Comedy News for April 12-17, 2023

What is Spotify’s comedy philosophy, anyhow?

I may have asked the question in this week’s newsletter, but that doesn’t mean the answers come easily.

Also sad news to share, as Darryl Lenox died suddenly last week. He was only 57.

Plus the week’s industry news and notes, all of last week’s new comedy specials, and more. You know the drill by now, right?

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!
