other people who are funnier than I am

Megan comments that "Clear is God's Favorite Color."

Baron Vaughn comments on his use of a portable CD player instead of an iPod: "People look at me like I'm carrying around an 8 track player plugged into a Victrola powered by a hamster chasing a piece of lettuce in a running wheel that I motivate with a tiny whip that is also a lightening rod in case the hamster tires or dies."

Eugene Mirman, writing in Village Voice blogs, booked a hotel room on Cheaptickets and tried to get a refund; you can listen to his customer service phone calls here. ("Tell me my baby has to sleep on the floor! Say it!")

At The Dark Show this past Wednesday, Schaffer sold CDs featuring all of the Dark Show performers. Since some of the performers were not musicians, it was unclear how this would be possible (while a comic might have recordings, Nasty Canasta (pictured), a burlesque dancer, doesn't even speak during her act, although her strip routine to a Mr. Rogers song was a sight to behold).

The CD turned out to contain voicemail messages by Nasty, improv group The Brothel, and comedian Roy Koshy.

Nasty called to try out her new strip routine ... over the phone. "See, there's a pair of gloves, but then there's another pair of gloves! Oh, wait, you don't see."

Roy called to say he had been selected for a "vegan blaxploitation film." There was something I couldn't quite catch about "jive tofurkey."
