After four years, HBO's Eastbound & Down ended its run last night. It was actually the second series finale for Eastbound, after co-creators Danny McBride and Jody Hill surprisingly brought the show back for a fourth season after ending it in season three last year.
I talked to Jody Hill last week about Eastbound's fourth season, the new HBO high school show he's working on with Danny McBride, and whether we'll ever see Kenny Powers again.
Louis C.K. has a great joke about how he connects with old ladies because they’re on their way out, so they just say whatever. He might have been talking about Joan Rivers, minus the “on their way out” part.
You can still rely on Rivers, who turned 80 this summer, to call bullshit on just about anyone and anything in Hollywood. Who’s going to stop someone who’s still one of the biggest names in comedy after more than 50 years in the business?
Amazingly, she might be busier than ever. Whether it’s through her show Fashion Police on E!, Joan and Melissa: Joan Knows Best on WEtv, guest appearances, [...]
Standup and self-branded cool dad Rob Delaney, celebrated for his shameless Twitter musings on Mitt Romney, the perils of marijuana, and the filthy things he’d do to his neighbor Karen if afforded the chance, has written the equivalent of several million tweets in the form of a memoir called — brace yourself — Mother.

Beloved by many as the stylish Tom Haverford on Parks and Recreation, Aziz Ansari has been amassing an impressive standup catalog for a young comic. At only 26, his first hour special, Intimate Moments for a Sensual Evening, debuted on Comedy Central in 2009. In the spring of 2012, he self-released his next special Dangerously Delicious, and tomorrow, his new hour, Buried Alive, premieres on Netflix.
His new material, which delves deep into the world of dating, romance, and children, shows a more introspective side to his personality. But he's not just talking about himself; talking to audience members and questioning them about their own romantic journeys is now a central part [...]
While one would think there's not much left for somebody to accomplish after popularizing the phrase “tight butthole,” Adam DeVine's career is only just getting started. After launching into the comedy spotlight on the hit Comedy Central sitcom Workaholics – which he co-created with fellow Mail Order Comedy members Blake Anderson, Anders Holm and Kyle Newacheck – DeVine has since landed roles on Community and Modern Family, appeared in a couple commercials, and had a memorable turn as egomaniac Bumper in the a capella musical comedy Pitch Perfect.
DeVine even managed to find enough time away from writing and filming the upcoming fourth season of Workaholics to host his [...]
