The above title is a pun, or play on words, if you prefer. Some may call it a quip, or witticism, without the wit part. Bon mot anyone? I took the expression "this is a stick up" and ran with it. Many people say puns are the lowest form of humor, not counting Dane Cook. Those people are correct. Is Dane Cook still a current reference? Insert Larry the Cable Guy if that makes you feel better. That last sentence doesn't sound right.
Wednesday, May 7, at 11:35 PM on CBS, I will be appearing on the Late Show with David Letterman. Please watch. I implore you. When was the last time you were implored? I was just recently beseeched. What would I do without my online thesaurus? I would be lost. Adrift. At sea, and also astray.
Starting Sunday, May 11, the Stand Uppity tour begins. It's finally here. Everyone is talking about it, especially Marc Maron and Eugene Mirman, the other comics on the tour. Now it's your turn to make a difference. Sure you do a lot already. You text your vote for American Idol, and participate in CNN viewer polls. That's great. Why not really change the world and buy tickets to see a comedy show? Quit your job, rent a van and catch all nine shows. For tickets, info, or information go here:
