Point of interest:

If, for some reason, you have it in your head to book Randy Chestnut for a show (or just want to know where he's coming from, comedy-wise), here are a few things you might want to know:
In the parlance of comedy, Randy is known as something of a "club comic." What this means is that he likes to swear more than the Cadillac™ Dealers of South Central Michigan (or any equally "family-oriented" company) might like. He also covers topics that - while common - tend to push the buttons of the more straightlaced crowd. Among these are: homosexuality, politics, religion, and race relations. To be clear, Randy isn't there to judge how you live your life, but he is there to mock you for it. Consider the following, and base a decision on it's merits:

"I don't like to think she kicked me in the balls; I like to think  I teabagged her foot."
                    - Randy Chestnut

"Being an Iraqi and working at a gas station is too ironic. It's like being Vietnamese and naming your kid 'Charlie'. It's just wrong."
                    - Randy Chestnut

"My last relationship wasn't going all that well for a while. For the last year, we were 'swingers'; she just forgot to mention it to me."
                    - Randy Chestnut

"The guy says, 'Why don't you name one great thing you've done with your life that Jesus didn't do?!?'
I said, 'Uh... turn thirty-four?'"
                    - Randy Chestnut
