‘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. »

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, »

Comedy Central taped its Roast of Justin Bieber last night at Sony Studios in Culver City, Calif. featuring roastmaster Kevin Hart, and a lineup of roasters that included Ludacris, Shaquille O'Neal, Pete Davidson, Natasha Leggero, Jeff Ross, Chris D'Elia, Will Ferrell, Snoop Dogg, and, for some reason, Martha Stewart.

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.

The 21 Best Jokes from the Roast of Justin Bieber

14 March 2015 9:55 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

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? »

Bobcat Goldthwait Does a Lot with a Little at "Willow Creek"

13 February 2015 11:43 AM, PST | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

If you know who Bobcat Goldthwait is, chances are you’re keenly aware that comedy tends to have a strong pull on basically everything he’s ever done. His feature film career includes dark comedies like Shakes the Clown, World’s Greatest Dad, and God Bless America, and between those ventures he’s a driving force behind stand-up comedy specials or series for well-known jokers like Patton Oswalt, Demetri Martin, Marc Maron, and even Dave Chappelle back when he had his own show. With that strong trend of comedy, Goldthwait’s sudden venture into the lands of horror with Willow Creek, a film about sasquatches in the Pacific Northwest, will catch any fan off-guard. It’s easy to find the traces of Goldthwait’s sense of humor amidst the horror, but it’s just also quite clear that Goldthwait has a firm grasp of what creates and fuels the undercurrent »

‘Nightly Show’ Gives Comedy Central Jolt of Energy Post-Colbert

29 January 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The upside-down map of the world and backwards-running clocks on the set on Larry Wilmore’s new “Nightly Show” aren’t the only things askew at Comedy Central. But on Wilmore’s program, that’s intentional.

“Nightly Show” is the noisiest in a series of recent launches on the Viacom-owned network — programs that send ripples across the popular culture. Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel and even Jon Stewart probably could not make the sorts of pointed asides about racial inequity, sexual politics and cultural oddities that Wilmore, a fiftysomething African-American man, can. During a recent taping, an opening line about the sexual-assault controversy raging around Bill Cosby — “The question will be, ‘Did he do it?’ The answer will be, ‘Yes’ ” — treads dangerous ground, but the crowd reacts so well that Wilmore cracks up and has to reshoot the segment’s start.

“This show is a little dangerous sometimes,” Wilmore confides »

Director Rusty Cundieff Talks to Sergio About Why His New Feature ‘White Water’ Is Not Your Typical Civil Rights Movie

19 January 2015 8:50 AM, PST | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

Back in 1993 writer and director Rusty Cundieff burst upon the scene with his hysterical film satirizing hip-hop, Fear of a Black Hat, which has now achieved cult status and he followed up two years later with equally popular urban horror film spoof Tales from the Hood.
