Yay! Congrats, Margaret!

[Coincidently, I’ve learned a lot from Margaret Cho. I also know she’s a down ass lady. Can’t wait to see this project materialize.]

[Interesting! Production company announcements are a little too “inside” for this lowly culture blog but the Berkeley Boys of The Lonely Island are always a point of intrigue. Given their bottom-to-top, Channel101-to-SNL-to-movies-to-television-to-music-and-more portfolio of excellence, the expectations are extremely high. It’s funny, a decade ago Fox shot down Awesometown. Now, they’re in bed with the princes of weirdness. Cool beans.]

Here’s a Small Taste of Patton Oswalt’s Tragedy Plus Comedy Equals Time

thecomedybureau:

Patton Oswalt (SF90s)'s latest comedy special Tragedy Plus Comedy Equals Time is coming to Epix on Jan. 17th. It’s been a few years since Finest Hour, which is why we’re excited for this to come out and also wonder the other forms of that comedy equation (i.e. Time Minus Comedy Equals Tragedy, Tragedy Minus Time Plus Comedy Equals Zero, etc. etc.)

For now, just watch this preview on what the state flag of Florida should be.

[The world is always enriched by Patton Oswalt’s brilliance. I’m always late to watching comedy specials but I’m going to make sure to seek this one out.]

Courting Sketchfest: 2014 Schedule Official Released, All Tickets On Sale Sunday (12/15) [42 Days Left]
[You’re definitely gonna need an afternoon disco nap, a membership with Uber or Lyft, a source of stimulants that doesn’t make you too annoying, and an emergency crash pad to truly enjoy the silly Sketchfest siege. A meta-game emerges as special-guest-subtext and conflicts of adoration splay across SF’s 7x7; big names, high stakes, bragging rights (I saw so and so, for a handful of peanuts!), and the infinitely wondrous after-parties will be froth with intrigue. We should really have an app for all this, and a cloning system with hive mind memory aggregation, and medicinal Adderall.]

Courting Sketchfest: The 13th Annual SF Sketchfest Line-Up Has Officially Dropped [44 Days Left]
[It happens every year. A panic of anxiety, a ripple of elation, a tight-lipped embargo, and then, suddenly, a deluge of unparalleled awesome! There’s far too much to succinctly surmise such titan totality (scheduling will be announced in three days), so for the next month we will highlight some choice, fresh cuts of the entertainment mastodon known as SF Sketchfest 2014.]

W. Kamau Bell is getting set to host his 2nd time on TV with this upcoming WGA East Awards. Let’s keep Kamau going with a 3rd, 4th, and 5th time, and so on. 

Also, in remembering Jonathan Ames hosting last year’s WGA Awards, does the WGA like having hosts who just got their shows cancelled?

thecomedybureau:

Brent Weinbach's hilarious video Gangster Party Line, which has gone viral, uses a real phone number, which so many people call and have left “some shit talkin” voicemails. There are thousands upon thousands of voicemails that they’re going through to highlight the best, some of which are already posted on the site at the link, gangsterpartyline.com.

On occasion, “someone” will answer the phone and talk some shit like we saw last night at Underbelly, making for one of the funniest things we’ve seen all year.
