It's no secret that I like Anthony Jeselnik a lot, and having reviewed both his masterpiece SHAKESPEARE (here) and it's follow-up CALIGULA (here), he's been well-featured in the semi-secret Comedy Section in the "For Grownups" corner of The Rock Father. If for some reason you haven't seen his recent special (or have yet to buy it), the folks at Comedy Central have teamed with me to right that wrong. Two lucky readers are getting copies of CALIGULA on DVD!
This coming Tuesday, Comedy Central will release CHRIS HARDWICK: MANDROID, as an uncensored and extended CD/DVD/Digital Download. To prep for the release, the network has sent over a trio of preview clips, all of which can be viewed below. Look for James' review of MANDROID to be posted on The Rock Father next week. Until then, check out the preview clips along with the official press release below.
I bet you weren't aware that NickMom was blatantly copying The Rock Father when they decided to slide some NSFW standup comedy into the programming mix on Nick Jr. Actually, I did it the smart way - keeping the "Comedy For Grownups" hidden just out of sight from the family-friendly goodness of my main site, but easily within reach of parents who want to be entertained with all of the "offensive" comedy they can handle. NickMom just dropped their naughty bits directly in front of families expecting to see DORA THE EXPLORER and YO GABBA GABBA. Doing what I do, I can cover the comedic genius of ANTHONY JESELNIK without people starting petitions and jumping down my throat for "corrupting the children." With his new album, CALIGULA out this week on Comedy Central Records (I reviewed his 2010 release, SHAKESPEARE here), it's time to drop some more virtual ink on the one guy who can open a show with a "rape" joke and have it be ok.
The folks at Comedy Central are kicking off the New Year right with a quartet of new comedy albums (and DVDs) from some fantastic comics. Among the new releases on the way are Anthony Jeselnik Caligula CD and DVD - January 15th; Chris Hardwick Mandroid CD and DVD - January 22nd; Amy Schumer Mostly Sex Stuff digital download and DVD – January 29th; a and Eugene Mirman An Evening of Comedy from a Fake Underground Laboratory on CD/DVD – February 5th. Preview content from all four releases via the widget below!
ANTHONY JESELNIK is one of my favorite active stand-up comedians. His 2010 album entitled SHAKESPEARE (read my review here) still gets play here at Rock Father HQ (when the kids are in bed), and now there's finally some new material on the horizon. Jeselnik will return to Comedy Central for the world premiere of his original one-hour stand-up special, Anthony Jeselnik: Caligula, on Sunday, January 13th at 10pm. Check out the official announcement below...
