• Ray Romano, James Spader join Gervais, Arnett and more in The Office finale

    As most of you know, The Office is ending its seventh glorious season on May 19.

    Punchline Magazine analysis: the rise of comedian on comedian programming

    Late last week, HBO dropped a teaser for their new behind-the-curtain comedy special, Talking Funny (see video below) which features such astronomically big names as Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Rock, Louis C.K. and Ricky Gervais simply sitting in a room chatting about their craft. Stalwart comedy observers might think of Talking Funny of HBO’s answer to Showtime’s oft-praised Green Room with Paul Provenza– which is basically the same concept (except it

    Orbit gum enlists Will Arnett, Jason Bateman more for TV ad campaign

    Orbit has thrown together an all star cast for the first segment of their new online series, “Orbit Dirty Shorts.” Sure, it may only be a glorified commercial, but with the comedic talents of Arrested Development’s Will Arnett and Jason Bateman, Aubrey Plaza (the cute girl from Funny People) and Rachel Harris (Stu’s horrifying girlfriend in The Hangover), it’s actually pretty funny. For those of you who need more convincing,
