Here's a brand new installment of Speakeasy featuring Paul F. Tompkins's IRL friend Andy Daly, who talks with Tompkins all about his Comedy Central series Review, juggling his career and family (he thankfully hasn't missed any of his kids' birthdays yet), his love for VH1's Behind the Music, and the "chilling darkness" of his many characters from The Andy Daly Podcast Pilot Project, which he confirms is returning for a second season soon.

Andy Daly Makes His Talk Show Guest Debut on 'Late Night'

Last week, Review star Andy Daly made his very first talk show guest appearance on Late Night. Before telling Meyers more details about the upcoming divorce-themed episode of Review, the two reminisced about going to the Survivor parties of MADtv's Nicole Sullivan, which sound like they were pretty cutthroat.

Key and Peele, Nick Kroll, Adam DeVine, and More Share Their Least Favorite Comedy Clichés

HitFix recently got the opportunity to interview a bunch of Comedy Central stars, and they posed an interesting question to all of them: "Which comedy clichés bother you most?" The responses are equally varied and hilarious — who knew Nick Kroll had such a low tolerance for pretty much everything?

Andy Daly's 'Review' Continues Comedy Central's Hot Streak

Comedy fans have known Andy Daly to be one of the funniest writer/performers in the business for over a decade now. After stealing scenes in countless mainstream movies and cult shows alike, Daly was finally given his own TV show earlier this year by Comedy Central. Review, which he stars in and co-created, wrapped up its first season last night, and it actually managed to exceed my already high expectations for what to expect from a show from the mind of Andy Daly. It's just a shame it took this long for a network to give him his own series.

Review is presented as a fictional television show that [...]

Andy Daly's New Show 'Review' Is Sharp and Full of Promise

"Life. It’s literally all we have. But is it any good?"

Last night, this so very critical question was posed by Andy Daly’s earnest and committed life critic Forest MacNeil before taking on the life experiences of stealing, addiction, and the prom in the premiere episode of Review on Comedy Central. By MacNeil's patented five-star rating system, the experiences didn't fare well, but the pilot works as a highly successful demonstration of the show's central concept in action, and its blend of dark comedy and news magazine parody, sharp writing, and talented cast make it a very promising show with seemingly endless storytelling potential.

Based on the Australian [...]

Above watch MacNeil try to eat an "upsetting number of pancakes," then click through to watch his attempt to become a full-blown racist. (Spoiler alert: He already is one.)

Andy Daly and 'Superego's Matt Gourley Are Hosting a New Podcast for Earwolf

Podcast network Earwolf announced a new show yesterday. Called The Andy Daly Podcast Pilot Project, the podcast will be hosted by Andy Daly with Superego's Matt Gourley, who's also a producer at Earwolf, serving as his co-host. Each episode, The Andy Daly Podcast Pilot Project will find Daly and Gourley presenting audiences with a different pilot for a show submitted to Earwolf, like one by Daly's Comedy Bang! Bang! character Dalton Wilcox that they mention as an example. The show doesn't launch until February, but there's a half-hour teaser episode with guest Scott Aukerman up now.

Chris Hardwick, Tig Notaro, and Andy Daly Have a Fascinating Discussion About Bread

If you ever wanted to enjoy Chris Hardwick's show Talking Dead but would prefer to learn more about delicious carb-based goodies instead of a zombie show you don't watch, Conan has now made that happen. Sadly most television shows don't have the courage required to discuss this hard-hitting topic, but with some help from Tig Notaro and Andy Daly, Hardwick gives bread the spotlight it so richly deserves.

Talking to Andy Daly About ‘Review’, ‘The Andy Daly Podcast Pilot Project’, and His Many Characters

Comedy Central’s Review, a new show for which TV reviewers must already have their puns locked and loaded, premieres tonight. Based on the Australian cult hit Review with Myles Barlow, it stars Andy Daly (who also created the show) as Forrest MacNeil, a straight-laced, intellectual “life critic” who wholeheartedly commits to reviewing firsthand experiences — including drug addiction, racism and sex with a celebrity — and weathers through the resulting chaos. Review also stars Jessica St. Clair, Fred Willard and James Urbaniak, and features such five-star guests as Jason Mantzoukas, Maria Thayer, Lance Bass and Andy Richter.

I recently had a chance to ask [...]

'The Andy Daly Podcast Pilot Project' Lives Up to Lofty Expectations

In the ever-expanding universe of comedy podcasts, few people are held in higher esteem than Andy Daly. Whenever I’m asked to provide a recommendation for someone looking to become better acquainted with the overwhelming world of improvisational podcasts, I suggest one of Daly's classic appearances on Comedy Bang! Bang! Those episodes deftly showcase the pinnacle of comedy podcasting while, at the same time, serving as a fairly accurate barometer of an individual’s comedic sensibility. It’s possible you may enjoy other comedy podcasts if you don’t find Daly’s frequent appearances on Comedy Bang! Bang! amusing; it’s just not probable. The news that Daly would attempt the intricate transition from guest [...]
