The special, which features a cameo from Schaal's comedy partner Kurt Braunohler, will be released via an extended DVD the next day,on April 2nd.

With Comedy Bang Bang Gone, What's L.A.'s Next Big Stand-up Show?

2012 was the end of an era for the Los Angeles comedy scene, as Comedy Bang Bang, the influential weekly stand-up showcase co-created by Scott Aukerman, ended its ten year run earlier this month. Comedy Bang Bang (originally titled Comedy Death-Ray) will live in on in the form of the popular podcast and IFC show of the same name, but the live show's impact upon the L.A. comedy scene (and the comedy world at large) is endless. Comedy Bang Bang first started in 2002 when the term "alternative comedy" actually meant something, years before Zach Galifianakis was a major movie star or Louis C.K. was the country's leading [...]

Watch Kristen Schaal Tell Jay Leno About Her First Trip to a Strip Club

Fun Thing to Buy of the Day: Kristen Schaal – Live at the Fillmore

Kristen Schaal has been a stand-out star on TV for a long enough time — in live action shows like Flight of the Conchords and The Daily Show as well as cartoons like Bob’s Burgers and Gravity Falls — that it’s hard to believe that Live at the Fillmore is her first full-length standup special. But even if it’s surprising, it’s true; this week Comedy Central is releasing Schaal's debut Live at the Fillmore on DVD. In addition to Schaal's one-hour special, the DVD also features material from her performances on Comedy Central Presents and John Oliver's New York Stand-Up Show, and her favorite appearances on The [...]

Mel Brooks and Kristen Schaal Are Delightful on 'Conan'

Conan had a stacked deck last night with lovely comedy people Mel Brooks and Kristen Schaal stopping by to talk about stuff and be funny while doing it (stand-up Jon Dore was also set to appear but was bumped for time). Here's the start of Brooks's interview, in which he talks about his youth as a cocky shoplifter. Hit the jump for the rest of Brooks's interview, which touches on Blazing Saddles, Sid Caesar, and World War II stories, as well as Kristen Schaal's interview, which is coincidentally all about Blazing Saddles, Sid Caesar, and World War II:

Jon Benjamin "Legtimately Annoyed" by His Fellow 'Bob's Burgers' Cast Members

“I am legitimately annoyed by the other [Bob's Burgers] actors a huge part of the time… Recording sessions for [creator] Loren [Bouchard]’s shows can run six, seven hours, which doesn’t sound like a huge deal — everybody works that long — but when you’re in a recording booth it’s suffocating. So in a weird way he has created this family dynamic, which is like, ‘God, I wish Kristen Schaal would stop eating that fucking rice cake thing she’s always eating. It’s so annoying. And Eugene Mirman, I wish he would get off his iPad and stop tweeting for five minutes so he can do his fucking lines. And John Roberts is [...]

Kristen Schaal's New Comedy Central Special Premieres Tonight at Midnight

The very funny Kristen Schaal has a new hour-long stand-up special debuting tonight at 12am on Comedy Central. The only reason not to watch is out of respect for Schaal, who's been doing a bit where she says she's disappointed with how the taping went and discourages people from watching it interviews and a series of tweets.

Amazon Orders Six Comedy Pilots from The Onion, Kristen Schaal and More is continuing to develop its slate of original TV series, with a strong emphasis on comedy.
