Quote of the Day: Amy Poehler on Jon Hamm

Jon Hamm and Amy Poehler

"I was due the next day. So it's my first kid, I'm in a Mad Men outfit, I turn to everybody and I hysterically start crying, and a really pregnant woman crying is terrifying. So, juicy tears just like squirting out of my eyes. And it was like the punch line to a joke, it's like, my doctor just died and I'm due tomorrow. And Jon Hamm, who I am just getting to know, comes over and puts his hands on my shoulder and is like, 'This is a really important show for me. I'm gonna need you to get your s*** together.' And I laughed so hard, I probably peed myself – I believe that going through crying to laughing adds like five years to your life."

- Amy Poehler recounts in her memoir how Jon Hamm helped her get through her first pregnancy on Saturday Night Live.

The "On The Floor" singer is worried she will be a "giggling fool" during her stint as a judge on the singing competition, because fellow panellists Keith Urban and Harry Connick Jr. make her laugh so much during shooting.

Speaking during an American Idol season 13 live Q&A on Tuesday, Jennifer said, "I love being between these two guys, I love being on the panel with these guys, they do have a lot of banter going on. They make me laugh, I think the danger this season is not to come off like a giggling fool, because they make me laugh so much, we really are having a good time. They're awesome."

J.Lo claims Keith is the "prankster" of the group, while newcomer Harry - who joined the panel this year - admitted he is the "mischievous" judge and tries his best to make the curvaceous beauty laugh all the time. "There is so much going on, anything to make her lose it," he quipped.

John Oliver Wants Queen Elizabeth on ‘Daily Show’

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Comedy, Talk Shows, Cable, Features

John OliverJohn Oliver wants Queen Elizabeth to appear on The Daily Show.

The British-born comedian is set to take over the reins of the show from Jon Stewart for three months and revealed his ideal guest would be the 87-year-old monarch.

"I promise you I will do everything in my power to get Her Majesty the queen as a guest. If I can't get her, I will try to get Helen Mirren dressed as the queen. If that doesn't work, I'll get Senator Mitch McConnell and have him dressed as either the queen or Helen Mirren. If any one of those works out, I guarantee you will see the most awkward, borderline treasonous, yet memorable interview in the history of television," he wrote in the latest issue of GQ.

John also joked he plans to have all of his guests take an oath of allegiance to the British flag during his stint as host: "Each show will begin with a pledge of allegiance to the Union Jack. This is non-negotiable, and I think it'll help with the guest-booking. I'm looking forward to this summer. It's going to be one of the strangest experiences of my life, and I hope you'll share it with me. Think of it this way: It's still going to be everything you love about The Daily Show, just without the thing that you love most about it."


Tina Fey Hopes for Drunk Celebrities

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Award Shows, Comedy, NBC, Gossip

Amy Poehler and Tina FeyTina Fey hopes the celebrities at the Golden Globe Awards get drunk and embarrass themselves.

The 30 Rock star will co-host the ceremony with her friend Amy Poehler, but the duo believe alcohol will help make the night more entertaining and are hoping those attending will drink lots.

"Because it's such a fun kind of sloppy night, it's not really about the host giving any kind of big comedy performance. It's our job to keep things moving and also try to get the movie stars more liquored-up so that hopefully someone's boob will fall out of a dress. That's our main role. The luckiest we could get would be for something interesting and spontaneous to happen. We have a lot of spontaneous things planned," Tina said.

However, Parks and Recreation star Amy joked she is going on a pub-crawl before the ceremony on Sunday: "I'm going to pub-crawl it all the way to the venue and then try to take a two-hour blackout nap before we start, and then as soon as the show is over, I'm going to go on a 10-day juice cleanse."
