1 hour ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Look at the current landscape of American comedy in TV and film, and you will see an institution that has been shaped, molded and influenced by one show more than any other, for 39 years.

20th Century Fox

It’s been a bit of a crazy week in the movie industry, and we’ve got a whole host of things to discuss in regards to the biggest movie and TV news that dominated our RSS feeds over the last seven days. Tinseltown is a busy place, and now that we’re getting farther into 2014 we’re getting more and more updates about what movies will be dominating our cinemas for the foreseeable future, and which shows we’ll likely be tuning into week after week.

We’ve got a few new comic book adaptations on the way that will grace both the small screen and the silver screen; and we heard updates about whether or not Spider-Man could ever fight alongside the Avengers, or if Fox wants the Fantastic Four showing up alongside the X-Men.

Amy Poehler Promises 'Big Things Happen' in Season Six Finale of 'Parks and Recreation'

16 hours ago | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

While "Parks and Recreation" may not live and die on its twists and turns (thank God), the show has always employed cliffhangers in its season finales. From Leslie's impending impeachment last season to the government being shut down at the end of season two, there have been countless game-changing -- but realistic -- moments to cap off each season. The season six finale may hold something even bigger. "The last minute or so of our season finale, the last moments, are really important and big things happen that kind of show you where we’re going and where a lot of the characters are going," Amy Poehler said. "So I would encourage everybody to watch until the very end." The finale has been set up to showcase Pawnee's Unity Concert, an effort by Leslie Knope and the parks department to bring the citizens together after the rival towns of Pawnee and Eagleton merged mid-season. »

“It was also really fun to tell the real-life Amy Poehler that we’re doing a storyline where she was pregnant with triplets, »

Comedy Chops Can Boost Your Acting Career

18 hours ago | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

It takes a strong sense of comedic license to reference the labia minora, turn it into a Jewish joke, and come out unscathed. But raunch and riffing off audience members comes with the improv territory at Upright Citizens Brigade and beyond. One of the perks of taking that special kind of artistic liberty is saying whatever you want onstage, to whomever you want, for laughs. Comedy can be a way to speak your mind, but it can also be a way to explore yourself as a performer and receive some open, honest feedback. One of Ucb’s many improv shows, “Asssscat 3000”—associated with Amy Poehler, who’s on the rotating bill—takes that explorative, honest license and runs with it, no sweat. But don’t be fooled by the ease with which these improvisers perform; “Asssscat 3000” comes from a lot of work at the Ucb Training Center. “We went through »

18 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

NBC will air a three-hour live special on Sunday, Feb. 15, 2015 , in celebration of the 40th anniversary of “Saturday Night Live.” The air date comes about eight months before the show originally debuted on the Peacock in the fall of 1975.

Past and present cast members, as well as special and musical guests from the show’s run, will appear on the telecast, with the specific lineup of guests to be determined in the coming months.

“This brand, which is still one of the highest-rated comedies on television, was the brainchild of Lorne Michaels, who still presides over the whole enterprise today,” said Robert Greenblatt, chairman of NBC Entertainment, in a statement. “This special is just one of the many ways we plan to celebrate ‘SNL’s historic 40th season next year.”  

The “SNL” anniversary specials often serve as a time capsule of sorts, with major players from the program returning to reprise their old antics. »
