Cool shit from Pete Holmes, Rachel Feinstein and Standup Planet
If you want to get in on the ground floor of the comedy superstars of tomorrow, this week on late night was a good place to start.
And of course, nobody missed it, but David Letterman announced his retirement this week.
Awesome shit from Kroll Show, Fahim Anwar and The Pete Holmes Show
Great videos from Josh Gondelman for Last Week Tonight and new web series Littlefinger Lately
Oh man, Chelsea Handler has had her guns blazing lately! I don't know if she's piping up to promote her upcoming tour or someone told her "okay, go ahead and speak your mind again" but it's fun.
I miss Roast Battle, guys. And I knew this week's Joe Dosch v Nate Hurd battle was going to be a great one. They are both smart and quick-witted and don't have any of that "I want everyone to think I'm a nice guy" thing that can hold back other great writers. I'm told we're only going to get one clip from each show online now (You get big and you forget the little people, that's fine), so here's your joke of the night. Though it should be obvious from the joke, it might help you to know going in that Joe is gay and Nate is not. Enjoy.
And I'll finish with two clips from The Pete Holmes Show. One's from before this past week, but I missed it in the move. new Material Seinfeld. Of course.
I'm also throwing in this recent monologue because I like how much more comfortable and Pete-y Pete seems now.
Aaah, we all like a good heckler story. And by "like" I mean "cringe even when the comedian 'wins'" And this is a GREAT one. There's some weird kind of synergy between professional wrestling and comedy, but with Grant Lyon, this one went a little off the rails.
And this morning Chelsea Handler wrote a great response to being stuck in parentheses in a survey of Late Night Television.
