Andy Sandberg Offers Another HBO ‘Mockumentary’

Andy Sandberg Offers Another HBO ‘Mockumentary’

Evidently, 7 DAYS OF HELL was a success for HBO and Andy Samberg. We failed to mention that another mockumentary special is in the works from Andy Samberg and company. They first served up some fun-time satire with their take on Wimbledon level tennis and now focus on doping in the world of professional cycling. That’s right, they are poking fun at Lance Armstrong. The comedy bit is entitled TOUR DE PHARMACY and will race through the sport of cycling (like it did with tennis) and also play absurd with a doping scandal surrounding one of the athletes. Samberg will serve as producer and star of the work which will include appearances by...

HBO was always a host for the comedic talents of so many performers over the years. It is an innumerable amount.

Below is an official press release highlighting the laughs to come including the return of Brit Tracey Ullman to HBO.        HBO CONFIRMS LINEUP OF COMEDY PROGRAMMING FOR UPCOMING MONTHS,  INCLUDING SOLO STAND-UP SPECIALS...

HBO Comedy Special – QUINCY JONES: BURNING THE LIGHT Review

HBO Comedy Special – QUINCY JONES: BURNING THE LIGHT Review

Dealing with comedy is always subjective but here is this writer’s thoughts on the Quincy Jones comedy special that debuted Thursday, June 02 at 10:00pm and I hope you don’t want to punch me right in the face when I’m done. Hold up, let me say that it was funny and an entertaining treat on an otherwise boring Thursday night, but it was flawed. Upon watching the comic’s hour I checked many of a review only to discover no one had anything negative to say. What? Was I missing something? After further pondering I deduced that I didn’t think so. All I’m saying is that as comics go he needed a little polishing is all. Listen, I...

Beyonce Teases Us & HBO with LEMONADE

Beyonce Teases Us & HBO with LEMONADE

She has done it again. Beyonce is grabbing attention with another surprise event on HBO. It is titled LEMONADE and it hits the screen on Saturday, April 23 at 9:00pm. But what is it? It is clearly whatever she damn well wants it to be. The 21-second tease that dropped first a few days ago only offered the news of her arrival and had her sporting a tight hair weave and fur. Her face isn’t shown in the shot, but everyone knows who it is. Come on, isn’t she the only one who can interrupt the schedule and claim whatever time slot she wants on the network?  At any rate, all we get out of her is “What am I going to do, love? What am I going...

HBO Special: LADY DAY AT THE EMERSON BAR & GRILL

HBO Special: LADY DAY AT THE EMERSON BAR & GRILL

This is an interesting and somewhat edgy performance. But to get anyone to watch it relies on two facts. One you got to enjoy theatrical performance because LADY DAY AT THE EMERSON BAR & GRILL is a film adaptation of an actual play. It so happens that Broadway stunner Audra McDonald happened to have already starred in the stage work to acclaim so it only made sense to capture it on film. If you are already familiar with the staged version then you’d be eager for this cinematic adaptation. The other fact is a big one: you got to know or want to know about the title subject which is Billie “Lady Day” Holliday. Some of you just might...
