I missed last night's AD, but I did get to see Patton Oswalt at Caroline's, which was awesome. He did a ton of new material, too; he apparently got engaged during Thanksgiving, which was fodder for a great bit about how being engaged sucks, and how unfair it is that women get a ring and men get nothing, and how he'd love to have an engagement sword, with a big gold dragonhead; also, how the term "engaged" is lawyerly and bland and how he'd prefer the term "superfucking". Eugene Mirman and Judah Freidlander (Molly Shannon's ex-husband in Wet Hot American Summer) opened, and both were hilarious as always. Now I'm a little hungover and completely broke; comedy clubs SUCK.

Also, I want to give a hearty congratulations to bottlroktt who just got a kick-ass job. I'm insanely jealous and anxious for any SNDA violations he can give.

I totally forgot to mention that we saw SPAMALOT on Friday. It's funny and silly and, ultimately, somewhat forgettable. It's telling that the most memorable song is "Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life", which isn't even in Holy Grail. However, the program is fucking HILARIOUS - just as with the movie, there's a false start with a full cast bio for "Dik Od Traiannenen Fol", a "story, in music and song, of Finland's transformation from a predominantly rural agricultural base to one of the most sophisticated industrial and entrepreneurial economies in the world".
