Not As Funny As Ashcroft, But...

by PG

From the law school email list:

The Funniest Lawyer in New York stand up comedy contest is looking for
funny first-timers in the legal field - students, faculty, administrators - who'd like the opportunity to try their hand at comedy. Spots are available at Stand Up New York, an comedy club on the Upper West Side on November 28th and Friday, December 2nd. Information.
I can't tell whether this begs more for a stupid joke about Michael Dorf -- of "Quit the Joke, Dorf" Law Revue fame -- or one about the good that could be done by a well-placed explosive at this comedy club. The general public is none too fond of attorneys, and ones who think they are comedians as well may be too much for normally mild-mannered New Yorkers to handle.

And yes, I'm probably just bitter that I'm the least funny person on this blog.

While you are concerned that you may be "the least funny person on this blog", are you also concerned with your PG rating? Just maybe "X" could mark the spot.

As it happens, I am an attorney who is both a comedian (14 years professional) and comedy club owner. Whether it is a vocal defense attorney or a heckler, I am used to having to think on my feet to present my material.

There are a bunch of us out there, but I do have to say that some of the most difficult audiences are those made up my brothers and sisters in the legal community.
