This year's May 5 may have been really fun for me personally, but it still has a way to go to match the Cinco de Mayo when I hosted the Seattle Underground open mic, with this lineup written and prepared by Carl Warmenhoven. The only names missing from that list from that year are Brody Stevens (who had just escaped to NYC, although his former TV partner, Teina Manu, performed) and Joel McHale — yes, that Joel McHale from NBC's Community and E!'s The Soup (who was performing improv and sketch in Seattle, but hadn't yet done stand-up).
How many names do you know and love on this list?
