Comix Spotlight with John Roberts
I can’t get the sound to play on my computer, but John Roberts’s YouTube videos still made me laugh. “The Christmas Tree” was nominated for a broadband Emmy Award and was featured on VH-1’s Best Week Ever and Comedy Central’s Insider. Watching Roberts in the flesh (with sound) should be even better.
