Meet the cast of VH1′s “Best Week Ever” 2013 relaunch, learn about their best weeks ever (real and fantasy)

2013-vh1-bwe-bestweekever

After a three-year hiatus, Best Week Ever returns to VH1 tonight with a brand-new cast of comedians (no host this time around) to reflect upon the week that was in pop culture headlines.

The BWE VH1 Class of 2013: Michelle Buteau, Michael Che, Pat Dixon, Pete Lee, Jared Logan, Amanda Seales, Dan St. Germain, Nick Turner and Ali Wong. You'll also see additional comedians and pop-culture watchers pop up on your TV screens from week to week.

With the Golden Globes, Manti Te'o and Lance Armstrong, and the return of American Idol, it's certainly been a week full of worshiping false idols, with reality, lies and fantasies all rolled up into one week. You'll have to tune in tonight to see what BWE has to say about it.

But before talking about everyone else, I asked the new Best Week Ever comedians to tell us about themselves. What, so far, has been their best weeks ever? What, in their fantasy world, would be?

So let's meet the cast and find out!

Michelle Buteau

What was your Best Week Ever before this week? My best week ever before this is when Lenny Kravitz cut his dreads off & had a fro. That was so spiritual, I felt it.

What would your fantasy best week include, either for you personally or just for you to talk about on the TV? In my fantasy best week ever, I'd have bangs, be able to fit into American Apparel clothing, and everything I Tweeted would make people fart glitter and kiss gay unicorns. It's my fantasy. Don't judge.

What was your Best Week Ever before this week? My best week ever was the week of Hurricane Sandy. I had no electricity in my apartment, but I did my first late-night spot, was featured in the New York Times, and also discovered the joy of pooping to candlelight.

What is your fantasy for a best week ever, either for yourself personally or for a week of events to talk about on the TV? My fantasy of a best week ever is when I'm famous enough to be made fun of by a no name comedian on a VH1 talking-head show.

"This season's gonna gonna be great. The whole cast is funny. I am honored to be the black dude on the show. I look forward to parlaying this into a dating reality show a la Ray J and Flavor Flav."

What was your Best Week Ever before this week? My best week ever? It was in Italy. I went with the prettiest girl I've ever seen. I don't know if it was the beautiful warm weather, walking on the cobblestones in Rome or the $12 cones of gelato, but I felt her giving a little extra each night after we strolled back to our hotel room and turned out the light. It was over too fast. I mean the trip, not the sex. The sex was great not just for me but for her too. What...? you don't believe me? Ask her. I'm serious, fucking ask her. Fuck you!

What is your fantasy for a best week ever, either for yourself personally or for a week of events to talk about on the TV? My fantasy for a best week ever? I'd like to go to Italy, but this time maybe throw in a couple of three-ways. And we never went inside the Pantheon.

Pat Dixon also hosts The New York City Crime Report podcast.

What was your Best Week Ever before this week? The best week of my life is every week, because I have somehow managed to never have kids. But one of my favorite weeks ever was when I filmed my Comedy Central half-hour special. As comics, we spend so much time in our heads with self doubt, so having my comedy validated felt amazing.

What is your fantasy for a best week ever, either for yourself personally or for a week of events to talk about on the TV? The best week ever on Best Week Ever would be if somehow Honey Boo-Boo, Honey Boo-Boo's mom, the entire Kardashian family (including Bruce Jenner), Abby and Britney (TLC's Conjoined Twins), and Nicky Minaj...all decided to become contestants on The Bachelor. Oh, one more thing, 2 Chains is the Bachelor.

My personal best week ever would be if I could ever do comedy on David Letterman's show. I imagine that moment would feel like being inside the TV that raised me.

What was your Best Week Ever before this week? My Best Week Ever was when I went on a silent meditation retreat in Joshua Tree. It was very freeing to shut up for four days.

What is your fantasy for a best week ever, either for yourself personally or for a week of events to talk about on the TV? My fantasy for a best week ever, would be if the Kardashians all turned into super butch lesbians.

NickTurner

Nick Turner

What was your Best Week Ever before this week? When I was 20 I had a week where i got fired from The Olive Garden, found out my girlfriend cheated on me, Lost a packed 200-CD case off the roof of my car, and literally had to change a tire in the rain (that last one is just poetic). It wasn't great then, but a lot of weeks like that one has finally led to success as a comedian.

What is your fantasy for a best week ever, either for yourself personally or for a week of events to talk about on the TV? My fantasy week would be for every single person in the whole world to suffer spontaneous nip slips for 7 days straight. Constant, unending, successive nip slips. By EVERYONE.

What was your Best Week Ever before this week? My week in Rome and Athens, among the ruins of long-forgotten ages I awakened the sexual mystery inside myself.

What is your fantasy for a best week ever, either for yourself personally or for a week of events to talk about on the TV? The contestants of The Biggest Loser stage a revolution, easily overpowering their host, crew and trainers and take over the entire Biggest Loser compound. They make an example of Jillian Michaels by putting her head on a shish-ka-bob. Then they have cake and declare themselves a sovereign nation. Millions of obese americans make pilgrimage to the compound and join them. In the distopic future the new American Civil War is Fats vs Slims.

Or if Taylor Swift like got a big zit. That would be hilarious.

"My Best Week Ever?  Sean McCarthy, a hot tub filled with champagne, and no secrets. Wait, that's my best night ever."

Editor's Note: I'm not sure if Dan is talking about his best week so far, or his best fantasy week. My past includes champagne, hot tubs and secrets. Oh, wait. He said no secrets! Gah.

Editor and publisher since 2007, when he was named New York's Funniest Reporter. Former newspaper reporter at the New York Daily News, Boston Herald and smaller dailies and community papers across America. Loves comedy so much he founded this site.
