Margot Leitman, Claudia Cogan, Christian Finnegan

I'm not gonna start saying anyone's my "favorite" comedian cause I clearly have a LOT of favorites (see the links above and to the left, which I can't seem to get in the proper place cause I'm not that nerdy, and can never figure out blogger templates), so here are some awesome upcoming shows, next week and May 3rd. My only only regret about having so many favorites is that I can't go see them all, because their events overlap, but that's okay. The more, the merrier! Check out some of these super funny people...I will soon blog about all the comedy stuff I've been going to. Comedy Pro Shop last night totally rocked. Christian Finnegan cracked me up with his "How Is This My Fault" bit about traveling with his gf, my first time seeing Rachel Feinstein was utterly hilarious as she did impressions of her Jewish liberal hippie mom meeting her Puerto Rican boyfriend, and Joe Devito bravely showed us his high school photo. Rob sang a funny song about a girlfriend, I honestly forget how it went, but his songs are always goofy, in a good way.

“Just Here For the Day”
a comedy about growing up, working in an elementary school, selling out,
becoming a reluctant role model, rock n roll, and Kiefer Sutherland.

Claudia Cogan is doing a TON of shows next week - my money's on this one (and I'll be going to it too):

Stand up, per usual, but done on the inside of an actual club! We're talking tables, stage, draperies - the whole nine. All I need is you to come and watch 'cause I'm being taped. In a good way, not a shadow government way.
