Eddie Murphy is slated to make his triumphant return to stand-up comedy at Netflix sometime in the future, but before that, we’ll see him try his hand at stand-up again for a big charity comedy festival being put together to benefit Feeding America food banks during the coronavirus pandemic.
The Feeding America Comedy Festival is being put together by comedian-turned-media-magnate Byron Allen and his Entertainment Studios banner along with the folks at Funny or Die. The three-hour event will be taking donations while audiences enjoy stand-up sets from some of the biggest names in comedy. Along with Eddie Murphy, the show will include Chris Rock, Kevin Hart, Billy Crystal, Tiffany Haddish, Kenan Thompson, Howie Mandel, Marc Maron, and many more. Read More »
The Goldbergs is currently in the middle of its fifth season, but you might remember that over a year ago we heard about the world of the 1980s-set sitcom expanding with a spin-off that would take us to the 1990s. Unfortunately, that series didn’t get ordered to series, but the pilot was ordered and shot, and fans will get a chance to see it on this season of The Goldbergs.

It may only be June, but it’s going to take some damn good comedy to top the fits of laughter brought upon by Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping. After The Lonely Island trio (Andy Samberg, Akiva Shaffer and Jorma Taccone) made a splash with their digital shorts on Saturday Night Live, it’s amazing it took them this long to put together a mockumentary following the rise and fall of a faux musician in the real world music industry. But for as long as it took, the hilarity delivered by Popstar makes it well worth the wait.

A new international unrated movie trailer for Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story in now online. I know Judd Apatow produced this flick, and he’s on the streak of a lifetime, but so far I’ve had absolutely no interest in seeing this musical comedy, UNTIL NOW. And this is a great example of how a red band trailer that doesn’t go overboard with nudity or swears (although it does have a couple swears), and instead allows the filmmakers to show you what the movie really is like… unlike the watered down unfunny green band advertisements.
Watch the new trailer after the jump.
