    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.

I purposely did not use the word “funeral” because the program for the service was entitled “Going Home Services” for Patrice O’Neal. Plus “funeral” is such a sad word, and as sad

    Featured review: Daniel Tosh– "Happy Thoughts"

    Like Jim Norton and Patrice O’Neal, Sarah Silverman and Lisa Lampanelli, Daniel Tosh clearly belongs to Comics Without Borders, a cadre of comedians that fearlessly (some scolds may say tastelessly) crosses boundaries to deliver jokes to those in need…of convulsive laughter. “If I offend anybody tonight, I apologize. It’s not my intention. I’m not going to guess what your personal line of decency is. I cross my own from time

    Patrice O’Neal: Ready to challenge the mainstream

    There are few comedians more divisive than Patrice O’Neal.

But that’s about to change with his first hour-long special Elephant in the Room for Comedy Central– premiering Saturday at 10 pm EST. Things are about to get better, or worse, for Patrice– depending on whether he’s

    Uncut Patrice Oneal video interview delves deep into the comedian's psyche

    A few weeks ago, I sat down with comedian Patrice Oneal at Comix to film an episode of Punchline Magazine’s web series A Tight Five, which, as you might know, are five minute interviews with well known comedians. But to get that polished five minutes, we shoot much longer. And sometimes we think the full, uncut version of these interviews are compelling for hardcore comedy fans. That’s the case with
