Melinda Hill has been doing a web series in tandem with the longstanding live comedy show What’s Up Tiger Lily? that she’s a part of, called All Growz Up. In an alley where Tiger Lily takes place, Hill asks some of the funniest people around that do the show what they wanted to do when they grow up like Kyle Kinane, Jon Dore, Maria Bamford, and more.
When asked, the hysterical Karen Kilgariff ends up giving some solid advice to people who have the dream of making it in comedy. Watch it here.
Comedian Hasan Minhaj is Dave’s guest this week! They talk about growing up with immigrant parents, and as a first-generation American, what it takes to get your parents to open up, and what happens once they do. Hasan and Dave love each other. They hugged.
This is a baker’s dozen of some of my favorite clips from Totally Biased. When we did these pieces, I truly felt like we were making the kind of TV that I wanted to see. Obviously everybody on the show isn’t visibly represented or mentioned here but they all contributed jokes and ideas to the pieces on this this list. (Get their names on IMDB.) And this isn’t even close to everything that I loved on the show, but as far as I know, there’s no such thing as a baker’s 37.
[We’re still reeling from the cancelation of “Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell”. It wasn’t just entertainment bent on social justice (that shit that I like), it was a beacon of hope of being trusted with a show built upon a long-forged identity and voice. It’ll be interesting to see where everything falls for the largely Bay Area crew, but in the meantime, the captain of the ship has given a behind-the-scenes retrospective on some of his ultra-biased favorite moments.]
by fallen promotions wigg, CollyD420 (1994-2013) [EDITOR NOTE/ IN MEMORIAM: CollyD420 turned in this article on the morning of Oct 29, 2013. Later that afternoon he informed me that he was planning to hand me a complete feature after as soon as he came back from the dispensary. CollyD420 never returned. To honor the blunted memory of WXA’s most noided member, I swore to myself I would wait until his return to publish what I now presume to be his final document. THAT SAID: I’m rrrreally trying to publish an entry every day on this fucking thing and the exhaustive Poison The Well tribute post I’m working on is taking seriasly forever. And so kiddies, here you have it… CollyD’s last beef. Enjoy.
[Postmodern Apocalypse hits extremely close and incredibly loud in this punx piece on a recent San Francisco comedy controversy.]
The Independent Spirit Awards has had quite the decidedly more bold (and often times more fun) choices for host over the years.
John Waters, Sarah Silverman, Steve Coogan, Joel McHale, Seth Rogen, and more have taken the Spirit Awards stage as the host and we can’t wait to see what Patton Oswalt(SF90s) will do in joining their ranks.
