Seth & Amy Ask Kanye: “Really?”

Getting called a “jackass” by Obama must smart. But Kanye West, you were a real douchebag. Your punishment for interrupting sweet lil’ Taylor Swift isn’t up ’til Amy Poehler and Seth Meyers have their way with you on “Weekend Update!”

And next time, Kanye, don’t be chugging Hennessy on the red carpet. Really. Keep reading »

“Saturday Night Live” Signs Two New Cast Members With Vajayjays

My dream job (aside from being a Frisky blogger, of course) would be “SNL” cast member. After Amy Poehler left the show last season, I thought I had my chance and I quickly got to work developing characters for the show. Well, I guess you’ll have to wait a while longer to see Miss Teenage America and Bird With The Broken Wing because two funny ladies have snatched up my job out from under my nose. Foiled again! Rumor has it that comediennes Jenny Slate (center) and Nasim Pedrad (left) will join ridiculously funny Kristen Wiig (right) representing ladyfolk on the show, along with Abby Elliott, Michaela Watkins, and Casey Wilson. That brings the female-to-male cast ratio to 4:3. That’s the most women on the show in 35 years! [Mediaite.com] Keep reading »

Amy Poehler Brings The Funny Back To SNL Weekend Update

Holy hilarity! Thursdays this fall just got funnier. “SNL” alum/comic genius Amy Poehler will return to her comedic anchor seat alongside Seth Meyers for “Saturday Night Live Weekend Update Thursdays.” My all-time favorite “SNL” skit took a hit when Tina Fey and Amy left the show, but the Thursday night special that began during the presidential election is back. And hopefully, the Poehler-punch will bring it back to its original level of awesomeness. “Weekend Update Thursdays” starts September 17, before the premieres of “Parks and Recreation” and “30 Rock.” If you squint hard enough, you can pretend that Amy and Tina are both behind the anchor’s desk, together again.

Who’s America’s Sexiest Comedienne?

Obviously, we are big Tina Fey, Amy Sedaris, and Aisha Tyler enthusiasts. So we immediately clicked on this Huffington Post poll about 15 of the leading ladies of funny. But—wait—it asks readers to rate the women on their looks? Even HuffPo acknowledges that it’s a “poll of ridiculous proportions.” Sure, these women are beautiful. But it’s their wit, slapstick antics, and all-around hilariousness that stole our hearts. So while we wished they asked, “Who’s the funniest comedienne?” we decided to take a look at the current rankings. What we found may surprise you. Keep reading »

    Amy Poehler May Star In Office Spin Off

    Everybody wants Amy Poehler. And rumor has it, she’s going to give it to primetime! SNL’s Emmy-nominated, crazysexycool comedianne has been in talks to join the cast of a much buzzed about spin-off of The Office. So far, one of the funny men of Human Giant, Aziz Ansari, is slated for the show, but there’s still no word on who is going to play the Steve Carrell-style boss role. While Amy seems to be the top contender, the problem is she’s knocked up for reals, like her character in Baby Mama — except with her real husband, Will Arnett, not Tina Fey. The spin-off was set to start taping in the fall so it could air after the Superbowl, but that would also coincide with her baby bump making its debut. But we think Amy can do anything! NBC, she’s worth waiting for. Amy, go and get your show, baby! [Reuters] Keep reading »
