The performances featured four improv teams and eight stand-up comedians, many of whom perform at The Improv Space in Westwood each month.

Sarah Silverman says comedian Louis CK masturbated in front of her with her consent

Sarah Silverman revealed on Monday that comedian Louis C.K. used to masturbate in front of her with her consent. “I don’t know if I’m going to regret saying this," Silverman told Howard Stern during his SiriusXM radio show, according to Variety. She continued: "I’ve known Louis forever, I’m not making excuses for him, so please don’t take this that way. We are peers. We are equals.

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..

Joel McHale is On the Neverending Tour

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. I’m a workaholic and have OCD, and I love doing it, so I never stop. People always assume when I come to town that I’m starting a tour, but in reality, the tour never stopped. It’s not like I dropped everything and said, ‘I’m finally returning to stand-up.’ As if anyone wo..

Vic and Bob, interview: 'What do modern comedians do? Do they just tell long,...

Vic and Bob are bringing their Big Night Out back to the BBC. The Christmas special, which will be followed by a four-part series, includes a jaunty song about trousers, a skit on First Dates, a punch-up, Ed Sheeran, some “observation comedy” and a baker from Wisconsin selling “perfuffle” cakes. You should see the stuff that didn’t make the edit, says Vic. “There were some spectacular moments, like when we tried to get a horse on the stage.” A horse? “We wanted to look under it and see what was going on,” says Bob, casually. “But the horse was a bit frisky. He wouldn’t go on.” He gestures at the BBC Comedy offices opposite. “You’d think there’d be someone out there who deals with horses.” “We’ll say, ‘what shall we write a song about? Blackberries? Chinese parrots?’ Then Jim says ‘trousers’ and we both laugh our heads off” It is 30 years – or thereabouts – since Vic Reeves (real name Jim Moir) and Bob Mortimer teamed up, so when the BBC asked them for a one-off special, they decided to..
