Lucille Ball was much more than the red headed troublemaking, lovable klutz we know so well. She was also a TV Pioneer who shaped the landscape of 21st century pop culture.

Watch: Tina Fey and Rachel Dratch’s show from 1999 has surfaced online — and it’s all kinds of genius

Want to know what Tina Fey and Rachel Dratch were doing back when they were our age before they hit the big time? They were being completely hilarious.
A 1999 video of the two performing at Chicago’s Second City surfaced, showing the comediennes performing in their two-woman show Dratch & Fey. The brilliant early work from these two is inspiration for artists to keep chipping way at whatever they’re working on. You never know where you’ll wind up. 
This is the first time it’s been available to the public

Ron Funches, Cristela Alonzo, Pete Davidson, Fortune Feimster, Nathan Fielder, Grace Helbig, The Lucas Brothers, Greg Poehler, Lena Waithe, and Harvard Sailing Team are Variety's picks this year for what to watch in comedy. 

Congratulations to all these folks and, like the list suggests, you can currently (or very soon) watch many of these acts on TV or, in Funches case, the side of many buses.

DIBS is a series about two best friends and one serious relationship. Theirs.

DIBS is also a series that just released its second season, in full, just like Orange is The New Black so no need to go through binge watching withdrawals.

Written by and starring Tracy Soren and Jessie Jolles, aka soren & jolles, the series cast and crew features talented comedians from the UCBNY. DIBS was featured in Crushable’s “10 Rising Improv Stars Who Deserve Their Own TV Shows”.

Myq Kaplan has pretty much done stand up, and deservingly so, on almost every late night talk show you can do. Conan, Letterman, Ferguson, and now, Late Night with Seth Meyers.

Watch his set from last night here.
