Making history funny-one drink at a time.
On Thursday night, Los Angeles comedians Erin Gibson and Bryan Safi visited the Oberon stage in Cambridge as part of their East Coast Throwing Shade Live tour. Like any good touring comics, these L.A.-by-way-of-Texaners made sure to include plenty of local humor, from Gibson describing her disappointment at the lack of women statues in Boston Common (“I did see one statue of a woman, but she was killed for being a Quaker”), to Safi’s take on Faneuil Hall (“Nothing moves [...]
Not content with creating a show about nothing, Jerry Seinfeld has now invaded the interwebs with webisodes about nothing. As a fan of neither cars or coffee (unless it’s iced, of course!) Seinfeld’s latest foray into the public eye, Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee, is an endearing and honest internet show nonetheless that is about exactly what the name suggests: Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee. Made for the short attention-span audience, each episode lasts anywhere from 11 to 18 minutes [...]

But the simple fact remains that, while karaoke has gained a lot [...]
If you haven’t been on the internet lately — understandable, as it’s as much a barren wasteland of lost souls and vitriol-spewing keyboard activists as it is an information superhighway and social facilitator these days — let me catch you up to speed. The web, torn asunder last week by President Obama saying stuff and Beyonce not singing stuff, was once again divided into two very different factions over a couple of news items that happened to go viral. Now, [...]
It was 10 years ago this week that “Chappelle’s Show” debuted on Comedy Central. Let’s take a look back at one of the most important comedies of our time.

In today’s Blerd Briefs: Lil Wayne topples a chart record, The Beatles arrive on vinyl, and…the “Always Sunny” cast changes?
