Rob Corddry was the guest on The Pete Holmes Show last night, and as exciting as that is for fans of The Daily Show and Childrens Hospital, it was a little more baffling for Pete's dad, who was in the audience. Below, they talk about their alcoholic beverage of choice and Rob's advice for dealing with the internet.
Adult Swim's 60 Minutes parody Newsreaders is coming back for a second season. Co-creator David Wain revealed on the podcast Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend this week that production is about to begin on the 15-minute comedy's second season, although Adult Swim has yet to make an official announcement about the renewal.
A spinoff of Childrens Hospital, Adult Swim is a faux-news magazine hosted by Louis LaFonda (played by Mather Zickel) that's created and executive produced by the Childrens Hospital team of Rob Corddry, Jonathan Stern, and David Wain. Corddry, Paul Scheer, Michael Showalter, and Wyatt Cenac, amongst others, contributed as writers during the first season, which debuted in [...]
TV's craziest fake medical drama is about to get even crazier. This week, Adult Swim released info on Season 5 of Childrens Hospital, which is set to debut sometime in July, and the entire season takes place at a pediatric clinic on a U.S. Army base in Japan. It sounds pretty incredible and exactly like the kind of ambitious, unconventional stuff this show is known for. Here's a description of the season via Adult Swim:
Childrens Hospital returns for its fifth season to find the doctors relocated to a pediatric clinic on a U.S. Army base in Osaka, Japan. With the loss of recently murdered co-worker Dr. Blake Downs [...]
Here's the brand new trailer for Rapturepalooza, a comedy starring Craig Robinson, Anna Kendrick, John Francis Daley, and Rob Corddry that hits theaters later this year. This is just one of two apocalypse movies Craig Robinson is in this year. It's estimated that 50% of comedies released in 2013 will be apocalyptic comedies.
American treasure Rob Corddry wrote a guide to "America's Douchiest Bars" for Rundown.com, spotlighting some of the country's least-refined alcohol establishments. Corddry didn't limit it just to bar he dislikes either, including L.A.'s Bar Brix on the list before clarifying, "Just kidding. I love this joint. I hope the fine people that work there who ply me with wine and thick, delicious pork appreciate that a plug is a plug regardless of the title of an article."
The season finale of Childrens Hospital airs tomorrow night at midnight on Adult Swim, and for the show’s first half-hour episode, creator Rob Corddry promises sex, explosions, and something different from what viewers have seen before. That’s a tall order, since the joke machine of a show revels in changing up its formula, constantly experimenting with genre, gleefully breaking continuity, and this season arbitrarily changing settings from its only occasionally-referenced regular location in a Rio de Janeiro hospital for American expat children to a U.S. army base in Japan. In true Childrens Hospital style, the choice allowed the comedy new storytelling opportunities, which it more or less embraced before going off on its own idiosyncratic [...]
Children's Hospital and NTSF:SD:SUV air Thursday nights at midnight and 12:15 a.m. Eastern on Adult Swim. By Thursday I mean really early Friday mornings.
Back in the good old days, before season four of Community was all we complained about, there was season three of Community to complain about. Dan Harmon had watched The Wire the previous summer and gave his show an overarching narrative, with the idea that every episode had to be watched in order to best understand the motivations of the characters and to better appreciate the jokes. The meticulous planning ultimately produced some great stuff at times, and abrupt, forgettable conclusions to some subplots at [...]
In January, news came out that a Hot Tub Time Machine sequel was in the works, but now, star Craig Robinson has revealed to Collider that the sequel is official and filming is scheduled to begin in June. The previous report on Hot Tub Time Machine 2 was that Robinson, Rob Corddry, and Clark Duke would be the focus of the new movie with John Cusack not reprising his role, but when Robinson was asked this weekend if Cusack is returning, he responded, "Negotiations are still going, and everybody's involved." The original movie's director Steve Pink is expected to return and to co-write the script with [...]
Community's Ken Jeong has booked a new sitcom pilot that could wind up being a new fall show. Deadline reports that Jeong has been cast in the ABC pilot Spy, based on the British comedy of the same name. The show stars Rob Corddry as the father of a highly-intelligent child (Mason Cook), who takes a job at the Secret Service in order to prove himself to his son. Jeong will play Corddry's mischievous boss, The Examiner. Paget Brewster and comedian Moshe Kasher have also joined the cast.
Gajillionaires is a new animated series coming to Comedy Central next year about a couple of super-rich old white brothers (who are definitely not based on the Koch brothers) and their adventures in conservatism. This here is the original pilot/presentation made for the network. Obviously, Comedy Central liked it, as it was picked up to series. And with good reason! This quick look is really fun, it'll be great to see it expanded into a full show. And the voice talent! Rob Corddry, Thomas Lennon, Paul Scheer, Jordan Peele and Riki Lindhome are all on board, which is a murderer's row you can't argue with. Look for more info [...]
Nate Corddry is no stranger to the fickle whims of television. He’s starred on three tragically cancelled series, including the much-hyped Aaron Sorkin joint Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, the David E. Kelley legal dramedy Harry’s Law, and the recent animated adaptation of an ‘80s sci-fi classic, Tron: Uprising. But despite the short-lived nature of the shows that have featured him, Corddry himself has left a lasting impression as a sharp, versatile actor. He’s ably balanced both the dramatic – roles as a creepy, clingy restaurant manager on United States of Tara and a soldier in the HBO war epic The Pacific – and the hilarious – a [...]
Here's a brand new red band trailer for Reno 911! and The State duo Tom Lennon and Ben Garant's new horror-comedy Hell Baby, starring Rob Corddry, Leslie Bibb, Keegan Michael Key, Paul Scheer, and Rob Huebel. Like any good red band trailer, it features waaaayy more nudity, profanity, and pot-smoking than the movie's green band trailer.
Hell Baby, a horror comedy written and directed by Reno 911! and The State's Tom Lennon and Ben Garant, is coming your way this fall. Millenium Entertainment just bought up rights to the film, which premiered at Sundance yesterday, and they're debuting it on all VOD platforms this fall followed by a token theatrical release. Hell Baby follows an expectant couple (Rob Corddry and Leslie Bibb) who move into a haunted house in New Orleans, only to have to call out the Vatican's exorcist team to save them from their new home's demonic curse. A whole slew of lovely comedy people (Paul Scheer, Rob Huebel, Michael Ian [...]
Childrens Hospital's Rob Corddry has been cast as the lead in a new ABC comedy pilot called Spy, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Corddry will play Tim, the not-so-smart father of a super intelligent son who inadvertently takes a job at the secret service to impress his kid. Spy is based on the British show of the same name, which was created by Simeon Goulden, and Goulden is writing the US adaptation as well. The UK version of Spy recently wrapped its second season, and you can check it out on Hulu here. Rob Corddry recently appeared in a ton of movies and TV guest star [...]
