BILL HADER AND KRISTEN WIIG’S FRIENDSHIP TO ENVY

Buzzfeed recently posted the gag reel from The Skeleton Twins DVD. The DVD doesn’t come out until Dec. 2, but Buzzfeed News were able to get their hands on the exclusive clips. Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig were two of my favorites from SNL. They are both incredibly funny on their own, but together it hurts your stomach to watch. However, laughing that hard provides a nice little ab workout. The two have a type of humor that harmonizes well with one another and it just very entertaining to watch.

THE “MOTHERFUNNY” WOMEN IN COMEDY

Thanksgiving is next week and I couldn’t be more excited. I’m in love with the fact that there is a Holiday designed for Americans to just eat. That probably isn’t technically correct, but I see a free pass to be a glutton one day of the year and I am going to use it. This year, our family decided to just have separate Thanksgivings. I can’t really blame them since nobody enjoys a drive home with a food baby ready to bust buttons. However, this new every-household-for-themselves tradition has got me pretty nervous. This household, my household, has somewhat of an unfair advantage. My home contains one mom with two adult children who cannot cook.

Of course my mom is totally calm about the whole thing, and her confidence always reassures me. Somehow she knows that Thanksgiving dinner is going to be ready at 5 p.m. sharp, with sides beautifully prepared, and a turkey cooked to perfection. It will all be done thanks to that freaky mom force that makes Superman look inadequate. You know, the same force that could get you fed, groomed, and ready for school in 20 min. The same amount of time it now takes me to just get out of bed.

FOO FIGHTERS ARE THE ROCK STARS OF MUSIC AND COMEDY

Foo Fighters have been celebrating their 20th anniversary this year. They did so by putting out a new album, Sonic Highways, which coincided with their HBO documentary series and they have just announced their 2015 North American tourIn an ever-changing music industry dominated by pop they continue to inspire and push out successful rock albums.

Their 11 Grammys must be rewarding but insignificant compared to their pure love and joy they have for music, which is why they continue to stick around an industry that favors everything young and new.

MAKING FUNNY MUSIC SURE SEEMS FUN (NY)

Some people get lucky that what they love doing as a hobby can turn into a full time job. I would say that was true for artists such as The Lonely Island, Weird Al, and Flight of the Conchords. Music is not the most typical way to make it in comedy, which is why most of these artists were just doing it for fun and completely unaware of where it would take them. As much as I love music, and as much as I love comedy, I’d prefer to see Coldplay at The Forum and not at The Laugh Factory. That being said, I’d have to admit that there have been exceptions.
