Comedy News for March 13-20, 2023

Who knows why the WWE waited until now to induct the late great comedian Andy Kaufman into their Wrestling Hall of Fame, but it’s happening at the end of this month!

News on that, plus Maximum Fun podcasting network is becoming a co-op; the Writers Guild of America is preparing its most intense contract negotiations since the strike of 2007; NBC and SNL have agreed to terms, meanwhile, to avoid a strike by the show’s film editors. All that, plus the week’s new comedy specials and late-night appearances, and all of the rest of the comedy news you need to know.

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!
