Misery Loves Comedy is one of the films I wish I could have seen at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. It was presented as a special screening, slotted at a very inconvenient time all the way on the top of Main Street at the Egyptian. Thankfully, actor/comedian Kevin Pollak‘s documentary film was sold at Sundance to Tribeca Film, which will allow all of us to see it when it is released on iTunes on April 14th and in limited theaters on April 24th 2015. The documentary features over 60 famous funny people “featured in this hilarious twist on the age-old truth: misery loves company.” Hit the jump to watch the Misery Loves Comedy trailer, and leave your thoughts int he comments below.

Jerry Seinfeld‘s thoughts on Man of Steel might have been the most popular quote from the comedian’s recent Reddit AMA, but the biggest news was the announcement of a mystery reunion with Larry David. David co-created Seinfeld with the comedian and took some of the show’s sensibility — David’s half of it, at least — to HBO with Curb Your Enthusiasm. The pair remain friends, and they collaborated on a massive Seinfeld/Curb crossover a few years back. Seinfeld revealed in the AMA the pair are working on a “big, huge, gigantic” project. The identity of that project has now been revealed. Read More »

Walter White isn’t the only prickly small-screen antihero coming back in the next couple of weeks. Larry David is returning to television for the first time since Curb Your Enthusiasm‘s eighth season ended in 2011 with Clear History, a new movie by HBO.
Technically, David’s Clear History character is entirely separate from his Curb one. For starters, his name here isn’t “Larry David” but Nathan Flomm. For another, Flomm’s a marketing exec who works with Jon Hamm’s character. But the film’s premise — Flomm loses his stake in a startup after a petty argument, only to see the company grow into a billion-dollar corporation — certainly sounds very Curb-y. Watch the new trailer after the jump.

We already know what Larry David‘s new film will be about (a marketing exec who misses out on a lucrative startup) and how it’ll be distributed (on HBO). Now we also know what it’ll be called and who’ll star in it.
According to a new report, the movie’s now going by the name Clear History, and the cast contains a healthy mix of comedians and non-comedians. In addition to David and the previously rumored Jon Hamm and Michael Keaton, the confirmed cast also includes Bill Hader, Danny McBride, Philip Baker Hall, Amy Ryan, Kate Hudson, Eva Mendes, and JB Smoove.

Larry David is indeed making a movie and it will indeed premiere on HBO. This we now know to be 100% true. Greg Mottola is attached to direct, Jon Hamm will likely co-star but, like most projects the creator of Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm is behind, everything else has been very hush hush.
However, now that the film is a go, a 40-page outline of the story had made its way into the wild revealing the major plot thrust of the film. The majority of dialogue will be improvised so it’s likely some things will change but, after the jump, we’ll tell you – in pretty spoilery detail – what Larry David’s HBO film is about. And yes, it sounds like an epic episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm. Read More »
Earlier this Summer, news broke that Larry David was shopping a semi-improvised feature film idea with Greg Mottola at the helm. Fox Searchlight was reportedly interested in distribution.
Now, however, it seems David’s film might not make it to the big screen after all. HBO has apparently swooped in, offered the star of the show Curb Your Enthusiasm a higher budget, and might end up premiering the film on their network. The plot of the film is still under wraps but is believed to feature David, Michael Keaton and Jon Hamm among others. Read more after the jump. Read More »
Jerry Seinfeld has a new show out, but you won’t find it on a network and it’s not in syndication. Seinfeld’s new show – Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee – is online only and is exactly what the title says.
The comedian, famous for his ’90s TV show sharing his name, takes one of his classic cars out, picks up a famous comedian, and gets a cup of coffee. Then the two just converse and discuss whatever comes to their minds. In the first episode, Seinfeld picks up his long-time friend and collaborator Larry David who says that, finally, Seinfeld really has a show about nothing.
The episode was so good that, even at 13 minutes, I didn’t want it to end. Check it out after the jump. Read More »
