Jon Stewart & Seth Meyers brought their A game for Donald Trump!
June 17th, 2015 under Comedy Central, Conan O'Brien, Seth Meyers. [ Comments: none ]



Yesterday, Donald Trump announced that he is running for President and every comedian and talk show host simultaneously had an orgasm. And leave it up to Jon Stewart and his Daily Show correspondents to actually show us how excited they are about the news.
Before we got to see that, and oh yes, yes, yes, it’s worth watching the whole thing to get the climax because we can all use a little foreplay. What was I talking about? Oh yeah, Stewart talked about Trump’s announcement and his reaction is why we are going to all miss him in 6 weeks. Does he really have to go? Didn’t Trump’s announcement make him want to say?
Anyways with him going, and no one left of his caliber at Comedy Central, it looks like Seth Meyers could actually become our go to Political Humorist. His take on Trump’s announcement proves why NBC didn’t make a mistake when they gave him Late Night. Now that the race that’s about 16 months away is heating up, I hope he does more segments like this one because it was brilliant.
Trump isn’t the only person who said “I am running for President” and Conan O’Brien came up with a political ad for Jeb Bush that I am sure that Lincoln Chafee will approve of. Don’t know who Lincoln Chafee is, Google him!

Larry Wilmore’s favorite show is 19 Kids and Counting!
May 27th, 2015 under Comedy Central. [ Comments: none ]


Larry Wilmore had the week off and Jon Stewart asked him at the end of The Daily Show what he did with his time off. The Nightly Show host told him that he unplugged from the world and caught up on his favorite show, 19 Kids and Counting. After he said that Stewart tried to break the news to him, but Wilmore said, “It was just so nice to watch a show about a family with togetherness and good old fashioned values.” Then he added, “You know, I hope nothing happens that makes me recontextualize their closeness and isolation to something dangerous.”
Stewart once again tried to update him about the Duggars’ situation over the last week, but he just didn’t have the heart to do it. Jon could tell the TLC show touched Larry in a special place, and he didn’t want to do an alleged Josh Duggar and touch him there when he was unaware of what happening to him. Especially, since he is so young at this hosting job and Stewart’s the oldest one in the Comedy Central family. You have to respect him for refraining from his urges to do something so horrible like that and take away from Wilmore’s innocence. Right?

@midnight translates R2D2 beeps and boops!
April 10th, 2015 under Comedy Central, Star Wars. [ Comments: none ]


The Star Wars movie franchise is available on Digital HD for the first time today and R2D2 promoted the release on @midnight yesterday. Strange choice (although not really because their audience is the same as Star Wars’), but it works because they put words in his mouth that no one else would ever dare. And yes they went there with a joke about Hans Solo crashing into a golf course. To see if the comedians went even further than that, you can just have to watch.
The only negative, is Chris Hadwick didn’t offer any suggestions. What in beep and boop is that all about?

Trevor Noah is the new host of The Daily Show
March 30th, 2015 under Comedy Central. [ Comments: none ]


Comedy Central has yet to make it official, but The New York Times is reporting that Trevor Noah will replace Jon Stewart as the host of The Daily Show later this year.
Are you going, “Who is he?” The South African comedian made his debut on the show back in December. Since then he has made only 2 more appearances. You might say, that Comedy Central is taking a huge risk by hiring an unknown to take the job. Actually, you can totally say it. You know, it is going to piss off the veterans who have worked on the show for years. I am sure even Larry Wilmore is going, WTF? He gets the second hour and this newbie gets the prime show. Can’t blame him if he was pissed about it.
While his newness can be an issue for fans, I think the bigger problem is going to come as soon as he starts. A big emphasis of The Daily Show is American Politics. That means he is going to have to start learning everything he can in the next few months or he will be screwed when he starts because, at that time, we are a year away from picking a new President of the United States. I’ve lived here my whole life, and I still have no clue what goes on during the election. So he has work cut out for him.
And so does Comedy Central. Hopefully they will do a better job than CBS did with James Corden when it comes to getting the word out about the virtually unknown host.
What do you think of the pick?

UPDATE: Comedy Central just made it official.

Martha Stewart and Shaq are going to rip Justin Bieber a new one!
March 5th, 2015 under Comedy Central, Justin Bieber, Martha Stewart, Shaquille O'Neal. [ Comments: 1 ]


Comedy Central announced today who is going to Roast Justin Bieber on March 30th and it is an all-star lineup! They got Snoop Dogg, Ludacris, Shaquille O’Neal, Martha Stewart, Hannibal Buress, Chris D’Elia, Natasha Leggero and Jeffrey Ross. Sadly though for Justin, Seth Rogen is not on the list. Which I think makes it even better.
You know, the Domestic Goddess is going to kill it, as will Shaq. Both of them have a really good sense of humor. Plus, the dais should be afraid of them because she did time and he is over 7′ tall. When it comes to the comedians, I can’t wait to see what the Beebs’ good friend D’Elia has to say about everyone. I’ve seen him at 2 events promoting Undateable and both times he had me busting a gut!
Comedy Central had me when they decided to Roast Beiber, then they gave me some whipped cream when they made Hart the RoastMaser and this dais is so the cherry on top of it all! March 30th can’t come soon enough!
