  • Baron Vaughn released his debut album last week on AST Records. It's called "Raised by Cable".
  • The Sklar Brothers will be releasing their third CD, "Hendersons and Daughters", on Sept. 13th.
  • Eugene Mirman is hosting a science fair. The event will precede a taping of StarTalk with Neil deGrasse Tyson and Kristen Schaal and the whole evening will be the kickoff event for Mirman's annual comedy festival. It's going down on the 15th at the Bell House in Brooklyn and Mirman is currently seeking out interesting inventions to display. So if you're a comedy fan and you've also created a unique and fascinating scientific-y thing that you can easily transport to Park Slope by Thursday . . . well, first, you are awesome. Second, you should probably drop Mirman a line.
  • And finally, Charlyne Yi and Fred Armisen will appear in an upcoming episode of "Yo Gabba Gabba"! I'm guessing they get to keep the hats.

We had a really fun show last month as part of San Francisco Sketchfest, thanks to everyone who came out, our great performers and interview guests, Sketchfest and the Eureka Theatre. If you missed it, it's all here for you in convenient podcast form.

Baron Vaughn is a standup comedian who splits his time between LA and NYC. You can also see him on the USA series "Fairly Legal".

Kasper Hauser is, of course, one of our favorite sketch groups and an important part of the San Francisco comedy scene. You can subscribe to The Kasper Hauser Podcast on our site to hear more from them.

We also have a chat with Steve Dildarian, creator of the HBO series The Life and Times of Tim (you might know several of his Superbowl Budweiser spots, among many other commercials, created in his former life as an ad man). (Transcript)

We brought on the very funny writer, actor, and director Bobcat Goldthwait to talk about his latest directorial effort, World's Greatest Dad, why he quit standup comedy, and setting the record straight on some of the past antics. (Transcript)

And, in case that wasn't enough -- we had a great musical set from singer-songwriter John Vanderslice, whose new album White Wilderness is out now (go buy it!).
