Couldn't make it to Texas?
My friend Dan Andros offers up a fun review of last night's "Restoring Laughter" event in Dallas. For those of us who couldn't make it, he offers a recap of Stu's shenanigans, including some subtle jabs at Glenn:
Around 2,000 people filled the seats at High Point Church in Arlington Texas last night for Restoring Laughter and fans got what they came for: great laughs without the x-rated material most comedians employ today. The event was MC’d by Stu Burguiere, co-host and executive producer of The Glenn Beck Radio Program and featured comedians Ron McGeehee, Kerri Pomarolli & Jeff Allen.
In his debut stand up role, Stu left a slew of targets in his wake, with MSNBC taking the brunt in the early going. Stu mocked their ‘Inside the Obama White House’ coverage: “It’s not clear if that was a new show or if they have just moved their studios inside the Obama White House. They’ve been dating so long it’s about time they move in together” he said to cheers of approval.
Stu also marveled at the media’s fear of Mormonism, not understanding what they could possibly be afraid of: “What’s so threatening about a Mormon? What are they going to do? Run over you with their bicycles? Are they going to drown you in root beer? A jello salad attack? The Mormon version of the crusades is an overly aggressive hug.”
And of course, Glenn Beck would not be spared. Stu argued it was ‘ridiculous’ for people to label Glenn gloom & doom because ‘you should see the bright and cheery color scheme in his death bunker’.
