Aziz Ansari to headline Madison Square Garden on new dates added to his “Modern Romance” tour

Aziz Ansari has announced new dates for his current stand-up comedy tour, “Modern Romance,” which also is fueling his mega-million book deal with Penguin on the subject, but the big news in comedy circles is that his dates in New York City, D.C., Houston, Dallas, Philadelphia and Las Vegas are arena-sized.

Last Comic Standing 2010 winner Felipe Esparza calls out Karlous Miller, Last Comic 2014 semifinalist, over Mexican insurance joke

Felipe Esparza‘s birthday wish probably isn’t to have another comedian doing a bit on TV that’s similar to his own. Especially when the bit is done by a contestant on season 8 of Last Comic Standing.

Dave Chappelle relives 2004 with David Letterman in 2014

How long has it been since Dave Chappelle left his Comedy Central series, Chappelle’s Show? Long enough that in his first appearance on Late Show with David Letterman in a decade, Chappelle joked to Letterman that he just says to Comedy Central that he hasn’t quit. “I am seven years late for work.” Which would have been a valid excuse three years ago? But since it has been so long since the events that transpired in 2004, and because we haven’t seen Chappelle collectively as a national broadcast network-watching audience since then, Letterman had him revisit the whole saga...
