The Weekly Chuckler Round-up, brought to you by The Coca-Cola Company

A New York Times profile on Jackie Mason's last show on Broadway. Related: Andy Kindler doing Jackie Mason

Andrew "Dice" Clay is back and he'll be at the Keswick Theatre next Thursday: "before Chappelle and before South Park, there was "DICE" - with a scathing street style all his own, his battles to present obscenity and vulgarity as entertainment made him a comedy legend - truly one of the most original and controversial comics since Lenny Bruce!" Can someone puuhhleeze get us tickets? We don't want to actually pay. Let's hope he does his "what time is it?" joke about Philly!

Michael Ian Black interviewed on Ain't It Cool News.

Mike Schmidt, comedian and third chair for the first season of Jimmy Pardo's "Never Not Funny", is back with a podcast of his own: "40-Year-Old-Boy".

Finally a reason to watch the Hallmark Channel: Bob Newhart will star in 'Herb's Murders': "Newhart, 78, will play a Los Angeles detective who investigates a publisher's killing. It's a race against time: Herb has to solve the crime before dying of old age." Also, the Hallmark Channel is going to be airing 'The Golden Girls' episodes, so we're all set!

The Flight of the Conchords album will be released April 22nd. Mostly songs from the show, but still definitely worth picking up.

Jim Gaffigan is going out on a sexy tour, but won't be in Philadelphia. Boo.

Members of local improv group Tongue and Groove (amongst many other things) were interviewed live on the radio show Radio Times. Depending on the day that you read this, you may have to navigate to Thursday the 27th's show.

Brody Stevens and other doing comedy in a backyard. Brody's got big laminated versions of his photographs! "It's about energy!"

An interview with the best aspect of the Season 6 of Curb Your Enthusiasm: JB Smoove

is taping a new HBO special this weekend in California. He surely can't still be riding off of Church Lady and Garth, right? Right?!

Awesome collection of Charlie Rose interviews with comedians.

An interesting British documentary "Laughing With Hitler". Sez "Comedians deny their jokes have any power, but the fear oppressive regimes have of them shows that dictators certainly don’t believe that."
