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

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...

Review: “Conan O’Brien Can’t Stop”

In theaters June 24 As a Conan O’Brien fan who followed The Tonight Show ordeal as closely and obsessively as Internet access allowed, I’d describe the last two years of the host’s career as: a) hectic and b) well documented. Everybody interested in knowing what went down at NBC and in the Conan and Leno camps does; there’s even a book about it-- The War For more...

Well, four years later the folks at NBC might just come back to Rogan with an offer he can't more...

But to make up for it, here's what we'll do. We're going to post the just-released final installment, featuring Tina Fey, below. And then after the jump, be sure to check more...
