big night at the chuckle hut

The Comedy Zone was the scene of an all-star show last night. The headline-caliber comedians were in town for a charity golf tournament. While all the comics were good, my wife and I especially enjoyed the college tuition analysis of Tom Parks, the lip sync routines of Scotty K. and the wordplay of Tim Northern. My wife identified a little too closely with Leanne Morgan's complaints about her husband. The show was running a trifle long. Gary Valentine was onstage when we, uh, had to go. He's the same Gary Valentine from the Thanksgiving parade coverage on CBS.

Parking for the event was at a nearby Holiday Inn with limousine shuttles to the comedy club. On our way back to the hotel, Scotty K. rode in the car with us. We complimented him on his boy band moves and he made us laugh even more by showing us which moves came from which bands. When I was able to help him come up with names like
New Kids on the Block and Ashley Parker Angel, Scotty told my wife that I must spend time watching MTV while she's asleep. I confessed that she didn't need to be asleep.

Gary Valentine is Kevin James' brother, correct?

Valentine had a funny subplot on last night's episode of The King of Queens. He and Patton Oswalt were fighting over the big bedroom in the apartment they share. Neither would leave. They then realized they dug sharing a room! Funny episode.

I believe their father recently died. There was an "In Memory Of..." message at the end of the episode.
