For a few minutes at the Brian Regan performance on Saturday I felt like a total lame-o. This happened when I realized that everybody there knew all of Brian Regan's jokes because they had his CD. Just like me. I can probably recite several of his funnier bits, and so could they.
To make matters worse, he comes back for an encore (a comedian doing an encore? Hey, its Brian Regan, I'm not going to complain!) and everybody uses that as an excuse to call out their favorite bit in hopes that he'll do it. He makes fun of this of course, but without fail they're bits from the CD. In the end, he was hilarious. I had tears streaming down my cheeks. The warm-up act was really funny too. Of course, I can't remember his name now, and I can't be bothered to look it up.
