The Lonely Island promo train just keep rolling on and we’re getting updates even more frequently than just on #WackWednesdays. Their latest video for “Diaper Money” just hit the web and it’s exactly what I’d image grown ass dudes rapping about. Lyrics about coffins, diapers, and wives p*ssies. This video has it all. It’s also dirty and NSFW. The Wack Album hits stores on June 11th.
With the premiere of reality-comedy series Small Town Security, we got to thinking about all the comedians who have portrayed security guards in film. You’ve got Todd Barry as the pepper spray threatening security guard in Road Trip, Martin Lawrence in National Security, and more recently Seth Rogen in Observe and Report. What draws comedians to the role of a security guard and why would anyone be interested a reality show based on the watchdogs? For the most part, the guard role is reserved for a small cameo appearance in a movie with a memorable punchline that aims to provide comic relief. For comedians, it’s a humorous role that gives the artist film credits and exposes their face to a broader audience. Other times, the guard figure is used as an obstacle the central characters have to overcome in order to achieve their goal like for instance Brodie and T.S. dodging LaFours in Mallrats.

Jen Kirkman was the guest comedian on Conan and she dropped in to talk about important things like why married couples are awful, and why there’s no person that comes in between a woman and her hair extensions. Kirkman just released her book I Can Barely Take Care of Myself which is about her life without kids. Pick it up and do some reading this weekend.
It basically looks exactly like it used to except for there is no Drew Carey really. Same Ryan Stiles, Colin Mochrie, Wayne Brady and even the band lady is the same lady. Only difference is more Aisha Tyler. Upgrade CW, upgrade.
Yippee! Mike Lawrence is going to release a new stand-up album. Lawrence is a TLB favorite ’round these parts. Earlier this year we picked him as one of our comedians to watch this year.
Mike’s debut stand-up album, Sadamantium will be released on May 28th. Get the X-Men/Wolverine reference? Of course you do, as Mike’s one of the biggest comic book fans we know.
A new album is not the only big news Mike has lined up this month. Somewhere in the middle of all the action, he also taped his first ever Half Hour TV special for Comedy Central which is debuting on May 31st, just a few days after the release of Sadamantium. Big times are happening for Lawrence, strap in and let’s go for the ride.
There’s nothing left to say other than lay your eyeballs on the badass album art. Read the rest of this entry
I’ll bet you never thought you’d read that headline on this site right? But we were inspired by a Tweet that Robin Williams put out into the wild the other day after Kardashian showed up at a Met Gala dressed in a flowery dress.
While Kardahsian’s dress came with mixed reviews, it was Robin Williams that pointed out we might have seen the dress before. In fact, he might have worn said dress when he donned drag in the 1993 movie Mrs. Doubtfire.
So we figure we’d poke some fun ourselves and see what our readers think about the outfits. Who wore it better? Read the rest of this entry
Today marks the release of comedian Al Madrigal’s new CD/DVD, Why Is the Rabbit Crying?.
It’s Madrigal’s first stand-up comedy special for Comedy Central and first since he’s become a correspondent on one of the channel’s flagship shows, The Daily Show as well as a regular on the Jay Mohr sitcom Gary Unmarried, Shorties Watchin’ Shorties, Nick Swardson’s Pretend Time, or the short-lived Free Agents with fellow comedians Natasha Leggero and Mo Mandel.
While many might be experiencing Madrigal’s stand-up for the first time with this release, trust us when we say Madrigal knows his way around the stage. Ever since winning the best comedian award at the 2004 Aspen Comedy Festival he’s had numerous appearances on the late night show circuit and TV shows. Firmly placing him as one of the best Latino comedians to crossover into the mainstream of comedy. A notion that Madrigal finds funny for the San Francisco native (who was born on the 4th of July) said in a recent interview on The Adam Carolla podcast that he didn’t even realize he was considered a Latino comedian, he just thought he was a comedian.
