Dave is one of the most dedicated guys I have seen come out of Atlanta. He took me on my first feature gig. He’s one of the four “Beards Of Comedy,” A RooftopComedy.com “Silver Nail” winner and a consummate professional. This is just one of at least three different “radio” themed jokes he has that are absolutely killer.
This is one of the first jokes I ever heard from Jason. There’s something about the guy’s delivery that just kills me. I had the pleasure of helping him promote his Rooftop sponsored “Quarter Life Crisis Tour.” I’m fortunate enough to call him one of my closest friends. Don’t think I’ve ever laughed harder at or with anyone in my life.
This bit is so good, I personally witnessed the owner of a comedy club send Dan back onstage to perform it as an encore after he had already ended his set. It was his calling card for well over a year. Weeks is the guy in Atlanta everyone wants to work with, even named by his peers “The Most Influential Comedian In Atlanta.”
This dude is my arch-nemisis. “Hate” is taking it lightly. I’m not kidding. If I found him in the streets, the greatest screaming match in history would occur. I would arm wrestle him to death. I want to drop kick him in his dumb stupid hair. If he weren’t so funny I wouldn’t even be bringing him up ... but he is. He’s crazy funny. And this is a very funny bit.
As this joke obviously shows, Andy is a brilliant writer. The community as a whole continues to look up to him for his ability to structure a joke so well. He’s the wordplay king of Atlanta. He’s been named the best comedian in Atlanta by so many sources, it’s just plain ridiculous. He’s also one of the “Beards Of Comedy.”
Mike Kaiser is my favorite comic in Atlanta right now. He’s a genius through and through. Not just from a comedic stand point either ... the guy was at some point recently working on a Ph.D (He still probably is, I don’t know.) He’s intellectual. He’s calm. He’s collected. He’s just plain fucking good.
You know a guy is good when every comic in the place stays in the room to watch his set, as opposed to going back to the green room. Landry is the comic that everyone watches. He’s energetic, crazy personable and so so funny. Every club in Atlanta wants the dude with a Jheri Curl and the face of Sayid from LOST.
He’s from GA. This guy apparently did one stand up show in Atlanta and then decided he was so good that it was time to move to New York. He worked hard at it, did some stuff for a little site called CollegeHumor.com, then he decided he was so good that he would place in the “Caroline’s Final Four” this year. Who does he think he is? I mean really ...
This is without question the most universally known opener to a set in the city of Atlanta. One of the most quoted jokes of the past year in our comedy community. Jokes are supposed to be less funny the more you hear them. This one works every. single. time.
My favorite joke from the nicest person that has ever lived. He really is. He makes Mother Teresa look like butthead. The guy is a saint, plain and simple. I’ve never seen a single ounce of cynicism or bitterness come from him. He’s also the winner of the first ever “Laughing Skull Comedy Festival” competition, so he’s kind of the best. Find him. Support him. Laugh at his funnies.
