Under a Rock with Tig Notaro

Tig Notaro has been in show business for years, touring the country as a stand-up comedian, appearing in shows like Community, Transparent, Fresh Off the Boat, The Office, Bob’s Burgers, and most recently Star Trek Discovery. She’s also appeared in movies such as In a World…, Walk of Shame and Instant Family. But despite all her time spent in the film and TV industry, she’s still woefully clueless when it comes to pop culture. That’s where her new Funny or Die series comes into play.

Tig Notaro is hosting a new show called Under a Rock where she’ll interview celebrities that she doesn’t recognize or know of at all. But she’ll hopefully figure out who they are with a series of clues and questions. The first guest in the inaugural episode is Dawson’s Creek heartthrob James Van Der Beek, and as you’ll quickly see, Tig Notaro isn’t doing a bit at all. She legitimately has no idea who he is. Watch and enjoy. Read More »

Star Trek Beyond Review

Alex Kurtzman is currently settling into his new job as the showrunner of Star Trek: Discovery, but there are still a lot of questions about what’s happening with the future of the Trek franchise on the big screen. Star Trek 4 (or whatever it’s going to be called) is said to be a time-travel story that brings Chris Hemsworth back into the mix with the reboot cast, but now we’re hearing that those same actors will appear in the Star Trek film that’s being developed by Quentin Tarantino. What is going on here?

Meanwhile, CBS All Access is beaming Star Trek: Discovery down to this year’s San Diego Comic-Con International. The series will have a big presence at the 2018 convention, including a Hall H panel that will be moderated by Tig Notaro, the famed actress/comedian who will appear in a guest starring role during the show’s upcoming second season. Learn about all of the latest Star Trek: Discovery Comic-Con details below. Read More »
