We talked about his preparation and recording of his most recent and excellent CD, Very Famous, which I highly recommend as well as the creation of the #SadSadConversation YouTube channel which he collaborates on with Joshua Malina, Steven Weber, Sarah Thyre, Martha Plimpton, Steve Agee, Jane Wiedlin, and many other notables. LA is very lucky tonight to have Michael Ian Black performing at the Largo! Tonight! There were still tickets available as of this morning - the Largo is a fantastically cool and intimate place to see Black, and with his history in television and film, there are sure to be plenty of his friends there.
The extremely funny Zach Woods who plays Gabe in "The Office" is one of the nicest guys in the business and you should see him at UCB if you ever get the chance. He's doing some very funny web pieces for Excedrin and I've included it at the end of this post.
The Hollywood Reporter has a nice little interview with Nick Offerman aka Ron Swanson of NBC's "Parks and Recreation" that I suggest you read.
Comedy Central has renewed "South Park" through 2016. It's not a show I watch regularly but it always makes me laugh every time I tune in. Congrats to Trey Parker and Matt Stone.
