Our December show was a blast. Thank you to everyone who came out to enjoy the show. This was the last show of 2012 and it was one hell of a finale.

Matt Ingebretson hosts a monthly show at the Downtown Independent theater in Downtown Los Angeles called Art Fuck (http://artfuckcomedy.tumblr.com/) which hosts amazing comics from Southern California and beyond, some of whom you may even recognize from past NBT shows! Check that out during the monthly Art Walk next time you are in LA. Also check out his new web-series, Matt’s Game Chamber where he talks video games and interviews comedians in his basement. It’s extraordinarily funny.
Our opening comic was Mike Ula who you can catch all around San Diego. Follow him on Facebook for updates on where he will be next.
Catch our next show on January 2nd for our 1 year anniversary spectacular! See the guys that bring you NBT every month performing stand-up on their own show for the first time! Have a Merry Holidays everyone and see you all in the new year!
School is about to start and New Best Thing is ready. Join Sam and Dan along with San Diego’s funniest as they ring in the new school year with all the hilarious sketches and stand-up comics you’ve come to expect from the most unique comedy revue in town!

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.
Always remember guys…
The guys made a sketch for June’s show which is fantastic. Hopefully it’s enough to tide you over as July’s show is cancelled because it falls on the 4th and we freaking love America.

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

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!
Unsatisfied with the rest of the shows presented, John Executive gives Sam and Dan one last chance to impress him.
NBT On TV: Finding The Lindbergh Baby
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.
