Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- Best known for his roll on the TV dramedy "Ed," and for appearing on VH1's "I Love the ..." series, Michael Ian Black is on the stand-up comedy circuit, and it has brought him here to Phoenix.

Black sat down with Scott Pasmore and Tara Hitchcock Friday morning.

The popular comedian started his career The State, a sketch comedy troupe he co-founded at New York University in 1988, which went on to have a successful run on MTV. He then went on to a number of other projects, but she always made time for stand-up.

Black will be on stage at the Tempe Improv this weekend
