Earth is in a constant state of disaster. Whether it’s natural or manmade, there’s always something terrible happening around the world, and it’s about time somebody did something about it. Even heaven thinks there needs to be some kind of interference in the new TBS comedy series Miracle Workers, but God (Steve Buscemi) just doesn’t seem to be up to the task. So it’s up to an angel (Daniel Radcliffe) named Craig, whose job it is to answer prayers, to take matters into his own hands in an effort to save Earth.
Find out how that goes down the full Miracle Workers trailer that was just released by TBS. Read More »
Though they might not be huge hits in the ratings department, TBS has curated some fantastic comedies with incredible talent in recent years. Along with their consistently great late night presence featuring Conan O’Brien and Samantha Bee, they’ve also had outstanding shows like Detour, Wrecked, Search Party, Angie Tribeca, and The Final Space. But their latest offering looks like it takes things to another level.
Miracle Workers is a new series on TBS, and it’s certainly sacrilegious. The show focuses on Steve Buscemi as God, and he has a plan to destroy the Earth, but two angels from the offices of Heaven Inc. tried to convince him otherwise. It just so happens that one of those angels is Harry Potter franchise star Daniel Radcliffe. How is this a TBS series?! Read More »
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.
But as the two reteam in The Week Of for Sandler’s last movie in his original four-film Netflix deal, they seem to pull off a miracle: a genuinely charming movie.

Anyone who’s seen HBO’s Veep, the 2009 film In The Loop, or the British TV series The Thick of It knows that writer/director Armando Iannucci has a biting and unique take on political comedy. His characters have a way of speaking that could be referred to as melodiously offensive, and it looks like he’s done it again with The Death of Stalin, which is only his second feature film. The movie earned rave reviews earlier this month at the Toronto International Film Festival, and now a new trailer has arrived to show us his caustic imagining of the fall of one of the world’s most brutal dictatorships.

If you’ve ever watched Veep or The Thick of It and wished you could see them done in a post-World War II Soviet Union, you’re in luck. Armando Iannucci, creator of the above foul-mouthed political comedies and director of The Thick of It’s film spin-off In the Loop, is bringing that same brand of crass comedy to Russia, with love.
The Death of Stalin follows what happens after, well, the death of Joseph Stalin in 1953 and the havoc it wreaks upon his hapless generals and advisers. It has Jeffrey Tambor bumbling around in a bad dark wig. What else do you need?

It’s a familiar joke that the baby is the real head of the household. Family life revolves around the whims of its youngest, most unpredictable member, and all the attention in the room immediately goes to him or her. But what if the baby weren’t just a metaphorical boss? What if the baby were a real boss, with a tiny business suit and a mean coffee addiction and the voice of Alec Baldwin and everything?
That’s the premise of The Boss Baby, the new animated comedy from DreamWorks. Baldwin voices a bratty little baby whose arrival upends the life of his older brother, 7-year-old Tim. Sadly, this is not an adaptation of Beck Bennett’s hilarious “office boss” recurring sketch from Saturday Night Live. Watch the Boss Baby teaser trailer below. Read More »

But sadly, Louis C.K. has announced that the tenth episode of Horace and Pete, which hit the we earlier this month, would be the end of the series. In an e-mail with fans, the comedian gave a fond farewell and thanks to all who worked on the project and gushed about how happy he was for his fans to receive it with open arms. Find out more about the Horace and Pete ending after the jump. Read More »
