Comedy Central Orders Victorian-Era Pilot Created by and Starring Natasha Leggero

It's a good week for new Comedy Central shows, especially now with the news of their most recent pilot order from Ben Stiller's production company Red Hour created by and starring Burning Love staple and Tubbin' with Tash star Natasha Leggero. According to Deadline, Leggero will star with Garfunkel and Oates' Riki Lindhome in the Victorian-era reality show spoof Another Period that "follows the misadventures of Newport’s first family, The Bellacourts, a family with nothing to offer the world, but who have so much money that it doesn’t matter. The show centers around the oldest Bellacourt sisters, Lillian (Leggero) and Beatrice (Lindhome), who care only about how [...]

Eric Andre Gets Naked (Again) on Natasha Leggero's Web Show

Natasha Leggero may have the only talk show that's nearly as crazy as Eric Andre's. Andre visited Leggero's JASH web series Tubbin' with Tash this week and proceeded to get naked, which has become his talk show go-to but makes more sense here because this talk show is set in a hot tub.

Natasha Leggero Roasted Jay Leno on 'The Tonight Show' Last Night

Standup Natasha Leggero is on the dais for Monday's Comedy Central Roast of James Franco, and she went on The Tonight Show last night to promote the event by roasting him with a bunch of jokes. The best one is "Would your parents not let you have denim as a child?"

Free Agents Recap: "Pilot"

First things first: the protagonists of Free Agents, Alex (Hank Azaria) and Helen (Kathryn Hahn), two PR agents newly single after long-term relationships, are good 'n' charming. After being the funniest thing about How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days and Our Idiot Brother (and Anchorman, as the secretary who reveals that Ron Burgundy will read “a-ny-thin-guh” off a cue card), it’s about time Hahn gets to star in something. And obviously, I could listen to Hank Azaria name made-up sex positions for a few hours at least.

How to Make a Successful Web Series with Natasha Leggero

On the spectrum of conceptual talk shows, Natasha Leggero’s Tubbin’ with Tash, which debuted last month on the YouTube channel JASH, is certainly one of the weirder ones, with its hot tub location possibly being the most conventional thing about it. Leggero is assisted by Moshe Kasher who plays her spa boy Pig Bottom, and the short-but-insane episodes have featured prominent comedians joining the host in her hot tub, which has led to memorable images like Reggie Watts twerking, Sarah Silverman using a tampon as a projectile, and Eric Andre getting naked, which is actually becoming business as usual for his talk show appearances.

I talked to Leggero recently [...]

Watch Chelsea Peretti and Reggie Watts on Natasha Leggero's New Web Show

Natasha Leggero's insane and delightful new JASH web series Tubbin' with Tash just started last week. Here's the second episode, with guests Chelsea Peretti and Reggie Watts joining Leggero and her sidekick Pig-Bottom (Moshe Kasher) in the hot tub. More talk shows need sidekicks like Pig-Bottom.

Will Ken Marino Find Love or Burns on 'Burning Love'?

Ken Marino has been alternative comedy's leading hunk for about 20 years now, so he's the perfect candidate to pretend to pretend to find love. Burning Love is the ideal web series for people who enjoy when people ask, "can I steal you for a minute?" Well, Burning Love, because you are so funny and you have such a terrific cast of female comedians (Malin Akerman, Kristen Bell, Natasha Leggero, June Diane Raphael, Ken Jeong), you can steal me for around eight minutes a week. After the jump you can find episode two and three, where we learn which archetype from The Bachelor everyone represents and who is the famous [...]

A Nice Chat with Natasha Leggero

Natasha Leggero is to comedy what cocaine is to the upper class: completely indispensable, wonderful at parties, and an excellent post-ironic study in socioeconomic politics. At a recent Gatsby-esque soiree I was lucky enough to grab her ear for a second and ask her a few questions regarding her profession. She put down her tiny silver spoon, excused herself politely from the gathering of various movers and shakers, and followed me onto the crescent shaped balcony where I dazzled her with lines — not of Colombia's second finest export — but of questions.

Sarah Silverman Visits Natasha Leggero's Hot Tub

Here's the latest episode of Natasha Leggero's JASH web series, Tubbin' with Tash, with guest Sarah Silverman. It's worth watching just for Sarah Silverman's Robin Williams impression alone.

Watch Bob Odenkirk's Adult Swim Pilot Now

Adult Swim is now streaming Let's Do This!, a pilot written by Bob Odenkirk and also featuring Brian Posehn and Natasha Leggero. Odenkirk stars as "Cal Mackenzie-Goldberg, two-bit movie mogul and head of Cal-Gold Pictures as he leads a collection of crazy, fame-hungry strivers chasing Hollywood dreams." Adult Swim's calling it a "solo episode," which unfortunately means this may be the last we see of Cal Mackenzie-Goldberg, so let's make it count. By watching it secretively at our desks and shamefully minimizing it when other people walk by.
