While many a fantastic band has graced the stage at Jack White’s Third Man Records, only a handful of comedians can say the same.
The brilliant Rory Scovel is one of that handful that’s gotten to perform at Third Man Records and record a performance to be released on vinyl (the other two are Reggie Watts and Neil Hamburger).
Thus, you can and should pre-order/buy Rory Scovel: Live at Third Man Records now (available Tues. Dec. 17th)
The HFPA just announced the nominations for next year’s Golden Globes Awards that, for comedy, includes Her, Wolf of Wall Street, Girls, New Girl, Modern Family, Inside Llewyn Davis, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Enough Said, Frances Ha, Veep, Parks and Recreation, and more.
Some of those nominees blur the lines for comedy/drama, but it’s even more surprising that decidedly more dramatic leaning films like American Hustle, Before Midnight, and August: Osage County got nominated in the comedy or musical category.
What’s with Lake Bell’s In a World, a straight comedy, not getting any recognition versus films that are mostly dramatic?

More luxurious cars, more of Seinfeld’s friends, and more of an insider’s look to successful comedians hanging out is coming very soon in the 3rd season of the award winning web series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.
New episodes are slated to come out early next month.
Jimmy Kimmel Live gave a sneak peak of the new season of Billy On The Street that doesn’t premiere until March.
Thankfully, aggressively quizzing people with Christmas carols along with Amy Poehler is pretty amazing so it’ll kill some to most of the time until the premiere. Watch the clip here.
Apparently, Fred Armisen will be playing a superhero named Ambiance Man and Jack Black will be his complimentary villain Unidentifiable Odor. All of this is for a web series through the upcoming YouTube Channel of MOCA (Museum Of Contemporary Art) in LA.
So, we’ll have to wait until next Friday to see what this is exactly, but we’re pretty into it without a teaser or set photos.
The great Rob Reiner is preparing to do a TV series that could be just another procedural/detective thriller type show save for the fact that Rob Reiner is producing and directing it.
