Glass is funny — that's a given — but it's his demeanor on and off stage that cracks me up. He's a force to be reckoned with, and sometimes will break out in song for no apparent reason. This comedian is the consummate pro: He made his mark in the business early (by the time he was 18) and, despite being a headliner, still opens for many big-time friends including Sarah Silverman and David Spade.
It's good news we were able to slip Rocky LaPorte in before the year closes — and it's a bonus having Ron Morey back as well. It's no secret that these two are not only great comics, but are also great friends. Although a favorite at comedy venues around the country for years, it was NBC's "Last Comic Standing" that introduced America to LaPorte. The show propelled his career to a higher level of exposure, and his bookings increased substantially — so we're fortunate to have him up here this week.
Since the presidential election let's just say Sharma's become more than just passionate about politics: He likes to challenge those who voted a certain way, and uses his comedy to deliver an insightful opinion that is both humorous and cutting at times. Interesting, too, that Sharma wound up a stand-up comedian. He was born and raised in Dallas, Texas, in a traditional Hindu household.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
