Ready, Set, Laug

Chances are if you are a die-hard comedy fan, you love all forms of comedy regardless of the format, so long as it gives you a good hard case of the shits and giggles. Some fans do prefer certain formats to others, of course; stand-up, for example, is favored by......

A Spider-Man That Doesn't Bite

Last year, while Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark was still struggling with cast injuries and technical problems delaying its big splashy Broadway launch, some enterprising Off-Broadway writers and actors decided enough was enough. "In response to big wasteful Broadway money-sucking mega-musicals that emphasize spectacle over story," they said, "we launched......

Two White Chicks Sitting Around Talking Funny

San Diego Comic-Con 2011: The Walking Dead is Back, With A Vengeance
