Forget idealistic imagery of bright-eyed go-getters building a better tomorrow. Comedian Joe Fontenot is the true modern man. Comfortably clad in a backward baseball cap and whatever was lying on his floor, Fontenot's days are largely spent watching porn, scratching himself and waxing philosophical on the experience.
"It's not my lack of training that's keeping me from getting the job I want, it's the mandatory drug test and my total lack of motivation," he said in response to the endless stream of ITT Tech commercials that disrupt his scholarly research on The Price is Right.
In short: Fontenot is the douchebag's douchebag. Like it or not, you can probably identify.
He'll be headlining at Liquid Laughs this week. The shows start at 8 p.m. and runs Thursday, Jan. 17, through Sunday, Jan. 20, with late shows at 10:15 p.m. on Friday and Saturday nights. Tickets are $10 at the door.
Opening the show will be Seattle comic Owen Straw, who recently had to give up his "molester van" because of gas prices. It's a hard-knock life, Mr. Straw.
