I watched Wayne's World recently. Man, that's a fucking hilarious movie.

Podcast: Entertaining with Amy Sedaris and Jimmy Carr

Show: 
Bullseye

On this week's show, we entertain two wonderful (and entertaining) guests.

Jimmy Carr is one of the UK's most popular standup comics. Here in the US, he's hosted the game show Distraction on Comedy Central and appeared on Late Night and The Tonight Show. His new book, written with his long-time friend Lucy Greeves, is "Only Joking: What's So Funny About Making People Laugh?"

Then we talk with Amy Sedaris. She's a rabbit lover and taxidermied squirrel owner, as well as the author of "I Like You: Hospitality Under the Influence." The book provides domestic advice of many types, ranging from recipes to costumes to how to make fake food out of felt.

Please share your thoughts on the show in the comments section!

Andy Barker: PI

| 4 comments

NBC is previewing four full episodes of Andy Barker: PI, their new series with Andy Richter (and Arrested Development's Tony Hale).

I watched one. It didn't make a huge impression on me, but pilots rarely do. The bad news is that it's grabbing 30 Rock's timeslot... and with Scrubs, My Name is Earl and The Office looking pretty secure, it may be one or the other.

Holy cow!

Larry David is set to take on Alan Partridge in a battle to the death!

(Or at least, Steve Coogan's going to be on Curb next season.)

Guests: 
Zach Galifianakis

Zach Galifianakis is a stand-up comedian, best known for his piano-playing and one-liners. He's also an actor, and was a regular on the series Tru Calling. Really. Most recently, he was seen in the Comedy Central series Dog Bites Man and The Comedians of Comedy.

We talk with Zach about his short-lived but critically beloved VH1 talk show, "Late World with Zach," the curious arc of his career, and why he enjoy enacting a descent into madness on stage.

Iron Comic in LA Friday, Kasper Hauser in SF Tonight!

| 0 comments

"Iron Comic," a show in which comedians are must deliver material only on a specific subject (a "secret ingredient"), has been burning up San Francisco for quite some time. Word filtered to me that it was coming to LA (and bringing Brent Weinbach and Maria Bamford with it), and I hopped on board. The Sound of Young America is proud to be a sponsor of the show, which is Friday night (3/9) at the M Bar in LA.

The show was so hot in San Francisco, it merited a profile in the Chronicle. Anything that gets Brent Weinbach holding a meat tenderizer into the MSM is something I support enthusiastically.

And hey -- don't forget San Franciscans... Kasper Hauser are reading at Modern Times on Valencia Street tonight at 7PM. Go, buy a Skymaul, and hear from SkyMaul CEO Jerry Pondo.
