Pete Davidson, Claire Foy get into royal food fight in SNL promo (Video)

Thu, 11/29/2018 - 09:00

Saturday Night Live released their promo for this week’s show with guest host Claire Foy—and it gets messy.

In the promo, Pete Davidson tells The Crown star that there is an SNL tradition that she needs to participate in before hosting the show. The video then cuts to a slow-motion food fight with flirty lighting. Musical guest Anderson .Paak’s new song Tints (featuring Kendrick Lamar) plays in the background. The Golden Globe winner gets silly as she pelts Davidson with everything from spaghetti to chocolate milk. Davidson strikes back handfuls of cake and scrambled eggs.

The best moment of the promo comes when the pint-sized Foy tosses an entire pizza at Davidson like a frisbee, forcing him to fall to the ground. The fun of the food fight quickly stops when the two are caught by castmember Heidi Gardner.

This is Claire Foy’s first time hosting SNL. After playing Queen Elizabeth II in the first two seasons of the Crown, Foy shifted to film. She stars in two movies that are out now, First Man and The Girl in the Spider’s Web. She also starred in the cult horror film Unsane earlier this year. This weekend we will see if she also shines in comedy.

Netflix drops Fuller House season 4 trailer (Video)

Wed, 11/28/2018 - 16:30

Fuller House is coming back home to Netflix for a fourth season on December 14. Yes, that show is still pumping out new episodes starring Jodie Sweetin, Andrea Barber, and Candace Cameron-Bure. The newest trailer for the fourth season dropped on Tuesday and it fills viewers in on what to expect after a year away. It packs Holiday cheer, rekindled relationships, baby bumps, many audiences “woooooooos,” and a musical number all into 90 seconds of Tanner family-filled chaos.

Based on the trailer, fans of the Full House reboot can expect that the relationship between D.J. and Steve—her on-again/off-again love interest—to be a major focus this season. However, a new/old relationship will also take center stage as well. Last season, Kimmy Gibbler agreed to be Stephanie’s surrogate and this year we will see the pair’s relationship change in another major way when Stephanie finally refers to Kimmy as a friend. “I’ve waited 30 years to hear that,” Kimmy says. Jesus, has this franchise been around for that long?

There will obviously be a healthy dose of all the fan favorites such as Bob Saget, Dave Coulier, and John Stamos, who must have a hideous painted portrait of himself stuffed in an attic somewhere.

Check out the full trailer below!

Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert let f-bombs fly in Late Show interview (Video)

Wed, 11/28/2018 - 14:45

Stephen Colbert was joined by Jon Stewart for a pre-recorded segment of Late Show. Colbert started the show announcing that he was still on Thanksgiving break, “I think in the Carribean.” He then introduces the special episode’s format: his friends and celebrity guests will turn the tables to interview him.

While the show features several celebrity guest hosts to grill Colbert “in the hot seat” such as Neil Degrasse Tyson and Kerry Washington, the opening interview with Stewart is the most memorable. Stewart walks onto the set after the intro, sits at the desk, and says, “I am your host Jon Stewart. I haven’t said that in a while.” Stewart introduces the former Colbert Report star and the two longtime friends share a hug on stage.

Stewart begins the interview, “Who the fuck do you think you are?” Their back and forth feels like watching two comedians riff backstage after a show. Most of what comes out of the two veteran TV hosts’ mouth is less than subtle jabs and sarcastic asides, but the chemistry and shared history between the two is palpable.

The two first met on a Comedy Central conference call before Stewart even took over The Daily Show. Colbert would go on to be a fake news correspondent on Stewart’s Daily Show for six years before starring on his own spin-off The Colbert Report.

The two talk about their old days on The Daily Show and the times that they have met now-President Donald Trump. Stewart describes their work in satirical news over the years as “turd mining” and even says, “I have gotten out of the turd mining business.”

More F-Bombs are dropped than the average late night interview and you can watch them all here:

Aziz Ansari announces first tour dates since Babe.net exposé

Wed, 11/28/2018 - 13:53

Aziz Ansari is back, it seems. Knowing you can’t be more hated in stand-up comedy right now than Bill Cosby or Louis C.K., the embarrassed comedy star took to social media to announce his Road to Nowhere stand-up tour. Earlier this year, Ansari was exposed as, at best, a really bad first date in a Babe.net exposé.

Ansari’s sexual misconduct controversy made waves in the news cycle back in January, but was not met with nearly as much rage or ire as other fallen male figures have received. In the Babe.net story, a young woman describes an awful first date with a selfish, poon-hungry celebrity that some consider to be on the wrong side of sexual assault. The Masters of None star claims to have remembered the night differently.

No one really seems to know what to do with Ansari. Was it sexual assault? Was it clueless behavior? Was it just a bad date with less-than-perfect people? It should be noted that Ansari has written a book on dating called Modern Romance, which greatly covered the topics of consent and feminism.

The discussion over who is ‘allowed’ to come back and when has been going on in the comedy community since Louis C.K.—who admitted to repeated cases of workplace sexual harassment and masturbating in front of two female comedians in a hotel room at a comedy festival—has been welcomed back by comedy clubs all over New York City. Ansari’s situation landed him in a gray area between that clueless high school boy who was too horny to read nonverbals and a monster like Harvey Weinstein. As such, he has laid low but has not been banished to the comfy entertainment wilderness to which many sexual abusers in the industry have retired. The Parks and Recreation alum, with 10.5 million Twitter followers, will likely do well with ticket sales which have sadly become the litmus test for who’s in and who’s out after claims of sexual assault.

The Road to Nowhere tour commences in Boston in February. Tickets go on sale Friday, November 30 at noon, but fans who register on his website Wednesday will receive 10% off.

Amy Schumer shares pregnancy struggles on Instagram in heartfelt post

Wed, 11/28/2018 - 13:20

Amy Schumer posted a new video about her pregnancy on Instagram, which is as gross as it is unflinchingly real. The Trainwreck star announced the pregnancy last month.

— Amy Schumer (@amyschumer) October 23, 2018

Since then, Schumer hasn’t been shy posting about her impending firstborn. She often shows off her bump in Instagram posts and tweets. The comedian seems to be excited about expecting her first child with husband Chris Fischer, but being a pregnant stand-up isn’t easy.

Last night, Schumer uploaded a video taken on the way to a show at the Tarrytown Music Hall. In the video, she continuously vomits while struggling to be comfortable in the passenger seat of the car. The video is fairly graphic and even Schumer warns in the post’s caption, “Turn sound off if you have a weak stomach.” She pairs the video with a photo of her at the end of her set at the New York State hall. In the photo, she wears an oversized shirt with grey sweats, a trashcan also appears on stage as the crowd gives her a standing ovation.

After she describes the harrowing ride to the venue, Schumer writes in the caption, “I love doing stand-up more than anything and I hate cancelling [sic] shows. I have to postpone some until I feel human again. But i [sic] will make up these dates and we will have a great time.” She continues, “I’m so proud of my stand up right now and can’t wait to share it. Thanks to the amazing crowd tonight for being so warm and such great laughers and for being cool with my sweatpants and slippers on stage.”

In the caption, she also teases a documentary in the works which will feature her recent performances as well as the struggle she is currently facing on her way to motherhood. The Inside Amy Schumer creator’s pregnancy has been particularly rocky because of a condition called hyperemesis gravidarum. The condition is akin to extreme morning sickness and is categorized by severe nausea, vomiting, weight loss, and electrolyte disturbance. Rest and dietary changes are currently the only treatment for the condition that, if unchecked, can result in hospitalization and intravenous nutrition.

She ends the post with a political message, not unlike her pregnancy announcement. She writes, “I’m grateful I have access to healthcare, as we all should have. But I guess what I’m really saying is Fuck Hyde-Smith and anyone who voted for her” in reference to Republican senator Cindy Hyde-Smith who kept her seat after last night’s runoff election in Mississippi. She ends by saying, “My feelings on her are best expressed by the above video. And I don’t usually agree with speaking ill of crackheads, but she has a crackhead looking mouth. Tiny racist teeth.”

Turn sound off if you have a weak stomach. This was my ride to my show at @tarrytownmusichall tonight and a picture from the end of my set. I love doing stand-up more than anything and I hate cancelling shows. I have to postpone some until I feel human again. But i will make up these dates and we will have a great time. I’m so proud of my stand up right now and can’t wait to share it. Thanks to the amazing crowd tonight for being so warm and such great laughers and for being cool with my sweatpants and slippers on stage. Shots by @marcusrussellprice we are shooting a doc of me these past few months leading up to a special Im filming and you will see that I’m strugglin right now. But I’m so grateful and excited to be a mom. I’m grateful I have access to healthcare, as we all should have. But I guess what I’m really saying is Fuck Hyde-Smith and anyone who voted for her. My feelings on her are best expressed by the above video. And I don’t usually agree with speaking ill of crackheads, but she has a crackhead looking mouth. Tiny racist teeth. Also the MLB commissioner donated the max he could to her confederate ass campaign and that was after her crack mouth said she would attend a public hanging. #crackmouth #tinyracistteeth #hyperemesisgravidarum

Editor’s Note: MLB commissioner Rob Manfred did not personally donate to her campaign. The MLB’s PAC donated to Hyde-Smith’s campaign and then asked for the donation to be returned following her controversial statement.
