NBC’s Parks and Recreation ended at the exact right time, but that doesn’t mean we don’t miss it now that it’s gone. So if you’re still in mourning, you may find some comfort in the new trailer for My Blind Brother. Sophie Goodhart‘s indie drama stars not one, not two, but three former Pawneeans caught in a love triangle. Nick Kroll, the former Douche, gets to play the nice guy this time, while Adam Scott steps up as the douchey one. The two guys play brothers after the same woman, played by Jenny Slate. Watch the My Blind Brother trailer after the jump.

Playing in 100 locations around the country right now is the sophomore writing/directing effort of comedian turned filmmaker Mike Birbiglia. He made a splash at Sundance a few years ago with the charming, semi-autobiographical Sleepwalk with Me, and now he’s back with a movie called Don’t Think Twice, focusing on a group of tight-knit friends in an improv troupe. The film is in the same vein as Broadcast News and other films from James L. Brooks, just set in the world of improv comedy, and it’s truly a must-see.
Now in an efforts to help promote the movie, producers forced Mike Birbiglia to create a viral video to make more people aware of the movie. Sadly, this resulted in cast members Gillian Jacobs (Community), Keegan-Michael Key (Key and Peele), Kate Micucci (Garfunkel and Oates), Chris Gethard (Broad City), and Tami Sagher (Inside Amy Schumer) all getting the viral video virus. Watch the Don’t Think Twice viral video after the jump. Read More »
A couple days ago, the final episode of the second season of The Jim Gaffigan Show hit TV Land. For those who haven’t been watching, the comedy series was hilarious, almost surprisingly so since it was airing on a channel not known for the best comedies. Plus, sitcoms starring comedians as themselves can be hit or miss, but Jim Gaffigan succeeded in bringing his own brand of humor to television with clever writing from him and his wife Jeannie Gaffigan and a cavalcade of outstanding guest stars. But sadly, the show is coming to an end after just two seasons. Find out why after the jump. Read More »

I’ve previously written about how much I enjoyed Klown Forever, the very good and very funny follow-up to 2010’s Klown (which just so happens to be one of the funniest and most offensive movies ever made). Now, we’re pleased to premiere this new clip from director Mikkel Nørgaard‘s sequel, which is set to arrive in limited theatrical release and on VOD next month from Drafthouse Films.

This summer may have been kind of a stinker movie-wise, but TV-wise there’s been a lot to love. Just in the past few weeks we’ve been obsessing over HBO’s The Night Of and USA’s Mr. Robot, sampling Netflix’s The Get Down and catching upon their Stranger Things and BoJack Horseman. And next week brings the season 3 premiere of FXX’s You’re the Worst, to close out the summer and carry us into fall.
When You’re the Worst first premiered in 2014, it looked like another caustic hangout sitcom a la It’s Always Sunny. But it quickly revealed itself to be something richer and more surprising, honestly grappling with serious material like PTSD and depression without losing its twisted sense of humor. Season 3 promises to pick off right where season 2 left off, which is to say with our four deeply imperfect heroes as hilariously lost as ever. Oh, and it also brings in some promising new characters like Justina, a therapist played by Orange Is the New Black‘s Samira Wiley. Watch the You’re the Worst season 3 trailer below. Read More »
For a few years now, writer-director Mike Judge and Terry Crews have talked about doing more with Idiocracy‘s President Camacho. Of course fans of the 2006 cult comedy are more than happy to see Crews return to the role, and we’ve seen him do so in a few Funny or Die videos. Crews and Judge were at one point discussing future opportunities for Camacho with Fox, and earlier this summer it was reported they were working on campaign ads for Camacho. But sadly, Fox has pulled the plug on the whole project.
Below, learn more about the cancelled President Camacho Ads.
