Comedy Central to reair South Park ep featuring helicopter assault, shot Osama bin Laden in the head

SPOILER ALERT! Comedy Central's South Park team usually has lightning-fast turnaround to current events, but this week's new episode is lampooning The Comedy Awards (which Matt and Trey won an award from Comedy Central at, btw). It's OK, though, because they already covered the whole let's have Osama bin Laden get shot in the head by U.S. special ops rappelling down to the ground from a helicopter routine. That episode, "It's a Jersey Thing," (season 14, episode 9) will air at 9:30 p.m. EDT/PDT Wednesday, after an encore of "Osama bin Laden has Farty Pants" (season 5, episode 9) at 9. Roll the clip!...

Funny because it’s true: Jimmy Fallon portrays Donald Trump taking credit for killing of Osama bin Laden

File this under Funny Because It's True. Donald Trump hosted a press conference to boast that he had forced President Barack Obama to prove his American citizenship. Then the Golden Combover boasted that most of the White House Correspondents' Dinner jokes were about him, when really, it was just a few minutes out of many. So when Obama broke into primetime TV last night — coincidentally during the final minutes of the Golden Combover's NBC show, Celebrity Apprentice — you'd figure he'd have a response for that. And he does. In the form of Jimmy Fallon, in this scene from tonight's upcoming episode of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Fallon hits all the right notes, even making fun of NBC in the process. Roll the clip! (Note: If you do not see the video below, just click this link to see Jimmy Fallon as Donald Trump.)...

Jeffrey Ross talks about what’s it like to roast Charlie Sheen over and over on tour

When Charlie Sheen's live theater tour turned out to be not quite so well-thought-out, they called in comedian Jeffrey Ross, aka The Roastmaster, to roast Sheen onstage. After the first night, Ross sent me this message about it via Twitter: "Im gonna follow CS around the country & roast him as a public service 4 those who bought tickets to his trainwreck of a tour." Today, Ross told The Hollywood Reporter quite a bit more about the experience. He hadn't met Sheen beforehand. His one rule for Sheen before agreeing to join the tour? ‚ÄúIf Charlie calls me himself and says it's OK to roast him, and if he can go through that gauntlet, then it will be great.‚Äù And when Sheen said OK, and the tour happened to be heading to Atlantic City, it was game on. So, about that first show together: I let him sweat it out for a good 30 minutes, then he started getting a little choppy and someone yelled out, ‚ÄúI want a refund!‚Äù We didn‚Äôt have a cue or anything. I walked out in a hazmat suit, pulled the mask down, and said, ‚ÄúCharlie, these people paid for a show, they deserve a show ‚Ķ it's a comedy intervention.‚Äù Because that‚Äôs what was driving me crazy: He was billing it as a comedy tour without being a comedian. You can see why comedians...
