Comedy News for March 21-26, 2023

What do you mean The Friars Club has closed for good, again?!

Sad but true news about the once-legendary second home for funny people, plus happier news about Adam Sandler accepting the Mark Twain Prize in an all-star tribute on CNN, finally some guest-hosting dates for the correspondents on The Daily Show, plus all of last week’s industry news, and the latest batch of new stand-up specials to hit the Internets.

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!
