  • Dave Attell returns this Saturday with new stand-up special, ‘Road Work’ and late night uncensored stand-up series

    Dave Attell

    Dave Attell is going to release a new stand-up special and we’re pumped! Attell is easily one of the greatest living stand-up comedians on the planet. Don’t think so? Try to conjure up someone more respected, more imitated, and more funny? Can’t do it can you? Also, “more funny” isn’t grammatically correct. Attell isn’t just making his return to Comedy Central this weekend in a small way; rather Dave’s dropping a double dose of depravity and debauchery twice on TV. Read More

    Robert Kelly and Elizabeth Gillies join FX’s ‘Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll’ pilot

    Robert KellyLooks like Denis Leary’s Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll TV show just got a bit funnier. The fact that the very entertaining Denis Leary is writing and executive producing the show already speaks volumes. Add on top of that, John Corbett is set to act in the upcoming show and now we are happy to report that Elizabeth Gillies and our good friend, Robert Kelly have been inked to act as well.

    Gillies is set to play Gigi, a 22 year old singer whose only goal is to become bigger than Lady GaGa. Kelly on the other hand will star as Bam Bam, drummer for The Heathens (Leary’s group). However, unlike Johnny (played by Leary) Bam Bam isn’t holding out hope to return to the spotlight.

    The show is set to start filming in New York this spring.
