  • Trevor Noah is the current favorite to replace Jon Stewart on The Daily Show

    Trevor NoahAs we know, Jon Stewart is marked to step down as host of The Daily Show later this year. As far as speculation as to the replacement we know there’s a short list. But now it appears one of the show’s correspondents has emerged as the front runner. Variety is reporting that South African comedian and one of the newest additions to the show, Trevor Noah, is said person.

    While this is completely speculation at the moment, if this were to happen, it would drastically change the late night landscape as the back-to-back of Noah (of mixed race) and Larry Wilmore would offer a big injection of diversity in the current whitewashed late night landscape. Read More

    The Daily Show says goodbye to Jason Jones

    Jason Jones

    Last night’s episode of The Daily Show was the final one for longtime correspondent Jason Jones. Both Jones and his wife/TDS correspondent Samantha Bee are leaving for other projects which include producing and writing their own shows, and a TBS show for Bee. Needless to say, this is not the last time we’ll be seeing the last of Jones and Bee. However, it is the last time we will see him as a TDS correspondent. Rather than do a final segment, host Jon Stewart called Jones to his desk to give him the proper sendoff and ran a highlight of some of his best moments on The Daily Show, which included a surprisingly large amount of Jason Jones flesh being flashed on screen.

    Super TroopersGreat news Super Troopers fans (which should be all of you). Yesterday Broken Lizard announced they were launching an Indigogo campaign to raise money so they could finally shoot the sequel to the cult movie Super Troopers. The comedy troupe had been talking about sequel for years, had a script written and just needed the help from a movie house to produce it. After what must’ve been way too many “nos” they just decided to take it to their fans and ask for them to help fund it. Fans turned out in droves and by the end of the day they had already raised over half the amount of money. Today, around the 5pm ET time, after being live for a little over a day, the full $2million dollars was raised. Boom! You can still donate to the film by going to www.supertroopers2movie.com. At the time of this writing they’re 40K over the goal and counting. Read More

    A man was kicked off his Southwest flight for wearing a Broad City t-shirt

    Broad City T-ShirtAfter SXSW, a Brooklyn man, Daniel Podolsky, was travelling by plane from Dallas to Chicago when the plane had to make an emergency landing in St. Louis because of weather. During this trip, Podolsky was wearing a Broad City t-shirt. Simple enough right, who wouldn’t want to rep Ilana and Abbi and their awesome show. The rub is the shirt says in bold letters across the front, “Broad F*cking City” across the front. Podolsky was given the shirt as promo while at the Austin for the festival. When Podolsky was re-boarding the plane, flight crew asked him to conceal the shirt by putting a jacket on changing his shirt or turning it inside out. Read More
