Music is a big part of making Workaholics, and from time to time the guys like to kick back with a song to celebrate a joke well done.
When a particularly well told laugher, slam, one-liner or pun is delivered, Paul Simon’s “Call Me Al” is one of the songs most often cued up to play as the writers exchange hearty handshakes, hugs, and congratulations. It’s a heartwarming few minutes.
Doubt it’s power? Invite some friends over, sit in a room for a few hours discussing ideas, and then play this song after an A+ of an offering. If you’re not out of your seat with a smile on your face, you clearly are suffering a deep depression from which there is no return. Or you need to fire the friends you brought over first, for some new, fresher-voiced friends. We’re sorry for your situation and wish you the best as you struggle to right the ship in either instance.
In researching this post, I learned Paul Simon decided to stick with the music thing after this song was released (from the album Graceland), and has had some mild success.
The other guy in the video is apparently still performing, too. I bet his name is Al, hence the inclusion. We here at Workaholics want to wish them the best in their struggles to make it in this crazy world. Maybe one day we’ll make a song that they play to celebrate their good deeds.
If so, you can call us Workaholics.
I had a friend recently send me this amazing Youtube clip.
Aside from it just being a bit confusing without any context it’s simply amazing to realize that “bullet time fanservice” is now a real thing o.0
I’ve posted the gif of the chick’s super-breasts dodging the bullet before, but this whole clip is gold.

Anonymous asked: <p>I’ve performed at The Comedy Store a lot. In double digits easy. While some shows are better than others I don’t think I’ve ever had a bad show there.</p>
<p>I’d like to know how one becomes a paid regular. To what degree do you have to kill? Who has to see you kill? How many times do they have to see it? etc.</p>
<p>This isn’t a bitter entitlted comic asking. </p>

This is a GREAT fucking question. At long last you can have the riddle of the Sphynx, solved and posted online for everyone to see and refer to.
The answer to this is more simple than you’d think. Though we love our bringer shows and think its great that people get to see their friends perform, The Comedy Store prefers to work the traditional method of finding talent through the Open Mics we hold on Sundays and Mondays.
The major difference between performing at an Open Mic versus a bringer show is the sheer harsh brutality of an audience who has its own agenda, and that agenda is NOT watching you succeed.
That same reason is why The Comedy Store is one of the most difficult rooms in the world and why even top name talent can bomb severely in the Original Room.
It’s one thing performing at a venue full of fans, students, sycophants and friends, its a whole other beast to perform in front of industry, peers, tourists from Australia, Enrique from Covina, and an Armenian bachelorette party.
To be able to separate the best from the best, you need to be able to bring heat to the open mic and carry that heat consistently as our talent coordinator advances you into a friends and family spot, the belly room, and finally a showcase for a paid regular spot.
While the legendary Mitzi Shore was originally the sole decider on who achieved Paid Regular status (She famously passed on Jerry Seinfeld), our system is a lot more democratized than before.
Tommy Morris our awesomely eccentric talent coordinator keeps tabs on your progress and will showcase you to management and the Shore family when the time comes. He takes the input from everyone, including your peers and then makes the decision for that exalted spot of Comedy Store Paid regular. Then in July we add your name to the wall alongside George Carlin, Bill Hicks, Sam Kinison, Dave Chapelle, Marc Maron and the countless other legends who have graced out stage. Its a long process, but we keep it tight to insure our long tradition of producing legends.
Hope that helps, and we’ll see you on Sunday and Monday!
