    Comedian Bonnie McFarlane has been working to bring this documentary to the masses for a while now. In the documentary the comedian sets out on a quest – with her husband Rich Vos often in tow – to investigative the age old debate, are women funny?

    McFarlane reports back her findings from interviewing many comedians such as Wanda Sykes, Joy Behar, Sarah Silverman, Rosie O’Donnell, Lisa Lampanelli, Joan Rivers, Colin Quinn, Dane Cook, Chris Rock, Artie Lange, Tom Arnold, Patrice O’Neal, Chelsea Peretti, club owners, bookers and man on the street interviews. It also chronicles the lives of Bonnie McFarlane and Vos as they make the movie and deal with their own struggles doing stand-up all across the country.

    The documentary was produced by Greg “Opie” Hughes, from SiriusXM’s The Opie & Anthony Show. We got the chance to see an early screening of the documentary and you’re in for a treat. She also discussed the documentary with us last year as she was still in the development stages.

    Is a definitive answer to the question made? Probably not, but a documentary stocked with this many comedians, at least we’ll be able to definitely state that the documentary is funny.

    Katt Williams knows who shot Suge Knight because he was there and saw nobody do it, wait what?

    Katt Williams is always good for some interesting news stories. We know that the comedian and Death Row Records mogul Suge Night were seen palling around every once in a while. This weekend Knight was the victim of a shooting out in LA during the VMAs.

    So when TMZ decided to ask Katt Williams what his thoughts were on the topic we got ourselves this video clip. In it, Williams looking like he had himself a late night, declared that he was both at the scene of the shooting, and that “nobody” shot Suge Knight. It all makes perfect Katt Williams sense. Just watch.

    Watch Seth Meyers’ Emmy Awards opening monologue

    Last night, Seth Meyers hosted the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards. Monday is an unusual day to hold the Emmys, which Meyer’s explained in his opening monologue that is was partially due to the MTV VMA’s being held the day before. “MTV still has an award show for music videos even though they no longer show music videos, that’s like  network TV holding an  award show and giving all the trophies to cable and Netflix.” Watch Meyers’ full monologue here. Personal thank you to Mr. Meyers for the dig at drama shows that submitted themselves as comedies. A real sh*tty trend we must end. Bravo.

    Donald Glover is finally playing Spider-Man

    Miles Morales, voiced by Donald GloverA few years back the internet was clamoring for the opportunity for Donald Glover to portray Spider-Man in the reboot of the live action movie. That role eventually went to Andrew Garfield. Then, about a year later Marvel announced that new, alternate universe version of the web slinger would be portrayed by Miles Morales, a 13 year old kid who was world’s first half-black, half-Hispanic Spider-man. A decision according to the book’s author, Brian Michael Bendis stated was directly related to the Glover/Spider-Man fandom. Glover countered this gesture by sporting Spidey pajamas from time to time on Community. He also relayed that little kids would come up to him at his Childish Gambino shows asking him to autograph the Morales versions of the comic book.

    Fast forward about 4 years time to present day and Donald Glover is Miles Morales. This Sunday, the new season of Disney’s animated series Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warriors begins and will take Peter Parker through parallel worlds to catch his nemesis, the Green Goblin. In one of those worlds, Peter Parker will encounter the Miles Morales version of Spider-Man and it’s voiced by – you guessed it – Donald Glover. Read More

    Michael Cera stopped by the Late Show last night for a chat with David Letterman. The Arrested Development star (and proud musician) talked about his new German girlfriend and their recent road trip. Of course, it’s not a real road trip without a stop to see the world’s biggest basket. Who wouldn’t be impressed by that site… well..
