Eric Andre Wore a Peanut Butter Thong to Madison Square Dog Park

Instagram user Brad Frost posted photos and a description of Eric Andre showing up to a dog park in Madison Square Park today, where he took off all his clothes except for a thong made of peanut butter, put his legs in stirrups and had a bunch of dogs lick the peanut butter off. This is most likely a stunt for the upcoming third season of his Adult Swim series The Eric Andre Show, which is filming right now, and it may just be the craziest thing Andre has done yet.

Check out the photos of Andre (who has long hair now) at the dog park below:

Gil Ozeri Is Watching 62 Hours of Two and a Half Men Straight

Comedian Gil Ozeri wants to punish himself. That's the only explanation that I can think of for the stunt he's kicking off today: Two and a Half Days of Two and a Half Men. Planned before the recent Sheen meltdown/explosion, Ozeri explains his plan thusly: Charlie Sheen is the highest paid actor on television. It is the most watched comedy on TV. It's also a crutch for every comedian when they need to reference the worst thing on tv.

I have also never seen a single episode.

Now, I'm assuming that "Two and a Half Men" is a steaming pile of dog shit. But I don't want to [...]

The Complete Guide to Everything: Extreme Stunts

This week we're talking extreme stunts. From Felix Baumgartner's extreme jumping out of a space capsule to David Blane's getting electrocuted by 1 million volts for 72 hours, October has been a month more extreme than most could even imagine. But are these extremes acts of heroics, or do they just require someone being stupid enough to try?

Also this week a million-dollar idea for running a kissing brothel, Tim discusses trying to help out Greg Kinnear while sitting in the audience of Late Night with Conan O'Brien and instructions about how you could possibly win a $50,000 cash prize by coming to our live show in New York [...]

Poor Mike Birbiglia Is Now Living in a Macy's Window

In a relatively perplexing publicity stunt for Ultra Downy April Fresh, Mike Birbiglia is living in a window display at the 34th street Macy's for a week, starting this morning. You can watch him live on the internet here, if you can get the stream working, which I cannot. But I assume he is doing something hilarious that he will continue for seven straight days and nights. That's what they're paying him for, after all! Stay strong, Mike.

How I Survived Two and a Half Days of Two and a Half Men

Yes, it was quite possibly the stupidest thing I have ever done. Deciding to watch a sitcom (most likely a terrible one) for over sixty hours in a row without a break? So stupid. But, as it turned out, one of the most fun and absurd things I’ve ever done as well. I had such a great time watching the entirety of Two and a Half Men, that I’m actually going through a slight withdrawal from Charlie, Cryer and the Half-Man. That horrendously catchy theme song (beautifully composed by hitmaker Chuck Lorre, by the way) is forever ingrained in my mind. I miss the sudden, unnatural eruption of laughter [...]

Mike Birbiglia to Live, Sleep in a Macy's Window For a Week

Mike Birbiglia's promotions for Sleepwalk With Me are getting pretty intense: "Birbiglia is the featured attraction in a joint promotion of Procter & Gamble Co.'s Downy fabric softener and Macy's Inc. bedding that will find him spending a week in a display window at Macy's Herald Square store in New York City. He'll talk with fans, interact online, and, it's planned, sleep."
