Comedian Kevin Hart is set to host Saturday Night Live this weekend. It’s the second time a bona fide legit stand-up comedian is hosting this season. The first time around we were treated to a fantastic Louis C.K. episode just days after Hurricane Sandy. While Kevin Hart doesn’t have a storm to contend with, he does have the ability to keep the comedian good streak alive. Here are some promo clips where they pull out the classic short comedian in an overcoat on top of Bobby Moynihan trick.
Turns out that one can have too much of Whitney Cummings because after airing twelve episodes, E! announced its ended production of her late night talk show Love You, Mean It.

Meanwhile, her eponymous show on NBC isn’t faring as well and will probably be on the cancellation bubble at the end of the season. The biggest bummer in all of this is that we’ll not be able to check in on Cummings’ Love You, Mean It co-host and comedian Julian McCullough on a weekly basis.
POW! POW! POW!

It’s an area of life that seems to trap many males. You get to know a gal, treat her like a princess and when the time comes to take things to the next level, you get shut down. Why? Well, because you are only friends. What crap! Today we share one of favorite sketches of the week which has to do with just that, escaping the friend zone.
The sketch was created by Aaron Black who is a New Jersey native that is currently pounding the pavement in Los Angeles. He is fighting the good fight of obtaining stage time for his stand-up routine as he continues to chase his dream of being a comedian. Read the rest of this entry
