Remember Omar from The Wire? Well, The Wire is not a show anymore, but Community is. See where I’m going with this? Dude is now on the cast of the NBC comedy. [Paste] Speaking of Community, John Goodman is joining the cast for the upcoming season. John Goodman! Hell yeah.

This is one of the many reasons I love Community. They just don't give a shit. When the Emmy nominations were announced a few weeks ago, I was shocked that the NBC comedy didn't snag even one. But that's ok. The Community peeps are back at work and taking the whole thing in stride. Check out this photo Community star Alison Brie just tweeted with this accompanying text: more...

Just minutes ago stand-up comedian and The Office star Craig Robinson tweeted out this message: "1st table read Season 8!!!!" and uploaded the below photo. How many folks can you name? Ok, so let's review what we know about season 8 so far. James Spader is in; Jenna Fischer is preggo in real life and it'll be written into the script. Fun! What we still don't know: more...

Watch Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake rap through the ages

You may remember that last September, singer, actor and guy with a good sense of humor Justin Timberlake visited Late Night with Jimmy Fallon to promote The Social Network. And that was all well and good. Even better was when the pair performed a rap medley dedicated to the history of the genre. Well, last night the pair regrouped on Fallon's show -- this time, JT was more...

While it's great that comedians are getting appreciated on America's Got Talent, hearing Piers Morgan call J. Chris Newberg's peformance "startlingly inappropriate" and Sharon Osbourne comment that his song was "just so, so wrong" is more than slightly obtuse (see video below). That's not "wrong" at all. It's not even close. Did Sharon forget about Black Sabbath and what more...

Jerry Seinfeld joins Twitter; whips out concentration camp joke

As iconic as he is, Jerry Seinfeld did not have an official presence online until he launched his site JerrySeinfeld.com on May 6. Well, before this past weekend even started, Jerry made another technological leap to the delight of his many fans: he joined Twitter. As of this writing, the comedy giant -- already verified on Twitter -- has already amassed nearly 150,000 more...

Since the season finale of The Office (and Steve Carell's departure) earlier this year, every cast member of the hit NBC show has been disappointingly tight-lipped about what's to come for season eight. Sure, now we know Emmy giant James Spader has been cast as CEO of Sabre, Dunder Miflin's parent company. But we want more info. Luckily the sneaky sneaks at NY Mag's more...


Watch musical comedian J. Chris Newberg win over “America’s Got Talent” audience

Watch musical comedian J. Chris Newberg win over “America’s Got Talent” audience

By | July 13, 2011 at 10:51 am | No comments

America’s Got Talent reminds me of a coliseum in Ancient Rome, where the entire bloodthirsty audience was in attendance to see some grisly death by tiger or rhinoceros or whatever other beast happened to live in Italy at the time. They’re out for blood, not for a solid performance by a gladiator. With that in mind, J. Chris Newberg’s stand-up-and-musical more...

Tommy Johnagin: “Stand Up Comedy 2″ (Review)

It’s no secret among my circle of friends that I gravitate towards edgy comedy. I love being punched in the gut by a barrage of vulgarity and shock à la George Carlin, Bob Saget, even Louis C.K. or Marc Maron. I want to come out of a show with my soul destroyed and my faith in humanity shaken. Fun times! Immersion in that flavor of comedy meant listening to Tommy more...
