Bert Kreischer has a funny story about beer on stage. A streaming comedy benefit includes Bill Burr and Tom Segura. Vulture says if you like Jim Gaffigan and Birbigs you should check out Ray Romano, Chad Daniels and Al Madrigal.
JIm Gaffigan tweets about the Federal Government’s response. Make Birbiglia tweets “We should never stop talking about how this isn’t even remotely okay.” Marc Maron asks if its ok If he does out for a drive. Johnny Mac answers a listener request for podcast recommendations, and SNL returned with host Tom Hanks! Plus tweets by Sam Morill and Pete Correale.
A must-read from @RoyWoodJr how Coronavirus will devastate comedians. @SteveHofsteter starts the Social Distancing Social Club on YouTube, @JimGaffigan starts dinner with the Gaffigans, @JoshGad starts Story Time, @PattonOswalt home schools on twitter…and the Netflix Comedy Festival is postponed. Lots to talk about today.
