Amy Schumer And Chris Rock Team Up For Her HBO Special

This could be... LIFE-CHANGING.

You can imagine how my brain exploded when I found out that my new Top Special Amy Schumer was teaming up with one of my longtime Top Specials Chris Rock. Oh. Em. Gee. This is going to be awesome. First of all, if you haven’t seen Schumer’s 12 Angry Men sketch, get it together. It’s not as incredible (IMO) as No Raping/Football Town Nights or Last Fuckable Day, but it’s still pretty awesome. I can only imagine what we have to look forward to with her HBO special. Click inside for more!

ICYMI: John Oliver’s Take On Baltimore Was Hilarious And Heartbreaking

'Last Week Tonight with John Oliver,' FTW!

I’m not sure if I believe in love at first sight, but I will never forget the first time I watched Last Week Tonight with John Oliver. I was doing dishes and looking for something on HBO, and was sort of like, “Ah, let’s try this out.” Within seconds I was looking around, asking the entire world why they hadn’t told me about this guy. And I’d been meaning to catch up on some episodes when I saw that his Baltimore clip was going around. ICYMI, you have to watch. It’s amazing how prevalent racism in this country is—and how ridiculous it all is when you really look at it. Click inside for more.

Why Aren’t You Watching ‘The Last Man On Earth’ With Me?!

This show is kind of... awesome

I hadn’t made plans to watch the new FOX post-apocalyptic comedy The Last Man On Earth, and then I started reading all of this buzz about it. One of our editors at Paste Magazine wrote an essay about it when the show first premiered, and finally one day I decided to watch the first few episodes. Totally fell in love, totally can’t stop watching. It’s a nice, light-hearted (but still really funny and fascinating) alternative to my top special shows (The Good Wife, Scandal, Mad Men, etc.). All of that to say, why aren’t you watching this show with me?! Click inside for more (also, if you’re really not watching, SPOILERS AHEAD)!

Stop Everything And Watch Aziz Ansari’s Very Feminist Netflix Special: ‘Live At Madison Square Garden’

Smart, Hilarious, and NSFW
Aziz on the First Generation Struggle

Yesterday I took a much-needed afternoon off and decided to stream Aziz Ansari‘s latest Netflix special, Live At Madison Square Garden. Oh. My. Gawd. I SO wish they had a clip of my favorite bit, in which Ansari brilliantly and hilariously describes some of the major differences between the experiences of men and women in this country. It was so awesome, and so feminist. I’ve been re-watching a bunch of the Louis C.K. standup specials that are also on Netflix (because yes, I’ve been in need of some serious laughs lately), and it’s always so great to see how my favorite comedians take on these issues. Ansari also addresses relationships and opens up (as only he can) about his life before and after his current relationship with Courtney McBroom. Peep the NSFW video above to hear him thank his parents for struggling, so he didn’t have to. Then please rearrange your life to watch this show today.

Watch: Justin Bieber Gets ‘Tattooed’ In A New Video Promo For His Comedy Central Roast

Take Aim March 30
"How does it look?"

Earlier this month, we saw a promo video of Justin Bieber getting pelted with eggs to promote the forthcoming Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber special set to air on Comedy Central next month. Today we get to see the just-released newest promo video for the comedy special. This time around, The Biebs is seen getting a bullseye target tattooed on his back … the joke being he doesn’t know he’s being marked for attack by comedian Jeffrey Ross. Get it? Personally, I hope the jokes that we get during the much-anticipated Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber are funnier than this promo video is cuz … I’m still waiting for the LULz.

Eddie Murphy Refused To Do A Bill Cosby Skit On The ‘SNL’ 40th Anniversary Special

Cosby "applauds" his decision not to

Last weekend, Eddie Murphy returned to the Saturday Night Live stage for the first time in over 30 years to participate in SNL‘s massive 40th anniversary special. As you may recall, those of you who watched, Eddie‘s appearance on the special was super short, not at all funny and severely lacking in … everything. Today we learn from former SNL castmember Norm Macdonald (who also appeared on the SNL40 special) that Eddie was supposed to do a skit lampooning Bill Cosby and, for whatever reason, decided not to do the skit … or anything else. Norm explained what was supposed to happen in a long series of tweets. Cosby caught wind of Murphy‘s decision not to make fun of him on SNL and issued an official statement applauding Eddie‘s decision … which, suddenly, makes applause feel dirty and tarnished. More »
