funny or die

A new super hilarious Funny Or Die show called ‘Billy On The Street‘ is debuting in a couple days on Fuse TV, and we have a little sneak peak for you. The music and pop culture trivia game show is hosted by Billy Eichner. The comedian ambushes people on the streets to ask them to answer ridiculous questions with the hopes they will win a dollar. This isn’t something new to him, as he’s been doing it himself on YouTube for years. He’s a pro.

In the preview below, he asks questions like, “Miss, for a dollar, name two Anne Hathaway movies,” “Sir, little gay, little gay, which makes more sense, Tori Spelling or a crop circle?” and ”True or false, Celine Dion is 65 percent bird?” LOL. He even asks an old woman if she’d be into having a threeway with Michael Buble and Josh Groban.

In upcoming episodes, we can expect hilarious situations like Billy arguing with a toothless homeless man about whether it’s finally Glenn Close’s year to win the Oscar and in the third episode he almost gets into a fist fight with an old lesbian who doesn’t care about Moneyball. LOL.

Enjoy the preview below. I sure did. The show premieres on Fuse Thursday, December 22 at 11e/10c.

Sabrina & Salem: Together Again

In: Random Reads, TV Shows, Tyrell, Videos

Ah, I miss episodes of Sabrina, The Teenage Witch. I used to live for new episodes of the series on Friday nights. Plus, I am a sucker for anything Melissa Joan Hart really. But come on, this show was awesome. Talking cats, magic and a closet that took you places. The best. Unfortunately, the show ended in 2003 but in a new video from Funny or Die, Sabrina and her cat Salem are reunited for a little Mexican dinner date. The result is absolutely hilarious.

Salem and Sabrina are sitting at a table and catching up as Salem is explaining his new career ventures when the restaurants waiter comes up to the table expressing how much he loved the show and how pretty he thinks Melissa Joan Hart is. Then switching gears, Salem brings up the idea that the two of them just practice some magic together. Reluctantly, Melissa agrees and the result is crazy… literally. Watch the video below.

I don’t realize just how much I miss Megan Mullally as Karen Walker, until I see her pop up on some show or online video. When Mullally guest starred on an episode of “Happy Endings” this season as Penny Hearts’ mom, memories of her comic genius on “Will & Grace” came flooding back. While not the greatest daytime talk show host, there is no denying that Megan is one fine comedic actress. Some network needs to snatch her up and give Megan her own sitcom to star in immediately. Perhaps, the following video can provide inspiration for a new show.

For Funny or Die’s newest video, they’ve enlisted Megan to play the eccentric Peggy Dvorak. This acting coach teaches aspiring starlets the fine art of being cool. She takes these girls in and instructs them to throw conventional wisdom out the window and to become cool renegades. Toss out that boxed set of “Sex and the City” (guilty as charged) and trade them in for NPR (National Public Radio). Also an offense in Dvorkak’s teachings is listening or singing to Ke dollar sign ha aka Ke$ha. Again, I’m guilty as charged. What’s their punishment for committing such a heinous crime? Watch the video and you’ll find out.

Katherine Heigl has launched her campaign to help save the world… by eliminating testicles. That’s right, in this new Funny or Die video, she explains why she hates them and wants to get rid of them one by one (or two by two). The actress goes as far as to make a list of pros and cons to testicles. Here are a few of the ones she lists: Jiggly, look awful shaved, look awful not shaved, size fluctuates unpredictably, seems like an anatomical mistake, Muppet-like, and so on.

Fortunately for men and unfortunately for Heigl, she isn’t able to neuter men… yet, so instead she has focussed her efforts on ensure that pets get neutered. Sidenote, the hottie in the underwear who’s penis Heigl talks to in the video is actor Derek Theler, whom you may recognize from 90210 and Conan, among other projects.

Kristen Wiig, part of the Clinton Foundation’s Celebrity Division, has a bunch of ideas that may solve our global warming issues. In this new Funny or Die video, she explains a very simple and overlooked solution to global warming: breathing.

If the issue is carbon dioxide, well, we know every time we exhale we release the said gas with our breath. What if everyone held their breath for one minute every day? Wiig goes on to explain the different campaigns that could go along with the concept as well.

Earlier this year, Kristin Wiig was named one of the two sexiest vegetarians for 2001 by PETA. She’s all about a good cause and a good laugh. Take a deep breath (and hold it) and enjoy the video below!

I think this is the first acting gig I’ve seen Mel Gibson in in years! In a new Funny or Die video, Gibson joins Jamie Foxx and Garry Shandling as the three of them brainstorm for how they can best honor Robert Downey Jr. for the The American Cinematheque Tribute.

It soon becomes apparent that Foxx is a little bitter that Robert Downey Jr. is being honored for his acting, having played a black man in Tropic Thunder. “Listen, he does this now, if we don’t nip it in the butt, next thing you’ll now he’ll be playing Martin Luther King… ‘I have a dream…,'” says Foxx. He then goes on to explain how they should avoid using the words “black” and “white”. He holds his phone and asks Gibson what it is. “It’s a Blackberry,” sas Gibson. “No, it’s an African American Berry,” responds Foxx. After some trial and error, Foxx asks Gibson again, “What group does Will.I.Am sing for?” Gibson confidently responds, “The African American Eyed Peas“. LOL.

I love how these guys were also able to make fun of themselves. Gibson wasn’t afraid to bring up his trouble with the law, Shandling his face, etc. You have to watch this. Great to see Gibson back in the spotlight for something that doesn’t involve a mugshot.

Ryan Gosling Is “Quiet Ryan”

In: Random Reads, Tyrell, Videos

It’s rare but special when an actor can appear on our film or TV screens and say so many things without even opening their mouths. Sometimes, a look or elapsed silence is more powerful than dialogue. Don’t you agree? Take the film Wall-E for example. The robots don’t have any dialogue but the storyline and their emotions are so clear. An actor who is famous for saying everything with his eyes and face is the beautiful and talented, Ryan Gosling.

Last night, Patrick and myself along with former Homorazzi writer Jamie checked out the film Crazy, Stupid, Love. Ryan Gosling plays the womanizing playboy who ends up falling in love with his protege’s daughter. Although Ryan does a lot of his flirting and courting with vocalization, it’s Ryan’s looks and smirks that has us all weak in the knees. So, it’s only fitting that Funny or Die would create a spoof video featuring him in faux-film titled, Quiet Ryan.

In a world of constant communication it can be hard to find your voice. This year’s break out movie star doesn’t say a lot but speaks volumes.

If any of you have seen Gosling’s latest film, Drive, you know that Ryan’s dialogue is very limited. However, the power he posses through the scenes is enough to remind you that he is one of the greatest actors around right now. Check out the Quiet Ryan trailer below. Funny or dumb… you tell us.

Over the weekend, Will Ferrell was awarded the prestigious Mark Twain Award at a star-studded ceremony in Washington, D.C. In winning this award, he follows in the footsteps of Richard Pryor, Steve Martin, and Bill Cosby. When accepting the award, Ferrell said to the audience, “It’s about time” as he dropped it, shattering it into pieces (it was a fake one).“If my children try to touch this, I will beat them,” he joked while trying to put it back together.

Now, a new Funny or Die video has just been released where several stars read a personal letter they received from Will Ferrell. In fact…they all received the same letter, but only the name was changed. The only person to figure this out is Larry David, and he is not a happy camper. The other stars to receive the letter include: Amy Poehler, Christina Applegate, Maya Rudolph, Zach Galifianakis, Sarah Silverman, Eva Mendes, and Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite). Watch the hilarious video below.
