Jon Stewart explains why he quit The Daily Show
Yahoo News - almost 2 years
It’s not easy to imagine Comedy Central’s The Daily Show without Jon Stewart at the helm. This is undoubtedly why responses have been so muted to the network’s announcement that a relatively unknown contributor Trevor Noah will replace Stewart as the show’s host. Of course, we can recall similar responses when Comedy Central announced that The Daily Show host Craig Kilborn would be replaced by a young comedian named Jon Stewart about 16 years ago. Since Stewart first announced that he would be retiring as The Daily Show’s host, one question has persisted: why? Now, Stewart finally explained exactly why he’s moving on in a recent interview.

Amanda Bynes Was Totally Normal In Old Interview And Very First Commercial
Business Insider - over 3 years
Before Amanda Bynes was simply known for her crazy Twitter rants, the 27-year-old was just a normal teenager — albeit on a hit Nickelodeon show. In a 2003 interview with Craig Kilborn, a 17-year-old Bynes talks about wanting a BMW when she turned 16 but instead getting a Honda Accord from her parents. She wasn't pleased. Perhaps it explains this tweet bashing her dad on Father's Day?  But for the most part, Bynes was completely lucid during the interview, funny, mature and even well-spoken. A far cry from her behavior these days. Although, Kilborn does ask the starlet, "You're high on life, aren't you? Watch the barely recognizable Bynes in the interview below.  In the above interview, Bynes mentions her first acting gig was starring in a Buncha Crunch commercial at age seven.

Jon Hotchkiss: 6 Vital Lesson I Learned About Life While Writing Thousands of Jokes for TV
Huffington Post - about 4 years
#6. YOU GOTTA DANCE WITH WHAT BRUNG YA 15 years ago, while writing jokes on Politically Incorrect, I decided to dress the same way every day: white t-shirt, baseball hat, jeans. And no, I was not on meth. There were several reasons: • I was born without the gene for style. It's disease that affects all Jewish boys. If you don't count Isaac Mizrahi and Andy Cohen. • Having a predetermined uniform protects me from looking stupid. Like showing up to a funeral in baggy MC Hammer pants. You know, unless I've been hired to do back up dancing. • Finally, I realized that human decision making prowess is a lot like gas in your car, in that over the course of the day, our ability to make good decisions is depleted based on how many decisions we made previously. So, if I cut down on the early day decisions, I would have enough mental reserves (or gas) to make better decisions at the end of the day. Clothes do not make you who you are. Your actions do. Unless you're on th ...

Jon Hotchkiss: I Made a Six-Hour TV Series in My Garage
Huffington Post - about 4 years
My name is Jon Hotchkiss and I make TV for a living. In fact, I created, wrote, produced and edited a new six-hour TV series... in the garage at my home. It's called: This vs That and our motto is: No bias. No bullshit. Just science, fact and funny. But, first. I began my career as a writer on Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher, where I spent four years. As a result, I get one question over and over about Bill: "Is he as handsome in person as he is on TV?" Although I tell them "Yes," the real answer is: "Even more so." Since then, I've had jobs I loved: running Bullshit with Penn & Teller, creating/running the TLC series, Invasion of the Christmas Lights, creating/running the NBC series, My Dad is Better Than Your Dad and creating/running the series The Truth About Sex for Playboy TV. I've made family shows... and naked ones. The naked ones don't pay as well. On the upside is that they're more fun. Perhaps less so for my wife. My girlfriend, however, thinks they'r ...

Denver Comic Chuck Roy Talks 'Dirty Christmas Show'
Huffington Post - over 4 years
'Tis the season for eggnog, mistletoe and raunchy jokes about Santa Claus and Frosty the Snowman. Chuck Roy is a Denver comedy staple, regularly hosting shows at Comedy Works, and is back this holiday season with his "Dirty Christmas Show," one of the most fun, hilarious (and dirty, filthy dirty) comedy shows of the year selling out the last two years. Roy recently chatted with The Huffington Post about Denver's booming comedy scene, his annual dirty Christmas show and told a couple of his favorite dirty holiday jokes while he was at it (you've been warned). Who are you? I’m Chuck Roy. How long have you been a stand-up comic in Denver? Since September 15, 1999. When I checked into the hotel the clerk gave me tickets to the Rockies game. I told him I had a show at 8 p.m. He said, “I think you can do both.” I caught a buzz off half of a Coors Light and thought, “I’m moving to Denver.” What drew you to stand-up comedy as a career? And what was the moment t ...
