Over & Over, a Comedy Special Documentary

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’s Jabba

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 on Kimmel

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.

Lights Out with David Spade

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!

Historical Roasts with Jeff Ross

A new Roast special is coming to Netflix. Of course Jeff Ross is the Roastmaster General but the other people on the show are from history. Comedians are dressed as you favorite historical figures like Abe Lincoln, Rosa Parks, Muhammad Ali, Cleopatra, Martin Luther King Jr and so many more. It premieres on May 27th and just like Bumping Mics, it will be your new favorite comedy special on Netflix!

Corinne Fisher: Becoming a Comedian

When Corinne Fisher was on Bertcast a couple weeks ago we discovered why Corinne Fisher became a comedian. Take a listen and hear something kind of different. Not all comedy comes from tragedy and Corinne Fisher is proof of that. Come see what we are talking about when she will be co-headlining with Krystyna Hutchinson  at Comedy Works Downtown in Larimer Square May 16th- 18th!

Taylor Tomlinson: Young and Brilliant

Taylor Tomlinson maybe young but has a brilliant take on dating and relationships. As she travels the country, she meets such eclectic range of people that sometimes the advice is the opposite of what you’d expect. Taylor takes all of this advice with  a grain of salt.  Conan is Talyor’s comedy father and what a great mentor to have. Come see one of the best up and coming comics at Comedy Works Downtown in Larimer Square May 8th – 11th.
