Patriot Act touches on issues that face society today in a fun and educational way. It is filmed in front of a live studio audience, which makes it feel like a live stand up show. The difference here is that Hasan Minjah does a segment called “Deep Cuts”. Basically this series show the parts of the filming that does make it to the final cut of the episode. It gives Hasan a chance to engage with the audience and answer personal, silly, and sometimes serious questions about the world we are living in. The questions he answers during this part are submitted by an audience member. The crowd gets the chance to interact with Hasan on a personal level and helps with the overall atmosphere of the show in general. Sometimes they even get some comedian friends to stop by and talk like Phoebe Robinson, Desus and Mero. You never know what is going to be discussed but you know it will be entertaining. Hasan says “This is my favorite part of the show!” Check all the episode at https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLE6linSnhLs377HnPjCNKbSezvRjLHg0k
Comics can have many talents but dressing is not necessarily one of those talents. Tan France from Queer Eye is lending his services and expertise to the comedy community. He is adding his flare, style and fashion to the comedy scene. He asks Netflix comedians to come in for a wardrobe make over. Just to name a few, Nick Kroll, Ali Wong, Tina Fey, and Pete Davidson.

We all know Kelsey Cook from her podcast, Self-Helpless, and her video series on All Things Comedy, Wrists of Fury, but have you seen or remember her show on youtube, Stand-ups Doing Makeup? She is a foosball champ, hilarious comedian, and a really good makeup artist. Is there anything she can’t do? With that being said there are many comedians that should just stick to telling jokes on stage. Despite their best efforts, her guests transform Kelsey’s face into some version of the joker without fail. It is the thought that counts though, right? Some guests on the show were Sean Patton, Mark Normand, Ryan Sickler, Bert Kreischer, Brad Williams, Jessimae Peluso, Jim Norton, and Sam Tripoli. Kelsey no longer does this show but it is nice to go down memory lane!
A hilarious concept for a show! Netflix got 7 of their comics to enter into Joke House! A parody in which 7 comics stay in a one bed hotel room and try to stand each others company. Much like Big Brother, each comic serves a different purpose and what havoc they will create for the group. Unfortunately it is only a 5 minute trailer but it is a hilarious 5 minutes that shows how fun and ridiculous the comedy world is. Still kind of wish it was a real show but with only 5 minutes of footage you can really see the craziness ensue.
Between The Soup and Community, Joel McHale fans have been used to their once a week fix of this hilarious actor and comedian.

It is bound to be an incredible special considering Comedy Dynamics is involved. Any comedy lovers should have this special on their radar!
If you have ever seen Kyle Kinane’s comedy then it is not a far leap to a punk rocker. He has always had a rockstar vibe that is finally being tested by his new venture into music. Hearing his voice over Comedy Central for years, it can be hard to believe that he has a great singing voice. But his raspy voice translates perfectly with this genre of music. A music video was released last month of the single of their debut album. Take a look at “Disappear” by Off With There Heads below. You can pre-order the whole album now for an August 16th release date. There is nothing that this man can’t do!
She is back with a brand new special. Whitney Cummings has been working and touring this hour for years but the wait is over. If you have seen here on Twitter or Instagram you will know that between writing on TV shows and taking care of animals, she has also been slaying on stages around the country. It was great when she was here back in September and not just because she surprised a bachelorette party in their limo. Whitney is an incredible comic and incredible person. Support this funny lady by watching her new Netflix special, Can I Touch it?, on July 30th!
Self-promotion has become so desperate and embarrassing that this is what it’s come to promote my new @NetflixIsAJoke special called CAN I TOUCH IT? which I can finally announce streams July 30. pic.twitter.com/wwXTmsIoDU

Have you ever wondered how the kids feel about their parents doing comedy? Can you imagine if you were one of the main focuses in their act, to be the butt of the joke?

Little Jo reacts and has a great sense of humor about the whole thing which is a testament to how Jo Koy raised him. Watch the the video below to see what we are talking about!
