Dan Levy is a contemporary renaissance comedian-- if there is such a thing. With the ability to seamlessly transition from stand-up stage (including his own half-hour Comedy Central special), to TV hosting duties to Web series production and acting to writing for network television, the 30-year-old has already had an enviable career. But, really, the guy who recently more...

Steve Carell was one of the final guests on Conan O’Brien’s The Tonight Show, and, unsurprisingly, his appearance on the show wasn’t any old guest spot.

Ricky Gervais, busiest (most powerful?) comedy person in the world will drop by the new season of Family Guy to voice the part of a dolphin for an episode titled, "Be Careful What You Wish For." This is great news for us, but Gervais may be even more excited about the guest gig, since he’s a huge fan of the enormously politically incorrect animation Fox more...

Saturday Night Live writer Mike O'Brien's new short-form interview web series could be called Between Two Jackets, as it has that similar hilariously awkward feeling of Zach Galifianakis' Funny Or Die series Between Two Ferns. O'Brien premiered 7 Minutes in Heaven (named in honor of the teenager party make-out game from the 1950s) today on YouTube, Hulu.com and more...

While he was in New York City to record a live version of his podcast WTF in Brooklyn, Marc Maron visited Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.

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...
