Taped at Boston’s Royale on March 1st, Moontower alumnus Brendon Walsh’s stand-up special for Comedy Central’s new series, The Half Hour, premieres on Friday, May 25th at 11pm/10pm CST.
Comedian and tireless Austin stand-up advocate Ramin Nazer made his network television debut last night on CBS’ “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson” to a receptive audience and he also garnered a plug for his Moontower Comedy and Oddity Festival appearance in April. Nazer, who performed at Just for Laughs in Montreal last year, runs the Live at Coldtowne Friday Shows and who can be seen around town performing his inventive one-liners and offbeat vignettes on almost any given night. For more information visit his web site or check out this Austin Chronicle Profile.
UPDATE: Here is Ramin’s “Late Late Show” set:
