« No more U.S. immunity from the ICC? | Main | More on "Last Comic Standing 2" »

June 20, 2004



One of the comics who advanced from the second night--Tammy Pescatelli--used to be the TV commercial spokesperson for Hy Vee foods here in Iowa. This was back in the early or mid 1990s. She'd stand in front of a faux brick wall backdrop (like the Improv) with the Hy Vee logo on it and tell jokes about green beans and grocery stores. It was one of those unbelievably irritating campaigns that made you run for the clicker to turn the channel everytime an ad came on because you just couldn't stand to watch one more second of it (if you saw her performance last week, you know what I mean). It must have been effective, though, because the campaign ran for two or three years, as I recall.

I thought Piscatelli was not as good as Kathleen Madigan (who made it into the House) but better than Bonnie McFairlane, Sue Costello, or Kerry Louise. . . .


What a sad fall for Sue Costello. A few seasons ago she had her own sitcom on FOX (it was awful, by the way, one of the worst shows I've ever seen on TV). Now she's using this show as her own Northern League, desperately trying to get one last shot at the big time.
