Wanda Sykes tells Ellen DeGeneres she had a double mastectomy

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...

Meeting a significant other’s parents can be awkward, to say the least. That probably explains why entire comedy movie franchises have emerged from that very premise, perhaps the most well-known of which these days being the aptly-titled Meet the Parents series. They’re the...
