James Adomian – “Thinnest Mustache Allowable By Law”

James Adomian Mustache

James Adomian is a stand-up comedian and actor. I saw him last night at Zanies in Chicago and he was really funny. I’d heard him many times doing characters like Jesse Ventura and Huell Howser on the Comedy Bang Bang podcast (he also appeared on an episode of the TV show on IFC). He’s not only hilarious, he has a great mustache that he described as the “thinnest mustache allowable by law.”

Trying to tell someone that you think a comedian is very funny can be tricky. I can recommend you go see James Adomian this weekend at Zanies in Chicago because he’s the funniest live comedian I’ve seen since Hannibal Buress, while my cousin Bryan would recommend you go see Jim Belushi because he’s the funniest guy he’s seen since Frank Caliendo. You’ll just have to realize that I have a sense of humor and Bryan has an “According to Jim” poster in his basement.

T.J. Miller: Performance Anxiety – TBS Just for Laughs Chicago

T.J. Miller brought his L.A. series of showcases to Up Comedy Club on Friday. It was a mix of local up and coming comedians with established comedians. The highlights for me included Matt Braunger, Brody Stevens (the only comedian all week that made me laugh so hard I cried a little) and T.J. Miller himself.

There were too many comedians to post every picture with a steesh. But what I will do is share this link with you, that explains how you can see the new first show of the Chicago version of Performance Anxiety tonight at the Pleasure Chest.
