"Well, there's been extraordinary talent, let's get real. I don't want to start listing names because there's too many that I would forget, but between Eddie Murphy and [Dana] Carvey and Mike Myers and Will Ferrell and so forth … I think Bill Hader probably did the best work anyone ever did on that show … It took him a little while to get going, but once he got going it was extraordinary."
Jerry Seinfeld debuted the latest episode of his web series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee today with Howard Stern as his guest, and the two spend most of the episode needling each other and busting each other's balls.
Saturday Night Live is an institution that has been considered overrated and underrated since its debut in 1975, always provoking debate, always somewhere on the minds of everyone in the comedy world, and subsequently and most importantly of all, always watched and analyzed every single week. And it seems that from the very beginning, everybody that wasn't NBC knew that they were screwed, and have continually opted to not counter with their own original programming. Fox seems to be the one network that refuses to admit defeat, throwing up their own comedy shows on Saturday nights since 1989, and returning to the weekend late night original programming game with [...]
Comedian Eli Braden has an impressive 58,000 Twitter followers, but that’s nothing compared to the 6 million SiriusXM subscribers who routinely hear his parody songs.
Fans of the Howard Stern Show know Braden (@elibraden) as the comedian/musician who regularly provides the show’sraunchy parody songs introducing Robin Quivers, Stern’s well-endowed news anchor. (Sample “Robin’s Double G’s” sung to the tune of “Up on Cripple Creek.”)
Though Braden’s songs are admittedly lowbrow, the jokes in his popular Twitter feed are often extremely clever and have drawn such fans as “Weird Al” Yankovic and Molly McNearney, Jimmy Kimmel Live’s head writer who gave Braden a tryout writing on the [...]
Here's Howard Stern's interview with John Oliver from earlier today in its entirety, in which the duo discuss Oliver's difficult early days in show business, Ricky Gervais recommending him to The Daily Show, turning down a full-time job on Community to stay on Daily Show, and Last Week Tonight in depth.
Here's a trailer for the new season of Jerry Seinfeld's web series, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, that reveals all of the guests doing the show this year: Todd Barry, Louis C.K., Tina Fey, Jay Leno, Patton Oswalt, and Howard Stern. Season 3 starts up January 2nd, with new episodes dropping once a week.
Jerry Seinfeld went on Howard Stern's show this morning for a lengthy, wide-ranging interview about all manner of things. From Seinfeld to standup to comedy schools to fame to everything in between, it's well worth diving deep into when you've got a chunk of time to spare.
The NY Post reported last week that NBC was grooming Howard Stern to replace Jimmy Fallon on Late Night should Fallon replace Leno on The Tonight Show, but Stern debunked the Post's story this week on his satellite radio show. "First of all, what an insult," Stern began. "Like, all the years of my career. I'm like the biggest guy in radio. I've done film. I've done television … They act like I'm some kind of fucking beginner or something … Maybe if I'm really nice to NBC, they'll let me take over Carson Daly's show at like 2 o'clock in the morning." Stern continued, "I [...]
While not the most versatile SNL cast member ever, Norm Macdonald is certainly one of the most beloved in the show’s storied history, having achieved cult hero status with comedy fans for his blunt, aloof style and his razor-sharp wit. Since he was ousted from the Weekend Update desk and subsequently left Saturday Night Live, Macdonald has struggled to find the proper vehicle for his comedy in the world of TV and films. His sitcoms (The Norm Show, A Minute with Stan Hooper) and Sports Show didn’t last long, while his movies (Dirty Work, Screwed) both flopped. Still, Norm Macdonald’s one of the funniest guys around, whether it be [...]
For 30 years Howard Stern has been a guest on Letterman's late night show. Whether it was on Late Night or Late Show, Stern’s common topics generally include therapy, sex, Paul Shaffer, and Jay Leno. Stern has been one of Letterman’s most engaging guests; he’s one of the few that overpowers Letterman and becomes the interviewer, usually making the host grimace. Stern is part of the elite group of guests that Letterman clearly likes having on — even if the conversation isn’t always to Letterman’s fondness. Letterman is like Stern's older brother who's disappointed yet always entertained. Stern has made over 20 appearances on Letterman’s shows and continues to be [...]
Things weren’t looking too good for Magic Johnson in the summer of 1998. The Magic Hour, Johnson’s late night talk show and 20th Century Fox’s answer to the Late Show with David Letterman and, of course, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, was tanking. Four weeks after its premiere, the show, weighed down by strong competition and Magic’s inexperience, couldn’t withstand the critical beating and steadily declining ratings that terrified affiliates. The Magic Hour had to shake things up and it had to do it fast.
The cards were stacked against Magic from the beginning. The former basketball superstar was admittedly robotic on camera and had neither the standup [...]
"I subscribe to the 'anyone but Jay' philosophy. No offense to you. You know I love you, but if they had replaced Jay with Ahmadinejad over in Iran, I am telling you I wouldn't have cared. Charlie Manson could have taken over The Tonight Show as long as it's not Jay Leno."
Multiplenews outlets have reported over the last few months that NBC is exploring the option of replacing Jay Leno with Jimmy Fallon as host of The Tonight Show when Leno's contract runs up in 2014, fueling a lot of speculation as to who will get Fallon's job. According to a piece today in The NY Post, Howard Stern is being "groomed" by NBC to take over Late Night if Fallon gets the Tonight Show job. The Post cites sources close to Stern as saying he's the top contender for the job, but NBC has yet to make an official comment on the Stern/Late Night[...]
