The truth about Last Comic Driving

OK. So we’ve had more than a few weeks now of this silly little Last Comic Driving contest, and it’s time to spill some beans. For one thing, anyone else consider it odd that NBC put the first contestant, Andrew Norelli, up on Hulu, but no one else? Conspiracy? Or did they just think, er, maybe no one wants to see this again? So far we’ve seen Andrew Norelli, Whitney Cummings, J. Chris Newberg, Jacob Sirof, Alycia Cooper and Eddie Pence take the not-so-hot seat in the Honda Pilot. In the back seats, it’s often hard to even hear what’s going on in the front. How do they fix this? Well, first off, the pay the passengers. Sure, you guessed that part already, didn’t you? I read online elsewhere that someone thought the other contestants were the passengers. Oh, what misery that would be. No, no. You shall pay me to sit in a car and listen to multiple takes of comedy. Also, you shall put this car on a trailer, because I don’t trust Brit lady to drive and talk and look at the camera at the same time. I like Brit lady. I really do.

Max Silvestri, who takes part in Best Night Ever podcasts for the Best Week Ever site, got his hands on the super duper (as in, not super, so just duper?) list of 20 words that cell phone networks consider "Level 0" and will not be heard in broadcast form over said cell phones. So, piehole is OK, but cornhole (and corn-hole) is not OK? Hmmm. The rest of the list is here. Of course, we can only imagine what the late George Carlin would have done with this...

Car crashes into io West Theater

A car crashed through the front window of the io West Theater in Los Angeles Thursday afternoon (image via Defamer) at about 4 p.m. Pacific time. The theater notes that no one was injured, although the "damage to the exterior and interior of the building is extensive and means that the Mainstage and Bar are CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE." (emphasis theirs) Their phone service also got knocked out, so please check back at their site online for updates. They still will hold improv classes this weekend. The driver allegedly was under the influence. So…is this karmic retribution for allowing MTV’s Real World: Hollywood kids to take the stage drunk in front of paid audiences? For those of you who didn’t watch it…God bless you, but… Here is a recap of the episode in which resident would-be comedian Dave gets drunk before going onstage at the io West. Or you can watch the whole shebang, shebang: MTV Music Videos MTV Shows Entertainment...
