This weekend I got a call from a friend that I hadn’t seen in over three years now. It’s a side effect of leaving my Boston roots. He was in San Francisco for one night and it was his birthday. Like the standup guy he is, he brought the gifts… some VIP passes to a comedy show where his friend was performing. Turns out that his friend, Jamie Kaler, is from the TBS show “My Boys.” Another actor from the show Michael Bunin was there as well.
Long story short, both were hilarious (I thought Kaler was better though) and I had more laughs than I had in a long time. It looks like I might be adding another television to my DVR.
You didn’t come here for a comedy review though, so let’s get you on to the links of posts I liked this week.
