    The movie is a mess but it’s My Kind Of Mess. It’s like a S. Craig Zahler film without all the ferociousness and fascism. 

    A pretty impressive debut from Clark Duke, who created a very low-key and weirdly fun (fun-ly weird?) atmosphere and also got probably the best performance out of Vince Vaughn in years.

    Richard Pryor: Live in Concert


    What other special can you see a comedian stop in the middle of a bit to turn the house lights on and say hi to — and to thank — Huey P. Newton in the front row. 

    Blessed comedian, blessed liberation party. We weren’t worthy of either of them.

    Ricky Gervais: Humanity

    the sacrifice and bravery it must have taken this straight white male millionaire to stomp around and pout on stage for an hour while simultaneously decrying “victim culture” and  “sensitive people” because his unfunny jokes are unfunny. Poor bloke. Keep Ricky in your prayers.
