This week, I'm up on Rooftop Comedy as the guest editor. That means that last week, while you were stuffing your face full of innocent bird remains, I was watching a lot of standup comedy, looking for clips to help you laugh off the extra weight you put on by stuffing your face full of innocent bird remains.

All the clips I chose are on the site, but I wanted to offer a bit more as a decent web citizen. Below you'll find the names of all the comics I picked plus links to them in various places online (here's a Twitter list with 4 of the 7 comics). Enjoy, and thanks for supported (recorded) live comedy!

  1. Hannibal Buress: recently joined SNL as a writer & is one of my favorite comics. Myspace; Twitter; YouTube
  2. Alex Stone: first heard of him via Rooftop. Myspace
