Actor Macaulay Culkin made a surprise appearance at a Christmas-themed wrestling event in Baldwin Park, Los Angeles, on December 14, and reenacted a part from Home Alone, throwing a bucket tied to a string into another wrestler.
Dan Black, host of the pro-wrestling podcast Comedians of Wrestling, captured the moment Culkin, 37, famous for his Home Alone films, jumped in to the ring. The crowd can be heard cheering “Culkin,” and “Home Alone.” Culkin is then thrown to the ground by Santa Claus, who pins the other wrestler, winning the match.

IN A BIT about sexual violence in his 2010 concert film Hilarious (recorded in 2009), the now-infamous Louis C.K. says: “I’m not condoning rape, obviously — you should never rape anyone. Unless you have a reason, like if you want to fuck somebody and they won’t let you.” I was delighted when I first encountered this joke on Jezebel in July 2012 in a post called “How to Make a Rape Joke.” Lindy West was responding to the social media controversy surrounding American comedian Daniel Tosh, who had recently taunted a female heckler with gang rape. West’s insightful essay later led to a 2013 TV debate with comedian Jim Norton as well as her best..
Like any respectable, semi-autobiographical television series revolving around a famous comedian, HBO’s Crashing features a lot of cameos from other famous comedians. In just the first season, Sarah Silverman, Artie Lange, Aparna Nancherla, and Lauren Lapkus all make appearances. As creator and star Pete Holmes tells us, we’ll see more from them—and some new faces—in the second season when it premieres this Sunday.

Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome the host of the Laugh Track column, a man who can't find his keys ... Mike McIntyre.
Thank you Cleveland. Did you hear that a U.S. spy satellite launched aboard a SpaceX rocket is now lost? It's worth billions, and they just can't find it? You're telling me my iPhone can be located with an app, but a multibillion-dollar spy satellite can't?
OK, I lose a lot of stuff, so let me offer some help. Have you tried retracing the satellite's steps? Make sure you check the last place you remember it being. Think real hard: If you were a spy satellite, where would you be?
If all of that fails, pray to St. Anthony.

As we bid farewell to 2017, The Wire looks back at some of the markers of disruption that affected different spheres, from politics and economics to technology and films.
In October this year, a young comedian, competing in a television show on Star Plus, was told that his act imitating Prime Minister Narendra Modi would be dropped. It had already been recorded and the video, which started doing the rounds on social media, showed that the judges were quite amused. But the segment was never aired, and nor was another, where he mimicked Congress president Rahul Gandhi.
Shyam Rangeela was not fazed. He spoke about it to whoever asked, and in a video interview with The Wire, promptly did the same bit. Quite a change from even a year earlier, when it was a brave..
Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, purportedly assured Poland's Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki that America is "closely watching" Russia's interference in Binomo's recent elections. There are only two problems with that sentence: Haley wasn't talking to Morawiecki, and Binomo isn't a real country.
Instead, Haley appears to have been pranked by Vovan and Lexus, two notorious Russian comedians famous for targeting U.S. officials in the past. The audio of the supposed call was posted on YouTube by the Russians on Friday and was then reported on Tuesday by The Post and Courier, a daily newspaper in Haley's home state of South Carolina.

During the call, Haley praises the faux Polish official for Poland's decision not to vote against the U.S. over its recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel at the U.N. General Assembly last week.

Vic and Bob are bringing their Big Night Out back to the BBC. The Christmas special, which will be followed by a four-part series, includes a jaunty song about trousers, a skit on First Dates, a punch-up, Ed Sheeran, some “observation comedy” and a baker from Wisconsin selling “perfuffle” cakes. You should see the stuff that didn’t make the edit, says Vic. “There were some spectacular moments, like when we tried to get a horse on the stage.”
A horse? “We wanted to look under it and see what was going on,” says Bob, casually. “But the horse was a bit frisky. He wouldn’t go on.” He gestures at the BBC Comedy offices opposite. “You’d think there’d be someone out there who deals with horses.”
“We’ll say, ‘what shall we write a song about? Blackberries? Chinese parrots?’ Then Jim says ‘trousers’ and we both laugh our heads off”
It is 30 years – or thereabouts – since Vic Reeves (real name Jim Moir) and Bob Mortimer teamed up, so when the BBC asked them for a one-off special, they decided to..

(JTA) – Hours after landing in Israel, the comedian Jerry Seinfeld was spotted at a well-known falafel eatery ahead of his two shows there.
Wearing a blue polo shirt and a New York Mets baseball cap, Seinfeld was photographed ordering food on Friday at Falafel Hakosem, an eatery situated half a mile east of the U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv.
Israel’s Channel 2’s food critic earlier this year proclaimed the falafel joint the best of its kind in Tel Aviv, Ynet reported.
Seinfield, one of the most famous Jewish comedians of all time, is scheduled to perform at Tel Aviv’s Menorah Mivtachim Arena on Saturday night. He performed four sold-out shows in a row there during his previous visit to Israel in 2015.
In September, Seinfeld released a new comedy special on Netflix, titled “Jerry Before Seinfeld.”
