On the Scene: Seth Rogen's Hilarity for Charity benefit

Alzheimer’s? The worst. Seth Rogen, wife Lauren Miller, and their crew of charity-loving comedians getting together for an Alzheimer’s research benefit? The best.

Miller’s own mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s at age 55, which inspired Miller and her husband to find a way to educate more people about the disease. They created Hilarity for Charity to bring Alzheimer’s awareness to younger crowds, and, more concretely, to fund Alzheimer’s research and donate resources to families struggling with it.  READ FULL STORY

SXSW: Comedian Doug Benson and friends take on 'Big Trouble In Little China'

Depending on your perspective, comedian Doug Benson is either best known as a movie aficionado (he hosts the hit podcast Doug Loves Movies) or as a comedic hero to weed smokers everywhere (he directed the hilarious documentary Super High Me and recently launched a video podcast called Getting Doug With High that features him getting stoned with comic friends).

The former was on display on the last day of the annual South By Southwest festival when Benson hosted Doug Benson’s Movie Interruption at the Alamo Draft House Ritz in Austin. The Movie Interruption is a simple premise: Benson screens a movie, and he and a few cohorts sit with live microphones and riff on the film — not unlike a live, improvised version of Mystery Science Theater 3000.

Love cover star Louis C.K.? Check out these up-and-coming comics

This week’s cover star Louis C.K. is often referred to as a comedian’s comedian, the kind of guy who considers the stand-up form sacred and takes his form and craft very seriously. In carving out his own personal area of the comedy world (one worth millions of dollars without a short term loan), he has not only cast himself as a singularity but also paved the way for a new wave of dynamic stand-ups who have thrived in today’s multi-platform environment mostly by tapping into their purest selves — just like Louis did.

So take a look at these five comics, all of whom seem ready to break out at a moment’s notice. You may not know them now… but you will. READ FULL STORY
