckling if they aren’t impressed.  I’m not saying creating music is easy, but a 1988 Casio keyboard can come up with a good beat.  Yet there still isn’t a computer on on the planet that can tell a good joke.  With that in mind, it’s time to appreciate this under-appreciated art with…

Outside is Overrated Walks MSP ComiCon

As a comic enthusiast, former drama participant and podcast luminary, I have always been enthralled with the idea of going to ComiCon.  For some reason or other, I never actually made it to a convention until the MSP ComicCon 2016 program.

Honestly, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I wasn’t sure if I should wear my Wolverine costume or do something a little more low-key. After a surprisingly lethargic discussion, the wifey and I both donned Batman undies and Spiderman shirts to browse the wonders of the grandstand at the Minnesota State Fair.
