Nothing unusual about a 6' 9" janitor walking around calling himself the Mailman. Nope. Not at all. Karl Malone got the drop on Anthony Davis by posing as the maintenance man — a little different from his job dominating the paint in the NBA.
When Kevin Hart started his interview series Cold As Balls, you knew it wasn't going to be behind a desk. Kevin and Blake Griffin sat down in their own ice baths for a hard-hitting talk about the NBA draft, how Blake feels about not playing for his home state of Oklahoma, and whether Draymond Green has ever kicked him in the groin. Hart also sat down with Lavar Ball about raising a brood of ballers and which one is his least favorite son.
Comedy doesn't always need a punchline. The great physical comics — Chaplain, Keaton, et al — used, out of necessity, a comedy of personality. Rowan Atkinson, famous for his character Mr. Bean, is a master of personality. In the comedy of Atkinson, its the character that's the joke.
America will not have to wait again. Dave Chappelle is closing out 2017 with not one, but two stand-up specials.

If two things were meant to go together, it's Home Alone-style traps and wrestling. Not only are they finally together, but it's Macaulay Culkin himself interfering in a match with a bucket of rolly balls. Merry Christmas, ya filthy animals.
If there's one takeaway from WIRED's autocomplete interview with the cast of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, it's that the majority of Google users have terrible grammar. But the cast does their best trying to interpret and answer the badly worded top searches while not letting any big plot points slip.

We all take breaks every now and again. But usually, they don't last 25 years. That's how long it's been since Jud Apatow did stand up.

Although he's not so sure about the storyline, his overall reaction can be summed it up in one word — raw.

There's no one quite like you — not even all the other tattooed, skinny jeaned, horn-rim glasses, 80s hairstyled, iPhone-toting, selfie-taking, denim jacket-wearing, bearded, and pierced people. In other words, you're unique. Just like everyone else wearing the uniform. And Dissolve created this faux ad that mocks the ever-cringworthy nature of youth advertising as a testament to your individuality.
There was a time when Jerry Seinfeld wasn't the star of the greatest TV show of all time. Before he was even a stand-up comic, he was a middle-class funny kid from a big family on Long Island. In his first Netflix special, Jerry returns to the place he loves the most — the small stage — and the people that made him who he is. Jerry Before Seinfeld premieres September 19, 2017.

Things you didn't know but know now — Amy Poehler is actually Jack Black and the sister of Louis C.K. Will Ferrell was born in a Cancer and was born in 1980. The internet might ask silly questions, but Will and Amy have the serious answers in this autocorrect interview with WIRED magazine.
In a world where everything from your lightbulb to your water bottle can be connected to the internet, eventually, enough is enough. A wifi antenna doesn't make something smart — and often just makes it more of a pain to use than the "dumb" version. This spot for Swedish tech company Semcon reminds us that being smart doesn't mean simply being connected — it has to be usable by humans too.
It's summertime, and summertime means water. And balloons. The Slow Mo Guys ring in the warm weather in the best way possible — with a massive six-foot water balloon.
It isn't exactly Litchfield Penitentiary, but it's pretty close. Piper Snackman has a mission when she comes to Litchfield Academy: Getting the students to snack a little healthier. Sesame Street puts their own slightly softer take on Netflix's hit series in this parody of Orange is the New Black.
Siri, Alexa, Google Home, Microsoft's Cortana — they're great at answering questions, calling you a Uber, ordering food, and a myriad of other useful functions. But they're all terrible and getting a laugh. To put these virtual assistants to the test, WIRED got their best material and took it to a standup comedy club in LA.
When our entire political system is a joke, it follows that comedians would be the people best-equipped to cover it. The bizarre chaos of cable news, with screaming heads desperately trying scream over top of one another, is more confusing and off-putting than helpful — and there's research to back it up. Meanwhile, a healthy dose of satire can sharpen your brain and make you a more critical thinker. Vox looks at how comedians are taking Walter Cronkite's place as the most easy-to-follow source of news.
Louis C.K. is the next major comedian to join Netflix's roster of stand-up specials. But if you were hoping to get a taste of some his new comedic gems, you're out of luck.

Normally, getting medical advice from a comedian wouldn't be a good idea — except when the comedian you're asking is also a doctor.
