• Comedian Jamie Lee makes her late night television debut on ‘Conan’ (Video)

    On the heals of her standout performance at July’s New Faces show at the Just For Laughs comedy festival in Montreal, comedian Jamie Lee recently made her late-night television debut on Conan. While in Montreal, I wrote that she was “armed with jokes ready for the smallscreen expertly interspersed with darker-side-of-life one-liners.” Although Lee was bound by the FCC on Conan, her set was anything but vanilla.

    Tig Notaro has ‘great’ cancer prognosis, Louis C.K. to release her new album

    Comedy nerds have known for weeks that comedian Tig Notaro had been diagnosed with stage-2 breast cancer. But last night she stopped by Conan and told a much wider audience about her four-month series of awful events, which involved her suffering Pneumonia, contracting an intestine-eating bacteria, grieving for her mother, who tragically died, dealing with a break-up and then learning about her cancer diagnosis. She recently went through a double

    Will Ferrell spent a lot of time on ‘Conan’ talking about many things (Videos)

    Will Ferrell stopped by Conan last night to promote The Campaign (in theaters Aug. 10) and give his opinion on like, every current event happening right now. Specifically, Russian gymnasts crying in the Olympics and Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson’s messy break up. He also talks about meeting George W. Bush back when he was governor and how the prez didn’t know who Ferrell was. There’s plenty of sass in

    Watch Nick Offerman read Tweets from young female celebrities on ‘Conan’

    In the second installment of “Nick Offerman Reads Tweets From Young Female Celebrities” on Conan, the Parks and Recreation star reads tweets from young female celebrities– BUT, he does so while doing some man work in his wood shop. It’s enough to make a young female celeb blush! Or a not-so-young female not-a-celeb blush. Or just a man blush. We’re all blushing, Nick.

    Comedian Chad Daniels will premiere comedy special tomorrow, exclusively on Laughspin (Video)

    As we told you last week, comedian Chad Daniels will release his new hour stand-up special As Is tomorrow, exclusively here on Laughspin. You’ll be hard-pressed to find another hour of comedy as well-rounded as Daniels’ latest effort. Flawlessly delivered and expertly written, Daniels remains likable, even when he’s wishing AIDS on a police officer, busting his son for his penis-related Internet searches or getting revenge on some of society’s

    Watch Marc Maron and Brody Stevens on ‘Conan’

    There were lots of laughs and self-loathing on Conan last night. Marc Maron stopped by to talk about some very appropriate-for-television topics like his theory on how auto-erotic asphyxiation came to exist and how important it is to fear the person you’re dating. Stand-up Brody Stevens did a set full of jokes about being bald and living with his sister. There’s plenty of “positive energy” to go around here. Watch

    Watch comedian Cy Amundson’s television debut on ‘Conan’

    It seems like yesterday I was at the Aspen Rooftop Comedy Festival (RIP), hanging out with talented comedians– one of which was Cy Amundson, a tall viking of a young man. He had jokes (good jokes) and an engaging stage presence– not to mention a great attitude and a tremendous work ethic. I also think I made him hug me. If I remember correctly, he was also good at that.

    Will Ferrell occupied ‘Conan’ for 12 minutes last night and you should watch it

    No doubt you know that Will Ferrell’s latest flick, the entirely Spanish-language Casa de mi Padre, is in theaters now. And that’s what brought him to Conan last night. But this was not a typical drop-in. This was an epic, 12-minute occupation. A great many things were covered, not excluding butt sex. Ferrell even shows (instead of telling) the world his best-kept secret: he’s a talented dog trainer. Check out

    The Laughspin interview with Ian Edwards

    Many comedians strive to make people from all sorts of backgrounds laugh, but an incredibly small percentage of them actually achieve that. Amongst them is the Ian Edwards. From six seasons on Punk’d to writing on Saturday Night Live to crushing it on stand-up stages everywhere to his current gig writing for the reboot of In Living Color at Fox, Edwards is making his “colorless” brand of comedy known. We

    Watch Artie Lange and Nick Di Paolo talk sports, drugs and art on Conan

    For months now Nick Di Paolo and Artie Lang have been co-headlining their own sports radio (and comedy) show for DirectTV. It’s been great to see Di Paolo helming a project he deserves and it’s been fun to see Lange clean and sober and enjoying his life. The duo stopped by Conan last night to chat about their show and its future, which includes a televised version. But Lange also

    Video: Will Triumph the Insult Comic Dog be able to recover from this life changing event?

    I feel like I say this every time I post a video starring Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, but I can’t help it if it’s true. His appearance on last night’s Conan, wherein he crashes the red carpet of the Golden Collar Awards — where dogs from television and movies are honored — will go down as yet another hysterically classic Triumph video. I don’t want to give too much

    Triumph the Insult Comic Dog wants a ‘Golden Collar’ award and you can help (Video)

    You’re probably not fully aware of what the hell the Golden Collar Awards are, so we’ll break it down for you as quickly as possible. A group called Dog News Daily, who publishes information about dogs in the arts and promotes canine actors, runs something called the Golden Collar Awards, wherein they recognize, in part, the work of dogs in film and television. This year’s awards show goes down in

    Watch comedian John Roy nail Neil Diamond and more on ‘Conan’

    At times, one can watch a stand-up set on late night TV and think, “That’s so funny. Why did I never think of that topic that way?” Many times, acute observations on society are so deftly hidden within the framework of jokes that many casual observers have no idea of the work it took to put a set like that together. John Roy is such a comic who had a
