Comedy Around the Web, Vol. 25

The story of the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater and their practice of not paying performers has continued to get coverage. This week the New York Times covered the issue with this article in which they talk to comedians Chris Gethard, Matt Besser, and Nick Turner.

Writer/Comedian/Former editor of WitOut Luke Giordano wrote this excellent piece on the tendency he (and other artists) have to compare themselves to their peers and the relationship between success and hard work for his website Everything You Like is Stupid.

The new David Cross comedy It’s a Disaster  has been released as a series of six-second clips via Vine as an experiment in social media marketing. The full film will be released through Video on Demand on March 5.

Anthony Jeselnik’s new Comedy Central show The Jeselnik Offensive, in which he and a panel of comedians joke about current events and pop culture topics, debuted this week. You can watch the first seven minutes of the episode online.

Comedian and Twitter darling Rob Delaney was featured on Jimmy Kimmel Live this week. First, in a segment called “Old People Read Rob Delaney’s Tweets” and later performing a stand-up set.

Splitsider put together this list of 57 books every comedy fan must read.

Watch New York-based stand-up comedian (and frequent Philly performer) Mark Normand make his late-night television debut on Conan.

If you have a free hour, you can watch Dan Harmon talk about himself and his process in creating Community at CommuniCon.

I won’t lie – I’m a little worried at how much I agree with Bro Bible’s list of “13 Hilarious Movies that Prove Our Review System is Broken”.

Andy Samberg talks on Conan about one of his favorite unaired SNL sketches.

 

Comedy Around the Web, Vol. 23

Check out this document full of complains to the FCC about Saturday Night Live between 2008 – 2012. Although none of them say “it was better when I was younger” one does flat out complain that the show is “not funny”.

A new Monty Python movie has been announced in which the Pythons will be playing aliens who grant wishes to humans. Robin WIlliams is reported to join the cast as the voice of a talking dog. No kidding.

Splitsider took on the enormous task of creating this guide to New York City’s comedy scene.

Funny or Die produced this 20th anniversary video of The Adventures of Pete & Pete.

IFC just released this short teaser for their new show Maronbased on and starring comedian Marc Maron.

In this interview Dan Harmon talks about his career, and what he would have done with the fourth season of Community if he were still in charge.

The Laugh Button picked their top five funniest Super Bowl commercials.

Not included in their list was this ad for Old Milwaukee starring Will Ferrell. The company only ran the ad in three small markets – but now it’s all over the internet. Great idea!
