George Carlin riffs, after the jump.
Speaking of … Tonight, for the first time ever, the two Lionel Jeffersons, for the full hour. #kingsthings — Black Larry King (@BlackLarryKing) April 12, 2012
Musings from a real-life Doyle Harcavy (retired columnist for the Arlen Bystander): I suppose the people around your pools in Arizona have the same kind of discussions these days! The folks who go to Florida love the water. And those who choose…
Eddie Schweighardt, aka Greg the gay kid on “Curb Your Enthusiasm”:
Johnny Depp may have stopped making interesting movies but at least he’s a good sport. From Rickey Gervais’ new show, “Life’s Too Short”:
Fox has bought TWO new series featuring Russell Brand, the UK’s answer to Adam Sandler (or, as Heinrich suggests, the Brits’ idea of payback for Madonna). Besides an unscripted late night show on FX, Katy Perry’s husband has been tapped to appear in an animated comedy about himself. It’s written and produced by the team behind “Bob’s Burgers,” a show I’ve never read about, heard anyone discuss or watch. Not exactly buzzworthy, much like the network’s desperate attempt to bring back 2004 with an animated version of “Napoleon Dynamite.” I don’t have to watch “Allen Gregory” to know I don’t like a…
Is a hack who contends he isn’t. Ladies and gentleman, Garry Marshall, the man who introduced Robin Williams to a gullible public and director of such gems as “Runaway Bride,” “Exit to Eden,” “Valentine’s Day” and it’s follow-up, “New Year’s Eve”: In Marshall’s defense, he was a part of one of the smartest comedy scenes ever written, from “Lost in America.” Needless to say Marshall neither wrote or directed it.
Mary Hartman breaks up with Woody Allen.
A little carryover from the previous post but these clips, located after several futile searches, deserve to stand alone:
My favorite episode of “Extras,” in full:
An Australian talk show host interviews climate change denier and right-wing loon Lord Monckton as if he’s really Sacha Baron Cohen’s latest comedic creation.
The scores of promos for “Whitney” during last Sunday night’s Falcons game promised something awful. It delivered. Our heroine is rather less randy, and the central scene of the Whitney pilot concerns her effort to reheat a sex life that has reached a cryogenic temperature. To spice things up, Whitney gets herself a naughty nurse outfit, with the little white cap and frilly red knickers, and she surprises Alex with a frisky show of medical-care coquetry, pouting that he needs to check in for an appointment. Committing to the role-playing, she establishes that preliminaries will involve his filling out a lot of…
Not everyone was amused by Greg the flamboyant kid on “Curb”: Name: Stuffed Animal Date posted: 9/13/2011 4:42:08 PM Hometown: Kansas City Comment: I despise any kind of crude humor that sneers at Gay identity, but it really infuriates me when children are involved. Gay and Transgender kids catch holy Hell from other kids; they don’t need adults adding to their misery. I don’t care how ‘supportive’ Larry David is of Gay Rights, he needs to f*cking get a clue.
