Chris Hardwick: King of the Nerds

"Sorry, can you repeat that? I’m playing the new South Park video game. It’s amazing!" The interview has just started, and Chris Hardwick is already apologizing over the phone from his L.A. home. Had almost anyone else mentioned there were gaming in the middle of a conversation, the statement might be considered borderline rude. But come on: This is the man they call "The Nerdist," who's built an empire out of reviewing gadgets, internet binging and hosting conversations with past and present genre icons. It's that passion »

Bradley Cooper's Plan to Save Obamacare: Actor Set Up Obama's Between Two Ferns Chat With Pal Zach Galifianakis

2 April 2014 9:20 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Turns out, President Barack Obama has a loyal—and intelligent—friend in Bradley Cooper. In a new post titled "Behind the Obamacare surprise," Politico reports that the Silver Linings Playbook star played a crucial role in facilitating the Potus' appearance on the mock-interview show Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis, which lead to a massive surge in Obamacare enrollment. With girlfriend Suki Waterhouse by his side, the 39-year-old actor visited the White House on Feb. 11 for a state dinner honoring President François Hollande where he met with Obama's senior adviser Valerie Jarrett to "brainstorm ideas about how to help get the word out on Obamacare," the site »

Watch Adam Scott's 'Step Brothers' character rant against Obamacare

25 March 2014 9:30 PM, PDT | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

Funny or Die's crusade to get as many people signed up for health insurance by March 31 continues. First President Barack Obama appeared on "Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis," now "Parks and Recreation" star Adam Scott has revisited his memorable role as a scumbag from "Step Brothers."

The video includes cameos by Mark Cuban, Jeff Probst and Chris Daughty. What is important though, is the impassioned speech Scott gives as Derek Hough. He doesn't need health insurance. He drinks antifreeze, is riddled with concussions and and finds his multiple experiences being struck by lightning erotic. Who needs healthcare when that's your life?

Of course, none of that helps when he trips and breaks his ankle. He must be wishing for Obamacare now. »

Obama Defends Funny Or Die Appearance, Promotes It On The Radio

23 March 2014 8:20 PM, PDT | | See recent Tubefilter News news »

President Obama’s appearance in early March 2014 on Funny or Die’s Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis accomplished two things. One, it helped push Americans to in statistically significant numbers. And two, it drew the ire of conventionally conservative news programs with critiques of unpresidential behavior. Stephen Colbert has a rather comprehensive clip showcasing the on-air criticisms Potus received from a number of different Fox news reporters, anchors, and hosts after his online video publicity stunt. The critique that resonated most with the press came from Bill O’Reilly, who expressed his opinion that Abraham Lincoln wouldn’t have been part of what he believes to have been a disrespectful shill. Here’s the segment from Colbert Report: O’Reilly’s critique resonated with Obama, too. The President of the United States defended his nontraditional media appearance on the web series during another non traditional media appearance »

Obama Enlists Record-Re-Tweeter Ellen DeGeneres In Obamacare Push: Video

20 March 2014 9:05 AM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Continuing to urge Americans to sign up for Affordable Care Act coverage before the March 31 deadline, President Obama today turned to the woman who’d broken his re-tweet record, Ellen DeGeneres. Obama appeared on her syndicated The Ellen DeGeneres Show via live shot from the White House –  his first appearance on the show since being elected to the White House. It’s been about a week since Obama appeared on the Funny or Die web series Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis to tout the benefits of Obamacare; some members of the media had a field day with that one, but they’re pretty busy now with the missing Malaysia Airlines plane story so you may not see so much hair-tearing about today’s appearance, in which Potus discusses his having eaten carrot sticks with potato chips while Flotus Michelle Obama is in China with their daughters; his Practically Perfect »

Top 5: Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Veronica Mars, SXSW 2014 Coverage, Need For Speed, President Obama Visits Between Two Ferns

15 March 2014 9:31 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Last night I managed to pull myself away from Titanfall long enough to check out Veronica Mars which, surprisingly enough, is playing in a theater within an hour of me. As a fan of the series, the movie hit every note I could have asked for but also confirmed my suspicion that Mars is best suited for the type of long-form storytelling that television permits. Creator/director Rob Thomas does an admirable job of bringing us up to speed on the lives of our favorite Neptune characters against the backdrop of a ten year high school reunion. That said, 107 minutes doesn't leave much time for breathing in between the introduction, mystery set-up, and resolution. I often felt rushed through the process, longing for 20-22 episodes for Veronica to crack the case as opposed to 75 minutes or so. This small gripe aside, Veronica Mars is a movie made for the fans (and, »

President Obama Talks Gap Purchases, Making Zach Galifianakis "Nervous" With His Secret Service

14 March 2014 11:10 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Earlier this week, we couldn't help but smile when we saw pics of President Barack Obama shopping for the ladies in his life at the Gap, and now the Potus is opening up about his recent shopping spree. The father of two phoned into On Air With Ryan Seacrest on Thursday, where he dished on his trip to the popular retailer, as well as his comical appearance on Between Two Ferns With Zach Galifianakis while encouraging young folks to sign up for the Affordable Health Care Act. But before he shared a few fun anecdotes, the president got right down to business and stressed that there are many more Americans who should sign up for the Affordable Care Act, which was signed into law in 2010 with the goal of increasing »

President Barack Obama Joins Zach Galifianakis on Between Two Ferns

See President Barack Obama like you’ve never seen him before! Don’t worry–it’s nothing salacious or something horrible. But you will see him flex his deadpan comedic chops on Funny or Die’s “Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis.” The web short featured the President get awkwardly interviewed by Galifianakis to hilarious effect. A lot of the time, Galifianakis will take the mick out of his guests, and the President is no exception to the rule. But the President also gets tons of digs at Galifianakis, particularly when it comes to “The Hangover” films. So why was President Obama on Funny or Die?

Barack Obama Slays Zach Galifianakis on "Between Two Ferns"

11 March 2014 11:15 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Barack Obama is a Nobel Prize winner and the 44th president of the U.S, but he's finally arrived at his proudest accomplishment: surviving an episode of "Between Two Ferns" with Zach Galifianakis. And he didn't suffer gladly like Jennifer Aniston; he pushed back with the gale force rancor of Steve Carell. Phew.  Obama joined the "Hangover" star's Funny Or Die series to discuss official U.S. diplomat Dennis Rodman (who could be replaced with Tonya Harding at any moment), basketball, and Zach's rash. President stuff. Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis: President Barack Obama from President Barack Obama »
