Brian Regan is my new favorite comedian. check out here Family-friendly, but a sharp witted stand-up who says he's just trying to get through life without looking like an idiot. His bits are full of memorable phrases that will become family code. Between Brian Regan and Napolean Dynamite, my family now has our own indigenous language.
My favorite bit is about fishing shows on TV. Its especially hysterical because my friend and neighbor Dave is the host of Fishing Across America. see here. Dave won the Golden Moose in 2003 for Fan's Favorite Fishing Show, so you know I'm a big shot for knowing a guy like him. Dave also built our house.
Regan says that it's pretty bad when someone is too lazy to fish and has to watch fishing on TV. But worse, is when you tape fishing shows to watch again. I tape Dave's show every week. And it's not because I'm lazy. Actually, don't tell anyone this, but I catch pretty much all of Dave's fish for him off camera, then hand him the rod. That's the way it works on TV. They always get these good lookin' guys, smiling and loving the camera, while some working stiff is in the back of the boat sweating like a sumo wrestler who has to walk a hundred yards to the all you can eat buffet.
What was I saying? Oh yeah. Buy Brian Regan's CD. You need the laughs. It will do your heart good (Prov. 17:22)
