Oceans of Jokes, Rivers of Tears

posted by on July 26 at 15:36 PM

Hey! Were you guys at Laff Hole last night, as per Brendan Kiley’s demands? Did you get all your holes properly stuffed full of laffs?

Well, I sure did. It was fucking awesome.

Despite the obvious undercurrent of heartbreak brought on by Hari Kondabolu’s departure, this was one of the best Laff Holes I’ve ever been to. It was packed, you were drunk, everyone was funny.

I could never say enough good things about Hari, who—in addition to being an excellent pal, a highly principled smartypants, and the opposite of a jerk in every way—was instrumental in bringing the Seattle scene to its current kickass funtime state. Now he’s moving to London to become a genius (like we need one more of those). And you should all be fucking bummed. I am.

By the way, if any of you have never seen David Cope do comedy before (I hadn’t), you should. He fucking killed it last night with this video. Watch it. The video is on Myspace, not Youtube, so I don’t know how to embed it, but let’s just say that the Myspace kids rated it “93% Booyah!” (Furthermore, Ari Spool, in a private communique which I will now make public, called David Cope “seriously the funniest guy in the city and totally going to take Hari’s place on the Seattle comedy throne.”)

Emmett Montgomery assured me that next week’s Laff Hole is going to be “ambitious” and then some really positive adjective that I forgot. Anyway, I’d go to it if I were you.

Gooo comedy!

We saw David Cope open a BloodSquad performance a month or so back. Who knew the harp could be so frgging funny?

Speaking of good comedy - I'm going to Dartmondo tonight at the Central Cinema. I saw Hari hear a couple shows ago and he was fantastic. The food and the comedy will both be excellent tonight. (I'll be getting the $4 pizza and a creme brule.) 9:30 pm. Check it out:
