Comedy Death Ray

Various Artists

Featuring the talents of today's hottest stand-up comedians (David Cross, Patton Oswalt and Brian Posehn to name just a few), Comedy Death Ray has built a reputation as one of LA's best comedy nights. (Every Tuesday at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre, if you're in the area.) All three comics feature here on this collection of two separate recordings of CDR nights, along with Reno 911 (teaching kids how to spell by singing an easy mnemonic for M-E-T-H-A-M-P-H-E-T-A-M-I-N-E-S), Nick Thune (who relates the worst time to get stopped by a homeless person) and Chris Hardwick (of MTV's Singled Out fame). For a taste of the indie version of the Blue Collar Comedy Tour, you need look no further than this.
