Remember when Fox News put out an astonishingly valid article about how some female comics are funny, and especially since they’re super hot? And how this new landscape of comedy requires women to be sexy if they want any kind of fame? Yeah, totally right. Well, two female...

I know I’ve gotten kind of old (well, old-ish) because some of my friends have started having babies. On purpose. It’s a worrisome trend. But, thankfully, I’m not alone! On Conan last night, Amy Schumer related being similarly thrown off-kilter by her friends becoming...

I love the explosion of social media and intuitive technology, but one consequential trend really gets my goat. Ever see those videos featuring tweens and teenagers speaking into a webcam about their lives, calling out “haters,” and showing off things they buy? Yeah. Not a...

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...

Looks like TBS is continuing to take its tagline, “Very funny,” very seriously. After nabbing Conan O’Brien last year and continuing to develop Tyler Perry’s many comedy projects, the cable network has ordered a new pilot from Vince Vaughn’s production company....
