TruTV has added a new sketch comedy show to its comedy line-up. Friends Of The People will launch this summer with a 10-episode order from the network. The sketch show stars an impressive line-up of comedians, who will also serve as writers and executive producers: Kevin Barnett (pictured, Guy Code), Jennifer Bartels (In Living Color reboot), Jermaine Fowler (Comedy Underground With Dave Attell), Lil Rel Howery (In Living Color reboot), The Lucas Bros. (22 Jump Street), and Josh Rabinowitz (I Just Want My Pants Back). Barnett and Rabinowitz will serve as head writers. Friends Of The People joins the reality channel’s group of comedy shows including Impractical Jokers, Killer Karaoke, and Upload With Shaquille O’Neal.
Versatile comedian Nick Kroll made an exciting announcement on last night’s Late Night with Seth Meyers. Comedy Central has renewed his sketch comedy series Kroll Show for a third season. “Nick has gone so deep into his characters we’re worried about his mental health if we didn’t pick up a third season,” said Comedy Central President of Original Programming Kent Alterman. Kroll will continued to be paid to pop bottles with Bobby Bottleservce for another year. Kroll Show airs on Tuesday nights at 10:30pm EST.
Kroll took to Twitter to confirm the news and in doing do, made a reference to Dave Chappelle’s infamous break with Comedy Central. Without telling anyone, Chappelle retreated to South Africa one day after Comedy Central started promoting the start of Chappelle’s Show’s third season. Eventually the veteran comedian admitted the pressure of a $50 million contract was too much to take and he set out for a “spiritual retreat.” Kroll’s tweet is below.
#Krollshow has been picked up for Season 3. Packin my bags for South Africa!

You might have missed Homer Simpson at the Oscars this past Sunday. That might be because the other celebrities were keeping him out of the limelight! The beloved animated father posted on Twitter what really happened during Ellen DeGeneres’ (well, technically Bradley Cooper took the photo) monster selfie. The enlightening picture has so far received over 22,000 retweets and over 9,000 favorites– far short of the more than 3 million retweets that broke Twitter.
The ugly true story of that Oscar® selfie can finally be told! Let’s break Twitter again. Look for Bart. pic.twitter.com/tdfr3Juhff

Jackie Kashian opens her new hour-long stand-up special, This Will Make an Excellent Horcrux, with the promise to kill. And by now, it’s safe to say that any Harry Potter-heads among our readership have probably perked up instantly at the mention of the H-word. Wands at the ready, friends – this lady means business. Much like the Dark Lord before her, Kashian has encased a bit of her soul into this project, and she, too, is well adept at the art of killing. Only difference is, her brand of murder tends to err more on the side of huge laughs than Unforgivable Curses. (You’ll pardon me the excessively nerderific rhetoric. Kashian, after all, did choose the title.)
But the similarities to He Who Must Not Be Named end there. Kashian has long been one of those well disciplined and impeccably polished comic voices who writes, performs, and tours continuously as a headliner and sometimes as the opener for the venerable Maria Bamford. A native Wisconsinite, she radiates an affable warmth and onstage charm characteristic of her former Midwestern stomping grounds. Now available for exclusive streaming on the All Things Comedy network, Horcrux is itself Midwestern. Filmed at the Acme Comedy Company in Minneapolis, the setting exudes an appropriately intimate, DIY feel, which matches pitch and pace of the performer at center stage. As for her material, Kashian spans the scope of the personal and the topical with practiced ease. She even wades into ever-polarizing rape joke territory early on with a nod to her one of her home state’s most notorious residents: “Paul Ryan is from Wisconsin, and I’m pretty sure he’s the guy who date raped me in college.”
Alright – sometimes through the gloss of folksy charm, the gloves come off, and indeed, Kashian’s sharp wit and even sharper tongue are among some of the best things about watching her at her feisty finest. But, as you might expect from the mastermind behind The Dork Forest podcast, in between the edgier barbs, there are the openly adorkable bits on reading romance novels, Lord of the Rings references, and yes, a punchline or two about the boy wizard who inspired it all.
By Horcrux’s conclusion, it’s hard not to walk away feeling that bit of soul Kashian split in order to make her special. Ever the comedy pro, she certainly isn’t one to leave mischief unmanaged. Brava, Jackie. Voldemort himself could not have killed an audience so thoroughly. Download the special for $5 here.
editor’s note: The Laughspin Podcast is part of the all Things Comedy Network, the entity who released Kashian’s special. But we’ve been huge fans of Kashian well before that. So, feel free to call favoritism if you must.
Late-night talk show host and everyone’s favorite monstrously-tall red head Conan O’Brien will host the 2014 MTV Movie Awards in April. This will be his first time hosting on MTV, although he has hosted the Emmys before. “After eight years of intense negations, I am honored to announce I am hosting MTV’s second most prestigious awards show,” said O’Brien. The MTV Movie Awards ceremony, which was hosted by Rebel Wilson last year, airs live on April 13 at 9pm EST.
Wouldn’t you love a personalized video of birthday wishes from some of the country’s top comics? Jay Leno, Dane Cook, D.L. Hughely and a slew of other comedians did just that last night as the heartwarming story and video has gone viral. A Michigan boy named Colin turns 11 on March 9. He lives with sensory processing disorder, which makes it bit difficult for him to make friends at school. “He eats lunch alone in the office every day because no one will let him sit with them,” his mother wrote, “and rather than force someone to be unhappy with his presence, he sits alone in the office.”
When told there was “no point” in having a birthday party with no friends, his mother created a ‘Happy Birthday Colin’ Facebook page which has since exploded with more than 2 million likes.
One of the many people wishing Colin a happy birthday is Dave Williamson, a Los Angeles comedian, who found out that Colin wants to be a comic when he grows up. So he rounded up an enviable group of stand-ups to give this bullied boy some well-deserved birthday wishes. The video was uploaded to YouTube last night and has already garnered over 20,000 views! Check out the video below and click here to wish Colin a happy birthday yourself!
We reached out to Williamson to ask what inspired him to create the video. Here’s what he said:
I just found it refreshing that people were rallying around this Mom’s gesture and it was blowing up so fast, which usually only happens when a celebrity trips or goes to rehab. I was reading one of the articles and in a caption under a picture of Colin, his Mom said that he likes to make videos and humorous observations and may want to be a comedian one day. I thought it would be cool to make a video message for him and if I could get more recognizable comics to participate and do the same, I figured it would have more of an impact for him. I told the Comedy and Magic club and the Improv what I was doing and they were very cool about it. Nobody even hesitated when I asked them. A few had even already heard the story. So I just drove all over LA for a week and asked comics to help. So all in all, it was a very reinvigorating week for me and I felt the love in the comedy community. It didn’t take a lot of work and I spent zero dollars on it so why not put a little effort in to hopefully make an impact on somebody who seemingly deserves it? So many people have overcome similar challenges to become successful comics, why not Colin?
Whoever came up with the saying, “You can never have too much of a good thing,” obviously had never been on the Internet. In all of its glory, the Web has many addictive qualities to it. From its anonymity and endless outlets for just about any and every fantasy and desire known, its alluring appeal can be difficult to ignore.
As Downtown Milwaukee considers its first new strip club in a long time, I thought it would be fun to clear the air about some of the stereotypes strip clubs and strippers tend to have. Granted, there are stereotypes for a reason, right?

He’s Swiss outta luck.

I truly find it hard to believe that using drugs can cause a person to be so irresponsible they catch an STD. Of course I’m the glass is half full kinda of guy so sometimes I’m wrong.
I suggest reading this if for no other reason than the cool list of meth slang words at the bottom. Impress your friends by dropping “yellow baron” into your everyday conversations.
The Internet is the meet-up place for people who mix sex with methamphetamine either because they are trying to score the drug or chase a thrill that’s long gone.
The personal ads on Craigs-list Nashville use code words such as “parTy” to introduce people to meth through sex. The capital T in the middle of the word is a tipoff that someone is looking for a casual encounter while using “tina,” one of the many urban slang terms for meth. Another is “pnp,” which stands for “party and play.”
[Some claim the capital T stands for "Teener", as in 1/16th of an ounce, a common quantity in which meth is sold. -- ED]
The come-ons begin with an offer of a line or a toke. The burnouts are inevitable.
While methamphetamine may seem like an aphrodisiac at first, causing people to lower their inhibitions, it eventually shuts down the pleasure sensors in the brain. By the time burnout occurs, a meth user may have contracted a sexually transmitted disease. The drug increases the likelihood of infections, according to multiple medical studies.
Women who used meth were 48 percent more likely to have tested positive for gonorrhea and chlamydia than those who did not, according to one study published last year in a journal called Sexually Transmitted Diseases. It analyzed data on patients who visited clinics in Los Angeles County over a two-year period.
The links between use of the drug and HIV as well as syphilis have been well documented in males, especially men who have sex with men.
While most of these studies focused on urban areas, people living in rural areas also are putting themselves at risk.
That’s the conclusion of “Risky Sex in Rural America,” a study published last year in the American Journal on Addictions. It followed 710 stimulant users in rural areas of Arkansas, Ohio and Kentucky over a three-year period. The researchers got users to answer questions by paying them $50 for completing two- to three-hour survey sessions and $10 for travel expenses.
The study determined that meth users were almost 40 percent more likely to engage in sex than if they had not used the drug.
“Rates of inconsistent condom use were alarmingly high in this study sample, and the majority of current or former stimulant users continued to use condoms inconsistently over the study period,” the article concluded.
Pleasure and anxiety
Brock Searcy, a licensed professional counselor in Nashville, said the drug spurs the release of dopamine, a pleasure chemical, and norepinephrine , an anxiety chemical, into the central nervous system.
“A little bit of anxiety can be a good thing,” he said. “It’s like the butterflies when you first meet somebody. You even need a certain amount of norepinephrine to have an orgasm.”
Cocaine and other stimulants cause similar responses, but meth lasts longer and greatly impairs judgment.
“I have definitely worked with people who have done some things on meth that they regretted,” Searcy said.
Our view: Meth blinds us to others’ pain
Over time, the drug inhibits the brain’s ability to produce pleasure chemicals.
“You get to the kind of situation where you are burning out pleasure neurons possibly,” he said.
“There have been situations with depression and increased anxiety. Depression will completely kill your libido.”
Slang for meth
batu, bikers’ coffee, black beauties, chalk, chicken feed, crank, dope, go-fast, go-go, crystal, glass, hirpon, ice, methlies quick, poor man’s cocaine, shabu, shards, stove top, tina, trash, tweak, uppers, ventana, vidrio, yaba and yellow baron

This is the guy who messed it up for the rest of cabbies, there is now a cab driver sex ban..LOL Settle down Donny Long, this has nothing to do with you giving free rides to young boys on your scooter.
A council has slapped a no-sex ban on its cabbies after one was caught romping with a passenger on his back seat.The red-faced driver lost his license after he was caught with his trousers down outside the woman’s house in December.He had taken up her offer of sex instead of paying her fare – but it cost him his job with Hartlepool Council.
The North East authority has now sent a warning to all local taxi firms saying: “Any offers of sexual favours must be politely refused.”
The letter goes on: “I would draw your attention to one particular meeting which was discussed at the AGM – the issue of what would constitute unacceptable behavior by a taxi driver.
“A driver had his license revoked for having sex with a passenger in the back of his vehicle.
“I would ask you to ensure that any driver that works for you fully understands that any sexual contact with a passenger is unacceptable and is likely to result in the revocation of their licence.”
But one local cabbie said it was not uncommon for drunken passengers to flirt with cabbies when they realise they don’t have enough money to pay their fares.
He said: “It’s not uncommon for some of the lasses to offer the drivers things other than a fare when they make their way home from a night out.
“We see some right states when the pubs are closing, and its getting to the stage where we have to ask them if they have enough money to pay the fare before we set off to avoid any embarrassment later on.
“We heard a few tales like this one, but never known anyone who has had their licence taken off them for it.
“Normally this type of request gets laughed off by the drivers, but obviously temptation got the better of one of the lads!”
A spokesman for Hartlepool Council said: “We can confirm that a taxi driver has had his licence revoked after admitting having sex in his vehicle.
“Hartlepool Council expects the highest possible standards from taxi drivers and they have a vital role in protecting the public whilst carrying out their work.
“We have written to all taxi drivers in the town to remind them that we will not tolerate such behaviour and any sexual contact with a passenger is likely to result in their licence being revoked.”

The Food and Drug Administration has decided to allow generic versions of the most popular form of emergency contraceptive pills to be sold over the counter, without age restrictions, after all.
Last July, after a decade-long battle and under court order, the FDA of Plan B One-Step, which can prevent most pregnancies if taken within 72 hours of unprotected sex for women who weigh .
But in approving the product for sale without prescription, the FDA also granted Teva Pharmaceuticals, the drug’s maker, an additional three years of because it conducted an additional market study on the product’s use by teenagers.
Women’s health groups who had campaigned hard to make the product more widely available were disappointed in that decision because Plan B One-Step is considerably more expensive than its generic competition — often by at least $10.
But now the FDA has reconsidered. In an to those generic competitors sent earlier this week, Kathleen Uhl, acting director of the FDA’s Office of Generic Drugs, wrote that Teva’s contention that competitors should not be allowed to sell their products over the counter without age restrictions “is too broad.”
In something of a compromise, the FDA now says the generic versions of the product must still say on their labels that they are intended for “women 17 years of age or older,” but they may be sold directly from retail shelves without a requirement to produce proof of age.
Women’s health groups were generally pleased with the action. “This is a significant leap forward in obtaining full, over-the-counter status for emergency contraception and we commend the FDA for this decision,” said Jessica Arons, president and CEO of the . “Everyone deserves a second chance to get it right, including the FDA.”

Teachers should not tell teenagers to stop watching porn, according to U.K government-backed guidelines.
Pupils must instead be taught the difference between real-life relationships and the ‘distorted’ world of X-rated films.
This could involve playing card games in class to decide whether various sexual scenarios belong on ‘Planet Earth’ or ‘Planet Porn’.
