Obsessed
April 30, 2008 7:11 AM   Subscribe

Comedian Julie Klausner (of "Hot Jewish Girls want to talk to you!!") has obsessions. So do her friends. As you do, she hosts a comedy night in New York where people can confess and explain (sometimes via powerpoint) the things that drive their compulsions.

Guest Janeane Garofalo is (rightly so) obsessed with HBO's Rome. Friend Jackie with Screech's sex tape. John Mulaney loves him a drunk Billy Joel joke.

And though discussed previously, it's Seth Rudetsky's astonishment of the crazy neck on dancer Donna McKechnie in the number "Turkey Lurkey Time" from the 1968 Burt Bacharach musical 'Promises, Promises' (with Jerry Orbach!) that takes the prize. And not just because Seth's footage is from a performance at the 1968 Tonys.

Yes, my first post is a bunch of YouTube links. Yes, you WILL love it anyways.

Whoa, I host a comedy night in New York? No wonder I hardly have time to read this pile of books!

Those women are liars. They aren't *really* obsessed with laser pointers. I heard no discussion of colours or output. No discussion of whose are best, and whose are cheapest.

When it comes to hardware, women just don't have the first clue about what real obsession is.

Hmm, hot jewish girls....
this comment doesn't betray that I'm drunk, does it?
Hey, leave me alone. It's Koninginnedag after all. You're supposed to be orange and drunk on Koninginnedag.

Even though the jokes were great that's way more information about the Dustin Diamond sex tape than I ever wanted to know (I know, my fault for watching - should have known). I almost feel bad for the guy because he has to be Dustin Diamond for the rest of his life and that wouldn't be fun for anybody. Then I remember he brags about gross things.

How would you like to be the woman internationally known for having a three-way with Screech at her bachelor party? Think her husband brings THAT up much when they fight?
