Here’s a whole set of “long reads” that span the comedy spectrum of Kyle Kinane pointedly defending not proliferating bad comedy all the way to a review of the long-running series we’re all a part of called “America” by Megan Amram.

“Radiohead wouldn’t exist without early major-label funding. The future won’t bring new Radioheads. All I want to say here, truly, is: let’s get used to it.” by Mike Doughty for his blog (don’t worry, there’s very prominent nod to comedy in this)
“America: A Review” by Megan Amram for her blog
