Joe Rogan has opened the Comedy Mothership, his new comedy club in Austin. Kill Tony will now record shows there.

Johnny Mac’s Ryan Hamilton bit takes a really awkward turn

Kyle Kinane announces a new special

Bert Kreischer’s special is out next week

The shark deck. Yo, what’s up? I’m Johnny Mack with your daily comedy news. Carrie Lake. Remember she ran for Arizona governor and lost, well, she’s leading the polls as to who could be Trump’s VP candidate. Stephen Colbert said she must have been so honored to have MAGA voters choose her as the next vice president.

They try to hang . Wow. Fallon, of course, since it’s Trump, he’ll make the decision after holding a Miss Vice President pageant,

Joe Rogan has opened his comedy club in Austin. It is called the Comedy Mother. Rogan took to the stage and said, you can’t fire me from my own club. The holler reporter has the story.

I’ll read their sentence verbatim because it’s perfect. Unasked sperm reads the poster held aloft by a woman standing outside the theater and you know you’re in the right place. Joe Rogan’s New Comedy Club Mecca.

Tickets for the opening week of shows went for $40 per person, which the Holly Reporter points out is surprisingly reasonable. They sold out without minutes and were being resold online for 500 bucks. Rogan on stage wearing quote, a rather odd obiwan like sweater.

Not sure what that means. And unfortunately, I couldn’t find a. Rogan said, I’m drunk and on mushrooms at my new club. This is as high as I’ve ever been on stage. I need to connect with this moment. You can’t fire me from my own club bitch.

We holler reporter ads. The venues theme is Aliens Meets Art Deco. The latter. A respectful nod to the remodeled theaters century Long history. There’s a U F O above the door in the lobby. Warnings that hecklers will be alienated and a Stargate like arch over the main stage. The theaters at Washington Black and Purple by Austin Comedy Standards.

It’s easily the coolest looking venue in town now. That’s neat. The opening stretch of shows is built as Joe Rogan and Friends. The first night included friends Ron Whites, who retired from comedy, or maybe he just retired from touring comedy, so he’s back baby Tim Dillon, who I love, Roseanne Barr and Tony Hinchcliffe, who’s bringing the Killed Tony Show to Joe’s Theater.

Tony Hinchcliffe led the audience in a game called Kanye or the Jew.

The Holly Reporter says The audience at attendance was pretty standard for Rogan shows, which means they over-index on the three Bs bros, beards, and ball caps. I’m getting the feeling the person who wrote this isn’t the biggest Joe Rogan fan. Aren’t you getting that kind of vibe? Within seconds? The first comic taking the stage, a gay slur was thrown out, followed by jokes about trans people.

The audience hooted for the anti cancell culture crowd. This is their new safe space.

Rogan did a q and A. He was asked how it felt having his club open. He said, it doesn’t feel real. I know it’s real, but it doesn’t feel real. I was super nervous today.

Joe, what’s your next milestone? I’m done with milestones. I think I just like risks. I’m like, oh yeah, let’s buy a building on a street filled with crack addicts. Like, I want someone to say no to me. They’re all like, okay, go ahead. Who is your dream podcast guest, Joe Rogan. He said, hunter Biden. I could turn this around for you.

If my dad had Alzheimer’s and I was doing Coke, I would’ve done the exact same stuff you did. I really want to get him on . Wow. Okay.

The venue has two rooms, a headliner room called Fatman, and a smaller stage called little.

Little boy and fat man were the bombs dropped on Japan at the end of World War ii, by the way.

There’s a bar named after Comedy Store co-founder, Mitzi Shore. That’s cool. Rogan said he is hired the best people from the Comedy store in LA to run the club.

They’re doing the yonder pouch thing. Oh, that’s annoying. No phones. Come on Joe. It’s Wednesday night. I just wanna go out for a drink and you’re gonna make me lock up my phone. Stop man. And all this stuff’s gonna get out anyway. Holly Reporter adds security is a bit intense as you have to get your face scanned like you’re going through airport security at Heathrow.

No thanks Joe. Don’t want to go. I’ll stay home. It’s fine. The staff is numerous and friendly. The floor seating feels rat or cramped, however, and in a move that feels outdated. The venue has the old school comedy club to drink minimum. , Roseanne Barr said, I want to thank Joe for building this wonderful mothership for comedians.

It’s so great in the green room with everybody up there being drunk and smoking pot. Just like at the Comedy store when Mitzi Shore was still alive and comedy was effing king. and then she went ear. After 30 years of fighting ABC to have black writers and black characters on my show, and then having the same effing ARDS turn around called me a racist.

It really effing pissed me off. Not sure what that had to do with the opening of the club, but Okay.

If nothing else, it’ll sure be interesting. Jimmy Kimmel is hosting the Oscars on Sunday. People, did an interview with him and asked him about the second most infamous thing that happened on the Oscars. Remember when the wrong best picture winner was announced on live tv? Kimmel said, in some ways, it feels like an episode of a TV show I watched and then put out of my head.

It was a very intense and confusing end to what was otherwise pretty great.

He then talked about Slap Gate, saying it’s still shocking that that happened. To see something like that happen outside of the Mor Covid show is shocking. Tad reference there and then for it to happen on the Oscars, magnifies it by about a million times.

I think it’s something that everybody regrets and we’ll move past one day, it’ll be looked at in the same way as that guy running on stage naked is looked at a weird moment that we all talked about and hopefully we learn.

He commends Chris Rock. I mean to be slapped in the face and stay that cool something Chris should be proud of. Chris’s grandchildren, I hope, will still be proud of that when he’s dead and gone.

Huge news out of Eastern Idaho. Guess who’s playing B Y U Idaho tonight? That’s. Idaho’s own. Ryan Hamilton, everybody’s favorite comedian. Now this from the East Idaho News. Your home for comedy news, the 46 year old Ashton Man, Ryan Hamilton, who as you know is from Idaho, will be performing at B Y U Idaho this Friday, his second stop in eastern Idaho.

Since November, they had

Wait, pre-read the articles, Johnny Mac. This next sentence is horrific. I didn’t read this in advance. Oh my God. Hamilton suffered 10 broken ribs, a broken arm, and a punctured lung following an accident in January, 2022.

More than a year later, he still has some scars. This just took an awkward turn. Leave it.

Hamilton’s hold the East Idaho News. I’m able to do everything I used to do. I’m still working on physical therapy stuff, but I’m able to travel to the shows. I made a lot of progress. It was quite serious, but I’m doing okay. I’ve learned a lot. Oh my God, John pre-read these things. I thought we were just gonna have some fun with the Idaho bit,

and now I’ve just got this icky feeling of what did you step in here?

Hamilton hinted there could be another special coming in the near future. He said, I’d like to sell something sometime soon. We’ll see. It’s been a while. I feel like I’m ready to put something out. We’ll keep you posted, but hopefully soon if you haven’t watched his first special, which I think is on Netflix, you really should.

It’s really fantastic, and I don’t know if it’s his first special, his most recent special, let me put it that way, before I start getting emails from the Ryan Hamilton mafia, being like, dude, you said it was his first special. It’s obviously his third special. Should I just Google it and find out? Let’s do that and get this outta the.

I am on Ryan Hamilton’s, I M D B. I’ve learned here. He’s Ryan Hamilton the third. He is known for the Oscars 2022, the comedian 2016, and inside Amy Schumer 20.

He appeared in one episode of Life and Beth

In 20 sixteens, the comedian starring Robert De Niro,

Ryan Hamilton, played Ryan Ham.

From Wikipedia. His first one hour special Happy Face became available on Netflix on August 29th, 2017. Wow. It’s that long ago. That one’s really.

Oh wow. Personal life. Hamilton resides in New York City in January of 2022. Ryan was hit by a shuttle bus as a pedestrian at LAX airport, and that’s where he suffered the 10 broken ribs. He recovered at his family home in Idaho. You ever feel like you started out to do a bit and you got.

In sports we call timeout. So I think I’m gonna step out of the huddle, look at the ref, and make a tea with my hands being right back.

Boy, that was awkward, wasn’t it? Kyle Canine has a new special coming out March 15th for 10 bucks. Or if you’re cheap like me, wait till March 30th and he’ll stream it for.

Here’s the log line. Kyle Canan, who is fantastic by the way. Kyle Canan is a wild man poet. He’s been laughing at anti-vaxxers for some time. To their baseless claim that vaccines cause autism. He responds effing good. We probably need more autistic kids. They’re the ones that keep beating robots at chess.

It’s this type of serious thinking about our collective future that makes this new standup special shocks Andres perfect for our current. To him, dinosaurs were God’s little tricksters.

And a foreskin is the devil’s calamari using his unique pars, the beloved comedian transforms our dull world into an emporium of the weird and wonderful. Kyle recently bought a van, a car that fits his look of someone who should be at home plotting to kidnap a Democratic governor.

Wow. And hit the road to Jehovah’s Witnesses spits around the country with his gruff voice. Jel Harton Ill faded. Confidence about hotel buffets, Kyle delivers an hour of keen commentary and messy a. He wonders how his pillows turn that color. He explains the way to make everyone in a cruise ship hot tub immediately uncomfortable, and he marvels at pilots who aren’t intimidated by the hundreds of buttons and airplane cockpits, all of which should be labeled, don’t die. That’s a pretty funny copy. . He’s fantastic. And now I feel like I got it.

I’m glad I called that time out. Right now we’re rocking. First down, Johnny M. Let’s keep going. All right, on three, Kyle Kana is himself a skilled pilot of comedy. In fact, he’s like a comedy blue angel jar and diving tick. Big risks and pulling off tricks. Bet ER’s special will be out next week as well.

This one called Bet Kreer. Razzle dazzle. It is his third special in his special bet Kreer spills in a riots of set on bodily emissions being bullied by his kids and the explosive end to his family’s escape room outing Bet Kreischer Razzled Dazzle Streaming March 14th.

Let’s take a look at the shows. Pretty light night. One Variety. Power of comedy is at eight o’clock, three hours long,

and this is more of an awards thing now. Some of the people getting awards, Chelsea handle. , Bob Odenkirk. Pat Oswald. So it’s kind of cool, but like, I don’t know, it doesn’t sound fun, if that makes sense.

The comedy keynote has just this weird title, Zac versus Z X Z W. My God, what is this? Poly crisis, A comedy keynote in 12 volumes. The bit is celebrity philosopher Slav off zec, unpacks to sex, and then interrogates the collapse of collapse as a social construct. Boy, boy, this is in Deep, but it’s Jamesian Anthony Hamik, Matt Besser, Christina, Katherine Martinez, and Steph Tole.

That goes from eight to nine 15. I would much rather go see. And then that would allow us at 10 o’clock to catch the only other thing on the bill, which is the super good show. Parentheses, a standup comedy, closed parentheses, expects super sets from some of your favorite standups and maybe a few new discoveries.

Todd Barry, a Meridian, Katherine Blandford. Sam j. Beth Stell. Emma Wilman. All right. Let’s keep this simple tonight. Meet yet like five o’clock. We’ll have a couple.

We’ll do that till nine 15 and then we’ll walk over to the super Good show, 10 to 1115, and that’s a nice full night.
