Comedy Bits About Music, Musicians and/or Bands?

I'm looking for stand-up comedy bits (1-4 mins) on the subject of music -- ideally making fun of bands and/or musicians. I am NOT looking for comedy music -- i.e. no songs please, only stand up talking bits. An example of what I mean is this bit by D'Elia about rappers laughing: http://youtu.be/pI5LZEn0qEU Any others out there, preferably not about rap since I already have that one? Thanks :)

Has anyone heard of a stand-up comic named David Jerusalem? The tricky part is that I might be misremembering the name.

Back in the late 90s, I think in the winter of 1997-8, I saw a stand-up comedian on Conan O'Brien that blew me away but I've never been able to track him down since. I think his name was David Jerusalem. He made jokes about the Olympics and having been a heroin addict. He didn't perform in front of a mic but was interviewed by Conan. I've been trying to find information about this guy for years without success, does my description ring any bells for you? [more inside]

Wanted: Comedy albums

What are some good comedy albums to get? I recently purchased the two latest David Cross albums, as well as Bill Hicks "Rant in E Minor," and now I am hooked on this medium. Any suggestions?
