• The Occasional gives you reason to fall in love with Funny Or Die all over again

    The only reason I buy magazines anymore is so that I can cut out pictures of celebrity bodies and paste my head on them for my inspiration board. So, when I heard Funny or Die had an iPad magazine called The Occasional, I didn’t think it would be of any use to me. Often, when I hear about an iPad magazine, I download it and find out it’s a shortened

    Jason Segel will have nothing to do with a Muppets movie sequel

    Recently, we heard that writer Nicholas Stoller and director James Bobin were officially moving forward on a sequel to last year’s Muppets, and though we knew Jason Segel (the man behind the original flick) was not going to write it, there were assumptions that he would be involved. But now we learn that Segel will not be involved in any official capacity. “It’s true but it’s totally amicable. My goal

    At 85 years old, iconic Don Rickles isn’t just scooting by on his untouchable comedian status. He’s keeping up with the times just fine. He’s just released his first mobile app for iPhones and Androids, called Mr. Warmth (his nickname). The $2.99 application is full of classic Rickles quips– perfect for fans of the comedian’s famous insult style. I downloaded Mr. Warmth (because I’m a dedicated comedy reporter, everybody!) and

    Nick Offerman and friends know a lot about reproductive rights (Video)

    I recognize that, as a woman, my brain is simply too small to comprehend science. Thank god for this Funny or Die video starring Judd Nelson, Tim Meadows, Kurtwood Smith, Corey Stoll, Brian Flaherty and the delicious Nick Offerman. This short, titled “Women’s Health Experts Speak Out”) really highlights the reason that late middle-aged men are the true experts when it comes to lady-parts and contraception. Using great quotes from

    Review: Tim & Eric flick delivers, but you might want to wait for its theatrical release

    First things first: If you don’t traditionally like Tim & Eric’s 11-minute episodes on Adult Swim, then their new film isn’t for you. If you’ve ever watched the first five minutes of one of their episodes, cringed and changed the channel, then their new film isn’t worth your money. If you can only watch their show when under the influence and with friends, I suggest this is how you go

    30 Rock recap: Double dose of new episodes leaves us unsatisfied

    After such a rough year with so little Lemon in it, I’m sure we were all happy to find that this week we were given two brand new episodes of 30 Rock. When I say that I was happy, I am really understating it. I screamed with excitement like a little girl when I realized we were going to get to see a full hour. Sadly, I felt a bit

    30 Rock recap: Liz Lemon is not a crack whore, Jack’s not all-knowing, dancing and more!

    Oh my crap, you guys – 30 Rock came back and I have a reason to live again! Thank God! I was nervous about this episode because of all the build-up. I mean, what if it wasn’t hilarious? What if I ended up being less turned on by Alec Baldwin now that he’s looking a bit thinner? Not true. There was enough Frank and Lutz meat to go around. This

    Well, my dears, we have been given a 30 Rock sneak peek from the heavens above. (You know it’s returning to NBC on Jan. 12 at 8 pm ET, right?) And oh! What a peek it is. First, we find out that Liz has a super-hot boyfriend (played by James Marsden. Meow.) who makes her hot dogs, which basically means he’s perfect. But for some reason Jack does not like

    You don’t have to like Nickelback to appreciate the video they just made for Funny or Die. In it, the band (with the help of Paul Scheer) tries to figure out why everyone in Detroit is so pissed off about their upcoming performance at the Lions game on Thanksgiving.
