Nearly Peed My Pants

So we are at a comedy show last night with BIL and SIL. We laughed our asses off, every single comedian was hysterical. I almost died when the comedian Kevin Knox joked about how with girls when their favorite song comes on at a club how insane they get. I right then and there shrunk into my seat…that’s me :wave:

John Turco was joking about the sayings his father would use when he was younger such as “you don’t know the difference between shit and shinola”, which btw I’d never heard of before. The guy asked the audience if anyone knew what “shinola” meant.

Of course my walking encyclopedia man knew what it meant and his brother encouraged him to yell it out. So Erik yells out “shoe polish!” Believe it or not the guy actually created brand new material from that, Erik felt pretty special.

Here is a piece I found on his myspace:

“Beaten like a red-headed step child”. Ever hear that? Why do the red-headed step children get it the worst. No one ever seems to pick on the blonde step children. And why is it that only step children seem to catch a beating. I have plenty of friends that were beaten soundly by their natural parents. Never knew any red-heads though. How about this: “Beaten like a brown-haired half brother”. I bet that’s something you’ll never hear.

We loved DJ Hazard and his Bruce Springsteen version of “Take Me Out To The Ball Game” to show he can make any song depressing. He’s got a bunch of comedic songs on his site.

I can’t forget Danny Hirshon who I cannot find anywhere online who I just now found his website because his name was listed as John on the Strand website. He’s young and seems a little greener than the other comedians but I have love for my Jew comedians.

Thanks again Strand Theater for such a great show! My jaw was severely hurting after this show and in a good way :D
