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?

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.

Amy Miller is very funny and now officially recognized by Portland’s Williamette Week. Click these words for the elaborate accolades.
[A lot of lists this time of year. I’m extremely happy that some of the comedians I love are getting nods in the press. Now if only these clippings of far away success could fill the hole in my heart caused by their absence.]

FXX has canceled Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell.

[This fucking sucks.]

The hysterical Dana Gould (#SF80s) has a brand new comedy special 'I Know It's Wrong' that airs tonight on Showtime at 10PM, so set your DVRs/make plans/hijack the remote at whatever bar your at and tell everyone to shut up to watch Dana say brilliantly, undeniably funny things as he does that so very well.

Finally, Moshe Kasher (Oakland Native) is developing a series for television so we can firstly, see the life of growing up in the Bay Area with deaf Hasidic Jew parents.

See him talk about his childhood here on Conan, then let’s hope this goes to series at Showtime soon to watch a fully actualized version of all that.

Joe Starr (SF00s) Has Recently Released a Great Stand-Up Album for $5 on Bandcamp
[I’m currently on my third listen and still finding new things to love in ‘Heroic Effort’. Starr gels with my immense love of pop-culture satire (pro-wrestling, Batman, Furries acutely dissected). He’s also, a natural performer, dramatic and poised. Sure, the audio quality is kinda bad — adds to the charm — and there’s a lot of options for cheap (or free) comedy but Heroic Effort ranks high in the DIY, self-released echelon.]
