It’s a little late for a top ten of 2011 list, but this is one that nobody will even care about, so who cares!
Like most people who do stand up comedy, I perform a lot. I tried counting on my calendar how many times I performed last year; it said 168, though that number doesn’t include open mics or last minute shows. Granted, I’m no Sammy Obeid (who performed for 365 days in a row, probably somewhere around 1000 sets. I don’t know the exact number but he’ll tell you, if you give him some stage time). But still, I spent more nights onstage than off, and it’s easy to forget individual shows. But I had such a fun year, and I’m so grateful for all the opportunities I had, that I felt compelled to publicly and self-indulgently count my blessings here and review some of my favorite shows of the year. My top ten comedy moments of 2011, after the jump.
