Sometimes comedy comes from just two funny people sitting down together.
Which is what happened on The Tonight Show when Jimmy Fallon had Ben Stiller on as his guest and the two came up with some hilarious memories together!
It started as the two talked about Ben's recent revival of Zoolander but then launched into a laughing tirade when this two played one amazing game!

If you're a fan of musicals and/or improv, then you will love the new and aptly titled Blank The Musical, currently running at our favorite off-Broadway venue, New World Stages.
The show is a fully improvised musical and the audience fills in all the blanks - title, lyrics and even helps out with the music.
A very funny (and young) cast bring to life this one-night-only musical and an equally skilled house band comes up with original music on the spot!
It's all super fun and playing for a limited time only.
We really enjoyed it and the only note we have - if it were to extend it's run - is that the audience interaction is limited to the first quarter of the show. After the setup is done so is the audience. It'd be really engaging and vicarious for all audience members if one or two were picked at certain parts to come up and be a part of the show.
We would not be surprised if a couple of these funny actors who can sing very well end up on Saturday Night Live.
So get your tickets to Blank The Musical and see them if they hit up your town or come back to NYC!

Oh hellz to the yes!
This sounds like it has A LOT of potential! Especially with a cast like this!
Olivia Wilde, Anna Kendrick, Ron Livingston, and Jake M. Johnson of New Girl have been cast in the indie improv comedy from director Joe Swanberg called Drinking Buddies!
According to reports, the film will center on the Twilight actress and Berger from Sex & The City, as their "fun and flirtatious friendship" goes "off the rails!"
No word yet on Olivia and Jake's characters, but given their already-established comedic chops, we're psyched to see how they do with a script that allows for some creative license with the dialogue!
What do U think?? Are U excited to check out Drinking Buddies??

Such a funny and heartfelt speech!
Check out the video (above) of Amy Poehler giving advice to seniors at Harvard College Class Day.
Here's a piece of advice she gave students that she learned while doing improv, which really stuck with us:
“Listen, say yes, live in the moment, make sure you play with people who have your back, make big choices early and often, and don’t start a scene where two people are talking about jumping out of a plane - start the scene having already jumped."
Thanks for all the wonderful advice AND all the wonderful jokes, Amy! We loved this!
