I hope everyone’s weekend was awesome! Mine was pretty interesting! I photographed two concerts and was shown some really awesome new music. I love being a concert photographer because you become exposed to new artists or artists you never heard of and you instantly become a fan! I’ll post more about the concerts and new music later in the week, but for now, let’s get into Music Monday! This week I’ve decided to shake things up and actually recommend some comedic recommendations that I think you’ll dig. Another thing I loved about being in SoCal, was the ability to go see some awesome comedy! I love Comedy Central and usually am recording the new stand up specials every weekend. So I hope you enjoy my recommendations!
* Jo Koy. I actually saw him before I moved to SoCal. I was out there visiting and happened to go get into the Laugh Factory one night. He is absolutely hilarious. He is a regular on the round table on the TV show, Chelsea Lately. He’s a favorite in the LA comedy scene and has toured with such comics as: Russell Peters, Chelsea Handler, Whitney Cummings, Loni Love and plenty more! I’m excited for April because he’ll be here in Austin with Chelsea Handler.
* Dov Davidoff. I saw him with one of my good friend Chelsea, in LA at the The Comedy Store. We were there to watch Dane Cook and Dave Attel and Dov did a set that night. I was instantly a fan and as soon as I got home I dled his CD from itunes. He has this scruffy, scratchy voice and his material is definitely relatable! He doesn’t tour much but I’m dying for a chance to see him again as well as get new material out! Definitely add him on facebook and dl his cd from iTunes.
* Daniel Tosh. I’ve been in love with this guy for a long time! His sense of humor is pretty much parallel to mine! I saw him at the Laugh Factory in LA and was blown away by how sick his sense of humor is! I got ahold of his cd and dvd specials and memorized his set. 🙂 And as luck would have it, he received his own show on Comedy Central called Tosh.O. I absolutely love this show. His dry sarcasm and witty commments make me laugh until I cry every episode. His show comes on Wednesday night @ 9:30. Check it out!
* Nick Swardson. I haven’t gotten to see him live but he’s definitely on the list! He played Terry on Reno 911, one of my favorite shows! He recorded his latest cd in Austin! He’s been in several movies, including two of my favorites, Grandma’s Boy and Blades of Glory. Check out his comedy and his movies… totally a funny funny funny sarcastic demeanor! Loves it! TERRRRRRRRRYYYYYY!
I have so many more comedians that I would love to reccoommend. I think I’ll do a comedy music Monday every so often. I hope you check out them out and give me some feed back! Here are a couple of sneak peeks from the Cory Morrow concert in San Marcos, Saturday night!

Love it, live it, capture it!
