Chris Martin can get it.

The 43rd Annual American Music Awards was "live" from L.A. (don't get us started) and hosted by Jennifer Lopez aka J. Lo aka Jenny from the block aka I kept changing my outfit and they were all, meh. After last year's show, we made it a rule to never tune in again but as we all know, rules get broken. And plus we heard we weren't going to have to endure dancing Taylor Swift audience shots because she wasn't going to be there.

Sarah Colonna Doesn't Do Skype Sex

What, am I an accident?
Comedian and best-selling author Sarah Colonna is at it again with her first hour long special, I Can't Feel My Legs, premiering on Comedy Dynamics Tuesday, October 27th. Sarah is offering up candid, relatable hilarity and we're here to suggest that you set those DVR's now. After watching her special ourselves, we can't help but to feel we want to know her better. And what better way to do that than to hit this quick witted woman with a random round of quick questions? Yes. That was rhetorical.

OC Weekly (Ali Lerman): Real quick, I was just noticing with I Can't Feel My Legs and Has Anyone Seen My Pants it seems like you might have a lower torso fetish.

Sarah Colonna: I know right? I didn't even think about that honestly, I just thought it was a funny title. Later on I was like, oh pants, yeah. I actually named it before that song "I Can't Feel my Face" came out and now I feel like I copied that but, that's OK.

Tom Green Headlines Comedy For Autism Night at Historic Fox Fullerton Theatre

Categories: Comedy

Five years ago, Boyd Houser was a non-verbal 2-year-old diagnosed with autism. Today, while still autistic, Boyd is speaking and writing. And while it's a stretch to say that laughter has played the key role in his development, his father, Larry Houser, can't be blamed for making a connection.
His ability to "learn to read and write is a result of what we've helped accomplish," says the elder Houser, an owner of Bourbon Street and a founder of Fullerton Cares, a Fullerton-based non-profit foundation devoted to raising money and awareness about autism, which is hosting its fifth comedy night tonight, at the Fox Fullerton Theatre. This is the third year the event, which has raised some $75,000 for the 12 elementary and junior high schools that comprise the Fullerton School District, has been held at the stately 1925 movie palace, which closed in 1987, was saved from the wrecking ball in 2004, and is currently in the midst of being restored under the auspices of the grassroots organization the Fullerton Historic Theatre Foundation.

Sal Vulcano REALLY Hates Continental Breakfast

I cannot get with the words of today like whip, nae nae, bae, and fleek. It'll never happen!
When four guys grow up together there is a chance that they will jokingly harass each other at some point. When it comes to The Tenderloins (Sal Vulcano, Joe Gatto, James Murray and Brian Quinn aka truTV's Impractical Jokers), that chance raises to 100%. If you've never seen the hidden reality show, it basically revolves around the four friends taking dares and pranks to ridiculous levels. Never one to turn down a great challenge or a good laugh, we talked to Vulcano before this troupe hits Club Nokia on October 23rd for two shows of hilarity. Since we know he's is up for anything, we figured he wouldn't mind explaining a few things to us like his nickname, his tweets, and his phobias. We even got some awesome bonus info on his mama and we already like her. A lot.

OC Weekly (Ali Lerman): My dad is also from Staten Island and if I didn't mention that he'd disown me. He also thinks he's down with Wu-Tang Clan so, yeah. He'll claim you.

Sal Vulcano: He should! [Laughs.] That's great! All of our friends and family, you know, the people who don't make the negative stereotypes live there too! We gotta all stick together. I think Staten Island is contributing a lot to the comedy world right now too. We're having a little comedic renaissance.

Why The Gentleman Jerry Rocha Is Not Into Gentlemen's Magazines

Leave some for everyone else.
There's a lot to be said about being a gentleman when it comes to comedian Jerry Rocha. Before his special "Gabriel Iglesias Presents: The Gentleman Jerry Rocha" airs this Saturday October 17th, we gave him a jingle to see exactly what we would be signing up for. From his definition of the word he put in his special, to nudes, Twitter, acting comics, and friendship, we hit him with it all and since he passed our test, we'll for sure be tuning in. And after you read this, we think you'll want to also.

OC Weekly (Ali Lerman): Your press release says you're a gentleman depending on how you define the word "gentleman." I'm gonna need to know how you personally define the word "gentleman" so I can properly form an opinion.

Jerry Rocha: I mean, it's kind of a joke because when I was a kid, one of the wrestlers that was popular was "Gentleman" Chris Adams. I thought that was such a cool name so I always wanted to name a stand-up special that. Also, I talk about a lot of irreverent things and there are a lot of tragic dating stories in there too so I thought it would just kind of fit perfectly.

Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival Slayed in Irvine

Sorry, I couldn't take a picture so this will have to do.
This Sunday, comedy fans from OC and beyond descended on this year's Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival brought to us once again by the fine folks over at Funny or Die. Sure the temperature was a balmy 98 degrees but not to worry mom and dad, the masses stayed hydrated with $16 beers.

Hydration and tons of grub choices aside, this year's side "Festival Stage" was sponsored by Redd's Apple Ale and was ruled by comedian and host Big Jay Oakerson. While attempting to maneuver through the packed crowd, our ears were treated to this year's line-up that consisted of Joe Sib, Brady Matthews, Ester Steinberg, and Hampton Yount. They were great but come on now, we know why we're all here...

Festival Supreme Improves Supremely at the Shrine

Festival Supreme
October 25, 2014
Shrine Expo Hall & Grounds

Last Saturday at the Shrine, the word "hot" was used in many ways while the third annual Festival Supreme was taking place. It was hot as fuck outside, the line-up was unbelievably hot, the crowd was hot (seriously, we were all sweaty pigs), and Big Freedia shook her ass hotter than a mother fucker.

We feel that we must start out with admitting that we did not get to see every act at this supreme ass festival but it was simply because it was not at all possible. With overlapping times, we were once again forced to pick and choose what we saw and quickly run to another stage and so on and so on. For four stages. In the 100 degree heat. And for that reason, we're going to break it down for you stage by stage on what we witnessed. Explanation aside, what we did see, we were delighted with. OK, review over! Kidding...

Raunchy Randomness with Jim Norton

He'll never love himself as much as I hate myself.
When east coast phenom Jim Norton is in our fair town, we take notice. And not to be bias should too. This weekend at the Irvine Improv, Norton is showcasing his svelte new look along with an arsenal of new material and if you are in the mood to do some hardy laughing without hardly getting offended, this man's set is right up your alley. We got together with little Jimmy (seriously, have you seen this man lately??) at the last minute and hit him with a round of randomness and what he gave us in return, well, it was nothing short of riotous.

Getting Random With Paul Reiser

It's better to not even go there.
We're wild about Paul Reiser around these parts (please note we didn't use the cliché "mad" about) and with his return to TV via the FX series "Married" and his upcoming role in "Red Oaks," we couldn't be more pleased about getting our fix of the legendary comedian. He's also been gracing the stand-up stage as of late and you can catch him this time around at the Irvine Improv for one night only this Thursday, October 1st. Instead of going straight Q&A like the last time we talked to Paul, this time we got random with Reiser to see how he'd fare. Color us schooled because this old school dude had new school skills and he let us have it. Literally and figuratively.

Gabriel Iglesias Uses Twitter to Keep Trim on His New TV Show

To his credit though, it's like he'll eat anything!
Forever Fluffy but as of late with less weight to carry, Gabriel Iglesias is embarking on a new adventure while in the midst of his already adventurous life. Premiering on Fuse TV on Thursday, October 1st (10pm/9c), Fluffy Breaks Even gives you a chance to travel along with Iglesias for the full behind the scenes experience as he hits the road, meets new people, and attempts to eat as healthy as possible. Seems like an impossible task but with plenty of late-night workouts and his tour mates by his side, we have no doubt that Fluffy can in fact break even. Before the big premiere, we got him to break the concept down for us, talked social media, and all things food because, well, just hearing about his new show made us hungry.
