Tom Scharpling announced last month that his beloved, long-running radio show/podcast The Best Show on WFMU will be ending its run on December 17th after 13 years on the air, and it looks like the station has found a replacement. New Jersey-based station WFMU has tapped comedian Dave Hill to take over the Tuesday 9pm to midnight slot currently occupied by Best Show, Current.org reports. Hill and WFMU station manager Ken Freedman are still figuring out exactly what the comedian's untitled show will be, but it may include interviews.
"I think he’s really funny,” Scharpling said of Hill. "I’ll support him however I can. My goal is [...]
Lauren Hill and Anna Breslaw are quickly becoming this column’s female empowerment champions. In April, we covered Beer Goggles, their refreshing take on a quintessentially male zeitgeist addition — talking about how much hotter girls seem when the pursuing males are drunk. Now, we’re bringing you PHIL, a sketch that stays true to Cook and Breslaw’s affinity for messing around with gender norms but in a more hardcore way. Like porn hardcore. Well, I mean there’s no nudity so it’s not really porn hardcore, but it’s definitely erotic novel hardcore.
Again Cook and Breslaw have surprised me with their sensibility, specifically their unusual knack for turning something kind [...]
The Olympics are confusing. Some events take place on courts, some in pools, some with rifles. Luckily, Dave Hill is working with BBC America to explain how sports work to the common man. Like how the goal of the floor exercise is ungracefully fall on your face. Below, watch Dave explain boxing and get punched a lot. You can watch him explain other sports here.
The first time I saw Dave Hill perform, he was giving a celebrity interview to Ira Glass and wearing — at least in my memory — some kind of kimono-inspired bathrobe. His answers were slow and sleepy and totally absurd. Periodically and without provocation, he’d solo for a while on the electric guitar, just because, you know. But while another performer might go broad, Hill remains disarmingly sincere: you feel a little like you’re watching him vamp in front of the bathroom mirror when nobody else is home. In his just-off-the-mark version of reality, none of this is a joke. In our world, it is, which is good — [...]
With the birth of Kate Middleton's royal spawn imminent, dapper-as-fuck comedian Dave Hill headed over to Merry Old England to take in the sights and talk to folks about the baby mania sweeping the island. In this first installment of the series, he manages to call the Duchess of Cambridge a skank to the Mayor of Windsor and basically stalks Pippa in her hometown. Looking forward to the rest!
Here's a new episode of HuffPost Comedy's first-ever web series, Stallin' with Dave Hill, with guests Nikki Glaser and Sara Schaefer from MTV's Nikki and Sara Live. This may end up being the best web video filmed in a ladies' restroom you see all week.
If that's not enough Dave Hill for you, head over to Vulture for a video of Hill showing off the best places in New York to visit for Valentine's Day.
I was with a friend of mine last night who was like, “I don’t know if I can take all these jokes about you having cancer.” And I was like: “Oh, I’m sorry. It occupies 99 percent of my brain right now, and I just don’t know what to do with it."
So why a dating video:
The doctor has prepared me for more weight loss and losing my hair. Dating isn’t the main focus here, but it’s fresh in my mind, because I just [...]
Yes! Dave Hill, the awesome comedian and musician behind the "You Had To Be There" theme song, is finally a guest on the show, providing some acoustic songs and hilarious conversation. He and the ladies discuss high school reunions, boobies, Nikki's instagram, and Dave tells one of the CRAZIEST subway stories of all time. This one is so GREAT!
Comedian Chris Gethard is having Goosebumps author R.L. Stine join him tonight on his delightful public access show The Chris Gethard Show to help him write a book live on air. Along with fellow authors D.C. Pierson (The Boy Who Couldn’t Sleep and Never Had To) and Dave Hill (Tasteful Nudes), Stine and Gethard (who is also an author) will be writing an entire book in one hour, tonight at 11PM EST live on the internet or on Manhattan Public Access. I wrote this paragraph in under an hour, and I’m just one man. Compared to that, four people writing a book in one hour sounds like no big [...]
David Rakoff died last night, far too young at 47. Here's a video that Dave Hill just put online of a "book tour" for Don't Get Too Comfortable that they made together for a reading. It's hilarious and wonderful and makes today that much more sad. Here's Hill on the video: A few years ago, David Rakoff and I, DH, made this video with Keith Aumont Goldberg to play at a reading we did together. In it, we pretend to go on a book tour for David's second book "Don't Get Too Comfortable." In reality, we were just driving around mostly while I tried not to crash [...]
