Kevin McPeek

of this New York City-based comic (and former Monroe resident), it all adds up to some plus-size laughter.

It's hard to get anyone to really talk about what it's like to be fat these days. The people who experience this firsthand every day don't tend to make a lot of jokes at their own expense. And the people who don't experience this firsthand every day tend not to make mention of "issues of size" for fear of lawsuits, firings, humiliation, guilt, shame, and the threat of mandatory sensitivity training at one's place of employment. But McPeek's got nothing to hide — nothing. In fact, early in his act, he introduces to the audience the visual concept of himself naked.

"And so I'm sitting around my house . . . naked. . . ."
"And so I'm driving downtown . . . naked. . . ."
"And so I'm in the tub . . ."
By this time the whole crowd is shouting it out, "NAKED!"
