Jerry Seinfeld Got Coffee With Trevor Noah and Told Him He’s Going to Do ‘Just Fine’

2 July 2015 8:33 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

For this week's installment of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, Jerry Seinfeld had a play date with Trevor Noah. The young, new Daily Show host bounced all over the place, talking about his rise to stardom, what comedy was like in South Africa (including incidents involving heckling and blatant racism), how he first learned the power of humor, why Jon Stewart left at the perfect time, and how he manages his insane schedule, among many, many other topics. Of all the gems in here, though, one of the best moments came from inside the coffee shop, when Seinfeld looked at Noah and said: "You know what? You're gonna do just fine. You are a purebred ... you're comedic heritage is very purebred." Noah was all smiles and laughs and took all of the other Seinfeld-isms (including the host's sage definition of pain) with no protest. The only unfortunate part about »

2 July 2015 3:40 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Trevor Noah has spoken out for the first time about taking over Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” from exiting host Jon Stewart. In a new episode of Crackle’s “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,” Noah told host Jerry Seinfeld how he found out he got the coveted job, and he explained how he discovered the power of comedy — when his grandfather told a joke to a police officer, allowing the young Noah to witness a white man and black man laughing together for the first time in his native South Africa. But the delicate political climate during his formative years meant. »

Park Bench: Watch Steve Buscemi Get Robbed by Mark Boone Junior

1 July 2015 10:30 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

In case you didn't know, Steve Buscemi (Boardwalk Empire) has been starring in an Emmy-nominated AOL (!) web series where he interviews other celebrities on a park bench, called (yep) Park Bench. Like Jerry Seinfeld's Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, Buscemi talks to his friends about New York, along with everything else. And speaking of comedians and New York, this first clip from a bonus episode of the show below feels very reminiscent of Louie, as it's shot like a silent film (where Buscemi is getting casually robbed by Mark Boone Junior), but with a twist at the end: [complextv contentid="d0cnB5dTo4vyk1hNaV5WQFuz0R3wz9_Q" sitename="collider" playerid="26aa5f02d93f4c05a4546f6d5ecb59b7" adsetid="67a3ff9d3a842ae818bb9de1badc5b0" width="600" height="360" keywords=""] - In this second clip from this week's other new episode, Buscemi talks about his time with Boone, David Johansen talks about New York Dolls, and the Main Squeeze Orchestra mixes it up with Buster Poindexter. You can check out the full clip here: [complextv contentid="lrb3B5dTrT9RKopRw7kb1RboTtkZlpg1" sitename="collider" playerid="26aa5f02d93f4c05a4546f6d5ecb59b7" adsetid="67a3ff9d3a842ae818bb9de1badc5b0" width="600" height="360" keywords=""] - Here's a little more about the show, »

Jim Carrey Blasts California Governor Over Vaccination Bill: ‘This Corporate Fascist Must Be Stopped’

30 June 2015 10:33 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Jim Carrey did not hold back his anger over vaccinations on Tuesday when he unleashed his wrath on Twitter. “California Gov says yes to poisoning more children with mercury and aluminum in manditory vaccines. This corporate fascist must be stopped,” the “Dumb and Dumber” actor wrote. Carrey was referring to the controversial law that was passed earlier in the day by Gov. Jerry Brown eliminating the state’s previous exemptions from vaccinations for personal or religious beliefs. The new ruling requires mandatory vaccinations for nearly every school child in the state.

A Brief History of Seinfeld’s Girlfriends, Told by the Women Themselves

27 June 2015 1:30 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Throughout its almost-decade-long, 167-episode run, Seinfeld gave us myriad moments of pure joy and utter hilarity, many of which were at the expense of Jerry Seinfeld’s dignity. (Seinfeld the character, that is.) Now that the entire series is available on Hulu, Seinfeld (the human) has been reflecting on the legacy and history of the show, including a memorable appearance at this year’s Vulture Fest. But what about the women? Seinfeld’s failed flings and romances, particularly the inimitable Elaine, were among the show’s finest qualities.Now the folks at GQ have compiled an abridged oral history of (character) Seinfeld’s girlfriends. The actresses, including Jennifer Coolidge, Anna Gunn, Janeane Garofalo, Lauren Graham, and Teri Hatcher (though not Julia Louis-Dreyfus), share their memories: how they came to be on the show, their wardrobe dilemmas, the intimidation of lifelong curmudgeon Larry David, and the magnanimity of appearing on the best show about nothing ever. »

Listen: Over 2 Hours Of Interviews With Judd Apatow, Plus Over 25 New 'Trainwreck' Photos

26 June 2015 1:10 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

In case you were unaware, writer/director Judd Apatow was a comedy-obsessed teenager who somehow finagled his way into interviewing some of comedy’s greatest stand-ups. Back then, comedy culture wasn’t what it was today, so it was easy for a 15-year-old Apatow to score interviews with folks like Jerry SeinfeldMartin Short, and other comedians of that stature in the 1980s. "Back then I was alone and I had a little confidence about it because I felt like: 'This is my thing. This is the only thing that only I know about,'" he told NPR recently. Apatow has turned those early conversations, plus more recent talks with peers like Louis C.K., Chris Rock, and Lena Dunham into a new book called “Sick In The Head.” Read More: Review: Judd Apatow's 'Trainwreck' With Amy Schumer, Bill Hader, Tilda Swinton, LeBron James, And More With the book on shelves now, »

25 June 2015 | The Daily BLAM! | See recent The Daily BLAM! news »

To promote the new streaming availability of Seinfeld, Hulu has created an interactive pop-up exhibit of Jerry Seinfeld's iconic apartment in New York City that is free to for fans to explore.

Step Inside Hulu's 'Seinfeld' Apartment in New York

25 June 2015 5:30 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Get out! Every single Seinfeld episode is now streaming on Hulu, so, to celebrate, the streaming service rebuilt the apartment that Jerry Seinfeld (the character) lived in on the show. Rolling Stone visited the apartment and museum, which prominently displayed the magazine's Seinfeld cover stories, to see if the installation was indeed real and spectacular.

From a wide selection of cereals in the kitchen to the hallway with Kramer's reverse peephole, the prefab domicile – which is located on 14th Street near the Highline in New York City – eerily conjures the spirit of the show. »

How Jerry Seinfeld Changed Modern Comedy with Seinfeld

24 June 2015 10:30 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The most-watched stand-up comedian ever is not Eddie Murphy, Steve Martin, Chris Rock, Bill Cosby, or Kevin Hart. It's not George Carlin, Richard Pryor, Sarah Silverman, Louis C.K., Aziz Ansari, Larry the Cable Guy, Dane Cook, Amy Schumer, or Woody Allen. It's Jerry Seinfeld: No, not Jerry Seinfeld the stand-up comedian who created Seinfeld, but Jerry Seinfeld, the fictional comedian on it. As the lead character on the most popular show on television, that comedian altered comedy by changing the relationship fans had with comedians, and what they expected from them. Seinfeld lands on Hulu today, when interest in stand-up and comedy is at all-time high — we are currently at the peak of a Second Comedy Boom, one that Jerry Seinfeld helped define and foster with Seinfeld and his documentary Comedian. “Millennials have a deeper connection to comedy than previous generations,” Chanon Cook, Comedy Central’s head of research, »

‘Seinfeld’ Arrives For Hulu’s Paying Subscribers

24 June 2015 8:35 AM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Nearly two months after it trotted out Jerry Seinfeld during its 2015 Newfronts presentation, Hulu has premiered all 180 episodes of Seinfeld. The 90s sitcom, widely regarded as one of the best TV shows of all time, is available to Hulu’s paying subscribers.

In previous press releases related to Seinfeld, Hulu didn’t say whether the show would be available for free or restricted to viewers who subscribe to the service known until recently as Hulu Plus. While non-subscribers may be irked at the decision to place Seinfeld behind a paywall, Hulu’s choice shouldn’t come as a surprise. After all, the streaming service reportedly paid somewhere in the vicinity of $180 million to acquire the streaming rights to the cherished sitcom (and spent additional funds marketing it with an interactive replica of its set). It has to make a return on its investment somehow.

Still, Hulu was likely quiet about »

'Ted 2' Star Jessica Barth Talks Film's Boundary-Pushing Jokes & Tami-Lynn's Tight Wedding Dress!

23 June 2015 3:30 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

One scene of "Ted 2" finds the foul-mouthed furball arguing with Mark Wahlberg over who should manually pleasure Tom Brady in his sleep, so they can use his uh ... stuff ... to inseminate the teddy's wife. Yep, the bawdy bear is back in the sequel to the 2012 hit, with a film that will shock, surprise and, hopefully, leave the audience in stitches. But, were any of the film's jokes cause for concern for the stars on set? Jessica Barth, who plays Ted's #1 girl Tami-Lynn, opened up about making the Seth MacFarlane flick with toofab's Brian Particelli -- addressing everything from pushing the lines of good taste to that Boston accent.  "I tend to trust Seth creatively with anything, so I know going into it,­ just like anybody knows going into a Seth MacFarlane film, you know it's going to be random humor, pushing the envelope," she says of the questionably offensive material. »

As the wheel generates both a celebrity and a topic, MacFarlane was first tasked with Neeson and Time Warner Cable, effectively bringing everyone's worst nightmares of the communications conglomerate to life: "If you'd like to purchase these channels, I'll come and install your cable, and that'll be the end of it," MacFarlane growled.
