Larry David Sits in With Jiminy Glick

Maya and Marty debuted this week and there was a lot of love for the new show. It's still very Lorne Michaels in casting, but far more Carol Burnett in feel and yet still current...just a little more adult. The series highlight over the course of a great hour undoubtably goes to Larry David's interview with Marty Short's infamous character Jimminy Glick.

Moontower Comedy Festival Must See Shows of 2016

MOONTOWER COMEDY & ODDITY FESTIVAL is back up this month, running from April 20th through the 23. Since its inception in 2012, Moontower has been one of the highlights of the festival year, bringing together an incredible lineup of comedy stars, comics just about to break, and international stars who you might not be familiar with yet. More focused on fans than industry, Moontower also has a reputation for being a comedy summer camp- three days where comics and fans can chill out, enjoy great bbq, drink, and enjoy one the city and the comedy. The venues are all close enough together that you don't need a car if you're staying nearby, adding to the community vibe, the parties are excellent, the ping pong tournament has become legendary but none of that matters without great comedy, and the comedy is always great.

It was Late Late but somehow still felt really early as Regis hosted the Late Late Show last night. Maybe it was because he sat at the big CBS morning show table, maybe it was because there was no audience, or maybe it was just because we miss having Regis on television every morning, but there was definitely an early vibe as the great Regis Philbin sat down with Alan Alda, Susan Sarandon and Martin Short.
