Comedy Central Presents: Jamie Lissow

A friend of mine has been pushing the name Jamie Lissow for years now, so seeing his first Comedy Central Presents certainly caught my attention this past weekend. The two things that stuck out at me most were his affinity for pointing out the mechanics of joketelling to the audience, and a mannerism or two that suggested a super slow-motion version of Brian Regan. Feel free to disagree. We also learned in this set about the perils of renting a studio apartment in New York City, how skateboarders aren't the best athletes, and why Lissow is not a big fan of magicians or ventriloquists. Roll the clips!
