    Robin Williams headed back to TV for first time in 31 years

    That’s right, after 31 years, Robin Williams is finally making his return to TV in CBS’s The Crazy Ones. Williams will co-star along side Sarah Michelle Gellar in the upcoming prime time show. The story is about a father (Williams) and a daughter (Gellar) who run an advertising firm. As you may have guessed, the father is pretty crazy and off the hinges, while the daughter is much more practical. The series was created by David E. Kelley, who’s created Ally McBeal, Boston LegalPicket Fences, and a million other TV shows. I’m not going to lie, although the show sounds pretty cheesy, it looks really funny. The Crazy Ones is set to air September 26th at 9pm on CBS. Check out a behind-the-scenes look. Read More

    Dan St. Germain on Conan, ‘My body is not a wonderland’

    Dan St. Germain was the guest comedian on Conan last night. He covered a lot of ground in his 5 minutes including the terrible plot of Taken 2, the creepiest hail Mary pass of all time, and some good ol’ masturbation jokes.

    Dan Aykroyd sure knows how to make an entrance on Fallon

    Last night Dan Aykroyd made his first appearance on Late Night With Jimmy and he did it with a bang. As he and Fallon pulled no stops as they made a Blues Brothers themed introduction for the former Saturday Night Live cast members. SNL cast members should reunite on Fallon more often.

    Bob Saget knows what he’s talking about on ‘That’s What I’m Talkin’ About’ (review)

    That's What I'm Talkin' AboutIf you’re unaware that Bob Saget’s sense of humor is the complete antithesis of his character on the long-running family sitcom, Full House, or as the host of America’s Funniest Home Videos, than I suggest you hunt down a copy of the filthy movie The Aristocrats and spend a night in. In fact, his vulgar comedic sensibilities came so far before his role as the doe-eyed, feather-coifed father of 3 that it’s a wonder he even landed those roles in the first place. What goes without question is that his sitcom career will forever me immortalized in Saget’s punch lines as he spends a great deal of time on his newest album, That’s What I’m Talkin’ About, reminding folks of that he is friends with John Stamos and Dave Coulier. The real star of the album, second only to Coulier, was Bob’s father (“He would just tell me sick shit, which is why I became a comedian before I did anything else”) who’s stories and anecdotes serve to illustrate and explain the reasoning behind Saget’s comedy.

    Stephen Colbert surprises Jimmy Fallon on Late Night

    Last night’s episode of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon started no different than any other, Jimmy whipped through his monologue then sat down at his desk to announce the guests for the night and talk about how exciting the show was going to be. As soon as he said “We have a great show tonight guys…” “Get Lucky,” by Daft Punk came on the speakers and for a split second you can see the confusion on Jimmy’s face. Of course who else would come dancing out but Mr. Stephen Colbert. He danced up to Jimmy’s desk the two began dancing together, then as soon as it started, Stephen danced off stage and back behind the curtains. That was it. Sadly, I could not find a video of just the two dancing so here is the entire episode. Fast-forward to 7:20 and you’ll see it all, as it happened live.

While there’s not much plot given to the film it you know the story of Mitty and his daydreams you are beginning to get the hang of it. Also in the film, Kristen Wiig, Adam Scott, and Patton Oswalt. There’s not much dialogue in the trailer, but you can learn a lot from just images and there’s some really beautiful imagery set to the excellent Of Monsters And Men song, “Dirty Paws.” Read More

    Comedy Central once considered reviving ‘Tough Crowd’ without Colin Quinn, possibly with Greg Giraldo

    Tough Crowd with Colin QuinnAt last week’s Just For Laughs festival in Montreal, one of the highlights was Colin Quinn’s keynote address. It was less a speech than it was Quinn giving advice to the assemblage of comedians, agents, managers and TV execs. While he had the podium, Quinn mentioned that Comedy Central, the network on which his show Tough Crowd With Colin Quinn ran from 2002-2004 thought about bringing the show back with a different host.

    “Here’s the thing about Tough Crowd, I created that show and I brought that show from NBC to Comedy Central and here’s what bothers me, they tried to replace the show, without me, after the show left.” Quinn said during the keynote, “And this goes to point something out. You can’t just replace sh*t. Every comedian is individual. I’m not the best fucking host, I’m not even the best host of Tough Crowd, it’s a creative business. You have to hire comedians as consultants.” What was pretty much a passing statement during his keynote speech was brought up afterward when Quinn appeared on the live taping of Robert Kelly’s You Know What Dude podcast.
