  • This is Comedian Felonious Munk’s Wild Anti-Obama Rant (This is so hilarious)

    Stop It B via The Blaze ^ | August 11th | Felonious Munk
    When Glenn Beck heard the following rant by comedian Felonious Munk, he couldn’t believe it. You probably won’t either. Munk is known for recording wild, profanity-laced YouTube rants as part of a series he calls “Stop It B!” Sometimes it’s hard to tell what he really believes and what is part of his routine. But we’ll let you make up your mind regarding his latest rant — a stern message to Obama about the debt ceiling and America paying its bills. There’s now way to really sum it up, except for that it has a lot of GRAPHIC LANGUAGE and...

    Unless they get so angry at us that they send terminators from the future to kill us.Wow, that whole debt-ceiling debate was scary. For a while there, it looked like a few radical extremists were going to keep the country from going further into debt. And then where would we be? Without all the free stuff we like, because some people are stuck on the primitive notion that a budget should balance? I think you can say without hyperbole that people who think like that are literally terrorists, except a million times worse. What makes people think the government should...

    SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Pee-wee Herman hopes to take his act back on the road for a new big-screen adventure. Paul Reubens told an audience at the Comic-Con fan convention Thursday that he's working with Hollywood comedy powerhouse Judd Apatow to produce a new movie. Reubens appeared in character as Pee-wee, with his bow-tie and gray suit. He played the oddball man-child on television and in two feature films, including Tim Burton's 1985 comedy "Pee-wee's Big Adventure." Reubens says Apatow felt strongly that the new film should return the character to his life on the road in the first movie

    Created by Frank Peppiatt and John Ayleswoth, the first HEE HAW show aired on the CBS Television Network on June 15, 1969, as a summer replacement series for the SMOTHERS BROTHERS COMEDY HOUR. HEE HAW was such a resounding success CBS slated the series for mid-season debut and as they say, the rest is history. From December 17, 1969 thorough December 27, 1997, HEE HAW shows were a weekly event in American households. A total of 585 one-hour shows were taped in Nashville, Tennessee, initially in 1969 at the CBS affiliate WLAC-TV (now WTVF-TV) and then moving to the Opryland...

    Near the end of Dean Martin's variety show in 1973-74, the formula evolved into a series of celebrity roasts. The show was cancelled in '74, but NBC decided to go with the 'Dean Martin Celebrity Roast' for a series of TV specials from 1974-84. Martin and a panel of longtime celeb buds roasted: Hugh Hefner, Ed McMahon, William Conrad, Kirk Douglas, Bette Davis, Barry Goldwater, Johnny Carson, Wilt Chamberlain, Hubert Humphrey, Carroll O'Connor, Monty Hall, Jack Klugman & Tony Randall, Zsa Zsa Gabor, Leo Durocher, Truman Capote, Don Rickles, Ralph Nader, Jack Benny, Redd Foxx, Bobby Riggs, George Washington, Dan...

    Bin Laden was killed by the US Navy Seal on Sunday. While most part of the world is celebrating, NMA has made an animation to portray what had happened during the siege and what happens to him after his death. Donald Trump was kicked off the air on Sunday to make way for some important news from President Barack Obama. Obama announced that US Navy Seals had located 9/11 mastermind Osama bin Laden at a large residential compound in a Pakistan neighborhood. Pakistan claimed its intelligence agents were involved in the operation. Bin Laden reportedly resisted capture. US forces recovered...

Good lord. I almost feel sorry for her. Almost. In a concession to the inevitability of the outcome, the Kloppenburg camp compromised late this afternoon and agreed with Prosser’s team to hold a hand recount in only 31 counties, where the voting machines are older and therefore theoretically more prone to error. It won’t matter, but they’re deep into face-saving mode here so let’s get on with it.

    Tina Fey may have been the darling of the left for her Emmy-winning impersonations of Sarah Palin on “Saturday Night Live.” But the comedic actress-director is now expressing regrets about her Palin pokes in her new book, “Bossypants.” As a matter of fact, Fey suspects that mimicking the former Alaska governor may have hurt the ratings of her NBC sitcom, “30 Rock.” “Some may argue that exploiting Governor Palin and her family helped bring attention to my low-rated TV show,” Fey writes in an excerpt published in USA Today. “I am proud to say you are wrong.

    With R-rated romantic comedies featuring such wholesome themes as casual sex among acquaintances, marital infidelity, oral sex jokes, friends with benefits, and random hooking up, the Hollywood assault on America's traditional values is alive and well. 2011 is the unofficial year of the raunchy Hollywood movie in which loyalty, sexual self-control, and marital commitment are fodder for comedy and where the idea of f**k buddies reigns supreme. "Love and Other Drugs," "No Strings Attached," "Hall Pass," and "Friends with Benefits" are four Hollywood creations in late 2010 and early 2011 in which attractive 20-somethings were cast as glorified sluts and...

Rod Quantock says the art of making people laugh is part of Melbourne's identity, but global warming could see off the fun. "Because of climate change, in 25 years, we won't have a comedy festival," Quantock said. "The money that we need for comedy festival will be needed for solving the problems of the next cyclone or the next bushfire or the next flood." Quantock was joined by 24 other comedians for the launch of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival's 25th anniversary at...

    2002’s Undercover Brother looked primed to make comic and consummate scene-stealer Eddie Griffin a bona fide movie star. The film was a commercial and critical success, but the expected sequels have not been forthcoming and Griffin has spent the ensuing years alternating between stand-up comedy and small but memorable roles in flashy fare like Norbit. Griffin is no stranger to bit parts: He made his film debut as “Gas Station Attendent” in manager/mentor Andrew “Dice” Clay’s concert film Dice Rules before playing characters like “Ventriloquist” in The Five Heartbeats, “Messenger” in Brain Donors and, of course, “Guest at Kid’s Bachelor...

    "Most states don't end in the letter 'A'..." Surrealist comedian Emo Phillips (dob 2.08.56) is an entertainer and comedian originating from the Chicago suburb of Downers Grove, Illinois. The highly unique brand of self-deprecating stand up comedy that made him famous is often built upon the paraprosdokians and garden path sentences spoken in a wandering falsetto tone. It's been said that the wide-eyed, confused, and childlike delivery is employed to invoke the 'wisdom of children' or the idiot savant... Philips has recorded three comedy albums, including E=mo², which won the 1985 New Music Award for best comedy album. It was...

    "Yeah, it's a small world... but I wouldn't want to paint it" Steven Wright -dob 12.06.55- is an American comedian, actor and writer. Widely known for a distinct lethargic voice and deadpan delivery in a droning monotone, the highly-original style of humor centers on ironic, philosophical, and even nonsensical jokes and one-liners with often bizarre, contrived situations. His early career as a Boston-area stand up comedian working primarily two clubs eventually landed him appearances on both the Carson and Letterman shows by 1982.  Wright's unique act went over huge in the new-wave 80s, and he was repeatedly asked back on. By 1985,...

    Ricky Gervais Was Only as Mean as We’d Hoped He'd Be It was such a refreshing treat watching Ricky Gervais go knives out during last year's Golden Globes, attacking the likes of Mel Gibson, Angelina Jolie and Sir Paul McCartney. Honestly, he didn’t say anything any worse then what is said by millions of viewers on their couches, but Ricky was in the room, looking right at his victims. It was a rush. So when it was announced that Gervais would be coming back for more, the conversation naturally turned to, “Can he top last year’s performance?” The press (guilty)...

    "I warned them." Returning Golden Globes host Ricky Gervais did indeed let it be known that he wasn't going to hold back in skewering Hollywood's most famous celebrities. And, in what will undoubtedly be his last hosting gig for the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (and, who knows, maybe any Stateside awards) he didn't disappoint. But in the process of making searingly funny jokes at more than just the obvious targets (Charlie Sheen, Mel Gibson, the HFPA itself), the heat he put into the punch lines might have made him more of the story than the actual winners. And yet, it...

    While recently watching the Coen brothers' new movie, "True Grit," I thought of how the story of a 14-year-old girl functioning in a world of rough and ruthless men conforms to the longstanding American myth of the pioneer woman - a myth that is especially relevant today, in the wake of congressional legislation that would have perished without a woman's strong leadership. American women were central to pushing the country westward and managing frontier towns of men who would've been happy drinking, shooting and killing each other if the female desire for order and tranquility had not been imposed upon...

    Apparently some lies are good, and some are bad. The trick is to know which is which. Dogs and other “less than human” critters probably don’t lie. People are different. They can and do lie, frequently. It is said that George “Cherry Tree” Washington never told a lie. If so, he must have been a disagreeable chap with few friends. “Do you think I’m fat, George?” “Yes, dear.” Polite people generally don’t say that sort of thing, even if they have to lie (or fake a coughing fit) to avoid it. In recent years, the concept of polite lies has...

    TEHRAN -- Film producer Jahangir Kowsari believes Iranian comedy movies produced for the home entertainment network ruin the culture of the country, undermining Iran’s cinema in the world. “Producing such comedy movies should be halted for they are culturally destructive,” he told the Persian service of IRNA. Over the past few years, movies mostly centering on comic topics have been produced for the home entertainment network. These movies are of low quality with shallow topics but sell well in the market place. “These productions follow the same pattern as Iranian films produced in 1970’s.

    06/07/2010 11:56:20 PM PDT · by raccoonradio · 101 replies · 126+ views
    The novelty tunes, wacky sounds, comedy bits and parody songs, all hosted by one crazy "doctor," has come to an end. This weekend is the final airing for the syndicated "Dr. Demento Show." The show's syndicator, Talonian Productions -- which is owned by Dr. Demento -- has told the affiliates that this is the end. In a simple email to its few remaining stations, the email stated "Dr. Demento and his management have decided to no longer offer The Dr. Demento Show on terrestrial radio stations and to concentrate on offering the show via internet streaming only." The Dr. Demento...

    Around the same time they were caving in to pressure to delete all Mohammed references from an episode of "South Park," the geniuses at Comedy Central posted an online video game containing truly staggering anti-Semitic images. This abomination was originally called "I.S.R.A.E.L. Attack!" due to the lead character being a murderous robot named "I.S.R.A.E.L." -- "Intelligent Smart Robot Animation Eraser." As the game opens, the villain says, "You lied to me, Jew Producer"...

    TFP Student Action is urging Comedy Central to cancel the production of a new cartoon series called JC that mocks Our Lord Jesus Christ. According to press reports, Comedy Central writers are describing the new series JC as “a playful take on religion and society with a sprinkle of dumb.” For example, God the Father is shown as someone who is lazy, plays video games and neglects his son. In turn, Jesus is distant from his powerful and lazy father, and tries to become a regular guy in New York City. Since final approval at Comedy Central for JC is...

    Baltimore Sun: It's not even that the terrorists have won, it's that wannabe terrorists have won. A group called Revolution Muslim, which by most accounts seems less a terrorist cell than, metaphorically speaking, a couple of guys living in their parents' basements, managed to scare Comedy Central this week into censoring South Park for mocking their religion, or rather, the ban in some quarters of depictions of the prophet Muhammed. The Anti-Defamation League, which has tracked the New York-based Revolution Muslim, says the group has no more than about a dozen members, is known mainly for spouting anti-Semitism, handing...
