Starpulse Q&A: Neil Hamburger Discusses Survival And Wonders How The Likes of Dane Cook And Carrot Top Have Succeeded

October 24th, 2007 3:34pm EDT
Neil Hamburger
Neil Hamburger, America's beloved funny man, is pulling the curtain on what may be one of the greatest injustices in entertainment today: the enslavement of comedians by an evil conglomerate made up of bookers, agents, lawyers, PR reps, and club owners. Forced to perform hundreds of shows a year for little if any pay, Neil Hamburger has managed to miraculously not only survive the industry, but also grace its biggest stage: Madison Square Garden.

And while Neil has enjoyed successes other than opening for Tenacious D on their arena tour, such as appearing several times on Jimmy Kimmel...

Starpulse Q&A: Comedian Nick Swardson Talks About New Album, Life & Movie Projects In The Works

October 23rd, 2007 2:38pm EDT
Nick Swardson - Party
On his debut comedy album, Party, Nick Swardson claims that it's ironic that he's a comedian because off stage he's not a good story teller, but in this Starpulse Q and A he proves otherwise.

Swardson's career itself is an interesting tale. Performing improv at sixteen and then delving into standup several years later, Nick achieved the distinction of being the youngest comedian to have his own Comedy Central Presents.

One night, Adam Sandler saw the special and was so impressed by the performance that he phoned him the next day, leading to a partnership that allowed Nick to act...

LOS ANGELES (AP) - In her latest movie, Jessica Alba falls into a penguin pond, stabs Dane Cook with a dental tool and accidentally tears off her skirt by closing it in a car door.

Good Luck Chuck
It all started when Charlie Kagan was ten years old. Breaking the cardinal rules of spin-the-bottle, Charlie refused to lip-lock with a demented Goth girl – and she put a hex on him.

Now, twenty-five years later, Charlie (Dane Cook) is a successful dentist…and still cursed. While his plastic surgeon best friend, Stu (Dan Fogler), pursues as many of his patients as possible, Charlie can't seem to find the right girl. Even worse, he discovers at an ex-girlfriend's wedding that every woman he's ever slept with has found true love – with the next guy after him.
