Comedy Central Presents: Rebecca Corry

If the physical comedy of Rebecca Corry looks familiar, then perhaps you saw this petite powderkeg high-kicked her way into the finals of the fourth season of Last Comic Standing. And you thought I was going to go with some sort of Dane Cook reference? For her first Comedy Central Presents, Corry, all of 4-foot-11, bobs and weaves around the stage — with a backdrop showing some of her many poses in action. She wonders how rock stars get away with things other occupations don't, what it must be like to be Brad Pitt's brother, how she is a bad dater but wants to date Jesus Christ anyhow, baby showers, math, sibling rivalries, and the raw pain of a Brazilian wax.

He says he realizes he is about as tough as a mustache on a blond guy. And did he mention that his father is an interior decorator? Yes, he did. But Pete Lee also acknowledges that he is passive-aggressive, and wants you to remember this one handy insult: "You look fat when you cry." Roll the clip!

The Shut Up Song (Los Angeles comedian lip dub)

It's always interesting to me as a follower of comedians to see talented performers move from New York City to Los Angeles, or vice versa, and also tracking the hows and the whys of these decisions. But what about all of those other people who say they're going to move to L.A. and become famous? Well, J. Chris Newberg has a song for you about that, and in his new video for it, he got plenty of L.A.-based comedians on camera (and several also lip dub for him). I have met about a handful of these folks. How many do you recognize. It's "The Shut Up Song."...
