» Buy: Nate Fridson's debut album "Best Guy So Far" out now on AST

Aug 12, 2014 - 4:06 PM - by isoS

AST is proud to present the debut album from The Michigan Marauder (not his nickname) Nate Fridson. Maybe "proud" isn't the right word: we had nothing to do with making Nate the comic he is today, we're just lucky he chose us to help him put out his CD. But "lucky to present" isn't a phrase, and doesn't sound right, so I went with the tried-and-true "P.T.P." Excuse the shit out of me. Point is, Nate's an amazingly good comedian that makes us and a lot of other people laugh. To see if you're one of those people, buy this album and listen to it in its entirety.

You can buy and/or hear "Best Guy So Far" in all the usual places. We recommend:

ASTrecords.com: http://astrecords.bigcartel.com/prod...-guy-so-far-cd
iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/be...ar/id897744761

Sample tracks available on Soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/natefridson/

» Out today: Doug Benson's "Forced Fun"

Jul 08, 2014 - 4:34 PM - by BillBrasky
Finally, a sequel comedy album! Doug Benson's seventh album in seven years- If you liked last year's release by Doug Benson, "Gateway Doug," you'll love "Gateway Doug 2: Forced Fun." Recorded as usual on 4/20, at Helium Comedy Club in Portland, Oregon, each track on GD2 attempts to pick up where the corresponding track on GD1 left off. Make sense? If not, smoke some weed and try not to worry about it. Get it on CD or iTunes today!

» Tonight: "Drunk History" and "Nathan For You" return to Comedy Central

Jul 01, 2014 - 5:29 PM - by BillBrasky
Time to crack open the history books, because America's favorite inebriated storytellers are returning for a second season! Ten episodes of the hit Comedy Central series "Drunk History" begin on Tuesday, July 1st at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT, followed by the second season premiere of "Nathan For You."

In the season premiere episode, host Derek Waters takes us to Montgomery, Ala., for a look at the city's history, told only the way "Drunk History" can... three sheets to the wind. The all-star cast reenacts the story of Claudette Colvin, the little-known teenager who inspired Rosa Parks' (Lisa Bonet) historic stance; the Joe Louis (Terry Crews) v. Max Schmeling (Tim Heidecker) fights of the late 1930s, featuring 'Weird Al' Yankovic as Hitler; and the history of chemist Percy Julian (Jordan Peele).

Other A-list guest stars featured this season include Jack Black, Courteney Cox, David Cross, Jon Daly, Charlie Day, Laura Dern, Emily Deschanel, Nathan Fielder, Rich Fulcher, Ron Funches, Brett Gelman, Zach Gilford, Tony Hale, James Hong, Brandon T. Jackson, Johnny Knoxville, Nick Kroll, John Lithgow, Joe Lo Truglio, Jason Mantzoukas, Ken Marino, Jayma Mays, Jack McBrayer, Stephen Merchant, Jason Momoa, Bobby Moynihan, Jerry O'Connell, Patton Oswalt, Adrianne Palicki, Chris Parnell, Busy Philipps, Jesse Plemons, Retta, Jason Ritter, Jeffrey Ross, Winona Ryder, Paul Scheer, Alia Shawkat, Martin Starr, Juno Temple, Matt Walsh, Michaela Watkins, Jaleel White, Casey Wilson and Steven Yeun.

Then, Comedy Central's "Nathan For You," the series critics have called "ridiculously hilarious" and "insanely brilliant," returns for its second season. Nathan Fielder is back helping real small businesses turn a profit with marketing tactics that no ordinary consultant would dare to attempt. Before the premiere of season two, fans can look back on all of Nathan's sincere efforts to inspire and help, often lost in hilarious translation, by watching the complete season one now available on the Comedy Central App and at cc.com/nathan.

This season, Nathan ups the ante with some of his most ambitious ideas to date. From driving foot traffic to an off-the-strip souvenir shop by using Hollywood flair and a Johnny Depp impersonator, to convincing a pet store to market at a pet cemetery by advertising on a gravestone, to finding a legal way to appropriate the trademark of one of the world's biggest brands by opening a coffee shop called Dumb Starbucks, Nathan goes as far as it takes to make his ideas come to life. But with his unorthodox approach to problem solving, Nathan's genuine efforts to do good often draw real people into an experience far beyond what they signed up for.

In the season two premiere, Nathan sets out to prove that honest auto mechanics do exist by having one submit himself to a lie detector test every time he provides an estimate, and helps a struggling realtor find a niche in a competitive market by taking her down an unexpected, and somewhat out of this world, path as the area's first Ghost Realtor - providing guarantees that the homes she shows are free of any and all supernatural entities.
