    Watch Steven Wright and Craig Ferguson try to out-weird each other

    While the traditional formula of a two-hander still works to this day (one plays “straight,” one plays crazy), a pair playing crazy in their own respective ways can be one of the most delightful things to watch. Paul Scheer and Rob Huebel, for example, hosting anything from their live show Crash Test at the UCB Theatre in Los Angeles to the most recent Critics’ Choice Movie Awards on VH1 are

    Comedy Matters doesn’t only talk about comics. It talks about the people who make the comedy world what it is, a wonderful place to be! Chris Mazzilli, owner of Gotham Comedy Club, is a special kind of guy and a very charitable man. I don’t think it’s any accident that there are so many charitable events at Gotham.

    Mitch Hedberg jokes still inspiring

    By Mike Blejer To this day, Mitch Hedberg is one of the most imitated comedians around. If you’ve been to more than one open mic you’ve provably seen a comic copying his style of accented, percussive speaking; sometimes good, usually terrible. I know that for my part I’ve heard a lot of comics telling bizarre one-liners they must have thought sounded Hedbergian. But what is usually missing is the strong

    Flight of the Conchords: Self-titled

    Ever since Jethro Tull beat out Metallica for the best-heavy-metal performance Grammy in 1989, the Recording Academy’s decisions have meant very little to people with half a clue about the record-making business. So it was no surprise that with a five-song EP, Flight of the Conchords — not Steven Wright — managed to snag Best Comedy Album honors last year.
