COMEDY CORRESPONDENT Comic Andy Kindler is a regular TV phe-nom these days. He's been featured on Comedy Central's new hit show, "Tosh.O," Fox's "The Kil-born File," and most prominently, on this summer's "Last Comic Standing," where he shares judging duties on the NBC show with comics Greg Giraldo and Natasha Leggero.

Well, hopefully this interview will not make you more nauseous. You've been a busy guy, Andy. You deserve to be nauseous.

You've earned it! KINDLER: Finally, right? It's been a good year, for a change. You were big for a while, and then you kind of evened out, and now all of a sudden, BOOM! NBC! KINDLER: Yeah. Up and down. I love that up and down maybe you can't pay your rent, maybe you could buy a house! My readers want to tually every audience cutaway contains at least three good-looking women.

That's how excited I get; that it's even close to being my name. wonder what Gary iPad thinks about all this. KINDLER: (laughs) Yeah! What's his problem with it?
