Giulia Rozzi will host The Laugh Button Live! tomorrow night. That’s right, she’ll be wranging the night of great stand-up comics. Watch this clip of her at the UCB Theatre in NYC and then get some tickets to our live stand-up show tomorrow.
T.J. Miller has been cast as one of the leads in a FOX sitcom. The show, The Goodwin Games was already picked up by the network and is a single-camera show from the creators of How I Met Your Mother production trio of Carter Bays, Craig Thomas, and Chris Harris.
Miller will play one of the three leads of siblings who reconnect after the death of their father who leaves them a fortune but only under the condition that they agree to his conditions. Miller is coming in as a re-cast for actor Jake Lacy who played the youngest sibling in the pilot. Miller originally played a similar character in a pilot that was not picked up by FOX but the brass in charge liked Miller so much, they looked for ways to keep him around.
Dan Soder will perform at The Laugh Button Live! this Wednesday. So be there or he will call you a creeper? What does that mean you ask? Soder explains…
Tom Kenny is probably best known as the voice of SpongeBob on the hit animated children’s series SpongeBob SquarePants. But if you take a second to look at his IMDb page, you’ll quickly realize he’s probably at least one of the voices (if not more) on an animated show you watch. Whether it be Adventure Time or Ultimate Spider-Man, the man gets around, and the story of how he got there is as interesting as it is inspiring.

Longtime Howard Stern Show producer/personality Gary Dell’Abate (a.k.a Baba Booey) will be joining the likes of Neil Patrick Harris, “Weird Al” Yankovic, and Rob Zombie on the ever popular Nerdist Channel on YouTube.
Dell’Abate’s new show, They Call Me Baba Booey will feature Gary’s Rain Man-esque mental encyclopedia of music and pop culture trivia and current happenings interjected with frequent geek outs of the audio/video tech gadget variety.
“In Gary’s other job, he is ridiculed for being an audiophile and a tech head,” states Nerdist founder Chris Hardwick, “BUT NOT HERE AT NERDIST! We welcome him to our nerdly fold to work amongst his own kind, like Professor X welcoming a young mutant to the Xavier Institute.” Read More
