posted by Rosario Edwards February 28, 2017

Video: Melissa McCarthy Delivers Stellar Sean Spicer Impersonation on ‘SNL’

posted by Oscar February 5, 2017

In what may be the biggest thing to come out of this weekend (yeah, I know the Super Bowl is also taking place), Melissa McCarthy put on one hell of a hilarious performance in a skit where she impersonated the current White House Press Secretary, Sean Spicer.

In this short time since he took the position, Spicer has been recognized for losing his cool a bit in his attempt to deliver Trump’s administration’s latest alternative facts, and McCarthy expertly tapped into that for her portrayal. From swallowing gum to defensive responses to lashing out against the reporter’s questions, Melissa McCarthy is literally-laugh-out-loud hilarious in this.

Check it out above.

Video: See Triumph Roast People at Trump’s Inauguration

posted by Oscar January 24, 2017

In this time of absurdity, there’s no one (thing?) better to turn to than Triumph the insult Comic Dog to take things to a whole other level. Triumph was one of the few people at Trump’s inauguration and while there he proceeded to roast and troll the attendees. The jokes were hilarious with Triumph tackling all things surrounding the Donald including Melania, the overly white crowd, a Latino supporter, Mike Pence, and of course Russia.

Some of the jokes are pretty NSFW, so if you’re catching this in a public space put your headphones on!

Video: See Aziz Ansari Host ‘Saturday Night Live’

posted by Oscar January 22, 2017

Aziz Ansari was last night’s host of Saturday Night Live, featuring Big Sean as the musical guest. Anzari’s opening monologue focused on the biggest news in the country: Trump’s swearing in to the highest position in the country.

Aziz joked about Trump being “basically the Chris Brown of politics,” while adding “and ‘Make America Great Again’ is his ‘These Hoes Ain’t Loyal’” because some supporters pick and choose what aspects of Trump they actually acknowledge to support. He also touched on how certain people should go back to hiding their racism, and finding redeeming factors to George W. Bush’s speech after 9/11.

Check that out above and hit the jump to find Ansari in skits about La La Land and riding an Uber. Continue Reading

You read that right! That headline is not clickbait… Netflix took to their social accounts to announce that they will be releasing three new comedy specials by the one and only, Dave Chappelle. The release dates for these are yet to be announced, as all we get with the news was a “coming soon.”

According to Pitchfork, Chappelle’s follow-ups to 2004’s Dave Chappelle: For What It’s Worth will include an original set filmed exclusively for Netflix and two specials drawn from “Chappelle’s personal comedy vault,” which were filmed at Austin City Limits Live and the Hollywood Paladium.

Dave Chappelle made his return to the mainstream earlier this month as the host of Saturday Night Live, which included over 10 minutes of stand-up. See that here.

Video: See The Best Moments of Dave Chappelle on ‘SNL’

posted by Oscar November 13, 2016

Dave Chappelle returned to mainstream TV last night as the guest host of Saturday Night Live. The comic genius was host of SNL for his very first time, and the stand-up legend kicked things off with a 10 minute monologue doing what he does best. The opening monologue largely focused on Donald Trump being elected president of our country, delivering the line “We’ve actually elected an internet troll as our president.” Chappelle also talked about why he’s going to ride out this Trump presidency with the benefit being a rich man considering the tax cuts coming his way. But it wasn’t all jokes, as Chappelle concluded his monologue talking about how Obama did a good job as leader of the free world and then shared a bit of history of African Americans and their relationship with the White House prior to Obama’s presidency. Finally, he left us with these sobering lines: “I’m wishing Donald Trump luck. And I’m going to give him a chance. And we the historically disenfranchised demand that he gives us one too.”

The rest of the show was highlighted by Chappelle reviving some of his best Chappelle’s Show characters in a The Walking Dead skit featuring Tyrone Biggums, Lil’ Jon, Clayton Bigsby, and Silky Johnson recreating the famous Negan scene. It contains spoilers!! See more below Continue Reading
