You may not have heard of the new web series Cop Show, but something tells us that the comedy is going to pick up steam very soon.
Available to stream on the L Studio, it combines the format and deadpan wit of The Office with the laugh out loud absurdity of Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Written by and starring Colin Quinn, the series offers a mockumentary style look at a fictitious police procedural show. Poking fun at the entertainment industry, its appeal lies in its wacky and out of touch characters.
Among the many reasons to watch Cop Show are the constant stream of high profile guest stars that include everyone from Amy Schumer to Jerry Seinfeld, who was recently on hand to support Quinn during the show’s NY premiere at Caroline’s comedy club. The legendary comedian spoke about the shift in TV viewing since his legendary show was on the air, »

NBC aired the three and a half hour 40th Anniversary special for their beloved late night sketch comedy series Saturday Night Live last night, and it was surely an affair to remember, with memorable appearances by comedians who got their start on the show, such as Eddie Murphy, Bill Murray, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.

Current and past “SNL” cast members such as Tina Fey, Chris Rock, Bill Murray, Adam Sandler and Eddie Murphy gathered with beloved past celeb guest hosts that included Justin Timberlake, Kerry Washington, Bradley Cooper, James Franco, Melissa McCarthy and Tom Hanks at New York’s Rockefeller Center before heading into the famous Studio 8H for the three-and-a-half-hour live show.

Whether saving Brad Pitt from marauding women, watching performers lose it if their sketches got cut or seeing technicians try not to crack up on TV, there was never a dull moment working on SNL – but I lived in fear
SNL40 review: imperfect celebration of the past proves why it still matters
Seeing Saturday Night Live turn 40 makes me feel really old. I worked at the show in seasons 24 and 25, when I was 25. I feel old remembering that Tina Fey was the head writer, didn’t appear on camera and wasn’t a celebrity. I feel geezerly recalling that there was only one internet connection in the SNL writing offices; and outright ancient thinking back on how I copied and pasted Xeroxes of newspaper stories for the writers pre-mass use of Google, and made tape-to-tape analogue video copies for the actors because YouTube hadn’t been invented.
But back then I felt young, »

Saturday Night Live's 40th anniversary documentary Live from New York! will open this year's Tribeca Film Festival.
The behind-the-scenes look at the NBC sketch show's beginnings will screen at the New York festival in April.
The show has clocked up more than 800 episodes and has been hosted by A-list stars across four decades, with many more putting in guest appearances.
Co-founder of the Tribeca Film Festival Jane Rosenthal said: "SNL's contribution to the arts and to pop culture has been - and continues to be - groundbreaking, and Live From New York! offers an inside look at the show's inimitable ability to both reflect and impact American news, history and culture."
Robert De Niro, who is also a co-founder of the festival, added: "The selection of Live from New York! to open the 14th Tribeca Film Festival is personally gratifying to me on several levels. Having hosted SNL three times, »
Conceptually speaking, the subject matter of this movie looks like something we may have already seen before, but what sets movies/shows like this apart is the voice. This is quite the cast, too. Bill Hader is already kicking some ass, but it's always good to see Mike Birbiglia, Dave Attell, and Colin Quinn too. And LeBron James is funny! Who knew? I'm pretty excited for this. »

Judd Apatow, whether writing, directing, or both, is someone that, at the very least, lets you know what you’re getting yourself into. If you like The 40-Year-Old Virgin, and Knocked Up, you probably know where you are when This Is 40 hits.
The comedienne, and creator/star of Inside Amy Schumer is one of the funniest people working today, and those who are familiar with her work will know that this is the sort of story she ought to be able to knock out of the park… sort of.
Of course, the film may cause some people difficulty, when it comes to figuring out their expectations, because I love Amy Schumer, but I hate pretty much everything Judd Apatow has had any connection to.
It always makes »

In his fifth feature film as a director, Judd Apatow (The 40-year-old Virgin) again brings a portrait of an unforgettable character, and a portrayal by a breakout new comedy star, together in Trainwreck. Since she was a little girl, it’s been drilled into Amy’s (Schumer) head by her rascal of a dad (Colin Quinn) that monogamy isn’t realistic. Now a magazine writer, Amy lives by that credo—enjoying what she feels is an uninhibited life free from stifling, boring romantic commitment—but in actuality, she’s kind of in a rut. When she finds herself starting to fall for the subject of the new article she’s writing, a charming and successful sports doctor named Aaron Conners (Bill Hader), Amy starts to wonder if other grown-ups, including this guy who really seems to like her, might be on to »

Universal Pictures has unveiled a restricted trailer for its upcoming "Trainwreck" comedy, which stars Amy Schumer ("Inside Amy Schumer"), who also wrote the script. Check out the trailer and the poster below. Plot: Since she was a little girl, it's been drilled into Amy's head by her dad that monogamy isn't realistic. Now a magazine writer, Amy lives by that credo - enjoying what she feels is an uninhibited life free from stifling, boring romantic commitment - but in actuality, she's kind of in a rut.

You have to give it to Judd Apatow. His last film as director, This Is Forty, gave movie critics the world over the chance to make a gag out of it. Statistically, approximately 23% of reviews of that film contained the phrase "this is forty minutes too long".
So what does he call his next film? Trainwreck. It's like he's inviting people to help themselves there. Maybe he'll call his next film 'Two Stars'?
The synopsis for the film gives an outline as to what to expect:
"Since she was a little girl, it’s been drilled into Amy’s (Schumer) head by her rascal of a dad (Colin Quinn) that monogamy isn’t realistic. »

They co-wrote the script together and have added an impressive cast that includes Bill Hader, Colin Quinn, Brie Larson, John Cena, Tilda Swinton and LeBron James. It follows the character Amy (Schumer) who’s always believed, thanks to her Dad, that monogamy isn’t a realistic way to live. She’s living her life free from boring romantic commitment but when she meets sports doctor Aaron (Hader), things start to change in her mind.
But Wait! It’s not done in the usual way as this one has a definite twist on the usual ‘finding yourself/a different life’ genre and from Amy’s perspective, check it out yourself, I like this one and don’t forget to scroll down for the first image: »

Earlier this morning, the first trailer for director Judd Apatow's Trainwreck debuted, starring Amy Schumer as a woman who struggles to stay single on the old advice of her father. While that initial trailer had one great scene with WWE Superstar John Cena, he's really allowed to shine in a new, very raunchy red band trailer that offers up his version of 'dirty talk'.
Amy Schumer wrote the Trainwreck screenplay, loosely based on her own life experiences, following a woman named Amy (Amy Schumer) who will do anything to avoid commitment, until she falls for a doctor, played by Bill Hader. The comedy marks Judd Apatow's returns to the big screen for his first directorial effort since 2012's This Is 40. It also comes packed with plenty of cameos from the likes of NBA star LeBron James, Brie Larson, Colin Quinn, Vanessa Bayer, Tilda Swinton, Mike Birbiglia and Barkhad Abdi. »
Here's the trailer for Amy Schumer's new movie "Trainwreck." She wrote it and stars in it. I cannot effing wait. Let's rank all the memorable players in this flawless trailer. 7. Brie Larson: Ever since "United States of Tara," we've been waiting for the proper Brie Larson showcase. "Short Term 12" wasn't my thing. This will be my thing. #JusticeForBrieLarson 6. Colin Quinn: Inspired casting! I like Colin as a philandering dad who levels with his kids (rather dubiously) about the hardships of romance. He's throwing down some Danny Aiello grit here. Next stop: a cameo as Madonna's disapproving father in a music video about abortion. 5. Vanessa Bayer: Always love V-Bay's "Sound Advice" web series, and I'm glad she gets to employ her kooky version of intelligence and charm here. 4. LeBron James: I interviewed Bill Hader for "The Skeleton Twins" last summer, and he talked about »

Since the release of mid-life crisis drama This Is 40, acclaimed director Judd Apatow has switched gears to focus on producing, dabbling in a variety of projects including Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues and Begin Again, not to mention HBO’s award-winning series, Girls. Now, the filmmaker will step back behind the camera once more for his upcoming all-new comedy Trainwreck, which today revealed its first trailer.
Starring stand-up comedian Amy Schumer – who also helped with script duties – opposite Superbad and Forgetting Sarah Marshall star Bill Hader, the film will orbit around Schumer’s protagonist as a woman who struggles to sustain a relationship with a significant other beyond the clichéd one night stand. But when she is given the opportunity to produce a feature piece on a sports doctor (Hader), she soon finds that her once-concrete attitude about men is beginning to chip away and that monogamy, despite what she has been told, »

The pairing of Judd Apatow with hilarious (and hilariously filthy) stand-up comedian Amy Schumer has us excited for the summer comedy Trainwreck. Mix in the presence of Bill Hader, Vanessa Bayer, Colin Quinn, John Cena and LeBron James, and our anticipation is through the roof. Well, the first trailer just dropped on Schumer.s Twitter feed, and you can get your first look right here: From the looks of this first trailer, Amy Schumer is playing an arrested development adult who was taught at a very young age (by an irresponsible father) that monogamy doesn.t work. By the time she reaches her 30s, she.s bouncing from man to man on one-night stands that don.t lead to much. John Cena plays one of those random hook ups, and I didn.t think about it until I saw it, but yes. He totally does look like Mark Wahlberg, if »
