NBC has picked up a multi-camera sitcom from stand-up and Saturday Night Live writer John Mulaney.  Seth Meyers said it best via Twitter; this is “great news for people who like funny things.”

Huffington Post Comedy did some 30 Rock research to bring us Liz Lemon’s Life Lessons for Ladies.

Splitsider asked comedy bookers in New York and Los Angeles to help them rank the Top 10 Up-and-Coming Comedians on Each Coast  (former Philadelphia comedian Josh Rabinowitz is listed at number eight in New York, congrats, Josh!)

The AV Club started their new series SketcHistory this week with a breakdown of “Dalai Lama” and “Monk Academy,” from Mr. Show’s season four episode “It’s Perfectly Understandishable”. The new series promises to “get the story behind some of our favorite comedy sketches from the people who made them.”

Have you ever wondered what some comedy superstars were doing when they hit the quarter-century mark? Splitsider compiled this list of 50 comedians at age 25.

Paul F. Tompkins has started to release clips from his live show at Largo on his website. The first features Maya Rudolph getting a visit from her future son.
