• Showtime greenlights second Larry Wilmore comedy special

    In August, Showtime aired Daily Show correspondent Larry Wilmore’s first ever comedy special, but it had a twist. Instead of delivering an hour of stand-up, Race, Religion & Sex In Utah found the longtime writer and producer on location in the unofficial Mormon capital of the country, Salt Lake City, hosting a town hall-type event. And apparently it was a success, because Wilmore will host a second special for Showtime,

    Barack Obama ‘Fire Sale’ debate parody hasn’t gone viral, but it should (Video)

    Even the most ardent Barack Obama supporters have agreed that perhaps the first presidential debate, which went down in Denver this past Wednesday, was not one of our President’s best moments in his otherwise impressive history of oratory success.

    The leaked footage of Mitt Romney calling 47 percent of Americans (aka Obama supporters) freeloading bums looking for government handouts in every aspect of their lives (we’re paraphrasing, but only slightly) has dominated political headlines the last few days. When asked about his comments and whether he regrets saying these things at the $50,000-a-plate campaign fundraiser, Romney admitted that perhaps he could’ve been more eloquent.
