1) While comedy has almost seem to taken Labor Day off, Patton Oswalt’s Finest Hour is airing tonight on Showtime at 10PM. That should cover most of your comedy needs for tonight.
2) Jamie Kilstein’s album “Libel, Slander, & Sedition” is available for pre-order on iTunes before it’s release next week. Interestingly enough, I think the title of this album gives a pretty good job description of a comedian.
3) First off, we are glad that local LA comedian Stretch Shp is recovering from violently being mugged last week. Still, Stretch is a perfect example of how many comics need to do comedy no matter the circumstance as (pic below) he performed with stitches in his head last night.
4) Keith Apicary’s Apicarnage gets reviewed by ScrewAttack.com before he goes on his nationwide tour.
5) Another site, Swagger.LA lists some of our favorite shows to go in LA even though they call them “alternative”. See why we hate this label here.
