Live Comedy!

So I recently went to Comedy Off Broadway and saw comedian Craig Shoemaker.  Very, very funny!  I find live comedy makes me laugh much more than comedy on TV.  It seems to put you in the experience when you're sitting right next to the comedian, and of the course the atmosphere helps.  When everyone around you is laughing, you tend to laugh, too.  Has that been proven?  Who knows...

Anyway, here's a clip of Craig.  Enjoy!  His show was especially hilarious since his material was all new to me.



Any comedians you recommend seeing?

  11. I've seen a few live comics that SUCKED, though... It can be really hit or miss depending on the crowd and the venue, too. But yeah, live stand up is typically better than TV.

  15. I went to a live comedy a few years ago. It was pretty funny, but I always seem to laugh more when I'm comfortable in my house.

  18. To answer your question; yes, it has been proven. It's a pretty recognized sociological factor in which people ARE more compelled to laugh to demonstrate their enjoyment when around others.
