Perhaps my favorite new service is a local FM radio station that only plays bits from stand-up comics. Before I tune to NPR or music, I start with comedy. By listening to this station, I've expanded my comedian horizons greatly. New favorites include Jimmy Carr, Maria Bamford, and Ron White (among many others).

On Sunday I went to famous Red Rocks Amphitheater for the OddBall Comedy festival. The show packs in numerous top-notch comics each doing a 20 minute act. The line-up was fantastic and any one of them would be a headliner at a comedy club. Some of the comics played it safe and used their proven jokes. Others were more risky and improvised their allocated time.

Whitney Cummings, Chris Hardwick, Hannibal Burress, Dmitry Martin, Mark Maron, Sarah Silverman, Aziz Ansari, and Louis C.K. as the closer. I was particularly starstruck to see Louis C.K. perform. His self-degradation and storytelling are perfectly tuned.

It was strange to see comedy in an outdoor amphitheater. I’m used to stand-up being more up-close and personal. Still, it was incredibly fun. the line-up varies at each stop so I recommend the show if it comes to your area.
