Important Things with Demetri Martin

By | February 9, 2009 at 7:14 am | One comment

If Demetri Martin, comedian, actor, screenwriter, expands his growing empire and opens a bemusement park (just picture the Super Bowl MVP someday shouting “I’m going to Demetriland”), then I want to be first in line for what would certainly be the most popular attraction:...

Robert Schimmel: Life Since Then

By | January 12, 2009 at 3:34 am | One comment

When the moment is right (as they say on those way more creepy than sexy Cialis commercials), most people shut the boudoir door and bolt it behind them. Not comedian Robert Schimmel. During his hour-long sex act, he flings open the door and virtually invites spectators into his...

Chad Daniels: Busy Being Awesome

By | January 8, 2009 at 11:58 am | No comments

Blue and black are the favorite shades in comedy, a generally off-color art form. The great masters George Carlin and Richard Pryor, the Da Vinci and Rembrandt of their profession, used painted prose and profanity to hilariously illustrate their points or stories. But swearing...

Tom McCaffrey: Lou Diamond Phillips?

By | September 15, 2008 at 3:48 pm | No comments

From the look of things, Tom McCaffrey is just another weed freak with a burgers-and-fries body, the sort of inert stoner who considers pushing his luck a strenuous cardio workout. Maybe this is why Mom told us never to judge a comic by his CD cover…or something like...

Last Comic Standing, Season 6, Episode 11: Live blog

Last Comic Standing, Season 6, Episode 10: live blog

8:10 Yea, the competition resumes on the right foot–without Paul Foot, who apparently forgot to pack his punchlines before flying from the U.K. to the USA. Foot Syndrome seems to be plaguing all the comics at the beginning of this episode, except for one yarmulke yuk from...
