FX/FXx has found their next comedian that they want to develop a series around thankfully in Jen Kirkman. Much along the way Legit and Louie are focused on the comedy of Jim Jefferies and Louis C.K., ‘Jen’ will be seemingly very much centered on Jen Kirkman’s stand up.
It’s also good to see that FXx is keeping their development slate robost and moving. If anything, this should emphatically prove that Jen Kirkman, as her podcast suggests, is indeed fun.
We’re not sure how many times we’re going to say “nice move” to Fox by picking up what sounds like an amazing comedy project, but here we go again as they have gotten their hands on something from the combined talents of Matt Gourley of Super Ego, Amanda Lund of Yahoo’s Ghost Ghirls, Jack Black, and Diablo Cody.
Paul F. Tompkins' new show on Fusion is pretty great if you haven't seen it yet or got around to getting Fusion on your TV.
Basically, Tompkins discusses big time issues with puppets (i.e. immigration reform with an alien puppet) and there are a few clips of it to watch at Fusion.net that you should absolutely watch right now.
On Sunday, at the Cards Against Humanity panel at PAX Prime, the hosts brought up a number of guests in order to pay tribute to our friend Ryan Davis. My buddy Eric Pope shared with the audience and the people watching the live stream the above audio, which I now share with you.
Ryan loved Comedy Bang Bang, and particularly loved the character Bob Ducca. I asked Seth Morris to make something as Bob Ducca that I could share with Ryan’s friends and coworkers. Seth didn’t know Ryan, and he didn’t have to do this. But he did, because Seth is awesome.
It’s a small thing, really. I was watching the live stream on Sunday, and got to hear people laugh. And that made me feel good. I’m glad a lot of people will hear this, because I think it’s really funny.
