Fox News can never seem to keep their foot out of their mouth. Recently, Sean Hannity referred to rapper Jay-Z as a “former crack dealer” in a recent segment. He really couldn’t let it go. It seems Fox News has a new rule, everyone must be labeled by the worst thing they’ve ever done. Although, it seems only the black community gets this treatment. That’s when Jessica Williams stepped up to defend Hova’s honor on The Daily Show and adjust Fox News’ script accordingly. I don’t know, if I employed people who are addicted to perscription drugs, commited burgarly, or conspired to commit murder… I wouldn’t be throwing shade at anyone.
It was another meeting of the late night hosts on Tuesday’s Late Night with Seth Meyers. Meyers’ guest was the soon-to-be host of the Late Late Show, James Corden. Naturally, the two talked about their new hosting gigs. Corden reveals that Meyers was the first person to reach out to Corden and congratulate him on his new job. Corden will step in and host his first Late Late show on March 23rd with new band leader, Reggie Watts. Read More
LA comedian Matt Ingebretson is fantastic at making short films. He’s also great at disposing incriminating evidence. For his latest Youtube gem (directed by Pat Bishop of WOMEN Comedy), Ingebretson gets his hand dirty in “Burying a Body in the Woods.” Well… I mean, he does get dirty. I know I just said he’s great at disposing of evidence, but maybe call someone else if you want a body buried.
With The Colbert Report wrapping up it’s last week, Comedy Central has released the first promo for the show’s successor. The Daily Show’s Senior Black Correspondent Larry Wilmore will host a new show, The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore. Originally called The Minority Report, the name was changed to avoid brand confusion and to better match his lead-in show, The Daily Show. The Nightly Show will premiere on CC January 19th.
Eric Andre was a guest on last night’s Conan. Although Andre also hosts his own show, he hasn’t being doing it for nearly as long as Conan has. However, Andre insisted that he could do a better monologue than Conan. Given a mic, and a super supportive (kind of psychotic) audience member, Andre delivered a few monologue jokes on the spot. Check it out. Read More
Stephen Colbert is known for being quite the Tolkien nerd. For last night’s episode of The Colbert Report, Colbert had his biggest guest on the show to date (literally): Smaug the Dragon. This was a very dangerous interview as Smaug is infamous for eating hosts (but luckily he had just filled up on the ladies of The View). Like Colbert, Smaug is a fellow fiscal conservative. In his interview, Smaug announces his support of Rand Paul, talks about the Hollywood liberal bias, and reveals he’s never read The Hobbit. Check it out.
Like host Seth Meyers, Late Night writer Amber Ruffin used to live in Amsterdam. She even is married to a Dutch man, but that doesn’t mean she wants to go celebrate Christmas with any Dutch traditions. On last night’s Late Night with Seth Meyers, Ruffin breaks down the pretty damn racist traditions carried out every December in Amsterdam (and throughout the Netherlands). From dressing up as Santa’s racist sidekick “Black Pete,” to the not-to-whimsical names to Dutch candy… some Dutch traditions are better off dead.
Martin Freeman (The Hobbit, Sherlock) will host Saturday Night Live this week for the first time accompanied by musical guest Charli XCX. The wonderful Kate McKinnon joins Martin in this week’s SNL promos, and boy do they love to party. Dance parties, tea parties, Benny Hill parties, those crazy cats know how to have fun. Check it out.
It was a meeting of the soon-to-be-network-late-night-hosts on The Colbert Report last night. While Stephen Colbert will step down to take over the Late Show on CBS for David Letterman, James Corden will follow as the new host of the Late Late Show. Colbert gave Corden some advice on hosting a late night show. The pair also talked about their shared love of musical theater and even sang a Christmas carol together. Check it out.
With The Colbert Report winding down this month, the show is certainly going out with a bang. For last night’s episode, Stephen Colbert and crew shot the show in Washington D.C. and had President Obama on as their guest. Obama did more than play guest though. The President took over “The Word” segment in an effort to show Colbert how easy it is to do his job. Ok, but now let’s see how Colbert handles president for the day. Only fair, yes? Check it out.
