One Lump of Stupid or Two? We present Monty Python because, well, Lord Damp Nut’s exhibit A for voting while dead isn’t quite dead yet: Accusations of voter fraud continue to be in the headlines after last week’s general election, including the claims that people who are dead voted. 11Alive confirmed that two of the four Georgia voters the president’s campaign accused of fraudulently voting while “dead” are alive.

Michelle Wolf mentions the current president of the United States just once in her new Netflix special Joke Show.

Why Michelle Wolf Quit Telling Trump Jokes After the White House Correspondents’ Dinner—and Got Even Funnier

The punchline comes near the end of her masterful hour-long set—and she doesn’t say his name. It’s been almost two years since Wolf broke into the stand-up mainstream with Nice Lady on HBO (deemed the best special of 2017 by this website) and just about a year and a half since she broke Washington, D.C., with her scathing White House Correspondents’ Dinner speech. After Wolf joked that she loved Sarah Huckabee Sanders “as Aunt Lydia in The Handmaid’s Tale” and complimented her “resourceful” approach to makeup by saying, “She burns facts, and then she uses that ash to create a perfect smokey eye,” prominent media figures on both sides of the partisan divide denounced her and even the White House Correspondents’ Association tried to distance themselves from her. They haven’t invited a comedian back since. “It’s probably been the best year of my life,” Wolf says. I thought, good. RIP, TIM CONWAY.

Tim Conway, one of the truly great comics, has left us.

RIP, TIM CONWAY

The world seems a little duller, suddenly. He was 85. There is probably no finer comic pairing that Tim Conway and Harvey Korman on the Carol Burnett Show, and if there is, I would love to know about it. Spend some time googling Conway today and have a laugh or two (or two hundred); it really is the best tribute you can make, and it’s the one he would want.

Peter and Nance, Portlandia’s resident slaves to yuppiedom, are going to have some new experiences on the eighth and final season of IFC’s hit sketch show.

Watch Portlandia’s Yuppies Plan the Perfect Breakfast 12 Hours Early

In one scene, the husband and wife decide to optimize their favorite meal of the day, breakfast, by preparing it 12 hours before they wake up, so that everything will be ready to roll as soon as they shoot out of bed. Peter (played by Fred Armisen) practices walking into the room and saying “good morning,” while Nance (played by Carrie Brownstein) preps the oatmeal and French press coffee. “I feel like a kid in a candy store,” she says as she’s setting up the kitchen in the dead of night. The duo’s plan ultimately works so well, that Peter and Nance decide to prolong the joy as much as possible by eating in slow motion.

How To Create NPR’s Propaganda – As Seen In a Hit Piece Against Me. By Lee Camp Source: Naked Capitalism I never thought I’d be the target of an NPR attack piece.

How To Create NPR’s Propaganda – As Seen In a Hit Piece Against Me

Through my twenties I even looked to NPR as an outlet full of good, progressive, thoughtful reporting – You know, the soothing voices occasionally interrupted by music no one really listens to but that sounds good between soft-spoken ivy league journalists over the age of 50. Everything about NPR subtly reinforced the idea, “Everything is fine.

Melissa McCarthy Plays an Amateur Chef in the Comedy ‘Cook-Off!’ - Eater. Years before she became a box office titan and an Emmy award-winning Sean Spicer impersonator, Melissa McCarthy filmed a little indie comedy called Cook-Off!

Melissa McCarthy Plays an Amateur Chef in the Comedy ‘Cook-Off!’ - Eater

About a bunch of kitchen novices who enter a culinary competition. And now, ten years after making its debut at the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival, this quirky little comedy is finally getting a limited theatrical release. In the new trailer for this Christopher Guest-style mockumentary, McCarthy plays a culinary hopeful with a special yam recipe, who enters the competition alongside similarly eccentric characters, including a woman with a lady bug obsession, a dopey dude in a trucker hat, and a Broadway musical-loving duo. It looks sort of like Best in Show, but with food instead of dogs. How Bullwinkle Taught Kids Sophisticated Political Satire. “Mr.

How Bullwinkle Taught Kids Sophisticated Political Satire

Chairman, I am against all foreign aid, especially to places like Hawaii and Alaska,” says Senator Fussmussen from the floor of a cartoon Senate in 1962. In the visitors’ gallery, Russian agents Boris Badenov and Natasha Fatale are deciding whether to use their secret “Goof Gas” gun to turn the Congress stupid, as they did to all the rocket scientists and professors in the last episode of “Bullwinkle.” Another senator wants to raise taxes on everyone under the age of 67. He, of course, is 68. Yet a third stands up to demand, “We’ve got to get the government out of government!” Theconversation. White nationalists and neo-Nazis are having their moment.

theconversation

Former Ku Klux Klan Imperial Wizard David Duke is back, yet again, in the media spotlight, while newer figures such as white supremacist Richard Spencer and Christopher Cantwell are broadcasting their views via social media feeds and niche internet channels. Many Americans are wondering if this resurgent movement should be ignored, feared or fought. What, exactly, is the best antidote for neo-Nazism? What about laughter? While the August 12 violence in Charlottesville, Virginia was no joke, the images of armor-clad, tiki-torch-wielding white nationalists did give fodder to late-night talk show hosts and editorial cartoonists.

In a different age, another ascendant white supremacist – Adolf Hitler – used a combination of garbled ideas, stagy phrasing and arch gestures to bewitch much of his nation, even as the rest of the world looked on in disbelief and terror. James Corden Tortures Gordon Ramsay With 'Friends' Theme Song. Chelsea Handler: ‘You Can Be a Bitch and Be Wonderful’ Chelsea Handler is crying.

Chelsea Handler: ‘You Can Be a Bitch and Be Wonderful’

Tucked in the back corner of the restaurant at New York’s Mark Hotel, Handler is dabbing away her tears when a waitress with perhaps the most awkward timing in serving history approaches. She stands dumbstruck at the scene she just walked up to. Chelsea Handler's Netflix Show Is a War on ‘Stupidity’ We’ve had late-night talk shows that mock, satirize, and tell.

Chelsea Handler's Netflix Show Is a War on ‘Stupidity’

We’ve had late-night talk shows that opine and even teach. Chelsea Handler’s new Netflix talk show, Chelsea, sure does all that. But it does something that it sets it apart from the crowded field of colleagues and competitors. It questions. Launching with three episodes every Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday this week, and continuing with that schedule, Chelsea is Netflix’s first late-night talk show—or talk show of the late-night variety. There are many who have been perplexed by the idea of a regular talk show on a streaming service, where there are no schedules or time slots and shows are meant to be binged en masse, and how that would work. Chelsea Handler’s Twitter Feed Has Officially Gone Off the Rails.

Chelsea Handler is in the middle of a political awakening. And this week, it’s not going very well. With her Netflix talk show Chelsea, now in its second season, the comedian has made a conscious choice to pivot away from the vapid, celebrity gossip that dominated her long-running Chelsea Lately show on E! And towards the type of specifically anti-Trump political humor that has helped buoy other late-night hosts like Stephen Colbert this past year.

Siyi Chen: The World Makes Fun Of Trump. When did you first fall in love with Kate McKinnon? Photo by VALERIE MACON/AFP/Getty Images According to critics, Kate McKinnon is the breakout star of Ghostbusters. But that’s not news to anyone who’s seen an episode of Saturday Night Live over the past four years (or any of McKinnon’s earlier work on the web series Vag Magazine or Logo’s Big Gay Sketch Show).

McKinnon consistently acts circles around her costars, with energy, goofiness, charisma, and dimples that make her eminently crushable, at least according to most people who work at Slate. (The people who vote on Emmy nominations think she’s pretty great, too.) When was the precise moment at which McKinnon stole your heart? June Thomas: I first discovered Kate McKinnon in December 2013, when she channeled Billie Jean King in a Saturday Night Live “Weekend Update” segment pegged to the Sochi Olympics.

L.V. Bad Lip Reading Of First Presidential Debate Is Quite A Mouthful. 25 Funniest, Sickest 'Rob Lowe Roast' Burns - Rolling Stone. He's made friends, enemies, some memorable Eighties movies, loads of Tiger Beat covers, a didn't-see-that-coming comedic comeback and a few notorious sex tapes — and now, Rob Lowe can say that he's truly arrived, because Comedy Central has roasted him. Joining the ranks of Hugh Hefner, Justin Bieber, Flavor Flav and this guy, the former Brat Pack heartthrob willingly stepped up on the dais with a bullseye on his back, as everyone from roastmaster Jeffrey Ross (dressed as Purple Rain-era Prince) to Jewel (?!?)

Laid into him with the most offensive zingers imaginable. And as is the custom with these take-no-prisoner events, everyone one onstage was fair game. Folks made jaw-dropping cracks about Pete Davidson's dad dying on 9/11, the size of Peyton Manning's head and host David Spade's career choices. As for Ann Coulter, the conservative blowhard with the pained smile and a new book to promote — let's just say the phrase "human piñata" comes to mind. 25. 24.

I'm a Good Person - Rachel Bloom (Explicit) - Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. Kate Beckinsale Pulled an Epic Prank. Who knew Kate Beckinsale pulled the prank to end all pranks? On The Graham Norton Show, the actress explained that inspiration struck when she was in a hotel room with a male companion who had the bad luck of falling asleep before her.

And, as she says, closing your eyes when Kate Beckinsale is nearby will never end well. Feeling uninspired by some of her recent sleep prank antics like gluing beards on people and drawing tattoos, Beckinsale said, "I was still after the rush. " Spacey & Fallon: MasterClass Junior. Here's Where To Watch All 403 Episodes Of 'The Joy Of Painting' With Bob Ross. Huffingtonpost. Huffingtonpost. Watch George Carlin and Bill Hicks Call Bullshit on the American Dream. People knew early on that George Carlin was an anti-establishment comic. He hosted the very first broadcast of Saturday Night Live and turned what could have been a family-friendly monologue into a searing indictment of American culture.

Bill Hicks followed in the same tradition, eschewing the easy laugh in order to rip apart our national myths and expose the often sickening charade of democracy we see in popular culture and mainstream media. Between these two, we get what is undoubtedly the most important social satire since Mark Twain. 89 percent of the American public distrusts the government. Unfortunately, much of that distrust is either faked or suppressed. Top 10 Times David Letterman Made Right-Wingers Look Like Idiots. 'The Daily Show' Looks At The Legend Of 'El Jebe' Jeb Bush. Secrets of the female pickup artist: There’s an art to asking strange men for sex — and not getting shot down. There’s a viral video making the rounds with a very simple, if unusual premise: An attractive woman walks up to men on the street and asks them if they want to have sex with her. It’s a candid camera gag by the prank-happy YouTube comedy channel whatever, and it’s the second time they’ve done this shtick: Two years ago, they had a man proposition 100 women for sex (he was rejected 100 percent of the time) and then had a woman proposition 14 men for sex (she was rejected 50 percent of the time).

This go round, they had the same woman proposition 100 different men and her success rate — if it can be called that, given the circumstances — was a low 30 percent. Despite our cultural bias that men will sleep with anything with a pulse (or, hell, even without), it’s not too surprising that she was rejected by the majority of the guys.

Olive Garden announced last year that it was getting rid of its famous slogan, "When you're here, you're family.

" But the slogan isn't just going into the tagline graveyard -- it has found a new home. Last night, Dave George, the president of Olive Garden, "officially" signed away the slogan to Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. It was an Olive Garden-Fallon love fest, in which all the audience members got free t-shirts with the new slogan and $100 gift cards to the restaurant. The best part of the segment occurs in the last minute, though, when Fallon and The Roots premiere a spot-on Olive Garden parody ad. It's all there -- slightly goofy wardrobe choices, incessant laughter, cheesy dialogue, endless breadsticks and more.
