7 Funny Things - #2
Stand-Up on the Spot, Are You Garbage? Podcast, Shapel Lacey, Dante Nero, Bobby Kelly, and more!
There’s so much funny content out there that it’s hard to narrow it all down to seven funny things. Don’t worry though. I figured it out for you.
Stand-Up Set: Stand-Up On The Spot Episode #1
This is the first episode of a long-running stand-up show hosted by Jeremiah Watkins where comedians perform improvised stand-up sets based on audience suggestions. This episode features Erik Griffin, Annie Lederman, Ryan Sickler, and Jeremiah Watkins and was filmed at The World Famous Comedy Store! This is the first of a series of Stand-Up On The Spot episodes that they have been filming and all of these comedians trusted Jeremiah with recording a very intimate side of them: no preparation, no material. This is a nightmare for a lot of comics. Since they are cool enough to put themselves out there in this raw of a format, be cool back to them. Not every moment of this special is laugh out loud hilarious. That's what makes it so unique and raw. Reach out to them on social media and send them some love!
Podcast: Pete Holmes - Are You Garbage (LIVE) with H. Foley and Kevin Ryan
Are You Garbage comedy podcast is back with stand up comedian, podcast host, actor Pete Holmes filmed live at the Moontower Comedy Festival in Austin, TX. I’ve been a fan of these three comedians for awhile and their chemistry on stage makes for a hilarious episode.
Stand-Up Set: Shapel Lacey - Don’t Tell Comedy
Shapel Lacey kills in this set! He masterfully shares hilarious stories about his life for a fun, easy watch.
Special: Chris Distefano: Speshy Weshy
Chris Distefano released a stand-up special on Netfilx that is definitely worth the watch! I can’t put full specials from Netflix in this newsletter so the trail will have to do. Chris is a funny stand-up and is hilarious to listen to on a podcast. Go watch his special before Netflix makes you pay for your own account.
Podcast: Rachel Feinstein, Mike Cannon - You Know What Dude with Robert Kelly
Bobby Kelly is one of the most underrated comedians in the world and he consistently hosts hilarious comedians on his podcast. This episode features Rachel Feinstein and Mike Cannon. If you haven’t seen any of these comedians before, you will instantly become a fan!
Podcast: Joe DeRosa - The Bonfire Radio Show with Big Jay Oakerson & Dan Soder
The Bonfire makes me wish I had a subscription to Sirius XM. The release short clips of the show as a podcast and you should definitely check it out. Jay and Dan make one of the best broadcasting duos on air. In this episode they do impressions of Dave Chappelle’s entourage beating up the person that rushed the stage during Dave’s show at the Hollywood bowl. It’s great, trust me.
Clip: Dante Nero

Dante Nero makes his stab wounds funny. I think the clip speaks for itself. It’s funny.
