Comedian on Comedian - Hannibal Buress | poprockcandymountain
This is by far one of my favorite interviews that Coree conducted at the Bridgetown Fest, mainly because I forgot to tell her that Hannibal is a fairly shy and reserved person when he is first getting to know you. My oversight led to one of my favorite lines of all time: "Is this what the whole interview is gonna be like?" Hannibal Buress is one of the funniest comedians I've ever seen. I don't mean one of the funniest "new up and coming comedians", I mean one of the funniest I've ever seen. We ... [Read More]

Our good friend Coree Spencer has started a series of interviews for PRCM entitled "Comedian on Comedian" in which she seeks out and summarily harasses, makes out with, or is impregnated by her fellow comedians. The series of amazing videos that I'll be posting over the next week or so are from the Bridgetown Comedy Festival in Portland. We'll begin with the man that I've had a crush on since that one show he was on that he doesn't really want to talk about a lot. [Read More]

Jon Lajoie: One comedian's scourge on pop music | Punchline Magazine
When musical comedian Jon Lajoie uploads a new video to YouTube, it's almost guaranteed to get at least a million views. So it was a no-brainer for the Canadian star to release an album — available now on iTunes — with all of his hits. Two years ago, Canadian Jon Lajoie was a virtually unknown actor, working on a TV show in Montreal. Today, he is one of the fastest-rising stars in the comedy scene, singled out by Adam McKay and Will Ferrell as one of the funniest contributors to FunnyorDie.... [Read More]

It's an interesting discussion between two old friends from "way back when" in the stand-up scene of New York and a must see for the comedy nerds that Gaffigan confesses to being. [Read More]
The Jimmy Kimmel Upfront Monologue Video - Blogger Hysteria? | TVOvermind
It is clear by watching the video, taped at the ABC Upfronts earlier this week, that Kimmel is bringing his patented self deprecating and no-holds-barred irreverent style to the event - which is designed to give advertisers the heads up on upcoming programs - and not trashing the network as some would have us believe. When you watch the video, I can virtually guarantee you that the humor in Kimmel's routine is clear. At the very worst the monologue is occasionally unfunny, however it is never ... [Read More]
NY Giants' David Diehl pokes fun at Brett Favre in comedy club debut | NJ.com
Wednesday night, as I was sitting in Comix Comedy Club in Manhattan's Meatpacking District and waiting for a sketch comedy show called "12 Angry Mascots" to begin, I was unabashedly nervous for Diehl, who was about to make his comedy debut. I had a feeling he would do well, but doing comedy is about as tough as it gets. And watching someone bomb is as difficult for me to watch as some of the most horrific sports injuries of all-time. (Which, unbeknownst to the audience, we were soon to see.) [Read More]
