Stand-up Shots: Comedians at a glimpse (Vol. 2)

"I got mugged once, but I'm poor, so we were both disappointed.  He was like 'You have 83 cents and a Sony walkmen? What do you do?'  I was like, 'I'm a comedian.'  He's like, 'Oh. I used to be a comedian. You should try mugging.'  I was like, "Thanks for the tip, Carlos Mencia."  No, I'm kidding. Carlos Mencia would never steal from another comedian."

About 15 months ago I put together this collection of ‘Stand-Up Shots,’ a collection of photos posted by aspiring stand-up comedians in which they superimpose a joke of theirs on top of a photo. At the time I first posted, these photos came from a then burgeoning sub-reddit that I assumed was poised to be ‘the next big thing.’ Well, 15 months later I may have been wrong about it being the next big thing, but with 117,000+ subscribers, it’s certainly no slouch.

So, what have these up-and-coming comedians been up to over the past year? Let’s find out, shall we?

For reference, each photo here is coming from the sub-reddit Stand-Up Shots, and below each photo you can find links to the original post on Reddit as well as social media (Twitter/YouTube/etc) links to the comedian, and if you’re smart you’ll go follow them so you can be privy to the jokes firsthand.
