The real title was actually "Fave Friday: Comedians" for dis one, but I just had to... (see bottom if you have no idea what I'm talking about).
In Wednesday's blog, some of you peeps started talking about old school joints like Gems or Holiday Mart/Daiei, etc., and it made me want to blog about it. Unfortunately, I beat myself to the punch. LOL! Shmall kine forgot that I already did um befo'! *blush*
Instead, let's do a somewhat newsworthy one. Comic legend Bill Cosby is in town for a couple of shows this weekend. Is he one of your faves? Let's list ours up. Hurr's mine:
* Jim Gaffigan - my all time favorite! Wifey bought us tickets when he came to town. HILARIOUS! He also seemed like a nice guy too when we met him to take photos after the show.
* Dave Chappelle - a close second! I would sooooo go watch him if he came here. I'm proud to say that I was his fan way before he blew up. 8)
* Ellen DeGeneres - smart, witty, and most importantly funny! Seems genuine too! Loves it!
* Chris Rock - edgy, funny, a little racist though. LOL! Love his comedy specials!
* Martin Lawrence - ditto the above. Wonder what he's up to these days. Mah-innnn!
* Dane Cook - used to be one of my fave plays on my iPod. Popularity seems to have majorly plummeted(?)...
* Brian Regan - old school comic that used to make me laugh on Letterman.
* Paula Poundstone - another old school comic. Actually dragged some friends to go watch her when she was doing a show at Pipeline. LOL!
A shout out to our local comics too:
* Rap Reiplinger - Auntie Marialani's Cooking Show is an all-time classic!
* Andy Bumatai - All In the `Ohana still makes me crack up!!!
* Paul Ogata - my fellow Asian brutha!
* Frank DeLima - da originato!
* Augie T - nu skool (kinda)!
* Bu La`ia - wea he stay?
* Mel Cabang - old school, but still funny.

On a side note, I'm scheduled to meet with the good folks at Tanioka's on Monday for a short interview for Part II of my up-coming "Poke Paradise" article (read Part I here). If you have any questions you'd like me to ask, lemme know! Also, if you have any suggestions on what poke you think I should try from there, let me know too!
Talk to me!
* Post your fave comic(s) below.
* Please help me congradumalate my sis for her good play at the Sony Open Pro-Am da odda day. She played with David Toms, and, from what she tells me, he's a real southern gentleman type. Gotta love those celebs/athletes who keeps it real! Goooo David! (Read her blog about it here.)
* Again, if ya gots any questions you'd like me to ask to the Taniokas, holla!
* Any American Idol chatter out dea? I really liked Jermaine Sellers (for his voice), Skiibo Ski (for his personality), and most importantly, General Larry Platt (for his lyrical geniusness!).
Shoots! Have a great weekend y'all! See ya on the flipside!
