Sasha Cohen Teaches a Gun Enthusiast How To Defend Himself by Using The Attackers Groin


Sacha Baron Cohen offers his unique perspective of America. Exploring the diverse individuals, from the infamous to the unknown, across the political and cultural spectrum who populate our nation. He appears on Showtime and You can watch a week old episodes on YouTube. The ratings were not very high (low) when he started the season but it would seem they've stared to pull up.They have recovered some after he had a politician shamed from running and a missguided racist Sherrif Trump pardon to be shamed after he fell for one of Sasha tricks. The part  I like about these people that fall for it are usually big mouthers exposing their causes but on one to one out of their field and area of comfort they are idiots. 
Who is America? It's composed of the smart and the smarts deprived. What I never understood is why these low brain density people have 'normal" people follow them. Sasha is not a new phenomenum but hte hs been around for a while. Even interviewing Trump back in 2003.🦊Adam

Cathy Griffin Confronts Trump on Tweeter and Mr. Quiet VP Pence on God and Children





Comedian Kathy Griffin went after President Donald Trump, his administration and his family on Monday in a series of tweets.
She first commented on a post from the president blaming Democrats for an uproar against the Trump administration policy that separates children from their parents at the border.
"Go [F***] Yourself You [F***ing] Liar," Griffin tweeted
Later, over a post from the president saying "CHANGE THE LAWS," Griffing commented, "CHANGE PRESIDENTS."
But she didn't stop there, later targeting Vice President Mike Pence. 
"Hey @VP - you say you're a man of god...what does god say about what's happening right now on the border?" she tweeted. "Don't think we don't notice you just because you're quiet and stay off camera...you're complicit."
Griffin then slammed the politically active wing of the Trump family clan and fired back at people upset with the harsh language in her tweets. "This President, his family (except for Tiffany and Barron) and his administration, do not deserve an ounce of grace, decorum, respect, or kindness," she posted. "They are horrible people who are operating a criminal enterprise. So stop with the lectures about 'unhelpful language' - [F***] TRUMP."
 Griffin, of course, has been a longtime opponent of Trump. She famously sparked a controversy when she posed with a faux, bloody decapitated head made to look like the former reality TV star. She has ramped up her criticism of Trump in recent days. 
On Sunday, she attacked First lady Melania Trump for a statement claiming she "hates to see children separated from their families." Griffin even got in a dig at the president by spelling the first lady's name "Melanie" as Trump once did in a tweet.
"[F***] you, Melanie," Griffin tweeted. "You know damn well your husband can end this immediately...you feckless complicit piece of [s***]."
There has been growing anger at Trump over his administration's policy that has resulted in the separation of children from their parents when they're detained at the border. Photos and stories of the conditions in which some of the thousands of children have been housed—crammed into makeshift chain-link cages—has caused particular outrage. Trump has falsely claimed that Democrats are to blame for the separation policy that his administration announced.
For instance, Monday he tweeted: "It is the Democrats fault for being weak and ineffective with Boarder [sic] Security and Crime. Tell them to start thinking about the people devastated by Crime coming from illegal immigration. Change the laws!"

Kathy Griffin Honored For Her Support and Activism of LGBT Causes


Comedian Kathy Griffin shows off her Kate Spade handbag and dress before receiving a Rainbow Key Award from the City of West Hollywood, Tuesday, June 5, 2018, in West Hollywood, Calif. Fashion designer Spade was found dead in her New York City apartment Tuesday in an apparent suicide, police said.

Kathy Griffin paid tribute Tuesday night to Kate Spade by dressing head-to-toe in the late designer's apparel to accept an honor for her activism and fundraising for LGBTQ causes.
Griffin did not personally know the designer but gave a brief tribute to Spade while accepting the Rainbow Key award from the city of West Hollywood, California. Spade was found dead in New York earlier Tuesday in what authorities said was an apparent suicide.
West Hollywood leaders recognized Griffin for raising more than $5 million for HIV/AIDS services and other LGBTQ activism. The award is part of an annual ceremony commending individuals who have made significant contributions to the LGBTQ community. Griffin is in the midst of a comeback following the controversy and personal and professional setbacks after she posed for a photo holding a fake dismembered Donald Trump head in May 2017. She initially apologized for the photo, but later rescinded it. By then, the damage was done, with Griffin losing several jobs and receiving death threats. 
West Hollywood leaders have expressed clear opposition to U.S. President Donald Trump's policies affecting the LGBTQ community, and Griffin delivered a fiery yet comedic speech in the city council chambers. Griffin called for action against Trump administration's policies, saying, "It's shirts and skins" and called for members of the community to pick a team.
She also defended Samantha Bee's comments about Ivanka Trump last week and said is urging her social media followers to support advertisers on Bee's program. She accused Trump of complaining to her father about Bee calling her a vulgarity and said she did not want the "Full Frontal" host to suffer.

                                                                      ☭        πŸ™‰πŸ™Š             ☭
"I've been the person that daddy made pay and it's not going to happen anymore on my watch," Griffin said.
Griffin also envisioned a day when a gay president might occupy the White House, and she might be back in favor with the leader of the free world.
"So, when we have our first gay president, which I hope to see, I just want you to know that for all I've put up within the last 25 years, I better be invited to a state dinner and I want to stay in the Lincoln bedroom," she said. "I've put in my time."

Robin Williams Funny But Not Nice


````````````````````````````````````````````````````````
``````Funny but Not Nice to His Family`````````
Robin Williams in a black shirt: Actor Robin Williams poses for a portrait on Nov. 5, 2011 in Beverly Hills, Calif.© Dan Steinberg/Invision/AP Actor Robin Williams poses for a portrait on Nov. 5, 2011, in Beverly Hills, Calif.A new biography of Robin Williams chronicles the comedian's topsy-turvy public and private lives, which involved infidelities, groping and flashing of his Mork & Mindy co-star Pam Dawber, rehab from drug and alcohol abuse, and a rare brain disorder diagnosed only after his 2014 suicide, by hanging, at age 63. 
In Robin (Henry Holt, out May 15), author Dave Itzkoff writes that Williams’ first wife, Valerie Velardi, tolerated the comic’s unfunny liaisons for a time: “Valerie could never quite bring herself to condemn Robin for his infidelities; she seemed to accept them as an occupational hazard of stardom.”
That changed, however, when his two-year affair with a cocktail waitress ended, and the other woman, Michelle Tish Carter, sued him for $6.2 million, alleging (inaccurately, it turned out) that he had given her herpes. The suit became public in 1988 and Velardi divorced Williams that year; they had been married for a decade and their son Zak was 5. The suit would not be settled until 1992 for an undisclosed amount of money.
Other revelations in the book:
In 1989, Williams would marry Marsha Garces, who had risen from being the family nanny to his professional assistant. But by 2006 the comedian’s relapse into drinking and doing drugs, which he tried unsuccessfully to hide from his wife, led to the unraveling of his second marriage. That summer he began a stint at the Hazelden Foundation center, a rehab facility in Oregon.
Previously, Williams had been sober for more than two decades, in large part because of the cautionary example of Saturday Night Live star John Belushi, who died of a drug overdose in 1982 at the age of 33. Williams had been with Belushi the night before he died, although he denied reports that he had been doing cocaine with him. On this occasion, Williams rehabbed himself cold turkey.
The new 400-plus-page biography also documents an insecure star who for all his successes (an Oscar, plus Emmys and Grammys) could be worried by the rise of rival comic Jim Carrey, as well as over his personal finances — this despite pulling down as much as $15 million a film.

Williams’ behavior, hardly conventional to begin with, became increasingly strange as he progressed into his early 60s, worrying friends and family. He was misdiagnosed with Parkinson’s disease and in June 2014 entered a rehab facility even though he was not drinking or doing drugs. It was a move inspired by desperation: nothing else seemed to be helping.
(Williams' behavior was later attributed to “diffuse Lewy body disease”; the diagnosis came from analysis of the actor’s brain tissue after his death.)
Itzkoff writes that Susan Schneider, his third wife whom he married in 2011, became seriously concerned about his health, both physical and mental, in the fall of 2013. He was having stomach problems, difficulty with his vision, trouble urinating and sleeping, among other ailments. He was taking medication for depression. Soon paranoia and delusions joined the list of torments.
The author writes that on the night before he hanged himself Williams “began to fixate on some of the designer wrists watches that he owned and grew fearful that they were in danger of being stolen.” He took several of them and stuffed them in a sock and drove them to a friend’s house nearby for safekeeping.
Williams went to bed that night around 10:30 p.m., and his wife, who slept in a separate bedroom, let him sleep in the next morning, grateful that he seemed to be getting a solid rest for a change. When he didn’t answer her late that morning of Aug. 11, she forced the lock on his bedroom door.  She found him dead, his belt around his neck.
After her husband's death and diagnosis, Schneider told Good Morning America, "It was like this endless parade of symptoms, and not all of them would raise their head at once. It was like playing whack-a-mole. Which symptom is it this month? I thought, is my husband a hypochondriac? We're chasing it and there are no answers, and by now we've tried everything."

She Played With the National Anthem and Grabbed Trump's Area 51 but Never Knelt- Liked by GOP



(AP pic)




The Padres could have done their homework, though. Barr’s awful anthem wasn’t her first revolting offense at a baseball game. During the 1989 World Series, she and her husband at the time, Tom Arnold, mooned the crowd at the Oakland Coliseum.
In the end, the aftermath of Barr’s bad behavior hurt the ratings of her hit TV show. The San Diego Padres took the high road and played a pre-recorded version of The Star-Spangled Banner as performed by the U.S. Marine Corps Band for the remainder of the season





No, She is not kneeling while she sings the national anthem but she is grabbing what Trump Likes to grab....Anything from Pence? Is he standing up yet? dropping pants? Trump? He is the grabber so he might not have liked this and doesn't like people more popular than he but since she voted for him he does call her once in a while. I would imagine they exchange jokes about genitalia or even crooked Hillary.

Roseanne Bar is Back on TV and Her Demon's Are Saying ..."She and We'r Back".....and more



"She-devil was what the title meant" Hope you got it...
 Roseanne Barr on her movie hit 'She-devil"



Roseanne Barr is quoted as saying the following (The Los Anges Times) about Trump:

I’ve known him for many years and he’s done a lot of nice things for me over the years. And it was just a friendly conversation about working and television and ratings,” Barr, 65, continued.
“He really understands ratings and how they measure things,” Barr said of the former “Celebrity Apprentice” star-turned-president. “And that’s kind of been an interest of mine too.”
She likes Trump and according to her voted for him, mainly because she liked the way he fired people on the "Apprentice." Also because He talked to her(?)It seems to me by listening to her and I am not going to give an observation about the similarities between Barr and Trump but my question is which one of her personalities is the one who likes Trump? I mean She has been Pro-socialist and GOP Conservative, liking Hillary and calling her a crook. Saying she got gays in her show(?) and she is said nasty things about gays, she is proTrump now but He's been on her demon's hairline too.

Which means she is all over the place like she is everywhere and that's where the different inside personalities come from. I just hope she is not thinking of running for President because until this new generation coming up can turn 18 and get the vote I could see the Republicans getting together with the Bernie people and give us" Rox, she President!"

Now, maybe it could be all of them that like Trump now but with a person who has admitted to having dozens upon dozens of those popping noisy critters it will definitely make the news if all of them were for Trump. Since what Trump does except nuclear war does not directly affects her up at her Macadamia Nuthouse, at this point she still loves the guy. They (Trump, Barr) both like to yell more than talk and they never listen unless you are saying nice things about them but it could be that.

I will go on a limb here and say it must be the "she-devil" personality. You know this is the one where she is not treated right as a housekeeper and at the end, it seems she sets the house on fire.  As I remember it it doesn't show her lighting the match but it shows the house crisply burning on the background while she seats relieved and exhausted  (the same way Trump felt after driving the Casinos to the ground and getting insurance pay for them, declaring bankruptcy and not being on the hook for the money he owed) at the same time  for "She-devil" is trying to figure out how she switches from she-devil to may be the one that at one point hated all men. This is what she said to the Los Angeles Times back in 2016 from her Macadamia Nut House in Hawaii (This all true, is on the tape):
From her macadamia nut farm in Hawaii — sat down in her studio in El Segundo, a glass of bourbon in her hand, and reflected on her foray into presidential politics, this year’s race between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, marijuana legalization and the impending end of the world.
The first thing we see you say in this movie is, "This is not a publicity stunt." Looking back on your run, do you feel like people had a hard time taking you seriously as a candidate for the presidency?
They were idiots. I say in the movie, "It's a bunch of clowns and one comedian and they prefer the clowns." You'd say what people hold in their hearts to be true and they'd go, "Nah."
The citizens of this country don't really get that they could work this stuff to their advantage if they wanted, or they're not ready. I just want people to know what's being done to them. Because I hate stupidity. I want people to see this movie because they should know how it works.
Notice that when she mentions "evil' she lowers her voice, like they are listening to her. Good luck to you in listening to this old taping originally from Los Angeles Times.
Warning on language, You could be offended!







 They all ripped off my ...! Bernie [Sanders] ripped my whole ... off, 
like men do in Hollywood from the day I set foot in here.

Well, to be fair to Bernie, he has been talking about these issues for a long time.
Nobody gave a ...! I knew it was there. I tried to help set it up. Now I see all three of them — Hillary, Bernie and Trump — they're all borrowing heavily from my 2012 campaign.
Like what specific things?
Well, socialism. Like, "Hey, bankers ought to pay back the money they stole — or at least not get a bonus for doing so." As soon as you start getting paid, then Satan's got you, and you're going to burn in that huge hellfire lake for all eternity with Satan right there with that pitchfork in your eyeball.



On the one hand, you talk optimistically about the people taking back the system and bringing about revolutionary change. But you also have predicted a few times that the world is about to end.
Yeah, well, it's always two years ahead of now. I know that.
So the world will end in 2018?
Yeah. I do believe we're on the edge of extinction and there's very little if any hope that we'll live through this .... It just seems so finite. They say it's going to be a meteor that takes us out. Well, I say let's party like it's 1999.

Bob Smith, First Openly Gay TV and Cable Comedian Dead at 59








The comedian is best known for being the first openly gay male comedian to star in his own 30-minute special on HBO.
Bob Smith, the pioneering gay comedian and award-winning writer, died Saturday in his New York City home from complications from ALS, his rep told The Hollywood Reporter. He was 59.

The comedian is best known for being the first openly gay male comedian to star in his own 30-minute special on HBO, which he did in 1994, and to perform on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. 

After Smith's groundbreaking 1994 appearance on HBO's HBO Comedy Half-Hour, he performed sets on ABC's Politically Incorrect With Bill Maher in 1998, MTV's Wisecrack in 2005 and Regent Entertainment's Hot Gay Comics.

Smith was also a prolific and decorated writer, penning the autobiographical essay collection Openly Bob (1997), which won the LAMBDA Book Award for humor. In 1999 Smith was nominated for another LAMBDA for his second collection of essays, 1999's Way to Go, Smith. In 2016, Smith published his last collection of essays, Treehab: Tales from my Natural Wild Life, which he wrote in the midst of battling ALS and using his one functional hand on an iPad. Smith also wrote the novels Selfish & Perverse (2007), a finalist for the Edmund White Award for Debut Fiction, and Remembrance of Things I Forgot (2011), nominated for a LAMBDA for Best Gay Fiction and shortlisted for the Green Carnation Prize. 

As a television writer, Smith wrote for The MTV Video Music Awards, Dennis Miller, Roseanne and MADtv. His sketches for MADtv include "Zapruder Home Movies," a sketch about the 8mm home movie that is "the only known footage of the Kennedy assassination," and "Antiques Roadshow," which spoofed the long-running PBS show by showing the host digging up dark family secrets through antique items such as a flask.

Smith also performed at Montreal's Just for Laughs Festival several times and headlined gay pride parades in the U.S. and in Canada. 

Born in Buffalo, New York, Smith participated in the Greenwich Village comedy scene in New York City in the early '80s but first became well-known as a member of the "Funny Gay Males" trio of comics, also including Danny McWilliams and Jaffe Cohen, which toured internationally and at the the March on Washington for Lesbian, Gay, and Bi Equal Rights and Liberation in 1993. "Funny Gay Males" became the first openly gay comedians to appear on national television when they appeared on The Joan Rivers Show. 

Smith is survived by his mother Sue, his brothers James and Gregory, his partner Michael Zam — the co-creator of FX's Feud: Bette and Joan — and his children Madeline and Xander.

Gay Writer/Comedian Bob Smith Enters 'Treehab'


Some good news about writer/comedian Bob Smith -- whose brand of humor I fell in love with at the 2007 NLGJA conference -- shared via his writer/comedian pal Eddie Sarfaty:
So proud of my pal Bob Smith. His new book, entitled "Treehab," comes out in a few weeks. For 9 years, he's handled having ALS with dignity and humor, and he's refused to give in to the horrible illness, Bob wrote the entire book, typing with one finger on an iPad!!! He's been in the hospital for months but he's almost ready to be discharged, which means he'll definitely be out in time for the book's launch!



Description:
In this bitingly funny and often surprising memoir, award-winning author and groundbreaking comedian Bob Smith offers a meditation on the vitality of the natural world—and an intimate portrait of his own darkly humorous and profoundly authentic response to a life-changing illness. In "Treehab"—named after a retreat cabin in rural Ontario—Smith muses how he has “always sought the path less traveled.” He rebuffs his diagnosis of ALS as only an unflappable stand-up comic could (“Lou Gehrig’s Disease? But I don’t even like baseball!”) and explores his complex, fulfilling experience of fatherhood, both before and after the onset of the disease. Stories of his writing and performing life—punctuated by hilariously cutting jokes that comedians tell only to each other—are interspersed with tales of Smith’s enduring relationship with nature: boyhood sojourns in the woods of upstate New York and adult explorations of the remote Alaskan wilderness; snakes and turtles, rocks and minerals; open sky and forest canopy; God and friendship—all recurring touchstones that inspire him to fight for his survival and for the future of his two children. Aiming his potent, unflinching wit at global warming, equal rights, sex, dogs, Thoreau, and more, Smith demonstrates here the inimitable insight that has made him a beloved voice of a generation. He reminds us that life is perplexing, beautiful, strange, and entirely worth celebrating.

An "Absurdist" Young Funny Comedian Coming Out Gay Story from Evangelical Circles





  • "ihatejoelkimWe spotted each other across the crowd and then I forgot his Instagram handle. We could've had it all."

I will like to introduce you to a Korean-American Gay Comedian and share with you a page from VICE which does him some justice. This page I'm sharing below was originally written by Elyssa Goodman. I have only seen one more gay site carrying Kim and his story(seen him in a few straight ones) thus I think I would like my readers to know his story if they are not acquainted already. When I first saw Joel's photo and he was wearing a muscle Tshirt and his shirt read:  "Real Men Eat Gay Ass."  

I can see similarities in his upbringing like being raised by Evangelicals which makes the coming out (imagined or real) very painful and confusing. Imagine being indoctrinated to hate the same thing you are and one day when you are being extra honest with yourself you realize that the thing rubbing you the wrong way, (no not a dick) the thing that won't get square away no matter which table of multiplication you use or in what language...is the thing you don't want to be or the thing you are afraid or being and that is being gay. I know in my experience that my coming out was so painful and I hit the road so hard I am surprised I survived it. From going to dangerous places because those were our places and where you could see others like me and let out steam after working all week. One day I was shot at 2-3 am on W. 14 Street in Manhattan. It's a good thing I was with Bob, this wonderful guy I was dating, He took care of me and made sure I got at then St.Vincents Hospital in a cab before I bled to death. "I love you Bob, where ever you are."

Well is kim story time now and I would like you to read it because it shows those going thru this dark tunnel there is a rainbow (yeah! what else?) at the end of this road. It also shows at those that are not gay that if you can understand a little bit how we come out you can then understand some other important, human things about us.
                                                              🦊

"Today I accidentally pulled my dick out a couple steps too soon before I made it to the urinal, and this other guy who works in the office with me full-on saw my penis and it was a horrible moment for both of us," says comedian Joel Kim Booster. His dark black hair peeks out from the top of a backward baseball cap, and he looks at me from behind dark eyes and chiseled cheekbones, wearing ripped jeans with a short-sleeve red flannel shirt. "Sometimes there's a guy who's so excited to pee," he laughs, "he couldn't even wait until he got to the urinal to do it"—and this time it was him.



It's not unlike Booster to step outside of himself to see the comedy in everything; that's how he turned comedy from a regular cathartic and creative outlet into a full-time career. "The way I process is finding that comedic angle," Booster says. He's spent his career to date processing what he calls his own "identity dysphoria," being a Korean adoptee raised by a white evangelical Christian family who was initially challenged when he first came out as gay. His comedy ruminates on some of the thorniest curveballs of intersectional politics: What does it mean to be both gay and, once upon a time, evangelically Christian? To be Asian with a white family? To be Asian in the gay community? To be a gay comic in an industry that's mostly straight? They're questions he mines to relatable, hilarious effect, and will anchor his Comedy Central Stand-Up Presents special, airing tonight at midnight on the channel.

"If you have a strong enough point of view or comedic voice, you're able to just explain to someone that your parents didn't talk to you for a year and a half. Everything is a comedy and it's just a matter of taking a step back and disassociating for a moment," he says, whether it's a big trauma or a tiny slice of total mortification that happens by accident, as it did at the urinal the day I met with him.

Booster started doing comedy in Chicago six and a half years ago. He moved to New York in 2014 and gave himself four years to make it or find something else to do. It took two. By June 2016, he had made his late-night stand-up debut on Conan, and by the end of that year, he sold Birthright, a television show based on his experiences as a gay Korean adoptee raised by white evangelical Christian parents, to FOX. Though the series is no longer in development there, it has been picked up by a to-be-announced network.

His debut album, Model Minority, also comes out November 3. But there's always the question of what's next. "The goal was never fame," Booster says. "I always wanted to just be a working comedian, but now that I'm a working comedian, I don't really know what the next step is because saying 'I want to be famous' is so gross," he laughs. 
Booster was adopted from South Korea and raised in Plainfield, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago. Until his senior year of high school, he was homeschooled, an active participant in Christian youth groups who dreamed of one day becoming a youth pastor. Driven by a desire to do theatre, Booster asked his parents to send him to public school. Within a month, he was cast in the school play and came out to classmates but not his family. In truth, Booster had known he was gay from about age four—he jokes that he knew he was gay before he knew he was Asian—but had been trying to repress those urges, praying for God to change him. Ultimately he began to accept himself but believed for a long time that he'd be going to hell.

When Booster was 17, his parents read his journal and found lists of male sexual conquests. It didn't go well for either side. The tension became so high at home that he moved out—he wasn't kicked out, but also wasn't exactly asked to stay. He ended up sleeping on couches at different friends' houses, ultimately ending up at the home of a girl from choir he didn't know very well at the time. But they became best friends and he lived with her and her family for the rest of high school; her family even help put him through college.

Booster didn't talk to his parents again until he was in college, but the time away was healing. He says their relationship is both "great" and "as good as it could be" now. While he's been able to use stories from this time as fodder for his stand up, it wasn't something he realized he could do until much later. 

"I still remember where I was when I heard Tig Notaro: Live, because it was the first time I had heard material that was so personal," he said—material that "transcended tragedy, not maudlin mock storytelling of 'there needs to be a lesson.'"

Booster moved to Chicago after college to be a writer and actor. As an actor, though, Booster tired of the roles he was offered—in one year, for example, he went in for "Chinese Food Delivery Boy" five times. The comedian Beth Stelling suggested he write his own material, and he hasn't stopped since.

Booster says in college he began by writing predominantly about white heterosexual couples because he found it easier to do than to parse out the threads of his own identity. "Once I figured that out and I started to talk about myself more, stand up has really been a therapy in a way of that untangling process," he says. But the processes with an intelligence, brashness, and distinctive comedic insight that are among the reasons for his continued success. As he said in his Conan set, "It was difficult for me growing up in [Plainfield] because I don't meet a lot of cultural expectations of what an Asian person 'should be' in this country: I'm terrible at math, I don't know karate, my dick is huge."

This brand of personal yet absurdist humor has earned him praise not just from publications like Esquire, Brooklyn Magazine, and Paper, but from fellow comedians. "When you see somebody who's telling jokes that you didn't think you were ever going to get to see onstage, when you see a part of yourself reflected that you didn't know you wanted to see reflected, it's magical," says comedian Guy Branum, host of TruTV's Talk Show the Game Show. "Joel is just… really honest and fiercely positive in a way that thrills me. It makes me so happy because that's a guy who's had a life…. He is the fucking heroine of his own story."

Now, Booster says, he feels like he's achieved a certain stability in understanding his identity. He can change course and move in a different direction, one that's "outrageously dumb," as he puts it, but in a good way—more of that signature self-reflective Joel Kim absurdity, but as it pertains to worlds outside of himself, especially the magical and the mythological, a world where horses are 9/11 truthers and Elmira Gulch is the true feminist hero of The Wizard of Oz.

And as he begins to develop the next segment of his career, a greater fame continues to loom, whether he wants it or not. "Everybody a little bit wants to be famous. I'll settle for working and making a living and having health insurance. I guess I want to be—this is said tongue firmly planted in my cheek—but I want to be a fucking legend," he laughs. "I don't want to just have my name said, I want it to be etched in fucking stone."

Get Mad and Laugh at the Same Time with Jeff Session//Bigots and Stephen Colbert



Get Mad and Laugh at the same time



I wanted to write about Sessions meeting with an anti gay group. I know he is always been rabidly anti gay but now he is the Vice President and he has promised to be fair with the LGBT community. Getting in bed with this group of bigots/homophobes does not indicate fair treatment to the community. When you read or hear the extreme things they have said about the community you will notice this is beyond not liking gays. But then there was right on tape and funny too:
Stephen Colbert☆ speaking about this very same thing!

Trump and The Veterans, Seth to Trump




Senior White House counselor Kellyanne Conway this week complained that the media has been paying too much attention to only one of President Trump’s executive orders — namely, his temporary ban on refugees and travel from seven Muslim-majority countries — and not enough to the many others Trump has signed since taking office.

So Seth Meyers did just that.

On this pre snow storm night with Trump being quiet and no major news                                                                 (Since adamfoxie blog Int. does not manufacture news like some outfits I know, I will give you and interesting video with Seth.

Fans Turned on Steve Harvey After His Visit to Trump on MLK Day



 Harvey is surprised people were surprised and dismayed at him but the
answer is an a 40% max approval rate for Trump




Name something Steve Harvey has done recently that is upsetting fans?

Survey says ... it's more than one thing.
The normally beloved host has run afoul of a few with his recent actions.
Harvey tweeted an apology on Tuesday morning -- his 60th birthday.
"I offer my humblest apology for offending anyone, particularly those in the Asian community, last week," Harvey tweeted. "It was not my intention and the humor was not meant with any malice or disrespect whatsoever."

The statement came as a result of Harvey taking heat for making jokes about Asian men on his daytime talk show.
During a recent segment on dating books, Harvey highlighted “How to Date a White Woman: A Practical Guide for Asian Men" and then joked that it could only be one page long.

"'Excuse me, do you like Asian men?' " Harvey said, referencing what the book might say. "'No.' 'Thank you.' "
"Fresh Off the Boat: A Memoir" author Eddie Huang responded in an essay published in The New York Times.
"(Harvey) speaks openly about issues facing the black community, he is a man of God, and he has a huge platform to speak from," Huang wrote. "Unfortunately, he's also the type of guy who orders Krug champagne for himself and Cook's for every one else. For his own personal profit, he’s willing to perpetuate the emasculation of Asian men regardless of how hypocritical it is."

But he's not the only one Harvey has angered in the last few days.
On Monday “The Daily Show" joined "Saturday Night Live" in mocking Harvey's meeting last week with President-elect Donald Trump.

Harvey explained in an earlier tweet why he went to Trump Tower in New York.
He said both President Barack Obama's and Trump's teams requested he take the meeting and that he was placed in contact with Department of Housing and Urban Development nominee Ben Carson to discuss helping inner cities.

“And you thought Donald Trump wasn't going to do anything for black people," "Daily Show" host Trevor Noah joked Monday night.

Rapper T.I. posted a series of videos on Instagram on Monday calling out Harvey as well as fellow rapper Kanye West, actor-former football star Jim Brown and Martin Luther King III for meeting with Trump.

"Given what's goin on between him & Congressman Lewis.... All y'all looking CRAZY right now," T.I. wrote in the caption, referring to Trump's criticism of US Rep. John Lewis of Georgia on Twitter. "Be Aware, Be Alert, Or Be Bamboozled."

On his radio show Monday, Harvey said he was hurt by all the criticism.
"I didn't expect the backlash to be so fierce," he said. “I also understand if I'm going to keep getting stabbed at, at least while you're stabbing me, you should understand my intent."

Bill Maher on Socialism, Bathroom Sex and Nostradumbass


Lets enjoy sunday with a comedic break from Comedienne Bill Maher.  

Friday night with Bill Maher was again a knock down and blow over with sharp comedic criticism of the gospel of anti Socialism which the government has been spreading for ages. Friday night cannot be avoided when one speaks of the interesting happy events that kicks out the weekend for americans everywhere. If you have a good sense of humor and can forget what party affiliation you have for a few minutes this might crack a smile in your face.We will start with the segment of “New rules” on his program and learn what new rules he proposes for the Nation:

“Older Americans are more religious.And America’s real religion is capitalism. And like any religion, it needs a devil. And that devil has always been socialism. In 1961 Ronald Reagan said if we passed Medicare we’d wind up telling our children what it was once like in America, when men were free. Thanks, Nostradumbass!”
More recently, the U.S. government announced that it would begin selling naming rights to our national parks because the parks are 11 billion dollars in debt.
Maher again:
“So get ready to see the Bison roaming at Yellowstone with the Nike swoosh shaved into their ass. And you’ll no longer be having anonymous gay sex in Yosemite’s rest area #12. You’ll be getting blown in the Quicken Loans Men’s Room. The Grand Tetons will be brought to you by Hooters and the Washington Monument by Cialis. And the Statue of Liberty by Massengill. ‘Give me your tired, your hungry, your feeling not so fresh.'”
"I’m not arguing against the free market. Just not for everything. It’s funny. Older people think socialism is capitalism’s enemy, and younger people think it’s capitalism’s replacement, but they’re both wrong. What socialism is is capitalism’s lap band. Something to prevent it from eating everything.”

N.Korea’s Little Leader Kim Jong-Un seen on a row boat to Jersey’s Imperil Buffet


                                                                       

North and South Korea have exchanged artillery fire, Yonhap news agency reports, as the North commemorates the founding of its ruling Workers’ Party. Meanwhile, North Korea’s ruler, Kim Jong Un, was conspicuously absent from an anniversary ceremony, fueling international rumors that he’s seriously ill or has been deposed. A source close to the leadership claims Kim simply pulled a tendon weighting some serious pounds during military drills and South Korea has asserted its belief that the 31-year-old is “ruling normally.”

All the information underline on this post is correct today’s information. The page is presented in jest being how weird this man is, with his American taste for food, sports and  movies and France’s wine. He is considered weird by this blog and many because even after talking after nuclear war he disappears, what ever the reason is world leaders won’t do such a disappearing act. Today is a good example in which the two koreas have been snipping at each other and Mr. fearless leader is no where to be found. You never know wether he will execute a member of his family or just shoot a rocket jot the sky just to keep people talking about him.

Historic St. George Will Present Bill Cosby and Others in Comedy Starting Soon

I just got some great news for St. George and most of Staten Island. It appeared today at the Staten Island Advance. I got the page and post it here (down below). It has all the information about the new events at St George.

A little history from this great landmark:
Centered in the historic St. George District, the St. George Theatre in its’ day was the most magnificent theatre on Staten Island. A beautiful 2,800 seat venue, Solomon Brill of the Isle Theatrical Company broke ground in August of 1928 and the doors of this palatial emporium opened on December 4th, 1929. The cost of the project, which included an attached office complex, was two million dollars, $500,000 of which was for the theatre.
 
Brill, who owned several other theatres on the Island and once owned a nickelodeon with William Fox of 20th Century Fox fame, promised to bring top-of-the-line vaudeville to the borough for an admission fee of 75 cents. He envisioned the St. George as a dream show house rivaling Manhattan's cathedrals of cinema. At a time when many of the large movie houses were built by big Hollywood studios, Brill was an independent owner of fifteen theatres in the NYC area. Prior to his death in 1932, he sold one half of his interest in the St. George Theatre to Joseph Kohn, who later sold to the Fabian Theatre chain.

The Island's newest movie and vaudeville house outshone most of its competitors of the day, including Manhattan's Capitol Theatre on Broadway. Some of the theatres unique features included the absence of any obstructions; a $25,000 Wurlitzer organ; an advanced cooling & heating system; one of the largest cantilevered balconies ever built and velvet seats, gilded balconies and grand staircases.

The main architect was Eugene DeRosa; he was assisted by Staten Island resident James Whitford, who was known as the “dean of Staten Island architects.” Mr. Whitford also designed the Ritz, Liberty and Victory theatres, none of which exist today. The ornate interior of the theatre was designed by Nestor Castro. Mr. Castro was the art director for the Libman-Spanjer Corporation which designed the interiors of many theatres in the Times Square area. The majority of the elaborate architecture that is visible to theatre patrons is the result of Mr. Castro's artistic genius.

The St. George Theatre's interior is a variety of Spanish and Italian Baroque styles. The lobby is spacious with two box office windows and six windows displaying upcoming attractions. The foyer is illuminated by large stained glass chandeliers and majestic winding staircases lead up to the equally elaborate mezzanine level. Hanging above the grand lobby are oversized paintings of a bullfight and a Spanish village. Throughout the theatre are murals, tiled fountains and sculpted figures set in niches. The balcony and mezzanine originally had 1,400 seats and the orchestra section had another 1,600; about two thirds of those remain today.

The first movie to play was "So This Is College" and the headline act was the husband and wife team of Blossom Seeley and Benny Fields. The movie and vaudeville format featured performers such as Al Jolson, Kate Smith and Guy Lombardo. The live performances ended in 1934 but began again during the 1940's when shows promoting the sale of war bonds featured personalities such as Rose Marie and Arthur Godfrey.

The theatre was sold again in 1938 to the Fabian Theater chain who continued to operate it as a movie palace until 1972. Several owners since then have tried reincarnations that included a roller rink, an antique showroom and a night club, none of which were successful. Another attempt was made in the mid-1990's to reopen as a performing arts center and a performance featuring Pat Cooper and Connie Francis was presented. This venture, too, failed and the owner ultimately gave up. With the exception of filming the finale of the 2003 film “School of Rock” at the theatre, it has basically remained shut for the past 25 years.
 
Rosemary Cappozalo, along with her daughters Doreen Cugno, Luanne Sorrentino and Rosemary Hillers entered the picture in April of 2004. "Mrs. Rosemary" as she is better known due to her forty plus years as a dance teacher on Staten Island, took over the theatre which was transferred to the Richmond Dance Ensemble, Inc., a not-for-profit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to the restoration of the historic St. George Theatre and its development as a Cultural and Performing Arts center. As the new owners and operators of the St. George Theatre, they began major repairs to restore the theatre back to its' original magnificent splendor.  In the Fall of 2007, the not-for-profit organization became the St. George Theatre Restoration, Inc. 
When Mrs. Rosemary and her daughters first entered the theatre, the bathrooms were non-functioning and had water pouring through the ceilings; the ornate plaster walls had holes the size of their bodies; the orchestra seats had been torn out and those in the balcony had been vandalized;
the building needed a new roof and there were broken cinder blocks and glass throughout. Mrs. Rosemary poured her life savings into the project and, despite all the obstacles, the ladies had the theatre open in twelve weeks time.

The newly renovated St. George Theatre serves as a cultural arts center for a myriad of activities including outreach educational programs, architectural tours, television and film shoots, concerts, comedy, Broadway touring companies and small and large scale children's shows.

The magnificent St. George Theatre shines once again and serves Staten Island and all of New York. By polishing this treasured jewel, the integrity of its' unique structure will be maintained and a major boost will be given to the revitalization efforts of this North Shore community.


 
 
  
ST. GEORGE –  Jokes are serious business over the next six months at the borough's North Shore.
  
Starting Nov. 1, the historic St. George Theatre has lined up a host of male headliners plucked directly from the top comedy clubs on the national touring circuit. (And before you cry sexism, don't forget that Joan Rivers was just at the St. George in May ... and her voice is loud enough to drown all these dudes out).
  
Anyway, first up: Standup comedy veteran John Pinette, fresh off a Comedy Central special earlier this summer, bring his "Still Hungry" tour to the venue next Friday. This portly talent (who's appeared everywhere from the final episode of "Seinfeld" to the Broadway stage as Edna Turnblad in "Hairspray") is fresh out of rehab so the night should be particularly interesting.
  
The following Saturday, the sitcom world's "King of Queens" turned movie star ("Grown Ups," "Paul Blart: Mall Cop")  –  Emmy nominee Kevin James  –  makes his return to the standup comedy stage.
 
 But that's just the beginning.
  
After new year strikes, everyone from quirkball improv duo Two Man Group to the legendary Bill Cosby will take the St. George Theater stage.
