Levity Entertainment Group (Leg) has a new vertical for comedy fans to enjoy. The production company, which owns comedy venues across the U.S. and is backed by Madison Square Garden Entertainment, launched the comedy YouTube channel Wait for It on May 29, 2015.
Created by Leg Digital, Wait for It will feature names from Leg’s own network of 300+ comedians, as well as burgeoning internet entertainers. Shows on the new YouTube channel will include exclusive content, segments from Leg’s roster of talent, and collaboration clips with digital stars. Wait for It will even incorporate Twitter and its associated live streaming app Periscope for timely delivery of live comedy performances.
A few original series have already been announced for Wait for It. The first is called Just Riffin, an interview series where host Nikki Limo will talk to comedians just coming off the stage at Leg’s Hollywood Improv theater. Limo »

Austin - This is a story about finger-banging to Kid Rock and marijuana gummi candies. Or, rather, it's a game about it. SXSW and St. Patrick's Day -- which both landed this week -- are in and of themselves drinking prompts, and a classic round of Two Truths And A Lie is how I found my way into an interview with comedians Ari Shaffir and Big Jay Oakerson. Both were on hand for a night of Comedy Central stardom in Austin. Shaffir hosted a live version of his popular web series-turned-tv show "This Is Not Happening," which is just finishing its first season run this week. “What’s Your F@!?#ng Deal” boasted Oakerson's miracle crowd work, along with features from Nate Bargatze, Joe DeRosa, Todd Glass and Liza Treyger. Put them together for telling facts and lies? A lot of naked truths. Watch our video above and play along. »
