By | May 18, 2010 at 3:30 pm | No comments

Bill Cosby was a guest last night on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno Redux. Surprisingly, unlike many aging comedians, he came on doing what he has always done best, stand-up comedy…except he delivered it while sitting down. Can’t blame Cosby for that, after all he is 72 years old (not to mention, he's been doing live stand-up sitting down for years). And what did more...

Watching the season finale of Saturday Night Live felt a lot like lunch the day after Thanksgiving… slapping together a bunch of odds and ends, reheating leftovers, adding a few new ingredients to turn that same turkey into a turkey salad sandwich.

photo by Chris Saunders This interview was originally posted on Punchline Magazine on Nov. 30, 2009 Doug Stanhope's newly released album From Across the Street is exactly what you'd expect-- that is, if you're a sick and twisted human being. How many comics today could get away with comparing themselves to the 9/11 hijackers? How many could ask an more...


As expected, Betty White rules on Saturday Night Live

Everything old was golden again for this week’s historic Saturday Night Live. Anticipation for host Betty White was sky-high. The hype, for a lesser star, could have meant disaster for the show. As you’ll see, the writers took the easy way out. The lines they wrote weren’t what was funny, it was the fact that Betty White that delivered them that got the laughs. It more...

I never thought I'd see the day where these two were rubbing elbows. Paltrow is in one of those presumably fake Hollywood more...
