news.avclub.comThree never-before-heard Richard Pryor albums have been discoveredIn a press release, satellite radio service SiriusXM has announced that it’s putting together a celebration of comedy icon Richard Pryor later this month on the Comedy Greats channel, with the event including remastered versions of Pryor’s entire stand-up discography, an “original audio documentary” hosted by Ron Bennington, and—most intriguingly—three never-before-heard stand-up albums from Pryor that will be available to the public for the first time ever on SiriusXM. The long-lost albums were apparently discovered by Pryor’s family among a “treasure trove of material kept in his old storage units.” The first of the three new albums, Live At The Roxy, will premiere on SiriusXM on May 25, followed by Live At Casa Comedia on Jun 1, and then Live At The Ice House (which features some material Pryor was working on before taping his Here And Now special) on June 8.
news.avclub.comFox says it's happy for NBC and Brooklyn Nine-Nine, reallyEvery spring, TV networks engage in a traditional blood harvest of cancellations in order to ensure a bountiful harvest of press as they present their new fall lineups at their upfront presentations. This year’s ritual sacrifice took place last week, seeing the cancellation of around 20 shows, most traumatic of which was the demise of Brooklyn Nine-Nine in its fifth season. Now, with B99 set for a midseason 2018-2019 return on NBC, Fox is addressing its decision to dump the casually progressive cop comedy and snuggle up with Tim Allen’s Last Man Standing instead.
avclub.comComedian Joel Kim Booster faces off against a smoked sausage smoothieWelcome back to Dice Of Disgust, where we test the limits of both our question-writing abilities and our guests’ gustatory stamina. In this video, comedian Joel Kim Booster faces off against a nauseating smoked sausage smoothie. The Chicago comedian is fresh off the release of his first stand-up album, Model Minority, and second appearance on Conan. He’s currently developing a half-hour comedy titled Birthright, which is loosely based on his life as “a child born in South Korea before being adopted by white, Midwest evangelical parents.” Watch as Joel fights through the smoothie and answers questions about his stand-up, his parents, and tells us about the time he met former Vice President Joe Biden.
tv.avclub.comBrooklyn cops, new girls, last men, and the end of a sitcom lineup for the agesOn Thursday, the Fox Broadcasting Company performed a hard reset on its comedy lineup, canceling three single-camera sitcoms whose creative heights were never matched by commercial ones: Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Last Man On Earth, and The Mick. With New Girl previously set to conclude its Fox run on Tuesday, May 15 and the fates of L.A. To Vegas and Ghosted (the latter of which has six retooled episodes hanging in limbo) still undecided, the shape of funny Fox things to come looked increasingly like Tim Allen pandering to Trump Country. Friday’s Last Man Standing revival confirmed it: One of TV’s most reliable sources for oddball sitcoms is drying up. It’s a minor miracle that it lasted as long as it did.
