Last month we were live at the Bumbershoot Music & Arts Festival in Seattle. Our shows included two standup performances, from two of our favorite standup comics - Tig Notaro and Greg Behrendt (above).

Tig Notaro can be seen as Officer Tig on Comedy Central's The Sarah Silverman Program, and of course touring the nation as a standup comic. She performed standup for us in Seattle.

Greg Behrendt is a veteran standup, who found unexpected success a few years ago with the relationship book "He's Just Not That Into You." The success of the book, and popularity of his appearances on Oprah Winfrey's show netted him a daytime talk show. Greg performed, then we talked with him about fitting his persona into the odd format of daytime talk.

Guests Louis CK, Florian Keller, and Neil Hamburger. Louis CK is one of America's best standup comics -- we talk with him about his new kind of old-fashioned sitcom.
