Last week, Andy Samberg was in the closet with host Mike O’Brien, and with the exception of the dangling dildo and a simulated blowjob, I have to say it was a little underwhelming. Samberg’s low energy made for more of a “7 Minutes in Purgatory” instead of 7 Minutes In Heaven.
I’m happy to report that this week, British comedian and actor John Oliver is much more entertaining in the closet with Mike O’Brien. You know him best from The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, as well as a regular on the series Community. He also was the voice of Vanity Smurf in the 3D movie. After he answers some of O’Brien’s oddball questions, the two engage in closet theatre where Oliver plays the British man that appears to make O’Brien sign paperwork prior to cross-dressing for the first time. LOL. Lastly, as always, there is the kiss – in this cases, it’s kisses. Enjoy!
Move over Glee, there’s a new Best in Show. Take your Diablo Cody-esque writers and shuffle on down the road. NBC’s Community is the best new comedy I’ve seen since 30 Rock premiered 4 years ago.
I just spent the last 20 or so minutes watching the pilot for the series about a pathological lying sweet talker’s journey into community college. Well, probably more than 20 minutes, because I kept having to rewind to rewatch some of the more brilliant lines.
There’s so much to this show that I love after seeing only one episode. They hit all my buttons; Multi-camera set up , unique ensemble cast of supporting characters (including Chevy Chase, and The Daily Show’s John Oliver), a healthy dose of relevant pop-culture references, and what’s that? A Matt & Kim song in the background? I think I’m in heaven. I’ll admit, I don’t always understand the shows and movies that I watch. I enjoy Mad Men, but hell if I know what’s going on half the time. The point of No Country For Old Men? Point me toward the the nearest Film Studies class please. I like this show because I get this show. It’s a show for people who love quirky, flawed characters, and the inane stupidity that gets them into situation-comedy trouble, mixed in with smart writing that isn’t afraid to through in a quick one-liner that maybe only 10% of the audience will catch.
