I would’ve posted a link yesterday but I was on the road for a total of eight hours (five of them from 10:30 p.m. to 3:30 a.m.). Why?
One of my best friends from home graduated in Decemeber and he’s an avid Ferrell disciple (though he claims “Anchorman” over “Talladegha Nights” for second best Ferrell). As a “congrats graduate and new-job-market-guy” gift, we embarked on a comedy pilgrimmage to Penn State’s BJ Center.
In case you’re wondering – worth every ounce of effort. Ferrell hosted and did routines between acts (including Ron Burgandy interviewing two PSU football players). The stand-up came from Demetri Martin (hysterical), Nick Swardson (not my style but hysterical) and Zach Galifianakis (stole the show hands down). See two of my favorite bits below and please forgive me for the non-post. Until then, I’m in need of some serious sleep.
