These people are Doing, Doing and Doing IT Well (in the words of LL Cool J who recently broke the face of a man who broke into his home)!

I am incredibly excited to ask you (well to tell you really, perhaps order you even, but politely) all to turn your televisions to NBC tonight, Thursday September 6th at 12:30 (I know some of you sticklers for exactness are saying well technically that's Friday morning) for Late Night with Jimmy Fallon to watch the very funny and talented Calise Hawkins making her late night debut! She was recently featured on Montreal's Just for Laughs Festival and has been seen on Comedy Central. I have known Calise since I started doing stand-up here in NYC, she is hilarious and has been working really hard kicking comedy ass. Please check her out tonight! Congratulations Calise!
Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell airs Thursdays at 11pm on FX. If you aren't already, watch it! I met Kamau for the first time last year when we were on the America Stands Up Showcase during the Magner's Comedy Festival in Glasgow. Kamau is incredibly funny AND has something important to say. His show is relevant, discussing politics, culture, race, religion, the media, etc. Congrats Kamau and co - you are making the world a funnier and better place!
Nick Cobb (as seen on Last Comic Standing and Live at Gotham on Comedy Central) is headlining Caroline's on Broadway 10pm tonight (Thursday September 6th). Nick is MUY funny and I saw him tear it up on the dance floor at a wedding this past week (I would be remiss if I did not say I was impressed). I am hosting for Nick at Carolines. Come out and use promo code COB10 for discount tickets.
Not this Thursday, but next Wednesday September 12th at 8:45 I am co-hosting K-Hole Comedy at The People's Improv Theater with Jessimae Peluso. We have incredible comedians performing, Thomas Dale, Kara Klank & Mindy Raf AND it is ONLY $5. Show starts promptly at 9pm so please arrive by 8:45 for seating. We can't do it without you. No pressure.
Always be laughing. Even when it hurts.
