Preview: CHRISTOPHER TITUS - VOICE IN MY HEAD

Written by

titusalbumComedy Central just released the new digital album, CHRISTOPHER TITUS: VOICE IN MY HEAD (now on iTunes), and tonight they're letting me give you a taste. They just hit my inbox with a pair of tracks from Titus' new comedy special, so check 'em out below... NSFW, or your kids. You have been warned. Just being polite and all... Religion and the Dodge Viper... what could go wrong?

If you're not one of the 32,283,281 people that have viewed "The Fox" by YLVIS on YouTube, then I ask: What are you waiting for? For those that have witnessed the song and video in all of it's majesty, you'll be happy to know the the song has just arrived on iTunes (go there, buy it now and The Rock Father will make a few pennies on the deal!) so you can bump it in the car, the boat, the woods, or wherever your mobile music device may roam. If you've been left out of the YLVIS craze, quite simply: they're like THE LONELY ISLAND, but Norwegian. Yes, the land that brought us Black Metal masters like BURZUM, GORGOROTH, IMMORTAL and EMPEROR, has now given the world a dose of glorious pop-comedy.

Watch: THE BEARDS perform at World Beard Day

Written by

Some people consider my long and luxurious goatee to be a "beard." That's cool if that's your thing, but I have rocked a full beard on occasion... just not recently. And while I won't be taking part in Movember (never do), I may well celebrate my own holiday of Goatober in a couple of weeks. I mean, if THE BEARDS can perform at an event called World Beard Day, surely the goatee needs a day or month, right? Check out THE BEARDS' Beard-riffic performance in it's entirety below...

owenbenOn Friday June 28th Comedy Central will premiere the first one-hour comedy special from Owen Benjamin when Owen Benjamin: High Five Til It Hurts airs  Midnight ET/PT. In the new special recorded with a live audience at The Moody Theater in Austin, TX, Benjamin breaks out the musical jams by riffing on TIMBALAND, EDDIE VEDDER, BEETHOVEN, and more... on piano.

I met Brian Posehn once. I went to see him at the late Zanies Comedy Club in Vernon Hills, Illinois, where I chatted with him briefly after the show and handed him a copy of a comic book that I'd written... and thought he might enjoy (being into metal and horror and all). Posehn is a funny guy... but he's also a Dad - a certified "Rock Father" in his own right - and now he's bringing life as a Heavy Metal Dad (speaking of which, you should enter this) into his act with THE FARTIST, a new stand-up special that made it's debut on Netflix earlier this year and comes to DVD and CD on June 25 via New Wave Dynamics.
