Affordable Living in Great Amazon Rainforest Location

Greg Schwem | July 23, 2014 | Comedy
The property market in Brazil appears to be heating up and, mark my words, I plan to dive in with the zeal of seasoned real estate pros like Donald Trump or that Barbara woman from Shark Tank.

The Myth of Adulthood

Annie Battles | July 23, 2014 | Comedy

Purple Marker Haze

Beth Bartlett | July 23, 2014 | Comedy
'Don't sniff the brown scented markers,' I whisper before I slip over to the next aisle, where padded binders in bold patterns await. In a few minutes, I feel a presence beside me. 'You want some good stuff?' I nod. 'Staples starts their clearance Saturday. 8 a.m.'

Comic-Con is a haven for has-been and chagrined performers looking to capitalize on their fleeting fame and notoriety. Nowhere is this more evident than the John Wilkes Booth Booth, where fans can have their picture taken with a hologram of the murderous thespian.

By Jerry Zezima Over the river and through the woods to grandmother's house we go. My granddaughter, Chloe, doesn't have to take such a circuitous route to visit her grandmother, who also happens to be my wife, Sue, because our house is on a residential street and, besides, at 15...

Failure Is Just 'Sucksess': A TV/Film Writer's Lament

David S. Simon | July 23, 2014 | Comedy
Here's the plain, simple truth: most of us fail like unbroken clockwork most of the time. In fact you could say that the only thing that we succeed at with any regularity is failure.

Greg White | July 22, 2014 | Comedy
It's wedding season! Time to roll the dice down the aisle. Will this be the couple that lasts longer than a pair of TOMS shoes? Are the guests all in TOMS shoes? Are they mostly named Tom? Then you might be at a gay wedding. Take a gander: 1....

In Defense of Do Nothing

Chris Peak | July 22, 2014 | Comedy
Europeans are working less and are happier. They're sipping espressos and painting people in parks. Americans are working more and are less happy, and as you'd imagine, are trying to do things other countries are doing who are happy, like Bikram yoga, and deejaying.

#JFL42: Todd Barry Works the Crowd in a Festival Preview

Devon Murphy | July 22, 2014 | Canada
The good folks at JFL42 must have known Toronto was getting antsy for comedy, because they offered up a taste of the festival -- an amuse-bouche, if you will -- just this past week. I was ever-so-lucky to see one of the best in the biz, festival alumni Todd Barry.

Sara Starkman | July 22, 2014 | Comedy

My Week as a Temporary Bachelorette

Amy Arndt | July 22, 2014 | Comedy
Relaxed and worry-free, I took up temporary residency in Nordstrom Rack. I was in absolutely no hurry whatsoever. Instead of rushing around in search of a specific pair of black pants for a work trip, I casually flipped through the evening dresses as if I planned on wearing fuchsia sequins on Thursday.
