James Franco roast

James Franco has announced that James Franco will be the subject of the next Comedy Central Roast. A roast, if you’re not familiar, is basically where a bunch of comedy friends, frenemies and acquaintances get together to make completely vulgar and tasteless jokes about each other. Comedy! Franco announced his impending ridicule via Instagram (as you do), so it must be real? We have no idea who’s gonna show up — we imagine roast regulars like Lisa Lampanelli and Jeffrey Ross will be there — but to help the powers that be at CC figure out who else to bring along, we’ve compiled this helpful list: Keep reading »

Melissa McCarthy Outperforms Comedy’s Leading Men — Remind Me Again Why “Women Aren’t Funny”?

Melissa McCarthy Outperforms Comedy's Leading Men

We all know that Melissa McCarthy is on a roll — between “Bridesmaids,” “Identity Theft,” and now the $40 million dollar opening of her buddy-cop movie “The Heat,” this lady is on fire.

What you may not know is this: McCarthy is also outperforming her male comedian colleagues and co-stars by millions.

According to comparisons between McCarthy’s recent movies and those of her male counterparts at comparable points in their careers, McCarthy is millions of dollars and one Oscar nomination ahead of male comedians like Will Farrell, Steve Carrell, Jason Bateman, Jonah Hill, and Seth Rogen.

Tell me why women “aren’t funny” again? Really. I’d like to know. Read more on The Mary Sue…

Comedy Central’s “Inside Amy Schumer” Employing Comedy Writer Kurt Metzger Who Talks On Facebook About Choking An Ex

  • Why is Comedy Central still employing “Inside Amy Schumer” staff writer Kurt Metzger given his disturbing behavior towards women on Twitter and his admission on Facebook that he once choked an ex-girlfriend? The comic, who has been vocal about defending any and all rape jokes, has been accused by Jezebel blogger Lindy West and Tiger Beatdown blogger Sady Doyle of making impersonator social media accounts of them. (Turns out he has a loooong history of acting crazy online.) Along with sexualized namecalling and claiming that statistics about rape are “bullshit,”  Metzger also wrote on Facebook about a time he choked a woman: “I had an ex smash all my shit with a hammer because she was insane and I choked her. Not really hard, but definitely criminally.” Eeek. I’m no lawyer, but this guy not only sounds like a douchebag but also a liability. What gives, Comedy Central? [Daily Dot] Keep reading »

"The Loophole"
You can't procreate if you anally copulate.

“The Loophole” is another brilliant piece of musical comedy from Garfunkel & Oates, the duo that brought you “29/31.” This time, they’ve moved on from single bitterness to Christian girls who stay “virgins” until they’re married but have anal sex instead. Otherwise known as “going to fifth base” or having “the sex that God can’t see.” They also refer to touching the clitoris as “ringing Satan’s doorbell,” which just killed me. [Jezebel]

What “Girls” Season 38 Would Be Like

"Girls" Season 38 Comedy Video
The Same Only With More Bunions

As popular and critically acclaimed as HBO’s “Girls” may be, chances are we won’t get to see Hannah, Marnie, Shoshanna and Jessa doing whatever it is they’d be doing in their golden years. But, say, what do you think they would be doing? This video does a pretty good job imagining what season 38 of the show would be like — exactly the same, but with more bunions. [YouTube]

A Funny Rape Joke?

The Internet Rape Joke Wars have been waged, on and off, since at least last year, when comedian Daniel Tosh responded to a woman who had challenged him during his set about the number of rape jokes he was making with, “Wouldn’t it be funny if that girl got raped by, like, five guys right now?” (The questions about rape jokes pre-date The Tosh Incident, of course, but that was the watershed moment in which those questions broke into the mainstream – at one point, Louis CK had to go on “The Daily Show” to address a seemingly-supportive tweet that he’d made to Tosh.) Since then, the debate has heated up and cooled down, depending on what jokes comedians are making.

Most recently, it was a low-profile comic named Sam Morril, whose set was challenged in a column by feminist blogger Sady Doyle, that reignited the issue. And last week, feminist and comedian Lindy West of Jezebel took to television and debated the issue with comic Jim Norton on FX’s “Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell.” During the 12-minute segment, West made her points, Barry made his, and a lot of people on the Internet came away from the discussion with the exact same opinion they started with.

West’s argument centered around the (mathematically hard to dispute) fact that, sitting in the crowd each night a comic performs, there’s likely to be someone who has survived a sexual assault, and these jokes are likely to make that person’s night much, much harder. That’s true, and it’s absolutely worth considering. But there’s someone else who is likely to be in that room to hear it at some point, too, and how the joke will make that person feel is important, too. I’m talking about the rapist. Keep reading »
