People always ask me what comedians I like to watch. Answers include Jim Gaffigan, Louis CK, Ellen, Jerry Seinfeld, Mike Birbiglia... love them. But I have a new answer. Michael Jr Comedy. And it's not that I just want to watch him. I want to follow him. Yeah... like a real creep.
"Male. Ethnically Ambiguous. Average looking (i.e. no one will mistake him for a model). Out of shape is preferred. Shower scene so must be comfortable without his shirt on."
