We will still laugh,just not as often.

This is the hardest post I've had to put up. Patrice O'Neal (December 7, 1969 – November 29, 2011) passed away from suffering a stroke back in October.  I never saw Patrice live and I will always regret not doing so.

Patrice had a style that was all his own. His laugh was as original and captivating as his humor. He was probably the only person that could make the Pope laugh at a rape joke. That's what was so impressive about Patrice,even if you didn't agree with what he was saying,you were still going to laugh at it. He was loud,forceful, and a genius. That term get's thrown around a lot but it hold so true with a man that changed comedy forever. I'm really at a lost because my writings can not convey how important he was to comedy. It will never be the same.

Please even if you haven't heard Patrice go buy "Elephant in the Room" and his NEW CD "Mr.P" which you can download on itunes or amazon. All proceeds will go to his family to help with medical bills. Good bye Patrice,you will be severely missed.

I'm back!

I stopped doing this blog awhile back because truthfully it didn't seem like anybody was reading this. Well fuck it,I enjoy and am going to pick it back up. I hope (if anyone is reading this) you enjoy some of my post and please feel free to add to the blog.

Joe Rogan podcast to join Sirius/XM "The Virus"

This weekend Joe Rogan's podcast will begin on Sirius/Xm channel 206/105 Saturday at noon and again Sunday at 5am and 6pm. Rogan is fantastic and his podcast ranks up there with the best on the net. I know Rogan is known by some/most for his role in the "UFC" but he is one of the best stand-up's in the country! If you only know him from "UFC" I highly urge you to check out his podcast either on it's websiye listed below or on Sirius/XM. As always with Rogan I always have to say "Thank you" to Mr. Rogan for busting out that fraud Carlos Mencia which you can see the clip a few post below. I'm sure Rogans podcast will become a main stay on Sirius/XM as has Kevin Smiths smodcast.

The most under-rated man in comedy: Ron Bennington

Everybody has heard of Bill Cosby,Jim Norton,Bob Saget, and Bob Newhart but not everyone has heard such in depth and thought provoking interviews as what you experiance with a Ron Bennington interview. Ron is known from the "Ron and Fez" show thats on Sirius/XM channel 105 as a very intelligent and very funny and quick witted style of humor.

Ronnie B. started as a stand-up comedian in Florida and later got into radio. Radio is when Ronnie B. started to get the opportunity to do what I think he does best,interview. He is the creator and host of the best show for interviews with comedians called "Unmasked". Bennington can hold is own with any subject on any matter and it really makes for gripping interviews. His topics can range from comedy back grounds to events that have shaped and changed the comedians lives. The reason over and above all else that makes "Unmasked"(and his new project Ron Bennington Interviews with all sorts of celebs) such a hit is Ron's true love for stand-up comedy. I know some will think this is a overstatement but I do believe his "Unmasked" shows are some of the most important captions of comedy in our generation. People like Ronnie B. is why I love stand-up comedy as much as I do.

If you're a die hard fan of comedy or just enjoy a good interview with a broad range of guest than you can't find anyone better at it than Ronnie B. Please check out the links I have supplied below and I'm going to add the on the side bar also,and I promise you will find a interview that you wanna hear and you'll love it! Also if you have Sirius/XM check out channel 105 The Virus for the best comedy in space and take a listen to see if you agree that Ron Bennington IS the most under-rated man in comedy!

Stand-up podcast.

For anyone interseted in some stand-ups that have weekly podcast you're in luck cause I have find some good ones for ya! First off is Marc Marons podcast "WTF".This is a great podcast with not only great guest like Andy Dick,Bobcat Goldwait,and Ed Helms but he even has some of his live on stage act that you can easily listen too. If your not familar with Marc Maron you should really check out this podcast because he is a great stand-up and is really under-rated as a host.

The last one I wanted to add is a personal favorite of mine and thats Bill Burr's "Monday Morning Podcast". Burr is one of the best stand-up comedians out there and his "no holds bar" podcast just proves how funny he is. The best thing about this podcast is a lot of it feels like your just hanging out shooting the shit with him as they don't really have a set "start here,end here" kind of feel. Burr is at his best expressing his true feelings and in these podcast thats what you get.

So please go check out these two great podcast as I'm sure you will add them to your weekly routine. If anybody else has any great podcast,please send me a email or a comment and let me know. Thanks
