When you're watching Natasha Leggero's half-hour Comedy Central Presents tonight (or later), and thinking what a classy stand-up comedian she is, just remember that this is how she and her comedy boyfriend Duncan Trussell get romantic.
Definitely not safe for work. Roll it.
Perhaps you have read something on this site previously about Comedy Boot Camps? Well, comedians Duncan Trussell and Natasha Leggero decided to offer their own response, via their new weekly podcast, The Lavender Hour.
Awaiting a reply from Kyle Cease in 3...2...1...
There is a new trailer for HBO's collaboration with Funny or Die went online today, and the way this stuff sneaks out in small doses really just makes you ramp up your anticipation for it. Well, if you're like me and like funny things, anyhow.
We already know that one of the shorts in the HBO/FoD series has met with wider approval, as Drunk History: Douglass & Lincoln, featuring Will Ferrell and Don Cheadle re-enacting the Illinois Senate debates as retold through the drunken commentary of Jen Kirkman, won the 2010 Sundance Film Festival Jury Prize for Short Filmmaking. The Sundance guide also reveals another new Drunk History installment on the way with comedian Duncan Trussell getting drunk and talking about Tesla and Edison (with John C. Reilly and Crispin Glover?).
But what else is there? Watch the trailer closely and you'll see lots of hints. Roll it!
Are these the names you were looking for? The 2009 Montreal Just For Laughs comedy festival presents the "New Faces" for the industry to discover, fawn over and scrutinize. It looks to be a very strong class, just from the faces and names I already have come to discover, fawn over and scrutinize right here on The Comic's Comic.
So here they are! The New Faces perform in two groups tonight, Wednesday and Thursday -- this year at the Cabaret Juste Pour Rire (much closer to the rest of the action than the far-out Kola Note). Send your wishes of well to the following comedians...photos and links after the jump!
