For 30 years, New York's legendary Comedy Cellar has served as the launching pad for greatest stand up comedians in the world. Colin Quinn, Dave Chappelle, Ray Romano, Dave Attell, Chris Rock, Jon Stewart, Dane Cook, Robert Kelly and Greg Giraldo are just a few of the comedians who began as Cellar regulars. But classic stage performances have never been the only show going on at the Cellar. The biggest comedians in the world come to sit at the table upstairs, where comedians come to argue an ...
 
Have you ever have someone say, “I’m gonna tell you something but you can’t tell anyone else...”? Well Kevin Brennan doesn’t believe in that. Kevin believes that if everyone thinks you’re an a-hole, then maybe you should just be that a-hole. Every week, KB gives his truly honest, sometimes abrasive opinion of people, places and things. If you have nothing nice to say, say it on a podcast. Misery Loves Company with Kevin Brennan

This week -- calling out the selfish comics who double book when it cost other people and the audience grief and sorrow. So maybe it's time to get out since I'm obviously taking it all very personally. I mean Michael Corleone can say it's not personal, but we know it is. 😉 Also, my first Adderall experience, running into the great Lewis Black, my f…
 
Hello hello and welcome to our JULY Audio/Video Podcast. Finally going through the work box in which I found my Saturday Night Live contract, my Late Show with David Letterman audition and all of the jokes Dave Attell and Chris Regan wrote for me when I was opening for the band Roman Holiday in London. It's awesome. Then we speak to our friend Memo…

Hi. The Coca Cola Company ran out of Gatorade and they have this horrible other awful product I tell you about on today's podcast. Also, how I called out the chef at Applebees, for once again, a subpar "buffalo" wings experience. Also today, meet Paul Loren. This amazing singer/songwriter who first appeared on my Comedy Cellar Show. And, my first T…
 
Hello all. This week - they told me not to drive, but I made it home alive - I actually pulled a You May Be Right and rode the little Vespa bike home in the rain, which was insane and then I crashed into a car. It's hilarious. No, it is. The stubbornness of keeping the streak of no subways or cabs is going to get me killed. Also, the 4 part moon sa…

Well, who knew. . . apparently Paul Simon decided to take credit for writing the theme to H.R. Pufnstuf. Now that's just hilarious. All we be explained today of course and it's most intriguing -- let alone Penny Marshall auditioning for Witchiepoo. Also, things are clearly back to normal as my yearly trip to the Fireworks store continued this week.…
 
Well hello all. Today on an all new podcast - What about Love? The band Heart and how they brilliantly morphed into an unbelievably successful glam rock band -- BUT, only after they stopped writing their own songs. Ooooh. Controversy.

Alec Sulkin is the writer and producer of Family Guy and this podcast's favorite movie, Ted. He is also what The Nightfly Podcast is all about. Alec and I first bonded over our love of Christopher Reeve as Clark Kent and it's just a fact that no Superman has come close to his duality of playing the role. We also get some insight into the writings o…
 
Hello all. It's true - Rodney Dangerfield, Brian Doyle Murray, Michael McKean - three of the funniest comic actors of our time AND James Earl Jones all for some unknown reason appear in the straight to video "Casper, a Spirited Beginning". I don't know how this happened and one would say money is how but certainly didn't look like much of a budget …

The Go-Go's made it (thank god) to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and let's kick things off today with their rather prolific song, which I titled the podcast today. So I guess when the dumb Rock and Roll Hall of Fame gets it right, everything else gets it wrong. Oh, it's another week of madness with nonsense and people continuing to get cancelled a…

Yep. I'm the older brother and I have been shunned from Mother's Day by Michelle not Michael - which would be my sister's middle name so it works if you really try. The Horror. The Horror. Also, I'm just gonna say it - Sondheim sucks - as I found from watching Into the Woods and Meryl Streep should not sing anymore in the movies. Diverse comedy, SN…
 
No, this isn't the Billy Joel A to Z Podcast but the title fits. I'm a mess. With everything opening up I feel lost and who knows what else. So, what's the only thing that cheers me up today? For some reason, the theme from the old Ted Knight show, Two Close for Comfort seems to calm me. I have no idea why. I'm like King Kong and just needed a nice…

Hi everyone. I finally left the state and actually flew somewhere. It was quite exciting since everyone's slowly getting out again. But mostly, OMG, finally a story to tell after over a year.

Are musical Supergroups even a thing anymore?. Today we go through a bunch of the so called, "Supergroups". But for my money, obviously all the Supergroups take place in the 80's. So that's where we're headed today. Also, the Oscars suck and they should just cancel it. Haven't heard or seen any of the nominees this year, which, when we reflect, rea…

It's a four hour extended addition of The Nightfly this week. Oh god -- could you imagine. Well, that's pretty much what the four hour Justice League movie is - except of course for Gal Gadot who is the only reason for watching. And, I guess Aquaman if we're being honest. Rrrow. But seriously folks, on today's show: Do Women gamble on Sports? And i…
