Went to Whiplash at the UCB theatre tonight with some friends. Hey, gotta' do it. I've done it a few times since I've lived in NYC and tonight was definitely non-stop funny shit. Stand up is insane and I could never imagine doing it but when it's on-it's on and it's amazing. I have a lot of respect for people that can not just do it, but keep the audience's attention. Not an easy feat! Comedy is a pretty big thing right now- just look at the endless stand up specials on Netflix. One of my favorites of the evening was Sheng Wang. He kind of reminds me of Mitch Hedberg- super laid back and stonery with it. Of course it turns out he's born in Taiwan and grew up in Texas. Not trying to be like "WHAT UP TAIWANNNN" but "WHAT UP TAIWANNNNESE BORN AMERICAN COMEDIANS!??!!!" There's like one of you? Truth be told, I'm totally going to see him again tomorrow night for the special price of $5.50 at the Carolines off Broadway. That Instagram Follower Discount?!? What up?? Stoked.

I went to college with Sheng. Used to watch him do comedy shows over ten years ago.
