Comedian Hugh Fink used to wield a violin throughout his performances, like some sort of very hip Henny Youngman. He wouldn't always play the violin. In fact, the false starts--as he would almost begin playing before launching into another routine--became one of his act's running jokes. But he always had the instrument in hand. Not anymore.

Comedy Central already has "The Daily Show" to make fun of "serious" TV news; come September it will be adding a series to satirize such celebrity-driven programs as "Entertainment Tonight" and "Access Hollywood." "There are too many fawning entertainment shows out there, and not one of them is making fun of it all," said David Spade, the comedian who will host "The Showbiz Show." The half-hour program, created by Hugh Fink, will air weekly, the cable channel said Monday.

On Monday, one day after runners compete in the 26-mile Los Angeles Marathon, the Newporter Resort will play host to another marathon that should be less grueling and more entertaining for viewers: the hotel's first "Comedy Marathon," featuring six top L.A. comics. The Newporter has been presenting free comedy shows on Monday nights since October. The chief difference between the "Comedy Marathon" and those shows centers around the caliber and number of comedians performing.

On the first night of the Coach House's new Tuesday night comedy series, comedian and headliner Jeff Gerbino noticed that the turnout was less than overwhelming. Gerbino, who will be booking the comics for Coach House owner Gary Folgner, wasn't too disappointed by the sparse opening-night crowd in the San Juan Capistrano nightclub, though. "I told Gary when I walked in, 'I feel like Martin Luther King: I have a dream.
