Owen Benjamin Knows Comics to Watch Artie Lange Is Back, Mother F**kers

Move over moving pictures, all the kids are into the podcasts these days. Last night at the Gramercy Theater two podcasts: You Made It Weird with Pete Holmes and The Meltdown with Jonah Ray and Kumail Nanjiani recorded live with a variety of stand-up guests (Kurt Metzger, Hari Kondabolu, Gabe Liedman, Chelsea PerettiEugene MirmanJared Logan).

In the photo above (from You Made It Weird), Chelsea Peretti can be seen on a couch where she remained for most of the night "spooning herself." Pete Holmes recalled meeting his wife as Salem Witch Trial reenactors and cited Marc Maron's WTF podcast as an influence on his podcast. Then there was The Meltdown, which was named the number-one comedy show in Los Angeles, and featured surprise guests  Jim Gaffigan and Hannibal Buress.

Comedy podcasts have exploded over the past few years and they're a lot like Pokemon, you got to catch them all. That was another reference for the kids.

More New York Comedy Festival coverage is on the way. Watch the entire Comics to Watch showcase this Monday, November 12 at 4pm ET/1pm PT on cc.com/comicstowatch, and live-tweet with Owen Benjamin and all the comedians. Happy Birthday!
