“Weird Al” Yankovic’s Alpocalypse rolls on. The king of the polka and the parody song will make a return to TV on October 1st. Comedy Central will premiere the live recording of the tour Yankovic embarked on after the release of his most recent album Alpocalypse. During the tour, Al unleashed all his classics and many tracks from Alpocalpse like “Perform This Way,” “Polka Face,” and “CNR.” Read More
Dan St. Germain might have just found the movie role that projects him into the stratosphere. His new flick, The Fluffer is a bold move and puts him on par with Mikey Rourke’s stellar performance in The Wrestler. A triumph I tell you, a triumph. I’m thinking Golden Globe and Academy Award…then after that, maybe Cable Ace Award or Blockbuster Entertainment Award.
…as an aside, I thought fluffers used a different part of their body to, um, “get the job done”?
Ya see, somewhere along the line some people got it into their head that girls can’t be funny. But that doesn’t keep them from trying – amiright! amiright!?
Amy Schumer, Maria Bamford, Nikki Glaser,and Jackie Monahan team up to take us behind the curtain to peek into the day in the life of a female comedian. This includes attending “The Comedy Academy for Ladies” where they learn of the importance of shoulder pads, and figuring out how to write even though they have “pesky breasts” and stuff. It’s hard working around those things sometimes.
Also note the cameos by Kirk Fox and T.J. Miller for added greatness to this clip.
The Roast of Charlie Sheen is scheduled to air next Monday, September 19th. But since it was recorded this past weekend and this is the internet, clips from said roast have already hit the web so that’s what we’ll do. Here are a few including an entrance that I’m not 100% sure needed an appearance by Slash. Read More
The DVD of Nick Kroll’s stand-up comedy special, Thank You Very Cool hits stores this week. Not only will we be treated to the full special but the DVD will have some bonus clips from the special. And I don’t know about you but 20 bonus clips of Bobby Bottleservice and Fabrice Fabrice is just what we need.
Kroll is a busy man, not only is The League set to return in a few weeks for a third season run on FX but Kroll recently inked a sketch comedy show with Comedy Central
We caught up with Kroll for an interview in the beginning of the year as the premiere of Thank You Very Cool was imminent. We asked him about both the DVD and plans for a sketch comedy show he alluded to both happening.
Here’s a DVD-only bonus clip from the special that features Kroll as El Chupacabra, the Mexican DJ as he drops love for sponsors.
The DVD of Thank You Very Cool is in stores today. Go on out and pick that thing up. Read More
As this Sunday marks ten years since the 9/11 attacks, many will take a moment to reflect on a time that changed America, and surely, New York City.
After the collapse of the Two Towers, a time of emotional uncertainty arose. NY-based actress and filmmaker, Jodi Lennon, decided to take out a video camera. She then followed a day in the life of comedian, wit, and social commentator Marc Maron as he returned to stand-up work while living in New York City. Ten years later, the footage is going to be released as Marc Maron: The Voice of Something, a short documentary, shot/directed by Lennon and edited by Nick Mougis (Human Giant, Ugly Americans, Funny or Die Presents).

Jim Gaffigan just recently welcomed his 4th child into his family. He made an appearance on Late Show with Jimmy Fallon last night to talk about what it’s like having a new baby in the household, “imagine you’re drowning, then someone hands you a baby.” Well, it’s looking like fatherhood hasn’t dulled any of Gaffigan’s edges.
Gaffigan then got serious and jumped into the charity he’s working for headed up by Snickers candy bars to help Feed America. So to recap, buy candy, feed people. This charity couldn’t be more up Jim Gaffigan’s alley if it were called “Jim Gaffigan likes candy bars while doing charitable work.” Buy a candy bar, visit www.snickers.com and enter your code and Snickers will feed people.
And its about time we have some actual clips from season 7 of It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia and as Danny Devito mentioned they managed to hit a new low…just like we like to see our Sunny cast.
There’s probably no way to better prep yourself for the new season than to just watch the gang sink in video form.
The new season begins on Thursday, September 15th on FX.
