For those of you who haven’t seen “Workaholics” on Comedy Central, you’re missing out on life. Adam, Ders and Blake are like the modern day “Three Stooges” except way dirtier, and they’re looking for a fourth cube mate. In this hilarious video, Seth Rogen and Zac Efron both try out for the spot by showing off their best “vibes,” flashing their circumcised penises and trying to sell their Judaism to the group. Zac also gives the trio a sultry lap dance, which I will now add to my spank bank for future reference. Which guy would you choose as your cube mate: Zac or Seth? Decide while you’re laughing so hard you pee a little.
As if we didn’t already have enough reasons to say RIP Society: French “YouTube comedian” (I know) Remi Baillard recently released a video called “Free Sex,” in which he’s filmed pretending to fuck unsuspecting women in public. Invariably, the women notice Baillard air-humping them and give him dirty looks. And this dumb shit actually has over five and a half million views.
Yes, that’s right. A sketch form of a rape joke — which I can only assume was inspired by “Austin Powers 3,” circa 2002? — got almost six million hits. I was one of those hits and not only did I not laugh, but I was transported back to 7th grade. You remember 7th grade? It’s a time when the 12-year-old boys were so tiresome and immature that merely walking in front of a group of them would make my eyes roll back into the base of my cerebellum. Keep reading »
CBS announced today that Stephen Colbert has signed a five-year contract to replace David Letterman as host of the “Late Show” when Letterman retires next year. In a statement, Colbert said, “Simply being a guest on David Letterman’s show has been a highlight of my career. I never dreamed that I would follow in his footsteps, though everyone in late night follows Dave’s lead.” While I love Stephen Colbert, I’m really bummed that Letterman’s shoes will be filled by yet another older white man on late night TV. What about Chelsea Handler? Wanda Sykes? Even Ellen DeGeneres? They’ve all proven themselves as both comedians and hosts. But of all the dudes whose names were tossed around as possible replacements, I’m glad it’s Colbert. But it’s still a mixed blessing. [New York Times] [Image via Getty]
You never forget your first time. For me, it was five years ago. I’d just moved to Los Angeles and wanted to meet new people. I stood in line outside for almost an hour. When the doors finally opened and I settled into my spot, the lights dimmed and “Love Will Keep Us Together” by The Captain & Tennille started playing on the stereo. When the lights came back up, I knew it was show time. I was about to experience Ronna & Beverly live and, after that, I knew nothing would ever be the same again.
If the names Ronna & Beverly, don’t feel bad. That’s why I’m here: To help introduce you to some of the funniest female writing/performing teams this side of the 45th parallel. Some you might recognize from their work on the small screen and others you might know from being scene-stealers on the big screen. Either way, once you discover the comedic genius of these six dynamic duos, everything’s gonna change.
Don’t worry. This won’t hurt a bit. Keep reading »
Recently, London comedian Jenny Collier tweeted a screen grab of an email she received from a booker informing her that she was kicked off a show because there were too many women already on the line-up.
Yes. That’s right. Keep reading »
Who would’ve thought a rock song about handies would include such awesome riffs? And who knew there were so many creative lyrics about them? Before Jonah Hill became the star of “Superbad,” he was music producer “Slick Rubin” in this several-years-old Maroon 5 video. (How young does Adam Levine look here?) The skit is pretty hilarious, but the song itself is surprisingly fun to listen to. Something tells me that if Jonah actually wrote lyrics for the band, we’d be hearing something a bit more creative on the radio these days … if it wasn’t bleeped out. [Gawker]
Admittedly a cappella is not for everyone. For those of you who are suffering from “Breaking Bad” withdrawal (all of us), have a listen to this a cappella cover of the show’s theme song. The Warp Zone, the group of comedians behind the video, have done the same for theme songs of shows like “Doctor Who” and “Game of Thrones.” And they do it in costume! Have a listen? [Laughing Squid]
Last night was John Oliver’s last episode on “The Daily Show” as he gears up to host an HBO comedy series next year. He spent over seven years with the show, and even stepped in as host this summer. Jon Stewart refreshed audiences on some of Oliver’s best moments and made for a teary farewell. I couldn’t watch it without tearing up myself. Best of luck, John! [NYMag.com]
Single this holiday season? Me too! And so is the hilarious Akilah Hughes, who you might remember from her awesome “Meet Your First Black Girlfriend” video. She’s ridin’ solo, and in this video, shows you how to make Christmas cookies for singles, no fucks to give about any exes, nope none. [YouTube]
“I wasn’t getting much work before the incident, which was one of the reasons I was ding-donging around in those clubs late at night, unannounced — coming in and working on material. I thought I would try to reinvent myself. … What happened in the club? Oh, that’ll never happen again. I know how to behave, to consciously behave. When something like that comes up, I don’t let the heat of anger burn me up as it did. When you’re under the helm of anger, watch out, ’cause it’ll take you down. It’s like being possessed by a demon. [I was angry] at the act, angry that it wasn’t funny, angry that I was being interrupted, angry that I’m not as good as I would like to be. You know, I was frustrated that night, and so I turned on everybody.”
Remember back in 2006 when the actor who played Kramer on “Seinfeld” was doing standup in a club and he got mad at a heckler and started screaming the N-word? Well, Michael Richards is headed back to TV on Kirstie Alley’s new sitcom and he’s spoken with TIME magazine about the incident. It is actually one of the most honest apologies that a celebrity has ever given for bad behavior. He also said that after the incident, he took a break from show business to do personal work on himself and reconnect with his family and that helped him stop being a douchebag. It doesn’t excuse the harm Richards caused, of course. But it does illuminate how people who are unkind act out in racist or homophobic or sexist ways because have huuuuge underlying issues. Are you listening, Alec Baldwin? [TIME via Gossip Cop]
