Miller says that all donates of any kinds are welcome, whether it is money or even volunteering your skills and time. "I can't stress enough how important the Lincoln Lodge was to so many people you laugh at today."

The Indiegogo campaign, Tight Five has already raised $50K privately which will help them meet their goal of opening a theater but $30,000 is still needed to secure permits, licenses and other miscellaneous items. If the goal is reached, they will be in their new location by summer.

The Daily Show with Hannibal Buress...?


Hannibal Buress is the new host on The Daily Show! Just kidding, he's just auditioning. Watch this funny video of him trying to take Jon Stewart's spot. He seems like a solid potential replacement, right? First he needs to get facts and maybe some lens for his glasses. But he thinks that they wouldn't hire a black man anyway, except when they hired Trevor Noah. Watch this super funny clip. Seriously.

The Daily Show: "U Name It!" Challenge


In a couple days, we will all be sitting around the table with our families, laughing, smiling, and have lot of feel good moments, right? Maybe for some people but not all. After this intense election, some opposing views from family members might be a bit unwelcome and honestly just fucking terrible. Thanks to The Daily Show with Trevor Noah and correspondent Roy Wood Jr. here's a great distraction for those uncomfortable moments with the "U Name It" Challenge. This tune is so catchy, you might forget that your uncle wants to make America great again.
