Joe Mande and Noah Garfinkel are known for making some pretty great pop culture-focused videos for their live variety show Totally J/K, and their recent collaboration reimagining the lyrics to Future's song "Shit" is no exception. Be warned that there are some offensive lyrics here if you consider hoses, tacos, and honey bubbles to be offensive.
Joe Mande always seems one step ahead.
Whether it’s his Twitter stunts, multimedia shows, or stories about attending a live taping of The Mike Huckabee Show really high, the LA-based comedian and writer has a knack for getting out in front of trends.
It makes sense then that Mande’s latest project is a comedy mixtape he’s releasing in place of a traditional album, complete with DJ drops, comedy sketches, and cameos from Amy Poehler, A$AP Yams, Nick Kroll, Jenny Slate, Jon Daly, Roy Hibbert, and more. The mixtape, which drops today, is called Bitchface and it's being released on former Das Racist frontman Heem’s record [...]
Standup and Parks and Recreation writer Joe Mande is trying something new on Twitter: buying a million bot followers from questionable overseas companies. Yahoo has an interview with Mande in which he discusses this new project of his. Here's a bit from it:
It started with the fact that I had been stuck at 80,400 [followers] for months. And I realized that, at this point the number [of followers] you have on Twitter is the number you’re at.

Here's a brand new clip from Nick Kroll's Comedy Central series Kroll Show in which he and SNL writer John Mulaney reprise their "Oh, Hello" characters, George St Geegland (Mulaney) and Gil Faizon (Kroll). Kroll and Mulaney created the characters, a pair of Alan Alda-obsessed, Upper West Side, middle-aged divorcees, whom they've played onstage and in viral videos since 2008. In this clip, George and Gil are hosting a prank show called Too Much Tuna, pulling a fun joke on Gil's stepson Elon (played by Kroll Show writer Joe Mande). Kroll Show premieres next Wednesday at 10:30, but is it too soon to start hoping for an "Oh, [...]
Sarah Colonna tweeted this picture that reveals this year's Variety "10 Comics to Watch", probably because she was super excited to be featured. Also probably excited are: Jillian Bell, Kurt Braunohler, Rob Delaney, Lil Rel Howery, Jake & Amir, Moshe Kasher, Joe Mande, Rory Scovel, and Jessica Williams. Considering its track record, this is a big break for these young comedians. Last year's list included Rebel Wilson, Amy Schumer, Harris Wittels, Chris D'Elia, and Pete Holmes and they're doing all right. The issue doesn't officially get released until 7/25, so we won't know why each was picked until then. But it's probably because they're all funny and cool and [...]
