• Myq Kaplan and Micah Sherman have a pair of music videos you should probably watch

    If our review of Myq Kaplan and Micah Sherman’s new musical comedy album Please Be Seated didn’t convince you to lay your money down, perhaps a pair of super videos will. In the first, the mighty duo drop a ditty called “Bop 25,” their attempt at radio-friendly material. But if you listen reeeeeeaaaaal carefully, you just might pick up on the song’s underlying message. Also, there’s some badass dance moves!

    T.J. Miller unleashes new music video, bathes in syrup

    Comedian, and damn talented musical-type T.J. Miller went to great lengths to shoot his latest video– this one for his song “Denver,” which appears on last year’s album The Extended Play E.P. In an ode to his hometown, Miller seems to hit every corner of the city (and also bathes in syrup, which is simultaneously the grossest and most delightful thing I can think of) to bring us this slick-as-hell

    Patton Oswalt plays Tom Scharpling in new Ettes music video

    I am a huge music nerd as well as being a comedy nerd, and The Ettes are one of my favorite bands as of late. The Tennessee band is made up of Lindsay “Coco” Hames, Maria “Poni” Silver, and Jeremy “Jem” Cohen – best. nicknames. ever. They’re fun and their sound is awesome and they, apparently, have a killer sense of humor. Their newest album was just released on Aug

    Katie Goodman: I Didn’t F*ck It Up (Review)

    In her new CD, I Didn’t F*ck It Up (the asterisk is her spelling, by the way. I would’ve gone ahead and said “fuck.”), Katie Goodman proves that there is a vast difference between a “guitar act” and a musical comedian. Anybody’s who’s frequented comedy clubs over the years has seen plenty of performers take to the stage with song parodies that mix familiar tunes with sexual innuendo, singing impressionists

    Watch Donald Glover’s teaser for his new hip-hop album, “Camp”

    If there’s one form of entertainment fusion that I love, it’s the blend of music and comedy. I’m always tickled when funny folks reveal their chops on whatever musical instrument, be it Dana Carvey on the drums or Conan O’Brien on the guitar. One of the newer additions to the music-comedy circuit is Donald Glover, also known as rapper Childish Gambino. Back in May, in the midst of his IAMDONALD

    Watch Reggie Watts do his thing for a Portuguese chicken restaurant

    Reggie Watts is many things. He’s a multi-faceted musician, comedian, improviser, beat boxer, the only man who wears suspenders not ironically. He’s now a chicken restaurant spokesperson or sorts. Watts showed off his varied chops for this minute-long spot for UK-based Nando’s, a casual chain eatery which boasts flavorful Portuguese chicken seasoned with spicy (and healthy) chillies. Check the video out below. Does it make you hungry? Nando’s set up

    With tens of millions plays on YouTube, you just might have heard Australian comedy music trio Axis of Awesome hilariously deflating any number of pop music conventions. But now, the band – lead vocalist Jordan Raskopoulos, keyboardist and vocalist Benny Davis and guitarist Lee Naimo – have moved beyond viral video stars with their first American album Animal Vehicle, which Laughspin Records — a division of Laughspin.com — has proudly

    Watch musical comedian J. Chris Newberg win over “America’s Got Talent” audience

    America’s Got Talent reminds me of a coliseum in Ancient Rome, where the entire bloodthirsty audience was in attendance to see some grisly death by tiger or rhinoceros or whatever other beast happened to live in Italy at the time. They’re out for blood, not for a solid performance by a gladiator. With that in mind, J. Chris Newberg’s stand-up-and-musical performance on the program last night is doubly impressive. After
