  • Update: Artie Lange hospitalized after going into diabetic shock, Hospital trying to commit him to mental ward

    Artie LangeUPDATE 4/16- 5:53pm ET Things have just gotten worse for Artie. Just moments ago Artie posted to his Facebook page that the hospital is not allowing him to be released from the hospital where he was checked into. Officials at the hospital apparently want the comedian to remain under their care and are trying to place Lange into a mental ward because he’s trying to leave their care. Lange stated, “Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak Michigan is forcing me into a mental ward just cause I want to leave. I need your help. Calls. Radio. Love u.”

    Artie Lange is a comedian whose had his share of health issues the last few years. However, since he mounted a return to radio with then co-host Nick DiPaolo, Lange appeared to have turned a corner. Today, he was reminded that there’s still some work to be done as he was hospitalized for going into diabetic shock. Diabetic shock can be a big deal, it’s usually too much insulin in a person’s system causing them to faint, requiring immediate medical attention.

    Today, Lange released an image of him in a hospital bed stating, “In the hospital outside of Detroit after going into diabetic shock. Trying to get better. Sorry for missing gigs.” Forcing him to cancel some scheduled shows. It appears he’s canceled all of his shows through this week as the next date currently listed on his show is for the 19th in LA.

    Cool thing to buy this week: Christian Finnegan, ‘The Fun Part’

    The Fun PartWe get it, it’s Tuesday, it’s raining outside, and you’re sitting here wondering if today is going to amount to anything. Well lucky you! Because one of the funniest comics out there has officially dropped his new comedy album today. Now we’re getting to the fun part.

    Christian Finnegan’s latest special The Fun Part is now available everywhere and it is hilarious. We last saw Finnegan on CD with the release of 2009′s Au Contraire and we’ve worn out telling our friends the jokes on that album so a new album is hitting us just at the right moment. Finnegan recorded The Fun Part live at the Wilbur Theatre (the Wilbuahhhh kid) in Boston and combines Finnegan’s signature style of political satire mixed in with a good fart joke every once in a while. Let’s describe it as “smart stupid jokes.” As an added bonus, The Fun Part is also available for stream on “The Netflix.” So there’s really no excuse to miss out. Read More

    We put on our tightest pants and hang with Steel Panther

    We got gangbanged by Steel Panther! Just the other day the band released their new album, All You Can Eat to the masses and in normal Steel Panther style, it rips. On album release day, the band invited The Laugh Button to visit them in the Gibson Studios in NYC to spend some time with them. There, they performed some acoustic songs and let us tape it exclusively to share with our readers (that’s you). Before they left, we played a round of “Three Minutes With” and even tossed in the most ridiculous fan-submitted question we could find via Twitter.

    The band was hilarious for the entire two-hours we were with them. We watched them count down guitar riffs, in which drummer Styx Zadinia accidentally caught a guitar in the face from Satchel, but Styx recovered, and informed us that the Japanese version of a Les Paul guitar is a “Res Paul,” it literally made us snort.

    Thank You Internet! It’s ‘Time to Dye’ (video)

    This week is Easter, the holiest of holidays for those of the Christian faith. But if you think about it, Easter is probably the most metal of holidays as well. A crucifixion, followed by the guy coming back to life a few days later? Pretty intense, especially if you’ve seen Mel Gibson’s torture porn film The Passion of the Christ. Writer/director Ansel Wallenfang disagrees, however. Read More

    Don Jamieson Twitter Reviews ‘Game of Thrones,’ episode 4:2

    Welcome to my Twitter reviews of the new season of Game Of Thrones. I had so much fun NOT watching The Walking Dead and reviewing it I decided to NOT watch this show too.

That’s like fans of this show meeting a Dungeon AND a Dragon. Possible spoilers ahead. Read More

    Conan O’Brien and his 50 cameos for the MTV Movie Awards opening montage

    Conan O’Brien set out to start the MTV Movie Awards off with a bang and he certainly accomplished it. As stated in the clip, the previous record for cameos in an MTV Movie Awards opening was eight, so Conan brought us 50. Conan’s big opening was great too. I personally liked his sign off for the night the best, “Thanks for joining us, enjoy watching this as a rerun!” Read More
