Louis C.K. Goes Off On Trump

3/5/2016 6:23pm EST
Louis C.K. Compares Donald Trump To Hitler: 'He's An Insane Bigo
Add comedian Louis C.K. to the growing list of celebrities and politicians getting aboard the Stop Donald Trump bandwagon. The stand-up star compared the current frontrunner for the GOP presidential nomination to Adolf Hitler in an email he sent to fans to promote his web series 'Horace and Pete'.

“Please stop it with voting for [Donald] Trump. It was funny for a little while. But the guy is Hitler,” he wrote on Saturday. “And by that I mean that we are being Germany in the ’30s. Do you think they saw the s–t coming? Hitler was just some hilarious and refreshing dude with a weird combover...

Did Louis C.K. Go Too Far With Jokes On 'SNL'?

Louis C.K. Attacked By Twitter After Child Molester Jokes On 'SN
Oh. My. God.

Can you believe Louis CK made a bunch of jokes about child molestation on "Saturday Night Live's" recent 40th season finale?

Well, speaking as someone who's seen Louis CK's stand-up before... yes. Totally. But plenty of people who haven't are now up in arms over the comedian's opening monologue, which tackled the extremely risque subject of child molesters.

"Child molesters are very tenacious people," Louis quipped. "They love molesting childs. It's crazy. It's like their favorite thing. When you consider the risk of being a child molester — there is no worse life available...

Comedian Louis C.K., Others Call For TMZ To Remove Tracy Morgan Crash Video

6/12/2014 2:25pm EDT
Comedian Louis C.K. has called on website to remove its video footage from the New Jersey car accident that killed one man and put three more in the hospital in critical condition, including comedians Tracy Morgan and Ardie Fuqua.

A man believed to be Fuqua, who worked with C.K. on his hit FX show "Louie," is seen being pulled from the wreckage in the video, and the star, real name Louis Szekely, is now asking, along with Fuqua's daughter, that the footage be taken down.

"Take it down TMZ. Now. Please," the comedian tweeted. "Tmz has a video of footage of my friends Tracy and Arte...

'American Hustle' Is The Best Film Of 2013

12/19/2013 8:27am EST
American Hustle
From the first second of the first scene, this film had me hooked.  I knew I was in for an incredible ride, and that’s exactly what ‘American Hustle’, directed by David O. Russell (‘Silver Linings Playbook’) is… one fantastic cinematic ride.

28 Celebrities Who Use Stage Names

28 Celebrities Who Use Stage Names
Many celebrities have changed their names before they hit it big, and for many reasons. Let's take a look at some of the biggest stars who didn't take their birth name to Hollywood.

Katy Hudson didn't want to be confused with Kate Hudson, so she took her mother's maiden name and became Katy Perry.

Oprah Winfrey's name is iconic, but it's not actually her real name. It's Orpha, after the biblical figure. However, so many people mispronounced her name while she was growing up that the mispronunciation stuck.

Barry Manilow was born Barry Alan Pincus. He took his mother's maiden name...

2013 Emmy Awards Predictions: Who Are The Favorites To Win?

9/20/2013 8:48pm EDT
2013 Emmy Awards Predictions

It’s been a while since we’ve had such a wild card Emmy season. Last year, Homeland was all but a lock in each of its major categories, but after a shaky second season, some strong competition from other long-running shows, and a buzzworthy new Netflix series, things are really up in the air pretty much all over the place. Still, I’ll do my best to make some predictions in the big categories. Just remember: This year, pretty much anything goes.

Breaking Bad
Downton Abbey
Game of Thrones
House of Cards
Mad Men

While I’d love to see Game of Thrones’ confident t...

Emmy Nominations: 'American Horror Story' Gets 17 Noms, Netflix's 'House Of Cards' Also Dominates

7/18/2013 10:01am EDT
House of Cards
After picking up nine nominations, Kevin Spacey's Netflix series "House Of Cards" will be a big contender at the 2013 Primetime Emmy Awards. The political thriller was recognized in the Outstanding Drama Series category and picked up dramatic acting nominations for its leads, Spacey and Robin Wright. It received a total of nine nominations.

The Netflix series will be facing stiff competition from last year's big winners "Homeland" and "Breaking Bad" as well as "Mad Men", "Game of Thrones" and "Downton Abbey."

In the lead actor category, Spacey will face off against "Homeland's" Damian Lew...

Louis C.K. Delays Next Season Of 'Louie'

10/10/2012 9:04am EDT
Louis C.K.
Louis C.K. is taking an extended break to recharge his batteries before returning to his hit show Louie.

The comedian, who won two Emmy Awards for the sitcom last month, was due to have season four of his comedy air next summer, but the premiere will now come in spring 2014.

Louis C.K. requested the hiatus to allow him to continue his stand-up tour for the remainder of 2012 before writing new scripts in early 2013.

He says, "It's a luxury I asked for. The last three seasons have been this surge of fun and work and stories and it's been great, but I want the show to keep getting better...

Louis C.K. Forgoes Ticket Service, Sells $4.5 Million In Two Days

6/28/2012 3:11pm EDT
Louis C.K.
Louis C.K. has proven you don't need Ticketmaster to make money. Following his decision to sell directly through his website rather than a third party ticketing service, the comedian has sold over 100,000 tickets and made around $4.5 million in sales according to the Associated Press.

Louis C.K. and Aziz Ansari are on the forefront of a new wave for comedians. Last year, the two sold comedy specials online for $5, rather than go through the process of selling DVDs or premiering the shows on premium channels like HBO. Louis' special made over $1 million in 12 days.

'Louie' Scores With Season 3 Premiere, Season 2 DVD Release

6/28/2012 1:10pm EDT
It's another bad day for Louis C.K. and we're better off for it, as Louie returns for its third season tonight at 10:30 PM ET/PT on FX.

While his stand-up material is still too vulgar for this reviewer's taste (the opening bit of the premiere so much so that I fast-forwarded through half of it), within the show itself, Louie is still getting plenty of mileage out of being the most downtrodden person alive, and still has plenty of dead-on observations about life.

In tonight's "Everything Is Wrong," for example, he and another motorist park in front of not one, not two, but four street si...

Louis C.K. Declares War On Ticket Scalpers

6/27/2012 2:23pm EDT
Louis C.K.
Comedian Louis C.K. is waging war on ticket scalpers by selling access to his shows online and vowing to cancel any seats that are passed on.

The funnyman has become increasingly frustrated seeing scalpers charging his fans extortionate rates for tickets to his sold-out concerts. So he's devised his own way of tackling them by selling passes to his gigs directly to fans through his website and banning anyone who sells their ticket on to a third party.

In a post on his website, C.K. writes, "Making my shows affordable has always been my goal but two things have always worked against that...

Adele, Kate Middleton & Rihanna Among Those On Time's '100 Most Influential People In The World' List

2012 Time 100
Time magazine just released its annual list of the 100 Most Influential People who "inspire us, entertain us, challenge us and change our world."

British soul singer Adele made it onto the prestigious Time 100 list. U.K. royal Kate Middleton, a.k.a. Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, is also a new name in the lineup following her wedding to Prince William last year. Her sister Pippa Middleton, who was recently embroiled in a gun/paparazzi controversy, surprisingly made the cut.

Bajan popstar Rihanna, movie executive Harvey Weinstein and President Barack Obama are also included on the 2012 l...

Kurt Metzger Talks Season 3 Of 'Ugly Americans'

Kurt Metzger
On Comedy Central's Ugly Americans, Kurt Metzger plays an unemployed zombie who once had relations with a toaster. That should clue you in to his sense of humor.

The Last Comic Standing alum provides the voice for Randall Skeffington, who became a member of the undead to (no surprise) attract a girl, only to find out she'd moved on to warlocks.

He's unemployed, has too much time on his hands, and still has issues with his parents. He's one of the many quirky residents of an alternate-reality New York City that's the backdrop for Ugly Americans, which begins its new season tonight at 10:30...

'Louie' Blu-Ray Delivers And Then Some

7/7/2011 4:18pm EDT
To coincide with the second season of the eclectic FX comedy starring Louis C.K., 20th Century FOX recently released Louie: The Complete First Season in a two-disc, thirteen-episode collection. Here's my review of the Blu-Ray/DVD combo set.

The Show

Louie is most definitely an acquired taste. (I'm not complaining; so was Archer and now I can't get enough of that show.) One-part stand-up, one-part awkward comedy, it's basically Louis C.K. playing himself - without the laugh track or sitcom feel that accompanies most shows where comedians try to play versions of themselves. It reminds ...

Louis C.K. Talks About Joys, Challenges Filming Season Two of ‘Louie’

7/7/2011 1:00pm EDT
Louis C.K.
If you’ve seen actor/comedian Louis C.K.’s absurdist comedy “Louie” on FX, chances are you either love it or don’t get it at all. The show is unique for a variety of reasons, most notably the fact that C.K. not only stars in the show, but also writes, directs and edits every episode himself. He is also one of the producers and has a contract with FX Networks that gives him complete freedom in terms of story and production, something that is unheard of in the television industry. There is no question that “Louie” really is his show.

“The writing is the most difficult because that’s where it...

Olivia Munn looked stunning in a strapless blue dress at Comedy Central's first ever Comedy Awards, which were a big hit on Saturday night. But the event wasn't live - it was only a taping. The show doesn't air until Sunday, April 10, but you can check out pics of some of the stars who were there and see the full list of winners right here.

Tina Fey, Alec Baldwin and David Letterman were among those laughing as they were honored for their achievements during the night's ceremony.

Brittany's TCA 2011 Blog: FX - 'Louie,' 'Wilfred' & 'Justified'

1/19/2011 11:15am EST
The last day of the TCA (Television Critics Association) Winter/Spring 2011 press tour was the one I'd had circled on my calendar, because it was all about FX. I have really fallen in love with this network and the people behind it over the past year. They gave me the highlight of my trip: a panel devoted to one of my all-time favorite series (Justified), putting me in the same room with one of my all-time favorite actors (Timothy Olyphant). I'll geek out about that later, though. First, let's talk about what else the cable net has up its sleeve...

Trailer Talk - This Week In Movies: 'Zombieland,' 'Whip It' & More

9/28/2009 8:57am EDT
I've been going over my zombie survival plan and acquiring a variety of weapons in preparation for the arrival of "Zombieland" in theaters this week. Actually, I haven't been acquiring weapons since purchasing a gun is a lengthy process in Massachusetts, but I have been foaming at the mouth to see this zombie comedy since I watched the initial trailer several months ago.

Jesse Eisenberg and Woody Harrelson look like the perfect odd couple paired together in the hopes of survival. Eisenberg oozes the fraidy cat vibe in every clip I've seen of the movie, while Harrelson does his best mac...

'I Think I Love My Wife:' A French Classic Re-envisioned By Chris Rock

Chris Rock
From writer/director Chris Rock (The Longest Yard, Madagascar, Head Of State) comes a comedy about a man with the perfect marriage – his wife is beautiful, intelligent and a fantastic mother to his children – but there's just one little problem: he's bored out of his suburban businessman's mind. Despite having it all, Richard Cooper can't help but fantasize about having nearly ever woman he sees. Still, it's only fantasy. Then, one fateful day, an alluring, free-spirited, not to mention stunning, old friend suddenly appears at his office door, putting him to the ultimate test. Just how muc...
