Comedian Rondell Sheridan brings new meaning to the manly art of "car talk." "I bought a brand new car," he tells his audience. "I'm not bragging or anything, but it's a real nice car. I have a Yugo Turbo G-2. . . . It doesn't have a bigger engine. It just has a cassette tape that goes 'VROOOOOM!' . . . I had a Hyundai, but I hit a squirrel--and broke it. The squirrel's OK."

Rondell Sheridan wants to throw a penalty flag on the National Football League for unnecessary roughness As the star of the new NBC sitcom "Minor Adjustments," Sheridan is running for rating points.

Jackie Guerra hopes to take her tremendous good fortune as far as she can. Guerra, 28, joins the ranks of several other stand-up comedians as she heads up a new sitcom this fall, WB's "First Time Out." It's a look at life in L.A. through the eyes of a young Latina. Unlike other comedians who join the fall lineup with sitcoms--Drew Carrey, Jeff Foxworthy, Rondell Sheridan and Ellen Cleghorne--Guerra didn't spend years honing her craft before she caught the attention of producers.
