The Dana Carvey Show (1996– )
"I don't fancy myself a talent scout, but we did look at 300 people, and pretty soon, over time, we kept on looking at the 'Two Steves,' as I think I nicknamed you," Carvey said in a guest appearance on Colbert's show on Wednesday. Carvey first appeared on the show in an impression of John Bolton, the former Fox News analyst...
The duo will be honored at the 70th Annual Writers Guild Awards at New York’s Edison Ballroom on Feb. 11. The WGA East gives the award to writers “who embody the spirit, commitment, and comic genius of Mr. Sargent, as well as his dedication to mentoring new writers.”
Sargent served as president of the WGA East for 14 years and his credits include being a writer/producer of “Saturday Night Live” for more than 20 years. The Sargent Award has previously been presented to Judd Apatow, Steve O’Donnell, Gary David Goldberg, Norman Stiles, Lorne Michaels, and James L. Brooks.
“We are honored to accept the Herb Sargent Award for Comedy Excellence,” Fey and Carlock said. “This is particularly meaningful for us as Herb created ‘Weekend Update,’ which is where we first worked together in the late ’90s. Like
“I feel dumb,” Colbert said at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark, at the seventh annual fundraiser for New Jersey non-profit Montclair Film (via our sister site Deadline). “I’m not surprised that men are bad but… I didn’t know about Louis C.K. I didn’t even know about Cosby! And that’s dumb.”

Bee said she is pleased that all of these sexual harassment scandals are now coming to light.
C.K., who was set to appear on CBS’ The Late Show, cancelled at the last minute after he was accused of sexual misconduct by five women, several of whom alleged that the comedian masturbated in front of them without their consent. Colbert, who worked with C.K. on the short-lived 1996 sketch-comedy series The Dana Carvey Show, addressed the allegations head-on in a monologue

Part of that bittersweet satisfaction comes from the retroactive knowledge that some of the major players in this saga would go on to shape the modern comedy landscape. Colbert and Carell got their first big breaks as “Dana Carvey Show” cast members, while Smigel would eventually go on to a vaunted comedy writing career (including being

But to refer to this quality as some kind of supernatural power does a disservice to the men and women who forge it. There is the talent of each individual performer to consider: If any of them falter, the whole dynamic falls apart. It’s a dynamic that requires work, too. Whether it’s bonding in real-life or being a good listener on set, chemistry is a science for these casts; it’s made, not found.
Then there’s the versatility of expanding these connections beyond just one or two cast members, but an entire ensemble of six or so series regulars. The best ensembles work no matter who’s paired up in a scene, and it feels like the TV can barely contain
The new trailer captures the ridiculous media spectacle that surrounded the King-Riggs match-up, as well as its significant cultural underpinnings. While Carell's Riggs – boasting bushy, Seventies-style sideburns – spews all sorts of sexist nonsense and returns lobs with a frying pan, Stone's King fights for her rightful place in the history books and

The President’s Award
Actress Jirina Bohdalová will receive the President’s Award at the upcoming 51st Karlovy Vary Intl. Film Festival. A force in Czech entertainment for nearly 80 years and one of its most beloved figures, the still-active Bohdalová’s career spans stage, film, and television performances. Cementing her reputation as a national treasure, she also hosted (with Vladimír Dvorák) the massively successful, long-running, live TV sketch show “Televarieté,” dubbed foreign films and provided expressive voice work on numerous Czech animated TV series, particularly the fairy tales created for “Evening Story.” [“Vecernícek”]. Writer-director Slávek Horák [“Home Care”] recalls, “Whole generations [including mine] grew up listening to her every evening at 7, universally accepted by kids and parents as the bedtime call.”
So ubiquitous a figure is “Bohdalka” [as her fans affectionately refer to her] that it is nearly impossible to conceive of Czech popular culture without her.
Born in 1931 to a working-class family in Prague, Bohdalová was a precocious extrovert from a young age.
