Being producer of the Bill Spadea Show, I get to hear Bill tell the dreaded #MuffinJoke about 3 times a week. It's painful at this point.

Based on Bill's new career in comedy, I figured hey, why not give stand up comedy a chance also? So I decided to start a new video web series called "Make a Comic Laugh."

I'm going to get REAL comics to join me , I'll tell them jokes and see what their reactions are. I was pleased that the first comic I was able to shoot the video series with was the owner of the Stress Factory and a hysterical comedian, the one and only Vinnie Brand.

Vinnie is a tough act to follow, so I figured, if I could get Vinnie to laugh at one of my jokes, I may have a shot at this comedy thing.

Check out the video above to see how I made out. (HINT: I have a LOT of work ahead of me!)
