  Though he's one of the leading critics of conservative politicians, comedy news anchor Stephen Colbert is a devout Catholic--and he "loves his Church, warts and all." This past Friday, Colbert met with the Archbishop of New York, Cardinal Timothy Dolan, to engage in a dialogue on “Humor, Joy, and the Spiritual Life" at Fordham University.

Werner often wavers between hitting and not hitting her notes, which adds tension to the already deliciously strained music. The single “#1 in Heaven” is the first track on the album, but it’s by no means the only draw....
You should watch this hilarious promo for actress/director/producer Penny Marshall’s new (and very real) memoir, My Mother Was Nuts--but don't blame us if you break a rib laughing. Fred Armisen dresses in drag to play the amazing Ms. Marshall (who we interview in the upcoming issue of BUST!). This isn’t the first time Fred and Penny have teamed up to make us giggle. Marshall guest-starred in the second season of Portlandia, which Armisen co-created and co-stars in with riot grrrl legend Carrie Brownstein. In this episode, Penny played...
