The creep factor is high on this one, as is the hilarity. Tonight on Inside Amy Schumer the sketch, “Four Handed Massage” puts Amy in a massage parlor with two creepy individuals played by comedians Robert Kelly and Jim Norton. Creepy! I know! It’s a simple premise that they’re really good at creeping the sh*t out of us with.
Earlier this week we had the chance to roll out to the Comedy Cellar at the Village Underground for a live Come to Papa taping. For those that don’t know Come To Papa is a radio show on SiriusXM hosted by comedian Tom Papa who played host to a variety hour radio show. The night featured radio sketches voiced by comedians like Robert Kelly, Kurt Metzger, William Stephenshon, Dan Soder, and Cynthia Koury. Comedian Rick Crom was the announcer for the olde tyme radio show. In between sketches Mike Vecchione, Robert Kelly, and Greer Barnes did stand-up sets and a jazz trio provided the soundtrack for the evening. Read More
Last October, The Laugh Button presented the book release party for the Robert Kelly, Joe DeRosa, and Bill Burr book, Cheat: A Man’s Guide to Infidelity. We gathered with a few hundred people for screening of the short film and some stand-up comedians told stand-up and shared their own cheat stories from the book.
On hand that night was Kelly Fastuca (from Robert Kelly’s YKWD Podcast) and Riotcast TV to document the night and get some interviews from comedians who were performing that night and others who were just around to join in on the fun.
It took a while to get this clip to you because of that a**hole Hurricane Sandy. The videographer who was on hand that night with Fastuca suffered a series of setbacks from the storm that hit just days after the night. The footage/clips were thought to be lost for a while, but later they were recovered, re-formatted, and put into the hands of a new editor and here we are a few months later bringing it to you.

A few weeks ago we headed down to Austin, Texas for the SXSW Festival. In the middle of catching a ton of comedy events we threw our own comedy showcase which Robert Kelly hosted Matt Braunger, Big Jay Oakerson, Mark Normand, and Aisha Tyler for a Nasty Show!
Before the night started we sent a special correspondent, Robert Kelly onto the floor of the Interactive trade show at the festival to talk to the vendors on the floor. Robert is a fan of all things tech and hosts a tech talk segment on his You Know What Dude? podcast. So we thought no better person to go and talk to these people than someone that loves it.
We might be biased but giving Robert Kelly a microphone and setting him loose on a technology floor might be one of the more inspired ideas we’ve had lately. Read More
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 More
Tuesday was the big day for us Laugh Buttoneers, as we teamed up with Gotham Comedy Club and SXSW Comedy to produce a stand-up comedy showcase of our own. Robert Kelly would host two back-to-back shows of “The Nasty Show” featuring comedians that were on hand to deliver some of their nastiest and crudest material. In other words, downright hilarity ensued.
The day began with us meeting up with Robert Kelly on the floor of the festival’s convention center to go out, see what’s going on with new technology, and see what’s going on during interactive. The floor didn’t know what was ready for it as Kelly ran through the floor like a kid in a candy store talking to people about the latest in gadgetry. We won’t reveal all of the spoilers but headphones were tried on, cell phone cases were played with, and women on computers were argued with. Read More
Want a teaser clip from what happened when we hit the tech conference floor of SXSW with Robert Kelly? Here you go. More to come.
Monday brought on different type of comedy fun as we spent the first part of our day hanging out with comedians and interviewing them while at Recess Bar where a few interviews turned into hours spent playing Golden Tee, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Ms. Pac-Man, and SkeeBall.
We set up shop at the bar around noon and local Austin comedian Ramin Nazer was gracious enough to perform the on camera interviews for us. First up was a handful of great UCB players like Connor Ratliff, Shannon O’Neill, Keith Haskel, and Riley Soloner who stopped by for some early conversation about improv. After talking to us they had to head over to their own showcase to bid them adieu. Read More
