    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...
  • What’s Wrong with Making Future Generations Pay for our Debt?

    Pajamas Media ^ | August 6, 2011 | Frank J. Fleming
    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
  • Happy 42nd Anniversary, Hee Haw (my title)

    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...

    To cleanse the palate, via the MacIver Institute and Breitbart, count it off yourself. The fateful question is posed at around 1:40; not until 1:53 does the deafening silence finally end. 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.

    A Political Look at Hollywood ^ | 4/05/2001 | James Hirsen
    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. My TV show...

    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...

    "Sold my last house for $85,000... my landlord was real upset about that" Garry Shandling (11.29.1949) is an American comedian, actor and writer best known for his work in It's Garry Shandling's Show and The Larry Sanders Show. Born into a middle-class Jewish family in Chicago, Shandling was then raised in Tuscon, AZ. Later as a young adult he moved-on to LA, starting out a creative career at an ad agency, writing scripts.  Garry soon broke into TV by successfully submitting an unsolicited script for a Sanford and Son episode (this became the one where Fred turns his junkyard into a Japanese restaurant lol). He came...

    "This stammer got me a home in Beverly Hills...I'm not about to screw with it now!" Bob Newhart (Oak Park, Illinois 9.25.1929) is an American comedian, author, and TV/film actor known for a deadpan style and trademark stammering and hesitant delivery. His hugely successful career spans over four decades, and the man is nothing less than an American comedy legend... Bob Newhart's career was launched by his 1960 comedy album The Button-Down Mind of Bob Newhart -which acutally went to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and remains to this day the 20th best-selling LP of any kind... in history.  Not...

    Climate change could rob Melbourne of its beloved comedy festival, one of Australia's best-known stand-up comedians says. 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...

    A.V. Club Milwaukee ^ | February 25, 2011 | Nathan Rabin
    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,...

    This video contains the best counter-argument I've seen to the liberals' claim that "there has never been a ticking timebomb scenario in real life," something they always say when the subject of interrogation comes up. Seeing that argument torn down in a humorous fashion, along with other liberal fallacies about diplomacy, makes it well worth seeing. Watch the video
