Ballgame’s Laugh Lounge: 818 Till I Die!

by Brendon Mulvihill on August 5, 2009 in Stand-Up

The Hangover’s Brody Stevens (err…Steven Brody Stevens…he played the cop) hit the Laugh Lounge last night along with the great Tom Segura, a killer set from Tom Clark, and a newcomer who I really enjoyed, Jon Tomashefsky.

Brody is by far the most unique comedian in the city. He doesn’t do jokes so much. He just talks. But it’s the way he talks. His cadence. His mannerisms. They’re hilarious. And he just says off the wall shit. Last night he said, “My family is from New Mexico. Pioneering Jews of the Southwest!”. In classic Brody style, he did his set from the middle of the room. Also, if you love Los Angeles like I do…no other comedian incorporates the city in his routine more than Brody. It’s cool. You have to see it to appreciate it. And it may take you a few times to appreciate him…but eventually you will.

Segura is always great. I’m happy he’s been on the road with Rogan lately. Clearly big things are going to happen for him. I hate to say I told you so…but…get ready.

I got to see Tom Clark and Jon Tomashefsky for the first time. Clark was awesome. He has a quick, off the wall style. And Tomashefsky seems very comfortable on-stage. Very conversational. It puts the audience at ease.

Good times at Ballgame’s again. Matty actually called me an Editor-in-Chief. Makes me laugh. But I dig it.

UPDATE:
When I wrote this post last night I was remiss in mentioning Keith Ernst. He continues to be a very consistent comedian. There is a natural tendency to compare him to Bret, which may or may not suck for Keith…I don’t know. But really, he’s good. Anyway, that’s all I got this morning.
