10 Years of “This Is Fine” and comedy news Jan. 9-16, 2023

Did you know this cartoon of a dog about to be engulfed in flames is now a 10-year-old meme?

More on that (with reflections from the cartoonist), plus the Golden Globes, TCAs, WGA nominations, SXSW film announcements, two more bad sad men in comedy, Louis CK sold out MSG (!), and the usual round-up of the week’s comedy industry news, notes, and new specials out on video! All in my weekly dispatch From The Comic’s Comic, which gets delivered to your email if you’re a subscriber of my Substack: Piffany. Thanks!
