‘Sarah Silverman: A Speck Of Dust’: Put A Pin On Whatever You’re Doing And Watch Sarah Silverman’s First Netflix …

 

Sarah Silverman: A Speck of Dust

The 2016 presidential election gave Sarah Silverman an even bigger platform than she’d had in the previous two campaigns. The comedian best known previously for taking on taboos with sly snark or for portraying herself on TV in The Sarah Silverman Program had twice taken to YouTube and Funny or Die to implore her fans to get out the vote for Barack Obama. Silverman stepped it up last year, though, not only stumping on the campaign trail for Bernie Sanders, but also speaking at the Democratic National Convention – alongside fellow former Saturday Night Live colleague and current U.S. Senator Al Franken.

Her activism prompted death threats against her over Twitter, which she references at the beginning of her first Netflix special, Sarah Silverman: A Speck of Dust. “When

To promote Season 12 of America’s Got Talent, the four judges (Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, Mel B, and Howie Mandel) went on ExtraTV for a group interview. They were joined on the set by AGT’s new emcee Tyra Banks who is replacing Nick Cannon. The official AGT Facebook account shared a clip of the interview (see below). Howie acts goofy as usual by demonstrating his modeling skills – walking the catwalk and smizing (smiling with your eyes).

Biblio File: Wounded warrior fights against injustice in ‘Four Corners From LBJ’ – Chico Enterprise



Paradise writer Marty Beebe calls his novel “a saga of war and redemption.” “Four Corners From LBJ” ($9.95 in paperback, self-published through CreateSpace; also for Amazon Kindle), begins in the summer of 1967 with Benson Baker, 19, enlisting in the U.S. Army.

“He volunteered for active duty and soon became just another hired gun. Deployed to South Vietnam … he had been gung-ho and followed orders, but only for a short time. … Dealing with intolerable deportment, he turned against some of his superiors.”

His actions at the “Long Bin US Military Supply Complex” land him in the mythical

Farewell to ‘2 Broke Girls,’ the filthiest show on network TV

On a recent episode of “2 Broke Girls,” Max (Kat Dennings) complained to her fellow waitress, Caroline (Beth Behrs), that work at the diner was boring because they had no customers.

“First of all, you’re forgetting the pack of dogs that wandered in, had an orgy and left,” Caroline said.

“Probably easy for me to forget, cause I wasn’t the one they tried to have sex with!” Max replied.

The laugh track roared over that exchange, which occurred in the first 10 seconds of the episode. As far as shock-value, it barely registered. In fact, it’s more challenging to stumble upon a scene from “2 Broke Girls” that doesn’t have a lewd comment. The sitcom, canceled last week after six seasons, will be remembered — more than anything else — for its sheer quantity of raunchy jokes. Glamour once ran an article titled “So Exactly

Eastenders’ Mick Carter made a naughty joke about Holly Willoughby on last night’s show




By Cathy Donohue

Were you watching last night’s episode?

The Albert Square residents are full of Christmas cheer this week and as is standard practice for many, Mick Carter had a last-minute Christmas present dilemma during last night’s episode.

Chatting to sister Tina and daughter Whitney, he asked them to help him get a gift for his wife Linda.

Whitney happened to mention that Holly Willougby had a necklace similar to one stolen from Linda in a recent robbery.

This was prime time for Mick to chime in with “top marks for just noticing the necklace eh” and Linda replied “”ooh yea lovely errrr lady” while holding her chest.

Of course, viewers had a giggle at the scene and I wonder if Holly’s heard about the reference yet…

Life in Pieces Season 2 Preview with Dan Bakkedahl – Today’s …

CBS’ charming family sitcom Life in Pieces whips out some big guns in its Season 2 premiere Thursday. First, there’s real-life married duo/comedic treasure Megan Mullally and Nick Offerman scoring laughs in the very first scenes as an extremely unsettling husband and wife with a very unusual marriage. Then the quirky sitcom whips something else out: a series of awkward (and hilarious) events that bring attention to the, uh, anatomy of its main male characters.

In that story’s climax, Tim’s (Dan Bakkedahl) brothers-in-law Greg (Colin Hanks) and Matt (Thomas Sadoski) stumble on the discovery that he’s… shall we say much more gifted than anyone would’ve ever thought. Now Tim’s kin sees him in a whole new light and Bakkedahl ‘s first instinct, he told TVGuide.com, was to amplify the moment. “In the first take,” he said, “I’m basically sitting on it. And I’m like, ‘Ow!”
