Lesson of the day: Never wear makeup when interviewing Joel McHale. Learn from our mistakes, people! We chatted with The Soup host and Community star on the red carpet at NBC's upfront presentation in New York City and our stomachs still hurt from laughing. So. Darn. Hard. So what was McHale saying that had us crying off our mascara? Well, it had something to do with new Late Night host Seth Meyers and the word "boner." Oh, and don't worry, Community fans, we were able to stop laughing long enough to get McHale to discuss the sitcom's renewal...and possible movie! Community's Renewal: While NBC canceled many of their comedies, the cult favorite series is returning for a fifth season. »

What's better than The Soup? More Soup! At Monday night's E! Upfront in NYC, The Soup's host and Community funnyman Joel McHale talked with E! News' Kristin Dos Santos about the hit comedy franchise's pop culture investigative spinoff series. "It's called The Soup Investigates, where we will go more in depth on pop culture stories," McHale explains of the spinoff. "Such as, we will follow a rose from it being picked from a field in Bakersfield, all the way to when it's given to an emotionally damaged game-show contestant on The Bachelor." Finally, someone shines a light on the unsung heroes of reality TV! So why did McHale decide it was time to expand The Soup »
These days, our knowledge of celebrities too often originates with paparazzi images and snarky quotes by anonymous "insiders." After a while, it's easy to forget that stars are real people. That's why HuffPost Celebrity decided to launch its all-new #nofilter quick-fire question-and-answer series. Because how well do you know someone until they've shared their guiltiest pleasures?
Joel McHale cracks us up every Wednesday night on the E! network's "The Soup" and then continues to do it on NBC Thursday nights on "Community." But what we didn't realize was how hilarious he was in person -- that is, until HuffPost Celebrity caught up with him on the black-and-white carpet at the E! Upfront event in NYC on April 22, where he revealed his sarcastic secrets.
