Did you know that before Michelle Buteau got married, she went Dutch? And then she married Dutch, so to speak. Her husband is from Holland is what I’m trying to say. Alrighty. Having gotten that fact established, Buteau, as seen on VH1’s Best Week Ever and the upcoming FOX sitcom Enlisted, jokes about her interracial marriage and the interesting dilemmas posed by her in-laws from Holland. Such as the disturbing things they call their Dutch treats and one particular Christmas tradition that doesn’t play quite so well on this side of the pond. Here she was last night, performing...

Mets fan Jerry Seinfeld in the SNY booth at Citi Field, on “Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee,” Keith Hernandez’s “Seinfeld” episode and more

Louis C.K. will be on Jerry Seinfeld’s third season of “Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee,” even though they spent the day Tuesday on C.K.’s boat, and Seinfeld doesn’t think there’s anything wrong with that — or with the fact that he’s devoting time to yet another white male comedian.
