What self-respecting woman really, truly wants to compete for hours on end with smart-ass cynics sporting obscure band tee-shirts and Galifanakabeards, all too terrified to laugh out loud at each other?

Over the past few months, my heart has gone out to the U.S. nuns. Since the recent review from the Vatican, I have wanted to express to them how meaningful their work is and just how profoundly grateful I am for their history of impact on my life and so many others.

Workaholics -- The Funniest Show on TV

Joe Winkler | Posted 08.20.2012 | TV
Joe Winkler

Workaholics is hands down the funniest, least predictable, most exciting comedy on TV right now. Not the most important, or the wittiest or the most politically relevant, but it retains the highest laugh per minute ratio, all in a deceptively genius manner.

Marlo Thomas

As someone who grew up around comedians, I learned a lot about which topics were surefire winners with audiences (marriage, dating, mothers-in-law), and which ones were edgier (religion, sex and politics). There are tons of laughs to be mined from the latter, but comics are always careful to walk a fine line between being funny and offensive -- and the best ones know how to walk it perfectly.

On a more serious note, to the dad from New Jersey smoking a cigar while pushing your daughter in a stroller: Will you be my muse? You pushed me to the next level. After I judged your behavior, I was in the zone. Nobody and nothing was getting passed me.

I began filling out the usual "new patient" paper work. You know, the form where you give away all of the intimate details of your life. A new survey at the end has me worried.

We are on the verge of a zombie apocalypse, and I couldn't be happier. For I, you see, am a zombie, or, as we prefer to be called by you brains on legs, Shuffling-Undead-American.

Ricky Gervais

First the bad news... I don't think I'm going to do a fourth series of The Ricky Gervais Show. 39 episodes is more than I've ever done for any other project (Yes. I know that's pathetic but trust me.) and I don't want to push my luck.

The Internet has turned into a Roman coliseum where everyone watches people fight it out; who will get the thumbs up or the thumbs down? People need comedy, but much of what's left online is the total opposite.

Last week, every single GOP Senator voted against the Paycheck Fairness Act, an act that would make it hard for companies to continue to practice pay discrimination, which is a thing where companies pay women less cause they have teet teets and a nana.
