BUST cover woman Amy Schumer truly is the master of comedic timing. In the wake of Mother's Day, only she could come up with a sketch for tonight's new episode of Inside Amy Schumer that covers an innocent topic--the technological generation gap--with such fierce wit.  The sketch is as much about moms as it is technology. Schumer pinpoints all those wonderfully cringeworthy things moms do: touch your hair and clothes without your permission, ask for ... Read More

When the cast of 30 Rock bid a last adieu to their Thursday night slot on NBC...everything basically shattered for me. First The Office, now this? Suddenly, Parks & Recreation had to pull a lot of the comedy weight for the widely-acknowledged funniest network on the telly. And I suddenly had an extra hour and a half to fill every week, twiddling my thumbs in the absence of a Liz Lemon laugh riot.  It's been a rough few years, but finally -- does one ... Read More
Bad Lip Reading is back and as uproarious as ever.  The first time I watched Twilight I was helping out at a birthday party for 13- year- old girl, so I was without a doubt scarred for life. Robert Patterson was ruined forever. Thankfully, Bad Lip Reading came to my rescue. This video is the only way I could ever watch 7 minutes of the Twilight series without cringing.  The clip is full of hilarious lines and even a couple of tambourine song numbers. ... Read More

When comedian Liza Dye of NYC's Upright Citizens Brigade was struck by a B train on February 13, the New York Post said she was nothing more than a "straphanger" who didn't have her wits about her. In fact, the opposite is true. The very witty Liza Dye was not even looking at her phone that morning. Actually, she's so witty that she even joked with the passengers whose train she inadvertently delayed: "I'm sorry I made you late for work!" If you were in the New ... Read More
Ok, so this is pretty much gold.  "Royals" gets an overhaul by three women of color actresses--Tess Paras, Haneefah Wood and Ayana Hampton--who use the song to comment on typecasting and representation in Hollywood.  "I'm gonna play the white girl's nerdy friend[Of course][Obviously]I'm gonna play the white girl's other friendWho is sassy[Omigod, you nailed that]"  In a funny but disturbingly true rendition, we are all reminded that gender and race ...

Allow me to console your wind-burned faces with a little comedy, courtesy of Hari Kondabolu. This video is not particularly new, but a little bit of Kondabolu never hurt anyone. Seriously.
