Netflix #StreamTeamThis afternoon, I sat-in on a discussion about the growing number of Stand-Up Specials that will be rolling out on Netflix in the coming year. Hannibal Buress, John Mulaney and Patton Oswalt threw down some thoughts on working with Netflix on their latest specials - Oswalt largely equating the readily-available library as being like "albums on a shelf" - You want to see it, and there it is. This Spring, four new titles will join that virtual shelf, with details and premiere dates for specials by Buress, Jimmy Carr, Theo Von and Oswalt ready to roll out. Check out a preview...

Those who know me are usually aware of my dislike for door-to-door solicitors and telemarketers. They're scummy professions in my eyes (don't call my cell, don't ring my bell - maybe I should trademark that!), so I love it when there's an opportunity to fight back... with a little humor, of course. On December 4, Metal Blade Records will unleash TERRORIZING TELEMARKETERS: VOLUME 6, the latest collection of phone-based retaliation from JIM FLORENTINE and DON JAMIESON. Available via iTunes, Amazon, and the like, physical CDs will be available exclusively at live shows. Check out "In a Pickle..."

In THE FLUFFY MOVIE, comedian GABRIEL IGLESIAS (currently seen on ABC's CRISTELA) performs his hilarious stand-up act in one of the fluffiest movies ever made. Sporting one of his iconic Hawaiian shirts, Gabriel Iglesias traveled the nation in his “Unity Through Laughter” tour and didn’t fail to entertain with jokes about food, weight loss, his trip to India, and his son. In celebration of the THE FLUFFY MOVIE’s home release, Universal Studios Home Entertainment and THE ROCK FATHER have teamed-up to get one (1) lucky read hooked-up with the Blu-ray + DVD + Digital HD Combo Pack. Check out 7 of Gabriel Iglesias' Top Jokes below, and get those entries in!

Funny enough, I've been doing my annual 31 Days of Halloween here on THE ROCK FATHER for eighteen days now, and today of all days, I didn't have an entry scheduled. While I may have goofed, the internet Gods shined upon me this evening with an out-of-the-darkness email from a rep for Chicago band, COMMON SHINER, pointing me in the direction of their new music video, "Social Mediasochist." Imagine for a moment that the John Hughes-inspired world of NOT ANOTHER TEEN MOVIE was placed in a blender with every slasher film from about 1980 'til now. See what the students of Wes Craven's Slasher High School are up to in the new video, directed by Zoran Gvojic of Lowcarbcomedy...

Comedy Dynamics will release Dr. Katz Live via digital audio on iTunes, Amazon, and all other digital retailers on October 21st.

Fans of Squigglevision rejoice- the doctor is back in! Dr. Katz Live, is a stage performance (recorded in January of 2008) of the Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist animated sitcom. The show was staged with the amazing original cast that included Laura Silverman as his bored receptionist and Jon Benjamin as his son, Ben. BJ Novak, Eugene Mirman, and Andy Kindler appear as the guest star patients, and show co-creator Tom Snyder shows up as Dr. Katz’ personal therapist. Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist was a wildly successful, innovative, and hilarious show on Comedy Central that ran for six seasons and popularized the Squigglevision animation style. In it, Jonathan Katz performed as the therapist to a host of big name comics coming to terms with their neuroses.

Covered: THE HELL takes on NICKELBACK (Comedy)

Written by

NICKELBACK will forever be a platinum-selling whipping post for internet jockeys and snark-meisters that can't get enough shots fired at Chad Kroeger and Co. The latest bomb tossed in their sonic direction comes courtesy of THE HELL, who have covered the 2001 hit, "How You Remind Me," to new levels of perfection and glory. Watch and listen below...

The Rock Father is a 2014 Member of the NETFLIX Stream TeamAfter kicking around for over a decade, TRAILER PARK BOYS are back for an eighth season, this time as a NETFLIX Original. Bubbles, Ricky and Julian - perhaps Canada's best-known trailer-dwelling misfits  - just stopped by JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE! last night to discuss the new season of the show, along with the highlight of their West Coast jaunt, meeting Bigg Snoop Dogg himself.

Check out a clip from Kimmel, along with the TRAILER PARK BOYS Season 8 Trailer below, right here on THE ROCK FATHER: #ForGrownups...

5168T9IMoQL. SY300 Comedy Dynamics will release Dennis Miller’s new stand-up CD and digital album America 180 on iTunes, Amazon, and at most physical and digital retailers and streaming outlets on June 17, 2014 to coincide with the worldwide television premiere of the special of the same name on EPIX.

In his first comedy special for EPIX, Miller examines the current state of our Union. From the antics of those running Washington, to the blunders of President Obama’s healthcare initiative, to our wild efforts to save the planet one light bulb at a time, his take on today’s America is both hysterical and painfully right on target. Dennis Miller: America 180° was taped at the Barclay Theatre in Irvine, California.

The time has come. On May 13, Australian beard enthusiasts, bearded comedians and beard rockers, THE BEARDS will release their latest record, THE BEARD ALBUM. While pre-orders are growing like facial hair (fast and furry) on both iTunes and Amazon, the folks at The AV Club have begun streaming THE BEARD ALBUM in it's entirety via Soundcloud. So, you can go there for your bearded music fix, or just stream the luxurious new BEARDS album in the very same Soundcloud player below. I won't tell anyone if you don't...

SingleI've featured comedian Jon LaJoie a few times over the years, most notably with this NSFW slice of awesome (that I still listen to) and his 2008 jam, "Stay at Home Dad." He gets better all the time, and his latest effort is about licensing... getting a song in a National commercial. I feel it. I was in a National spot once (Wendy's), and with the music industry being pretty messed-up, scoring a commercial gig of any kind is a great way to pay the bills. LaJoie thinks he has the perfect song for a product... any product. Seriously, anything can be sold with his new song. Check out the video for "Please Use This Song" below...

David SpadeStand-Up Month finishes strong when David Spade returns to Comedy Central with the world premiere of his new one-hour stand-up special, “David Spade: My Fake Problems,” debuting on Sunday, May 4 at 10:00 p.m. For fans that can’t wait to catch Spade’s new material, the special is available now, one week ahead of the on-air premiere, on CC: Stand-Up Direct.
