Just two months since the release of his 41-track, EXTENDED PLAY E.P., comedian T.J. MILLER is already back on store shelves - this time with NO REAL REASON, his first-ever stand-up special. Taped in his former home state of Colorado (where he lived before getting smart and moving to Chicago, prior to pussing out and moving to L.A.) and released by Comedy Central, NO REAL REASON captures theLEGENDofKARL doing what he does best - making people laugh (except for the lady that gets up mid-show to call him an ''inconsiderate f*ck.'').

For those that caught the Comedy Central Roast of Donald Trump last week, many were wondering just who the hell ANTHONY JESELNIK was when he was first introduced as one of the comics on the dais. After a devastating performance that included a slam on JERSEY SHORE "star" Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino" having AIDS, one thing was made crystal clear: Anthony Jeselnik is one funny motherf'r.
