Courting Comedy Spotify Playlist: (6/6/2014)

"Power Slide" by Dan Cummins. Dan Cummins, playing this weekend in beautifully estranged Sunnyvale, is a funny guy. Likeability, the vague property of not being a piece of shit, does the man well. He’s great live, riffs well, a showman without folly.

"Relax/Sit" by Rory Scovel. I love Rory Scovel to death. He’s a real, honest to greatness artist and a demoralizingly funny comic. It’s like he’s not trying, which is infuriating in my own times of doubt. Will I ever be as funny as Rory? Probably not. Still, it does well to marvel his magesty, especially on his album Dilation, recorded at SF Punch Line (to which he returns this weekend.)

"The Rooster" by OutKast. I performed at Rooster T Feathers this week. I hope they invite me back. They play Outkast’s "The Rooster" as people file out (erudite pun) and their staff is always nice to me. Also, shout out to Chipotle.

"The Worst Possible Conclusion" by Michael Ian Black. Michael Ian Black works words and wonder this week at the beautiful and coveted Chapel on Valencia St. I’m listening to his album at work. He’s fast becoming my favorite black comedian since BET’s Faceman.

"Do Not Punch My Baby" by Brian Posehn. This weekend, native Brian Posehn shares the stage with T-Pain. No, wait, this is a lie.
