We've been busy this week running around and prepping the live filming of our performance at the Sentient Bean. We teamed up with the Hawaiian Shirt Show to film the event. In preparation they interviewed us, which you can see in a clip below:
Thanks for all who came out, and wish us luck as we enter ourselves into the Laughing Skull Comedy Festival!

The show went pretty sweet and I got to personally do what I actually enjoy most about being a comedian which is talking to some of the audience after the show. I met some of the guys from the band The Heavy Pets after the show. Phil and I talked with the guys for a while after the show. It was pretty cool... but sometimes I have to agree with Peter when he says that musicians kind of suck because they are just so much cooler than comedians.
So come out next week to our show at the Livewire (307 W. River St.) at 8pm. And if you have a time machine, hop in it and see our show yesterday.

Last night the Conquerors and a few other local comedians performed for their monthly stand up night hosted by Patrick the Red. Overall the performance was quite cool. Peter's new "poop a little" joke went over well which was awesome for him. The venue is nice and while some of the comedians are not superstars it's a great time for a few laughs. We met some new comedians that night and shared a few beers with them at the American Legion. It was PBR for Peter and I since we were both incredibly broke (Which is a little lame) Jeremy stood outside since he is underage age (Which is more lame). Make sure you come see us their next month 8/13 Since Peter will be hosting.

This past Sunday I saw the Beards of Comedy at the Laughing Skull (it's part of the Vortex bar and restaurant) in Atlanta. It was pretty damn cool I got there early which is surprising since there are two Vortexes and I apparently thought the comedy was at the other venue. I sat down and ate an Elvis burger which comes with bacon, peanut butter, and plantains my friend ate a coronary burger which had bacon, a fried egg, and lots of mayo. If you get the double the bun are made of two grilled cheese sandwiches. I enjoyed the show since it was a lot like a conquerors show... individual acts and random group skits and songs in between. After the show I hung out and mingled with the beards (Andy Sandford, Dave Stone, Joe Zimmerman, and TJ Young). TJ I had met before and if you dig you'll find a post about him earlier in the blog. Joe was especially nice and hung out with me and my friends for a while after the show (maybe this was mostly beacause my two friends were girls). I also met the manager of the establishment... who actually used to manange The Funny Farm in Roswell which recently closed down. If you've never been to the vortex or the laughing skull I highly reccommend them. The inside has a crazy setup complete with skelletons riding motorcycles and pictures of naked goth girls hung on the walls. Basically a cool place to bring your family.

I've performed this event once before with the great Patrick the Red, host of the monthly show. It was off the train ya'll, the audience was all for the jokes, new or old they wanted to laugh their dicks off! It was crazy, intense, and the comedians kept coming. This Thursday, the show is about to go crazy with even more local comedians, wilder jokes, and the unpredictable nature of who will be showing up to perform!
Check out the Facebook event here:
Keep em laughin!

I was out with a couple of my friends drinking. We were at Lulu's which is sort of a chick bar where they sell chocolate and martinis. I told my friends that I would meet up later that I was going to go over to a bar where they were doing $1 beer night. So after being a little under the influence I was walking on River St. and I saw some Army guys making fun of everyone walking by. However I don't think they expected me to walk by that night. When they targeted me I was able to respond to him quickly. He said something lame like. "Hey is it tough for you being retarded." The guy had a Northern Accent so I responded something about him being retarded for being from the North. (Northerners hate when Southerners make fun of their intelligence.) The guy acted surprised I had a comeback. He responded "Where you from?" (Now I've many places both North and South i could have told him that... but where's the fun in that.) "Man, I'm from lots of places... Like 15 minutes ago I was from your mother's house" The guy's friend laughed crazy over this one... The one guy wasn't too amused. He tried to insult me back but they were rather lame. I mentioned that I was a stand-up Comedian and that he wasn't going to win.
It's sort of a mistake to mention this to some people cause then they want you to be an entertainer. I basically excepted their demands of humor and gave them exactly what they wanted which were dirty jokes and insulting them. I felt pretty calm insulting 6 Army guys... you know in case they took it too seriously. After one insult I remember one of the Army guys grabbing my shoulder aggressively and he gave me a cold look like he was going to punch me. After a long pause... He started laughing. I knew at that moment that I had won. Sometimes it's great being a comedian. I went to two bars that I have performed at and was treated very nice. Sometimes you have to have fun with people and not worry too much about the consequences.

Yeah, it's kind of blurry. But not as blurry as Josh had told me. The night he told me that that it was out-of-focus, I had a mental image of the international league of Bigfoots meeting: White, black, asian Bigfoots. Sort of like a Rainbow Coalition of Bigfoots.
So I took it upon myself to redraw it, so you can get a clearer picture of some sort. And I included EVERYONE, like Captain Planet and his buddy Jack Daniels.

It is inauguration day! I’m watching it in class, because it just so happens that my class started at 11 and the celebration starts at 11. My schedule this quarter did not work out in my favor for things like this. And Lost. and Heroes. Thank god for Hulu. This comic has also been written by Josh Wood, who is white. But he has a sense of humor no matter what level of racist it is. It seems today that it is a very low level of racism. Who knows what tomorrow will be like!
Head on over to my webcomic and check out more Obama-mania!
Would it be bad if Obama bootlegged a concert put on for his benefit? It’d be just the same as videotaping The Decemberists at your $10,000 prom, or recording a crappy comedian playing at your bat mitzvah. Could you get sued? Probably not. And what if it was illegal, and President Nixon bootlegged his inaugural concert? I imagine that when David Frost would ask him about it his response would be along the lines of, “I’m saying, if the president does it, then it’s not illegal!”
Happy presidency, Obama!

We loved this week because we got to hand out mini-comics that Jeremy made. We really like this comic because it melts two worlds together: stand-up comedy and comics. You should check out his webcomic which is based on our Headlines & Punchlines bit. If you received a comic, leave us a comment in our comments section after this post telling us what you think about it. Thanks to everyone who read it, kept it, and did not throw it away! I feel warm on my insides.

I'll be performing a great set and presenting comedy illustrations. Also, there will be guest appearances by "Gilbert Gottfried" and "Stan Lee" (Or at least our mockery of them). Come to the show at LiveWire Music Hall and receive a FREE Comic Book written and illustrated by me. Hilariously, it's serious.
See ya Saturday!
Correction: The flier says $3 but it should be $5. We apoligize for the mistake and it should be corrected soon.

Well I'm back from Atlanta, which means one thing, I am finally able to upload pictures and update my blog.... sorry 'bout that. I wanted to post about a couple of shows at the Funny Farm, including a show with headliner, Ben Bailey from Discovery Channel's Cash Cab. Ben was an incredibly nice and totally willing to talk to me and all his fans after his show. I appreciated his advice and thought his comedy was really clever. He made jokes that were specific to the city he was performing in which I thought to be hilarious since it added a personal feeling to his set. All in all the show was great and if you get the chance, go see Ben Bailey in all his glory.
I also met TJ Young who also performed and was the MC for the show. I loved TJ's clever and witty style of humor and appreciated his writing. Oddly he did remind me of Peter while he was on stage. TJ was extremely friendly to me after the show and we talked about the business. I mentioned to him the lack of venues in the Savannah area... His advice to me was to do what he did: "buy a place", which wouldn't be a bad idea if I wasn't going through school and actually had money. Maybe in the future. Check out his myspace page, he's a cool guy and I hope to meet him again down the road.
