  • Attend a sneak peek at the new Adult Swim miniseries, “Neon Joe, Werewolf Hunter” in NYC on December 3

    Neon Joe 2

    SPONSORED: Neon Joe, Werewolf Hunter is an upcoming mini-series set to run for five episodes on Adult Swim, created by and starring Jon Glaser. It’s set to air each night beginning December 7 and will conclude on December 11. In celebration, Adult Swim will be hosting and presenting a Neon Joe, Werewolf Hunter Premiere event in New York City on December 3 including a Q&A featuring Jon Glaser (Parks and Rec, Girls), Stephanie March (Law & Order: SVU), Scott Adsit (30 Rock), and Steve Cirbus (Delocated). As the story goes, Glaser arbitrarily paired two random pieces of clothing together and made a joke on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon about a fake show called Neon Joe, Werewolf Hunter that did not exist or have any intention of existing. Adult Swim called him on it, and now it’s a real show about a guy who dresses in neon, hunts werewolves, and shows up to solve the case when a sudden plague of inexplicable werewolf fatalities strikes a sleepy little town in Vermont. Now is your chance to come see the results. Join the aforementioned participants for an early look at the first two episodes of the five-part miniseries at BAM Rose Cinemas. You can RSVP for free here. And if you don’t live in NYC, move here already… or at least visit on the 3rd. Read More

    Hillary Clinton firing back against comedians, demanding jokes and video to be removed from web

    Hillary Clinton

    Whenever we asked comedians in the past if anything in comedy is “off limits”, its always been a mixed response. Half of them will say no, with the other half claiming yes. The argument being that you can always find the “funny” in any situation and circumstance whether it is tragic or not. In this case, politics. Political comedy has been around since the dawn of the first joke and “making fun of” or “poking at” politicians is nothing new. Well, it seems the times they are changing. With the rise of the internet and dominate streaming video services such as YouTube ruling the roost, these jokes can live forever in the internet graveyard. A politicians worst nightmare. Well, guess who’s fighting back. Read More
