Clint Eastwood gives free publicity to fake awards show

The coveted "Guy's Choice Awards," which rewards celebrities who have the best publicist, got a kick in the pants the other day when Clint Eastwood made a joke about Catlin Jenner. It was a nothing of a joke. The biggest problem with it was that it wasn't funny, I mean it made no sense. He just said a name of a famous person that he couldn't remember b/c he's old.

Spike TV,who airs the "awards" show, quickly pulled the joke and then told everyone about it. Seriously , has does anyone know about it, unless they told everyone about it?
I've been in the edit rooms. It's usually a couple of producers and the editor. What happened? Was the producers tweeting the editor?
.@Donnyeditor Whatever you do, don't tell anyone that you cut that @Catlinjenner joke #guyschoiceawards. #jkdo

I guess Jamie Foxxxxxx got a lot of press when he made his childish Bruce Jenner joke on the equally made up "I Heart Radio Awards." Which should be called, "Did Pitbull show up yet?"

Ok, must sleep. good night!

Is Louis CK an under rated perv?


Jezebel and other sites have been alleging that a certain comedian has been some crazy stuff. I have no idea if that's true. 


I had lunch with an old boss last week. We were talking about the Duggers. "Look, if you hire right wing nuts like the Duck Dynasty guys or white trash like Honey Boo Boo, you can't be surprised when they says crazy Christian stuff or date pediphiles." He was saying the way the Duggers handled their son, should have been expected.

I have the same reaction to Louis CK. Louis' comedy is totally honest about his weird sex shit. His persona is a sad perv. So we know it's possible. I'm surprised it hasn't been a bit yet. Cosby, like the Duggers, stood on a mountaintop and cast judgement on everyone and claimed to be perfect. Then he RAPED people. Lots of people. I think Louis should get a head of this like Lena Dunham and do a bit about it. 

If Howard Stern cheated on his wife, we wouldn't be so surprised. When Letterman came out with his affair, people were surprised. 

Also, has comedy become listening to someone narcissism? WTF or Girls, Patton Oswalt or Aziz or whatever, is just them telling us about them. Sometimes they try to make it funny. Like why did Lenan Dunham feel she should tell that awful story in her book?

Comedy is finally good

Amy Schumer, Amy Schumer, Amy Schumer!
Megan Garber, who wrote the article in the Atlantic ("How Comedians Became Public Intellectuals")about comedians being the new intellectuals was interviewed today on the radio.  First of all, she doesn't really commit to anything.

Also, just so know comedians are now talking about politics. The author pointed out that comedy addresses politics now unlike the comedy of the 90's. Forgetting that Chris Rock put out "Bigger and Blacker," Bill Maher had "Politically Incorrect," George Carlin was still touring, Dennis Miller had a show too... 

At one point Garber describes a bit from Amy Schumer they just played as "Not fun or entertaining... but important." That's what Paul Mooney has been doing since the 70's. I want Paul mooney to be the new Amy Schumer.
