Ted Leo guest hosted the Hot Tub comedy night at Littlefield on Monday, which he said was his first time doing anything like that (at least more than the witty between set banter at his shows). And he killed it! It’s hard to go wrong with a bit comparing farts to H.P. Lovecraft titles.
Ted also had this — is it a dig? A snark? I’m not sure what to call it, except maybe accurate — jem: when introducing comedian Jamie Lee, he said, “She was a finalist on Last Comic Standing … which you don’t know about, because you’re hipster trash like me and you don’t own a TV.” And it’s true.
So please enjoy a portion of his cover of the Brenton Wood Song “Gimme Little Sign” from Hot Tub.
And please enjoy this gratuitous picture of Ted with a Brokelyn shirt, which he said he was wearing all day but had to take it off before the show so he could “shower” or whatever. At which point we ripped the shirt away from him and told him never to besmirch our brand with “cleanliness” again. Kidding!
