What do the Beatles' "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da," the Baha Men's "Who Let The Dogs Out" and Nickelback's "Rockstar" all have in common? They are all music songs and they are all on this page. Please, let us discuss in the replies.

Ok, not really ... but Drake did appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live for a special segment of "I Witness News." He dons a beard and wig before taking to the street to talk to people about, you guessed it, Drake. He accuses himself of peeing in Baby Gap and refusing to acknowledge white sports players at the Espys, which he's hosting later this year. Full video is in the replies.

Does anyone remember that band Off By One? I was clearing out my iTunes today and came across that album. I once painted houses all summer (worst job ever by the way) to save up enough money to buy albums like this.

To complete Beyoncé's aggressive cultural takeover, there is now a soundboard based on her self-titled album from last year. It's flawless.

Vulture posted an interesting interview with The Daily Show host Jon Stewart about his tenure as a bartender at New Jersey punk club City Gardens.
There was some tremendous bands that played there, and some great shows. X did a great show. Gibby from Butthole Surfers nearly burned the place down. Anybody from Joan Jett to Agnostic Front and GBH and GWAR. You know, Black Flag and Bad Brains. Bad Brains was like the house band, they were there like every six weeks. They were amazing. The Chili Peppers. It was just an incredible and vibrant scene and there was nothing else like it.

Hello, again. For those of you who don't know, I'm Cody, I'm the comedy staff member around here. I was for a little bit of last year, until I took a bit of a sabbatical to deal with my own comedic career. But I'm back now, though, albeit in a slightly lesser manner. News posting will be slim, unless I feel like they're topics/issues that definitely need to be seen by a larger audience. Gone completely are my album reviews, which shouldn't be too missed, since I only did like five. Coming back in full force, however, are my comedian interviews. I'm making time to fit these into my schedule, because 1.) I love learning from comedians, and 2.) Their unique perspectives almost always...

Hey, everyone. I know it's been awhile since you've heard from me on the news page. I'll deal with that in the morning with some new comedy content for you all. For now, though, I felt this article was the right way to end my sabbatical. Immense social everything site reddit is having a little bit of an internal struggle between their massive default subreddit /r/funny, which is a fairly self-explanatory name (though if you look at its content, it's really not) and the subreddit /r/standupshots, which features comedians posting their own material in easy-to-read imgur format. While not one of the biggest communities on the site, /r/standupshots is one of the most dedicated, but the...

Tickets for Jimmy Pardo's annual 12-hour podcast extravaganza The Pardcast-A-Thon have gone on sale. For a measly 10 bucks, you get half a day of the Never Not Funny gang, a plethora of fantastic guests, and as always, all proceeds go to Smile Train.

At the Chicago date of the Oddball Comedy and Curiosity Festival, Dave Chappelle had quite a bit to say about the crowd he had to deal with a few days prior in Hartford, CT (which can be read about here for those of you unaware). Head to the replies for the audio.

Update: Pedro Segarra, mayor of Hartford, CT, has issued a response to Chappelle's lashings out.

A few AP users attended tonight's date of the Oddball Comedy and Curiosity Fest, at the end of which headliner Dave Chappelle had an unusual set. After about five minutes of trying to do his act per usual, repeated shouts of either praise or Chappelle's Show quotes from the crowd prompted him to say that 'you are wasting your money, I'm still getting paid.' As the shouting continued, he stopped his act, sat on the stage, and began smoking, refusing to continue until it quieted down. The audience began to turn on him, and Chappelle began saying how bad the crowd was. After about twenty-five minutes of back-and-forth with the crowd, he began reading from a book aloud on the edge of the...

Yeah, yeah, I know - another Buzzfeed list on pop-punk. You're rolling your eyes at me right now I bet. But we have good reason to post the "32 Ways To Tell You Grew Up In The Golden Age Of Pop Punk" list because we love the 28th thing listed so very much.

Sponsored by the site Made Man and hosted by comedian Paul F. Tompkins, Speakeasy is a weekly webseries that has Tompkins sit down with a friend over a drink and just chat about whatever. Head to the replies to watch this week's episode, which features guest Bill Hader (Saturday Night Live) and topics such as South Park, trying stand-up and being nominated for an Emmy.

Head to the replies to see The Daily Show fill-in host/correspondent John Oliver describing his worst stand-up set ever, which somehow managed to involve a broken bottle.
Cody Nelson on 08/22/13 - 01:36 PM
The New York Times has put together an unbelievably in-depth piece chronicling the audition process for 22 current and former Saturday Night Live cast members. For great acceptance (and rejection) stories, and to also get an idea of what goes into casting the show, take the time to give it a read.
Cody Nelson on 08/22/13 - 10:27 AM
Deepening his after-hours relationship with the network (which begun with his great series Insomniac), Comedy Central has just announced that comedian Dave Attell will be both hosting the network's first late-night uncensored stand-up show as well as premiering a new one-hour special of his own. Both projects will premiere sometime in 2014, and the press release can be found in the replies.

In addition to the initial handful of roasters announced, Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Andy Samberg (SNL, The Lonely Island) and Aziz Ansari (Parks & Recreation) will also be taking part in The Roast of James Franco. I think I speak for most of when I say this thing is really coming together.

Available in the replies or on his website, comic Dan Telfer has released his latest half-hour special Live At the Beat Kitchen for free. Also in the replies is Telfer's rationale behind giving the special away as opposed to taking after the $5 approach we've seen often recently.

The Paley Center For Media has recently released decades-old interviews with Jon Stewart (soon after the cancellation of MTV's The Jon Stewart Show) and Louis CK (during his tenure as a writer on Late Night with Conan O'Brien). Easily worth watching for fans of either comic.

One of my favorite comedy sites TheLaughButton.com has put up a cool new video feature called The Laugh Button Inquisition, which revolves around asking several comedians one single question. Nearly two dozen comedians were questioned, including Kyle Kinane, Paul F. Tompkins, Kumail Nanjiani and Pete Holmes. Head to the replies to check out a few of the videos, and hit up TLB's Youtube page for the rest. They will be released weekly throughout the rest of the year.

Comedienne and Laughspin guest columnist Cameron Esposito put together a wonderful, thought-provoking piece on being a gay comic, homophobia in comedy, and being heckled by other stand-ups. Check it out here.
For years guys would come up to me — other comics, audience members, married heterosexual audience member couples — and proposition me after shows. I would be just talking about my life — having a girlfriend, going to a movie with that girlfriend, whatever — and for some reason, that would get folks going. They’d want to talk to me about my sex life, or worse, their sex life. And the thing is, I’m not into men. Because I’m a lesbian. So I’m not into men.
Cody Nelson on 08/13/13 - 10:36 AM
Fresh off the heels of the Seth Rogen Roastmaster announcement, we have a released list of the first group of roasters taking part in the Roast of James Franco (airing this Labor Day, Sept. 2nd), and let's just say, I don't think many of you will be disappointed. More roasters (as well as talent in audience attendance) are yet to be announced.
