Video Saturday #6 – Stand Up!

Once again it’s Saturday. Time flies like an arrow, as they say (and fruit flies like a banana). Today the topic of my choice is stand up comedy. I like quite some stand up comedy and would like to share with you. Enjoy and please *do* send me any other suggestions you have in terms of stand up comedy.
