I never used to be a big fan of LISA LAMPANELLI, but I've really grown to like her based on THE CELEBRITY APPRENTICE. Likely fueled by the mainstream exposure, Warner Bros is releasing EQUAL OPPORTUNITY OFFENDER: The Best Of Lisa Lampanelli on April 17th. The comedy album will be available on both CD and Digital formats, while Newbury Comics is offering autographed pre-orders. If you'd like a NSFW preview, check it out below.
That's right, true believers - RIZE OF THE FENIX (pre-order it now on iTunes!), already hailed as ''The Greatest Album Ever Recorded by Anyone Ever'' by EXTRA's Maria Menounos, is coming to fine record emporiums nationwide on May 15th. The long-awaited comeback album by Kyle Gass and Jack Black, collectively known as the mighty TENACIOUS D, will demand to be a member of your audio listening collection. The Rock Father has the first music video for To Be The Best (featuring BATMAN FOREVER star Val Kilmer, along with old folks favorite Josh Groban and FOO FIGHTERS overlord Dave Grohl) along with a stream of the title track - Rize of the Fenix - below.

There's a lot of people out there that aren't gonna ''get'' T.J. MILLER's new album, THE EXTENDED PLAY E.P. At 41 tracks and over an hour in length, it's not only not an E.P. - but it's not the standup comedy that he's known for, either. With this album, Miller enters the dangerous world of musical comedy.

The beauty of DOUG BENSON is his ability to instantly mesh with his audience through a casual delivery that never once sounds forced. Now, there's a good chance that the weed plays a big role in this, as you can hear the smile on Benson's face as if he's a smoking buddy taking a hit from the bong and giving you some humorous commentary as he exhales a hefty blast of THC-enhanced second-hand smoke into the air of a small room that probably lacks proper ventilation. There's a chance you've known such a guy in your lifetime, though a few of you may not fess up to it.

You know him from THE DAILY SHOW with JON STEWART, and now comedian WYATT CENAC has his first-ever stand-up special in release. Out this week on DVD, CD, and digital download via Comedy Central Records, COMEDY PERSON (reviewed from CD) is an hour of the freshest comedy around - and not just because it's only been available for 24 hours.

MARC MARON is the type of comedian that appeals to me for the simple fact that he seems a bit curmudgeonlyhimself. Sure, he's pushing 50 (the new 30, I've heard) and being a tad on the grumpy side might be more acceptable at that age, but the reality is - he's right about his topics.
