Rooftop recently helped one of our fave podcasts, Pop My Culture, partner up with the awesome online magazine Chinashop. PMC was recently named #2 Comedy Podcast by Rolling Stone – you can catch up on it here.

Check out the funny new episode of “Culture Pops” made exclusively for Chinashop by Cole and Vanessa at the Roxy in LA.

NCCC: The judges have spoken!

Congrats to our 2011 Funniest Comedy Team: Penn State University. All around Penn State had great performers and an awesome roast video. The four left standing will win VIP trips to the Lopez Tonight show in LA – and one teammate may even get the chance to perform! Crazy.

Also, congrats to our four MVPs! They will also get a rad trip, to Chicago to perform in the prestigious TBS Just for Laughs Festival.
