We’ve mentioned it many times but this Saturday, October 4th is the premiere of Jerrod Carmichael’s first stand-up special, Love At The Store premieres on HBO.

Get ‘em Jerrod, er or as the council addresses him in the clip Jarod. Read More
Walmart blames Tracy Morgan in NJ Turnpike accident due to lack of seatbelt wearing, because Walmart is classy
I’m not a law man, but I believe Walmart just pulled the, “she was asking for it because of how she dressed” defense. Rather than the “we’re sorry our big ass truck plowed into the back of your stopped vehicle at a high rate of speed” defense.
Today Walmart delivered its answer in a New Jersey federal court to Tracy Morgan’s lawsuit arising from a six-car accident on the New Jersey Turnpike earlier this summer. Among nine affirmative defenses, Walmart says that injuries “were caused, in whole or in part, by plaintiffs’ failure to properly wear an appropriate available seat belt restraint device.”
Morgan was among several people injured who are now suing Walmart for negligence. Morgan and his lawyer filed suit in July questioning whether Walmart driver Kevin Roper was overtired during the time of the accident. Read More

Football season is in full swing and you know what that means? Actually, we have no idea because we made a vow to not watch the sport this season. We’re boycotting it because the Indianapolis Colts have cut one of our favorite comedians, Jim Gaffigan. That’s right, little known fact, Gaffigan was the team’s “captain” and things didn’t go that well for him during the pre-season. #standwithgaffigan. Read More
Season 40 of Saturday Night Live is upon us. With it comes a revamped look and feel of the show, some new faces are up, some old ones are gone and we’re excited to see how it all shakes out for Lorne Michaels and the crew. Host Chris Pratt was the first to test out the new digs. While it’s Pratt’s first time on the show, you’d be hard pressed to think of someone that has the potential to become a lifer for SNL. Pratt is a great mix of talent, humor, and nice-guyism that hopes are high that he’d gel with the cast and deliver a great start to the season and for the most part he did. Pratt was hugely likable and impressive with what he had to work with, including some rapping, song performance, and crotch touching… a hefty amount of crotch touches. Read More
Jon Stewart is always ripping on Congress and news media for how they operate a narrative for political issues. However, last night on The Daily Show, Stewart went on the attack a bit stronger than usual. In fact, he was pretty passionate about both the way both Congress and the national media are treating legitimate world threats like Ebola and ISIS. He couldn’t help but lash out at how they’re making a non-story like #LatteSalute a thing rather than address real problems. Read More
