Student comics at the Winter Welcome Comedy Show joked about New Years’ resolutions, college and self-identity.
“Everything I want to do this year makes me an objectively worse person,” said Pippa Spindel, a second-year cognitive science student who performed during the show.
Shenanigans Comedy Club hosted the quarterly show in the Humanities Building on Friday night. Shenanigans began hosting the shows the first week of each quarter to perform alongside different comedy groups on campus around five years ago, said Salma Zaky, the vice president of the club and a third-year English student.
The performances featured four improv teams and eight stand-up comedians, many of whom perform at The Improv Space in Westwood each month. Each group meets and practices separately, but they all came together in one lecture hall to kick off a quarter of comedy.
Business Casual, a self-made group of three students, hosted the evening. After leaving a networking event on campus one nig..

Puppy love played a role in Nathan Macintosh’s career as a comedian. It turned out, however, the girl he used to moon over was into his sense of humor, but was unfortunately oblivious to his overall charm.
“I first learned I might be able to do comedy when I was a kid and made a girl I had a huge crush on laugh,” Macintosh said. “It felt amazing. She ended up dating some grease bag, so I also learned I had to work harder.”
Macintosh, who hails from Canada, did just that and wound up performing at such events as the Halifax Comedy Festival and the prestigious Just for Laughs Comedy Festival. He also had his own spec..

What does Martin Short think about touring with Steve Martin? The comedian has an insult all sharpened up and ready to go.
“Hanging out with Steve is like the movie ‘Deliverance,’” he deadpans. “It’s all fun and games until the banjos come out.”
Then Short erupts into laughter. And so does Martin.
It’s just another day of insults and witty banter for these two amigos.

Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome the host of the Laugh Track column, a man who can't find his keys ... Mike McIntyre.
Thank you Cleveland. Did you hear that a U.S. spy satellite launched aboard a SpaceX rocket is now lost? It's worth billions, and they just can't find it? You're telling me my iPhone can be located with an app, but a multibillion-dollar spy satellite can't?
OK, I lose a lot of stuff, so let me offer some help. Have you tried retracing the satellite's steps? Make sure you check the last place you remember it being. Think real hard: If you were a spy satellite, where would you be?
If all of that fails, pray to St. Anthony.

Inside every conspiracy theorist is a person who desperately wants to be thought of as smart and kind, and is angry they’re not seen that way. That, and also someone who’s bored.
Story Continued Below
That’s the read, at least, from Jordan Klepper, the comedian who’s spent the past three months hosting the Alex Jones-style parody “The Opposition” on Comedy Central, working hard to get into the heads of all the conspiracy theorists—including President Donald Trump himself—who’ve latched on to tales of illegal voters and the “deep state” and media witch hunts.
It’s a position that he believes has given him insight into how Trump thinks, Klepper told me in an interview for the latest episode of POLITICO’s Off Message podcast. “As a human, there are two things that I am desperately scared of: I’m desperately afraid of being called unkind and I’m desperately afraid of being called not smart,” Klepper said. And i..
Jerry Seinfeld and his funny friends have found a new favorite coffee spot.
Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, the web series created by Jerry Seinfeld in 2012, has made the move from Crackle to Netflix in anticipation of an upcoming tenth season, and you can check out the trailer for Netflix's new arrival now.
The show, if you're not familiar with it, is precisely what the title makes it sound like, which hopefully doesn't come as too much of a surprise. Also, it's pretty good! It's a credit to Seinfeld, a fabulously rich person for whom life is but a dream, that he's been able to take the luxurious and leisurely concept of famous people casually cruising around in some immensely expensive whips and make it surprisingly watchable, producing a relaxing little hangout show that's something like the visual version of a one-on-one podcast between professional comics.
The series' move from Crackle to Netflix was originally announced in January 2017,..
Former President Barak Obama will be David Letterman's guest on the premiere of Dave's comeback interview show premiering Friday Jan. 12 on Netflix.
Letterman, who left his CBS "Late Show" in May 2015, will do a one-hour conversation every month with one guest on the show called "My Next Guest Needs No Introduction With David Letterman." Letterman, 70, signed a deal last summer to do six episodes for Netflix, reportedly for $2 million per show.
Clooney – an actor and activist who was a frequent visitor to Letterman's CBS show – was the first of six guests mentioned in a promotional trailer for the Netflix show released last week.
The others were named in this order: Pakistani activist Malala Yousafza, radio host Howard Stern, hip-hop mogul Jay-Z, actress/comedian/TV producer Tiny Fey and Obama.
