After nearly two months of testing the waters with the weekly round-ups and occasional news post, we here at AP.net (but mostly me) are finally ready to delve into the world of frequent and consistent comedy content. To kick it off, we're premiering a track off of comedian/podcaster Pete Holmes' new album Nice Try, The Devil.

You can stream it in the replies, and keep a look out for Nice Try, The Devil, premiering on Comedy Central this Sunday, May...

Contrary to some reports, Jeff was not on a transplant list at the time of his passing, or at any time prior to that.
