Todd Glass's Memoir Has a Title and a Release Date

Standup Todd Glass got a book deal after the excellent, acclaimed 2012 episode of WTF with Marc Maron in which he came out of the closet, and that book is finally hitting the shelves this summer.

Called The Todd Glass Situation: A Bunch of Lies about My Personal Life and a Bunch of True Stories about My 30-Year Career in Stand-Up Comedy, the memoir is being released on June 3rd, features blurbs from Glass's buddies Norm Macdonald, Sarah Silverman, and Patton Oswalt, and is available for preorder now.

This Week in Comedy Podcasts

Did you see the announcement of the South By Southwest Comedy Lineup? They might as well call it “Pod By Podcast,” amiright? Nope? Fair enough. I’m just saying there is a lot of podcasting going down. I like to imagine there is one podcast diehard who is going to SXSW just to see those live taping, oblivious to the music festival swirling around him or her. If you’re out there Mister or Miss (it’s probably Mister), godspeed noble podcast fan, let me know what it’s like to see Greg Proops beautifully ramble for an hour, surrounded by the smell of smoked cow and spilled tequila.

Are you totally psyched for the Super Bowl this Sunday? Who are you rooting for? The Giants? The Patriots? Or maybe the Giant Patriots with their star QB, Paul Bunyan Revere (sorry/you’re welcome)? I heard Tom Brady doesn’t listen to music to get pumped (athletes still say, “pumped,” right?) for a game — he listens to podcasts, comedy podcasts at that. Seriously, look it up. Ok, don’t look it up because I’m lying but what if I wasn’t? Wouldn’t we all feel cooler to know we share a hobby with that human action figure of a man? What do you think he’d listen to? Who talks about their hair [...]

It’s TV sweeps season, ya’ll. It’s the time when networks do their best to woo our eyeballs and earholes. What have you been watching? Nothing?! So, you are saying that you’ve completely abandoned all visual mediums for all podcasts all the time? High five! Here are our picks for this week’s notable TV substitutes.

Did you hear, did you hear? The Oscar nominations came out this week and woof. You call these movies, Hollywood? More like move-these pieces of ssshhhhh out of my face. War Horse!? More like bore horse or snore horse or I roar (booooo) horse. Anyway, podcasts. Podcasts are good nay great. It can be argued (and is currently being argued by me right now with these words) that movies have grown worse because the talent that might have once made cinema is now spread out amongst other media like television and podcasts. Call me crazy but The Help is really only one or two Scott Aukerman punch-ups away [...]

Who let the pods out? Casts, casts, casts casts casts! Is that the worst one yet? Probably but it did make you wonder why the original song's lyrics weren't "Who let the dogs out? Cats, cats, cats cats cats." Because cats don't really like dogs, you know? You know. Seriously though, lots of people let the podcasts out and we are so so so (your boat) thankful. If they didn't, what would we write about each week in this column? It's called "This Week in Comedy Podcasts" what other choice do we have? Ok, I guess we could critique the casting styles of the fisherman who use funny looking [...]

This very column started nine months ago with these immortal words by Mr. Joe Berkowitz: “Every week, it seems, the known galaxy of headphone-hilarity expands further, taking up even more storage space on iPhones the world over. In fact, it’s entirely possible that while you were reading that last sentence, Dana Gould conceived of and began recording a show of his own.” The timeline was a bit off but like a human baby, nine months later, Dana Gould has started a podcast. Was Joe the butterfly wing flap whose winds set in motion what became The Dana Gould Show? Maybe! It can be argued (and it will be, [...]
