The Saw movies used to be a tradition every Halloween season. A new sequel would roll around every October, to the point where they adopted the somewhat nonsensical tagline “If it’s Halloween, it must be Saw!” The new Saw reboot, from the twisted mind of Chris Rock, was originally set for an October release date as well – October 23, 2020. But now the latest deathtrap-laden entry has been bumped up a few months, to May 2020. There’s never a wrong time for horror as far as I’m concerned, but dropping Saw in the summertime seems…odd.

Chris Rock‘s Saw reboot just got a heck of a lot cooler. Samuel L. Jackson has officially joined the cast of the new film, taking on the role of Rock’s father. The new Saw comes courtesy of an original idea by Rock, and while plot details are slim, there’s a good bet killer booby traps will be involved in some capacity. And if we get really lucky, Samuel L. Jackson will say the f-word. Read More »
The Saw movies always ended with a big twist, but here’s a real-life twist I don’t think anyone saw coming.

Rock came up with the idea for the film himself, and despite his presence, this isn’t going to be a comedy. Instead, the actor has cooked up something “really intense and twisted.”

After 24 years, Adam Sandler returned to Saturday Night Live to host the late night sketch series for the first time ever.

Plus, there were plenty of fun cameos by familiar faces of the past, as well as the perfect cameo from musical guest Shawn Mendes.
So let’s break down the best and worst sketches from the Adam Sandler hosted Saturday Night Live. Read More »
Fargo is not the type of show where you can take any season for granted. Even if there is a new season – which is not a guarantee because FX and creator Noah Hawley approach each one as a miniseries – each season has a new story and new cast. Today, FX announced a fourth season of the series and its star.
Fargo season 4 will star Chris Rock and will be set in Kansas City, Missouri in the 1950s.

Ever since Adam Sandler and Chris Rock starred together on Saturday Night Live in the ’90s, Rock has been a constant fixture in Sandler’s progressively crass repertoire — from The Longest Yard, to Grown-Ups and Grown-Ups 2.

Over Super Bowl weekend, Netflix released a mysterious teaser trailer that just featured a bunch of tambourines being played. No one was really sure what it was all about, but today we got our answer, and the payoff is coming much sooner than you think.
Chris Rock‘s first Netflix stand-up special is making a surprise debut tomorrow, on Valentine’s Day. The special in question is called Tamborine, which is the less conventional spelling for the musical instrument, but maybe there’s a reason for that. The comedian posted the same video that debuted over a week ago, but this time with his name and the title of the special appearing at the end along with the release date.

As Netflix has started to increase their library of stand-up specials, we haven’t been shy about calling the streaming service the new king of stand-up comedy. While HBO was once the prime destination for exclusive, high quality stand-up acts, they haven’t been as dedicated to the cause in recent years. The cable subscription service still has a fantastic library of stand-up available through HBO GO, and every now and then they come out with a great new special (Pete Holmes being the most recent example), but Netflix has been locking down some of the biggest names in the business for exclusive deals, and that’s just the beginning.
And here we are: there will be new 2017 Netflix stand-up specials arriving every single week. Let’s dive into the growing Netflix stand-up comedy library below.
