  • This week in comedy: we parted ways with “Parks and Recreation”

    Parks And Recreation It’s been a sad couple of weeks for Parks and Recreation recently. Last week, we said an unexpected and heartbreaking goodbye to one of the show’s producers, comedian Harris Wittels. This week, the farewells continued; the show that he spent so much time around ended, and the comedy community continued to mourn his passing. In fact, the show’s final episode ended with a montage to remember Wittels by. Also particularly powerful was Aziz Ansari’s tribute to Wittels, who was a very close friend. Outside Wittels memorials, the Parks cast stopped by Late Night with Seth Meyers, a guy who once spent a lot of time with star Amy Poehler, to sing “Bye, Bye Li’l Sebastian” one last time. There was lots of making out involved.

Very little is off-limits for May in his very first Netflix original stand-up comedy special, Unruly. It was filmed live in front of a raucous, fist-pumping crowd at Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre in Atlanta. May unleashes his hilariously raunchy, no-holds-barred perspective on everything from airline travel and the news media, to Chick-fil-A and everybody being a little racist when they drive. Read More

    Bieber is asking for it, literally, from Seth Rogan, “All I want for my birthday is for you to roast me”

    Seth-RogenIt looks like Justin Bieber is ready to take the Interview star head on by asking him to roast him during his special. In honoring their social media feud, Bieber made his request on Twitter. Seth Rogen has been very open with his distaste for the singer, having previously said that he hates him and has been quoted saying, “He’s a good example of someone you meet, who you think you’re going to hate, and then you get to hate him as much as you thought,” he said. “You meet him, and he lives up to every one of your expectations of how you hope he will be.” Rogen continued to rehash a story about when he and Bieber both appeared on a German talk show, only to further criticize him by referring to him as a “d*ck” and “motherf*cker.” He furthered his statements by posting a tweet saying, “All jokes aside, Justin Bieber is a piece of sh*t.” Ok, seems pretty clear to us. So what better way to put the past behind you than to have these two meet again on the roasting stage. Here are the tweets from the Biebs. Read More
