anybody seen 'Billy Bob Neck' perform or heard his comedy?
He's at the Comedy Studio tonight - seems like he's Boston's own Stephen Colbert.

-snip- /

He gets the last laugh when it comes to right-wing politics

"Comedian Paul Day could have been any casual fan last Friday at the Comedy Studio. A 44-year-old father of two from Watertown, slight of build and nondescript in his white dress shirt and jeans, he tends to blend into a crowd. About halfway through the show, Day got up and sneaked quietly into the closet that serves as the club's dressing room.

He emerged as God-fearin', liberal-hatin' Billy Bob Neck, in a John Deere cap and denim jacket with leather collar, his bottom lip pouched with chewing tobacco and his eyes brimming with righteous anger, a guitar slung around his back. Neck faced the crowd, pausing as he looked around the room. "I'd like to start this off with a prayer, if you don't mind," he said with a definite twang, bringing uncomfortable laughter.

"Heavenly Father, welcome me into this den of liberal secularism and protect me from the evil that lies there within," said Neck before offering up his wish for a constitutional amendment allowing George W. Bush to serve indefinitely and asking God to make sure Barack Obama doesn't become president and that Al Gore is blamed for the Justice Department scandal. He finished up with a song about bringing Jesus to Iraq."


"Though he can sympathize with those who may find his act offensive, Day feels the need to fight people like James Dobson and Rush Limbaugh, people he sees as using the faade of religion to advance political ideas at odds with tolerance and forgiveness. "Billy Bob is meant to push it to the point where people go, that just can't be true," he says. "What he's saying is just factually inaccurate. I've heard other people talk like that, maybe they're factually inaccurate, too."


I might just have to check hime out tonight! sounds hysterical
