I've been liking Joy Behar's new show on HLN, mostly because of the amount of great stand-up comedy guests she incorporates. One night, I saw Rich Vos sitting next to famous magazine editor Bonnie Fuller; it was an odd combo. Next week, she'll have on Susie Essman, Sarah...

There's been tons of comedy-related Christmas videos posted online this year. But this is, by far, my favorite. For the past few months, I've been finding much humor and talent in these two masked dudes who call themselves Clown Core. I've also been looking for an excuse to post...
