Strawberry Cough: A Comedy Mixtape

22 August 2016 6:14 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The concept of this project was to create a comedy mixtape that was full of sketches. Any example that I've seen of a comedy Mixtape has essentially been someone's stand-up album, perhaps with a sketch or two. As a huge fan of Adam Sandler older albums, I recall listening to those sketches repeatedly and laughing hysterically each time. Mixtapes have millions of people downloading them on a daily basis. 

 Artists featured on the mixtape are: Amber Nelson (TruTv), Nick Turner (Comedy Central), Anthony DeVito (Comedy Central), Peggy O' Leary (Just For Laughs), Sam Evans (Just For Laughs), Nathan Macintosh (Gotham Comedy Live), James L. Mattern (WWE Network), Mike Brown (MTV), Sharron Paul (CollegeHumor), Ross Parsons (MTV), Evan Williams, Sara Armour (Last Comic Standing), Lindsay Boling, Ayanna Dookie (Fox's Laughs), Christi Chiello (Comedy Central), Petey DeAbreau, Tim Warner, Jose Sanchez and Ryan Schutt.

How Roy Wood Jr. Became the Latest 'Daily Show' Breakout Star

18 April 2016 9:40 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

"Roy, what can you tell us about these new developments?"

"I can tell you I don't give a shit."

From his first appearance on-screen in September 2015, new Daily Show correspondent Roy Wood Jr. came across like a seasoned smartass who had been doing the job for years. Clad in a gray suit and sporting a cockeyed, little smirk, the 37-year-old stand-up comic argued the potential colonization of Mars meant nothing to a black man in America.
