Lews Black Says 'F**k You' To Those Blocking Voter Rights In New
Comedian Lewis Black was recently named a celebrity ambassador on voting rights for the ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union).

For a comic who has made his living as being "outraged," a recently released video supporting voting rights where Black states, "f**k voter suppression" is getting a lot of attention.

In this video by the ACLU, it appears Black is learning for the first time about efforts to suppress voters through several techniques such as ID laws and restrictions on early voting.

Black can be seen in the video stating, "What the hell is the matter with you people?! You need to...

8 Remarkable Comedians In Honor Of National Humor Month

4/7/2012 11:00am EDT
Adam Ferrara
April is National Humor Month, so I've pulled together a list of my favorite comedians. Here are eight people who make me laugh...who would be on your list?

1. Adam Ferrara

I genuinely consider Adam Ferrara to be the funniest human being on the planet Earth, and that's because he has performed a miracle: my mother thinks he's funny. My mother doesn't think anything is funny, but she likes him. My father believes we should fly Air Jamaica on the next family vacation. I, meanwhile, laughed so hard during his February set at the Hollywood Improv that my stomach hurt.

It doesn't get better...

'Top Gear' (US) Recap: 'Dangerous Cars' (3.03)

2/28/2012 10:05pm EST
Top Gear
In this week's Top Gear, Adam, Tanner and Rutledge take their lives in their own hands again, driving three allegedly dangerous cars: the Ford Pinto, Suzuki Samurai, and Chevy Corvair.

Rutledge gets the potentially flaming Corvair, while Adam gets a chance to blow himself up in the Pinto, and Tanner has to drive the unturnable Samurai, all of them en route to (what else?) a demolition derby. "I don't feel like there's a huge amount of inherent danger in the car," Rutledge says, while Adam agrees "There's good and bad in everything in life." At least our guys are optimistic in the ...

Spotlight On Jon Stewart

12/8/2008 10:43am EST
Jon Stewart
If someone said years ago that Jon Stuart Leibowitz would become one of the respected and beloved comedians in the world, he would have been the first person to start laughing. After all, he was "that dude" from movies like "Half Baked," "The Faculty," and "Playing by Heart." He changed his name in Hollywood to Jon Stewart, and "The Jon Stewart Show" was canceled after a very short life span. He was a somewhat successful stand up comedian, and hosted "Short Attention Span Theater" on Comedy Central and an MTV show called "You Wrote It, You Watch It." Neither of which did particularly well. ...
