This Week in Web Videos: 'The Very Real Dangers of Doing Drugs'

Didn't think you'd see a a D.A.R.E. sketch after 1999, did ya? Same. Also, same. Here's the thing: I clicked this one, sent to me by the fine folks at Stevedore Comedy and, holy hell, it's  quite good. It's also eye opening as a reminder that no premise is inherently hackneyed. If placed in the hands of capable and brave comedians, even the thing you thought you'd seen a million times could take on entirely new life.

Why I'm a Cop, by Pablo Goldstein

Listen up, kid. In my 12 years of walking the beat, I’ve learned what it takes to survive in the big city. But there ain’t many police like me. Nuh-uh. Usually cops end up as one of two schmoes: Either doe-eyed rookies burnt out after a few months, or Grey-Hairs sucking down a cold cup of Joe in the bullpen because they couldn’t hack it out on the streets. Wanna know my secret to avoiding those fates? I’ll tell ya. It’s because when I put on the badge in the morning, I know exactly why I do it.

I want to protect and serve the fine people of New [...]

The Duplass Brothers Set to Write Mule for Todd Phillips

Mark and Jay Duplass have been brought on to adapt Mule for Todd Phillips to direct and produce. It's an curious pairing if not a super exciting one.

Here is a list of the movies the Duplass Brothers have written: The Puffy Chair, Baghead, Cyrus, Jeff, Who Lives at Home.

Here is a list of movies Todd Phillips has directed: Road Trip, Old School, Starsky & Hutch, School for Scoundrels, The Hangover, Due Date, The Hangover Part II

Those are two very different lists of movies. The Dup-Bros pioneered the somewhat comedic, but in a VERY minor way, genre of Mumblecore and Phillips works in the area of Naked-Face-Tattoo-Dudes-Core. [...]

Harrison Ford Was High as Shit on Conan Last Night

Before Reggie Watts killed it on Conan last night, Harrison Ford showed up in a state that can only be described as being fucked out of his mind. Seriously, have you ever seen someone so clearly on drugs before in your life? There is literally no other explanation for this other than that he's picked up a late-in-life case of Autism. But that seems unlikely, doesn't it? I just wanna know what Han Solo is on here. It seems relaxing.

Also, according to Gethard, "Jigger!" is the word in the clip that is bleeped out for some reason.

Part two of the clip is below:

Stephen Colbert Takes on a Mexican Drug Cartel One Chip at a Time

The Colbert Report Get More: Colbert Report Full Episodes,Political Humor & Satire Blog,Video Archive

Stephen was cool with the Knights Templar drug cartel until they messed with his snacks. He warns the drug pushers not to mess with Don Pringles because "once he pops he cannot stop." Which makes sense, considering that moustache. He looks like Bill the Butcher from Gangs of New York but instead of murdering people and butchering meat, he murders people and butchers potatoes.

Brian Posehn Convinces Conan to Only Smoke Pot with Two-Eyed Men

Do you smoke pot? Don't worry, I'm not a cop. You ever get so high that you find yourself hanging out with some dude named Ganja John and then Ganja John takes out one of his eyes and you are like, "Woooooah, put your eye back in, dude?" Well that happened to Brian Posehn and it changed him forever. Also, I am a cop, you're arrested. JK, I'm not. Double JK, put your hands behind your back and laugh, because triple JK, this was a bit.

Stephen Colbert Looks Deeper Into the Drug War In Canada

Mr. Brand Goes to Parliament

A few weeks ago, Russell Brand was brought to Parliament to speak on the matter of decriminalizing drugs. Instead, he used the opportunity to speak to what he believed was the heart of issue, the way addicts are treated by the government. Brand, a former heroin addict, eloquently and thoughtfully argued that addicts should be viewed not as criminal but as sick people that need help. Does this not sound like the former Mr. Katy Perry to you? Maybe, I should mention that Brand showed up wearing a black cowboy hat and a tank top under a floor-length black trench coat – the man still got it.

How I Met Your Mother's Josh Radnor Is Publishing a Drug Memoir

Josh Radnor has written a book called One Big Blissful Thing that "details his journey from a suburban Ohio upbringing to ayahuasca ceremonies in the Amazon." Apparently ayahuasca is some kind of hallucinogenic plant and oh my god why does Wikipedia have to be down today of all days when we're all just trying to learn more about Ted Mosby's crazy drug adventures! I guess I have to go buy an encyclopedia now.
