    Typically, when someone in the public eye lists a television comedienne as one of their life’s inspirations, you expect them to be a famous comedic actress, not the first lady of the United States. But Michelle Obama continues to break the FLOTUS mold in her most recent interview with Variety.

    AUSTIN — If Friday’s comedians at Fun Fun Fun Fest contended with the low lows of celebrity and popular culture, Saturday’s theme might as well have been “Damn the man, save the Empire.” Politics, politics, and more politics. W. Kamau Bell’s set, for example, offered an appealing blend of his personal experiences and political critique that had the audience at once laughing and thinking carefully about how race works in

    Stephen Colbert, Jon Stewart Midterm Election coverage last night end of an era

    For many, last night was a mix of emotions. For some it was a day to proudly cast a vote, making their voices heard and fulfilling an age-old civic duty. For those opposed, it was a day to protest through inaction, decrying what they see as a faulty system. For the apathetic and possibly comedy-inclined, it was a day to eat Funyuns, try to figure out that whole “Alex from

    Opening with the Boston Marathon bombing, Chris Rock delivered a Saturday Night Live monologue unlike the light-hearted fare offered by most SNL hosts.

Rock could and should joke about whatever he wants, but it would be preferable if

    ISIS ridiculed by Middle Eastern sketch comedy…are these the bravest comedians ever? (Videos)

    When you think of some of the best line-crossing, politically incorrect comedians in America, your mind likely travels to the likes of Bill Burr, Doug Stanhope or Jim Norton. And while they continuously push boundaries at the peril of losing an audience, I’d submit that their lives are rarely in danger because of their comedy. But there’s a group of Middle Eastern comedians whose lives are very much in danger—and

    Eddie Izzard ‘Force Majeure’ Interview: ‘The Melting Pot can save the World’

    On the surface, Eddie Izzard and Arnold Schwarzenegger don’t seem to have much in common. Izzard is hilarious; Schwarzenegger isn’t funny (on purpose, at least). Izzard is a slight dude – barely 5’8” – who cross-dresses and wears lipstick while Schwarzenegger stands 6’2” and is the old-fashioned archetypal man’s man. But Izzard, an iconic comedian and one of the world’s most delightfully strange artists, admires the former Mr. Universe’s approach
