DAVE WAITE/Hotdoggin' It: Oh, those crazy alt.comics; they look like the guy that never gets laid---but they are stars and hilarity ensues after the hilarity ensued. A heartland guy recorded live in Madison, WI, not exactly a heartland bastion of conservatism, Waite is a fine, flyover version of a hipster. Devilishly funny stuff that anyone that doesn't live near an ocean will split their sides with. Well done.

MATT FUGATE/Believement: A modern version of the everyman, everyday guy that you could draw a line from Jackie Vernon and Myron Cohen to now, Fugate is pretty family friendly in his jokes and stories. A comfortable kind of comic, Fugate is one of those cats that's not angry and doesn't have to go blue, he just taps into a vein of easy going funny that he has mastered well. It's almost like he's a network friendly kind of guy whose timing and attitude could transfer to a sitcom quite nicely. He just wouldn't get to say ‘dick' as much. Check it out.

JAKE FLORES/Humours: The recording debut of an alt.comic that sounds like Steven Wright on speed, Flores uses his Brooklyn by way of Austin energy to full advantage. A roller coaster ride of wild laughs, Flores runs with it and doesn't look back. A high rolling high time, this is a sure bet to get the laughs started any place and any time. Hot stuff.
