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.

John Belushi

John Belushi was a comedian, actor, and musician. He is best known as a cast member on Saturday Night Live and for his roles in movies like Animal House and The Blues Brothers. He was the older brother of Jim Belushi, who has not been afraid to ride his brother’s coattails, even years after John’s death.

Of course John died of a drug overdose on March 5, 1982. I never realized until now that someone was charged for murder in his death, though later the charge was reduced to manslaughter, for shooting the drugs into John.

Drugs are horrible, even if you’re just the one pumping them into your friends.
