Notaro’s new Netflix special “Happy to Be Here” features a lengthy deconstruction of a misunderstood phrase, centering on how things change after a new baby. With each new angle, it only gets funnier the longer Notaro breaks it down for people who interpret it in different ways.
“It’s almost like I’m, in some way, breaking a major rule of comedy — it’s explaining the joke. Not really explaining the joke, but I’m taking it apart and analyzing it and definitely walking through it with the audience,” Notaro told IndieWire. “In stand up,
Gina Rodriguez will be playing Gina (pictured above), a soccer player on Missy and Jessi’s team. Rodriguez’s upcoming Netflix slate already has includes a previously announced Carmen Sandiego feature film.
Also joining the ranks of the mythic on “Big Mouth” is David Thewlis, who will be voicing The Shame Wizard, which the official press release describes as “the Hormone Monster’s mortal enemy who haunts the kids, stoking their deepest shames.” (Thewlis last played a scary mystical creature with terrible teeth on Season 3 of “Fargo.”)
No word yet on a release date for Season 2, but the stellar cast from the show’s first 10 episodes — Nick Kroll, John Mulaney, Jessi Klein, Maya Rudolph, Jason Mantzoukas, Jordan Peele, Fred Armisen,
20. The Day You Were Born
To celebrate Mother’s Day, Amy Schumer plays a mom telling her fictional son the saccharine story about the day he was born — but flashbacks to the actual day so how horrific it really was. The sketch honors moms by hilariously showing just how tough they have it. Watch the sketch here.
19. Sitcom Reboot
John Mulaney plays the showrunner of an ’80s sitcom that gets a second life thanks to Hollywood’s hunger for reboots. Trouble is,

Kroll’s show, “Big Mouth,” also co-created by Mark Levin and Jennifer Flackett, is an animated show on Netflix that centers on several kids in seventh grade as they navigate their way through puberty. Kroll and Goldberg have been friends since they were children and are the basis for the two main characters, Nick and Andrew, the latter being voiced by John Mulaney.
The fourth season of Showtime’s “The Affair” premieres on June 17 at 9 p.m. Et/Pt. The season promises new lives, new relationships, and the same mistakes. Dominic West, Ruth Wilson, Joshua Jackson, and Maura Tierney star in the drama, which is executive produced by Sarah Treem. Watch the exclusive teaser trailer of the upcoming season below.
Comedian and musician
Fortunately, the Chicago Tribune got in touch with Bittenbender, and he is none too pleased with what he calls Mulaney’s mischaracterization of his appearance — and appearances. In addition to scoffing at the idea he would ever wear a cowboy hat with a three-piece suit (“That...More »
At an Fyc event for the show on Tuesday, the cast and crew gathered to watch a screening of the finale and then participate in a Q&A panel about the HBO comedy. Comedian John Mulaney, who moderated the panel, had the following non-spoilers reaction to the finale: “Boy, oh, boy! Shit!”
That set the tone of the no-holds-barred but hilarious conversation, made even more unruly by the friendship between “Saturday Night Live” alums Mulaney (who had written for “SNL” and recently hosted) and “Barry” star and co-creator Bill Hader. Much of the evening revolved around the two of them setting up comedic bits, performing various impressions or goofy voices, and miming actions that just
Wrong on that front. Somewhat disappointingly (in a way where it really doesn’t
The cold open began with Stiller returning as Donald Trump’s lawyer, Michael Cohen, calling the White House in a panic because of Rudy Giuliani’s recent media blitz.
“Mr. Trump, I don’t know what to do,” Stiller’s Cohen said. “You keep changing the story on the Stormy Daniels payment!”

Baldwin’s Trump, worried about investigators listening in, asked if Cohen was calling from a secure line. Cohen assured him it was, because he dialed *87 before the call. The sketch cut away to FBI agents listening in, wondering what Cohen was even talking about.
Stiller’s Cohen then tried calling Trump back on his burner cell phones, but accidentally called a number of other people in and around Trump. First, it was Trump’s doctor, Harold Bornstein, played by Martin Short in a surprise.
“This is Dr. Harold Bornstein, would you like to know any of my patients’ medical history?” Short’s Bornstein asked as he answered the phone.

“Michael, I’m glad you called, someone broke into my office and stole my files,” Bornstein continued. “I guess you could say I was raped!”
Next, Cohen called Giuliani, played by a hilariously made-up Kate McKinnon. Cohen added Giuliani to the call with Trump to talk about collusion and obstruction of justice, even though Giuliani was currently on a show on Fox News.
Cohen accidentally called Omarosa Manigault, played by Leslie Jones, and then Ivanka Trump — with Scarlett Johansson reprising the role — and Jared Kushner, played by Jimmy Fallon.

Finally, Trump asked Cohen to call Stormy Daniels and end this “once and for all,” while Baldwin’s Trump stayed on the lines. In a surprise twist, instead of Daniels being played by a well-known star, the actual Daniels answered the phone.
“Stormy, this is Michael Cohen,” Stiller’s Cohen said. “Are you alone?”
“And what are you wearing?” Trump asked.
Trump finally hung up on Cohen, taking the call himself.
“What do you need for this to go away?” Trump continued.
“A resignation,” Daniels responded.
“My polls are finally up, and speaking of polls being up,” Trump returned. “We’ll always have Shark Week.”
“Sorry, I know you don’t believe in Climate Change, but a storm’s a-comin’ baby,” Daniels told him, to end the sketch.

But there are some comics who take the reverse route: They’ve got enough punchlines to fill out a late night packet or a Twitter feed and spend time bulking up the means of delivery.

There is definitely one upside to the news: The last time a person of color hosted the Emmys was 1996, when Oprah Winfrey hosted with Michael J. Fox and Paul Reiser (the ’90s!). That is far too long a gap, and correcting it here with Che is a good move.
But the last time any major awards show — the Oscars, Emmys, or Golden Globes — was hosted by a woman was 2015, when Tina Fey and Amy Poehler dropped the mic at the Globes. And the last time the Emmys was Mc’ed by a woman was 2011, when Jane Lynch
