A Nation of Comedians?

"If Jesus Christ were to come back today, people would not crucify him. They would ask him to dinner, hear what he had to say, and then make fun of it." -Thomas Carlyle (1795-1881) * * * If Carlyle thought we were wallowing in self-satisfied snarky humor back in the mid-19th century, he would positively flip his powdered wig over what's available on cable TV today. If I see one more slap-stick impersonation of Donald Trump, one more comedian doing his version of Trump's pomposity, or one more groaning send-up of Trump's speechifying, I'm going flip my wig. In no way is this to suggest humor is unworthy of us, or is inappropriate when applied to politics. No one is advocating the abolition of political humor, or urging people to take to the streets in protest of it. Humor is good; humor is salutary, ...

The Seduction of Lesbian Vampires or How I Learned to Stop Stressing And Love the Red Carpet
Huffington Post - 9 months
Call me crazy but I really hate walking the red carpet at the Emmy's or even worse, the Academy Awards. I walked it once and swore I'd never do it again (unless, of course, I'd been nominated for something. But what were the chances of that?) I always feel under-dressed, under-coifed and badly shoed with whatever choices I hobble together from the closet of "what could have been and never was." But much worse, I can't stand the way the people both on the red carpet and on the outside of the barriers stare at me wondering who the hell I am and how did I sneak in? Which is why I again agreed to go to another red carpet event in Los Angeles in April. (Apparently, I'm a glutton for punishment.) Something about this particular red carpet told me, however, it might be different this time. This was a movie premiere. About lesbian vampires. Set in 1980's Los Angeles. With a private detective named Dic, filmed like a 40's film noir. And it was a midnight movie. A midnight movie mad ...

Comedy Central Announces Upcoming Roast of Stephen Hawking
Huffington Post - over 3 years
With the success of past Comedy Central roasts of James Franco and Roseanne Barr, the Viacom basic cable network announced Monday it will be continuing its series with Comedy Central's Roast of Stephen Hawking set to air in early October. Hawking, the former Lucasian Professor of Mathematics, and Director of Research at the Centre for Theoretical Cosmology at the University of Cambridge, had long been rumored to be on the network's short-list of candidates, and reportedly easily drew a host of top celebrity roasters, including former Whose Line Is It Anyway? star Wayne Brady, and former rapper and timepiece Flavor Flav. Appearing at a press event in Hollywood Tuesday, Roast mainstay comedian Jeffrey Ross spoke excitedly about last week's live taping. "You know, we were pretty much out of racist and sexist and homophobic jokes after Franco's roast, so given that Hawking's got ALS and is entirely paralyzed, you're going to hear a lot of great new material." Ross went on to suggest he' ...

Andy Dick continued his attempts to reform his public image by appearing on "Celebrity Wife Swap." The mother of his child, Lina, swapped places with Lorenzo Lamas' wife, Shawna. And while it proved a positive and eye-opening experience for the women, it was perhaps even more important for the men. At the group meeting that closes the hour, Andy called out the fact that Shawna doesn't attend red carpet events with her husband. She said that she doesn't want to be associated with Lorenzo's womanizer image. While talking about it, Lorenzo started to tear up, which got Andy emotional as well. “I didn’t know it was something that would hurt him I guess," Shawna admitted. “Well, he wouldn’t say it," Andy said. After their discussion, Shawna said that she plans to walk a red carpet with Lorenzo at an upcoming event.

The competition on "Dancing with the Stars" is heating up now that it's down to just eight couples, and everyone is bringing their A game.

Who Went Home On 'DWTS'?
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
The "DWTS" results are in and Lisa Vanderpump has been eliminated. It came down to Lisa and Victor Ortiz. The professional boxer and his partner Lindsay Arnold's paso doble to Queen's "We Will Rock You" wasn't received too well by the judges, but the "Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills" star's cha-cha-cha wound up with the lowest score. Considering the week Lisa has had, the "DWTS" results likely didn't come as a surprise. Week 4 saw the "Dancing With The Stars" contestants perform a dance in honor of the best year of their lives and their routine had to include a solo portion. Lisa, who honored the year her daughter Pandora got married, had fainted during rehearsals due to exhaustion and a viral infection earlier in the week and almost didn't dance at all on Monday night. She powered through, but due to lack of practice, Lisa and Gleb found themselves at the bottom of the leaderboard with a score of 18. "It's been six long weeks, I have to say.
