18th Annual Del Close Marathon Announces Line-Up and Schedule
The names on the flyer are only a fraction of the flocks upon flocks of teams and performers that will be performing in NYC for the literally non-stop Del Close Marathon from Fri. June 24th-Sun. June 26th (i.e. shows will be happening for 24 hours a day the whole weekend).
Take a gander at the whole routinely massive line-up and schedule right here.
Party Over Here Shows What Else You Can Do with Time Travel Besides Saving the World
Most movies and TV shows want to stop some catastrophe from happening if they’re invoking the technology of time travel within their premise.
Alison Rich Uploads a Sad, Miserable Consciousness Online on “Party Over Here”
We don’t know about you, but we think Party Over Here might serve Fox very well in the coming weeks as a sketch comedy show.
Case in point: this sketch where cast member Alison Rich gives uploading her consciousness online a try only to find that she’s probably not ready for the singularity.
Fox’s “Party Over Here” Premieres Tonight
However you watch it, we highly suggest that you don’t miss out.
Here’s a First Look at “Party Over Here”, Fox’s Lonely Island /Late Night Sketch Show Starring Alison Rich, Jessica McKenna, and Nicole Byer
Alison Rich, Nicole Byer, and Jessica McKenna along with the guidance of The Lonely Island and Paul Scheer are going to bring what seems to be a more fast paced, fourth wall-breaking version of sketch to television.
Get your first look at what they all have up their sleeve here.
Nicole Byer, Jessica McKenna, and Alison Rich Will Star in a New, Lonely Island-Produced, Paul Scheer-Directed Sketch Variety Series “Party Over Here” at Fox
Though it’s going to air on Saturdays, it’s not going against SNL.
Party Over Here, which is also the name of The Lonely Island’s production company, will be the new late night sketch show that will run on Fox’s schedule. For years, Fox didn’t have any late night programming to really speak of and let their last sketch series, Mad TV, live in the shadow of what all its cast did after the show ended (i.e. Key & Peele).
This time around, Fox has plenty of comedy fan buzzworthy talent in the ranks of Party Over Here. Not only are The Lonely Island (Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone, and Akiva Schaffer) executive producing the series, but Paul Scheer is directing and the aforementioned Nicole Byer, Jessica McKenna, and Alison Rich, who have all gained comedic notoriety on their own over the last few years, are headlining the cast.
The series is set for a Sat. Mar. 12th premiere at 11PM and will very notably not air against Saturday Night Live. Party Over Here will only be a half hour and also not broadcast live.
All of those moves are probably for the best.
Here’s Another Installment of College Humor’s “If Google Was a Guy”
Having a clean, simple, faceless interface to literally type anything you wish to query is part of why we Google anything our hearts, minds, and other parts wish to Google.
Making that process into something more akin to asking a librarian is such an awkward experience that it has helped make College Humor’s If Google Was a Guy starring Brian Huskey one of their best series.

SNL Hires Alison Rich as Writer
Saturday Night Live has started the process of getting their new hires. For their first, they’ve made a fine choice in the very funny Alison Rich who you’ve probably seen in many a funny web video/sketch over the last few years.
For now, she’s only a writer, but we wouldn’t be surprised to see her as a full SNL cast member.
