Last Night, Brooklyn Skeptics ChezJJP, johnbaptisedme, pizappas, Plainclosthesman, and bearclaws went to the weekly Sunday comedy show Tearing the Veil of Maya, at Union Hall. This week it was emceed by Eugene Mirman (always hilarious), and featured Jamie Lee (pretty funny), DC Benny (just fucking awful), Pete Holmes (so funny I almost shot a snot rocket at the person sitting in front of me), and of course, Michael Showalter (also hilarious, in depth assessment to come). The show features different comics every week, and based on my one time going, I give it a 100% approval rating. Except DC Benny. So unfunny I wore a black band around my arm, in tribute to my ability to find joy through laughter.
The following are one audience member’s Showalter-specific reactions:
1. When Michael Showalter talks, he sounds like someone imitating Michael Showalter
2. He has a pattern of facial hair that I think is a map to sunken pirate treasure
3. If his routine is to be believed, he signs his e-mails “Sho(w).” I’m still organizing my feelings about that, but I don’t think I like it.
i was just kidding. please continue signing like that. you are better than me. love, emBEARassedclaws
