DJ Sabzi’s Bucket of Yuks

posted by on January 29 at 13:33 PM


Last night brought the “Week of Fun“‘s Celebrity Open Mic Night to the Comedy Underground. Among the alleged celebrities taking the stage to deliver five minutes of comedy were Stranger writers Cienna Madrid (who burned the place up with her legendary junior-high erotica), Charles Mudede (who almost killed me with his riffing on punching pregnant women), and yours truly, who read some old shit from Best Gay Erotica 1997.

Among the actual celebrities showing up to make with the funny: DJ Sabzi, aka Saba, the local hiphop hero who makes the beats for both Common Market and Blue Scholars, and who was impressively hilarious. I was about to write, “I wish I could remember some of his jokes,” but recounted jokes suck, so I’m glad I can’t remember any actual lines, just general subject matter, which included honkies, non-honkies, and the arbitrary invention of racial stereotypes. He also did funny stuff with his arms and legs.

Thank you, DJ Sabzi, for teaching a whole bunch of people crowded into a lightly smelly underground room that hiphop artistes who adhere to the Baha’i faith can also be funny as shit. (Thanks as well to the night’s real-life comedians, the majority of whom were damn funny, including but not limited to Jeff Dye, Hari Kondabolu, and that guy who read letters to Seattle celebrities who failed to show up.)

I'm so bummed I missed this. Are there any other Hip Hop Ha-Ha nights happening any time soon?

Who knew this was such a fertile subject for comedy? I'm curious to know what sort of humor can come from this unpromising premise.

Awwww, I suck at internets. At least the second one is spelled correctly.

Charles, you should watch French film, 'I STAND ALONE', for controversial preggers-punch scene. Deb at #2, you should never *EVER* watch French film I STAND ALONE. Don't accidently rent it. You'll be upset for years.
