Certifiably Jonathan is a charming documentary on the past comedic works of 85 year old Jonathan Winters, which serves as an introduction to his entire other career as an incredible painter. As a comedian Jonathan Winters is a genius, and this film brings together a huge group of people – including Robin Williams to Sarah Silverman – who have been influenced by his decidedly quirky brand of humor. Directed by Jim Pasternak, this documentary turned mockumentary is hilarious the whole way through, and contains more amazing cameos then you can imagine. There are very few living legends today, and he is one of them. In the footage of him and Robin Williams, the chemistry and energy between them is just unbelievable.

Throughout the course of human history, men and women have done a lot of crazy things for love. Orlando Bloom caused the Trojan War, Cleopatra and Latin music sensation Marc Anthony both committed suicide, and I’ve sat through at least three episodes of my girlfriend’s favorite reality show, Jersey Shore.

The ongoing misadventures of carrot people Snooki, Pauly D, JWoww, The Situation, Vinny, Ronnie, and Sammi (my spell check just lost its friggin’ mind typing all of that) broke MTV records to become the highest viewed program in the cable network’s decreasingly illustrious history with 8.45 million viewers. Still, watching these unfathomably successful people preoccupy themselves with fighting, fucking, hot-tubbing, and other asinine, “who gives a shit?” circumstances that reality television twists into a botched, Frankenstein version of what the Greeks used to call drama always seems to engage that part of the brain that’ll start flashing sirens when you smoke a cigarette, huff a tube of industrial glue, or take a nap with your head inside the oven – I know this is really bad for me, but I’m going to do it anyway.

“I think I won a wet T-shirt contest in college.”

– Kristen Schaal

Kristen Schaal has much to hide: She’s somewhat pathological when it comes to winning things, has a wet T-shirt attired skeleton rattling around in her closet, and has a proclivity for the sexy bits in Harlequin romance novels. But as The Daily Show’s Senior Women’s Issues Commentator, she was loud and proud in her support of Hillary Clinton for president. Sadly, that didn’t work out so well (though the Secretary of State gig is not such a bad consolation prize).

1. Snoop Dogg pimps out the Night Before Christmas
Cordozar Calvin Broadus a.k.a. Snoop Dogg puts his own spin on the Christmas classic. According to him, Santa would rather drink Pepsi Max from his cup than have milk with his cookies. He also alleges the white-bearded wonder has quite the potty mouth.

2. Very Bad Santa
Casting further doubt on Santa’s character, this security video catches him in a drunk and disorderly state. Let’s hope this was a post-present delivery celebration, since we’d hate to think he was driving his sleigh under the influence.

“It’s the old ‘penis-and-two-balls’ trick.”

– John Oliver

A lot of wonderful things happened in 1977: punk exploded, Apple was incorporated, Star Wars was released, transatlantic supersonic flights hit commuter airline schedules, smallpox was officially considered to be eradicated –– and John Oliver was born. 2006 wasn’t such a good vintage however, one of the few redeeming features being that it was the year the thinking woman’s bit of crumpet from The Daily Show first joined Jon Stewart’s band of merry not-news men as their Senior British Correspondent, making something that was already truly awesome even more so.

“You never make fun of people you don’t like.”

-Lisa Lampanelli

Life is all about timing. Especially when you’re telling jokes that many might view as not funny, and that even more might find downright offensive. Thus, Lisa Lampanelli, the self-proclaimed Queen of Mean, who stars in her first HBO comedy special, Long Live the Queen, picks her moments carefully –– very carefully.
