For Grownups: Premiere Dates & Details for New Netflix Stand-Up Specials Revealed...

Netflix #StreamTeamThis afternoon, I sat-in on a discussion about the growing number of Stand-Up Specials that will be rolling out on Netflix in the coming year. Hannibal Buress, John Mulaney and Patton Oswalt threw down some thoughts on working with Netflix on their latest specials - Oswalt largely equating the readily-available library as being like "albums on a shelf" - You want to see it, and there it is. This Spring, four new titles will join that virtual shelf, with details and premiere dates for specials by Buress, Jimmy Carr, Theo Von and Oswalt ready to roll out. Check out a preview...

Comedy: Jim Florentine & Don Jamieson to unleash TERRORIZING TELEMARKETERS Volume 6

Those who know me are usually aware of my dislike for door-to-door solicitors and telemarketers.

On December 4, Metal Blade Records will unleash TERRORIZING TELEMARKETERS: VOLUME 6, the latest collection of phone-based retaliation from JIM FLORENTINE and DON JAMIESON. Available via iTunes, Amazon, and the like, physical CDs will be available exclusively at live shows. Check out "In a Pickle..."

31 Days of Halloween: Common Shiner attend Wes Craven's Slasher High School in Chicago...

Funny enough, I've been doing my annual 31 Days of Halloween here on THE ROCK FATHER for eighteen days now, and today of all days, I didn't have an entry scheduled. While I may have goofed, the internet Gods shined upon me this evening with an out-of-the-darkness email from a rep for Chicago band, COMMON SHINER, pointing me in the direction of their new music video, "Social Mediasochist." Imagine for a moment that the John Hughes-inspired world of NOT ANOTHER TEEN MOVIE was placed in a blender with every slasher film from about 1980 'til now. See what the students of Wes Craven's Slasher High School are up to in the new video, directed by Zoran Gvojic of Lowcarbcomedy...
