This week at the Laugh Factory, Brother Woods embarrasses Dom by giving a few too many props. Then, Saturday Night Live's Finesse Mitchell explains why partying in L.A. is different than in New York, why mannequins are turning him on, and why black teenage moms shouldn't be allowed to name their children. Greek-Canadian Angelo Tsarouchas explains the real reason fat people are fat and the meaning behind his Greek name, and describes his former life as a travel agent. Finally, international comedy star Russell Peters says it's time to stop feeling sorry for the deaf, and he and Dom compare notes on the politics of stealing other people's material and coming up with new material. Finesse Mitchell:
Finesse was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, and graduated from the University of Miami. Finesse got his first television exposure on B.E.T.'s Comic View in 1999. Shortly after, he moved to Los Angeles. He then appeared on NBC's Late Friday, The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn, and Comedy Central's Premium Blend. He was a cast member on Saturday Night Live from 2003 to 2006. Angelo Tsarouchas:
A Greek-Canadian, Angelo is an internationally known stand-up comic. He was showcased at the UK Paramount Comedy Festival, South African Comedy Festival, and Montreal's Just for Laughs Festival. He wrote and has performed a one-man show, It's All Greek to Me, which has received rave reviews. Russell Peters:
Russell is already a comedy superstar in much of the world. A recent one-off appearance at London's Shaw Theatre sold out in 48 hours, and when his first shows in Sydney and Melbourne were announced in May 2006, 10,000 tickets were gone in less than two days, with zero advertising. In April 2005, Russell was the first South Asian to headline at and sell out the Apollo Theater in New York City.
