I watched the Justin Bieber Roast last night which was as good as expected.  It got me thinking about some of my favorite comedians.  Of course the famous ones, everyone knows about, but there are some really good, lesser known guys.  Moshe Kasher is one of my favorite guys, and he was one of the writers for last night's roast.  For the family men, Tom Papa is also very talented.

Tom Segura

Jim Gaffigan

Trever Noah (A South African comedian who is replacing Jon Stewart on the Daily Show)

 

Any recommendations or favorites?

So the Onion has some pretty funny images called strong side, weak side about athletes.  I figured on a slow Sunday before our boy Tom goes for 7 TDs to break his own record, I would skim through these images and post the Michigan related ones.  Please visit The Onion if you like these, so I feel less unbeveled guilt about bogarting their images..

I just finished rewatching the movie "What About Bob?'. I forgot how good of a comedy that was.

I need more suggestions for comedies. Good ones. I want to roll out of my Lazy Boy and wretch my stomach muscles.

We are entertaining a group of about 12 and have headlined the party as "A night of Comedy". We have loaded the bongs and prepared REALLY good food.

 

We need IDEAS for good DVD Comedy and we need this from the likes of MgoBlog. So, please rummage thru your wonderful brains and come up with a comedy or 2.

 

Thank you for your consideration. Blessings!

I don't know if the sweater-vested one has any real opinions about NBC's recent idiocy. I don't know the opinions of you folks out there in Internetland. What I do know is this: NBC and Ohio State are not that different. Both are respected institutions. Both have long legacies to live up to, and both are corporate sponsored (oh snap!). But seriously folks. I am an Ohioan. I have many friends who root for tOSU come hell or high water, and who have been with them in good times and bad. And that's all well and good. But looking at it as objectively as I can, they're really hard to like. They have a primadonna for a quarterback, No One with any real explosion on offense. A defense full of relative no-names (who probably won't be next year, but we're talking about the present here). One First-Team All-Conference player - Kurt Coleman (that's as many as Michigan had thanks to the Space Emperor). Zero on Rivals' list (Michigan had 3). Yeah, they win. That's more than NBC can say. But the victories are so lackluster and un-fun that I actually fell asleep during three OSU games (1 other game combined over the rest of the year). I guess I just don't get it. At the moment, in terms of likability, NBC and OSU have just about as much going for them. Kurt Coleman is 30 Rock. Terrelle Pryor is Jay Leno. Justin Boren is The Biggest Loser. I think we can all see the parallels here.
