Though a typical comedian leaves a glass of water on a stool for sipping throughout the set, the best comedians stay hydrated by catching spit-takes or the splashes of clumsy waitresses.

Enigmatic comedian, E! celebrity correspondent and Chelsea Lately regular Michael Yo fires up a fresh batch of mischievous zingers for Hot Mess Comedy, a jubilee of tawdry humor and base instincts. With a keen wit and the ability to make cows chuckle until they spew milk out of their noses, Yo fills his bottomless joke cache with material based on his Hollywood expertise and dating inexpertness. Other haughty and naughty high-octane comics include Movin 92.5 morning radio host DJ Jubal Flagg who floors his funny-wagon through material about excessive libations, and viral-video instigator Eric Schwartz, otherwise known as Smooth-E. Rounding out the Hot Mess roster, CNN’s Showbiz Tonight commentator and self-described cougar-in-training Jodi Miller (http://www.jodimillercomedy.com) roasts, skewers, and devours the opposite sex as she transforms the walk of shame into a stride of pride.
Parlor Live Comedy Club
Owner Steve Olson added Parlor Live to the Parlor complex in 2008 as a way to bring big city-caliber evening entertainment to suburban Bellevue. National comedians take the stage in a wide, shallow room with seating that wraps around three sides of the action as colored shapes produced by a sophisticated lighting system dance across the walls. A globally inspired menu introduces the agonizing dilemma of whether to laugh, fill one’s mouth, or mold little edible hearts to toss toward the performer with shareable dishes that include garlic-gorgonzola waffle fries and coconut prawns. The drink menu, too, aims to surprise with complex cocktails that range from a classic old-fashioned to a sparkling rosemary potion with Aperol.
