5.3-6: Steve Treviño

“Sometimes I wish my wife would get hit by a truck. That’s a horrible thing to say, I know. It’s horrible. Sometimes I want out. Not all the time. Most of the time it’s good. But sometimes I want out. But I don’t get out. You know why I don’t get out? Cuz there’s another man waiting to sleep with her. And I could not imagine another man sleeping with my wife. So I stay in. I f**king stay in. So if my wife gets hit by a truck, problem solved.” — Steve Treviño on Relatable

5.10-12: Bryan Callen 

“Martin Luther King never told a fart joke. I guarantee it. Nobody was laughing during his speeches. Maybe racists were, but that’s it.” — Bryan Callen at the DC Improv Comedy Club

5.11-13: Adam Ray 

“You guys watch the Oscars? I was bummed to not see Tom Hanks there. That’s my guy. I think arguably the greatest actor of all time. If they do a movie about Meryl Streep’s life, Tom Hanks will play Meryl Streep. I’m convinced of his skill set.” — Adam Ray on Platform

5.11-13: Matt McClowry  

“I like kids, I just don’t like how people my age give their kids last names for first names. I have a friend who had three kids. She named them McKenna, Hunter and Finley. Those aren’t babies; that’s a law firm.” — Matt McClowry at Gotham Comedy Club

5.16: Jimmy O. Yang  

“Now don’t get me wrong. I’m all about animal rights. I’m all about free-range animals. But I still live in a one-bedroom apartment with two roommates. I’m not even a free-range human being, OK? I don’t need to eat a chicken that lived better than I do. The chicken’s on 20 acres in Napa; I’m in 200 square feet in Pacoima. That’s messed up.” — Jimmy O. Yang at the Laugh Factory

5.17-19: Jay Chandrasekhar 

“The most frustrated animal on a farm is a ghost cow. Because it’s invisible, right, it has one job. Its one job is to sneak up on the other cows and scare them, right? So it sneaks up on the other cows and it’s like ‘Boooooooo.’ And the other cows, they don’t hear that well, they’re like, ‘Yeah, yeah, moo.’ And the ghost cow’s like, ‘No, I said, Boo! It’s frustrating being a ghost cow.’ … Some of the jokes are just going to go that way.” — Jay Chandrasekhar on Just for Laughs

5.18: Tim Allen

“Women do their own particularly weird stuff. Watch a woman do a bikini wax. Boy, there’s something you’ll never see a man do. Hell, no. ‘Honey, I’m afraid that ball hair is going to sit right where it is.’ Even though, we’ll all agree that ball-area is pretty damn ugly. It’s like God had some elbow skin leftover.” — Tim Allen on Tim Allen Rewires America

“When white supremacists see an albino person do they think ‘lucky bastard?’” — Rick Ingraham on Twitter

@ Sycuan Live & Up Close, sycuan.com
