So, here's one of the cool things about living in L.A.: I went to the Upright Citizens' Brigade Theatre over on Franklin and for three dollars I saw a sketch/variety show called Human Giant that had some cool sketch stuff, a dude named Reggie Watts that did sort of a Drum Machine thing (although nowhere near as well developed), some other comics, AND a ten minute set by Patton Oswalt. All in a dinky little 99 seat theater.
And it turns out that the woman sitting next to me was also a stand-up and had a show on Oxygen last year.
That's one of the bizarre effects of living in a town built on TV and films.
