Russell Brand hosts SNL this week; let's watch his promos

By | February 10, 2011 at 5:06 pm | 3 comments

There's little in life that I enjoy more than lazily embedding promos featuring the guest host of Saturday Night Live each week. You may know that "bad boy" British comedian Russell Brand is hosting this week; and complete fucking asshole Chris Brown is the musical guest-- which is awesome. I love when a society can come together and forgive and/or reward a dude for more...


Nick Swardson has an awesome life, tells Fallon about it

Last night, everyone's fave slacker-type comedian Nick Swardson visited Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. During their chat, we got a real look inside just how awesome Nick's life is and just how shitty ours are. Let's watch as Swardson tells us about hanging at swanky Super Bowl parties, being best buds with Adam Sandler and shitting bricks of gold. He didn't say anything more...


Dana Carvey gives SNL the old school treatment, and a few laughs along the way

By | February 7, 2011 at 10:24 am | One comment

Watching Saturday Night Live this week felt like introducing your mature, good-natured adult friends to that crazy cool old college buddy that you reminisce about all the time. At first, it was great, with the show spotlighting the biggest and best marks host Dana Carvey left on the show’s legacy during his stint from 1986-1993. The show’s cold open came straight more...


Jesse Eisenberg, Nicki Minaj push SNL to one of its best episodes of the season

By | January 31, 2011 at 10:30 am | No comments

Too often SNL feels like it’s made up of recycled parts, as if more time was spent trying to fit the week’s guests into already planned parts rather than putting together sketches specifically for the guests on hand. This week, however, was different. While it wasn’t a non-stop laugh-a-thon, and the best moments came from premises we’ve seen (but not too many more...


We can barely keep up with Chelsea Handler and Whitney Cummings

By | January 27, 2011 at 12:01 pm | One comment

Chelsea Handler might be the busiest comedienne on television right now. Days after E! announced their order for a pop culture commentary show (executive produced by Handler) and a behind-the-scenes exploration of Chelsea Lately, NBC has just announced they’ve picked up yet another Handler project. Based on her book, Are You There Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea, the comedy more...


Ass-kickin’ Amy Schumer is on the rise

By | January 20, 2011 at 8:20 am | No comments

At this stage in her career, it’s not at all difficult for any outlying individuals to reach this conclusion: Amy Schumer – comedian, actress, all-around awesome babe to the nth power – is poised to steal the “hardest working legs in showbiz” moniker from under the nose of an unsuspecting Tina Turner. Hyperbole, you say? Not in the least. Let’s assess. The more...


Mike DeStefano to debut one-man show “Drugs, Disease and Death: A Comedy”

By | January 19, 2011 at 1:30 pm | One comment

They say that a difficult, tumultuous life is prime fuel for comedy. If that’s the case, then Mike DeStefano has more than enough to last a lifetime. Drawing on a rough past that includes drug addiction, the loss of his wife, and an HIV diagnosis, DeStefano will move from his successful venture on NBC’s Last Comic Standing to a new one man show called Drugs, Disease more...


Gwyneth Paltrow and bad habits detract from an otherwise fun Saturday Night Live

By | January 17, 2011 at 10:39 am | No comments

This week’s Saturday Night Live spanned the (occasional) good, (mostly) bad and (sometimes even) ugly of poking fun at all forms of entertainment. The show began with a throwaway Cold Open led by Greta Van Sustern (Kristen Wiig) introducing a panel of Fox News regulars attempting civility, only to be tripped up by James Carville (Bill Hader). Next came a paltry more...


Comedy Matters with Robert Kelly, Anthony Jeselnik, more

Strip Action On any given night you never know who you’ll see at The Comic Strip. One night recently we got the word that Kevin Hart would be stopping by, and as soon as people found out, the club was sold out. And that was on a Monday night. Then again, Kevin has about 300,000 followers on Twitter. One tweet from Kevin and you better have a club that seats more...
