………      2. Behind The Pen Not many writers can break into Hollywood and land work on quality shows like Key and Peele, Rick and Morty, and Community all in one break-neck streak, but Alex Rubens is batting a thousand. Rubens admits a perfect mixture of lucky and good has produced a lot of laughs for the New York native, and with season 5 (or 4b) of Key & Peele starting July 8th and season 2 of Rick and Morty coming July 26th, now seemed like an appropriate time to talk to Alex about how he broke into his comedy career and what he has in store for the future.

  1. Comedy Doc.
Given the title — and its being dedicated to Robin Williams — you’d think Kevin Pollak’s documentary “Misery Loves Comedy” would just jump right in with the question: What do comics think about the role their own dark sides play in their success? But it’s not until the 75-minute mark that Pollak really brings up the subject, largely sticking to lighter territory with his impressive roster of 50-plus subjects — comics, mostly, some actors, and a few surviving relatives. How did people get their start? (Early.) Were they class clowns? (Yes.) for more on this story click the link below. Click here

    3. Death Of A Comedian 

Here’s an ironic twist to the title of Owen McCafferty’s play, presented in association with the Lyric Belfast and the Abbey Dublin. It deals with a raw, talented young standup, Steve, who makes a Faustian bargain with fame and, in the process, sells his soul and dilutes his talent. Much as I enjoyed it, it has the black-and-white simplicity of a morality play. For more details of this article from Micheal Billington of the Guardian click the link below.
