Kevin Hart has been a box office draw in comedies for years, and now that Tiffany Haddish has some heat behind her after a star-making turn in Girls Trip, it only makes sense to team these two up for even more big screen shenanigans
Night School finds Hart playing a former grill salesman named Teddy desperate to get his GED so he can finally get a job that makes him feel like he has some self-worth. The only problem is he has the unconventional and obnoxious Tiffany Haddish as his teacher, and she’s not about to let him get away with his usual fast-talking tricks and shortcuts. A new Night School trailer shows off the supporting cast, who actually seem to bring more laughs than Hart and Haddish do. Read More »
There used to be a time when summer was a dead zone when it came to finding good television. But nowadays there’s an overabundance of programming to be found at every turn. Netflix always has something cooking, which means broadcast and cable networks are trying to keep up with great fresh content of their own, and Showtime looks to have something great on their hands.
I’m Dying Up Here is a new one-hour drama series at Showtime that follows an ensemble cast of up and coming comedians in 1970s Los Angeles, when the art of stand-up comedy was seeing a surge in popularity from the stages of comedy clubs to being in front of the curtain on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. A new I’m Dying Up Here trailer showcases even more of the drama and laughs that come from trying to deliver a set that kills, and you can watch it below (but beware of some NSFW language).

There have been plenty of great series on Showtime. However, personally, I’ve never felt compelled to subscribe in order to watch any of them. That might change with the cable network’s new series set in the world of 1970s stand-up comedy.
I’m Dying Up Here follows a group of stand-up comedians (played by Clark Duke, R.J. Cyler, Ari Graynor, and more) hoping to make it big at a time when stand-up comedy was one of the most popular forms of entertainment in the country. Every comedian was hoping to land an agent and end up on Johnny Carson, and if the Tonight Show host shook your hand and welcomed you to sit down, then you had it made.

As you probably know by now, the catalyst for Captain America: Civil War is the introduction of the Sokovia Accords, which demand that The Avengers have some kind of government oversight by the United Nations after their heroic actions have resulted in dozens of deaths around the world.
Now a viral video has arrived in the form of a news broadcast featuring Christine Everhart. If that name sounds familiar, that’s because the character first appeared in Iron Man as a reporter trying to interview Tony Stark in Las Vegas. Leslie Bibb (Talladega Nights) played the character who also ended up in bed with the billionaire, playboy and philanthropist only to later have an awkward encounter with him in Iron Man 2.
