A Stormy Week in Comedy
– Jimmy Fallon and David Letterman did their shows without audiences for a night because of Hurricane Sandy wreaking havoc across the Northeast, while Bill Hader and this weekend’s host Louis C.K. promised that SNL will go on.
– A premiere date for Arrested Development was also set (April 2013).
– We interviewed Kristen Schaal, stand-up Taylor Williamson, Happy Endings stars Adam Pally and Casey Wilson, Daily Show producers Tim Greenberg, Miles Kahn, and Stu Miller, women in comedy author Yael Kohen, and Nature Calls co-stars Patton Oswalt and Rob Riggle.
– We looked at the technological advances of comedy trailblazers Lucille Ball, Desi Arnaz, Jerry Lewis, and Louis C.K.
