    Tig Notaro Live in Austin (Review)

    AUSTIN – In a paradoxical municipality like Austin, Texas, where small-town mentality seems to prevail even as the city itself continues to balloon, it’s easy to see how a personality like Tig Notaro’s would sell out tickets like a scalper on Super Bowl Sunday. To begin with, Tig is excessively weird – and of course, we mean that as the highest imaginable compliment. As a stand-up, her style has long

Pitt pretty much refuses to answer most of the questions, including what losing his

    It’s been five days since Louis C.K. has taken to Twitter to message his more than 3.8 million Twitter followers.

    Neal Brennan loves Louis C.K. but says ‘Louie’ is the kale of television (Interview)

    In this vast, cacophonous digital age, television programming finds inspiration from Twitter feeds, Tumblr blogs, podcasts and YouTube channels. So, it’s oddly quaint that Sundance TV is about to launch a new series based on one page of a magazine (magazines are like books but flatter and shinier)— specifically the back page of New York magazine. On that page for the last 10 years is the Approval Matrix, a wildly
