The week of stand-up comedy that is the New York Comedy Festival has come to a wrap. With it one hell of a week of great comedy times from seeing some of our absolute favorite comedians to some new folks that we just learned about. It was a great week all around and as the final night goes on, we end it with a bang. Read More
New York Comedy Festival Day 4: Kroll Show, John Mulaney, Anthony Jeselnik, and What’s Your Effing Deal?
Saturday night is a great night for comedy in the city and when the NYCF is happening, it means there’s just more of the heavy hitters than usual. We scattered across the city on a night where some of the best comedy was happening with heavy hitters like Nick Kroll, John Mulaney and Anthony Jeselnik. We were also witness to one the best ideas the fest had (in our opinion) with Big Jay Oakerson’s “What’s Your Effing Deal?” Judging by the line outside of the venue, we weren’t the only ones.

How psyched were we for night #3 of the New York Comedy Festival? Well not only were we in the city to spend some time seeing great comedians but we were also afforded the chance to head out of the city for some off-fest time with a comedy legend. Read More
New York Comedy Festival Day 2: Jay Pharoah, Time Out Live, Set List, Julian McCullough and a sweet party
Day two of the New York Comedy Festival just kept on giving us access to some of the best comedy the city has to offer including NY vets and a peak at how the other end of the coast is living with Paul Provenza bringing his highly popular Set List to the East Coast for one night. We were at both UCB Theaters to see some of NY’s newest voices as well as spent some time with Julian McCullough who used to hang out in NYC all the time but recently made the move both to the West Coast and became a new father. We capped the night with a great hang with everyone at Comedy Central’s NYCF party where way too many friends were in attendance. New York, we love you. Read More

It’s Halloween! And we’re ‘fraidy cats up here at The Laugh Button Towers. Mainly because we saw a scary movie once as a kid and it made us pee our pants and go running to our mom (don’t knock us, we’ve all been in a pants peeing situation or two in our lifetimes). It’s because of this we’ve never been caught at a Saturday night double feature gore fest. But yeah, you will not find us at a Saturday afternoon bloodfest feature.
But that doesn’t mean comedians aren’t. In fact they love movies, and horror films so we asked a few to tell us to recall their favorite horror flick. Take their suggestions and then make yourself your own Saturday afternoon bloodfest viewing party. Read More
Comedians spend a buttload of time on the road. We’ve heard all their stories, from putting up with airline security to being asked to sleep in some really sketchy locations. But this is not the case if you are staying at a Holiday Inn. The chain of hotels just spent $1 billion in funds upgrading and relaunching its hotels. What does a $1 billion relaunch look like? You can find out pretty easily at any Holiday Inn locations. Customers (including comedians) told them what they wanted, leaving thousands of reviews on Holiday Inn’s website sharing how they’ve changed. From simple upgrades, to larger work spaces, TVs, best like space to new amenities like a gym and restaurants.
You know what you like, Holiday Inn likes that. So they’re once again headed back to the consumer to come up with musical numbers based on their customer reviews for their line of hotels. Your stay at Holiday Inn will be enjoyable but you also shouldn’t be surprised if an attractive blonde lady shows up to sing you some songs on her guitar. In this clip Holiday Inn deployed their own songwriter way to pen some jingles about the user experience in the freshly renovated locations. If you think about it, there are way worse ways to have our gratitude re-paid to us than a woman singing about our stay.
If you want to see what thousands of other customers had to say about their recent stays at the new and improved Holiday Inns, visit Holiday Inn and change your view.
