Episode #173: Dormtainment

Chaz Miller, Cameron Miller, and Amanuel Richards are one half of the sketch comedy group Dormtainment, who formed in Atlanta in 2009. They went straight from college to YouTube, and over the next eight years, amassed one million YouTube subscribers, a Comedy Central web series called Six Guys One Car, two albums on the Billboard comedy charts, and a live show that’s a hit on college campuses. They’ve now joined Kevin Hart for his new online venture, the Laugh Out Loud Network, where they produce and star in the satire of National Geographic called Black Geo. They invited me...

Second semester, crazier than the first on HBO’s Vice Principals

If you wondered whether Vice Principals could recapture the same lunacy that marked its first season on HBO, then allow me to remind you that Danny McBride and his usual crazy comedy team of Jody Hill and David Gordon Green filmed both seasons back-to-back two years ago. So they not only didn’t take into account your reactions to season one, but also: They didn’t care.

Ren & Stimpy documentary goes Indiegogo!

Well, the folks putting together Happy Happy Joy Joy – The Ren & Stimpy Story done gone and cancelled their original Kickstarter campaign, despite raising more than $100,000. “Our end goal was overly ambitious,” executive producer Ron Cicero tells The Comic’s Comic, and as we all know, on Kickstarter, any crowdfunding campaign is either all or nothing!
