Boy this years campaign trail has been painful. Campaignful even! It’s been a long, hard road and these two jerks never seem to get it right even after they’ve had chance after chance to prove themselves. But the big day is coming up and frankly we couldn’t be more happy that it’s all over. Wait, presidential who? Proposition what? You’re going to put that where?! No stupid! I’m talking about New Best Thing!
November brings us a yet another installment of your favorite monthly comedy revue and this one is promising to be mint. Sam and Dan are brewing up some fantastic sketches and videos and some good friends, old and new, will be gracing the stand-up stage.

Remember this guy? You should. It’s Andy Haynes! He headlined the last NBT and he was just on Conan. Boy can we pick’em! Check out his set and follow him on the olde Facebook. Also Twitter. Probably has other stuff too but start there. I don’t want to overwhelm you.
I know we haven’t talked in a while. I just needed a break, you know? I mean, I just felt like we sold out a bit too much last time and, I don’t know, we just felt apart for a few months. Tell you what though, we’ve had some times; plenty of laughs and memories. How’s about we give it another go? You open, say Wednesday, August 1st? What should we do? I was thinking about some steamy sex-time… oh, anything for me? You’re gosh-darn right!
New Best Thing presents… HAUTE SEX! The guys are back from a brief break and totes DTF. Down to funny! This month takes us to the age-olde topic of sex. What is it? How do you do it? Why is there such a funny feeling in the inner pants zone? See Sam and Dan become men and host a night of live sketches, video and stand-up from:
Kate Lee David Cope Andy Haynes
Guaranteed, as always to be the most fun you’ll have 1st Wednesday of every month!

Gather ‘round! Big news out of the ole New Best Thing headquarters. We have our regularly scheduled monthly show, first Wednesday of each month at Whistle Stop coming up right around the corner on June 6th.
New Best Thing presents: NBT For Profit! This time around, Sam and Dan might have to make changes to the show when an unexpected guest drops in and offers them a chance to make millions off corporate sponsorship. Will our hosts be able to resist the beckoning call of corporate sponsorship or will they submit to a fate plastered in logos and brand names? Come see the show to find out!
Sam and Dan bring you the best in San Diego performing live sketches as always along with some great guest stand up comedians.
In other news, we’ve managed to pick up on a great opportunity and will be putting on a live stand up showcase at American Comedy Company in downtown San Diego!
It will be the first strictly stand-up comedy show for New Best Thing and our lineup is absolutely fantastic.
New Best Thing Live! at the American Comedy Co. Thursday, June 21st American Comedy Company 818 6th Ave San Diego, CA 92101 8pm, 21+, $10
More details (and a better poster) to come.
Bonus track! We won’t be having a July show at Whistle as the first Wednesday falls on the 4th and well, we freaking love America but… not quite allowed to count my chickens or let the cat out of the bag (on account of the chickens) but there’s a rumor going around that NBT will have a very, very special Comic-Con show this July with a very, very special guest (or guests) that you should be very, very excited about. Keep up with the show to find out more!
Cryptozoology is a big field these days. We decided to jump on the bandwagon, but have a little bit of originality, with Finding The Lindbergh Baby. Nobody talks about the Lindbergh baby anymore and it’s about time we found the little guy.
