'Last Comic Standing' returning to NBC

'Last Comic Standing' returning to NBC
Did you hear the one about the stand-up comedy competition that returned to NBC after a four-year hiatus?

We actually don’t have a punchline for that question. Because we’re not comics. But the contestants are on Last Comic Standing are comics. And NBC is bringing back the show after taking an extended break from the format.

The eighth season of Last Comic Standing, which first launched in 2003, will air next summer on NBC. The broadcaster actually cancelled the series in 2004 after three cycles, but then brought it back in 2006. After the seventh season in 2010, the show went off the air again,

Paul Bhattacharjee obituary

Elegant and meticulous actor whose work ranged from Shakespeare to EastEnders

Paul Bhattacharjee, who has been found dead aged 53, was one of the country's leading British Asian actors, a key member of Jatinder Verma's Tara Arts, a regular at the Royal Shakespeare Company – he was last seen in the West End last year, playing Benedick opposite Meera Syal in the RSC's Much Ado About Nothing – and a popular television and film actor whose roles included Inzamam in the BBC soap EastEnders, an immigration officer called Mohammed in Stephen Frears's Dirty Pretty Things (2002) and parts in the Bond movie Casino Royale (2006) and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (2011).

He was tall, slim and naturally funny, always meticulous in his movement and perfect in his articulation. He reminded me of an elegant bird – a heron, perhaps, or a flamingo. His eyes twinkled as much as they burned. He slowed things down, rather than speeded them up,

Now, a paid 'no sex' male escort service for gals looking for groovy dates

Now, a paid 'no sex' male escort service for gals looking for groovy dates
Melbourne, Feb 6: A male escort company from Australia thinks there's a market in Brisbane for a non-sexual escort service.

However, critics doubt that women will take to the idea, instead, preferring genuine companionship.

Male Escorts Brisbane, which is the brainchild of entrepreneur Anthony Clark, said that he believed the agency was the first of its kind in the River City for women seeking male company.

"I'm guessing there are quite a few lonely ladies out there who are reasonably wealthy and looking for companionship either for dinner or for an activity," the Courier Mail quoted him as saying.

He said that.

North And Hastings' 'Galaga' Webcomic Is The Best Argument To Keep Nasa Alive

De-fund the American space agency, leave the planet open to invasion by massive space bees--that's the argument I'm getting from Ryan North and Christopher Hastings' "Galaga" webcomic. The "Invasion" storyline has just begun, and you should be reading it.

The strip launched over on gaming-themed comics site Shifty Look, with a script by "Dinosaur Comics" writer Ryan North and "The Adventures of Dr. McNinja" creator Christopher Hastings. Both writers are adept at taking the absurd and making it rad: in this case, an intergalactic* bee invasion, and the Earth what's gonna fight them off.

North and Hastings are joined by Anthony Clark on colors, so you can blame him for those terrifyingly iridescent bees.

The first installment of "Invasion" launched on Monday, with new pages each subsequent day.

*I have no proof that these bees are from another galaxy.

Barry Katz Relaunches His Management Company, Brings All Clients From New Wave

Exclusive: Following his recent exit from New Wave Entertainment, veteran comedy talent manager Barry Katz is going solo again with the relaunch of Barry Katz Entertainment.

Tcaf 2011 Review: Dr. McNinja: Night Powers

I hate newspaper comic strips with ongoing storylines. How anyone can follow an arc of Spider-Man over the course of four months is beyond me. My opinion of webcomics is about the same: anything with a continuous thread more than five panels long gets on my nerves. Thankfully, Dark Horse Books has been compiling some of the most prolific webcomics into hefty printed volumes, the latest of which is Christopher Hastings’ The Adventures of Dr. McNinja: Night Powers, which debuted at the Toronto Comic Arts Festival.

Dr. McNinja has been around the interwebs for several years now, but all you have to know when picking up this volume is that the main character is both a doctor and a ninja. If you can wrap your head around this concept, Hastings does rather well taking it from there.

Night Powers contains three full-length features – “Monster Mart,” “Death Volley,” and “Doc Gets

The 10 Least "Must See" NBC Thursday Night TV Sitcoms

  • Pajiba
Since the mid-1980s, NBC has always had at least two sitcom footholds during their Must See Thursday offerings, with shows like: "The Cosby Show," "Family Ties" "Different Strokes," "Mad About You," "Night Court," "Cheers," "Taxi," "Seinfeld," "Frasier," "Friends," and -- for the last few years -- "The Office" and "30 Rock." But the network has often struggled to fill in those gaps. launching a number of mediocre to putrid sitcoms in those holes. Yet, up until "Friends" left the air, and before the prevalence of DVRs, NBC had such a stronghold on on the night, that many of those sitcoms managed top ten ratings. Few probably remember the Christina Applegate sitcom, Jesse," for instance, but it ran for two years. In its first year, it was the sixth-highest rated show of 1998 -1999, receiving about two-and-a-half times more viewers than "The Office" does today (or five times the viewers of "Community.

Can Ed Hall rise to the Hampstead theatre challenge? | Lyn Gardner

Mike Leigh and Athol Fugard star in Hall's ambitious bid to restore Hampstead to its illustrious past

It's good to see Ed Hall installed at Hampstead and announcing a juicy opening season: it includes Hall directing Shelagh Stephenson's Enlightenment, Athol Fugard at the helm of his own play, The Train Driver, and Melly Still's Beasts and Beauties, a funny, magical piece that premiered at Bristol Old Vic a few years back (not to mention the return of Mike Leigh, who will direct his 1979 hit Ecstasy.

It's brave of Hall to take on the Hampstead challenge, a theatre that has already seen off Anthony Clark, and has never really recovered from the move from its leaky old premises to a spanking new theatre. The place might have keeled over entirely if it had not been for the Arts Council's determination not to see it fail.

Craig Robinson to Host 'Last Comic Standing'

Craig Robinson to Host 'Last Comic Standing'
Maybe it's because NBC needs programming, especially during the summer. Maybe it's because the network needed a companion to 'America's Got Talent.' But it does seem like 'Last Comic Standing' has become the 'According to Jim' of reality shows, doesn't it? The show just doesn't die, no matter how much NBC and its producers have tried to kill it.

The folks who brought us the genius idea of Jay Leno at 10Pm has decided to resurrect 'Last Comic,' which they canned in 2008, for a summer run, according to Joe Adalian at The Wrap. Craig Robinson of 'The Office' and the forthcoming comedy flick 'Hot Tub Time Machine' has been tabbed to host.

At least the new host gives me hope for this new version. Robinson has a great comic presence, whether he's intimidating Michael Scott as warehouse foreman Darryl Philbin, or just doing his stand-up at a local club.
