Well, so far, there are no “stunt celebrities” on the dais for Comedy Central's latest roast that are just there for the simple spectacle without any real comedy chops. Bill Hader, Jonah Hill, Nick Kroll, Natasha Leggero, Jeff Ross, and Sarah Silverman are pretty solid.

That’s great to see, for now, but we are surprised that Jay Baruchel and Danny McBride aren’t in this announcement as This Is The End must have been just a warm up for this.

[Saw a couple of the roasters at the Barbary tent testing out material, and just to let you know… a lot of jokes about Jewish people. I’m actually looking forward to this (figuratively).]

Tenacious D just announced the lineup for their inaugural musical comedy festival, Festival Supreme, set to take place on October 19th in Santa Monica. Tenacious D will top the bill, naturally, and they will be joined by such comedic heavy hitters as Zach Galifianakis, Adam Sandler, Sarah Silverman, Fred Armisen, Eric Idle, Hannibal Buress, Will Forte, Demetri Martin, Tim and Eric and Triumph the Insult Comic Dog. Jack Black and Kyle Gass [Native] called us to give us all the details.

Feature: If Comedians Were Sex Toys

Sex and comedy are symbiotic bedfellows. Many comedians are martyrs for coitus’ often ridiculous trappings, spinning observational gold the night after the morning after.

When you bring in sex toys, things are liable to get even more funny, because really, who doesn’t enjoy a good 14 inch dildo joke? Even grandma gets down, right? At least on the jokes (hopefully). 

So as an homage to comedy and well, sex toys, I thought it would be fun to actually compare famous comedians to sex toys. Can you guess who’s going to be the 14incher?
