This week at the Laugh Factory, great sets from Joey Medina, Rick Overton, Mario Joyner, and Jeremy Hotz. Brooklyn native Joey Medina says rich people and poor people brag differently, and talks to Dom about his former life as a boxer. Rick Overton explains why hippies paved the way and who's changing the face of comedy. Mario Joyner says The Home Depot is a do-it-yourself death trap. Jeremy Hotz says he's so lonely that both his condoms and his catsup are going bad. Joey Medina
