In preparation for this Sunday, which marks the 10-year anniversary of the World Trade Center attacks in New York City, CNN chatted with a few great comics so that they could share what it was to return to their job telling jokes. In the video below, we get some quick insights...

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...

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,...

Steve Carell was one of the final guests on Conan O’Brien’s The Tonight Show, and, unsurprisingly, his appearance on the show wasn’t any old guest spot. Instead of touting a project or lamenting the sorry state of NBC, Carell performed Conan’s exit interview. Last night,...

In a classic case of just-not-good-enough ratings, TBS has decided to cancel comedian George Lopez's late-night chat show Lopez Tonight. And the network isn't wasting any time getting it off the air. Tomorrow night will be the show's last airing. Although it seems clear, there's...

The Laughspin Interview with Jimmy Pardo

Being a big fan of Jimmy Pardo's work and helping bring his Never Not Funny Podcast to Chicago, I was really looking forward to this interview. I call Pardo while he’s driving to Conan, where he’s the opening act each night. He's anxious to get right to the questions. When...

Listen, I'm not one to say, "We told you so," but when we (then, Punchline Magazine) said in 2009, that Myq Kaplan was a "comic to watch" we were pretty sure we'd end up being right. Since that time, Kaplan has finished in the top five of Last Comic Standing, released a...

Marc Maron popped up on Conan last night. And, it was a treat, as it always is. These two have known each other for 18 years and though they're not exactly besties, the onscreen chemistry they have is some of the best on late night television. In their seven-minute chat last...
