Kids in the Hall: Unmasked!

Three members of Kids in the Hall sat down for an interview this afternoon for the upcoming season of Unmasked on XM satellite radio. Well, they didn’t stay seated, or in one place, for long. Scott Thompson, Dave Foley and Kevin McDonald made the live audience at Comix forget for a couple of hours that the Pope also was in New York City today, as the trio bounded around the stage, tangling in each other’s microphone cords, throwing water on each other, and generally give XM host Ron Bennington little room to ask a question. Out of control. But in a funny way. "It’s like having the f***ing (Three) Stooges on stage here!" As Thompson and McDonald mock-fought/rolled around on the floor, Foley quipped: "You’re really going to want to check out the video podcast for this." And after Thompson accidentally spilled his water on his pants, he said: "I bet this will sound great on the radio!"

Tim and Eric interviewed, tour hits East Coast

Friend in comedy journalism Nick A. Zaino III got Tim and Eric on the phone to explain themselves. Zaino’s verdict? "The show is a lot more fun if you just immerse yourself in the weirdness, as audiences did with Monty Python and Ernie Kovacs in their respective times." "We know that that’s the kind of show that we’d want to watch if we were 17 years old," says Tim Heidecker of the duo’s approach.

Their sold-out tour hits Cambridge, Mass., on Monday (not coincidentally, Neil Hamburger plays the bar next door the day before them), then NYC on Tuesday, Philadelphia on Wednesday. Tim and Eric’s season one DVD is available now. Click below to buy...

Clinton AND Obama do Colbert Report

Stephen Colbert closed out his weeklong trip to Philadelphia by having both Democratic presidential candidates guest on the same show Thursday night. Sen. Hillary Clinton appeared first, attempting humor on how she can fix anything as well as take phone calls at 3 a.m. This, still? Really? Enough already. Clinton fixed the screen, which ultimately allowed Sen. Barack Obama to appear later in the show by satellite. Proving once again that Clinton is her own worst enemy in this campaign. And that Obama will take the higher road. After the jump, former Sen. John Edwards also delivered the Word. Edwards. Who’s he,...
