In the 15 years since their uncanny cartoon Tom Goes to the Mayor debuted in the wee hours of a later-than-late-night Adult Swim programming block, comedians Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim have amassed a mammoth body of work, from the beloved Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! to the the…

Long one of the more interesting voices in comedy, Doug Stanhope has been acclaimed, derided, respected (his specials No Refunds and Beer Hall Putsch are two of the greatest hours of the past two decades) and abhorred (the last season of The Man Show). He has weathered the uncertainties of t…

For years Jen Kirkman was branded a party girl. Regular appearances on Chelsea Lately and Drunk History led fans to believe she was all about boozing, schmoozing and goofing off. But as a stand-up comedian, Kirkman has been doing her part to smash the patriarchy and shun traditional gender r…

It was on Netflix’s The Comedy Lineup last summer that the unsuspecting world at large got their first look at Tim Dillon, who will perform at Zanies Tuesday, Aug. 6. Comedy heads, nationwide audiences and edgelord podcasters had been talking him up for years, and then his Comedy Central hal…

The near-meteoric rise of Scottish comedian and storyteller Daniel Sloss is a glorious blast of cosmic reassurance from the universe that distinctive voices are out there in the world and ready for discovery. With two of his recent shows (Dark and Jigsaw) dropping on Netflix in September, th…

There are few voices like Patton Oswalt’s operating in the world today. A gifted and nimble actor who can handle the traditional sitcom idiom, voice-overs for family entertainment, the embodiment of hapless authority figures and — since his epic 2003 double album 222 — being the impishly inq…

In March, after five seasons and 50 episodes, comedian-actress-writer-director Ilana Glazer and her partner Abbi Jacobson called it quits on their breakout Comedy Central program Broad City. During its tenure, the show relied upon many of the central tenets of stoner comedy — sight gags, far…

As your pals at the Scene noted back in April, Ilana Glazer — one-half of the famed komedic-kween duo behind recently departed hit series Broad City — will play TPAC's Polk Theater on June 4. Since our announcement, Glazer added a late show, and since then, the early show sold out. Remaining…

ICYMI: Five women accused Louis C.K. of some pretty disgusting behavior a couple years ago — almost all of it involving attempts by the comic to masturbate in front of them.

Last month, after five seasons and 50 episodes, Comedy Central's hit show Broad City called it quits. And indeed, many a fan of the sitcom created by and starring comedians Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer is likely still in mourning. While the show relied upon many of the central tenets of st…

Get a load of this: Next month will mark the 20th anniversary of smash-hit sitcom Seinfeld's divisive finale. What better way for the show's star to mark the occasion than with a stand-up tour, right?

When famed comic and actor Hannibal Buress played Nashville a couple years back, he hit TPAC's 1,000-seat Polk Theater. He told me he dug performing in theater spaces because of the opportunities rooms like those presented, production- and video-wise. But he must have a soft spot for the sma…

Maybe you know the affably gruff sound of Kyle Kinane’s voice from the time he has spent as one of the finest storytellers in modern comedy, or from his magnificent and deconstructive podcast The Boogie Monster with comedian Dave Stone. Or maybe you know him as the voice of all the in-house …
