Action Civics CA, an organization to educating the youth into being informed, responsible citizens of the world, is throwing another huge comedy benefit at DTLA’s Theatre at Ace Hotel that features many of your favorite comedy folks (really, just look at that line-up that will probably have more huge names added as they get closer to the day of).
Joe Mande’s 1st Hour Special “Joe Mande’s Award-Winning Comedy Special” Is Now Streaming
Just for the fact that Joe Mande called his first hour special “Joe Mande’s Award-Winning Comedy Special” should be enough to at least tug at your curiosity to give it a watch.
A la The Secret, Mande not only named this special with the hopes of it winning awards, but also weaved a silly, meta narrative thread through the hour that makes you wonder if Joe can really “moneyball” a comedy special. That includes surprise cameos from Bo Burnham, Blake Griffin, and George Wallace.
Also, the entrepreneurial pitches and Mande’s own personal crisis over free speech are bits that stand alone separate from the “award-winning” framework.
With all of that said, you can now go stream Joe Mande’s Award Winning Comedy Special at Netflix.
Joe Mande Already Has Plenty of “Acclaim” in Trailer for “Joe Mande’s Award-Winning Comedy Special”
If you buy into The Secret, maybe it would be a good idea to call your yet-to-be-released-or-even-submitted-for-awards-consideration special an “award winning special” and project what you might think critics will say about it.
Whether that’s the reason behind it or not, that is what Joe Mande is doing with his special and the accompanying trailer.
See for yourself here, then look for Joe Mande’s Award-Winning Comedy Special to start streaming on Tuesday, July 25th.
Two Upcoming Netflix Comedy Specials We’re Excited for Are Called “Joe Mande’s Award-Winning Comedy Special” and “Rory Scovel Tries Stand-Up For the First Time”
Also, we just love the juxtaposition of the titles of their specials and how much of a goofy range it covers.
Oh, in case it wasn’t clear, mark these dates down as Joe and Rory’s new hour will definitely be worth watching.
Rabbit Hole with Jay Larson and Rory Scovel Will Be Replacing The Meltdown with Jonah & Kumail
One of the most revered weekly stand-up shows in the country, The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail, ended its 6 year run last month, which included three seasons as a TV series on Comedy Central.
Naturally, the 8:30PM slot at Nerdmelt where Meltdown took place was going to be filled in by something given Meltdown’s status as a flagship show at the theater.
In two weeks, you will all have a very exciting and worthy show filling in with Rabbit Hole with Jay Larson and Rory Scovel produced by Nerdmelt’s Caitlin Durante. Larson and Scovel are two of our favorites and this show will be in good hands as you can see with our thoughts on Jay’s recent album Human Math and Scovel’s latest Conan set.
In the inaugural show, Kate Berlant, Todd Glass, Bridey Elliott, Joe Mande, Baron Vaughn, and a surprise guest will be performing. It should go without saying that it’ll be a hell of a show and something that will get us all through the next few years and beyond.
Tickets are $10 and are available now here.
