Sexy Iliza Shlesinger is Hilarious and Smokin’ Hot

Saturday, December 4th, 2010

Iliza Shlesinger is the youngest winner of NBC’s Last Comic Standing.  She won in 2008 and is easily the hottest female on the comedienne circuit ever.

Her other claim to fame is that she is also the only female to win NBC’s worst reality show.

She is 27, and was born in Dallas and went to college at Emerson.

“I know that it registers with other people that I’m a female, but it has never registered with me in all the comedy I’ve done over the years,” says Shlesinger.  “That’s never been an issue.  I’ve never blamed it, I’d never use it as a crutch.”

Shlesinger goes on: “I think to a lot of people it means a lot of different things.  But for me, I’m just Iliza and I won. I’m a comedian that won.  The female thing I can’t comment on because I just don’t feel that in my heart.”

Check out the video of Iliza Shlesinger’s act and let us know if you agree!

Howard had stand-up comedian Whitney Cummings in the studio this morning. Cummings has been a frequent guest since she was a runner-up in Howard Stern’s Funniest, Hottest Chick Contest back in 2008.

Whitney was in to promote an upcoming pilot, her recent killing on the Friars Club Roast of Quentin Tarantino and some upcoming stand-up gigs.  Whitney is very nice and apologizes ahead of time to her “targets” at roasts before she goes on.  Robin Quivers confirmed this and said she did pre-apologize to her at the Comedy Central Roast of Joan Rivers.

Seth Rogen and Lauren Miller Engaged: Details on his unconventional proposal on Conan

Tuesday, November 9th, 2010

Seth Rogen was the first guest on Conan O’Brien‘s premier of “Conan”

Rogen wasn’t there to promote anything in particular although he will star in “Green Hornet” on January 14.  He was however looking pretty good, you’d hardly believe he’s the guy from “Knocked Up.”

“I kind of got in shape a little bit,” he says when O’Brien brings up his general non-action-hero appearance. “If Matthew McConaughey looked like this he’d murder himself, I can tell you that. He would literally kill himself. But for me, this is pretty awesome, I’ve got to say.”

Rogen shared some details of his proposal to girlfriend Lauren Miller, they have been a couple since 2004.  Miller is  a writer who has had bit parts in a handful of Rogen’s films, like “Superbad” and “Zack and Miri Make a Porno.”

Rogen wanted the whole thing to be romantic but couldn’t stop himself  once he actually bought the ring.

“Literally, I felt like someone had given me like a truckload of heroin to hold onto,” he says. “I felt like the feds were going to kick in my door at any second. I couldn’t have a conversation with my girlfriend. All I could think of was this ring. Like ‘Don’t say ‘Lord of the Rings!’ Don’t mention anything about a ring!”

Unable to contain himself he went upstairs and decided to propose right that second.

“She was in our closet changing, and she was literally only in her underpants, and her boobs were out,” he reveals to Conan.

“I’d already kind of started, and I was like ‘Oh man, her boobs are out! That’s not part of the plan!’ I didn’t picture it like this, and I know she didn’t picture it like this. No little girl is like ‘It’ll happen in a closet with my t**s out so I figured the only appropriate thing was to place the ring on her nipple.”

Granted it’s different but still not really what a girl dreams of.

Greg Giraldo’s death is another reminder about prescription abuse problem

Thursday, September 30th, 2010

Sadly comedian Greg Giraldo died on Wednesday from unspecified complications after  accidentally overdosing on prescription drugs.

Giraldo, 44 was known to have a record of drug abuse and it’s disturbing that abuse of prescription drugs has been on the rise for the past few years, particularly among teenagers and not enough is being done to highlight this problem in the US or in Europe.

It’s time as parents we had a look at what we are keeping in our own bathrooms and at times we are unwittingly making these often-addictive drugs available to our kids.

Last Saturday the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration sponsored a medicine-chest clean out urging people to clean out their medicine stock piles.  For those who didn’t take part, here are guidelines for disposing of prescription drugs.

It’s a problem that is not going to go away and this is not a solution but at the least it’s a start.

Our thoughts are with Greg’s family at this time.
