Comedy Clubs Still Love That Brick Background, Just Like in Mitch Hedberg’s Fairy Tale

“Now let me ask you this, why do you think there is a brick wall behind comedians? Maybe in the old days, there was a wolf that did comedy. All the old clubs had straw in the back. But the wolf would have a bad set, and would huff and puff and fuck shit up. Then we went to the sticks. And once again, he huffed and puffed. And fucked shit up. Now we’re at bricks, and the wolf can’t do shit. That’s The Improv fairy tale.”

If I start to lose control, I’ll hit one of these cars with people! Or at least a trailer with just plain old horses.

Rap Has Only Evolved to Become Weirder Since Chris Rock Delivered This One

“I love rap music, but I’m tired of defending it. You gotta defend rap music, ‘cause people always go, ‘That’s not music, that’s not art. How can you listen to that garbage? How can you listen to that trash?’ In the old days, it was easy to defend rap music. It was easy to defend it on an intellectual level. You could break it down intellectually why Grandmaster Flash was art, why Run DMC was art, why Whodini was art. And I love all the rappers today, but it’s hard to defend this shit. It’s hard, man, it’s hard to defend, ‘I got hoes in different area codes.’ On an intellectual level. It’s hard to defend ‘Move, bitch, get out the way.’ Well, as you can see, there’s a bitch in his way. Now he needs to move. Thus the term, ‘Move, bitch, get out the way.’”

Jim Jefferies Predicted Death Panels a Year Before the Controversy Around Obamacare (Only, in His Telling, They’re Swedish and Strictly Aesthetic)

“The Swedish people are the best looking people I have seen in my entire life. I didn’t see one ugly fucker, the whole time I was there. I think they might be killing the ugly people. I’m not saying they’re walking around killing people; they’re doing it from birth. They’ll be like… a woman giving birth, there’ll be a doctor and an official guy in the corner. The doctor pulls the baby out, shows it to the official bloke. He goes: ‘No.’ The doctor gets the baby’s head, throws it in the corner, with all the other ugly, dead babies. And it’s such a rational breed, I don’t even think the woman would be upset. I think she would just be going, ‘Was it ugly, was it? Thank you for saving me from the shame. It’s my own fault, I shouldn’t have had sex with a Scottish man.’”

Daniel Tosh Being Surprisingly Wholesome in 2007

“A leopard can carry two times its body weight into a tree. I don’t have a joke for that yet. But it is accurate and just in case you hate my stand-up at least you can leave going, ‘You know what?

It feels warmer. Tahoe’s west of L.A.? Bullshit, Snapple!’ Then I saw a globe and I’m like: ‘I’m sorry, Snapple. You are always right.’
