Comedian Al Madrigal is getting ready to debut his first one-hour stand-up special on Comedy Central when Al Madrigal: Why Is The Rabbit Crying?, premiere's on Friday, April 26 at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT. The special finds the celebrated stand-up comedian, The Daily Show correspondent, and LA family man (he hosts the MINIVAN MEN podcast alongside Maz Jobrani and Chris Spencer - a group that admits that none of them actually own a minivan, which is appreciated.) bringing his act to The Moody Theater in Austin, telling the hilarious true tales of Coach Frankie, the Cholo soccer dad; a fun afternoon with “Liam Neeson,” the cleaning lady; and the joys of parenting.

This is a Giveaway for Grownups. Oh, you weren't aware that I have a "For Grownups" section here on The Rock Father? Well, now you know. This is The Pop Culture  Website for Families that Rock... and that means the whole family... kids and grownups alike. I don't feature a lot of the grownups content here on the mainpage, but today I've got a giveaway from Comedy Central that's getting a little mainstream infiltration. DRUNK TEXTS TO MYSELF is the debut Comedy Album from TREVOR MOORE, better-known as one of The Whitest Kids U’ Know. The album features a lot of musical comedy (proper review forthcoming), but I have an extra copy to giveaway, so you now have a chance to own it...

A copy of Amy Schumer's new DVD, MOSTLY SEX STUFF recently arrived here at Rock Father HQ, and while I haven't had a chance to watch it just yet (I'm taking care of the little ones most of the time)... I've seen enough clips to know that I'm looking forward to it. That said, the folks at Comedy Central and I have decided to get two lucky readers hooked up with copies of the new disc, right here in my semi-secret Comedy Section in the "For Grownups" corner of The Rock Father. It ain't family-friendly, but Mommy and Daddy deserve some late-night laughs!

DVDIt'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!

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.
