SF Sketchfest: Comedy Death Ray

We saw Comedy Death Ray at Cobb's on Friday night. It was entertaining, but not particularly impressive. Andy Kindler did a scathing impression of Dane Cook, which was great because Dane Cook sucks and should be ridiculed as often as possible. There were surprise appearances by Jon Hamm (Mad Men) and Samm Levine (Freaks and Geeks), in an enthusiastic but uninspired American Idol parody skit, which I really wanted to like, but couldn't.

The rest was mainly stand-up, and for the most part, it was amusing but sort of flat. Funny, but not hilarious. A lot of it seemed tentative and unrehearsed.

But Zach Galifianakis made fun of me! Woo! I've never been singled out by a comedian before, so that was very exciting. I informed him that "I write really boring reviews of, like, services, like, technology services, like VoIP and identity theft protection." He didn't know what VoIP was. Fortunately, Andy Kindler chimed in and informed him (Voice over Internet Protocal) while I stammered, "It's like, phone, over the Internet. It's cheaper." Yup, awesome.
