Joel McHale has starred in big-budget movies and headlined one of the most critically-acclaimed television comedies of its era. He regularly pops up on late-night talk shows to banter with the host. He has hosted ESPN’s ESPY Awards. With a quick wit and charm to match, it’s no wonder McHale has risen to such heights.
And yet, despite critical adoration and commercial success, McHale iterates he was, is and will remain true to stand-up comedy. In fact, despite his time on the big and small screens, he never really abandoned the format in the first place.
“I never really left the road,” said McHale, who will performs two shows apiece on January 26 and 27 at the Houston Improv. “I’ve been doing this straight since 2004.

It’s not like I dropped everything and said, ‘I’m finally returning to stand-up.’ As if anyone wo..

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.

Comedian Lee Kyle has tried to buck the trend of TV-famous comedians touring the UK by setting up his own UK tour. Kyle's 32-date tour, entitled 'Folly - Because why should you have to be famous to tour?', starts in Heaton on January 4 and currently ends on June 21 in South Shields.
Kyle explains here: "At the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe, Lee Kyle got a really nice review. The bit that stuck in his mind was that 'It would be good to see him find more of his audience. "Yeah" he thought "It bloody would!"
So, in a moment of madness, he has decided to bite off more than he can chew and has booked a 30+ date national tour, as an attempt to answer the question "What happens if you do a tour while not actually being famous?"
Then, as if that wasn't enough, he is ending the tour with a gig in a 400-seat Customs House theatre in his home town of South Shields
He'll also be recording a documentary as he goes, while hoping not to regret it.
He's done a bit of telly..
