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 Michael Quu, who floors his funny-wagon through minefields of frank matters, and 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.
