Enda: The Nightmare Scenario in Which GOPers Push a Bad Bill That Gay Groups Dropped

Here’s the new teaser for Gotham, which features a lot of familiar characters.

Yesterday it was “Word Crimes,” and here’s Weird Al enlisting Aisha Tyler, Margaret Cho, Eric Stonestreet, Kristen Schaal and Jack Black in “Tacky.” Personally, I don’t find any of these examples tacky.

Here’s a giant hellmouth in Siberia.

Shia Labeouf caused quite a stir when he was escorted out of an evening performance of “Cabaret” on Broadway on Thursday night. According to the NYPD, who later charged the “Transformers” actor with criminal trespass and disorderly conduct, Labeouf was being disruptive during the performance, smoking and appeared to be intoxicated. Hollywood stars have taken to Twitter, as they are wont to do, to comment on the situation. Comedians like Billy Eichner and Lena Dunham, as well as “Cabaret” star Alan Cumming himself, have all weighed in with thoughts ranging from funny to concerned.

27 June 2014 5:25 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Needless to say, Shia Labeouf didn't catch the midnight showing of Transformers: Age of Extinction. Instead, the 28-year-old Fury actor spent the night in jail after he was arrested and charged with criminal trespass, harassment and disorderly conduct earlier that evening. While seeing Broadway's Cabaret, he became disorderly during the show's first act. During intermission, Labeouf was escorted out of Studio 54. The troubled yet talented star was reportedly in tears after he was handcuffed outside the venue. Labeouf's rep has yet to comment on the star's arrest. In the meantime, several stars—including Lena Dunham, Billy Eichner and Ana Gasteyer—seized the opportunity to make fun of »

11 June 2014 4:58 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Continuing its push into the scripted comedy space, USA Network has given a 13-episode second season order to exec producers Denis Leary and Bob Fisher’s “Sirens.”

The half-hour laugher is based on a U.K. series (which, in turn, takes its material from a book) and stars Michael Mosley, Kevin Daniels, Kevin Bigley, Jessica McNamee and Josh Segarra and centers on Chicago EMTs who are aces at their jobs, but fail at their personal lives.

“’Sirens’ resonated with a broad fan base, and we are excited to grow this new audience further, as season two promises a lot more laughs and irreverent humor,” said USA Network prexy Chris McCumber. “We’re pleased to continue our partnership with Denis Leary and Bob Fisher, whose unique brand of witty, off-kilter and laugh-out-loud writing is brought to life by the immensely talented cast.”

Sirens” is produced by Fox Television Studios and Apostle, »

22 May 2014 4:24 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »


Vulture breaks down the secrets of how Catfish: The TV Show is put together, making clear that the catfishes usually get cast first, how much of the show is planned in advance as well as how much Nev and Max know in advance. It doesn’t predict when Max and Nev finally get together, however,

James Wolk talked with GQ and addressed where he thought Bob‘s mind was during last week’s marriage proposal, “I think he really has a love for Joan and for her family. I think he really does care for her. And as you see throughout the show, he’s always thinking about trying to advance himself. So I believe that he feels that having a wife and having a family, and being a picture perfect American man in the 1960s, will help him in his career. And he also thinks it would be »

Watch Drew Barrymore and Billy Eichner Play ‘Would Drew Barrymore Like That?’

20 May 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

There are the things Drew Barrymore likes (a garden, keeping in touch, Rosh Hashanah), the things Drew Barrymore doesn't like (hearing about your dreams, milk chocolate, hooking up a printer), things that Billy Eichner says that Drew Barrymore would like (a calendar: "She has one in her phone"), and things that Billy Eichner says that Drew Barrymore would not like (stand-up comedy: "It makes her nervous"). Turns out Billy Eichner knows Drew Barrymore better than Drew Barrymore knows herself. »

Vulture Festival Video: Comedy Night Featuring Broad City, Billy Eichner, Mike Birbiglia, and More

19 May 2014 12:45 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

This month’s first-ever Vulture Festival — hosted by Mike Birbiglia and featuring sets by Billy on the Street’s Billy Eichner and Broad City’s Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer, among others — ended on a high note, with an emphasis on high (am I right, Broad City fans?). Held at the Bell House in Brooklyn last weekend, Vulture brought together some of our favorite comedy stars to perform and answer questions. The theme of the night was “My First Time,” which the comedians were free to interpret however they liked. The aforementioned stars of Broad City interviewed each other about the first time they smoked weed, former Totally Biased host W. Kamau Bell recalled the first (and only) time he appeared on The View, Mike Birbiglia recounted the horrifying story of his first time doing a stand-up set ... and the list goes on.

Would You Survive a Ride on the Mechanical Bullock?

14 May 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Billy Eichner has put Rachel Dratch through hell: First he forced her on season one of "Billy on the Street" to name 20 white celebrities (She couldn't do it) and last year he forced her to conquer the Julia Roberts-based obstacle course called the Julia Robstacle course (She passed, but barely). Now the devastation continues: She must ride the Mechanical Bullock. It's just a normal mechanical bull. But Billy forces Rachel to answer questions about Sandra Bullock as she rides. It is a fate worse than death, especially because the bull's "speed" is not on "cruise control." Ohhhh, 1997. Thanks for it all.  »

A dozen events, one concert, tons of pictures. At this past weekend's first annual Vulture Festival, the editors and writers of this site took over New York City's Milk Studios for two days of pop-culture-themed events. The following things happened: Erykah Badu DJ'd the opening night party ("I just come up with these songs randomly. Whatever I feel. It's therapy, it's fun.") before doing an a cappella version of her song "Soldiers." A pre-elevator-news Solange opened our Saturday night concert, and M.I.A. closed it out by inviting several dozen fans onstage to do "Paper Planes" with her. Mike Birbiglia, Billy Eichner, the ladies of Broad City, and W. Kamau Bell brought Brooklyn's Bell House down with their comedy night set.

9 May 2014 9:45 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

As we announced earlier this week, USA has ordered a pilot of a show titled Difficult People, co-created by and co-starring Billy Eichner and Vulture's own Julie Klausner. (It's also produced by Amy ... Poehler. Poehler? Is that how you spell it?) According to us, "the show follows the duo who play New York comedians who hate everyone but each other." We're happy for them and asked the pair to tell us a few short things about their pilot. They did.1. We play bitter, struggling outliers in the NYC comedy world who can't get a break while our peers move on to fame and fortune. And everybody drives us crazy. The only people we don't talk shit about are each other. And Margo Martindale, who is having a great year, And It's Only May!!!!! 2. When we pitched it, at one point we said: "Think of Will and Grace, if »
