"What would you do if I.. uh.. totally.. uh.. trotted to that door?" says Kyle Cease in one of his funnier and more recent comedy routines. Now, I love a good laugh just like anyone else, but I'm also very into stand-up comedy. I must say, though, that Kyle Cease really pulled ahead in the race. He isn't as well known as Dane Cook, but he's definitely a rising star. His talent extends further than just writing jokes and standing on a stage reciting them. He incorporates facial expressions, movement, and jokes on the spot. Depending on how the audience reacts, he can immediately come up with a quick and hilarious response. I can honestly say that when I'm feeling down, I know immediately who to go to. My friends and I recite Kyle Cease jokes again and again, and they never become old or overused. The best part about him is that his comedy relates to his audience on a personal level. Most of what he talks about is applicable to an average person's everyday life. At the same time, his jokes are incredibly unique and his humor is slightly different from standard humor which makes him that much better. Kyle Cease is a gem, but don't just take my word for it. Here's a clip of his "what would you do" joke, and don't say you weren't warned. Enjoy.
