12 Funny People on Vine Worth Watching For More Than 6 Seconds

It has been a little over one hundred days since the Vine app made its debut. While Twitter (the owner of Vine) made the transition from a curious and mocked social media application to a respected and recognized fertile ground for creativity after a couple of years of existence, Vine has already made comedic stars out of illustrators, art directors, musicians, and other walks of life that aren't normally directly associated with comedy. And of course, there are the Rob Delaneys of Vine: veteran comedians that found themselves to be uniquely suited to the new app, finding it almost too easy to tell a joke in six seconds or [...]

Steve Agee, Kumail Nanjiani, and Steve Little Join Craig Robinson's NBC Pilot

Comedians Steve Agee (The Sarah Silverman Program), Kumail Nanjiani (Franklin & Bash), and Steve Little (Eastbound & Down) are all playing supporting roles in Craig Robinson's untitled NBC pilot, produced by Greg Daniels and written by Office writer Owen Ellickson. Nanjiani tweeted this photo of the full cast yesterday, with the new actors joining previously-announced cast members Amanda Lund (bottom left), Amandla Stenberg (bottom, middle), and Larenz Tate (back row to the right of Robinson). The pilot stars Robinson as a musician adjusting to his new life as a music teacher at an inner city middle school. This was already a show worth looking forward to for [...]

The Vine 5 Film Festival: Bambi, Juno and Shame

Vine is the cool new toy from Twitter that challenges users to make the most profound work ever committed to video in exactly six seconds. Or at the very least, challenges the masses to bring a little more laughter into this world. On Tuesdays we'll be screening five of the funniest shorts of the past week, until Vine is abandoned for the next new thing.

The Fridge-Sized Steve Agee Documents His Director's Nerdy Replica Movie Props Collection

And that's a tall fridge! You could fit so many everlasting gobstoppers in that fridge or Steve Agee. Though you probs shouldn't because they'd last forever and you'd have a useless refrigerator or Steve Agee. This video was made as part of an indiegogo campaign to help fund a horror comedy starring Agee. In the film, Agee plays a serial killer's fridge, who comes to life when dead bodies' blood gets into the coolant. It's called "Refrigerate-Dead."

More funny people made their first attempts at Vine this past week. As part of #OneVineDay and the Just For Laughs festival in Chicago, some comedians who were either waiting for the app to get to Android and/or [...]

Watch Steve Agee and Brandon Johnson's New Comedy Central Web Show

Here's the first episode of Steve & Brandon Think They Sold a Show, a new Comedy Central web series starring Steve Agee (Sarah Silverman Program) and Brandon Johnson (NTSF:SD:SUV). Created by also starring Michael Busch and JC Coccoli, the show follows Agee and Johnson as a fictional sketch comedy duo who think they sold a show to Comedy Central due to an intern's mistake. I'm pretty sure that's how Mind of Mencia got on the air.

Check out the rest of the episodes below:

Jack Black, Steve Agee, and Rob Schrab Sell a Show to FX

Jack Black's company Electric Dynamite is developing a half-hour show written by The Sarah Silverman Program's Steve Agee and Rob Schrab, Deadline reports. Black, Agee, and Schrab are all veterans of Channel 101, the long-running monthly short film festival that Schrab co-created with Dan Harmon. Agee and Schrab's untitled FX series is based on Agee's childhood, attending a military academy in the 1980s. The show is said to be similar in tone to Freaks and Geeks, which is a daunting but promising thing to compare it to. The deal with FX is only a script commitment (and not a pilot or series commitment) right now, but a coming-of-age [...]

Michael Ian Black and Josh Malina's Sad, Sad Conversation

"It is sad to be old and still be in show business. This business we call show," muses The Go-Go's Jane Wiedlin on Michael Ian Black's sadsadconversation YouTube channel. Created with Josh Malina back in April, Black's truly depressing video conversations on aging and creativity have since expanded to include topics like Rob Delaney's stress-induced alopecia, Sarah Thyre's hoarding neighbor, and Martha Plimpton's anxiety about being known in the comedy community enough to even participate. Watching a wild-eyed Steven Weber find a spider in his hotel room and launch into a conversation about Brando is almost too real, though not as unsettling as [...]

Steve Agee is the Sidekick for Diablo Cody's TBS Talk Show Pilot

Steve Agee is set to become a talk show sidekick. The Sarah Silverman Program co-star and Vine luminary has signed on to sidekick for writer Diablo Cody's TBS talk show pilot, Me Time with Diablo Cody, Deadline reports. Agee will also serve as a writer on the potential series, which will be Cody's first significant onscreen role after working behind the scenes as a writer and/or director on Juno, Young Adult, The United States of Tara, and plenty of other stuff. As far as choices for talk show sidekicks go, Agee makes sense because he's quick, funny, and he's proven on Vine that he doesn't need a ton [...]

Watch Matt Oswalt's "Pre Dawn Show"

Matt Oswalt, creator/star of the excellent web series Puddin' and Patton Oswalt's brother, just released this video for "Pre Dawn Show," a talk show hosted in his bed before the sun comes up when everyone involved is super tired. His announcer is Steve Agee, guest Steven Weber, and musical guest Aimee Mann. Hopefully, there are more of these to come.
