Just a quick PSA to all the industry types, visitors and/or artists who aren’t getting their hotels paid for:
Today (May 30) is the final day for the cheap rate at the official Just For Laughs hotel, the Hyatt. Rooms start at $179, which is as low as you’ll ever get it for during the Festival. Reservations don’t require payment in advance, but must be booked through the JFL Comedy Conference site.
There are plenty of more cost-efficient alternatives in the general area, but the closer you are to the Hyatt, the easier life will be for you.
30 Rock aired their second-ever fully-live episode on Thursday night, with the help of a slew of guest stars including Jon Hamm, Donald Glover, Amy Poehler, and Jimmy Fallon.
The entire show was performed live twice, once for the eastern timezone and once for the west. The plot was the same on both coasts: the staff debated whether TGS would continue to air live or not, throwing to flashbacks to the historic live television moments that had come out of studio 6H.
But there were some changes between the two airings. Which one was better? This calls for an east coast / west coast battle!
Paul McCartney in the east, Kim Kardashian in the west.

When Chris Hardwick says he appreciates a fan’s gift, he means it.
Third Beat’s recap of Hardwick’s visit to Toronto last month mentioned a few of the offerings lavished upon him by fans, including “a homemade TARDIS”.
Turns out, this particular TARDIS has legs…
Stephen Colbert returned to the set of the Colbert Report Monday after two abruptly-cancelled tapings last week, addressing his real-life family emergency at the top of the show.
When’s the last time the anonymous internet masses made you proud?
Now that we’re past the 24 hour spoiler alert buffer, it’s safe to say that most plugged-in comedy nerds are aware that comedian Todd Glass came out as gay on Monday’s episode of WTF with Marc Maron.
It was an emotional hour, and the revelation came as a big surprise to most of the comedy community.
When the New York Times published its profile of Eddie Brill yesterday, I learned about it on Brill’s Facebook page, alongside some commentary that suggested he found an out-of-context quote rather irksome.
Not knowing what Brill’s specific concern was, I read through it, and sure enough I had some issues with how he was portrayed. What is with all this stuff about conflict of interest and misusing his power as the show’s booker? He’s very well-respected in the industry, I can’t believe they’d imply these things, and I —
— Wait, no, that wasn’t the contentious issue.
What’s proven to be a problematic quote is something that didn’t even jump out at me on first read.
Chris Hardwick landed in hipsterville to play 2 shows at Littlefield in Brooklyn, NY on May 20, which came complete with a crowd-pleasing bonus set of Hard ‘N Phirm songs with opener Mike Phirman.
Luckily for us, the concept of “truth in comedy” is a foreign one to Noel Fielding.
In front of his second of three packed houses at Toronto’s intimate Comedy Bar, the uber-popular Mighty Boosh star wove fantastical tales out of small granules of reality. He took us on adventures though having a flamingo as a roommate after a zoological “adoption” program gone awry, the inner dialogue of a fly trapped indoors, and his relationship with his freaky neighbor dubbed “Monkey Edwards”. It all starts innocent enough, but before you know it you realize Fielding has sneakily led you down a dark path of make-believe.
