Daryl Wright: “Wildly Inappropriate” (Review)

Rory Scovel: “Dilation” (Review)

How to describe Rory Scovel: think Bert Kreischer meets Anthony Jeselnik. That is, picture a storyteller, philosopher, and absurdist, whom you can’t quite decide whether he's a nice guy or a huge asshole. Either way, he’s pretty damn funny. And if that description sounds...

Baron Vaughn: “Raised By Cable” (Review)

Baron Vaughn’s debut album Raised By Cable is an hour-long set of highs and lows that will most likely polarize audiences. It’s not that you’ll either love it or hate it; it’s more that you’ll either find it highly interesting, or highly forgettable. The Las Vegas...

“50/50″ stays true to its buzz; is equally funny and stark

“50/50″ stays true to its buzz; is equally funny and stark

It seems in a world of trailers designed to trick people into watching a different film than the one that was actually made, a movie delivering on what it promised would seem out of the question. 50/50 bucks that trend and fulfilled on what every TV spot, late night TV...

Last year saw the release of several brilliant comedy albums, one of which was undoubtedly Joe DeRosa’s dark gem The Depression Auction. The album is filled with DeRosa’s characteristic angst and frustration. More important, though, The Depression Auction is, in a word,...

While Los Angeles and New York City remain the two main hubs of comedy in the United States, there are talented, dedicated comedians that have managed to work the road across the country and not transplant their entire lives over to either coast. Unfortunately, the sacrifice...

Wyatt Cenac’s debut album Comedy Person is smart, perceptive and witty— pretty much every characteristic one would ascribe to a stellar comedy album. Clocking in at over an hour long, the 13-track album covers a wide range of material while averting any lulls. It's easy to...

EDINBURGH -- Ask yourself an important question: do you have a “Disney STD?” Or worse, a “Disney STD-VD?” Before you check for Sebastian in your crotch, let me translate that a Disney “STD-VD” is Thom Tuck’s acronym for the “Straight To DVD” movies that...

EDINBURGH -- “We’re artists. We shouldn’t have to prostitute ourselves.” That battle cry came wafting over the high-walls of The Pear Tree’s outside courtyard. On-stage is The Anti-Poet, Paul Eccentric on clever beat-poetry vocals and Ian Newman keeping the upright...
