  • Watch the video of Ridiculous Six Native actors talking with producers on set of Adam Sandler’s film

    Vanilla Ice, Adam Sandler, David SpadeAdam Sandler’s latest film, Ridiculous Six, has been under a lot of scrutiny over the last few weeks.

Also in the video, many of the actors made it clear they weren’t particularly happy with Sandler playing a faux-Apache and being portrayed as the film’s “hero.” Read More

    Slate Graynor

    Details have finally emerged about Jenny Slate’s FX pilot we reported on back in early March. It’s now been revealed that Slate will team up with For a Good Time, Call… star Ari Graynor. And they’ll be hitting the road.

Robespierre wrote the pilot with Holm and will direct it, while both are serving as executive producers alongside Slate.  Slate is a co-star of Married, which returns for season 2 in July, also on FX. Graynor recently starred in the short-lived CBS comedy Bad Teacher. Her other credits include Kroll Show, American Dad, Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist, and The Sitter. There’s no official title for the project at this time.

    Lewis Black announces The Rant is Due: Part Deux Fall Tour 2015

    Lewis Black

    Lewis Black, the Grammy Award-winning stand-up comedian, is one of the most prolific and popular performers working today. He is not only a stand-up comedian, but also an actor and author. He is one of a few performers to sell out multiple renowned theaters, including Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Brooks Atkinson Theatre, New York City Center, the Main Stage at the Mirage in Las Vegas and most recently, a sold-out Broadway run at the Richard Rodgers Theatre in New York City. He is a passionate performer who is a more pissed-off optimist than a mean-spirited curmudgeon. Lewis is the rare comic who can cause an audience to laugh themselves into incontinence while making compelling points about the absurdity of our world. Lewis Black came into national prominence with his appearances on The Daily Show in 1996. Read More

    Chappelle has a bad night in Detroit and fans want their money back

    Dave

    It was an interesting evening in Detroit this past Thursday for Dave Chappelle. He’s been on a tear as of late with sold-out shows all along his current tour. However, the second leg of a doubleheader during his two night stay in the Motor City left something to be desired. TMZ reports the crowd became disruptive and frustrated with the comedian as his slurry speech led to claims of Chappelle being to drunk to perform. Was it just a bad set? Was he drunk? Either way, the people are demanding a refund as tickets to the performance went for upwards of $240. You be the judge. As we all know in the comedy world, not every show is homerun. Roll the clip.

That’s because they just finished raising $4.4 million in just 30 days in their campaign pitch to make a sequel to the cult favorite Super Troopers. This goes down as the second most successful crowdfunding campaign for a movie. The Indiegogo campaign was funded by over 50,000 contributors. It reached it’s goal of $2 million in just over a day, 26 hours to be exact. Production is set to go into action this summer, 14 years after the original Super Troopers was released.

The original Super Troopers was made for $1.2 million and acquired by Searchlight at the 2001 Sundance Film Festival. It grossed $23 million worldwide. That doesn’t include the extra life gained through word of mouth post theatrical release on various formats including DVD. Some of the fun perks that were sold to entice fans to contribute to the sequel fund came through including “The Best Men” incentive for $20,000: “All five members of Broken Lizard will attend your wedding and act as your groomsmen (or bridesmaids). We’ll even bring you a gift.” Read More
