This summer is the summer that Amy Schumer might just take over the world. Not only is her new season of Inside Amy Schumer inspiring countless thought pieces on how awesome she is (which are true) but her hotly anticipated Judd Apatow movie Trainwreck is poised to make her a star.

Lewis Black, the Grammy Award-winning stand-up comedian, is one of the most prolific and popular performers working today. He is not only a stand-up comedian, but also an actor and author. He is one of a few performers to sell out multiple renowned theaters, including Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Brooks Atkinson Theatre, New York City Center, the Main Stage at the Mirage in Las Vegas and most recently, a sold-out Broadway run at the Richard Rodgers Theatre in New York City. He is a passionate performer who is a more pissed-off optimist than a mean-spirited curmudgeon. Lewis is the rare comic who can cause an audience to laugh themselves into incontinence while making compelling points about the absurdity of our world. Lewis Black came into national prominence with his appearances on The Daily Show in 1996. Read More
The gang is back and season 2 of Undateable is right around the corner. March 17th to be exact. And the cast of stand-ups is down at SXSW kicking off the The Undateable Comedy Tour in support of the show. Hailing from the mind of Bill Lawrence (Scrubs, Spin City, Cougar Town, Clone High) and Adam Sztykiel (Due Date, Made of Honor), Undateable is a comedy series about a group of close-knit friends living in Detroit, helping each other figure out their lives. One of the best parts of this series is that the cast is actually a close-knit group of friends and it shows. Their performance at the festival started off with Lawrence himself coming out on stage to greet the crowd by listing his successful past ventures. But before you get the feeling he’s boasting, he quickly shadows his accomplishment by going into a bit discussing people who lie about being happy when their friends have greater success. Lawrence was referring to Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, his co-creaters of Clone High and the guys behind Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and The Lego Movie. He then played host for the evening bringing out each cast member throughout the night. Read More
