We have a new Channel Zero podcast for you, this time our interview with Comedy Central's "Queen of Mean" Lisa Lampanelli :

Adding fat to the fire, today Comedy Central announced the "Comedy Central Roast Of Charlie Sheen" aka #SheenRoast, which will tape in Los Angeles on Saturday, September 10. The Roast will premiere on Comedy Central on Monday, September 19 at 10:00pm.
Podcast Round-Up: If you watched "Christopher Titus: Neverlution" on Comedy Central this Sunday, and/or you are a Titus fan, you'll want to hear Marc Maron's extended WTFpod interview with him - it's excellent! The Long Shot Podcast has Myq Kaplan who has had specials on Comedy Central and was a finalist on "Last Comic Standing" in this very funny episode. Speaking of "Last Comic Standing," Greg Fitzsimmons has Iliza Schlesinger, the 2008 winner of "Last Comic Standing" on his FitzDog Radio podcast - Schlesinger is working with Fitzsimmons on a new show for VH1.
Fans of "Damages" as well as those that got disconnected from the series after it left FX will want to get their orders in now for "Damages: The Complete Third Season" DVD which becomes available one week from today, June 12, 2011. While I'm sure the roasters will have plenty of material, it just seems a bit too easy, doesn't it? Not coincidentally, the Roast will air the same night that Ashton Kutcher debuts on "Two and a Half Men."
