It’s almost time to watch the ball drop and ring in the new year. As we kick old man 2010 in the ass as he goes out the door and before we all head out to our respective parties to welcome baby 2011 here’s some things in the world of comedy we’re looking forward to in 2011.

So, the year is ending and 2011 is just around the corner. But here’s a Laugh Button recap of things in comedy that had us talking in 2010 for better or for worse.

The awards show will go down on January 8th, at the Palms Casino in Las Vegas and Lampanelli will host with Riley Steele and Tori Black, two adult actresses whose work I swear I am unfamiliar with. My mother reads this site man!

Jeff “The Dude” Bridges brought it all home this weekend as the final host of Saturday Night Live in 2010. With it, he brought his usual cool edge to the show as he opened the night with a familiar face, Cookie Monster, who’s spent the last few weeks auditioning for a hosting role on the show. The duo performed a perfectly swell musical ditty which set the pace for the rest of the night. Here’s the recap: Read the rest of this entry
Well well well it’s looking like things are A-OK in Whoville. 2010 is ending and I still haven’t seen a holiday hawk dammit, with the next two weeks off I think I need to make that a mission.
I should call Jim Gaffifan and Michael Ian Black to see if they can help me out. Read the rest of this entry
