Louis CK tweets in support of Daniel Tosh.
Another big step towards cutting out the middle man, as Laughspin announces the exclusive streaming of Chad Daniels’ special. It’s refreshing to see artists and creators branch out and try different distribution models, as well as sites like Laughspin, embrace a growing trend.
When he appears on Conan this coming Tuesday (June 19), comedian Chad Daniels will have a lot to celebrate: his new hour-long stand-up special As Is will premiere premiere exclusively here on Laughspin on the same day!
A regular on the popular syndicated Bob & Tom radio show, Daniels already has his own Comedy Central half hour special, as well as a pair of albums, the last of which — Busy Being Awesome — came out in 2009. In March he beat out nine other comedians during the second annual Gilda’s Laughfest national stand-up competition, in which he received a check for $10,000. In the last few years, the Minnesota-based comic has established himself as a workhorse comedian, headlining comedy venues across the country. He’s smart without talking down to his audience, honest about life (he’s married with two kids) and is an incredibly skilled story teller and joke writer. We’re pretty damn honored to be presenting this to the world. To fully prep you for Tuesday’s premiere, we’ll be rolling out some previews of the special, the first of which is here. In it, Daniels relates a story about a time he was pulled over by a police officer. It did not go well. Enjoy!
Last night Marc Maron picked a fight discussion faux fight with Patton Oswalt. This sort of reminds me of what we’ve all been told about the back table at the Comedy Cellar in New York, wherein some of the best comics bust each others’ balls before and after their sets. Anyway, if you missed the exchange, I have some good news. I’ve laid it all out below in easy-to-read play-style format.
Marc Maron: Okay, fuckers! Beddy bye time!
Maron: I’m tired of this word crack house.
Patton Oswalt: Goddamit, I can’t sleep.
Maron: Shut the fuck up and go to bed.
Oswalt: YOU go to bed, motherfucker.
Maron: I’m not tired anymore. Entertain me, little man. Since your so AWAKE.
Oswalt: I hope you drown in a patchouli pit at Bonnaroo tomorrow. And the last thing you hear is “Sugar Magnolia” played on a washtub.
Maron: I hope your child wakes up.
Oswalt: I hope your inner child gets colic and snot-shits on your soul.
Maron: Shut up.
Maron: Hey, could you call me? I need a long winded wordy explanation of something simple.
Oswalt: Just listen to the first 10 minutes of any episode of your podcast.
Maron: Oh, shit. I’m down. I’m hit.
Download it tomorrow!
[via GrubstreetNY] “This is my family. These people know me,” he says. “This is fancy, man. They cook the food right in front of you. They might go to Pathmark and buy it, but they’re gonna cook it. Fancy.”
He says at one point, he was hitting this specific location three or four times a week. He also says he got a hibachi grill installed at his house and hires Benihana staffers to host Benihana nights at his house. It’s not surprising, then, that 30 Rock’s writers got the idea for last night’s plot line. “When they put Benihana on the show — all the writers know that I love this place — that was the greatest compliment they could show me.”

Some of you may have noticed that I posted these individually on my personal tumblr earlier tonight, but I didn’t want to torture you guys with 15 different posts about this, so I condensed them into one!
I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed casting them.
Since you’re following this blog, we’re assuming that either a) you like comedy or b) you are a porn bot. Either way, we thought you might be interested to know which comedians are on tumblr for your own trolling/porn-spamming pleasure, so we put together this comprehensive chunk of links to direct you to all of your favorite comedians who are blogging in the tumblrverse.

did we miss anybody big? send us some more comedians’ tumblrs and we’ll be sure to add them on!
Great job on this! Super Helpful. Though I feel like you should warn people that Brett Gelman’s Tumblr is just as uncomfortable as his comedy.
Not much in the way of notable music added (except maybe, like, NOFX?), but damn is that a hot comedy lineup:
►420 Comedy Blaze hosted by Cheech Marin featuring Ralphie May, the stars of Workaholics and more
►Henry Rollins [!!]
►Henson Alternative’s Stuffed & Unstrung
►The League (Paul Scheer, Nick Kroll, Jon Lajoie, Stephen Rannazzisi) [!!!]
►Donald Glover [!!!!]
►The Gregory Brothers [!!]
Still crossing our fingers for some Marc Maron action though…

Look at that lineup.
