Last night I went to Rooster T. Feathers in beautiful Sunnyvale to see Jimmy Dore’s stand-up comedy show. It was great. He was hilarious. If you are in the Bay Area pop down to the show tonight or Sunday. Rooster T. Feathers is a great venue. (Link to get tickets).
I haven’t laughed this hard since seeing Maria Bamford at the Punchline in SF. (BTW, check out Maria Bamford’s interview on Fresh Air with Terry Gross)
I’m a huge fan of the Jimmy Dore Podcast (Here’s a link to the most current episode)
When I explain to people what the podcast is like I say. “It’s like the Daily Show, only on radio” and that usually hooks them. One of the guys on the podcast was a former Daily Show writer. ( Steve Rosenfield, )
It also usually includes the brilliant Frank Connif who wrote for Mystery Science Theater 3000. (Favorite Line, “Chris Christie voted for the Defense of Marinara Act”)
Besides the political comedy they do spot on funny phone calls with celebrities with Mike MacRae, doing Bill O’Reilly, Herman Cain, The Pope, Paula Deen, President Obama, and my favorite, Chris Christie.
I talked to Jimmy and Stef (America’s favorite Mex-I-CAN!) Zamorano after the show. I told him that I wanted to figure out a way to get more people to listen to the show. If you like comedy and a fan of Colbert and the Daily Show (both John versions) you NEED to listen to the Jimmy Dore show. Check it out.
It’s also available free on itunes, here’s the link. They also have subscriber-based extra material (where they get down and dirty funny in some of the extended phone calls with the foul mouthed Mitt Romney.)
The podcast covers politics and media and I think you will like it. If you don’t, you can get your money back.
