Chappelle's Show vet and Comedy Cellar regular Kurt Metzger says he's done courting the ire of bloggers who feign outrage in the service of page counts: "If you like it, good, and otherwise don't even watch it. I don't need to break it down any more than that." At the final party of Montreal's Just for Laughs comedy festival, he reflects on his recent successes...and his subsequent lack of leisure time.

On Tuesday, June 17, he's taping his first special at the Village Underground and while it's sold out, not to worry because you can always get your "Bobby fix" through his wildly popular "You Know What Dude" podcast on The RiotCast Network. Before his big event goes down this Tuesday, we talked to this insanely funny guy to find out what else he's got going on and as it would turn out, we opened a Pandora's Box.
