    The Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences have once again, despite the huge amount of quality stand-up released in 2013, felt it necessary to laud Kathy Griffin in the best comedy album category.

    Bob Saget will release new album ‘That’s What I’m Talkin’ About’ on July 16

    While he’s endeared himself to a new, very young generation of fans as Danny Tanner on Full House (still going strong in syndication), Bob Saget has, more importantly, become somewhat of a comedy giant to stand-up fans. His live performances, decidedly not Full House in tone, are a rapid-fire stream of stories, one-liners, audience interactions and yes, even dirty filthy songs. And all of that and more is full on

    Ask a comedian for advice, and more likely than not, you’ll get a joke. Editor Eric Spitznagel at The Believer knows this, so he and Amy Sedaris started a humor/advice column and called it “Sedaratives.” In each issue of the magazine, “Sedaratives” is taken over by a different guest “advisor” who responds to several Dear Abby-ish prompts. The column has been popular enough to warrant two collected volumes from Vintage
