Start your day with laugh. Today's lineup includes:
It only took two years of relentless pursuit of stage time for Gary Gulman to finally feel comfortable enough to give up his cushy accounting job and become a full time standup comedian. Of course he did have to take on a part time job at Starbucks so he could pay the bills, but it was still a pretty big step. An even larger step in his career came recently when he finished third on NBC’s comedy reality show "Last Comic Standing." First, Gulman won his way onto the show by beating out hundreds of other comedians from across the country, then he eliminated seven other houseguests to secure a spot on the final episode and go head to head with Alonzo Bodden and the eventual winner, John Heffron. Gulman has appeared on both "The Tonight Show" and "Late Night with David Letterman," he played football for Boston College, and is a huge fan of Oreo cookies.
Right & Raunch
Dwight Slade isn't just a comedian, he's also the voice of the little man, sticking it to 'the man' and scoring a little payback for all of life's daily humiliations. Slade began his comedy crusade in Portland, working with the legendary Bill Hicks, but has since made a name for himself headlining comedy clubs, hosting his own radio show and releasing a number of comedy albums, including his new double DVD, Right & Raunch.
FACTOID - Dwight Slade traveled from show to show with his family in an RV for four years when he began his comedy career.
