Short-Format Comedy: The Forward-Looking Comedians of Instagram and Vine

Artistically Challenged, the first native “television” series to appear on Instagram, is a story told in 15-second episodes — 15 seconds being the maximum length of an Instagram video. I just watched the first season, all 32 episodes, in a grand total of eight minutes. Yes, my head hurts a little. “Did I just have a stroke?” was a thought that crossed my mind more than once during my viewing. And before you ask, no I did not smell burnt toast — but I did laugh a hell of a lot.

The series debuted and completed its first season in July; it tells the story of Nick, an aspiring artist hoping to pass [...]

Nathan Fielder Has Been Hiding the Same Pornographic Image in All His Instagram Pictures

To help promote the second season premiere of Nathan for You on Comedy Central next Tuesday, comedian Nathan Fielder recently started an Instagram account to post some seemingly boring selfies that are actually, in fact, pornographic images of the same masturbating old man.

Justin Bieber Calls Lorne Michaels "Lauren" on Instagram

This weekend's SNL host Justin Bieber instagrammed this photo of himself and SNL head honcho Lorne Michaels prior to the show, but he made a pretty crazy mistake in the caption. Bieber wrote, "Watch me on snl tomorrow night thank u Lauren ur the man." So, either Justin Bieber is a sloppy speller or he legitimately thought Lorne Michaels's first name was "Lauren." I can't blame him; when I was 12, I briefly thought Lorne's name was "Lauren" too, but I would have double-checked if he ever asked me to host SNL. Also, unlike Bieber, I'm not from Canada, where I'm pretty sure Lorne Michaels is on [...]

Click through to watch Fielder tell O'Brien about Dumb Starbucks and how it made him greedy: "In a way I let my guard down and the devil climbed inside me."

Nathan Fielder Tells Scott Aukerman About His Nude Instagram Pictures

"It was just a silly thing at first. I thought it would be funny to have the reflection, but then as it went on it became this challenge. It's very hard to get the reflection perfect, so it was less about the dick and it was more just to see different ways to get a reflection, and everyone around the office started to participate and tried to figure out ideas … I see it as a definite comment, and I'm definitely commenting on a lot of nuances about our society as a whole, but also specific aspects of our society in general."
