Watching Comedy Evolve

Friday night, my husband and I managed to snag tickets for 50% at the Ice House so we could see Christopher Titus, my favorite comedian.  I was first exposed to him on the show Titus which aired on Fox during my sophomore year of college, and I fell in love.  Always a fan of dark comedy, I get very excited to watch a special on Comedy Central or every once in a while see him in an intimate setting in my own neck of the woods.

The show was funny for the most part, but it was clearly a work in progress.  He did recycle some jokes from the “Love is Evol” Act.  It was hard to say what his theme really was… I’m not sure if it was trophies or revolution (and he really should stay away from the latter because he sounded like a tea-partier(bagger) when he went off on that).  I was only visibly annoyed in one part where he exhibited (I think) an ignorant to the point of unfunny take on anti-depressants, but there were definitely moments when I was laughing so hard my sides were hurting.  So, I’ll take it as a win.

It was while walking away slightly tipsy (because the Ice House makes you pay a buttload in drinks on top of their tickets), I realized that 1) I really admire Christopher Titus for working on his craft so rigorously that his final product is truly something to be admired and 2) I don’t think I’ve ever seen the beginning workings of a comedy act like this before.  I’m pretty critical at comics (oh, and his opening act SUCKED), but I don’t think I ever really walked away from an act going, that was a good START and I’m excited to see what will come of it.

Now, I hope I didn’t just curse him to an unsuccessful act!
