Hilarious one liners,never ending jokes and the over the top funny impressions.... There isn't a better way to kick off March than seeing funny man Tracy Morgan this weekend!
Out on the road and cracking up audiences everywhere, this fearless comic is coming right to you Boston! Morgan is perhaps best known for his role as Tracy Jordon on the award winning TV series 30 Rock. He has made quite the name for himself with is his racy humor and bawdy jokes. This one of a kind occasionally controversial stand up comic is for sure an act you need to see live!
The comedian, who rose to fame on Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock, is at the tail end of his Excuse My French tour, which makes a stop at the Wilbur Theatre this Saturday, March 1st. The stand-up show, he’s been quoted as saying, serves as a bit of a reintroduction to who he is—which is not Tracy Jordan, the outrageous character he played on “30 Rock.”
After being criticized for not having enough diversity in its cast, Saturday Night Live has announced the hiring of comedian Sasheer Zamata. Zamata will be the shows first black female cast member since Maya Rudolph left the show in 2007.
Auditions to find a black female to join the SNL cast were held in December after the show started receiving criticism because six new cast members that joined the cast last fall were all white.
Zamata graduated from the University of Virginia in 2009 and is Upright Citizens Brigade alum. She will make her debut on SNL on January 18 when Drake is scheduled to host and be the musical guest.
"I don't think anyone saw this coming," Jason Sudeikis said hilariously. "Quvenzhané Wallis, of course, the first African American, the first female, and first child Pope," a reporter at the scene explained.
Hart then made his debut dressed up as Wallis in her navy Giorgio Armani gown and carrying her favorite famed "puppy purse." Pope Quvenzhané then lifted her arms into her signature muscle man pose and then danced the Dougie. Hart then said, Who the man? I'm the man," in Latin.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock since SNL on Saturday you’ve probably heard about Daft Punk's cryptic teaser during Kevin Hart’s guest spot on the iconic sketch comedy show. Set to a disco beat, the clip shows a bright, white glittering Daft Punk logo slowly becoming incased into the split helmets worn by electro-legends Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter. Currently, the merged helmet artwork and the Columbia Records’ logo are the only things on their website.
Justin Bieber hosted SNL this past Saturday (Feb. 9) and his debut was very sucessful with a lot of laughs. Justin proved that he could make us laugh and croon us with one of his love songs. He has some pretty memorable sketches that poked fun at some of the issues going on in his personal life. The Biebs was a good sport however and proved he is a champ. Here are some of the best moments of the show.
1. His opening monologue poked fun at the fact that February is the month of love, Valentine's Day. Since Justin just got out of a very serious relationship, he used Black History Month and the romantic holiday to show he has a funny side.
So, the 70th Annual Golden Globes are exactly a month away and we couldn't be more excited that Amy Poehler and Tina Fey (who are both up for Best Comedy Series Actress) will be hosting! TV's funniest women will be taking charge this year and you can bet it will be one hell of a show.
The SNL alums first promo for the show has been released and it's no surpise the ladies are just a trip. Sure, we're rooting for our faves (Leo, Anne, Alec and Claire to name a few) but we're not afraid to admit we'll watching just for Amy and Tina's wild commentry!

Now for the real gear: a big important spreadsheet to click over to when your boss walks by...and some awesomely hilarious websites to help you get through lunch. And if laughter is the best medicine, look for the 10 sites with that pack the biggest punch. Here they are.
Could Kristen Wiig be joining the group of retired SNL stars gone movie stars?
According to Showbiz411’s Roger Friedman, this very well may be. The 38-year-old actress had joined the SNL crew back in 2005 and has since become one of the show’s brightest stars. Wiig has been nominated for three years consecutively in 2009, 2010, and 2011 for a Prime Time Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress for her work on Saturday Night Live. Kristen has brought to life some of the shows funniest characters such as Sue, the woman who could not control her excitement, Penelope, the nut who craves attention, and who can forget the mischievous high school girl Gilly. Wiig has also nailed her parodies of Kathie Lee Gifford and Michele Bachmann.
Over the past year, Kristen’s career has really taken off. Bridesmaids, which she co-wrote and starred in, has made her a household name as the funny chick. This movie had become Judd Apatow’s highest grossing movie. Quite impressive, considering all the hits Apatow has already created.
Kristen is already in the process of working on different projects outside of Studio 8H. IMDB states that Wiig has wrapped up with movie Revenge for Jolly! and is currently filming Imogene with Glee's Darren Criss, Matt Dillon, and Annette Bening. She will also be reprising her role of Ruffnut in How to Train Your Dragon 2, set to be released in 2014.
According to The Huffington Post, Kristin has already retired two of her recurring characters on SNL (Gilly and Penelope). So sad to see them go, but even more sad to see Kristen go. It is also said that Jason Sudeikis might be joing Kristen in her end-of-season graduation. Nothing has been completely confirmed as of yet. The two are very strong characters on the show and they will leave large shoes to fill, but hey -- the show much go on!
