Jane Lynch loses the tracksuit, keeps the red for new Emmy promo video

Jane Lynch is my favorite. Human. Of ever. And I'm super excited to see this promo for her big day next month, as she hosts the Emmys. She's gorgeous in that red dress and those golden gentlemen are delicious. Normally I would avoid the Emmys altogether ...but with this host...

Two big stories have just popped up in the TV sitcom world today, and I am cautiously optimistic regarding one. One of the shows I have been looking forward to this Fall is Up All Night; starring Will Arnett, Christina Applegate and Maya Rudolph. The show centers around a couple...

Veteran comedian Vic Dunlop dies

Veteran comedian Vic Dunlop dies

It’s rare these days to find a stand-up who is both clean comic and funny. The two seem mutually exclusive in the contemporary comedy scene. Vic Dunlop, for the most part, was one of the few exceptions (one of the clips below is not ultra clean). Known for his prop buggy...

We're living in a world full of hippies and "Earth enthusiasts" and I, for one, am sick of them. With their opinions and their "science" and their full-length skirts. Thank goodness for Thomas Lennon, Ben Garant, Cathy Shim, Ed Asner and Mindy Sterling, who remind is in this...

Premature cancellation: 10 comedy shows that left the world too soon

Premature cancellation: 10 comedy shows that left the world too soon

It seems every season there's a sad departure of a comedy series that had potential. Usually it’s a slight bummer but then you find a replacement during that time slot each week and you stop mourning the loss. But a few shows have graced us in the last 15 years who were gone...

Check out Japan’s version of Saturday Night Live

I would be lying if I said I knew a bunch about the Japanese comedy community. Lying a lot. In fact, when I found out today that Japan just premiered its monthly version of Saturday Night Live, I wasn’t sure what that event meant. And then I watched the opening sequence (check...

Brilliant, absurdist sketch comedy freaks Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim gave us a fifth season of genius this year and their Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! DVD (out now!) brought even more tender morsels of awkward humor than I could have even imagined. Tim and Eric...

30 Rock recap: “Respawn” (season 5 finale)

Sorry that we didn’t have a recap last week, you guys. I was actually in NYC and was too knee-deep in booze while on my vacation. Last week’s episode was great, though. It took us back to the classic dynamics of the characters and was a refreshing return for Tracy Jordan....

PORTLAND, OR - Sunday marked the last day of the Bridgetown Comedy Festival, and though there were fewer shows to attend, I did see some solid comedy to end the weekend. I popped around a lot on Sunday to check out some of the festival's up-and-coming comics. Mostly I tried to...
