    Review: New ‘Believer’ book with Sedaris, C.K., Oswalt and more, gives life to old tradition

    Ask a comedian for advice, and more likely than not, you’ll get a joke. Editor Eric Spitznagel at The Believer knows this, so he and Amy Sedaris started a humor/advice column and called it “Sedaratives.” In each issue of the magazine, “Sedaratives” is taken over by a different guest “advisor” who responds to several Dear Abby-ish prompts.

    Watch Zach Galifianakis talk Puss In Boots: “Dennis Rodman wrote Humpty Dumpty”

    Tonight, the animated comedy flick Puss in Boots opens nationwide. And I just might go see it. There’s two reasons for this. The first is that I totally like sitting in a dark room drinking watered-down Diet Coke from a bucket. The other reason is that my nearly three-year-old son has not been handling the birth of his new brother all too well. So, the wife and I were thinking

    Eleven comedy web shows that should be television shows

    When it comes to developing comedy show for television, with the exception of Louie, there is hardly any unilateral decision making that allows for something that is “just good” to be on the air. Demographics, built-in markets, censors, programming and more unfortunately factor into what usually makes it to the air.
