  • Tina Fey, Ellie Kemper’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt goes to Netflix, despite original plans for NBC

    In a very surprising turn of events, Netflix has snagged Tina Fey and Robet Carlock's cult comedy Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.

Now Netflix has announced it bought exclusive rights to the show where it will premiere in March 2015. What's more, Netflix has already ordered a second season of the comedy series, which is produced by NBC's production company Universal Television.

  • Lucy Ricardo hologram to be unveiled at Lucille Ball Comedy Festival, Jerry Seinfeld headlines

    Jerry Seinfeld will headline the 2015 Lucille Ball Comedy Festival on Saturday, Aug. 1 at the Jamestown Savings Bank Arena. The long-running comedy festival in the I Love Lucy star's hometown takes place each summer to celebrate Lucille Ball's spirit of laughter. The comedian helped organize its first incarnation but passed away in April 1989 just before thousands of fans travelled to Jamestown. The festival brings the country's top headliners to western New York and supports rising comedians from the area. Jay Leno and America's Got Talent runner-up Tom Cotter headlined last year's festival. "Jamestown celebrates the best in comedy, and Jerry Seinfeld is exactly that," said Journey Gunderson, the festival's producer and executive director of the Lucy Desi Center for Comedy and National Comedy Center.

  • Patrice O’Neal benefit will feature Bill Burr, Hannibal Buress, Michael Che, Jim Norton and many more

    Just a week and a half before the anniversary of his passing, the 3rd annual Patrice O’Neal Comedy Benefit was announced, taking place at the New York City Center. In its third year, the benefit began as the brainchild of close friend and fellow comedian Bill Burr as a way to raise money for Patrice O’Neal’s family, in the wake of the veteran comedian's untimely death on Nov. 29, 2011 due to complications from a stroke he suffered in late October of that same year. Scheduled performers include Ben Bailey, Burr, Colin Quinn, Dave Attell, Hannibal Buress, Jim Florentine, Jim Norton, Michael Che and Rich Vos.

  • Bill Cosby fake cries, says, ‘Parents are taking their children home saying ‘Bill Cosby is an evil man’

    Bill Cosby, who is now facing a total of 21 sexual abuse allegations (by our count), opened a show in the Bahamas last night – a fundraiser for a women’s organization – by fake crying into his hands and exclaiming, “Parents are coming and taking their children home, saying to me '’Bill Cosby you are an evil man.’” The performance, which reportedly continued for 90 minutes without further reference to the allegations, occurred as two more women – Louisa Moritz and Angela Leslie – came forward alleging Cosby had sexually assaulted them. Moritz claims Cosby forced her to give him a blowjob backstage at The Tonight Show in 1971. 'He took his hands and put them on the back of my head and forced his penis in my mouth, saying, "have a taste of this. It will do you good in so many ways,"' Moritz told TMZ, adding that she plans to file a civil suit.
