    Bill Murray’s hologram is just like us, you guys (Video)

    Two Bill Murrays made an appearance on Late Show with David Letterman last night: Murray in the flesh and Murray as a hologram. I have no idea how holograms work, except for those shiny “holographic” Pokemon trading cards I got as a kid, but I gotta say, this was way more impressive.

    Jim Gaffigan plays Israel; we analyze the hell out of it

    It’s common wisdom that some of the best comedians are outsiders, standing at the fringe of society lobbing critiques inward. But it’s also common wisdom that white, tall, blond, Catholics are not outsiders, at least not in America, at least for another year or two. In fact they’re pretty much the norm. But Jim Gaffigan, the platonic ideal of whiteness itself, has made a career out of proving just how
