Laurie Kilmartin on parenthood, losing her father, and her new SeeSo comedy special

Comedian and writer Laurie Kilmartin is probably best known as one of the finalists on the 7th season of Last Comic Standing. She has also written 2 books and has been nominated for a Primetime Emmy award. Last year, Laurie's 83 year old father was diagnosed with cancer. She had to take time off from her dream job as a staff writer on Conan O’Brian’s late night show and flew up to visit her father in Northern California as much as she could. During the months of her father's declining health, she took to Twitter writing jokes about her experience of losing a parent to cancer.

She talks to Jesse about her new SeeSo comedy special called 45 Jokes About My Dead Dad. She gets candid about what it’s like to lose a parent and how instrumental Twitter was in coming to grips during the process.

You can find more information about how to stream her special here.

Erin Gibson and Bryan Safi on their new TV Land show Throwing Shade and how to be funny without being offensive

Erin Gibson and Bryan Safi are comedians, writers, actors, and podcast hosts. They met in 2010 as writers for Current TV, a news channel that was created by Al Gore and Al Jazeera. Erin covered feminist issues while Bryan covered the LGBTQ beat. In 2011, when Current TV closed its doors, Erin and Bryan knew that they still had more to say so they decided to start the Throwing Shade podcast hosted by Maximum Fun.

In studio with Jesse, they discuss their origin story, the differences between making podcasts and TV, and how to have a sincere and funny opinion without being offensive.

You can watch Throwing Shade on TV Land every Tuesday evening at 10:30/9:30c.

"How to Train Your Dragon 2" is getting a new gay character! Plus, being a wedding guest costs more than $500 per wedding now! It's hard to believe. As hard to believe as Gwyneth Paltrow in Seven.

MaxFun drive week was so fun, Erin recorded the whole episode with her mic turned the wrong direction! Sorry, everyone!
Rush Limbaugh gives up the fight against gay marriage while Jeremy Irons starts a weird one, and the trend of "I don't mean to be sexist, but." With special guest, Chip Pope!
Mel Gibson, No Name, Victoria Jackson and Yarn Tethers would all love it if you could find it in your hearts to donate  whatever you can to help keep Throwing Shade going for another year!

Throwing Shade #66 - LIVE in NYC

| 1 comment

Last year, Bryan and Erin put on their scarfs and headed to NYC during the hottest winter ever to do a sold out show at UCB Theater. This is that show. Well, almost. The last ten minutes was lost in an unfortuante accident involving an ice cream truck, motlotv cocktails, and a sheep farmer named Uleg.
