Sir Elton John will be the host of this weekend’s episode of Saturday Night Live, he’s also pulling double duty and going to be the musical guest.
Watch some video clips of him doing promo videos with Jason Sudekis. I learned two things from watching these promos 1) Elton John has a lot of sunglasses and 2) Any attempt at humor involving British Accents must have a Yackety Sax bit, us Yanks are just abiding by the rules.
Bobby Bottleservice (aka Nick Kroll), our favorite Italian American who loves his mother very much, has an important question to ask you. This is actually a real contest so definitely think of some good submissions. For official rules go here.
Thank you…very cool!
If there is one comedian who’s albums are worth the money it’s Reggie Watts. Think about it, any other comedian or band will replay their latest tracks ad nauseum.

Jack and Reggie got acquainted during Conan O’Brien’s Legally Prohibited from Being Funny on Television tour where Reggie was opening and Jack made a few special appearances. White later invited Reggie to his studio in Nashville to perform a special show that he would record and release for his label. Read the rest of this entry
