I usually saw him on random comedy things but always missed his name, and finally today I saw it.

Has anyone heard this guy?  He's got some really funny stuff.

"One time, I went to a public bathroom, and I noticed that 'Metallica Rocks' was written on the wall.  Under it was somethign that said 'Metallica sucks.'  Under that said 'You suck.' Under that said 'Screw You.'  And then I thought to myself, too many people carry pens with them when they go to take a crap."

But he's not overdone or unfunny...

What about the one where he's like, 'I want to take a vacation to the beach and bury metal objects that say, "Get a life" on them' hahah


He's coooool. I've known about him for a couple years now, but have only caught him on Comedy Central. I've seen the same show a few times. So that's all I know.
who likes movies anyway

He writes and performs on Conan now.  Also he does standup on there from time to time.

He was supposed to perform on Conan once, but Brad Pitt and Janet Jackson took up too much time.

I'm pretty sure they knew that would happen.  Having him as a 3rd guest was just safety

Some standup from a Comedy Central special?
