Tuesday, September 6th is coming fast - check out the new "Sons of Anarchy" promo above and get ready for the 90-minute premiere.
I may not enjoy "Entourage" very much but I've been enjoying Andrew Dice Clay's presence on the show this season. In the real world, the Diceman will be doing a one night engagement at the legendary Roxy Theatre on Thursday, September 8th, at 9pm. I recently enjoyed Marc Maron's excellent WTFpod interview with Clay, it's worth the listen.
Also in podcastland, Greg Fitzsimmons had an excellent, if brief, sit down with Mike O'Malley who currently has a starring role on Fox's "Glee" and is also a writer on Showtime's "Shameless." O'Malley and Fitzsimmons get into a very interesting debate on hate speech/freedom of speech as it applies to bullying, Andy Dick's outburst on Fitzsimmons' satellite radio show, and the Tracy Morgan incident. If you like comedy, TV, and the constitution, this is a great podcast episode to listen to. I was also pleased to hear that Fitzsimmons' will be hosting a show on the Speed network that shoots this fall ("Pumped").
Last month we really loved interviewing Paul Scheer, the man behind Adult Swim's "NTSF:SD:SUV" and so many other wonderful creations, such as "Human Giant." You will also love hearing him on the most recent (and excellent) Gentlemen's Club podcast.
FEARnet, cable television’s premier horror, thriller and suspense channel, has added Dee Snider (of Twisted Sister faame) and Oderus Urungus (from legendary heavy metal band “GWAR”) to "Holliston," their new half-hour comedy/horror series. The series has a six-episode order and is slated to begin production in September.
