LCS - The Final Three Visit New York
okay, so it wasn't the final three. However, I got the opportunity to see Corey Kahanney, Dave Mordal and Rich Vos last night at Caroline's in NYC.
Before I begin the review, let's all give kudos to Al, my beloved husband, for working OT all week, including yesterday, dragging his ass to the show and working again today. All in the name of reality tv.
Not to mention I made him take a picture of me in front of Caroline's. What a keeper.
We got there the suggested 1 hour prior to the show (read: come early, spend way too much on drinks and food that don't count toward the 2 drink minimum). Our reservation number was 4 (read: 4th person to call for reservations), but were numbered "67" upon our arrival. I was disappointed it wasn't 69. PEOPLE. Stop. That's the year I was born. I digress.
We sat at this tiny table and this gentleman with some wild hair came to take our drink minimum, er order. While waiting, I see Vos come out and spec out the crowd, smoking his butts. Then Mordal pokes his head out. Nobody seems to care but me.
I will mention I really STINK at remembering jokes and bits. You'll have to trust me on that.
The show starts with Corey. She came out and the crowd was excited. I noted to the lady next to me that I feel like I know her. She says "I do". She works with Corey's husband and was at their wedding. So basically I know someone who knows Corey. How cool am I. Her set consisted of some weight watcher jokes, some yoga, some daughter jokes, some Dat references (a great hide and seek reference, to which only us loyal LCS watchers were roaring). My night was complete when she mentioned Elizabeth the slut. Basically she had the crowd laughing and was entertaining. She asked a girl in the front how old she was - she said 17. She told her to beware of Vos. She was in trouble.
She introduced "the funniest man in the house" (her words), Dave Mordal. As soon as I see him, I laugh. He just has that effect on me. He comes out and says something to the effect of "it's only a TV show" with that dry, puzzled, what are you so obsessed with, look on his face. As I mentioned, I can't remember bits. So, he did his set and it was hilarious. He had a porn shop bit, which included glow in the dark condoms. His delivery is just a riot. He did mention the house a bit. He mentioned the Hide and Seek and that Ralphie sat and didn't even attempt to move, which made it funnier. Ralphie just reading his novel (he mentioned Crichton, however Ralphie says in another thread it was Grisham). Still hilarious. He was discussing clothing and mentioned the fact that he irons less than someone he knows. At this point, my night really is complete. All I need is for Vos to say "I STINK".
He continues on making me laugh when he just stops. He looks around and says "well, that's all I have -any questions?" LOL. Someone yells "who wins" to which Dave says - nobody wins - it's a live ending. Hmm? Did I know that? I'm not sure.
Then of course, much to the chagrin of my husband, say "how was the tub with Vos?". He started laughing and said it was something he only did once. A day. He's a clean guy. LOL!
He was really funny, had the crowd laughing the whole time. But since my memory stinks, you'll have to trust me.
The comes Vos. If you follow my posts here (which I'm thinking nobody does, and I'd be worried if they did), you would know I flip flop on my views of Vos. Having heard him numerous times on the now defunct Opie and Anthony radio show, I always found him entertaining. But in the house, I'm not so sure. This changed everything. Ladies and Gentlemen, Vos kicked ass. He was fantastic. He came out full charge. He is so politically un-correct, it was refreshing! He says things only you think of saying, but would never. He did some women bits, some NJ bits (he mentioned we're on high alert again. He shrugged his shoulders and said so what - I'm from Plainfield, NJ - it's high alert every F'ing night - the jersey people laughed. A lot. That scares me. Thank God I live in NY ). But basically, he was on fire. He had the crowd roaring. He did have a bit of a heckler who decided to stand up and tell his own joke (My wife and I are into S&M - she sleeps and I masterbate). Vos laughs, briefly, and then says "if anyone's here tomorrow, you'll hear me telling that joke." It was amusing. My view is definitely different now. His stand up kicks butt - regardless of his "don" stature in the house. He mentions that he'll be selling his CD's on the way out. Buy one. $10 bucks. Help him out. And he does at some point, mention "STINK". I laugh. My husband gives me the blank stare.
Well, after my 2 drink minium plus one, I head to the bathroom hoping he won't heckle me, as his set isn't over, but I just couldn't wait anymore. However, I didn't get 2 feet before Mordal comes back and says he'll be selling Vos' cd's for $8 bucks outside. Crowd Laughs. Show over. (not to mention I beat the chicks to the bathroom - a bonus in my eyes)
We leave the show - there's Vos, like a street peddler with a handful of CD's. He wasn't kidding. So I shelled out the $10 and told him it was a great set. He took a pic with me (he was distracted by the heckler dude, but he did it anyway).
So, in a nutshell:
Cover charge and drink minimum: $126 with tip
Vos CD: $10.00 (couldn't find Mordal for the $8 version)
Trip to Hooters for Wings to appease tired husband: $40
Seeing Corey, Dave and Vos live: Priceless
Here's the pictures

Very Well done Marybeth! You made me feel like I was there, only I still have $ in the bank.
Loaded God Complex
WOW! Thanks, MB. So, a LIVE ending, eh?? That, if true, means no one knows who the winner is yet!
Combat Missions Fan
Thanks, MB. The pics are cool, too. And kudos to Al.
thank you mary beth. That's an awesome report *and* with great pictures no less!
I feel like I was there. But cheaper.
(I'd be shouting out - and Hubby Bumpkin would be giving *me* blank stares too ... )
It ain't easy being green
marybeth, thank you SO much for recapping your trip to see those three! I am so glad that you enjoyed the show! I hope I get the chance to see some of these comics live one day. Of course, my wife won't let me go to Hooters afterwards, but I'll live.
Yoffy lifts a finger...
Great round-up of the evenings events marybeth.
Thanks so much
Thanks for the recap Marybeth I'm so jealous right now I was going to go to NY to see them, but I couldn't get off of work at all this weekend. Great recap you almost made me feel like I was there, I said almost, because a recap doesn't even compare with getting to see Dave in person.

Glad you guys liked the recap. It was a fun night.
But damn that 30 minute editing feature. I butchered the spelling of Cory's name. Oh well!
