Earlier this week, St. Vincent made an appearance on the new Comedy Central game show @Midnight, in which comedians compete to see who can get off the best quip. But Annie Clark was just there to read off a goofy clue. Last night, Neko Case was on the show, and she was there in more than a ceremonial capacity. She was there to compete, against actual stand-ups, on the show. She’s funnier than just about anyone else in the indieverse, but is Neko funnier than two random comedians? I don’t quite understand how the show’s scoring mechanism works; it seems to just be host Chris Hardwick cackling and yelling “points!” But Case, spoiler alert, won the night, and put the comedians in their collective motherfucking place. Watch a great triumph go down below or watch the whole episode here.
Case’s new album The Worse Things Get, The Harder I Fight, The Harder I Fight, The More I Love You is out now on Anti-.
