Dude, no comedian is worth 100 bucks a ticket and that goes for Eddie Murphy in his prime. 40-50 bucks is where I draw the line and if I can get cheap seats for 10 bucks you better believe I would go with that instead.

Well that's the other kicker here. This is the Scottrade center. A freaking indoor arena. These cheap seats, I would not be able to see his face. It would be a waste of time.

What do you normally pay for a comedy show? I don't think what they are charging is even on par of what you get at a rock concert. I love a good laugh, but not at those prices. The comedians and Ticketmaster are the ones getting the last laugh.....literally.

I no longer pay to see comedians. They are too available to see and hear. I don't get all caught up in the hype like I do with music. I paid pretty good money many moons ago to Bill Cosby for the kids. But it is all just comedy. Some people really place them on a pedestal like a rock star. Ain't gonna do it.

I don't know what the more popular acts bring in. Blue Collar guys or Lewis Black or Louie CK. I would think $40-$50. Even that is too much for comedy.

Bobcat Goldthwait: You Don't Look the Same Either



I've always have been a fan of Bobcat. I'm not sure where I first saw him. Maybe the bit parts in the Police Academy movies. I distinctly remember his stand-up specials on cable. Loved them.

Last night I got to watch his stand up again "You Don't Look the Same Either" and more than happy to report, I haven't laughed this hard and long in a very long time. Bobcat is crude and pushes the boundry's just enough to make you go Oh Gawd, but laugh your ass off.

The title is so appropriate because he looks nothing the same as 20-30 years ago. But his humor is primo. In his stand up, on occasion, he mentions other things he does and looking at Wiki, I am blown away at his other talents. He is a busy man with diverse interests. Mostly directing.

I highly recommend checking him out. Super funny.

Where did you see this? I've enjoyed his comedy over the years, but I haven't followed him much lately.

Actually from his opening, it has been a very long time since he's done any stand-up. Doing those other things.

His special is on Showtime currently. Check the link

Demetri Martin

Demetri's humor is eclectic. I really can't compare him to anybody else, except may Steven Wright.
He's laid back with a dry delivery. He does stand up, funny songs, skits and drawings in his act. He even had his own show for a bit.

I just picked up his book... This Is A Book

Just a mashup of stories, drawings and small bits. I laughed out loud at a few things.

Honestly, all I knew of Alan Thicke was his stints on network TV that I never watched. Now, after being a guest on Bill Maher, he is the father of artist Robin Thicke, yet more importantly opened my eyes to how funny he is. Instantly took a liking to him. Ill be reading his blog in Huffington Post as well.

I could see myself sitting with him over drinks and just having a hell of a good time.

You lie if you say you've never watched Growing Pains!! You have a Growing Pains tattoo on your back.

Gary Owen

Watched Gary Owen last night and loved it. I guess my experience of dating black women had a lot to do with relating to the things he discusses. He is in a interracial marriage and primarily that relationship pretty much makes up his standup.Funny as hell and as usual a kernel of truth. He even goes further and confidently crosses lines I don't think many other white comedians can do.

Keep an eye for this guy.
