    Ep. 78: The Comedy Co-op & Sociocracy

    Ep. 78: The Comedy Co-op & Sociocracy

    Just a bit over a few weeks ago, a mysterious entity only known as The Comedy Co-op was announced as a group that sought to make comedy better on nearly early level for performers, fans, and people working in comedy.

    That was about all when knew back then, but they've slowly pulled back the curtain over the weeks explaining exactly who they are (including their ever burgeoning Steering Committee) and what they're about (as well as what sociocracy is). This week's TCB Field Report has Jake Kroeger get even a deeper explanation how they're trying to break some of the more debilitating cycles in the art of comedy with The Comedy Co-op's very own Blake Wilding, Yaki Margulies, and Nikki Osborne (and a special guest appearance/explanation from Jessica Zepeda).

    Also, "hot" takes on the Emmys, The Comedy Store Records, Kathryn Hahn as Joan Rivers, and NYC venues vs. New York City.

    Ep. 77: Chase Bernstein & Letting Go

    Ep. 77: Chase Bernstein & Letting Go

    Chase Bernstein. Perhaps, the guest we have the best chemistry with on The Comedy Bureau Field Report? You judge for yourself as Chase and TCB's Jake Kroeger delightfully run through the news of the passing of Norm MacDonald, season renewals of Only Murders in the Building and The Amber Ruffin Show, and Jim Breuer refusing to perform at venues that require proof of vaccination. Chase also details the virtue of really just not giving an "F" and the freedom of it when doing comedy.

    Ep. 76: DeAnne Smith & Transplanting Again

    Ep. 75: Kelly McInerney & The New Landscape of Comedy

    Ep. 75: Kelly McInerney & The New Landscape of Comedy

    There is a vast new landscape to comedy as things may or may not continue to open up for live comedy here in the U.S. and across the world. Navigating this new world of comedy is, it would seem, as daunting as starting over, which is why we talk to LA staple Kelly McInerney about how she is figuring her way through a scene she already knew (and possibly looking across the pond to the UK for more opportunity). She's also reviewed movies while stoned on the podcast she co-hosts, IMDWeed, leading to what movies they've missed out on watching high (2001: A Space Odyssey?!?). Finally, "hot" takes on Ms. Pat getting an hour special, What We Do in the Shadows' After the Shadows, Steve Harvey getting his own court show. 

    Follow Kelly @hollyweirdo on IG and Twitter and listen to IMDWeed wherever you get your podcasts.

    Ep. 74: Julie Seabaugh & 9/11 Jokes

    Ep. 74: Julie Seabaugh & 9/11 Jokes

    For our money, Julie Seabaugh is the preeminent comedy journalist out in the world and we're so lucky to have her on TCB Field Report this week. Her expertise and depth of comedy knowledge are so far reaching, which came in quite handy for the upcoming documentary she co-directed, Too Soon: Comedy After 9/11. As such, we talk about the effect 9/11 had on comedy and, conversely, how comedy's healing properties dealt with the aftermath (not unlike what's happening right now). Also, "hot" takes on SF Sketchfest returning, Showtime's updated comedy slate, and Brody Stevens Day.

    Follow Julie on IG @julieseabaugh, get more info on Too Soon: Comedy After 9/11 (premiering on Vice on Sept. 8th) at toosoondoc.com and get a Brody Stevens pin from Rockin Pins here.

    Ep. 73: Mikala Knezevich & Working the Comedy Matrix

    Ep. 73: Mikala Knezevich & Working the Comedy Matrix

    Going from coast to coast more than once, Mikala Knezevich has built quite the reputation for producing comedy. She got the comedy bug after seeing one live comedy show and then asking for a job at the comedy club that very night and just wanted to be in and around comedy at all times. That has led her to taking on a plethora of shows in NYC, many of which are weekly. If you know the ins and outs of the production side of live comedy, which Mikala and TCB's Jake Kroeger go into here, you ought to know that it's such an ambitious undertaking to do one weekly show. Thus, you'll be delightfully surprised to discover that Mikala paints as well. 

    Also, "hot" takes on the NY Comedy Festival, What We Do In the Shadows getting renewed, and Wyatt Cenac's deal at Warner Animation/Cartoon Network Studios.
