Friend of TLB, Joe Sib recently performed at The Laugh Factory and gave us all a bit of an education about his growing up as a punk rocker. He also breaks down which celebrities people often think he looks like.
Doug Benson touched upon this concept on his last stand-up album, Potty Mouth but now it’s looking like the comedian’s movie, The Greatest Movie Ever Rolled will hit theaters before the end of the year. Benson once again takes a nod from Morgan Spurlock’s documentaries and sets out to raise money for a movie about going on a comedy tour by going on a comedy tour. Bringing fellow comedian Graham Elwood along for the ride.
Of course the comedian is a “known pot smoker” so there’s plenty of drug humor for fellow stoners. Check out the trailer now.

It’s not often we mention something like the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame on TLB. Unless it’s to say it’s a joke! Amiright folks!?
Anyway, yesterday they announced who will be handling all the introduction duties and it turns out that Chris Rock will handle the induction duties for the Red Hot Chili Peppers. What does this mean? It means with any luck we’ll get to see Rock shake a tambourine as the band performs during the ceremony, that’s what it means.
Rock directed the music video for the band’s Stadium Arcadium song Hump de Bump and had a cameo in the vid along with Craig Robinson.
After a SXSW Q&A about their new movie The Babymakers, Jay Chandrasekhar and Kevin Heffernan (aka Team RamRod) took to the stage and announced that Super Troopers 2 finally had a completed script. The duo then stated theat they were sending the script out to studios for consider. Super Troopers was the film turned the duo’s comedy troupe Broken Lizard into celeb staus. And though they’ve released some great and solid follow up films, none have capitalized on the cult status as Troopers.
IFC just releases some footage from the upcoming Comedy Bang! Bang! TV show based on the podcast of the same name hosted by Scott Aukerman. As we mentioned before, the show premieres this June and is a mix of improv, pre-recorded bits, and general Reggie Watts awesomeness.
Each of the ten episodes features sit-downs with some of the biggest names in comedy, taking them beyond Aukerman’s couch and engaging them with the off-beat world of the series. With the help of bandleader and one-man musical mastermind Reggie Watts (Conan), Comedy Bang! Bang! reinvents the celebrity interview with unfiltered and improvisational lines of questioning, punctuated by banter and beats. Also packed with sketches, character cameos, filmic shorts and games, Comedy Bang! Bang! turns the traditional talk show on its head, delivering thirty minutes of absurd fun. [IFC]
