Epix wants to keep its subs laughing as the days get longer. The premium net today announced the lineup for its summer season of Comedy Unbound, featuring new stand-ups by Jim Breuer, Sherri Shepherd and others, which kicks off in June. Then in the fall, Epix will bow The Improv: 50 Years Behind The Brick Wall, an hourlong anniversary special about the venerable comedy clubs that have infiltrated more than two dozen U.S. cities in the past half-century. Expect comments from such punchline-practiced vets as Larry David, Jim Carrey, Judd Apatow, Billy Crystal, Keenen Ivory Wayans and Whitney Cummings. EPs are Improv founder Budd Friedman, Mark Lonow and Spotted Dog Entertainment. The Comedy Unbound specials will air at 10 Pm starting June 7 with Jim Breuer: And Laughter For All. They’ll continue with Sherri Shepherd: It’s My Time To Talk (June 21), Tom Papa: Freaked Out (July 26) and Jim Norton »

If you haven't noticed the upward trajectory of Natasha Leggero, you must not be paying attention. You know, she's that funny girl you've seen on pretty much everything, and is constantly retweeted in your Twitter feed?
Leggero can frequently be seen with her pants off on "Burning Love," and is a regular guest panelist on "Chelsea Lately." Plus, she's now set to guest star in the upcoming "Arrested Development" reboot on Netflix and an episode of NBC's "Community." Not to mention her role in the forthcoming "Drunk History" for Comedy Central.
In between hosting her own Comedy Central special and appearing on shows like "Whitney" and "Are You There, Chelsea?," Leggero takes the time to perform at a music festival or two. On May 10, she'll appear along with Demetri Martin and Jim Breuer at the inaugural Bottle Rock Napa Valley music, food, wine, comedy and beer festival.

Happy 4/20! Indeed, it’s that annual holiday put aside for a celebration of everything related to marijuana, and what better way to celebrate the legally restricted herb than by watching some classic stoner movies?
One of the more niche cinematic genres out there, the stoner film can nevertheless be enjoyed just as much by those who have never – and never intend to – partake in some of the green because the basic idea of most of these films is an extremely appealing one that’s ripe for comedy; heightened reality, and the love of sitting around doing nothing.
So sit back, relax, maybe light up a joint (though for legal reasons we recommend you do this in a country where it’s permissible!) and soak in one of these 10 fantastic stoner movies…
10. Half Baked
Here’s a stoner film that indulges in just about every stoner stereotype known to man, yet is somehow absolutely hilarious, »

Dave Chappelle and Jim Breuer star as buffoonish stoners in the classic - to us, at least - 1998 comedy Half Baked. While trying to get their friend out of jail, the two come up with a variety of schemes, but ultimately they're a little too distracted to get much done. I've listed some of my favorite lines below, but what are yours? "Abba Zaba, you my only friend." - Thurgood "F*ck you, f*ck you, f*ck you, you're cool, and f*ck you, I'm out!" - Scarface "I got some bootie! I got some bootie! It was good too." - Thurgood »
