Sorry about the week off and lack of notice, everyone. The guy that owns my house keeps telling me I have to pay rent or something, so I've been looking into getting another one of these "jobs" (before you say anything, yes, I tried running the old '...but I'm an acclaimed comedy journalist' routine by him; surprisingly ineffective) and unfortunately it got in the way of my AP duties for awhile, but I'm back, baby dolls, and with arguably my biggest guest yet. Director of films such as Wet Hot American Summer & Role Models and one of the main creative forces behind such shows as The State & Childrens Hospital, I sat down yesterday with the fantastic David Wain. So head over to my blog to...

Varying heavily from the format of recent talks, my newest "Behind the Bits" with stand-up legend Andy Kindler focuses much, much less on his career and places the spotlight on current comedy events and the state of the industry as a whole. While I'm biased, I consider this one a must-listen, even for non-comedy followers.There's not much else I can say without pointing you to the stream, so head over and give it a listen. It's lengthy, but it's the most enlightening conversation I've had with anyone in a very, very long time. Be sure to check back next week, when my guest is stand-up comic and the voice of Bob's Burgers' Gene Belcher, Eugene Mirman.

So I know it's Thursday, but a couple things got swapped around last second, and so there was a bit of a delay and change on my latest installment of Behind the Bits; things will be back to normal next Wednesday with my guest Andy Kindler. For now, though, head on over to my blog to listen to my half-hour chat with the always-hilarious podcast master Jimmy Pardo. Slight disclaimer: while the audio is far better than it was on my previous chat with Neil Campbell, there's still some kinks being worked out.

Today's Behind The Bits is a bit of a departure, because I'm releasing it as an audio interview! I also did not plan on releasing it as an audio interview at first, which is why I paid no mind to the audio quality as I was recording it. So yes, I know it does not sound great, but can we move on? My talk with former UCB Artistic Director and Comedy Bang! Bang! head writer Neil Campbell is great otherwise, so head over to my blog and focus on the positives. Fear not, though, all the kinks were sufficiently worked out in time for my talk with next week's guest, Kumail Nanjiani.

It's Wednesday morning, so I'm very excited to unveil the newest Behind The Bits installment: the second part of my talk with Paul F. Tompkins. We touch on everything here; podcasts, Rescue Dawn, mythical creatures.....death? Who knows! You'll have to read it to find out. As always, head over to my blog to check it out, and I'll see you all here next week with a great talk with one of my favorite people, Comedy Bang! Bang! TV show head writer and improviser extraordinaire Neil Campbell.
Yeah, itís more Ďwhatís a ridiculous thing this person would never do?í You know? And that, to me, is the fun. You try avoid just rambling off career highlights and quoting lines from their movies; it...

Today, I'm very excited to be kicking off a feature that is 1.) my first real jaunt into original content as a staff member, and 2.) going to be a big player as far as comedy coverage on the site goes when looking into the future. I got the chance to have the wonderful Paul F. Tompkins be the first interviewee for my column Behind The Bits, which hopes to gather an in-depth look at the world of stand-up comedy. Head over to my blog to get more of a lowdown on this segment & to read the first half of our chat, and be sure keep an eye out here every Wednesday for future installments.
You know, I actually worry about the opposite. If Iím talking about my experiences working on a movie, I...
