The conversation surrounding what is or isn’t “over the line” in comedy isn’t new. More recently, the conversation has shifted from young comedians fighting for freedom of speech to older comedians decrying political correctness. The latest controversial jokes from Felix “Pewdiepie” Kjellberg sit at the crossroads of…
After nearly 18 months of waiting, Comedy Central’s brilliant and SEO-unfriendly Review will be returning for its third and final season on March 16. For the uninitiated, the show (my favorite TV comedy after Veep) follows a man named Forrest MacNeil (played by Andy Daly, one of the show’s co-creators) as he “reviews”…
Yesterday on TMZ live, Ann Coulter blamed her instantly legendary bombing at The Comedy Central Roast of Rob Lowe on editing. But Coulter’s set was so horribly unfunny and incompetently delivered that her excuse reads like more of the same truth-bending she often calls on to support her political arguments.
On the final (like, ever) episode of The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore, our old pal Jon Stewart stopped by to wish Wilmore well and tell him what a great job he’s done, like good dads do.
My late-night father Larry Wilmore addressed the unfortunate cancellation of The Nightly Show on Monday night’s episode, joking that this means America is cured and “racism is solved.”
Nikki Glaser’s Comedy Central show Not Safe usually focuses on the sexual exploits people are shy to talk about openly, but on Tuesday, she dedicated a segment to the subject most universities don’t want to admit is event happening: campus rape.
Thursday evening marked the inimitable, upsettingly talented Jessica Williams’ last episode of The Daily Show before leaving to start work on her own show for Comedy Central. I’m not sure what caliber send-off would have satisfied me, but this wasn’t it! Maybe I love too deeply?
Jessica Williams is done at The Daily Show; her last episode will be Thursday. But don’t worry, she isn’t going far: she’s got a deal to develop her own show at Comedy Central.
R&B songs make me want to immediately have sex; they also make me forget that some sex is not perpetrated by oiled-up R&B singers who can effortlessly lift up my weighty body and pleasurably tie it in a bow. Some sex bad. Nikki Glaser knows this.
As the opening scene of the third season opener hinted at when it was leaked a day before Broad City’s February 17 premiere, “Two Chainz” serves as a perfect reentry to the frenzied universe of Ilana and Abbi. The first scene of the show’s third season features a split-screened montage that never leaves the confines…
Broad City’s Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson collaborated with Xbox to promote their upcoming third season and the new Rise of the Tomb Raider game in a parody video. The two do their best impressions of Lara Croft as they make their way up a snowy mountain to their destination, fighting both an avalanche and an…
Trevor Noah did solidly swell in his debut as host of The Daily Show on Monday night. As with anyone inheriting a TV show for the first time, there were moderate levels of awkwardness, nervous adjustment and self-awareness. Appropriately, though, Noah started by extending gratitude to his predecessor, who bequeathed…
Hannibal Buress successfully annoyed a group of PETA protesters by asking them questions about their vegan lifestyle and the joys of meat-eating.
There are many men out there who, despite having spent their lives in the company of women, still get squeamish, annoyed, or dismissive when it comes to talking about periods. If you happen to be one of these gentleman, please sit down. Key and Peele have a message for you.
Hannibal Buress’ new weekly Comedy Central series Why? premiered on Wednesday night and featured a bit where the host comes face to face with a trash-talking Twitter troll with the handle @NotAFannibal.
It takes two or more people to participate in a conversation, but sometimes that conversation isn’t worth listening to that deeply, right?
Why is there even a debate over whether the Confederate Flag should be removed in South Carolina? Larry Wilmore explored this question on Monday’s edition of The Nightly Show, calling the flag a blatant “symbol of oppression and intimidation.”
Jon Stewart scrapped whatever plans he had for the Daily Show last night and devoted a pretty stunning two full segments to railing about the mass shooting in Charleston, South Carolina.
Women fight with tears and emotion, as we all know, and men would do well to learn a thing or two about this intricate style of battle. In this instructional skit from Tuesday night’s edition of Inside Amy Schumer, the host trains dudes on how to deal with the “ancient art of Female Emotional Combat.”
On last night’s episode of Inside Amy Schumer, Bill Cosby was finally taken to court—the “court of public opinion,” that is. Luckily for Cosby, he had the best defense in the business.
