Last week, we told you about the death threat levied against David Letterman via an Al-Quaeda message board. You see, on a recent episode of Late Show, Letterman made a joke about the recent death of suspected terrorist leader Ilyas Kashmiri. And someone didn't take kindly to it...

Forget everything you know about cooking. Well, at least, forget everything you know about cooking properly and actually eating what you make. A new web series made by musical comedian Henry Phillips (Punching the Clown) shows how cooking can be an hilariously existential...

I probably don’t need to tell you how much it meant for a comic to get called over to the couch on Johnny Carson’s The Tonight Show. A quick tête-à-tête with Johnny could be a comedian’s big break, so they took it wicked seriously. And, as it turns out, some take...

Jane Lynch is my favorite. Human. Of ever. And I'm super excited to see this promo for her big day next month, as she hosts the Emmys. She's gorgeous in that red dress and those golden gentlemen are delicious. Normally I would avoid the Emmys altogether ...but with this host...

Most Laughspin readers have a pretty good idea that life as a comedian can be difficult. Not only is there the prospect of trying to become an original voice in a self-destructive art form, but often times, there is little support or reassurance given that one is following the...

Last night, Louis C.K. stopped by Conan for a (thankfully) lengthy desk-side chat. The two funny gingers covered a lot of ground-- how awesome C.K.'s show Louie is, why Louis is shocked there isn't more murder in the world (especially at Disneyland); and perhaps most noteworthy,...

There's a number of ways in which a skilled comedian can handle a persistent heckler. Sometimes, it's a matter of straight-up engagement; maybe ignoring said heckler shuts them down; perhaps a burly bouncer can help out. Dealing with hecklers is an art in itself. But how does a...
