In just a few days, Star Wars: The Force Awakens will reunite Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, and Carrie Fisher on the big screen for the first time since 1983’s Return of the Jedi. But this weekend also marks the premiere of Sisters, which will feature Amy Poehler and Tina Fey in a movie together for the first time since… 2013’s Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues?
Okay, so one of those is admittedly a much more momentous occasion than the other. But seeing Fey and Poehler together should still be fun, if somewhat less thrilling than space battles and lightsaber duels. And to help drive that point home, they’ve recruited Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer for a weird and funny new promo. It’s not quite a Sisters trailer, and it’s not quite a Broad City ad, but it’s definitely worth checking out if you’re a fan of these four hilarious women. Read More »
When Kroll Show was still on Comedy Central, one of the best recurring segments was a little prank show called Too Much Tuna, featuring Gil Faizon (Nick Kroll) and George St. Geegland (John Mulaney) — the stars of Oh, Hello, another recurring segment on the sketch comedy series. And now these two charismatic Upper West Side artists are bringing their talents Off Broadway.
Mulaney and Kroll have just announced a new Oh, Hello stage show in the form of a new play written by Faizon and St. Geegland called We’re Us, You’re You, Let’s Talk. This sounds like it could be one of the greatest events of our time. Read More »
There has been a handful of video games based on the foul-mouthed animated series South Park from Comedy Central, and most of them are pretty terrible. There was a first-person shooter for the Nintendo 64 at the height of the show’s early controversial popularity, a racing game called South Park Rally and some mess of a game called South Park: Chef’s Luv Shack.
Thankfully, they’ve gotten better with the most recent release of South Park: The Stick of Truth; maybe that run will continue with the forthcoming sequel called South Park: The Fractured But Whole. (Get it?) But did you know there was another game in the works in the early 2000s that never saw the light of day? See footage from this unreleased South Park video game below! Read More »

Earlier this year, we learned that Jon Stewart would be leaving Comedy Central’s long-running news satire program The Daily Show. Comedy Central ran the gamut of talented comedians to replace Stewart on the show, including names like Chris Rock and Amy Poehler, before they picked correspondent Trevor Noah to take the gig.
However, one name that we didn’t hear about officially as a candidate was Amy Schumer, the comedienne who has skyrocketed to fame over the past few years thanks to her stellar sketch comedy show Inside Amy Schumer. It turns out Schumer was offered the job, but she actually ended up turning it down. Find out why Amy Schumer turned down The Daily Show after the jump! Read More »

Adam Sandler and Bob Barker‘s fight in the 1996 comedy Happy Gilmore is one of the most memorable movies scenes of that decade. It’s crazy, out of the box and completely hilarious. Even people who don’t like the early Sandler film can appreciate the entertainment value in seeing the long time game show host kicking the crap out of Sandler. Maybe even more so.
Now, almost twenty years later, the duo are at it again. Barker and Sandler did a video to promote autism awareness for Comedy Central’s Night of Too Many Stars event, which airs Sunday night. Once again though, things got out of hand. It’s pretty funny. Check out the 2015 Happy Gilmore fight below. Read More »
