This short comic is outright hilarious. My brothers and I saw it once about 15 years ago and recorded it on a cassette and passed it out to everyone we knew. We haven't stopped laughing about it or watching it since. We just ordered it on disc and can't wait until it arrives. My best friend is gay and could not stop laughing through the entire show.We have gotten dozens and dozens of people hooked on this short cartoon. We are trying to find other short cartoons like this one. I can't seem to find any more by this particular comedian.If anyone knows of any, please let me know. I would definitely recommend this to anyone.
