Why is Glenn Beck doing comedy tours? - the comic's comic
Perhaps you remember Glenn Beck from the talk radio or from CNN Headline News, but now that he's the new darling of FOX News, Beck has a higher profile among media observers. And so it is that I'm learning about his proclivity for performing some sort of folksy one-man show stand-up type routine to conservative theatergoers when he's not on the air. Here's the AP report from Sunday announcing Glenn Beck's June 2009 tour, with shows in Denver, Phoenix, San Diego, Kansas City, Houston and Richmond... [Read More]

"Sit Down, Shut Up" Promo Battle Comparison
FOX has launched a new series of promotions for the upcoming animated comedy, Sit Down, Shut Up, which debuts April 19 in the network's Sunday animation block. The promos play up the reunion of Arrested Development cast members Jason Bateman and Will Arnett, which is good for all of the people who loved that sitcom but also odd because FOX didn't really stand by that award-winning show, did it now? Also odd, the promos don't even really talk about what Sit Down, Shut Up is about. Does it matter?... [Read More]

Down The Foxhole: F**K THE PUPPETS
I think it's important that the first thing I say is this is not about Jeff Dunham. I have nothing against Jeff. I'm actually a fan of Jeff as a man. A hu-man. Jeff knows not what he does at this point. My mission is to simply stop the puppets that seem to be controlling him. We have all done things in life that we are not proud of. I too have fallen victim to that voice in my head that says, "just do it." What can it hurt in the long run? But when that voice is being given to puppets, and we ca... [Read More]
