Marlon Wayans has launched a new comedy website, What The Funny, featuring original videos and content from YouTube stars like Todrick Hall. You can call it an “urban” version of FunnyorDie. I thought World Star Hip Hop was already filling that void, but I like the idea that is another place for content created and produced by black people is getting shine (no pun intended).
Speaking of comedy, check out Tracy Morgan’s new comedy special on Comedy Central, Bonafide. It is hilarious!
Lastly, I founded a stand-up comedy show Chicks and Giggles in 2004. The show ended in 2008, but there will be a special anniversary show on Sunday, May 18th at Littlefield in Brooklyn. The line-up is stellar with Ophira Eisenberg, Carolyn Castiglia, Nichelle Stephens, Erin and Her Cello, Jessica Delfino, Jacquetta Szathmari, Kambri Crews, Abbi Crutchfield, Livia Scott and Michelle Buteau. Tickets are $5 in advance and $8 at the door.
