A Mind Trip Unlike Any Other

The man’s name was Robin Williams. The man’s occupation was making people laugh. And the formula for comedy is tragedy plus time.

We owe Robin Williams, the man who made us laugh out loud and cry like no other comic (Mrs. Doubtfire, dears), to take the time to hear and understand his personal tragedy that, evidently, was a parallel force pulling at the imaginative, faster-than-lightning comedic genius.

This brand new trailer for the brand new HBO documentary ‘Robin Williams: Come Inside My Mind’ will make us laugh and make us cry. Hopefully, HBO has timed the release date of Monday, July 16 at 8 p.m. ET correctly so audiences can appreciate both emotions separately and as one.

One final picture of the art form known as Robin Williams.

Jim Gaffigan’s Cinco de Donuts

Today is National Donut Day. A great holiday. And, really, there’s only one person on this planet should be featured to celebrate this special occasion with material from his ‘Cinco’ special.

Some people refer to him as Mr. Universe.

Do nut (I know, I know) underestimate stand-up comedian Jim Gaffigan to deliver the laughs…

The Three Rs of Heckling

If being heckled–for whatever reason in some form or another–was a day of the week, it would be Wednesday. Why? Because we’ve gotten through Monday and Tuesday, and we’re feeling pretty good about the week. Then, just at that moment, it happens. The party appears to have been broken up.

The very funny John Mulaney can relate.

Now it’s time to regain our composure for Thursday for what will, hopefully, lead to a Friday night with that well-earned cash money…

A Stand-Up’s Guide to Standing Out

Jim Gaffigan is advertised as the clean “everyman/dad” comic who specializes in food jokes (Hot Pockets, anyone?). So, would you be surprised to learn that this very same stand-up comedian possesses a skill for standing out in a crowd?

We all want to be different in some way. We all want to have attributes unique to ourselves. And one of the ways we can distinguish from others is through comedy, which requires a great sense of humor. This is where the aforementioned Jim Gaffigan comes back into play in this blog post.

As Mr. Gaffigan explains, the journey towards genuine individualism involves many detours through unknown, foreign places…

like China?

Next stop for the Gaffigan family:

Family Feud!

Or the game show Jim Gaffigan would prefer:

Family Food.

Thank you, I’m here all night Monday-Friday.
