Fiona Apple has some strong words about Louis CK. Ricky Gervais was on Conan and says that he isn’t the jerk people think he is – he isn’t his characters. And the comedy hill Greg Proops is willing to die on.
Also some late night jokes from Jimmy Kimmel, Trevor Noah and Stephen Colbert…and the tweets round-up includes Ronny Chieng.
The well loved funny Vic Henley has died. Lots of famous comedians react. We hear from Jim Gaffigan, Dave Attell, Larry the Cable Guy and others.
Kimmel, Colbert and Fallon will all cohost a COVID special.
And we finally find out what went on at that Laugh Aid thing.
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.
Did The Simpsons predict Coronavirus? Probably not, but one scene can be forced to make it work. Colbert broadcasts from his tub, and a roundup of coronavirus tweets from comics.
