Bob Odenkirk, David Cross, How Did This Get Made?, more coming to Onion Comedy & Arts Festival

Big news, comedy fans: Our comedy festival returns May 30-June 3 at various venues in Chicago under a new name, The Onion Comedy & Arts Festival. Why change the name from the amusing-but-difficult-to-remember-and-Google 26th Annual Comedy Festival? Well one, see above. And two, it’s The Onion’s 30th anniversary in…

Black-ish looks at its own self-righteousness


Black-ish is back after a short break! “ToysRn’tUs” is a great return to form for the show. It feels like a typical Black-ish episode––Dre and Bow get caught up in a political fury while the kids do their own thing––but “ToysRn’tUs” turns Black-ish’s critical eye on itself. After Diane receives a white doll for her…

Casey Wilson and June Diane Raphael are developing a comedy for Hulu

Some anonymous rich person wants to fund a Happy Endings movie

Every time there’s even a tiny hint at a chance of a Happy Endings revival, we start krumping and busting out the celebratory drunk ribs, only to then find out it was all a sick joke. On Entertainment Tonight yesterday, Casey Wilson shared some potentially ah-mahzing news: A super-rich person has offered to fund a Happy Endings movie

5 episodes that show why we’re still mourning Happy Endings

In 5 To Watch, five writers from The A.V. Club look at the latest streaming TV arrivals, each making the case for a favored episode. The reasons for their picks might differ, but they can all agree that each episode is a must-watch. In this installment: Happy Endings, which started streaming on Hulu this month.

Yep, “Baby It’s Cold Outside” is still the worst

At this point, hopefully everyone knows that “Baby It’s Cold Outside” is a non-stop creepfest. What masquerades as a cheerful little holiday ditty is really a hellscape of a song with messages of entrapment and date rape, and almost murderous undertones.
