Comedy! Sweaters

I kind of like this guy's style. And the baldness/hat joke. There are a few comics who settle on a delivery that seems like it shouldn't work, but they make it work. Stephen Wright is famous for this, of course.

'You see lots of people with hair but not many with thousand dollar hats.' Excellent.

Since he reminded us of Steven White I'll share one of his drolleries:

'Hello, is Joey there?'
'Yes, he's here.'
'Can I talk to him?'
'No, he's only six months old.'
'Okay, I'll wait.'

Oh, we've all been there with spell check. :)

But yeah, that is a beautiful bit of his that you quoted. Also like, "I went out and bought batteries, but they weren't included, so I had to buy them again."
