    The Groundlings: improving improv in L.A. for 40 years
    It's raucous backstage at the Groundlings after a Tuesday evening improv show — red wine and buckets of salty snacks will do that to a roomful of comedians, as will having just killed it onstage. A fluffy border collie lumbers through the crowd,...
  • FX Picks Up Billy Crystal-Josh Gad Series 'The Comedians'

    FX has given a 13-episode series order to the Billy Crystal-Josh Gad comedy "The Comedians." Crystal will play veteran comedian who is reluctantly paired with an edgier up-and-coming star, played by Gad. The Fox TV Studios series is targeted for premiere...
