Ron White’s “Tater Salad” story has become something of a comedy legend and if you know him at all, chances are it’s for that story about a drunken response from the past coming back to haunt Ron in the funniest way. It was storytelling comedy like that which made him a comic force to be reckoned with and he has since ridden that hot streak to a number of albums and comedy specials, which has led to his receiving a Uso tour. On that tour he took a bunch of his comedy friends, some of whom are Uso tour veterans themselves, and for one night, their show was broadcast on TV in the form of Ron White’s Comedy Salute to the Troops. It may have a few good laughs but when we get a subpar performance from White and only 7-minute routines from the likes of Lewis Black and Kathleen Madigan, »

There are very few female comedians in the world today but funny lady Kathleen Madigan has proven herself to be one of the best and her new stand-up act Kathleen Madigan: Gone Madigan has just been released on Blu-ray.
Madigan is honest and to the point. Although she is a woman, she displays serious proof of having “balls.” Like many great comedians, she is fearless and doesn’t give a crap who she offends. Shot at the Gramercy Theater in New York City, this 64-minute stand-up set is truly, truly funny. The topics Madigan discusses are current and her comedic timing is impeccable.
Veteran comedian and perpetually angry Lewis Black is the opening act for Madigan, giving her a very sweet introduction. We are then taken on a journey into Madigan’s mad world. She starts things off by talking about a New Year’s resolution she hopes to »

DVD Playhouse: January 2011
Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps (20th Century Fox) Sequel to the seminal 1980s film catches up with a weathered, but still determined Gordon Gekko (Michael Douglas, who seems to savor every syllable of Allan Loeb and Stephen Schiff’s screenplay) just out of jail and back on the comeback trail. In attempting to repair his relationship with his estranged daughter (Carey Mulligan), Gekko forges a reluctant alliance with her fiancé (Shia Labeouf), himself an ambitious young turk who finds himself seduced by Gekko’s silver tongue and promise of riches. Lifeless film is further evidence of director Oliver Stone’s decline. Once America’s most exciting filmmaker, Stone hasn’t delivered a film with any teeth since 1995’s Nixon. Labeouf and Mulligan generate no sparks on-screen, and the story feels forced from the protracted opening to the final, Disney-esque denouement. Only a brief cameo by Charlie Sheen, »
