Well, you know, but you’re feeling bad, so you start thinking ‘Oh, what a waste of space, I’m a burden.’ You forget that also describes the Grand Canyon. Why don’t you have friends and family take pictures of you from a safe distance, revel in your majestic profile? ‘Oh, but I owe people a lot of money, everybody hates me.’ Hello, Europe! ‘Oh, but I killed someone!’ So, onion rings, firecrackers, who gives a shit? ‘Oh, but I’ve done some other horrible, unforgivable, unspeakable thing.’ There’s…79 billion of us now. Uh…Google it. Someone has done exactly what you have done, or worse, and is currently on a book tour. YOU’RE NEVER ALONE!

Reenactment of me asking Delta if I’ll be getting upgraded on my flight tomorrow.

BTW, I just ran into Todd Barry on the F train like… 3 hours ago. awesome, I love this man.

some highlights of tonight’s comedic showdown:

+ Eugene Mirman’s review of Comic Con

+ n-word cat video commentary

+ The Taint Monologues

+ angry black female storming the stage during Butthole Surfers comedian’s offensive & racist set, only to be blasted in the face with confetti

+ Todd Barry calling out a woman who decided to read during his set, and a woman who shouted for him to speak louder

none of the above is funny to anyone except the people who were there tonight. but I don’t care, I’m still laughing just remembering the antics of tonight.
