I check in once in awhile on the standup scene. I can't believe how listless stale and derivative it has become. If this is 'fresh' and up and coming talent I am Mother Theresa. There are actual jokes I remember from 15 years ago. A fat lesbian has a problem with the gay Chik-Fil-A boycott because she likes to eat Chik-Fil-A and she's fat and obviously likes junk food and... this is the joke. When the first comic blew away his opening two minutes with random talky anecdotal rubbish - those precious few minutes when an audience decides whether they will like you are not... I didn't expect much afterwards. I fast forwarded through the whole line-up and NOT ONCE did I feel compelled to 'stay and listen'.
