Aziz Ansari Wants Millennials To Vote!

Every single fucking time we get to the election cycle, some celebrity reads a script, looks into the camera and tells you how important it is that you let your voice be heard. That's a fucking stupid way to get anyone to vote when you really think about it. No one has ever said, "I was really unsure about voting but Chingy really inspired me." Really? Stand up comedian and actor, Aziz Ansari is stunned, especially, with this election, that people are still on the fence about who to vote for! He brings funny and more realistic approach to the get out and vote.

Calvin Evans on Derrick Rose!

If you haven't had a chance to check out the weekly web series #SunnyWithAChanceOfFunny, produced by stand up comedian and actor, Calvin Evans, it's highly suggested that you do. In this episode, Evans talks about the rape allegations & final verdict given to Derrick Rose as well as discussing the consensual sex issue. He also covers that fucking awkward moment of Rose, the jurors and the judge having a warm candid moment... WTF? It makes you want to question the professionalism of the case as a whole.
