The Cork Report: Cork Test Drives ComedyWire

(SNN) I try to avoid watching 24/7 news networks or the locals as much as possible for health reasons. My doctor said my blood pressure rises high enough to catapult a jet off an aircraft carrier during Wolf Blitzer and “Fox & Friends.” Also my torn rotator cuff came from tossing large objects at my TV.

I’m a news junkie, so where to now? The best go-to place is gone--“The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.” Jon left the show, apparently to emcee Wrestlemania events. (True—it was his first gig since leaving)

At last count there were 3400 members,  mostly comedians, comedy writers, humorists and wannabees. Top vote getters are listed each day. I joined and contribute most days. But be careful, it’s addictive. Here some of my recent entries.
