The Internet's Got Tracy Morgan Goin' Nuts

| 2 comments

This is amazing and delightful, and I can only thank Amelie Gillette for bringing it to the attention of the American People.

The host of the show does a great job, I think, in keeping it together while the behind the camera people laugh uproariously.

Does anyone still have that MP3 of Tracy going crazy on morning radio for like 20 minutes straight? I think I posted it here once, but I lost it.

The Old Negro Space Program

| 0 comments

Thanks to the CC Insider for reminding me of this old chestnut: The Old Negro Space Program. And hey, director Andy Bobrow, who once let us use this film in a fundraising show in Santa Cruz, has a blog, which features great stuff like this post: "What would Jack Bauer do?"

Wayne's World

I watched Wayne's World recently. Man, that's a fucking hilarious movie.

Above: the sorry fate of Mr. Doughnut-Head Man.

Podcast: Entertaining with Amy Sedaris and Jimmy Carr

Show: 
Bullseye

On this week's show, we entertain two wonderful (and entertaining) guests.

Jimmy Carr is one of the UK's most popular standup comics. Here in the US, he's hosted the game show Distraction on Comedy Central and appeared on Late Night and The Tonight Show. His new book, written with his long-time friend Lucy Greeves, is "Only Joking: What's So Funny About Making People Laugh?"

Then we talk with Amy Sedaris. She's a rabbit lover and taxidermied squirrel owner, as well as the author of "I Like You: Hospitality Under the Influence." The book provides domestic advice of many types, ranging from recipes to costumes to how to make fake food out of felt.

Please share your thoughts on the show in the comments section!

Andy Barker: PI

| 4 comments

NBC is previewing four full episodes of Andy Barker: PI, their new series with Andy Richter (and Arrested Development's Tony Hale).

I watched one. It didn't make a huge impression on me, but pilots rarely do. The bad news is that it's grabbing 30 Rock's timeslot... and with Scrubs, My Name is Earl and The Office looking pretty secure, it may be one or the other.
