Joe Rogan says the Joe Rogan Experience Podcast gained listeners during controversy, meanwhile Will Smith hasn’t apologized to Chris Rock

Pete Davidson is in a horror-comedy and the trailer is out.

The trailer is also out for Joel Kim Booster and Bowen Yang’s Fire Island.

Billy Cystal’s Mr. Saturday Night musical opens.

Kill the Orange Faced Bear, starring Sarah Silverman and Daymon Wayans Jr. gets an unexpected axe one week before filming.

Sounds like Aunty Donna won’t get a second season on Netflix, but they are touring Australia and coming up with new sketches.

Jennie Mack with your daily comedy, New Zealand Musk is buying Twitter. Jimmy Fallon said Twitters and nothing to buy. You know, it’s like buying YouTube and saying, forget the video is I’m just here for the mean comments. That’s right. The richest man in the world bought Twitter right now. Bernie Sanders is so Manny just turned into the Hulk.

James cordon. Imagine having so much money that you think it’s a good idea to buy hell.

He sees something impossible and makes it happen. Building the most sought after electric car blasting off an outer space. And now somehow making Twitter even worse

fell in the caps. Lock key on Trump’s phone was like I’m back baby. But listen to this.

Trump told Fox news he will not return to Twitter and will instead join his own platform. Truth. Social wait. So not even Trump is on truth social yet. And Jimmy Fallon, . He’s not on his own app. If you keeping track Twitter and truth social, or like the four seasons and four seasons, total landscaping, those are all good jokes.

Now I was horrified by the jokes attributed to Trevor Noah, who I usually find pretty funny. These aren’t good. I’m sure Trevor told them 10,000 times better than I’m going to tell them, but these just aren’t sharpen all like they’re not good. Ready? Same topic.

That’s right. People, Twitter said it would never sell to Elon Musk in any produce the cash. And they’re like, all right, we’ll sell. Yeah. I guess they found that edit button after all. I honestly don’t know why you lone would want to own Twitter. Right. Just doesn’t feel like a fun place to supervise. It’s like buying Jurassic park after the power went down in the cages.

Yeah, but like why inter-ethnic park reference today, maybe a month or now in the movies? I don’t know. It’s weird. And the final one. So you see by buying Twitter, Elon Musk gets to own one of the most culturally influential publishing platforms in the world. I mean, remember this, think about it. Twitter’s Halle Arab spring took off right?

Black lives matter, blew up on Twitter. The me too movement started on Twitter. Trump used Twitter to turn himself from a reality show joke into the 45th president, the United States and a joke. So owning Twitter, it gives you more power than the drugstore employee with the key to the deodorant shelf. What, what does that punch set up was too long.

And a punchline about drugstore DOD. I don’t get it. Weird. Weird, weird, weird, weird

will. Smith is in India. He’s on a spiritual tour to meditate. Page six reports. He has still not personally apologized or reached out to Chris rock after the slap.

Page six says many Hollywood insiders are rolling their eyes as will Smith and sisters trip as part of his vow to do the work, to ensure that I will never allow violence to overtake reason. When insider said Will’s spiritual journey to India for yoga and meditation seems cynical and ridiculous given that he hasn’t apologized personally to the one person he assaulted in front of millions, no amount of Namaste days will make up for that.

Terry crews, I spoke to people about the. He said both will Smith and Chris rocker. Dear, dear friends of mine. I love them both as brothers, when I look back what Chris rock did just by deciding to hold everything together, it’s actually, I think in a lot of ways saved Hollywood, because if there had been a brawl on that stage, I don’t know if Hollywood would have ever gotten any respect again, you know, it’s hard to even imagine what would have happened.

I’m imagining it right now. And I would be the Michael Jackson GIF eating popcorn. That’s what I would be.

Cruz said the definition of toughness, where I grew up in the way I was, it was always the ability to strike the ability to punch the ability to set things straight to even the score. But the true definition of toughness was what Chris rock did and taking a punch and then holding everything together and then showing tremendous endurance and resilience in the middle of obstacles.

I think it was a miracle. What Chris did. I really do. I couldn’t believe his poison that moment. I thought, holy cow, we have him a lot. I think every performer owes him so much because it really to saved Hollywood in that moment. I’m very thankful to Chris, but I also understand will not want to demonize a will at all. Because I was there.

It seems like Joe Rogan’s podcast is doing pretty well. And he took a shot at CNN plus on Fridays, Joe Rogan, the guest was British political commentator, Douglas Murray.

They started talking about CNN plus a personality. Brian Stettler.

Marie said, one of my rules is I try, never to be mean about their appearances. But, and then he parent dissolved into laughter. As Marie described, finding out that Stetler is much younger than he assumed. How old is Brian? Stettler I’m going to guess 43. Let me look. Brian Stetler is 36. All right. That’s not ridiculous.

Rogan said his pattern of communication is so strange. It’s like dealers and other people, they talk very differently from you than he did an impression of.

They talked about CNN. Plus they made a really hacky joke. CNN minus Rogan. You are better than that.

Robin said they spent $300 million and got 10,000 subscribers. Imagine the hubris of thinking that’s something people don’t want for free. You got to charge money for it. Jake Tapper seems like a great guy, but I feel like I don’t have to pay for his book. 10,000 is stunningly low. As I mentioned yesterday, this show regularly gets over a thousand downloads a day.

An idiot sitting in his basement is one 10th as popular CNN. Plus I was a possible.

Robin doing a little bit better than me. He talked about the recent controversies and he said, it’s interesting. My subscriptions went up massively. That was crazy. During the height of it all, I gained 2 million subscribers.

The number I’ve seen thrown about lately is that about 11 million people listen to Joe Rubin slightly more than me, but I’m coming for you, Joe

billy Crystal’s musical opens today. He spoke to CBS Sunday morning. He is playing buddy young. Jr. That’s that character he started doing way back. I know he did it on Saturday night live. I don’t know if he did it before that personally never cared at all for the character of buddy young Jr.

The character also appeared in the 1992 movie, Mr. Saturday night, originally, Billy crystal was in his forties playing a 73 year old. Now he’s a 74 year old playing a 73 year old. Billy told CBS it’s every comedian’s worst nightmare to wake up one day and not be funny, not be relevant and not be needed or thought about how do you stay funny?

How do you stay with it? How do you stay on the surface? The original film was not a financial success. Billy describes that as a punch in the face and he considers it to be his best work.

This time. It’s a musical. I don’t want to see that. No, I really don’t. Billy says it’s the ultimate challenge, but right now I feel really strong and ready to do it. There’s an electric feeling, you know, this all got me thinking about Billy crystal when he was on SNL. You look marvelous, fun sketch. It’s really one joke over and over, but then there was like buddy young and then he would do, like, I don’t know what it was.

1950s bowling alley knucklehead. Got like, it’s just a lot of it. Wasn’t gut when Harry met Sally is good. I guess he’s getting some movies. I don’t know. And who had a good day, Kevin Hart, he has secured a $100 million minority investment for his newly formed company. It’s called heartbeat spelled the way you would think Kevin Hart would spell heartbeat.

He has merged HartBeat productions and laugh out loud, laugh out loud, founded in 2017.

Has produced podcasts and streaming shows like Olympic highlights with Kevin Hart and Snoop Dogg that didn’t do too well. Did it? and a Roku series heart. I think that was originally a, what was it called? and that didn’t do too well either Kevin Hart and not for nothing. I know you’re successful, but those two things didn’t do too well.

HartBeat productions produces Dave, the great series on F. And movies have included night school, starring Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish.

Let me do some cross plugs. For some things I’m involved with. One is a podcast called the best song ever this week. Each week, music journalist, Scott Frampton picks one song and tells you why it’s the best song ever this week. This week song is the girl from Ipanema, a song that famously evokes sunny beaches and warm.

But it’s darker and cooler than it’s easy listening. Dilutions have, let us believe that show’s fun. And quick, about 10 minutes. It’s called the best song ever this week. I’m also the writer on palace intrigue. And I spent some time writing yesterday. I mean like six hours writing. There’s a new book by Tina brown.

There’s two other books.

Everybody’s worried about Harry. There’s just so much going on. So if you like Royal family gossip, if you watch the TV series, the crown, I was described this as seasoned 17 of the crown in real time, that podcast is called palace intrigue. Pete Davidson, the trailer for his upcoming movie bodies, bodies bodies is out in the trailer.

We see Pete Davidson playing David. David says that would be so effing obvious if I were the kid.

He explains his value to the rest of the group. And during this crisis in the horror comedy film, Pete Davidson, as David says, well, I just look like I am cleaning it up. Bang. You know what I mean? I look like I bang and that’s the vibe I like to put out their bodies, bodies, bodies out August 5th guests.

We’ll be talking about peat all summer while we’re over on gossip.

The daily mail. I love this phrasing. Two time, Emmy winner, John Malania and his baby mama, Olivia. So he’s a two-time Emmy winner and she’s just a baby mama. Like she’s not had any career at all. Like what, what, why are we bringing up the Emmys at all? Millennian Munn held hands as they left the four seasons hotel and headed to the Kennedy center on Sunday, the 39 year old comedian looked yapper on a black suit.

While the 41 year old actress were a blue flounce gown.

The trailer for fire island is out. This’ll be on Hulu, June 3rd. Love the cast here. Joel, Kim booster, who I saw at Montreal new faces. Oh, is it’s quite a while ago. Now, 70 years and Bowen yang who crushes in everything. That’s a good cast. Fire island described as an unapologetic modern day. Romcom inspired by Jane Austen’s pride and prejudice.

Obviously the story centers around two best friends who set out to have a legendary week long summer vacation. With the help of cheap Rosie and a contrary of electric friends,

fire island, Hulu, June 3rd, bad news. If you’re looking forward to kill the orange faced bear, not that you would kill a bear. That’s the name of a show that was going to be on CBS during demon wanes. TBS and TNT announced yesterday. Hey, we’re not going to make stuff anymore. I’m paraphrasing there. You could nitpick the details, but the general gist is we’re not making shows.

HBO max bro. Kill the orange face. Bear was scheduled to begin production on a 10 episode order next week in Vancouver. There is a film to pilot. The pilot is being shipped around Damon Wayans Jr. Starts as Hank, a charming, funny and grieving man, who is hell bent on tracking down. Brenda, the bear.

Why? Brenda, the bear attacked an eight Hanks girlfriend. Brenda is played by Sarah Silverman and described as a sarcastic bad-ass grizzly bear.

Nicole Byer is in this thing as well as Pauline a bear with perfect for perfect nails who uses her feminine Wiles to seduce Brenda’s husband. Wait, the bear has a husband, Sam Richardson plays Steve B terminally idiotic bear with a dangerous habit of breaking into cars to steal snacks and beer. So he’s Yogi bear.

You know what my favorite thing is right now. It’s winning time on HBO max. That’s the Laker series, Jerry West, the legendary Laker. Apparently doesn’t like the character Jerry West.

West has been complaining about the portrayal. HBO put out a statement saying HBO has a long history of producing compelling content and drawn from actual facts and events that are fictionalized in part for dramatic purposes. Winning time is not a documentary.

And it’s not been presented as such whoever the series and its depictions are based on extensive factual research and reliable sourcing. And HBO stands resolutely behind our talented creators and Casper have brought a dramatization of this epic chapter in basketball history to the screen, John C.

Riley crushes in that show. If you’re not watching winning time, watch winning time.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar rarely mentioned on this podcast, he came to Jerry West defense.

Kareem Abdul Jabbar said, it’s a shame. The way they treat Jerry West, who was openly discussed to struggle with mental health, especially depression, instead of exploring his issues with compassion as a way to better understand the man, they turn him into a wile E coyote cartoon to be laughed at. He never broke golf clubs.

He didn’t throw his trophy through the window. Sure. Those actions make dramatic moments, but the Rica facile exploitation of the man, rather than an exploitation of character. The Sydney morning Herald wrote about auntie Donna. Remember that that was a show on Netflix during the pandemic Australian sketch comedy guys.

I liked them a lot. They have a weekly podcast called auntie Donna that I listened to. I’m a fan

they’re getting back on soar in Australia. Anyway, they said our core DNA is making live hours. After three years of not doing it. It means we have a lot of pent up energy.

Cast members. Zachary ruined said we’re all out of sketches. There was something like 40 sketches of the Netflix show. So we’ve filmed everything. There’s maybe two or three sketches that we haven’t filmed. We have to do a live show. We have to make 20 new sketches. Cause we’ve got to find each other again.

We got to find what it is that we do.

The context clues here, make me think we’re not getting another season of auntie Donna on Netflix the article. It doesn’t specifically say that, but cast member Broden, Kelly says sometimes it’s taken me 15 minutes to realize that we’ve just gotten a no in the U S I know to them is saying that’s a really fun, interesting thing.

I’ll absolutely. That’s a, no, you’ve just got to recalibrate because TV executives in Australia, they’re usually just.

And there’s only three people you could talk to in this country anyway. And none of them like us.

Different cast member. Mark Banano says you can’t just be a group that makes a TV show and you make that every year and that’s it. You have to do more. We have a small population and a smaller industry, so it’s harder to be niche. Great stuff comes out of this country. Australia just has to find more of an audience than only here.
