Comedy News For Jan. 30 – Feb. 5, 2023

Dave Chappelle made it 4 for 4 with yet another Grammy win for one of his Netflix specials, nabbing the Comedy Album of the Year prize at Sunday’s pre-telecast awards ceremony.

More on that, plus the viral video of a stand-up comedian falling offstage in Chicago that got everyone laughing over the weekend (was it staged, tho? so to speak!), the funniest episode of Saturday Night Live in far too long, a rundown of all the new stand-up specials that got released into the wild, plus the comedy industry news you need to know to stay in the know.

All in this week’s dispatch From The Comic’s Comic, available as an email if you subscribe to Piffany!
