CollegeHumor’s Streeter and Amir take their Prank War to new heights on Jimmy Kimmel Live?

Streeter Seidell and Amir Blumenfeld have been pranking each other for years now, only their pranks are big-budget and seen by millions on the Internets, because Streeter and Amir work for CollegeHumor.com.

Streeter and Amir explained it all to Kimmel. Doing shots of limoncello with Danny DeVito is merely a bonus, right? But is their best effort yet? Well, there is the element of death involved.

Katie Rich, whom SNL had suspended from the writing staff last season over a...

Steve O’Donnell accepts the Herb Sargent Award at the 2017 Writers Guild Awards, and other winners

Steve O’Donnell remained humble as he accepted the Herb Sargent Award at the 2017 Writers Guild Awards, wondering if perhaps the WGA had confused him for another former head writer of Late Night with David Letterman, or perhaps Saturday Night Live, or even his identical twin, Mark, who co-wrote the Broadway musical Hairspray. Steve O’Donnell’s credits have included The Simpsons, Seinfeld, The Chris Rock Show, The Dana Carvey Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live and Letterman, where he served as head writer when they launched the Top Ten lists. Here is his acceptance speech, delivered after opening remarks by Letterman himself and writer...
