OUR very first Night Cap presented by The Comedy Bureau and Goorin Bros. Hatmakers went spectacular with a stellar line-up, a great, fancy looking crowd, and even got a preview write-up in LA Weekly. So, with that in mind, you wouldn’t dare want to miss the second one.
YOU’LL get to catch the fantastic comedic stylings of James Adomian, Sean Patton, Jesse Case, and more along with, just like last time, a nice hat giveaway.
Fri. Mar. 21st. Doors 8:30PM. Starts 9PM. $5 in adv., $7 at door ($6 if wearing a hat)
Goorin Bros. Melrose-7627 Melrose Ave., Los Angeles, CA
The heart of Iowa is going to get a pretty great comedy festival come Mar. 28th-30th with The Green Gravel Comedy Festival featuring Jackie Kashian, Ryan Singer, Kevin McDonald, Junior Stopka, and more.
Tickets are on sale now and we suggest that you get them ASAP if you’re planning on going (and you should be if you can).
Great NY based comedian Jacqueline Novak released her comedy album Quality Notions this week and, if only by the title, you should be reassured for a good time listening and laughing after buying it off iTunes.
If you need more convincing, watch this clever teaser for it where people try to review it with barely discussing comedy or using the word funny.
Glad to see that Amy Sedaris is joining in this series alongside Jane Krakowski in yet another solid cast in a Fox comedy pilot.
In addition to Fox’s new direction away from the pilot season model, we’re excited to see what’s to come of this and several other Fox comedy projects.
People who talk to their computer screens, record it, and just say whatever comes to their mind with no filter often say the most ludicrous things ever. Uploading their rhetoric online has resulted in a myriad of people speaking their mind when they should probably speak to someone else first.
So with that in mind, the very funny Jared Logan satirizes this fad with "Don’t You Think" where he adds a green screen and a guest in Guy Branum and comes from a place where you constantly quote your HS football coach.
With the division of FX into a drama channel and a separate comedy channel at FXx, the genre lines of a series in regards to which channel it should go to can be blurred.
The upcoming TV adaptation of Fargo will premiere on Apr. 15th on FX, but don’t worry about their being a possible absence of that Coen Brothers (who are EPs on the series) style of dark humor being present.
Just watch these “steak" and "shopping cart" promos for proof.

Very few shows get to say that they’re an award winning show and that they’ve just got picked up for a second season, but that’s the case for Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
You got to be pretty damn good for that happen, so maybe you should give it a watch.
