As we capped off our comedy festivities at SXSW, The Laugh Button and Gotham Comedy Club got together to produce Robert Kelly’s Nasty Show. A special one night only stand-up comedy showcase chock full of no-holds-barred uncensored comedy. Robert Kelly hosted comedians Mark Normand, Matt Braunger, Aisha Tyler, and Big Jay Oakerson. Five baller comedians being as nasty as they want to be and take on any topic they’d like. Both the 8pm and 10pm shows were incredible successes. Backstage or in the crowd, everyone had an incredible time. Don’t believe us? Here are the pictures to prove it. Also, be on the lookout for some behind-the-scenes video. Read the rest of this entry
In case you all can’t make it out here yourselves for the fun that is SXSW 2013. We figured we’d give you a look into the sights and sounds of the comedy going on in Austin. Follow us here for our Twitter and Instagram feeds to keep up with the action.
We often find ourselves in fun situations where we can offer a behind-the-scenes look at what comedians are up to and what they’re doing. With that in mind, we recently got the chance to spend an afternoon with comedian Robert Kelly.

If you were to come up with a list of what things comedian, king of the Nerdist empire, talker of the dead, and podcaster Chris Hardwick would need to include on the cover art for his upcoming DVD Mandroid, what would you put on the list?
Space and spaceships? Check. Comic books. Absolutely. Robots? Totally! Dinosaurs? We absolutely agree.
Let’s take all of these and distill it into a DVD cover? Well we don’t have to because Hardwick took care of it for us. Read the rest of this entry
Wow! I never made this connection until I started to review the new Kyle Kinane album. It only makes me love him even more. I’m way late realizing this was a thing but I now feel my life is complete and I had no idea it was empty until just a moment ago. They are the same tracklisting!
This week played host to our final live stand-up comedy show, The Laugh Button Live! We ended on a high note by hosting a night with Rich Vos and all of his friends which included Alison Forns, Dan Soder, Bonnie McFarlane, Louis Katz, and Wil Sylvince.
Vos played host as the crew took jabs at each other on and off the stage, told jokes, got personal, made people cringe and delivered a killer night of stand-up comedy. We couldn’t have thought of a better way to end a year of great live stand-up comedy shows that included a presenting Robert Kelly’s first live podcast taping, a trip to Austin, and the celebration of our one-year anniversary. The second half of the year of shows kicked off with Big Jay Oakerson and Jim Gaffigan dropping in on our show. Then we presented a book release party, put on our first ever show a the NY Comedy Festival and well, that brings us to last night. Read the rest of this entry
