I wasn’t planning to write about Gallery1988′s first annual “Is This Thing On” art show as it really has little connection to movies or television (or so I thought… the above piece featuring Judd Apatow mashed-up with the infamous Star Trek Tribbles episode is a fine example of this). The show, co-sponsored by FunnyOrDie, features over 100 artists, each creating pieces that are portraits of their favorite funny people, both beloved comics of yesteryear and emerging superstars.

The Dana Carvey Show is now on Hulu. What’s the big deal? Well, when the sketch comedy show premiered on ABC in the mid ’90s—following a family-safe block of programming—millions were in awe at the stuff it got away with. It was too good to be true, giving SNL an irreverent elbow. When Carvey spoofed President Bill Clinton by whipping out countless flabby breasts to proudly nurse babies and puppies, it was the beginning of the end. Ratings were steady but still used as a scapegoat, and it was axed after eight episodes. Parents and middle school teachers exhaled in unison.
Knowing that Robert Smigel‘s “The Ambiguously Gay Duo” debuted right after Jonathan Taylor Thomas’s stupid girl troubles on Home Improvement remains incredibly surreal and relevant in the current climate.
After the jump is a screen-shot that captures the show’s insane roster of writers: Stephen Colbert, Steve Carell and Charlie Kaufman for starters…
Okay may-be not. But Mike Myers and Dana Carvey reunited as Wayne and Garth for the first time in probably 15 years. The duo appeared in a new Wayne’s World segment on the MTV Movie Awards last night. They counted down the top 10 porno names based on hit movies in 2008. Watch the clip below.
I know Wayne’s World 2 was pretty bad, but watching this makes me wonder why Mike Myers is making even crappier-looking movies (ie The Love Guru) instead of Wayne’s World 3. And besides, what is Dana Carvey doing these days? But that also brings up the question, do kids these days even know who Wayne and Garth are?
