This spring, Dave Ross is coming to a city near you to perform stand-up. Seriously, he’s playing 42 different cities. You’re probably near one of them, so you’ll probably have a chance to see him from April through to the end of May and we highly recommend doing that because Dave is pretty damn funny.
For you Angelenos, you’ll be happy to know he’s also headlining the Hollywood Improv at the end of it.
As Jimmy Fallon loves games and Billy Eichner was a guest last night on The Tonight Show, it was the perfect opportunity for Jimmy to do a Tonight Show version of Billy on the Street.
Thus, they did Billy in the Audience, complete with all the running and screaming you’ve come to know and love. Don’t forget that season 3 of Billy on the Street premieres tonight on Fuse at 11PM.
Key & Peele has seemingly filled that staple sketch show that Comedy Central has been looking for after Chappelle’s Show came to an abrupt end. They’ve hit a nice intersection in being wildly popular online, but as well as a TV series.
So, very wisely, Comedy Central is giving them an actual full season order of 22 episodes and is working on an animated spin-off of Vandaveon & Mike.

John Kennedy Toole's novel A Confederacy of Dunces has been regarded as a humor classic for a long time, so you can imagine that adaptations of it in various forms such as a movie have been considered.
Now, producers from Shelton Street Theatrical now intend to make a stage production of A Confederacy of Dunces in the not so distant future. We can only hope that it becomes a big hit and makes its way West to LA.
Kill Rock Stars has just come out with their second comedy album release in Hari Kondabolu's Waiting For 2042, which makes it, for us, two in a row of smart comedy releases.
You can a physical CD or a digital download of Waiting For 2042 today at the link, which we recommend you do.
Mike Judge's Silicon Valley doesn’t even premiere until next month and the executive producer Alec Berg already has an overall deal with HBO.
Of course, he’s written/directed/produced at Curb Your Enthusiasm as more cache for this deal, but we think that this is still a good sign that you should watch Silicon Valley.
Michael Busch, JC Coccoli, and Nacho Punch brings what should be a version of QVC or HSN where all the products are being-stuck-up-your-butt-friendly.
As juvenile as the idea may sound to you, it is undoubtedly way better and funnier than talking about thread count for 15 minutes on live TV. Watch it here.
In a reboot of the original landmark Chevy Chase vehicle, Jason Sudeikis picks up the role of Fletch. We had no idea that a new Fletch was in the works, but it’s not surprising that Hollywood would be doing another remake.
Still, with that said, Sudeikis might do well for Fletch Won.
No matter what we say here, we’re sure you’re going to watch President Barack Obama be a guest on Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis. No, this isn’t a hoax like HUVr.
It might delight you to know that beyond the President doing an episode of a web series opposite Galifianakis, Obama is pretty great in ribbing Zach while plugging Healthcare.gov.
Give it a watch right now.
