  • Paul Rudd answers age old ‘man questions’

    In a recent video segment called Ask a Grown Man on Rookiemag, Paul Rudd answered some questions posed by young ladies. He looks tired, and cute, and I am sort of in love with this video. Some examples of reader queries: “Why, WHY do boys like boobs so much?” (Rudd’s answer: Because they are awesome.)…

  • Ali Fedotowsky has some Jewish jungle fever

    Former star of “The Bachelorette” Ali Fedotowsky is all about the yiddishe men. Although she recently called off her wedding to Roberto Martinez, who she met on the show, Ali says that she tends “to like nice, funny Jewish boys.” She even told “Life and Style” that Andy Samberg is her celebrity dream date! Although…

  • Maurice Sendak gives an amazingly grumpy interview to Stephen Colbert

    I imagine children’s book authors to conform to particular stereotypes. Dr. Seuss is an old crotchety man, reading to children gathered around him in a warmly lit library. Inexplicably, he is wearing a Santa costume. Mother Goose has her silly hat. In addition to the circle of children around her in the library, there are…

  • Grandma Joan is maaaaaaad at Chelsea Handler

    In one of the stranger turf wars in Hollywood history, Chelsea Handler, the blonde young’n (who I personally have always felt was “meh” on the comedy spectrum) began a feud with Joan Rivers. In an interview with Howard Stern, Handler rolled her eyes, imitated the old lady’s squeaky voice, and asked honestly, “What the f**k…

  • Sandra Bernhard was almost Miranda Hobbs!

    Sandra Bernhard, best known for playing one of the first lesbian characters on cable television with her role on “Roseanne,” could have taken her acting chops to a very different sort of show. In a recent interview with Howard Stern, the queen of comedy told the radio host that she was thiiiiiiiiis close to playing…

  • My boyfriend JoGo songifies the news!

    Joseph Gordon Levitt, the key holder to my locked heart, poster boy of my adolescent bedroom, and father of my digitally altered “what would YOUR children look like?” pictures, is a funny man. So funny, in fact, that the Gregory Brothers (of Songify the News fame) gave him a guest appearance in one of their…

  • Jerry Seinfeld is bashful about his fame

    Contrary to popular belief, Seinfeld did not crawl under a rock after his show ended and forgot he was famous. It was, in fact, on purpose. In a recent video posted on The Huffington Post, Seinfeld admits he just didn’t like “being a thing:” I left LA and I tried to break back into the…

  • Jason Segel is Harvard’s Man of the Year

    In what might be the most pretentious comedy honor ever, Harvard’s Hasty Pudding Theatricals named Jason Segel their Man of the Year. Claire Danes was named Woman of the Year. While both actors will be bestowed with an official Pudding Pot, Segel will get the extra special honor of being roasted. Not Danes though, maybe…

  • Ben Stiller to direct, produce, and star in a very yiddishe HBO show

    HBO has always tailored their original series to niche markets. They got the single female urbanites with “Sex and the City,” the Creoles with “Treme,” the Aussies with “Flight of the Conchords,” and the perverts with “Taxicab Confessions.” Now they are roping the most coveted T.V. watchers of all: the Jews! Ben Stiller has reportedly…

  • Rosanne Barr is getting nutty

    I know, I know. Most people assumed medical insanity already happened in the nineties, when she did things like star in weirdo crappy movies (“She Devil”, anyone?) and marry Tom Arnold. However, this fine wine has only gotten more robust with age. In the last two days, Roseanne has really shown what a classy broad…
