I thought this was great stand up. Well written and well delivered. To be great at stand up you have to be comfortable with yourself, your material and your audience and it felt like Sal is on all three counts. Very funny and solid stuff.

Sal controls the audience well and presents himself well. His premises aren't ones I've heard before, either, which is nice. The family stuff, particularly, feels personal and that always draws people in.

a crotchety old man trapped in the body of a dashing young man...Calanni's material about his conservative family is hilarious... keep an eye out for him. He's got plenty of ammo.
