My Standup Comedy This Week >

(1) : Apropos: Leonard and I have been watching a few episodes of The Dick Van Dyke Show every day. Battlestar Galactica, The Babysitters Club, and The Dick Van Dyke Show all suit me partly because they focus on labor. Robert Petrie takes substantial pride in doing his job well. I am now imagining Admiral Adama from BSG as Rob's boss Mel Cooley. Sure.

Yesterday, we watched "Big Max Calvada," in which a mob boss gets Rob and his comedy-writing colleagues to write an act for the mobster's untalented nephew. My PICC performance approaches in less than two weeks. Perhaps it didn't help my nerves to watch the nephew's act bombing.

Back to work, laboring over jokes about Facebook.

I like stuff that focuses on labor, too! I hate stuff with organized crime and/or corrupt cops, though.

I think this is why I like Criminal Minds partly; the FBI team takes their work seriously and are very concerned about doing their jobs well, and they're fighting crime in a way that is clearly okay--I think we can all agree that serial killers are bad, yes?
