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...

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.

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.

So the shock that your average audience member might experience hearing more...

Theo Von is the human embodiment of a small town success story. Born Theodor Capitani Vonkurnatowski in Convington, Louisiana (about 45 minutes north of New Orleans), the 34-year-old comedian began slinging jokes at a local coffee shop in 2003, driving 40 minutes just to perform seven minutes worth of material. “It was just a bunch of young guys trying to tell jokes, more...
