Will Forte told Seth Meyers on Late Night that his family and his The Last Man on Earth castmates have given him a nickname and it is Uncle Stinky? Why? Well one day when his niece and nephew came to visit him, he farted around them and they noticed the smell. Ever since then they added stinky to his title. Something he will never get rid because farting is always funny to kids even when they become adults.
So much so, his co-star Mary Steenburgen challenged him to fart every day he is on the set of hilarious Fox comedy. He accepted her challenge, but it has one big rule. They cannot be silent but deadly, you actually have to hear the bomb go off and not just breath in the fumes. Did he succeed? Yes, but sadly for the noses on the set there were some misses.
And folks, that is why he is known as Uncle Stinky. You know, I am thinking he should change the O in his last name to an A. What do you think of that idea?
One last note, the best part of this funny interview because farts are always funny, is when the NBC late night host asked him, “How do you do it?” Without hesitation Farte, I mean Forte, told him, “Out of my butt!” Know we know why Last Man on Earth is as brilliant as it is because the creator is naturally that way. Maybe he will do an episode about his farting? Although, if he did, he might once again become the last man on Earth.
The Last Man on Earth returned yesterday after its winter break with a triumph episode starring pretty much just Kristen Wiig giving a brilliant performance. Yet, there was one scene that has left everyone talking about it.
The Fox sitcom takes place in the future, and yesterday’s episode took place around 2020. During that time, the 46th President of the United States Mike Pence rules America. When and how he took over from 45 we don’t know, but what we do know is that he dies from the virus that is quickly wiping out almost all of the World’s population. Since it is killing everyone in its path, we also lost POTUS 47 Paul Davis Ryan, Jr, POTUS 48 Rex Wayne Tillerson, POTUS 49 Steven Terner Mnuchin, POTUS 50 Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III and POTUS 51 Betsy DeVos. I guess that is proof that 45 really will kill us all.
Crap they just took a hilariously funny moment and made me just want to go ball up into a fetal position and cry until there is nothing left to cry.
No seriously, if you are not watching The Last Man on Earth, you are missing out on one of the funniest shows on television that is full of heart. A lot of heart and that is why I love it so much. While most of Apocalyptic shows, end up with it being about humans vs humans like The Walking Dead, Z Nation and Leftovers, on LMOE the surviving human become a family. That is why I get bored with all of those Zombie dramas, which are no longer about people vs the Undead. Instead, they are about survivors battling it out with other survivors. How can humankind survive that? You know what I mean. I want to believe if there were only a few of us left, we would get along and not try to kill each other. Just like on Last Man where the nerdy dude gets to procreate with almost all of the last women on Earth. A tough job, but somebody has to do it. I said, ‘do it!’
On that note since that is Tandy’s (Will Forte) humor, I will once again implore you to watch The Last Man on Earth every Sunday at 9:30p on Fox!
The Last Man on Earth is finally back on Fox tonight at 9:30p and Kristen Wiig stars in the standalone episode that shows us for the first time what it was like when the virus killed almost everyone on Earth.
When we first met Phil Miller (Will Forte) the virus had almost wiped out most of the people on Earth, but we never knew what it was it was like when it was happening. In the first two and a half seasons, we have gotten glimpses of what it was like, but tonight Kristen Wiig finally shows us what really happened.
Pamela Brinton (Wiig) is a rich socialite who heads a foundation that helps dogs like her best friend Jeremy. The episode starts off with her holding a fundrasing gala and then one of the party goers suddenly collapses with blood coming from his nose. It is the first sign they will see of the virus and yet they don’t know how serious it is going to get.
In the coming days her husband and her eat breakfast as nothing going is on. Then she goes on a car ride and that is when she starts to see just how serious it is. There is one image that convinces her it is much more worse than she thought. When she gets home, she is convinced that there is a cure in the works. That is until a very funny gag that will have you applauding proves her wrong.
As time goes on the only survivors are just her husband, her, Jeremy and her arch nemesis Catherine. Catherine and her husband bought an underground bunker to go to until a cure is found. They never make it and neither does Pamela’s husband.
Pamela grabs Jeremy and they move into the bunker where they will spend the next few years. For over half of the episode, it is just her talking to her dog as they try to make time go by faster as they believe they are the Last Two Living Things on Earth. One of those ways to keep themselves busy is a drone and it gives her a glimpse of what the outside world looks like. One day, she will find out that there is life outside the bunker and that is when she will decide to go out to find those other people. And that is where the episode ends. `
Just when you think that Kristen Wiig can’t top herself, she does something like this. The Last Man on Earth gets better each week and tonight’s episode is just another shining example of that.
My only complaint is that we have to wait another week to find out what happened to our original Last People!
Tonight at 9p on Fox’s Family Guy, Peter dresses up as Santa Claus and realizes all the benefits that come with the costume. Since he is Peter, he takes advantage of anything and everything, and the real Kris Kringle doesn’t like it. Thus, he has a talk with him and puts him on his naughty list. But it is the man in red who gets naughty with him. Will Peter keep doing what he is doing or will Santa win?
He isn’t the only bad Griffin in the family, Brian and Stewie crash Office Christmas parties. One time they go too far and it might finally teach them the lesson they need.
This is not your happy Christmas special, but it definitely is a very funny one.
Then at 9:30p on Fox’s The Last Man on Earth’s Fall Finale, it looks like everyone might not make it back for the Spring premiere.
Now that they found Melissa (January Jones) it still seems like she is lost. Erica (Cleopatra Coleman) and Lewis (Kenneth Choi) try to convince Todd (Mel Rodriguez) to lock her up until they know she is back to being her old self. He tells them no and then she goes missing again. Will they find her again this time?
Then there is Gail (Mary Steenburgen) who is still stuck in that elevator in the building next door, and no one is looking for her. She see a Roomba just outside the elevator, and tries to get it to her so she can put a message on it. Will her plan work?
Finally, Tandy (Will Forte) and Carol (Kristen Schaal) go on their long postponed honeymoon! He takes her fishing, but are there any fishes left for them to catch? Then a miracle happens, they catch a fish.
Tonight’s episode is another touching one that makes you both laugh and cry at the same. Plus, we get the return of Will Forte dressed up as a dinosaur and that is the best thing we’ve seen on television all season long.
One of the things that we are thankful this year is that Fox decided to merge the animated world with a live-action one on Son of Zorn. Tonight at 8:30p on Fox, it is Thanksgiving and Zorn wants to spend it with his son (Johnny Pemberton), his ex-wife (Cheryl Hines) and her fiance’ (Tim Meadows). Only problem his ex-mother in law is also coming for dinner and she hates him. Edie tells Zorn to stay home, but he doesn’t listen. He accidentally serves his monster in law a poisonous cake and she dies. How he is going to get himself out of this one? You have to see it to believe it.
And you thought that Thanksgiving dinner was crazy.
Then at 9:30p, The Last Man on Earth reminds us, it as much about heart as it is humor.
Phil Miller (Will Forte) finds out that today is Lewis’ (Kenneth Choi) anniversary and Tandy wants to take him to Seattle to find out if maybe his husband survived the Virus. Lewis obviously doesn’t want to go with him, but Miller has his ways. The two drive all the way to Lewis’ house. Will he get a surprise when he gets there? Will the two enemies finally become friends after this road trip alone?
Back at their new digs, Carol (Kristen Schaal) asks Gail (Mary Steenburgen) to be her baby’s grandmother and she refuses. Since Carol is just like her husband, she has her way of convincing people to do what she wants. Then when Carol asks Gail to sign adoption papers to make it official, She refuses and that causes Carol to cry uncontrollably. Gail has her reasons and they will break your heart.
Tonight’s episode is the perfect mix of laughs and tears and no show does it better than The Last Man on Earth.
Thank you Will Forte this gem!
