One-upsmanship abounds for two local comics releasing albums


Performing Arts

Joshua Boydston
With a comedy market as small as Oklahoma City, you can bet there will be a little friendly competition between the area’s standup comics. Two of them — BradChad Porter and Leah Kayajanian — are in the midst of their very own.

Paul

As a space-alien comedy, ‘Paul’ is hardly out-of-this-world, but occasionally soars.

Meet Me in Las Vegas

Do you like musicals?


Comedy

Barney's Version

Enjoyable, but nothing spectacular


Comedy

Rod Lott
At this year’s Golden Globes, when Paul Giamatti won Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture — Musical or Comedy for “Barney’s Version,” you, too, may have asked, “What the hell is ‘Barney’s Version’?”

Hold On!

Like the Beatles, only with lesser music and more entertaining filmmaking


Comedy

Rod Lott
From 1966, "Hold On!" is basically Herman's Hermits' version of The Beatles' "A Hard Day's Night," but with music that's not as good, yet is more fun to watch. Yeah, I said it.

Comedy

Rod Lott
Imagine if the storylines of Robert Altman’s “Short Cuts” weren’t so intertwined, and then separated and structured in a comic-book framework akin to George A. Romero’s “Creepshow.”

Ben Bailey: Road Rage ... and Accidental Ornithology

Just pull over here, please


Comedy

Rod Lott

If you know Ben Bailey at all, you know he’s the host of “Cash Cab,” perhaps cable’s most unique game show, in that it takes place in a moving taxi, with Bailey at the wheel.
