    Paul Shaffer has shared the stage with so many big names that it's probably easier to list the stars he hasn't worked with. How many television sidekicks can boast to having played with both Andy Kaufman and his alter-ego, Tony......
  • Rudy Ray Moore: The original king of blaxploitation movies

     
    When I was in high school, one of my pals was considered the coolest kid in our circle, largely because he had a cache of Redd Foxx and Rudy Ray Moore party records. If you've never heard these comedy records......
  • Dear Andy Kaufman, I Hate Your Guts

    Comedian and Andy Kaufman Award finalist Claire Titelman is delightfully weird. Taking the stage with an awkward gait and the occasional calico jumper, she doles out droll sets of doe-eyed off-kilter comedy, gently harassing audience members and musing on...
  • Comedy Meltdown at Meltdown Comics

     
    Like a bunker of humor, the hidden back room of Meltdown Comics feels like a speakeasy for stand-up. This month's Comedy Meltdown event, hosted by comedian and "Web Soup" writer Jonah Ray, involves a roster of worthwhile minds including Whitney Cummings,...
  • Mighty Mouse on the Big Screen? Paramount’s here to save the…

     
    Another TV cartoon of the distant past (more distant, even, than the controversial Ralph Bakshi revival of the 80s) is headed for the big screen. Apparently, Alvin and the Chipmunks or something has inspired Paramount to put the metal to the metal on a...
  • He's back: Kenny 'K-Strass' Strasser, yoyo master strikes again

     
    Hysterically funny video clip of Kenny "K-Strass" Strasser, ersatz "yoyo master" and Andy Kaufman-esque prankster punking a local newscast. I love how the newscaster valiantly soldiers on here. Once kids have heard his nerdy, white guy rap, they're "ready...
  • Stan Winston and the tricky business of Legacy

    The creature creators at Stan Winston Studio specialize in Hollywood miracles -- they brought dinosaurs to life for "Jurassic Park" and turned metal men into movie history with "Iron Man" and "The Terminator" -- but their next trick will be their...
  • Is Joaquin Phoenix the new Andy Kaufman?
