Tuesday Talent Show #63

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and have been enjoying getting ready for the holiday season.

I first want to start out by saying sorry that I missed posting last week’s Tuesday Talent Show. This season is crazy busy and sometimes things slip my mind from time to time (or all the time).

I had the opportunity this last weekend to go see Brian Regan live. Some of you may know who he is and others might not.  He is a comedian who is super clean and super funny. My family owns all of his DVDs he has put out. My favorite skit of his would have to be the “Emergency Room” skit. It has always been a personal favorite, but after my husbands medical scare earlier this year with several trips to the ER, he and I found ourselves quoting this whole skit throughout his stay in the hospital. For the encore presentation he did this skit. My husband and I just adore it. So here it is if you want to play and laugh, too :)


Good stuff, right?!

Here are this week’s features:


Peppermint Bark Brownies from French Press


Hot Chocolate Santa Hat Brownies


Hamburger Soup from Lil’ Luna


Chocolate Scones with Candy Cane Kisses form Echoes of Laughter


Molasses Triple Chocolate Cookies from Averie Cooks

    We, too, saw Brian a few years ago in Denver. I cried until I looked like Alice Cooper and thought I broke my ribs I was that sore from laughing.. He was hysterically more funny in person, if that was at all possible, and I'd go see him again in a heart beat. LOVED the clip!
    Thanks for hosting, too!

  16. Crystal

    Absolutely died of laughing so hard!!! Thanks for the clip!! I needed a good laugh!!
