Fun Thing to Buy of the Day: 'Kyle Kinane – Whiskey Icarus'

Whiskey Icarus, Kyle Kinane’s first Comedy Central special, came out this week as a CD/DVD combo pack. In this follow up to Kinane’s celebrated 2010 debut Death of the Party, Kinane continues to tackle the important issues, such as what it’s like calling a cab to take him to Wendy’s and the underlying meaning and struggles of being delivered an unsliced pizza. Enjoy Kinane’s storytelling and self-deprecating take on everyday life, and then maybe treat yourself to an unsliced pizza of your very own.

Fun Thing to Buy of the Day: 'Chris Hardwick – Mandroid'

Nerdist founder/mogul Chris Hardwick's Comedy Central special Mandroid, which was recorded last February in New York and premiered last November, comes out on DVD and CD this week! Between his growing podcast network, book, Los Angeles theater space, and impending BBC America tv series, Hardwick has been altering the meaning of the word "nerd" (and in a good way!) while also being a funny person. Why not check out his comedy special?

Fun Thing to Buy of the Day: Del Close's 'How to Speak Hip'

What better way to honor improv guru Del Close than with a post about a spoken word record he released in 1959? With an entire three-day marathon of improv, you say? Maybe. But sadly, the Del Close Marathon only comes once a year. Until DCM16, pick up a copy of How to Speak Hip, a hilarious satire of language-learning manuals. Del plays the teacher, instructing the listener on the language and lifestyle of the ellusive "hipster" that was such a popular subculture at the time. With John Brent playing the hipster, Del walks the listener through basic vocabulary and follows Brent through a typical beatnik day. Not only is [...]

Fun Thing to Buy of the Day: 'Wilfred' Season 2

The third season of Wilfred premieres this week, but you can start slobbering now because the second season of the dark comedy is available on DVD and Blu-Ray today! A story of man and man's best friend, the FX series follows Ryan Newman, played by Elijah Wood, and his anthropomorphic dog, Wilfred, played by series co-creator Jason Gann, the only actor held-over from the original Australian series. Developed for American television by the original showrunner for Family Guy, David Zuckerman, Wilfred's second season resolves the cliff-hanger finale of season one, and finds Wilfred confronting Ryan with life's most serious questions concerning love, happiness, [...]

Fun Thing to Buy of the Day: 'Misfits Season 2'

Season 2 of oddly dark British comedy Misfits is now on DVD. The show follows five young delinquents who get strange super powers while doing community service. It has four seasons so far ("series", if you will) which have until now been available on European DVDs as well as Hulu and other parts of the internet, but now you can own it on a tangible DVD which you can touch and feel with your hands and then play using your American DVD player.

Fun Thing to Buy of the Day: 'Daria: The Complete Animated Series'

If you are even vaguely aware of the 90s, you have probably heard of Daria. If not, let me fill you in: Daria Morgendorffer and her dysfunctional family moves from Beavis and Butthead's town of Highland to Lawndale, leaving Daria with just as many idiots but slightly better animation. She's joined on her sardonic journey through high school by the eternally artsy Jane Lane and the whole lot of archetypal high school classmates, from the ditz and the jock to the obnoxious younger sibling. Created by Glenn Eichler (National Lampoon, Beavis and Butthead, The Colbert Report), Daria is a hilarious show that has definitely stood the test of time. If the [...]

Fun Thing to Buy of the Day: 'Seven Psychopaths'

Last fall's crime-centric black comedy Seven Psychopaths came out this week on DVD and Blu Ray, so why not get both? (Or just one — your choice.) The latest film from writer-director Martin McDonagh (In Bruges) features Colin Farrell, Sam Rockwell, Woody Harrelson, and Christopher Walken, not to mention at least three other psychopaths because that was only four people and the title says there’s seven.

Fun Thing to Buy of the Day: 'Amy Schumer – Mostly Sex Stuff'

What an excellent way to catch up with Schumer’s stand up before her show Inside Amy Schumer debuts on Comedy Central at the end of April!
