Stephen Colbert Gives Some Grownup Advice to Girls for 'Rookie'

Rookie's ongoing series "Ask a Grown Man" has already offered up plenty of great advice from comedy people like Danny Pudi, Kumail Nanjiani, Judd Apatow, and Jimmy Fallon, and this week they returned with a brand new installment with none other than Stephen T. Colbert, who doles out thoughtful advice on sex, relationships, crushes, and what to do when a teenage boy acts like a misogynistic jerk. It's a cool look at less Stephen Colbert the TV show host and more Stephen Colbert the real-life father.

ABC Is Developing a Cop Comedy from 'Community' Writer Andy Bobrow

ABC just put into development a new sitcom called Rookie, about a woman in her 20s who attempts to reinvent herself by becoming a cop, in turn finding a surrogate family amongst her fellow police officers. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the show was created by longtime Community writer Andy Bobrow, who will also serve as executive producer alongside Easy A director Will Gluck. Bobrow has been a writer/producer on Community since the start of its second season, and he's penned some of the series' more memorable episodes, like "Basic Rocket Science," "Mixology Certification," and "Pillows and Blankets," so this should be something all you Community fans are [...]

Judd Apatow Can't Teach You How to Kiss Boys

He'd like to but he can't. What he can do is give a bunch of solid advice about how to be a happier teenager. It speaks to the sad teenager in all of us. If you don't have a sad teenager inside of you (Do you want one? Ewww, sorry.), watch the video for his singing and the glimpse into what a comedy luminary's office looks like.

Watch Tig Notaro's Video for Rookie's 'Ask a Grown Woman'

Here's a bunch of advice for teenage girls from comedian Tig Notaro as a part of Rookie magazine's series Ask a Grown Woman. Her main piece of advice? Lying about your grandmother having a bunny farm.

Danny Pudi Shows Off His Body to Teach Teenage Girls About Self-Esteem

Danny Pudi is the latest dude celebrity to offer up advice to teen girls for Rookie Magazine’s “Ask a Grown Man” series.  In the above video, he shows off his body, but not in a creepy way. It’s to teach these teenage girls to embrace their body types. Pudi proves to be full of tips for girls that are equally sweet and thoughtful, unlike his emotionless TV character Abed, who probably wouldn’t be sought-after to answer questions from Rookie’s teen audience.

Hannibal Buress Gives Solid Advice to Teenage Girls

Hannibal Buress gave some advice to teenage girls on Rookie Magazine, and it is pretty great advice for everyone. "If you wanna say something, go say it. If it sounds stupid, so what? It doesn't matter. We all die one day." Yep. He is the best. Also, he just figured out how to use the effects on his computer, so for most of the video he looks like the thing from The Thing mid-transformation.

P.S. "Okay, first off, from your use of the word butthole I'm gonna guess that you're a tween."

Watch Jimmy Fallon's "Ask a Grown Man" Video for Rookie

Here's a video Jimmy Fallon made for the series "Ask a Grown Man" for Rookie, the online magazine for teenage girls. Comedy dudes like Judd Apatow, Hannibal Buress, Kumail NanjianiDanny Pudi, and Mike Birbiglia have done past installments, fielding questions from teen and tween ladies, but all of their videos fall short of Fallon's because none of them included Mario Kart anecdotes.

Every Teenage Girl Needs a Little Mike Birbiglia to Give Them Advice

Those teenage years, they're rough. That's why I like Rookie's Ask a Grown Man feature, as it lets those poor, confused teenagers get advice from grown ups they respect a lot more than their stupid parents, who totally don't understand them. The latest entry in the series features Mike Birbiglia giving some pretty solid advice on subjects such as kissing, sexist jokes, and broken hearts, and somewhat less solid advice on high-waisted jeans. Just have him stick to the subject of human connections and avoid fashion and you'll be fine, teenage girls.

Amy Poehler, Aubry Plaza And Rashida Jones Confirm Candy Is, Will Always Be Delicious

Part of me feels this video of Amy Poehler, Aubrey Plaza and Rashida Jones taste-testing candy will only teach teenagers it's okay to eat boxes of candy you receive unsolicited in the mail. So in that regard, it's more like the opposite of a PSA. Another lesson learned? How many lifeforms die per year from eating Poprocks: 10 to 20 humans, 20 ducks or waterfowl. "Interesting. It feels like spider babies are being born in my mouth," Plaza notes as she samples the rocks. Kids…do not try to make your own Poprocks at home, no matter how many spider egg sacs you find in your attic.
