Singer and “bad actress” Kelly Clarkson begs for Parks and Recreation guest role

Universal truth #1: everyone has a guilty pop music pleasure. I, for one, currently love everything about Justin Bieber (srsly), but a few years back, that spot was held by none other than Kelly Clarkson. I mean, really – “Since U Been Gone” speaks to all of us. As much as...

With shows like Louie, Arrested Development, and The Office having emerged within the last 10 years, it’s safe to say that scripted television comedy is at an apex – at least for the time being. But even considering all the brilliant writing that’s happened on these shows...

Hey, children of the 90s: remember watching TRL with Carson Daly and seeing the music video for Limp Bizkit’s “Nookie”? Those were the days. That’s when MTV still had a little bit of rebellion in it. Sigh. Fred Durst, the Limp Bizkit frontman, is getting involved in...

I love that Adult Swim celebrates weird comedy as much as they do. I mean, let’s get real – Aqua Teen Hungerforce? Sealab 2021? To say they’re quirky would be an understatement. The latest in Adult Swim’s weirdness is a miniseries called The Heart, She Holler,...

If you’ve been watching The Office this season, you might have noticed that Pam and Jim are pregnant once again. Well, technically, just Pam. Turns out that was a very convenient storyline for Jenna Fischer, because it was announced today that she and husband Lee Kirk just had...

Aside from her stand-up comedy, I’ve come to know and love Wanda Sykes for her work on the always hilarious Curb Your Enthusiasm. She’s a perfect foil for Larry David, whose awkwardness – especially where race is concerned – never fails to cause a whole lot of problems...

Peeling back the curtain of an iconic comedy show is a fascinating, sometimes unnerving experience. Remember when you found out the voice of Bart Simpson came from a lady who bore no resemblance to the little brat? Yeah. Rough revelation. Fortunately, learning a little more...

I’m so happy that legitimate television and film stars finally realize that the Internet is a wonderful place for comedy. Especially weird, edgy comedy – no FCC restrictions from the man, you know? Needless to say, it’s great that the Producers Guild of America is...
