There are dirty comics, there are filthy comics, and there is Skippy Greene. Standing on stage looking like a comedian straight out of the borscht belt chomping on a cigar and sporting a killer ‘stache, Greene delivers comedy the old school way, and you either get it…or you don’t. Read More

Last week we mentioned that Andy Samberg and the rest of The Lonely Island crew were going to be in the new Jack Johnson music video. But the usually even-keeled Johnson takes things up a notch and confronts Samberg because of the impressions he makes of the singer on SNL.
Until now, there was only a trailer for the video but the full thing was just released so now we get to watch the two duke it out to the mellow rock sounds of Jack Johnson. If you told me that all mellow rock music had videos of two guys fighting, I’m pretty sure I’d listen to more mellow rock, just sayin’.
This week is the beginning week for the new season of television and this pretty much means new comedies are starting up this week, most notably the Thursday night lineup of sitcoms like 30 Rock and Community both of which have new DVDs of on the shelves this week. It also marks a new season of Saturday Night Live with guest Amy Poehler. Zach Galifianakis fans will be happy to learn that Bored to Death returns to HBO for its second season this Sunday.
This week also marks the digital-only release of the new Anthony Jeselnik album, Shakespeare. It’s a digital-only album so that means you pretty much have no excuse to click on a few links and
album. If you are unfamiliar with Jeselnik go here and read up on what could be your new favorite comedian.

It’s weird to think of a world that didn’t have David Letterman’s “Top 10 List” in it but all things have to start somewhere.
It’s a comedic gag that has stood the test of time and now its also 25 years old. This past weekend (September 18th) marked the date a quarter-century ago when Letterman first debuted his list while he was still on NBC doing the late late night show.
The subject of the first list? “Top 10 Words That Almost Rhyme With Peas.” Watch it unfold now… Read More
Earlier this year we had the chance to attend the taping of Anthony Jeselnik’s new comedy album, Shakespeare. It was recorded at the UCB Theater in New York. It was a night of classic Jeselnik’s balls-and-bravado comedy as he told a string of jokes with perfect timing, pausing perfectly too long to get the chuckle then set up the next joke.
Tomorrow marks the release of Shakespeare, which is a digital-only release through Comedy Central Records. And right now you can preview the album before you buy it. Ahh technology.
Earlier today, Anthony tweeted a bonus MP3 from the night where he had to address the follies of an unruly heckler who ended up having one of the best jobs a comedian could ask for in this situation.
So all that’s left for you to do is to click on some links and buy the album. It’s pretty easy to do.
Where do we start with this video? Other than it being a perfect snapshot for everything we love about early hip-hop videos, chock full of people bragging about their skills, and for good measure Hannibal Buress donning his best “WTF are these white people doing?” face.
Web video maker extraordinaire Tom McCaffrey gathered fellow “Headliners,” Rob Cantrell, Hannibal Buress, Boris Khaykin, Dan Curry, Ted Alexandro and Joe DeRosa and had them rap about what they know about. Works every time.
The song is from McCaffrey’s new album, Get Rich Or Move Back Home which hits shelves on September 21st.
