Bring the Funny is nothing like we have seen on TV before. Though NBC helped comedians make the limelight on Last Comic Standing, this show will give more than just stand up comedians a chance. Not only will it feature stand up but also variety and sketch comedy for a chance to win $250,000 and perform at the prestigious Just for Laughs Festival in 2020. The host is Amanda Seales and judges are Jeff Foxworthy, Kenan Thompson, and Chrissy Teigen. Some performers will definitely look familiar like Pat Regan and Jeremiah Watkins, Jesus Trejo, Ali Siddiq, and Rocky Dale Davis. Excited to see how everyone does on this show. Premiering July 9th on NBC after America’s Got Talent.
Iliza has 4 Netflix specials so it makes her the perfect person to make a documentary about everything that goes into recording these specials. She teamed up with Comedy Dynamic to bring us Over & Over, showing how she prepared for the recording of her most recent special, Elder Millennial. If you watch closely you get a glimpse of Iliza on our Comedy Works South stage. Available July 2nd on iTunes, Amazon Prime, Google Play, and more.
Iliza thanks her fans by saying “We created something special for the fans, new and old, as a way to say thank you for always being there and supporting me. Words cannot express my gratitude to them for always showing up. Over and Over is as much about them as it is about me.”
Steve Simeone started coming to Comedy Works with Ari Shaffir so it is so cool to hear this discussion between these 2 favorites of the club. It is even more exciting to hear how much they love us. The club that comes to mind first is Comedy Works Downtown. Maybe next time they decide to record they will grace us with honor. If you have haven’t heard this album, you need to. No one has praising the dad material like Steve Simeone. Two one of a kind comics talk comedy and recording an album, is there anything better?!
Anthony Jeselnik is known for his perfectly crafted dark jokes. Being recorded right after Father’s day, Anthony talks about how he got the Pittsburgh Pirates to let his dad throw out the first pitch on his 70th birthday. Such an awesome gift from an awesome son. Of course this quickly turns into a conversation about his dark sense of humor and how it plays with crowds. Sure at this point many comedians have done stand up comedy in prisons, but Jeselnik’s humor was not welcome at San Quentin Penitentiary when he “opened” for Queens of the Stone Age. Watch the clip for the full story.
David Spade’s new late show is premiering July 29th. Lights Out with David Spade will take the prime show spot after The Daily Show with Trevor Noah. You can’t tell much from the promo video that Comedy Central put up but we anticipate a light hearted, silly take on pop culture with appearances from Spade’s funny comedian and celebrity friends. Leaving the political humor to The Daily Show, Lights Out could be a nice change of pace for the audience. Make sure you tune in or set it up to record. You will not want to miss it!
The Lonely island has a new song out! Oakland Nights has a star studded video with Sterling K. Brown, lip syncs Sia’s part while wearing a black and white wig like Sia. The video also has appearances from Hannah Simone from New Girl and Jenny Slate. Musical Comedy at its finest. Enjoy!

Miranda Sings, Jo Koy, Gabriel “Fluffy” Iglesias, and Mike Epps have all raced Comedy Works stage with their incredible comedy. Congrats to all of these talented people.
