  • Dan Soder on Conan, ‘She talks about death with an ease that rattles my bones’

    Dan Soder, one of our favs made his second appearance on Conan last night for another round of stand-up comedy jokery. Soder took swings at the generational gap between children and their grandparents and why he doesn’t trust 2 year olds and their technological prowess. If I follow the logic bestowed upon Dan when he’s on the YKWD podcast, he didn’t have to pull out the Russian accent, so he pretty much nailed it.

    Nikki Glaser was the guest comedian on Late Night with Seth Meyers the other night. She delivered a tight five about her recent relationship breakups, make ups, and how she gave him the impression that she was a different person.

    Byron Bowers was the guest comedian on The Pete Holmes Show, we dig Byron for a few reasons, 1) we got the chance to spend some time with him at SXSW this past March and he’s a terrific person. And 2) he’s hilarious! Who can’t related to his desire to be great? Granted, Bowers wants to be so great that he can knock it down a notch or two with non-great things, but we should all strive to so awesome things while on this planet.
