We say this a lot, but AST Records keeps the cavalcade of amazing comedians recording albums coming. At the very end of this month, AST has the amazing Guy Branum (SF00s) recording his very first comedy album at the at the always awesome Nerdmelt Showroom.

It’s free to attend, so mark this down for Thurs. July 31st, 7PM as what you will be doing, hopefully.

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]
