Janet Jackson was also dancing in the aisles, but for a very different reason -- she spent a night off from her State of the World Tour by taking in a performance of Magic Mike Live at Las Vegas’ Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on Oct. 13.

Dave Chappelle Interview From Years Ago Shows his Accuracy on Weinstein Drama Today

18 October 2017 8:00 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

There are no weak people in Hollywood. I might have to disagree with Chappelle on this one but his comments still did ring pretty true when he was talking about what might be going on in Hollywood. While there are all types in Hollywood I believe the truth is that trying to out some of them for their behavior might not be conducive to a long and healthy life. People are made to do things in Hollywood against their will even if they end up later saying it was their idea. Position, influence, power, all of these are methods that

Following in the footsteps of fellow comedians like Dave Chappelle and Aziz Ansari, Nanjiani turned his monologue into a stand-up routine, remarking on the rise of Islamophobia (“It never went away, but it’s really having a moment right now”) and misguided racism.

Dave Chappelle, Ed Sheeran’s Rowdy Cover of Radiohead’s ‘Creep’

7 October 2017 4:30 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

You know anytime Dave Chappelle is around things are going to get a little loud and a little obnoxious pretty quick. It’s not always a bad thing really since Chappelle has proven that when he’s not high and completely out of his mind he’s still pretty funny. Still, when he pairs up with Ed Sheeran for something like a rendition of Radiohead’s song Creep things might kick off a bit in a way that you didn’t expect. If you’ve heard the song then you know it’s fairly low key and doesn’t get too nuts, but if you add in Chappelle

Robin Williams Accused of Stealing Jokes in New Book

5 October 2017 2:52 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The late Robin Williams has been accused of stealing jokes back in the early days of his comedic career in a new comedy tell-all book written by the legendary Budd Friedman. Friedman founded the New York and Los Angeles Improv Comedy Clubs and has seen a lot of things in his 85 years. In addition to ratting out Robin Williams, Friedman devotes an entire chapter to the iconic and polarizing comedian, Andy Kaufman, and dishes on managing Bette Midler as well as witnessing Johnny Carson getting wasted and making out with an 18-year old girl in the backseat of a car.

Many comedians have been accused of joke stealing, but as it turns out, Robin Williams was reportedly notorious for it back when he was for starting out. The Hollywood Reporter spoke to Budd Friedman about his book and the author revealed that Richard Lewis and Robert Wuhl both accuse Williams »

Idris Elba Says Taylor Swift and Kanye West's Feud Made Co-Hosting the 2016 Met Gala 'A Bit Awkward'

4 October 2017 11:37 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Idris Elba had a blast co-hosting the 2016 Met Gala! There was just one thing though...

The Luther star opened up about the annual fashion event in an interview with The New York Times, where he admitted that Taylor Swift and Kanye West's feud -- which found new life that year after West's infamous "Famous" lyrics -- made things "a little awkward."

"It was great [co-hosting]. I felt really famous that day," the 45-year-old actor explained. "It was a bit awkward because Taylor Swift and I had to present an award. We were walking through the crowd and obviously, there was a little beef between Taylor and Kanye. I didn’t know any of this. But I was there! And I was, like, 'Oh, this is awks.'"

Eek. Sounds awks, indeed!

10 Actors to Watch: Daniel Kaluuya Goes From ‘Get Out’ to ‘Black Panther’

4 October 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Daniel Kaluuya is one of Variety‘s 10 Actors to Watch for 2017. For the full list, click here.

British actor Kaluuya says he knew almost instantly after reading “Get Out” that Jordan Peele’s social commentary masked as a horror film would “shake things up.”

“In the original ending, basically he kills everybody,” Kaluuya says of his lead character, Chris, whose girlfriend (Allison Williams) has ulterior motives when she takes him to meet her family. “I knew then that this is going to be a thing.”

Kaluuya, whose credits also include TV’s “Black Mirror” and “Skins,” says he knew Peele’s work with Keegan-Michael Key in Comedy Central’s “Key & Peele” and that he has a habit of creating works  that “really resonate with the public consciousness.” He remembers returning to London after “Get Out” was released and walking down Warren Street while on the phone when a black woman suddenly “looked at me, hugged »

26 September 2017 2:25 PM, PDT | | See recent The AV Club news »

Even though Def Comedy Jam is responsible for launching the careers of some of the biggest names in comedy, it hardly ever gets the respect it deserves. Even though it’s a common link between people like Dave Chappelle, Martin Lawrence, Bernie Mac and Kevin Hart, the comedy world doesn’t give it the same adoration as…

Radiohead fans Dave Chappelle and Ed Sheeran sang “Creep” together

Dave Chappelle is apparently a big Radiohead fan, always ready to hit karaoke bars, birthday fetes, and Saturday Night Live afterparties with his rendition of “Creep.” And should he ever want some back-up vocals, he could probably pluck just about anyone out of the audience, restaurant, etc. But it turns out his duet…

“All comedy roads today, lead to Def Comedy Jam.” 

Dave Chappelle, Steve Harvey, Martin Lawrence, D.L. Hughley and more of comedy’s heavy hitters reunited for a special night of laughs for Def Comedy Jam 25, a new special which began streaming on Netflix on Tuesday.

The comedy celebration was filmed at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California, on Sept. 9, and pays tribute to the comedians behind a show “responsible for more stolen cable than any other television,” as Chappelle joked. 

Chappelle, Harvey, Sheryl Underwood and Cedric the Entertainer kick off the 80-minute special playing as a comedy collision of self-deprecation and social topics like racism and police brutality, a sprinkle of politics (President Donald Trump comes up more than once) and tons of laughs, with appearances from Tracy Morgan, Katt Williams, Craig Robinson, Bill Bellamy, Mike Epps, Tiffany Haddish and many more.
