Jeffrey Gurian’s Favorite Comedy Things! A 2015 Year in Review

It’s almost impossible to try and list my top comedy moments from 2015, because there were just so many. Trying to only choose 15 was a monumental task. Last year I did more of a review than a “Top 15” list, but this year I decided to try and list the 15 events that meant the most to me. Some of them I was involved in personally, others not, ... but all of them were events I attended to cover for my column in The Interrobang. It’s important to emphasize that they are NOT in order. Every one of them could theoretically be #1.

Ronnie B Quotes: The Game

As the Ron and Fez Show comes to an end, and Fez Whatley rides off into the retirement sunset we wanted to honor a great man, with great quotes.  The one and only Ron Bennington.  The tradition started when Wackback's own LiddyRules, started the infamous Ron Bennington's Line of the Day, a true treasure trove of the greatness of Ronnie B. That tradition was followed by @RonnieBQuotes where lines under 140 characters could be memorialized and enjoyed for at least a short period of time.  We've taken quotes from 2014-2015 to see if you can correctly decide the missing word.  Be careful there are some decoy phrases hiding amongst the correct answers.  Good luck and good quotes.
