I LOVE stand-up comedy. Seriously, ridiculously love it. When I was a kid, Saturday nights were the best because after I got home or while I was staying up late at a sleep-over, we would watch comedy specials on HBO or Comic Strip Live (or course this was watched in conjunction with Headbanger’s Ball. I’m eclectic). And I still love it. In fact, stand-up comedy is one of the few interests that I have in common with my husband.
I’ve been fortunate to see some of the greatest comics of all time including George Carlin and Bill Cosby. But one comic I haven’t seen that I am absolutely longing to is Louis CK. He’s freaking hilarious (and completely inventive? Remember what he did a few months ago by selling his stand-up special on his website rather than traditional methods? Remember how much money he made? Remember what he did with it? Yeah. My respect for him increased exponentially after that). I cannot watch him without laughing. Since this is a money site, I figured I’d share one of his funniest bits about being broke. I’m sure that most of us can relate to this (warning: language is completely, utterly, and totally not appropriate for work):
So that’s probably my favorite comedy set about money, next to the SNL skit with Steve Martin and Chris Parnell’s “Don’t Buy Stuff You Can’t Afford”. What’s yours?
