T.G.I.F. – Ten More Laughs

Friday again. Long week. Need laughs.

Occasionally I’ve found some great comics and comedy albums just trolling through Amazon, CD Baby and similar sites, something I’ve always done with music. There’s too many acts, too little time, not enough filters. Amazing how much you’ll miss if you don’t do your own digging.

Last week I had some video clips. Here are links to audio clips from ten comics you might not be familiar with.

Jimmy DoreReally?  All Catholics grow up with guilt, a naturally great source of material.

Costaki EconomopoulosC’mon, It’s Jokes  Great writer turned great performer, a career arc that worked well for Woody Allen.

Caroline RheaWhat is it You Can’t Face? Worth it for the Sound of Music joke alone.

Jeff CaldwellI’m No Epidemiologist  I wrote a feature on him a short time ago but he’s worth another plug. Great delivery.

Tom PapaCool, Calm and Collected.  Perfected the self-deprecating angle. Very funny, slick and sly.

Rocky LaPorteWho Knew?   Old school style, like Rodney Dangerfield with ADD.

Alonzo BoddenSeemed Like a Good Idea At The Time.  Not many of the Last Comic Standing people were that funny when all was said and done. You knew right away this guy was good.

Pat DixonWhite Devil.  Rude and crude, but funny. It’s been seven years, Pat – new one please?

Jesse Cash:  Where Are The Bees?  Dysfunctional observational comedy. That’s not a double negative.

Chard HoganChard Remains.  Silly, sarcastic and high energy; lots of short jokes and many hit the mark.

Life is short – laugh every day.
