Comedy News for Feb. 27 to March 5, 2023

Joe Rogan landed his Comedy Mothership in Austin finally this week, after two years of planning.

Just in time for SXSW 2023? Not exactly, although that festival does have a bunch of comedy planned around the heart of Texas this coming week. All that, plus fallout from Russell Brand’s promotional tour, Chris Rock’s first-ever live Netflix special, Sue Costello’s federal lawsuit against Paramount Global and CBS, and all of the new stand-up specials that keep on coming at us in 2023.

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