Queen Latifah and Jada Pinkett-Smith reunites for another film since ‘Set it Off’.

The lovely actresses team up with two more beautiful and hilarious women, Regina Hall and Tiffany Haddish, for ‘Girls’ Trip’, a light-hearted comedy about four girlfriends take a trip to New Orleans for an annual festival and, along the way, rediscover their wild sides and strengthen the bonds of sisterhood. The Will Packer-produced film hits theaters July 21st!

 

As Michelle Obama prepares to make her final exit out of The White House, The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon had to do a proper send off for our First Lady that included a serenade by Stevie Wonder.

“When I think about the fact that some of them are afraid about what’s to come … I don’t want them to be afraid,” Michelle says during Wednesday’s show. “I want them to embrace the future and know that the world is getting better. We have bumps in the road, we have ups and downs. But I want our kids to move forward, I don’t care where they come from, with strength and with hope.”

 

“I didn’t think it was going to be that emotional. It’s been surprisingly emotional for all of us in ways that we didn’t expect.” She adds.

 

Fallon took the time to express his thanks to our First Lady during his epic “Thank You Notes” segment.

“Thank you, Mrs. Obama, for being a smart, strong, independent woman, an activist, a style icon, and a great dancer. And showing us all what it would look like if Beyoncé had married a much nerdier Jay Z,” Fallon joked.

 

“That’s my boo! Mom jeans and all.” Michelle replies with laughter.

In this next video, The First Lady shares how emotional it has been to say goodbye after eight years as FLOTUS and why one of her daughters, Sasha, missed her dad’s last presidential speech.

If you’re a fan of HBO’s new show, ‘Insecure’, then you have gotten to know the funny, sassy, and overly-sexual character Molly, played by funny and adorable actress, Yvonne Orji.

First, can I just say how happy I am that ‘Insecure’ has been picked up for season 2???

Anyway, if you’re not hip to the show (as you should be), Yvonne’s character is best friends with the lead character, Issa Rae, who plays the fictional version of herself. ‘Insecure’ is based off Issa’s web series, which has garnered a lot of praise from fans and critics alike.

You’ll be pleasantly surprised to know that Yvonne is the total opposite of her character, Molly, who seems to have trouble making the right choices with the men in her life. In real life, Yvonne is a proud virgin and confesses to have never masturbated!

Read part of her interview with ‘The Breakfast Club’

Charlamagne: In my research of you I found out you’re a virgin
Yvonne: True story
Charlamagne: And you a hoe on the show? Okay, not hoe…
Yvonne: She not a hoe!
Charlamagne: Sexually free

Charlamagne: You ever played with yourself?
Yvonne: No actually I don’t.
Angela Yee: You’re a masturbation virgin also?
DJ Envy: You have never masturbated? You lie!
Yvonne: I promise you.

Charlamagne then asks how people know she is a virgin, and Yvonne responds that it’s not something she hides.

“I don’t hide it… the same way people know somebody had a one night stand. It’s like you can say that and I can say no absolutely I haven’t.”

Watch Yvonne’s full interview below. She discusses her virginity between marks 1:30 and 8:30.

 

The Kings of Comedy reunited for a special taping of ‘The Steve Harvey Show’ in remembrance of their fellow funny man, the Late Bernie Mac.

Bernie Mac’s family, including his wife Rhonda, his daughter Je’Neice and Bernie’s granddaughter, Jasmine, stopped by to talk about the Bernie Mac Foundation, set up in Bernie’s memory to combat the disease that attacked his lungs and eventually took his life, Sarcoidosis. In addition, Another legendary comedian, MIKE EPPS, joins the conversation via satellite, live from Bernie and Rhonda’s alma mater, the Chicago Vocational High School on the Southside of Chicago. As a surprise to Bernie’s family, Mike Epps and the principal of the school revealed that the auditorium will be renamed in Bernie’s honor.

And, since Bernie was a Chicagoan through and through, Steve will reveal that Mayor Rahm Emanuel proclaimed today, November 14, as “Bernie Mac Day” in Chicago!

Watch the emotional clip below

 

Legendary comedian, Dave Chappelle, made his iconic ‘Saturday Night Live’ debut and it’s definitely an appearance we’ll never forget.

Much like his sorely missed ‘Dave Chappelle Show’, his opening monologue on SNL served comedic truth, blunt humor, and basically said everything that was on the mind of every other Black American.

 

In this epic sarcastic skit, Dave is joined by another legendary comedian, Chris Rock, as “two friends” who are obviously unbothered by the election results.

 

In this next skit, Dave turns into Negan from ‘The Walking Dead‘ who tortures his famous ‘Dave Chappelle Show’ characters.

What was your favorite part of Dave’s SNL appearance?

Get ready for a night of comedic epic proportions…

Mark your calendars on November 12, 2016, as comedy legend Dave Chappelle will make his hosting debut on ‘Saturday Night Live’.

What’s even better about this show is that legendary hip-hop group, A Tribe Called Quest will be musical guests!

 

Via Vanity Fair:

 

The rap group will hit the stage just one day after the release of final album We Got It from Here, Thank You for Your Service. The album comes just a few months after the passing of member Phife Dawg, but will feature new verses he recorded earlier this year. This will be Tribe’s first performance on S.N.L.

Chappelle’s hosting gig will arrive just days after the presidential election, so you know he’s going to get some good political barbs in no matter the outcome. Though he’s never hosted the show, he was one of many celebrity attendees at S.N.L.’s 40th-anniversary celebration last year.

 

I have this feeling that SNL will score HUGE in ratings on this night!

If Damon Wayans  have anything to do with the return of ‘In Living Color’, it would definitely happen with fresh faces, according to his interview with ‘Business Insider’.

As Wayans prepare for his return to the Fox Network with the  ‘Lethal Weapon’ television series on September 21, he shares with Business Insider that he thinks it’s “the time is right” for the sketch show that helped make him famous, ‘In Living Color‘, to return to TV.

According to Wayans, with the help of the internet exposing a different range of comedy stars and the talent he sees at comedy clubs, he could round up some serious funny folks to help put the show back on the small screen.

 “If you just think about all the talent that came through ‘In Living Color’ that are famous today: Jennifer Lopez, Jamie Foxx, Jim Carrey, a global, iconic actor/comedian. But there’s still more talent to be found.” “There’s still more talent to be found,” he said. “I see them when I’m in the comedy clubs. If we had ‘In Living Color’ on, these people should go through there, because it was a great training ground. I watch YouTube and I’m looking for [talent] and it’s not consistent,” Wayans told us. “All these years, they’re uploading 10 billion videos a week on YouTube and I can’t find anything consistently funny. There’s something wrong. There’s no filter. Who’s locating the talent? Nurturing the talent? It should be more consistent… The time is right.”

Get on it, Damon!

NBC has picked up a comedy pilot starring Marlon Wayans. The show, simply called ‘Marlon’, is loosely inspired by Marlon Wayans’ life. The multi-camera comedy revolves around an inappropriate, but loving father, played by Wayans, who is committed to successfully co-parenting with his polar opposite ex-wife, who will be played by Essence Atkins (‘Are We There Yet?’) In addition to starring in the show, Marlon will serve as a producer.

Marlon’s brother, Damon Wayans, is set to play Roger Murtaugh in ‘the Lethal Weapon‘ television series. Murtaugh is the character made famous by Danny Glover in the box office hit. Fox has officially ordered the pilot, after months of a bidding war with other networks.

No word yet on when both pilots will drop, but of course, LN will keep you posted!

Saturday Night Live wouldn’t be where they are if they didn’t poke fun at controversy. In light of the #Oscarsowhite phenomena which stems from the Academy Awards lack of diversity among nominees, SNL did what they do best during last night’s show. Watch the hilarious clip below of the “Screen Guild Awards” as white actors are all chosen as winners for their minuscule roles while the black actors watch in disappointment.

 

When In Living Color debuted, I was so in awe of this group of funny people; mostly a black cast, full of funny-as-hell comedians who made us cry tears of non-stop laughter for an hour. The seasoned Wayans family, as well as the newcomers like this unknown white guy, namely Jim Carrey, became the hottest comedy sketch sensation and gave Saturday Night Live serious competition!

In Living Color wasn’t just known for making us laugh. They boldly pushed the envelope with characters mimicking stereotypes and making light of celebrity scandals. In such comically clever way, they’ve touched on stuff ranging from homosexuality to couples who made tabloid headlines weekly like Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston. Other celebrities targets included Oprah Winfrey, MC Hammer, Rick James, Tracey Chapman, Grace Jones, and Milli Vanilli.

There were also the original characters we fell in love with!

Firemarshall Bill, Wanda, Vera De Milo, The Head Detective, Men On Film, Homey The Clown, Anton (homeless guy with unique world view), Mr.and Mrs. Brooks (old couple that always tried to kill each other), Bunita Butrell ( She’s alright with you, as long as you don’t talk bad about Ms. Jenkins), Background guy (Jim Carrey as the random guy who makes funny faces behind news reporters), Calhun Tubbs (the blues man), Ace and Main Man, Cephus and Reesie, Frenchie..I could go on.

Every single one of these characters is unique and memorable, making In Living Color stand out as one of the best comedy sketches in television history.

It’ unfortunate that we have to rely on In Living Color‘s DVD set to re-live episodes, instead of watching a new show every week. My opinion…they would have blown Saturday Night Live out the water in due time!

Press play to watch the majority fan fave…Men On Film!

What’s your favorite ILC character?

 

 

If you are on Facebook, Instagram, or even Twitter…chances are you’ve seen the photo of two nice-looking gentlemen that became so popular, it went viral. The photo’s caption blew admirers away!  Looking at the photo, you can’t tell who’s the dad and who’s the son!

Billy Stanfield (right in picture), runs a mentoring program in Baltimore. He talked about how he has turned his life around from spending time in jail for dealing drugs to getting married and becoming a pastor and a better father to his son, Correll. (pictured here to the left). However, there was one bit of information that Correll should have kept to himself….lol.

When Steve told Correll to describe his “perfect woman”, Correll tried it when he said someone similar to Steve’s daughter. Steve wasn’t havin’ it!…LOL.

Watch the funny clip below.

 

 

 

You ain’t dating my daughter!
