AUSTIN – First of all, major kudos are due to the organizers of the first annual Moontower Comedy & Oddity Fest for refraining from naming their all-female stand-up show “Taco Party.” (It must have been especially hard to resist, considering that this lineup was...

Moontower Comedy Fest: Nick Offerman offers oddly inspirational show of jokes, music, and more

AUSTIN -- There’s no denying that Nick Offerman is a hot piece of comedy property right now. From his show stopping role as the iconic Ron Swanson to his celebrity power couple marriage to Megan Mullally (insofar as ubiquitous, beloved character actors can be considered a...

AUSTIN -- Seth Meyers is a lot funnier than you'd think, and chances are you probably already find the affable, devastatingly handsome host of Saturday Night Live’s Weekend Update pretty damn funny. The Austin audience in attendance at Thursday night's Moontower Comedy Fest...

Review: Dylan Brody’s new album is entertaining and funny, if a bit high-brow

Review: Dylan Brody’s new album is entertaining and funny, if a bit high-brow

I must admit: Dylan Brody’s latest album, Chronological Disorder, left me amused but somewhat perplexed. Disorder begins by introducing Brody as a “purveyor of fine words and phrases,” a description that could not be more apt. The comedian has found success not only in...

Was I the only one confused at the start of this episode? I rewound it three times (is rewinding still a thing? I’m 80.) because I was sure it was an old episode. They’re back from break, it’s all New Year’s baby Jesus…what the hell? It’s March. Then I realized,...

Review: New ‘Believer’ book with Sedaris, C.K., Oswalt and more, gives life to old tradition

Review: New ‘Believer’ book with Sedaris, C.K., Oswalt and more, gives life to old tradition

Ask a comedian for advice, and more likely than not, you’ll get a joke. Editor Eric Spitznagel at The Believer knows this, so he and Amy Sedaris started a humor/advice column and called it “Sedaratives.” In each issue of the magazine, “Sedaratives” is taken over by a...

AUSTIN -- Alright, y’all! We’ve officially passed the halfway point of South by Southwest, which means the interactive, tech-savvy nerds (in other words, my people) have departed to be replaced by hipsters in skintight jeans and horrifyingly thin mustaches. Dudes, please...

Review: Doug Stanhope’s ‘Before Turning the Gun on Himself’ is lively, full of loathing

Although Doug Stanhope doesn't stick a pistol in his mouth at the end of his new album, Before Turning the Gun on Himself, you'd have to admit it would be a killer closer. Instead, the comedy veteran turns the gun on society-- yet again, blasting away at a celebrity-obsessed...
