Week five of Comedy Central's new stand-up comedy series The Half Hour brings two stellar acts to the stage: Joe Mande and Garfunkel and Oates. Mande, you no doubt know from Twitter, as he's easily one of the funniest cats on there. I like to think of him as a minimalist tweeter; some of his best jokes are simple re-tweets from damaged celebrities (think the more...

I met up with Nick Vatterott in the new "alt mecca" that is Williamsburg, Brooklyn where we arrived wearing the exact same London Fog overcoat ("Take that, Nick Turner!"). He hands me the new promo item for his debut album, For Amusement Only, something he sees as the future of comedians hawking merch after shows. Instead of carrying around a big box of CDs, he hands me a more...

Mark Normand, one of the fastest rising and most versatile comedians in the country, cut his teeth at open mics, bar shows and by performing in loft apartments. It's that work ethic -- and his joke writing prowess -- that helped the Louisana native earn the respect of his fellow comedians and industry alike. His first album Still Got It was released recently on Comedy more...

Yannis Pappas talks Maurica, Mr. Panos and his journey back to comedy (Laughspin Interview)

When I first started doing stand-up in college, I used to produce dorm shows at NYU to create stagetime and would be somewhat frugal in who I put on my shows, only wanting the funniest. A comic I booked asked if I would put his friend Yannis up, who I still didn't know at the time having only been doing comedy for maybe a year. I said, "Sure. I can give him five minutes." more...

If you were sitting in a comedy club and saw Mike Vecchione get on stage without knowing anything about him, you'd think that a cop or a firefighter quit the force to do comedy. You might expect a "tough guy" voice or maybe something akin to a former frat guy telling you the funny ways to chug a beer. So the shock that your average audience member might experience hearing more...
