The Daily Show attempted to cover the tense situation in Ferguson on last night’s show by sending newest correspondent, Michael Che, to Missouri. Of course, Che didn’t quite feel safe as an unarmed black man in Ferguson, so he reported from St.Louis… until he learned about the recent shooting there. But where on Earth is it safe for an unarmed black man? Turns out, nowhere.

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 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.

We all, deep inside of us, have the capacity for terrible, vicious road rage. If you don’t, you are A) a dirty liar, or B) don’t drive. Jake Weisman captures that inner fire that boils in us all when we get cut off in the new sketch from WOMEN comedy, “Driving.” Of course, there’s always a simple solution for road rage… why is that?
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.
