Layers: Our Tribute to ‘The Jeselnik Offensive’

Layers: Our Tribute to ‘The Jeselnik Offensive’

Over the weekend Anthony Jeselnik announced the cancellation of his Comedy Central show The Jeselnik Offensive at the New York Comedy Festival. Sadly, it was confirmed yesterday. I must say I was more than a little shocked to hear the news. For two seasons Jeselnik stirred up controversy more than Daniel Tosh on acid. Jeselnik […]

Layers: ‘The Pete Holmes Show’ Experience

Layers: ‘The Pete Holmes Show’ Experience

Yesterday I was lucky enough to be a member of the test show audience for The Pete Holmes Show. Having attended one of the pilot episodes I was able to do a little cross-comparison of the changes that were made. Set-wise some of the more personal artifacts (references to Drive, There will be Blood, etc) […]

Layers: We LOVED UCB Comedy Collide 2013!

Layers: We LOVED UCB Comedy Collide 2013!

Happy Columbus Day, Amerigo Vespuccians! Now that that’s out of the way I’d like to confess that I experienced a gamut of emotions this weekend; luckily, laughter was part of that mix. I only wish I would have experienced The Walking Dead, Gravity and Comedy Collide in reverse (time machine, please). Anyhoo, let’s get back […]

Layers: Our Recap of the 2013 LA Podcast Festival

Layers: Our Recap of the 2013 LA Podcast Festival

We’re still recovering from the second annual LA Podcast festival and with good reason. The schedule was so jam packed with quality podcasts we found ourselves in a serious cloning situation. I may have sprouted some extra chromosomes in the process. Podcasters and fans filled the beautiful Le Méridien Delfina Santa Monica hotel with plenty […]

Layers: Louise meets her match on Bob’s Burgers

Layers: Louise meets her match on Bob’s Burgers

FOX‘s ADHD lineup continues to leave me wholly satiated and Bob’s Burgers tops my list of all time favorite animated shows. I think many would agree with me that candy is a very important aspect of a child’s life growing up. I mean just think about all those candy-centric holidays…Christmas, Easter, V-day, and the mother […]

Layers: The Simpson’s “Treehouse of Terror XXIV” was a horror-ific delight

Layers: The Simpson’s “Treehouse of Terror XXIV” was a horror-ific delight

There was no way in hell I was missing FOX’s animated pre-trick or treat fun this past Sunday. With 5 minutes to spare I made it back from the LA PodFest just in time to start watching The Simpson’s Treehouse of Terror XXIV. Holy Guillermo del Toro! was it worth the rush. Not only was […]

Layers: Dylan Brody’s “Writ Large” Soars

Layers: Dylan Brody’s “Writ Large” Soars

Humorist Dylan Brody’s comedy album “Writ Large” is a finely crafted web of stories that does not disappoint. I’d buy it just for the kitty story alone, but that’s beside the point. You don’t often find a comedian that can both capture your interest and move you at the same time. I love how one […]

Layers: “The K Ohle” Podcast Review

Layers: “The K Ohle” Podcast Review

When I think Kurt Braunohler the words whimsical, creative, and enigmatic come to mind. Kurt’s new podcast The K Ohle is every bit like Kurt and to say that I love it is an understatement. Not only is the multi-format concept fresh and inviting but its fully contained in a palatable timeframe of ~30min. The […]
