One of my (and Ish's) favorite comics here in the Bay Area is competing in Comedy Central's Open Mic Fight. This is kind of a HUGE deal.
I am asking you to vote for him.
And you're all like, why? Who? What now?
Basically, Mo Mandel is a young comedian who deserves recognition for several reasons:
- His material is actually good.
- And original.
- And well written.
- Mo works incredibly hard.
- Mo is a NICE guy. I have met dozens and dozens of comedians, many of whom just...aren't. So many are mean-spirited, or bitter, or have enormous egos, or any combination thereof. Mo is a good egg. (And you know, cute, too.)
You can say you knew him when. :)
