Favorite Things of Last Night: Amy Miller

[Amy Miller, performing this weekend at Cobb’s Comedy Club, is an anomaly. I last caught her set in April opening for Henry Phillips—scampy singer-songwriter—at the Punch Line. Prior to that, a long lull. That night, at the Punch Line, she was exceptionally funny, crisp, professional, and performed within herself (i.e. poised and keen). Then, last night at Cobb’s, in an uncannily short turnaround, she was even funnier. This clip is a great example of who Amy is and what Amy does (and it’s glorious to the senses). Check it out and share if you’re down with the get down]

Courting Comedy Spotify Playlist: (10/25/2013)

Another week, another digging. Check out this comedy covering the week of 10/19-10/25.

1. Craighlist Rideshare by Brent Weinbach. Cal Grad and early-nought San Francisco urban legend, Brent made his annual return to his home  club—the San Francisco Punch Linelast week. There’s so much to point out as interesting or unique with the Santa Monica playboy, but I’m growing fond of his accurate imitations of the Bay’s many affectations. I ain’t mad at it. 

2. The Crazy by Bobby Joe Ebola and the Children MacNuggits. Last Tuesday I was given access to BJE&CM’s live album recording: a fabulous display performed ever so quaintly for the band’s eccentric and influential cast of collegues. I had never heard “The Crazy” before the intimate soiree but was hooked after 3 minutes of communal, churchy clapping. Live — especially stripped to its bare bones — Bobby Joe Ebola and the Children MacNuggits are encompassingly awesome.

3. Babies by Erik Griffin. YO, Who went to Cobb’s last weekend?! There’s a lot of people in comedy that can rock their vibe all day. Griffin’s one of those guys: immensely aware, assured, and down-to-earth. On this selection he gets a lot of juice out of his post-natal contention, making deft points about cellphones and travel along the way.

4. What I Worship by Maria Bamford. I missed my opportunity to watch Bam Bam at Cobb’s last week, but I would be remiss not to include one of my favorite tracks from her recently released “Ask Me About My New God!”. Bamford is going to go down as one of the most on-point and naturally hilarious comedians to ever do it.

5. Don’t Lose Your Head by Eban Schletter and Vernon Wells. The inclusion of this track is a bit of a stretch. Not particularly humorous, and barely relevant to the “Bay Area” ideal of Courting Comedy (Schletter called SF home bay in the 90s). Nevertheless, the spooktacular Hallow’s Eve is on the horizon and this is the best I could do on such short notice!
