Last Comic Standing’s take on Mel Gibson lets Andy Kindler go off on a rant on Oksana-like comedian

I've received more than a few emails from people with their own spoofs of the leaked Mel Gibson phone calls, but only one of them comes with an ad for Last Comic Standing at the end of the video. So who wants to bet we see this on the show Monday night?

The Comedy Store adds signatures to its wall for first time in eight years; Names Night tonight

Perhaps you have seen some of the legendary names of comedians on the wall outside of The Comedy Store along West Hollywood's Sunset Boulevard. For the first time in nearly eight years, the comedy club has added to the list of names. The celebration, known as Names Night, happens tonight at the club. As the club wrote on its Comedy Store Tumblr: "Names Night means so much to the comics being honored.  It solidifies their place at The Comedy Store and is physical proof of the great efforts they have put in to their careers.  We will have comics performing in the Original Room and a reception in the Main Room with floating photographers, food, and comic interviews.  Very special guests will be dropping by including Louie Anderson, Andrew ‚ÄúDice‚Äù Clay, and more! There will be a private reception for honorees that night, but the general public is welcome to attend the show for free (21+, 2-drink minimum)" Who is getting added to the list? I have the list right here: Alex Moore, Bill Burr, Brian Scolaro, Bryan Callen, Chris D'Elia, Chris Porter, Cisco, Cort McCown, Damienne Merlina, Darwin Hines, Davey Wester, Don Richardson, Dov Davidoff, Duncan Trussell, Eleanor Kerrigan, Erik Griffin, Fortune Feimster, Francisco Ramos, Freddy Lockhart, Greg Dean, Ian Edwards, Iliza Shlesinger, Jamie Kennedy, Jay Davis, Jeff Danis, Jeff Scott, Jodi Miller, Josh Nasar, Justin Martindale, Kaye West, Keith Ernst,...
