Maya Rudolph made a cameo on last night’s “Saturday Night Live,” resurrecting her FLAWLESS Beyonce impression as she joined husband Jay Z and sister Solange to comment on their recent elevator fight scandal.

Comedians Maya Rudolph and Danny McBride posed for a series of awkward family photos for GQ. The safari family and the goths are my two favorites, but as you can imagine, they’re all pretty ridiculous. The most awkward part of it all, according to McBride, was the casting announcement for their fake children.

Look, I am not one of those people who is nostalgic for the good ol’ days of “Saturday Night Live,” when the Coneheads and Pat were making everyone laugh. No, I like “SNL” now. But that doesn’t mean it always cracks me up. Usually I watch the show on Sunday mornings, with my coffee and… READ MORE »

I found last night’s Screen Actors Guild Awards to be terribly dull, aside from learning the rules behind Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, and Melissa McCarthy’s fun drinking game. So, here’s how it works: every time someone says Martin Scorcese’s name (so, you know, often), take a drink! Scorcese! Scorcese! I’m drunk!  … READ MORE »

Jennifer Westfeldt is some kind of voodoo witch doctor sorcerer. Not only has she captured the heart of Jon Hamm, but she has also written and directed a romantic comedy with an ensemble cast and, you guys, you’re not going to slit your wrists while watching it. “Friends With Kids” comes out March 9 and… READ MORE »

It’s a good time to be a woman holding the remote: We are supposedly in a renaissance of women producing, writing and starring in their own TV shows. There’s “Whitney,” produced by and starring comic Whitney Cummings; there’s “Two Broke Girls,” written and produced by Cummings and starring the amazing Kat Dennings; “Pan Am,” starring… READ MORE »

There is so much to love about about this French TV interview with “Bridesmaids”‘ stars Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph. For starters, “Bridesmaids” is called a raunchy comedy, which apparently translates to “les comedies pee-pee, ca-ca coo” or something in French. And then somehow the interview devolves into a discussion about possible film plots… READ MORE »

I can’t wait — like, cannot wait — for “Bridesmaids” to come out. Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, Jon Hamm (!!!), and food poisoning jokes? Yes, please.

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.
