Thanks to Robopanda for sending over this clip of a 25-year-old Simon Pegg doing stand-up comedy back in 1995.  It’s obviously not a new clip, but I hadn’t seen it before, so INDULGE ME.  It’s a British audience, and pretty much every joke has to do with being British, but it still holds up fairly well (PLAID SHIRTS ARE STILL COOL!).  The most disappointing part is that the guy who introduces him says, “Our next act is 25, I’ve got suits older than that!”

It’s disappointing, because at first I thought he said “I’ve got soups older than that!” which would’ve been far more hilarious and British.
