Well, my dears, we have been given a 30 Rock sneak peek from the heavens above. (You know it's returning to NBC on Jan. 12 at 8 pm ET, right?) And oh! What a peek it is. First, we find out that Liz has a super-hot boyfriend (played by James Marsden. Meow.) who makes her hot...

It’s no secret that I absolutely love everything Louis C.K. does. He could sit onstage and tell me why I suck for two hours and I’d still think he was brilliant. Hell, I even wrote a 30 page paper about Louie for a graduate school seminar last year. Long story short,...

Watch Will Ferrell in a teaser for his Spanish comedy flick ‘Casa de mi Padre’

Watch Will Ferrell in a teaser for his Spanish comedy flick ‘Casa de mi Padre’

Will Ferrell’s comedic range never ceases to amaze me: he’s at once 100 percent convincing as the most naïve, cheerful kid on the planet (i.e. Elf, which will be on cable TV daily until 2012 rolls around, probably) and as a supreme womanizing douchebag (i.e. Wedding...

There hasn't been a recent GOP debate, so the pan for comedy gold in the political realm is momentarily sparse. But Funny or Die will not be stopped by the lack of debates or bizarre soundbites from which to produce web videos in order to make fun of the candidates vying for the...

Each year when Christmas rolls around, Jewish comedians have a lot to say about growing up celebrating Hanukkah (widely portrayed as a dull holiday) instead of Christmas. Their main complaint, of course, is that they were forced to watch their non-Jewish friends have all sorts...

Some of you may remember Picnicface from a video that went viral back in 2007 about a fake energy drink known as Powerthirst. Well, up in the frigid, white north, Picnicface just finished off the first season of their half-hour sketch show of the same name. The series airs on...
