Don’t worry JFL, when all your gala comics and current headliners grow old (overdose) and die, take comfort in the fact that there is a fresh crop of talent ready to take their place. They were all on display Wednesday night in the New Faces of Comedy (Group 2).
Hosted by Dave Chappelle’s co-creator and co-host of THE CHAMPS, Neil Brennan, the show was as revealing as it was entertaining and likely had the mouths of the talent hungry executives in the crowd watering.
Remember these names – Byron Bowers, Gina Brillon. Chris Distefano, Dan Gill, Ian Karmel, Damien Lemon, Adam Newman, Mark Normand, Esther Povitsky, Andrew Schulz, and Dave Stone.
They all met the pressure and tore it up out there, but what I really liked, was what I saw coming out of New York… Chris Distefano and Andrew Schulz. After the show, I hit up google thinking someone should really snatch these two dudes up…only to discover that MTV already has.
Now admittedly, I don’t watch the Guy Code. Partly because up here in Canada we are not all that exposed to MTV2, but mostly because I’m not a 16 yr old fuckin’ douchebag… BUT, that being said, these two were both so good, we may just crack a red bull and get watching!
And Andrew Schulz, we’d go skydiving with you any day!
Montreal you still have two more chances to get a taste of the future of comedy.
