• WATCH: When your train announcer has an existential crisis (Exclusive)

    Throughout the course of a day our busy lives usually prevent our minds to stay still for too long, lest we start reflecting on who we really are and what we’re really doing with our lives. But deep down we know those thoughts exist—those thoughts that beg us to remain in our warm beds despite that pesky job, that convince us that staying home and rocking back and forth on our

    What happens when Marc Maron runs out of guests to interview on WTF? (Video)

    Ever since launching his wildly popular podcast WTF in 2009 (that has spawned an IFC show set to premiere May 3), Marc Maron has stuck to a strict two-episode-per-week programming schedule– which means as we write this, episode 380 is now available. That’s a tremendous amount of output. With that said, Los Angeles sketch group Family Sandwich decided to explore the question: What happens when Maron runs out of people

    The revamped In Living Color: Meet the first four cast members (Videos)

    We reported in October of last year that Fox was re-launching groundbreaking sketch comedy series In Living Color, which originally aired on the network from 1990 – 1994. Since that time, Fox and comedy club The Laugh Factory held open auditions to help fill out the new cast. And I use the word “cast” loosely, because really what we’re talking about here is two half-hour special presentations of In Living

    Watch 11 videos from Saturday Night Live’s season premiere with Alec Baldwin

    Last night, Saturday Night Live kicked off its new season with a quality show, overall. If you missed it, fear not. Here’s almost all of the goodies, minus the Radiohead performances, because honestly, I don’t give a shit about them. Enjoy. Clocking in at just over 11 minutes, this cold opening is a tad long, but I have to say the peeps at SNL cover a lot of ground, reviewing

    Watch Pete Holmes break really bad news to Matt McCarthy

    Bedside manner is one of the hardest concepts for doctors to learn, as there is no exact formula, for example, for breaking the news that someone has cancer. Even so, bedside manner might be overrated. Watch comedian Pete Holmes be the best doctor ever for comedian Matt McCarthy in this new webseries from Front Page Films (makers of Kid Farm) if you want your doctor to be hilariously bad at

    Watch Patton Oswalt explode

    Last week, we watched Patton Oswalt get kicked in the balls in his 5 Second Films debut. Shortly after the clip went live, Oswalt warned us that there would be more coming. He totally didn’t lie. Because this morning, another five seconds of Oswalt bliss was bestowed upon all of comedy nerdom. And I’m starting to see a pattern develop. I’m no therapist, but it seems to me Patton is

    Watch Patton Oswalt get kicked in the balls

    In 2005, filmmaker Brian Firenzi had a dream. He would produce and curate films. But they would only run for five seconds each– not including beginning and end titles, of course. And then these films would be uploaded onto the World Wide Web at 5SecondFilms.com. People would watch these films; some people would laugh. Today’s film features Patton Oswalt. Let’s check it out, shall we? After the jump, check out

And, well, it’s a bit of a departure from his long-form, super thorough documentary-like ways.

Certainly, Green Lantern, Superman, Wolverine are getting tired of it, at least, when it comes to Hawkman. In this hilarious video from Frog Island Films, TJ Miller as the Green Lantern tells Cooper Barnes as Hawkman why there won’t be a Hawkman movie. Ironically enough, no matter how viral this video

If you know me — and you don’t — you know that when I start asking rhetorical questions I’m at my most excited. That’s not at all true. What is true, however, is that we’re giving

    Saturday Night Live recap: Justin Timberlake and Lady Gaga

    COLD OPENING Dominique Strauss-Kahn enters jail, and is confronted by two prisoners who are incredibly knowledgable and politics. Strauss-Kahn doesn’t say anything as the two debate- which I suspected might lead to a “I’m French. I don’t speak English” kind of thing- but it never happens. It does, however, end with a prison rape joke. MONOLOGUE Justin explains that he is aware people expect him to sing while hosting the

    Should Jimmy Fallon retire his Charlie Sheen impression?

    In early March, Jimmy Fallon debuted his spot-on impression of Charlie Sheen. Obviously, the timing was right, as this was during the height of Sheen’s public meltdown awesomeness. Since that time, Fallon has rolled out the Sheen act a few more times, notably in a mock music album commercial (see video after the jump). Last night’s Late Night With Jimmy Fallon saw the comedian’s version of Sheen promoting and showing
