How Do You Parody a Reality That Already Feels Like a Parody?

Subscribe to Off Message on Apple Podcasts here. | Subscribe via Stitcher here. Inside every conspiracy theorist is a person who desperately wants to be thought of as smart and kind, and is angry they’re not seen that way. That, and also someone who’s bored. Story Continued Below That’s the read, at least, from Jordan Klepper, the comedian who’s spent the past three months hosting the Alex Jones-style parody “The Opposition” on Comedy Central, working hard to get into the heads of all the conspiracy theorists—including President Donald Trump himself—who’ve latched on to tales of illegal voters and the “deep state” and media witch hunts. It’s a position that he believes has given him insight into how Trump thinks, Klepper told me in an interview for the latest episode of POLITICO’s Off Message podcast. “As a human, there are two things that I am desperately scared of: I’m desperately afraid of being called unkind and I’m desperately afraid of being called not smart,” Klepper said.

By Ciara Farmer For Mailonline Published: 09:02 EST, 4 January 2018 | Updated: 17:05 EST, 4 January 2018 Rumours have been rife about the imminent male arrivals in the all-female Celebrity Big Brother house. And the latest stars tipped for entry in the Borehamwood bolthole are controversial funnyman Dapper Laughs, real name Daniel O'Reilly, and ballet legend Wayne Sleep while Boyzone star Shane Lynch's rumoured place in the house appeared to be confirmed by his bandmate Ronan Keating, in now-deleted tweets seen by Mirror. The only confirmed star to enter is footballer John Barnes, however Dapper Laughs' entry has been revealed by a source, who told The Sun: 'Dapper Laughs is going to make great TV and he's definitely going to spice things up. It's been a pretty bland series so far so they definitely need him in there to ruffle some feathers with the ladies.'

RIP 2017: Famous Lives & Deaths We'll Remember

2017 may not have felt like the constant barrage of surprising notable deaths we endured in 2016, but that doesn't mean we haven't lost many beloved stars this year. We were left mourning America's sweetheart when Mary Tyler Moore died in January, and one of the top teen idols of the 1970s, David Cassidy, took his final bow just last month. In between, we said goodbye to some of the architects of rock & roll, influential comedians, bestselling novelists, and more. Join us as we take a look back at the most notable deaths of 2017. MUSIC Musicians occupied the headlines in large numbers this year, including the tragic, too-young death of Chris Cornell, lead singer of iconic rock bands Soundgarden and Audioslave. His suicide was followed closely by that of his close friend Chester Bennington, front man for the influential rap-rock group Linkin Park. Tom Petty was one of the top-selling recording artists of all time, thanks to easygoing singles like "Free Fallin'" and "..

Sarah Silverman says comedian Louis CK masturbated in front of her with her consent

Sarah Silverman revealed on Monday that comedian Louis C.K. used to masturbate in front of her with her consent. “I don’t know if I’m going to regret saying this," Silverman told Howard Stern during his SiriusXM radio show, according to Variety. She continued: "I’ve known Louis forever, I’m not making excuses for him, so please don’t take this that way. We are peers. We are equals. When we were kids, and he asked if he could masturbate in front of me, sometimes I’d go, ‘F--- yeah I want to see that!’ … It’s not analogous to the other women that..

I'm a comic. I crossed the line. I move the line. Then I cross...

There was something desperate and sad in the photos of Kathy Griffin holding what was supposed to be the severed head of the President of the United States. Here was a late-period ‘90s comedian perhaps most famous for a reality show about how unfamous she was, face slack and mouth pursed as she gripped her political metaphor. Kathy Griffin, really? Nobody in the world was begging for her to emerge as a leading political voice, and yet here she was, intent on making a point about … well, I was never really quite sure. That Griffin was met with universal outrage, from the conservatives who insisted she intended to literally murder Donald Trump, to the liberals who chided her lack of tact, was an entirely predictable outcome. Subtext is not always easy to divine from a still photo, and regardless of intent it really was an artlessly unpleasant image. But it was astonishing to see how high up the controversy went: Within hours, Griffin had been denounced by the president himself, who turne..

Photo: Phil Provencio / Contributed Photo Comedian Nathan Macintosh to perform at FTC’s StageOne Back to Gallery Puppy love played a role in Nathan Macintosh’s career as a comedian. It turned out, however, the girl he used to moon over was into his sense of humor, but was unfortunately oblivious to his overall charm. “I first learned I might be able to do comedy when I was a kid and made a girl I had a huge crush on laugh,” Macintosh said. “It felt amazing.
