On first comedy tour, Ron Artest does Q&A with Improv’s Budd Friedman, hugs fans at Carolines

What was the fuss all about, again? NBA player Ron Artest, who wants to change his name to Metta World Peace, says silly things when he’s not shooting hoops or starting fights on the basketball court. This summer, show business people convinced Artest to launch his own comedy tour. Artest hosted a comedy show two weekends ago at the Hollywood Improv, where, as we see in this footage from the Los Angeles Times, let him off the hook as a stand-up by putting the Improv’s legendary chief Budd Friedman center stage with a mic to pepper Artest with questions (presumably from audience members).

Martin: “Glitter doesn’t go away. Glitter is the herpes of crafts supplies.”┬áLevi: “Glitter is the herpes of the arts and crafts world. I’m convinced. It does not go away.” OK. So. Now what? Internet want a...

When is a photobomb not a photobomb? Ken Jeong upstages Kate Upton in GQ

What a relief that GQ’s 2011 Comedy Issue also managed to put a male comedian in a bathing suit! Well, it is Ken Jeong. And the magazine wants us to believe that he is photobombing this shoot with model Kate Upton. Except isn’t the whole point of a photobomb that the photographer is unaware that someone else has snuck into the picture? Click for additional GQ photos with Ken Jeong, Kate Upton and some dude model....
