  • Joe Mande releases his comedy mixtape ‘Bitchface’ today

    For his album debut, Joe Mande is releasing a new kind of comedy album, a mixtape of sorts entitled Bitchface. If the name alone is not enough to entice you, here’s the rundown. Not limited to stand-up, the mixtape will also feature voicemail messages from his Parks & Recreation boss Amy Poehler and The RZA, and guest appearances by Fabolous, NBA star Roy Hibbert, Aziz Ansari, Nick Kroll, Jenny Slate and more. Intermixed in the hour’s worth of stand-up on the album are mid-joke voiceovers from Mande himself, and a few Top 40 radio-esque effects. Definitely not your typical comedy album, that’s for sure.

    In addition, Mande will be promoting his mixtape on a 13 city tour, including six dates with Aziz Ansari and the Moontower Comedy Festival. Read More

    ‘Broad City’ postpones it’s live tour for the best reason

    Broad CityStars and co-creators Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer have been performing a live version of their show, Broad City, at UCB Chelsea in New York (where the pair first met taking improv classes) long before their show aired on Comedy Central. The pair were set to bring their live show on the road for an 18 city tour across the US this month, however, the pair have announced this week (via various social media accounts) that they have to postpone the tour til the Fall.

    But this doesn’t come without good reason. Actually, they have a very good excuse. The best excuse really: prepping for Broad City‘s second season.

    Initially revealed by executive producer Amy Poehler on the debut episode of Late Night with Seth Meyers, the runaway hit was picked up by Comedy Central for another ten episode season. Season one will wrap up at the end of March, but preparations for next season are already on the way. Jacobson and Glazer released a video announcement on YouTube this week revealing writing for season two starts this Monday. Read More

    Jimmy Fallon to take his (solo) show on the road

    This October and December, Jimmy Fallon will take the US by storm. Ok, maybe that’s a little strong, but he will be going on an awesome tour called “Jimmy Fallon’s Clean Cut Comedy Tour.” Fallon will be hitting six lucky cities, St. Louis, Atlanta, Tampa, Seattle, Los Angeles, and Denver.

    Joining Fallon on stage will be Julian McCullough, Nate Bargatze, and Nick Thune. It looks like a great show, if you’re in any of these cities, you need to check this show out. It could be the last chance you’ll get to see Fallon before he becomes the host of The Tonight Show. That would be like being able to say you got to see Steve Allen back in ’53, or Johnny Carson back in ’61. Or Conan O’ – er, never mind.

    Doug Stanhope’s ‘Sh*t Town Comedy Tour’ is coming to a crappy town near you

    Stanhope Shit Town TourWell, if it ends up being a sh*t show, you cannot say Doug Stahope didn’t warn you.

    The comedian, who has such diehard fans, they’ll probably follow him to the most remote parts of the country to see him. Beginning on Tuesday, September 17th Doug and comedian Junior Stopka are hitting the road, in markets that you might not know, hence the naming of the tour the “Sh*t Town Tour.”* It’s a bit reminiscent of Bill Hicks’ Flying Saucer Tour.

    Stanhope will hit 18 markets in total and set up a fun poll on his website allowing fans to vote on what town on the tour they believe to be the sh*ttiest of towns. What do they win? No clue. Toilet brush perhaps?

    In addition to it being the launch of his new tour. September 17th is the same day as the release of his new special, Beer Hall Putsch. Which he recorded this past April at Dante’s in Portland. Read More

    Mr. Show fans rejoice! It may not be exactly a reunion tour, but the classic sketch comedy show’s creators Bob Odenkirk and David Cross have announced plans for a mini-tour this September (their first national tour together since 2002). And as an added bonus, none other than comedian and fellow Mr. Show cohort Brian Posehn will also be appearing on the tour.

    The trek will find the three performing in five cities this September (including New York, Boston and San Francisco), with an additional stop at the Tenacious D festival in October. The shows are in support of the three’s new book, Hollywood Said No!, a collection of rejected screenplays and sketches they wrote together. According to Odenkirk’s Twitter account, the tour will feature stand-up sets from all three as well as sketch comedy. While it’s a shame that it’s only a handful of dates, we’re just excited to get the chance to see all three on the same stage again. And who knows, maybe more will come considering a certain show’s 20th anniversary is just a few years away.
