If you enjoy hilarious humans and frequent comedy spots in the Northeast, you probs know funny man—and occasional wearer of thick-framed glasses—Lamont Price. Price is cooler than you because he’s been named one of Comedy Central’s “Comedians to Watch” (which, FYI, is kind of a big deal). He also believes that if Alvin and the Chipmunks were real life commodities, social services and PETA would investigate the fuck out of their guardian’s home. We agree—that’s some fishy shit.
Tell us what you’ll be up to at the Magners Comedy Festival.
I’m hosting “Comedy is King,” which is produced by myself and Jeff Hammel at OBERON, and I’ll be performing in four shows during the festival.
That gives you plenty of time to partake in one of your favorite hobbies: picking up girls with low self-esteem.
[Laughs] Yeah, man. It’s certainly a superpower of mine.
How does an average gentleman meet a girl with low self-esteem?
Okay. You go out on a Friday night and if you see a girl crying before 11 o’clock—that’s too early for tears. It’s like, what could she possibly be crying about? She can’t be crying about something that happened between her and her family, because she’s wearing high heels and a little miniskirt. So it’s gotta be something trivial. Which means, she’s probably a little mentally messed up. So she might be the one.
Maybe there’s hope for low self-esteemers in 2012.
Yeah, everybody is all optimistic during the first two weeks of January.
And then sometime around the middle of February they realize, “Oh shit, my life still kind of sucks.”
People think that, like, the new year comes with a magical fairy that’s going to make everything that sucked last year just go away. New year, new me? Nah dude, you’re still going to be the same girl crying at eleven o’clock at night.
