Watch Sarah Silverman's French Short Film

Here's "Fête des Pets," a French short film Sarah Silverman made for JASH, a YouTube comedy channel in which she is a partner. It's a little creepy, like all French short films.

Charlie Sheen Drags President Bartlett Down With Him

Charlie Sheen finally managed to rope Martin Sheen into his twisted, delusional headspace, Apocalypse Now fantasies and all. Gotta say, I feel like if Martin had put Charlie in his place like this when he was a little younger, things might have turned out a little differently for him. Boundaries are important. Alas, Sheen Senior was busy gazing intensely out the Oval Office windows and listening to Rob Lowe talk really fast, so, better late than never. Only 125 hours till the roast!!

A Video Guide to Fred Armisen’s Pre-'SNL' Years

Throughout Saturday Night Live's history, the  show’s cast has been largely imported from comedy training grounds like the Second City in Chicago or The Groundlings in LA, but Fred Armisen’s path to the show was a little different than most of his peers’. Armisen spent the better part of the 90s as a musician. His main gig was drumming for the punk band Trenchmouth but after the group broke up, he briefly served as background drummer for the Blue Man Group and had his own salsa band before switching to a career in comedy in his early 30s.

Craig Ferguson Heads to Paris with Kristen Bell and His Robot Skeleton Sidekick

While Conan, Leno and Letterman might roam North America to film their shows in unknown cities, Craig Ferguson, Kristen Bell and Ferguson's robot sidekick Geoff Peterson are headed to Paris to shoot a week of La La Late Late Show Avec Craig Ferguson. Conceived as a stripped-down, low-budget version of the late night show, Craig Ferguson's Paris Week will film next week and air the first week in August, unless that terrifying robot escapes into the city, which it almost certainly will.

The 30 Best Videos of Reggie Watts Being Awesome

Reggie Watts is a wholly unique entity. What he does and why it's so funny is inexplicable. One thing is for certain, the man is photogenic, videogenic, telegenic, everything-genic. His blend of fro, beard, dexterous mouth, and crazy eyes are the perfect accompaniment to his form of loop-based music/performance art/comedy. Many videographers have realized if you just put a camera on the man, he’ll make some amazing for you. Here are some of the best examples:

Thank God for That Milk Break: Meet the Real and Imaginary Andy Samberg on Seasame Street's Conversations With Bert

As the first episode of Seasame Street's Conversations With Bert, Andy Samberg's interview takes a hostile tone pretty quickly. "Must we continue with this snappy comedy banter?" the puppet host asks, demonstrating the interviewing prowess of Piers Morgan and the charisma of an annoyed librarian before they both settle into an awkward silence. On the flip side, we do get to learn Andy's favorite fabric (velour or rayon), author (Harry Potter) and imaginary means of transportation (jet pack) before the two bury their uncomfortableness in a big carton of warm milk. Somebody's little puppet talent coordinator is going to get his ass handed to him on a platter [...]
