Watch Actors, Comedians Do Their Best Dog Impressions

12 May 2015 11:22 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

For better or worse, a lot of Hollywood movies and TV shows have required their personnel to bark like dogs. YouTuber Wiseguy Pictures rounded up some of the best of these moments from Dogtooth, Little Rascals, and Twin Peaks, among others. Why? More like, why not? Here's a nifty supercut of people ranging from Sandra Bullock to Dave Chappelle acting like canines. If you find this unsettling, just take it as a mental preview for the lunacy that you'll probably see Thursday at Mad Max. »

The Misunderstood Genius of Amy Schumer

10 May 2015 11:13 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In what was probably the finest work of her young career, Amy Schumer devoted the latest episode of her Comedy Central series to just one sketch that asked a provocative question: Is she attractive enough to have her own TV show?

The 33-year-old brought to life the absurdity of even deliberating such a matter in the form of a “12 Angry Men” spoof, complete with accomplished thespians including Paul Giamatti, Jeff Goldblum and Vincent Kartheiser delivering impassioned monologues about whether they had enough “reasonable chub” to deem her “bangable.”

But let’s pretend the assembled jurists had turned their attention to a different assessment of Schumer: Rather than rate her looks, should she be ranked among the best comedians working today?

It’s probably wise to resist the sexist impulse to compare Schumer strictly to other female comics; seeding her in a ranking of her peers of either gender feels wrong, »

Dave Chappelle -- Crowd Demands Refunds for Slurry, Half Baked Show

25 April 2015 1:00 AM, PDT | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

According to multiple people in the crowd during Thursday night's 9:30 show at the Fillmore ... a seemingly wasted Chappelle took the stage an hour late (mostly due to the crowd still being seated), and told very few jokes. Instead, he sat quietly smoking, rambling, and slurring his speech. »

‘Chappelle’s Show: The Series Collection’ DVD Review

23 April 2015 5:28 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

When YouTube was created I’m sure the plan wasn’t for people to watch bite sized amounts of comedy picking up the best skits from television shows from all over the world, but this is one way that I tend to watch the funniest comedians, and it was the first time I’ve really seen any of Dave Chappelle’s work.  With the release of Chappelle’s Show: The Series Collection this week, this is my chance to see his comedy as it was meant to be seen on television.

One thing that is obvious from the first season of the show is that Chappelle’s Show: The Series Collection coming from Comedy Central was a move from a more liberal HBO to a stricter form of television.  Though slightly more tamer of a channel this isn’t to say that Chappelle would not push the limits of what he could get away with. »

The Game of Thrones cast gathered in San Francisco on Monday for the season five premiere, huddling together to pose for adorable pictures at the afterparty.

It's official: Justin Bieber has been roasted. After weeks of buildup, stars gathered in La to tease pop music's naughty singer on Saturday. And judging from the pictures, it's everything you could have dreamed of. Naturally, Snoop Dogg sat with Martha Stewart, Will Ferrell transformed into Ron Burgundy, and Kevin Hart and Shaquille O'Neal nearly fell out of their seats. As for famous faces in the audience, Dave Chappelle flipped off the camera, as Chrissy Teigen and John Legend laughed their butts off. The roasters did not hold back on delivering zingers about stars in the audience. Things may have been awkward for sisters Kendall Jenner and Kourtney Kardashian, as a few Bruce Jenner jokes were thrown into the mix. At one point, Kevin Hart tried to get laughs by addressing the old rumors about Justin dating Kendall. "I was like, what the f*ck?! I thought if you were with a Jenner, »

News: Justin Bieber Shamelessly Begs Seth Rogen To Join Comedy Central Roast

With all of 21-year-old Justin's antics and mishaps, the roasters had more fodder for this roast than maybe ever. And we knew they wouldn't go easy on him, but damn!

Here are all the biggest moments you can look forward to on the telecast, as well as some moments you probably definitely can't.

1. Kevin Hart pulled no punches.

"Tonight, we are gonna do what [Justin's] parents and the legal system should have done a long time ago, said Kevin. "Give this boy an ass-whuppin' he deserves."

The 21 Best Jokes from the Roast of Justin Bieber

Host Kevin Hart said it best in the first few minutes of Comedy Central's Justin Bieber Roast: "Tonight we are gonna do what parents and the legal system should have done a long time - give the boy an ass-whuppin' he deserves." And with that, the shellacking of the 21-year-old pop star began, starting with a video montage that included all of Bieber's embarrassing legal woes and continuing with a tidal wave of cracks about the singer's pre-pubescent fanbase, his goofy songs and all those appearances on Ellen. And that was just when Ludacris, comedian Natasha Legerro and Shaquille O'Neal »

Shows You Should Be Watching: The Katering Show

10 March 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

In an infamous 2007 Vanity Fair article, Christopher Hitchens claimed that women, for the most part, aren’t funny. He argued that men need to make women laugh in order to impress them and women, being inherently attractive to men, don’t have the same impulse. Accordingly, he wrote, they haven’t developed their comedy skills to the same extent, with the exception of women he deemed to be less attractive than the unfunny ones. As evidence of his point, he cited the heavily male-skewed comedy world: there are more male comics, he said, so clearly men are the funnier gender.

While there are many flaws with his argument, his evidence very well may be the biggest one. Aside from the barriers preventing women from achieving in show business which have nothing to do with their abilities, the preponderance of men in comedy has led to many male comic tropes becoming passé. »

The great Irish famine sitcom – a comedy hot potato?

24 February 2015 7:04 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Some people are angry that Channel 4 is developing Hungry, a comedy set in one of Ireland’s darkest times. But don’t judge a script before it’s written

The idea dies hard that comedy automatically trivialises – or disrespects – whatever it touches. There’s a hoohah right now about a sitcom script Channel 4 is developing, called Hungry, about the 19th-century Irish famine. Chortle records a recent dust-up on the subject at the London Irish comedy festival, at which one protestor railed: “Why not make comedy about Negro slavery? Why not make comedies about the Holocaust?” Why not, indeed? Dave Chappelle did so in the former case, Roberto Benigni in the latter – and in neither instance was the gravity of the original subjugation or slaughter diminished one jot.

What’s with the assumption that comedy is inherently disrespectful? Would the same protestors complain if Hollywood announced a historical drama about the famine? »
