Amy and Rachel Dratch say a prayer before crafting in an At Home With Amy Sedaris exclusive

The A.V. Club’s Danette Chavez recommends settling down with At Home With Amy Sedaris, truTV’s new series blending Sedaris’ talents as a comedian and a slightly demented domestic goddess that Chavez calls “cozy and kooky, with a side of depravity.” Well, not if Rachel Dratch, who guest stars as uptight Bible thumper…

Dacre Montgomery’s uninhibited Stranger Things audition tape shows he was born to play Billy

Even though the character he plays is pretty horrible, it’s safe to say that Dacre Montgomery is a runaway hit as Billy, Hawkins, Indiana’s newest bad boy (take a seat, Steve) in the second season of Stranger Things. He really doesn’t have that many pre-Stranger Things credits—except for playing the Red Ranger in the

Milo Yiannopoulos loses longtime benefactor and new Daily Caller job 

After losing his book deal and Breitbart job for appearing to condone pedophilia, Milo Yiannopoulos continued to try to peddle his alt-white propaganda anywhere he could, including at speaking engagements that were canceled before he even arrived. But despite recently losing the support of his longtime backer,…

Prepare to have a strong emotion about these damn animoji things

Apple’s very expensive and very contentious iPhone X came out last week, and, among its many vaunted new features, none has been more visible in the first couple days than the animoji. Those fantastic cameras and depth sensors crammed into the device’s top notch make its face-scanning Face ID technology possible, but…

Eric Andre's nearest comedic equivalent may be Bugs Bunny

Unlike previous attempts to take the late night talk show format and turn it on it’s ear, The Eric Andre Show uses that initial conceit to transport the audience into a waking nightmare where anything can and will happen. The titular host accomplishes this feat through pure, unblinking commitment to insanity, which…

Kanye West takes the stage for first time in almost a year

Following a brief hospitalization last fall that was, in part, due to some extensive touring behind The Life Of Pablo, Kanye West mostly retreated from public life. That’s not why he ended up sitting out Trump’s inauguration, exactly, but that probably worked out for the best since Ye is now firmly anti-Trump. West…

Woman loses her job for flipping off Trump motorcade, still has no regrets

A Virginia woman who flipped off Trump’s motorcade over Halloween weekend became a folk hero to many for that reflexive act of protest (and on a bike, no less). Many right-minded people wonder what they’d do if they came across the chief combover—call him out, suggest he get some sleep instead of tweeting late into…

Here's Finn Wolfhard, John Stamos, and "Weird Al" singing songs from Willy Wonka

Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowl is occasionally home to very unique and special performances, whether its a live concert from the Muppets, a celebration of the La La Land soundtrack, or something that unexpectedly becomes even more special in retrospect, like Tom Petty’s final concert. This weekend, a bunch of famous…

Will Ferrell reveals pitch for a scrapped Step Brothers sequel

Anyone who has ever watched TV has probably caught a showing of Step Brothers, Adam McKay’s 2008 comedy starring Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly as a pair of frustratingly immature step-siblings who veer wildly between being best friends and mortal enemies, and now Ferrell has shared a story pitch for where a possible

WME executive put on leave following Terry Crews harassment allegations

In early October, Terry Crews came forward with allegations that a “high level” Hollywood executive sexually harassed him last year by walking up to him at an event and grabbing his genitals. Crews didn’t name the man in question, but Variety says that he has recently been preparing to confirm that it was Adam Venit,…

Actor Harry Dreyfuss says Kevin Spacey groped him when he was 18

Harry Dreyfuss—an actor and writer, and the son of Oscar-winner Richard Dreyfuss—has added his name to the ever-growing list of young men accusing Kevin Spacey of groping or sexually assaulting them in their youths. Dreyfuss wrote about the incident, which took place when he was 18 and visiting his father while he…

Oh, cool, the White House is feuding with both Presidents Bush now, too

The Trump White House extended its low-key running feud with its former occupants to pretty much every living ex-president except Jimmy Carter today, thanks to a New York Times piece in which George H.W. Bush declared Trump a “blowhard,” and his son, George W. Bush, expressed his worries that he’d be the last…

Papa John’s has now been forced to tell racists not to eat its pizza

It’s never a good day in the life of an online brand when its PR spokesperson is forced to craft a statement ordering racists to stop eating or enjoying its pizza. And yet, thanks to a confluence of NFL protests, “alt-right” manipulation, and a bunch of boneheaded comments from its founder, low-rent pizza chain Papa…
