• The Laughspin interview with T.J. Miller

    Perhaps best known for his vomit-inducing camerawork in Cloverfield, T.J. Miller has been acting and doing comedy for almost as long as he’s been able to legally own a gun. He’s recently appeared in She’s Out of Your League and Yogi Bear, and his first one-hour stand-up comedy special is set to hit Comedy Central hour on Nov. 11. And somehow, in the midst of all that, T.J. has managed

    Amy Schumer: Cutting

    Amy Schumer is the kind of woman who would probably smile and maybe give you a kiss on the cheek right before kicking you in the nuts. Then she’d apologize and buy you a drink, but it wouldn’t be an expensive drink, and she wouldn’t really be sorry. That’s the flavor of Schumer’s debut album Cutting, a hysterical waltz through Amy’s charmingly filthy head. If you think I’ve misrepresented her,

    Review: Amy Schumer’s “Cutting”

    Louis Katz: If These Balls Could Talk

    Halfway through If These Balls Could Talk (which, incidentally, is probably the most aptly-titled comedy album of the year), Louis Katz offers an apology: “I’m sorry I talk about sex so much.” It is a lie. He is not sorry, not even slightly. And if you’re in the mood for a delightfully irreverent trip straight into the gutter, you won’t be sorry, either. Katz maintains a fast and self-assured delivery

    Dylan Brody: A Twist of Wit

    It’s not every comedy album that opens with an elaborate palindrome. But then, Dylan Brody is not everybody’s comedian. His third album, A Twist of the Wit, is a dense journey into the mind of self-loathing neurotic (his words, not mine) who knows more words than almost everyone and who occasionally pretends not to understand English just to irritate new neighbors. Brody very accurately describes his stories as ‘lengthy and

    Featured review: Jim Norton– Despicable

    Release date: March 8 In case you don’t know, Jim Norton is what George Carlin would have been had Carlin not been such a sweet and sensitive guy. On his aptly-titled third album Despicable – over half of the track titles (“Penguins are Assholes,” “Ron Jeremey’s Giant Cock,” “A Pile of Pussy”) would be unprintable in a mainstream publication – Norton gives his fans exactly the kind of abrasive, vulgar

    Jesse Joyce: Pro Joyce

    Jesse Joyce doesn’t do cocaine. It’s not his fault that he has ‘a look and demeanor that seems to imply I do a lot of blow.’ But his jittery, rapid-fire delivery, coupled with a keen pair of ‘enormous coke eyes,’ helps Joyce deliver big on his debut album, Pro Joyce. Joyce, a well-established roast writer who frequently opened for Greg Giraldo, pairs a sharp wit with precisely the right amount
