  “I’m sorry I don’t know more about you!” Ellie Kemper says, baring her perfect teeth in a broad smile as we wrap up our lunch at Little Dom’s, an Italian place near her part-time home in Los Angeles. “That’ll be next time.” But after talking for nearly two hours over bread, salad, and piping hot arancini, she does know about me, because she asked—about where I live, my family, my dog, how I got into ...

As expected, once Hillary Clinton announced her candidacy for President, there was a barrage of sexist trolls waiting to make his or her two cents known. It is possible to have a critical discussion about Hillary Clinton without bringing her gender into it. Truly!  Funny or Die released a hilarious video mocking the idiotic comments that some people are making. Our personal favorites are: “Are men allowed to vote for a female president?” and ...

  Strangers With Candy aired on Comedy Central for an exhilarating but brief bout at the turn of the millennium. The show was your typical high school melodrama, only starlet Amy Sedaris played a 46 year old recovered drug addict returning to school as a freshman. Sedaris intoxicated us as Jerri Blank with her fluttering lazy eye, underbite, turtleneck, and “fatty suit” induced F.U.P.A. She co-created and starred in the show alongside Paul Dinello ...

The New York City comedy scene is kind of a fluky bandwagon. There is an overwhelming amount of access to amazing standup and improv shows, but embarrassing and off-putting comedy acts are still a dime a dozen. It’s kind of impossible to know for sure if a show is a worthwhile investment, but it’s also usually cheaper than buying a movie ticket. To the theater, then! Two shows particular have caught our eye—and our funny-bone—recently, and ... Read More
You’re probably most familiar with Aasif Mandvi from his work as The Daily Show’s “Senior Foreign-Looking Correspondent,” “Senior Muslim Correspondent,” and “Senior Brown Correspondent.” On that show, he’s managed to get a GOP chair to admit he’s a bigot (the man later resigned),make a Fox commentator look a fool, and all while maintaining a steely—and hilarious—composure. Given his mad ... Read More
