Didja ever hear the one about the state legislator who was a stand-up comedian?
Meet Vermont state Rep. Jason Lorber, who "does standup gigs, produces comedy shows and runs improv workshops when he's not making laws."
As he says, there are plenty of legislators whose actions can elicit laughter:
"When I first came here, people said `You're the first comedian to come to the Statehouse.' I say `I'm the first PROFESSIONAL comedian to come to the Statehouse,'" he said.
Yuk, yuk, yuk.
