In my old age, I’ve gone a bit soft on Mr. James Franco, the writer/actor/director/churlish bon vivant responsible for things like this and this. Maybe it was his spot on impression of himself in “This Is The End” that made me warm to him, but his stupid face doesn’t make me nearly as angry as it used to. Still, I can’t help but enjoy this Christina Aguilera-soundtracked commercial for his forthcoming Comedy Central roast (airing on the network on September 2). The gloved hand is just doing what so many of us wish we could. [Celebuzz]

|Web Redemption – Antoine Dodson|
I know some of you don’t know (or care to know) about Antoine Dodson, but he is my current celebrity obsession, so deal. He is a star, dammit! Learn to love him as I have! Here’s a clip of him taking a rape prevention class on the Comedy Central show “Tosh.0.” No more hiding yo kids or hiding yo wives. Antoine’s gonna find you, bed intruder.

We know good comedy when we see it. Like, for instance, a woman who isn’t afraid to make fun of balls. Yeah, there’s no nice way to say it, they’re just … ugly. A few months ago, we told you Whitney Cummings was a comedienne to watch and now she has her own Comedy Central special called “Whitney Cummings: Money Shot.” You can laugh with Whitney tomorrow night as she pontificates at length on important topics such as balls, porn, and “the pump fake.” Done and done.

If you were alive in the ‘90s, you may find something eerily familiar about “Tosh.0,” the California-based internet clip show now in its third season on Comedy Central. Funny home movies shown to a live studio audience by a host who seems wholesome if you don’t look too closely? If you’re like me, you’re thinking, “I’ve seen this somewhere before.” In 1990, Bob Saget became the face of a show that encouraged laughing at crackpot escapades caught on tape, ABC’s longest-running comedy series, “America’s Funniest Home Videos.” Tosh.0, which airs Wednesdays at 10:30 p.m., is “AFHV”’s nastier, trashier, Twitter-literate younger brother.

Even though Mohammed’s cameo on “South Park” didn’t go over so well, Comedy Central is prepared to show that it doesn’t discriminate when it comes to offending religious groups. Next on their list? Christians. Mr. Jesus Christ himself is going to be starring in his own series called “JC,” from the producers of “The Office” and “American Dad.” It will show a misanthropic, video game-obsessed Christ trying to escape the shadow of his “powerful but apathetic” father and find his way in New York City. Not the resurrection Christians had in mind, I suspect—I’m guessing that some of JC’s devout disciples may not take kindly to seeing their savior playing “Grand Theft Auto” and eating take-out. But it sounds like a comedic gold mine to me. The execs at Comedy Central say the show is still in the early phases of development, so they are not yet concerned about the reaction to it. I wouldn’t be surprised if there were public stoning and/or crucifixion in store for them. No one said comedy martyrdom was easy. So what do you think about “JC”? Hilarious or blasphemous?

What happens when some cads cruise for boobs and document their shenanigans YouTube-style? A ridiculous new Comedy Central series called “Secret Girlfriend.” The show is shot in a first-person format, making the viewer the central character in the lives of a 20-something single guy, his two besties/roommates and the two women in his life he’s trying to keep a secret from each other—psycho ex, Mandy, and new girlfriend, Jessica. I know I should be offended by the idiotic and childish pursuit of female tail, but for some reason all I can do is laugh my ass off at these guys. The fact that these clueless idiots actually think they can get laid is hilarious enough to diffuse their offensive antics. Check out the trailer—I’ll definitely be watching the premiere tomorrow night at 10:30 p.m. My fave one-liner? “I’m telling you … my penis looks really weird,” used as a pick-up line. Amazing!

Comedy Central, the network which, thanks to “The Daily Show” and “The Colbert Report,” has hijacked the news and made it relevant, entertaining, and funny, has greenlighted a TV version of the cult online series “Midwest Teen Sex Show.” Despite its title, the show is hardly hardcore and offers valuable sex education information for teens and young adults via funny sketches about birth control, oral sex, porn, and STDs. It may seem odd that a comedy network is taking up the task of educating teens about sex, but many states do not offer comprehensive sex education. The network has been successful with bringing the news to teens and young adults, so I don’t have a doubt that their joint effort with the “Midwest Teen Sex Show” will rock, too. Check out an online episode! [EW.com] Keep reading »
- Jonas Brothers A Little Bit Longer
The Jonas Brothers have put out! Sadly, we mean just another record. Despite the suggestive title, the handsome teen trio won’t give it or the music biz up anytime soon and they’re pretty hip for being squares.
- The Cure “The Perfect Boy (Mix 13)”
While Robert Smith has been a bit of a Debbie Downer, singing sad songs since the ’90s, it looks like even he’s coming back with the ’80s. The Cure just released a new single, “The Perfect Boy”, and it’s as sexy as the guy it’s about. No word on whether Smith has wiped off his runny mascara and smeared lipstick look too, but hey, at least he still sounds good!
Jon Stewart is a sexy motherf*#%er. The suit, the smirk, the wit, he makes us Frisky gals weak in the knees. Sigh, but of course we’re not the only ones. Comedy Central Insider has been assembling the 25 Sexiest Daily Show Moments, which is quite a daunting task since Stewart is at the top of his game day after day. Sure, some of the selections include correspondents like the girl crushable Rachael Harris, but there’s still mucho Stewart manliness. And the countdown to #1 isn’t over yet! So we would like to respectfully submit our favorite menage a trois moment from the show: Conan O’Brien, Stephen Colbert, and Stewart, dancing and wrestling. The boys are all fired up and grabby, swoooon. [Fark]
