    Dave Chappelle lights up Comedy Works -- with more shows to go

    With nine shows down and three more to go, Dave Chappelle has been running a comedy marathon this week at Comedy Works.

    Dave Chappelle and Flight of the Conchords get weird at Fiddler's Green

After absorbing three comedy festivals in four weeks, there must have been a lot of chuckle-trimmed abs that got another workout last night. Because closing out this season of the wit was Dave Chap ... More >>

    Homophobia in popular culture began to fade in the '70s, and for the most part was dead and gone by the '90s. With music, it began with disco and was stomped to death by riot grrrl. In film it was exposed with Boys in the Band, and deemed passé with My Own Private Idaho. Art and fashion have been g ... More >>

    Dave Chappelle's "meltdown" was more Bill Burr than Michael Richards

    A week into his comeback tour, Dave Chappelle either had a "meltdown," was "booed off the stage," or was treated like a black-face minstrel by a crowd of "fucking animals" last Thursday in Hartford, Connecticut.

    Five famous musical muses: the women who inspire songs and movements and stir libidos

    ​With the recent passing of Suze Rotolo, Bob Dylan's first muse, we thought it only appropriate to give a shout out to a couple of other famous ladies. The muse position is demanding and the position can vary (physically and figuratively) -- it's not all about getting a song named after you. T ... More >>

    Watch Out, Kramer

    This April 20 blog recapped the strange experience of appearing on Nancy Grace's CNN jabber show -- and on April 24, I received a lovely parting gift from the producer who lined up the interview.
