VOTE: Is Netflix Screwing Over Tiffany Haddish??

no title

Like the rest of America right now, we are loving Tiffany Haddish.

Gurl is a natural born comedy STAR who finally hit her tipping point with last year's Girls Trip and as such got a big payday for her next standup special on Netflix.

According to MediaTakeOut, Tiffany is getting $800,000 for the comedy hour. But is that enough for her talents??

Some fans are saying this is further proof that Mo'nique was right when she turned down $500k — that Netflix isn't doing right by women of color.

Chris Rock Admits Cheating On Ex-Wife In Poignant New Netflix Special!

Filed under: TV NewsChris RockBreakupsNetflix

Chris Rock gets brutally honest in new Netflix special.

In Tambourine, which began streaming today, The Top Five star blames himself for his 2016 divorce from wife of 17 years Malaak Compton.

In addition to being, in his words, "a fucking asshole" who "didn't listen" and "had an attitude," he also admits he cheated on her:

"I was on the road, I ended up sleeping with three different women."

In his usual way, Rock has developed a theory about cheating that might help warn some men off from doing it. He cautions:

"When guys cheat, it's like we want something new. But then you know what happens? Your woman finds out and now she's new. She is never the same again. So now you got new, but you got a bad new."

Ch-ch-check out the preview (above) and see the entire special on Netflix now.

Amy Schumer Accused Of Stealing Jokes AGAIN! Watch & Decide For Yourself!

Filed under: TV NewsFunnyAmy Schumer

no title

We've seen a lot of accusations of plagiarism in music, screenwriting, AND comedy.

Sometimes they're looking for a quick buck, sometimes it's for attention, and every once in a while there's legit merit to the claims of stealing.

Sadly, you can add Amy Schumer's name to the list of those accused of ripping off others' work and passing it off as their own.

This isn't the first time people have brought up the similarities between Amy's standup and that of late comic Patrice O'Neal.

But in a new video making its way around the web, some of the Trainwreck star's material is also juxtaposed with those of comics Wendy Liebman and Kathleen Madigan.

Is it coincidence? Parallel thinking? Or did Amy straight up jack these jokes??

#Kleanse Spotlight: Tig Notaro Opens Up On Doing Standup Comedy Topless After Her Double Mastectomy!

Filed under: InspirationHealthFunnyGirl Power

Tig Notaro reminds us why she's one of the bravest comedians out there!

For most people, having to stand up and speak in front of a large audience while being totally exposed is quite literally their worst nightmare!

But for comedienne and cancer survivor Tig Notaro, it's just a part of her routine!

Back in 2012, the Mississippi native was diagnosed with bilateral breast cancer and had to undergo a double mastectomy, and she immediately began to think of ways to incorporate her surgery into her act:

"Right after my surgery I had the idea to do a show topless. I was so uncomfortable with my body, and I didn't really know how to process it. I thought: Oh my gosh. What if I did a comedy show with my shirt off? How crazy!"

Well, that's certainly one way to own it!

Bill Cosby Faces Three More Stand-Up Show Cancellations In The Wake Of His Sexual Assault Scandal

Filed under: Icky Icky PooBill Cosby

no title

With all of the sexual assault allegations mounting every day against Bill Cosby, it's surprising his stand-up performances weren't yanked sooner!

Although Bill performed last night for a sold out crowd in the Bahamas at a benefit for an African American women's service organization, multiple venues just cancelled his upcoming scheduled shows.

That's right, although Bill was set to go onstage at Treasure Island in Las Vegas in a week's time, the casino has decided to cancel his act.

A Treasure Island rep said the decision was "mutual" in a statement, and in light of the cancellation, the casino will offer refunds.

In addition, the Desert Diamond Casino has cancelled Bill's February 15th show, as well Champaign, Illinois' Virginia Theatre, which axed his April performance.

We think this might be an appropriate action to take, seeing as how Bill seems to have another one of his alleged victims come forward daily.

The most recent victim to do so claimed that Bill allegedly forced her to pleasure him. This is becoming a lot for everyone to handle.

Mo'Nique may have won an Oscar, but for all we know she's smelted down that gold!

Now, Mo'Nique's performing stand-up at the West Nyack, New York's Palisades Center! Oh no! At a place called Levity Live! Oh double no!

We think she's super talented and that she should be moving us to tears (comedically and/or dramatically) on the big screen!

According to a source, the venue she's performing at is in between a Outback Steakhouse and a pretzel stand!

There are apparently still tickets left, so if you're in the area support this wonderful lady!
