When Creative Loafing held its annual Best of the Bay 2015 award ceremony last night, few were surprised to see Cigar City Comedy among the list of winners. Over the past few years, Cigar City Comedy has established itself as the gold standard for comedic entertainment in Central Florida. The talented group of entertainers has already produced an MTV reality icon (John Jacobs), 2014's Florida's Funniest Comedian (JB Ball), and a social media superstar featured by Ellen DeGeneres, Jimmy Kimmel, Playboy, and Funny Or Die (Matt Fernandez), as well as numerous nationally-recognized standup comedians.
Last year, I sat down and wrote a relatively thought-out article giving
the best tips possible to those fringe fantasy football players who don’t feel
like doing any research. It stemmed from my stupid wife winning a
championship amongst a number of well-respected fantasy minds. It felt
good — helping others attempt to weasel out an accidental championship.
Then, my stupid wife goes off and wins her second consecutive
championship and now everyone can just suck my ass.
August 1st from 4:00pm to 5:00pm, come be a part of the

It’s summertime, so many of you will be going on vacation – some even internationally. I myself have been in Japan for a month so you could say I’m worldly as fuck. Based on this past month, I’ve assembled some travel tips for those of you about to go into a foreign country.
