Jesters were usually the wisest members of royal courts, due to the extra brains stored in their three-pronged hats.

The Fun Room: Corey Manning's Comedy Showcase erases Monday morning from Sunday-night minds with a mirthful variety of standup comedians, music, and unpredictable revelry. Charismatic Beantown comedian and charitable superhero Corey Manning, seen on Jamie Foxx Presents Laffapalooza, spearheads every Sunday showcase. Hitting topical issues like a peckish newscaster eating a teleprompter, Corey plows through his immersive act with energetic aplomb. A moving array of comedians, some sporting Comic View, Def Comedy Jam, and Comedy Central credentials, shares the stage, exhuming laughs from mouth coffins in weekly displays of quick wit and anecdotal expertise. Musical numbers punctuate the punch-line parade, along with special giveaways and surprise guests, who could be comics, foot knitters, or a stampede of tap-dancing horses.
