We're back with our weekly comedy briefing as we took yesterday to enjoy the long & restful weekend for Memorial Day. Like it was for us, we hope you had a restful weekend surrounded by your family, friends, & loved ones with a good dose of laughs!

This Week In Comedy: Sal Vulcano of the famed comedy group Impractical Jokers releases his long awaited debut stand-up special, Terrified, this Friday at 11 AM CT on 800 Pound Gorilla's YouTube channel. The new special was shot at the famous & historic Vic Theatre in Chicago with the help of fellow comedian & executive producer Ari Shaffir.

Speaking of stand-up specials, there are plenty more solid hours worth checking out this week. Gary Vider releases It Could Be Worse, Carmen Lynch releases her fully Spanish language spoken special Carmen Lynch en Español, Chris Griffin releases Words Have Consequences on our YouTube channel, Jessi Cruickshank releases her debut special Minivan Money on Veeps, & AJ Wilkerson releases Captain Autism. Additionally, Ali Clayton releases her debut comedy album Country Queer.

On the podcast front, there are two new shows to check out. Comedian Gabby Bryan is teaming with her rockstar father David Bryan of Bon Jovi on a new podcast that's certainly gonna be a comedic family affair appropriately titled, Let Me Ask My Dad. Melissa Fumero & Stephanie Beatriz (together known as Amy Santiago & Rosa Diaz from Brooklyn Nine-Nine) are teaming up for a brand new comedy podcast called More Better.

And finally: two new indie comedies are opening in theaters. Ezra follows a stand-up comedian (played by Bobby Cannavale) raising his autistic son. Summer Camp stars Dianne Keaton, Kathy Bates, Alfre Woodard & Eugene Levy, which follows a group of childhood best friends from their summers at sleep away camp, who reunite many years later for the camp reunion.
