  • Richard Pryor in the Era of the 'New Racism'

    PJ Media ^ | August 26, 2016 | Roger L. Simon
    In the days before I was exiled by the HTP (Hollywood Thought Police), I wrote screenplays for several comedy stars. The greatest of those, without doubt, was the late Richard Pryor, thought by many (including me) to have been the greatest stand-up comic of all time.I wrote the script for the film Bustin' Loose for Richard and, while working on the revisions, traveled with him across country while he was on tour. He had me write one-liners for his stand-up as well, but used almost none of them. Maybe they weren't funny enough, but he didn't need them. Pryor didn't...

    During an early summer visit to Washington, D.C., comedian James Corden brought his "Carpool Karaoke" segment to the White House with First Lady Michelle Obama.In contrast to Corden's usual guests, such as Adele and the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Obama didn't have an album to promote and didn't have any songs of her own to sing. Instead, she joined Corden on a pleasant (and heavily guarded) tour through Washington. The two discussed life in the White House and sang along to some of the first lady's favorite tunes."James Corden's White House tour takes an unthinkable turn when First Lady Michelle...

    Paris (AFP) - A rapidly melting glacier atop East Antarctica is on track to lift oceans at least two metres, and could soon pass a "tipping point" of no return, researchers said Wednesday. To date, scientists have mostly worried about the Greenland and West Antarctic ice sheets as dangerous drivers of sea level rise. But the new study, following up on earlier work by the same team, has identified a third major threat to hundreds of millions of people living in coastal areas around the world. "I predict that before the end of the century the great global cities of...

    U2 frontman Bono brought his star power to Capitol Hill on Tuesday as he called on members of Congress to take swift action to deal with the global refugee crisis and violent extremism. Before a Senate subcommittee, one of Bono's suggestions was to use comedy to fight extremist groups. "It's like, you speak violence, you speak their language. But you laugh at them when they are goose-stepping down the street and it takes away their power," he said. "So I am suggesting that the Senate send in Amy Schumer and Chris Rock and Sacha Baron Cohen, thank you."

    The operating assumption for political observers going into the 2016 election has been that Sen. Ted Cruz doesn't stand a chance to win a general election. But now that the odds have increased of him actually being the Republican nominee, it's worth revisiting that assumption. There are no doubt a number of good arguments as to why Cruz would be too polarizing to win a general election, particularly given how the nation's demographic trends favor Democrats. There's a reason why the smart money would be betting against him. But let's entertain an alternate possibility. To start, of all the Republicans,...

    Born 100 years ago (today), Jackie Gleason rose to the top of comedy thanks to his larger than life personality and rigorous work ethic. The mood of the photo essay is a strange one: Jackie Gleason’s soon-to-be hit show The Honeymooners was about to hit the airwaves, but the star’s look in the pages of that 1955 issue of LIFE was melancholy. The entertainer, as the magazine explained, had “just become, by financial standards at least, history’s greatest comedian.” He was raking in millions between his weekly Jackie Gleason Show and new contracts with Buick and CBS for The Honeymooners....

I attended his show last year when he came to Scottsdale, Arizona, and have never laughed so hard. Dennis Prager calls him "The funniest man in America."

    Contrary to what some bloggers (many of whom support Donald Trump’s presidential campaign) and the Internet rumor mill have been saying, Sen.

Some form of the bill has been introduced since 2000, but the measure has never been controversial until presidential campaign politics intervened. What the measure does is expand who can use Coverdell education savings accounts by clarifying that for the purpose of Coverdell expenses only, the...

    "Hear us out a minute: What if Bernie Sanderss whole Presidential campaign is just fodder for a new season of Larry Davids beloved HBO series, Curb Your Enthusiasm? A new viral video created by editor Dominick Nero provides plenty of evidence for that interpretation. Using footage from the recent Democratic Party debate, Nero re-edited Sanders exchanges into vintage David freak-outs, underscored by the shows famous theme song, Frolic, by Luciano Michelini. Even the reaction shots are classic Curb; Hilary Clinton comes across like the Jeff to Sanders David, while gangly Martin OMalley is the resident Marty Funkhouser."
