Ralphie May Releases New Stand-up Special Via Netflix

Comedy legend Ralphie May has partnered with Netflix to release his latest stand-up special, and earlier this week a teaser for the premiere was shared online.

Titled Unruly, the latest special from May is his first since 2012′s successful Too Big To Ignore tour. Filmed live in front of a raucous, fist-pumping crowd at Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre in Atlanta, May unleashes his hilariously raunchy, no-holds-barred perspective on everything from airline travel and the news media, to Chick-fil-A and everybody being a little racist when they drive.

You can view a preview of the special below:…

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Let’s Kill Ward’s Wife’ Delivers Big, Inconsistent Laughs

Film: Let’s Kill Ward’s Wife
Starring: Donald Faison, Patrick Wilson
Directed By: Scott Foley

Following a long tradition of comedic films about murder that never find the right groove, Let’s Kill Ward’s Wife is an inconsistent romp that works more often than not.

Ward is a full-grown man with a decent job, a beautiful new child, lifelong best friends whom he sees regularly, and a wife he – as well as everyone else – cannot stand. She is a mean, snobbish, and overly-protective woman who seems to only find pleasure in making others miserable. Everyone wishes she were dead, including …

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Sex Ed’ Is The Best Comedy Of The Fall

Film: Sex Ed
Starring: Haley Joel Osment, Laura Harring
Directed by: Isaac Feder

Topping off a year-plus run of great supporting roles in several underrated indie gems, Haley Joel Osment is back in the spotlight with a hilarious new film called Sex Ed.

Hollywood contains a long history of finding humor by showcasing children behaving badly, but rarely has a story riddled with filth been met with the amount of heart found in Isaac Feder’s Sex Ed. Based on a script from Bill Kennedy, the film follows a twenty-something named Eddie — who, following a long bout of …

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Dumb And Dumber To’ Is Worse Than It Looks

Film: Dumb And Dumber To
Starring: Jim Carrey, Jeff Daniels
Directed by: The Farrelly Brothers
Genre: Comedy

Twenty years have passed since Harry (Jeff Daniels) and Lloyd (Jim Carrey) taught audiences about their lives of idiocy, and in that time almost nothing has changed. That’s both the beauty and problem with their latest adventure, which to put it simply falls far short of everyone’s expectations.…
