Which obviously meant a question for Black about his feelings on gun control. Black replied that he thought even using the words “gun control” is a tactical error. “That was a big mistake,” Black said. “Because it just feeds into their fucking…that we’re coming to get their guns.” He said that even before massacres in Newtown, Conn., and Aurora, Colo., he had lent...

Adomian wasn’t the only comedian to love pretending to be Howser — Adam Carolla and Dana Gould also riffed in the travel host’s voice — but his was perhaps the best and most sincere effort. In fact, Adomian wrote a tribute to Howser...

Dan Soder’s late-night TV debut on Conan

Dan Soder made his late-night TV debut last night on Conan, and killed it. Soder has a great attitude on and off-stage and great jokes to go with it, too. In this performance, Soder makes fun of himself and his generation of Millennials, illustrating it via tattoos; fills us in on a childhood growing up with a single mom; and teaches us how a fake Russian accent can help you avoid a dangerous situation (whether or not you live in NYC). Roll the clip! Related reading: Dan Soder profiled here in “Meet Me In New York” back in November...
