  • Ricky Gervais releases David Brent demo song ‘Slough’ and it’s excellent (Audio)

    It's been more than 10 years since BBC2 aired the last original episode of The Office. But Ricky Gervais' character of David Brent, the bumbling manager of the Wernham Hogg paper company has lived on. Fans of the original Gervais series know that Brent was also a wannabe musician. And we've been reminded of that somewhat recently by a series of online guitar lessons given by Brent, himself-- not to mention a string of live tour dates with Brent and his band Foregone Conclusion. Simply titled Learn Guitar with David Brent, each lesson video features Gervais embodying the character and playing some true-to-life damn good music. Brent/Gervais has blessed us with ditties like "Life On The Road," "Spaceman Came Down" and "Slough." That last one holds a special place in Brent's heart.

  • Saturday Night Live season 40 premiere live blog: Chris Pratt hosts, Ariana Grande sings

    After weeks of announced personnel changes, anticipation and predictions, the historic 40th season of Saturday Night Live is finally upon us. And comedy fans, myself included, is expecting a lot from SNL this year. I can't remember a time in my entire life when so many horribly tragic and disturbing things are happening all over the world all at the same time. This country is in desperate need of comic relief and perhaps more importantly, this country is in need of sharp satire. Ushering us in to season 40 is Parks and Recreation star Chris Pratt, who has become known as the buff, tough Peter Quill of the summer blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy more than the flabby, and hilariously dopey Andy Dwyer of Pawnee. While Pratt hosts tonight he'll be joined by Nickelodeon star-turned-pop-star Ariana Grande, who is basically everywhere.

  • Kate Mara, Ellen Page spoof True Detective in hilarious Funny Or Die trailer (Video)

    Like Orange is the New Black, Scandal, Game of Thrones and a few others, True Detective is show that people lose their minds over. To be fair, the HBO drama is stellar and we get why people loved first season performances from Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson. So it makes sense that for weeks the Internet was abuzz about who would be cast in the upcoming 8-episode run of True Detective. And then finally the news came: Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn were cast as True Detective’s leads. But before casting was confirmed, some folks online claimed the show severely lacks female characters with any sort of depth, that perhaps women are mostly eye candy on True Detective. Well, writer Jake Fogelnest basically fixed everything by casting Kate Mara and Ellen Page in Tiny Detectives for Funny Or Die.
