In another life, if I were braver, I think I might have liked to try being a stand-up comic. Not in this life, though: I'm not nearly smart or sharp enough to do it. But that doesn't mean I can't admire the art of stand-up from afar. I've long been a passionate fan of Comedian, and I also really liked Sleepwalk With Me, which opens on Friday. For Gawker, I wrote about why I'm so obsessed with stand-up comedy. You can read the piece here.
