Hal Sparks
Who wouldn't want Hal Sparks to help them ring in Halloween? The multi-talented actor, comedian and musician is one of the judges for The Hub's Halloween Bash costume contest, and he recently told BFTV what he enjoyed about the experience, as well as his own personal Halloween favorites.

Billy Unger wants you to know that the Lab Rats season finale is "the biggest mission yet. The Lab Rats go on a mission in space. That's something they've never experienced before."

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.

Reviewing celebrity fashion is like being in a candy store. You have your good candy and your bad candy. Good candy like Jolly Ranchers, Starburst and M&M's (with peanuts, of course) makes your mouth water and leaves you wanting more.
