The Best Non-Cosby Jokes from the Globes

Jessica Chastain goldeng globesWhen it came to Tina Fey and Amy Poehler’s Bill Cosby joke at the Golden Globes, you were either laughing hysterically (Lena Dunham) or completely losing your sh*t (Jessica Chastain). So fun seeing harmless Clooney’s-wife-could-do-better and Meryl Streep-has-a-million-awards jokes turn into I PUT THE PILLS IN THE PEOPLE.

There were of course other funny moments from the monologue which are being a tad overshadowed…

1. Amy, to Frances McDormand: Frances, I love you. Can I just say you’re the only person in this room that I would save in a fire?

2. Tina: George Clooney married Amal Alamuddin this year. Amal is a human rights lawyer who worked on the Enron case, was an advisor to Kofi Annan regarding Syria, and was selected for a three-person UN commission investigating rules of war violations in the Gaza strip.

The judges critique was along the lines of her needing different material. But it was also mentioned that her videos on YouTube were much funnier than her set on AGT.

The Charlie Sheen Roast Was Funny (But Not The Best Ever)

Monday marked the airing of Comedy Central’s Roast Of Charlie Sheen and while it was quite funny, to me it still ranked somewhere below the Flavor Flav and Pamela Anderson, next to the Hasselhoff roast, above the Shatner one. (Precise enough?)

The roast seems to be receiving more hype than I remember past roasts getting, and I realized it must just be the high-profile relevance of Sheen.

He’s almost bigger today than he ever was, but for all the wrong reasons…
