Dom Joly at his Best!
 
Trigger Happy Tv is the highlight of Dom Joly's entertainment career. The shows is extemely funny and will have laughing. Its much like Candid Camera only without a host or an audience. Dom Joly goes out a fools the english public with strange gags that leave people angry or confused or laughing. Some of his characters are the big cell phone guy and the man from Switzerland. The show also has large goofy mascots. Travis Draft, Jerry Minor and Jessica Makinson came to the show in 2003 doing gags in America along with Dom Joly. The show ended later on that year because of some legal problems but Comedy Central still shows reruns of this great hidden camera show.

Clipboards, Yoga and Fig Newtons
 
Brian Regan gets up on stage in Comedy Central Presents: Brian Regan to discuss his problems with his health and diet. He put everything into perfect, yet funny words that will have you laughing all day. Yoga isn't the way to go with him. Niether is going to the eye doctor and having to decide if lends number one is better then lends number two. He also discusses the way people have been dieting to stay fit by eating lemon rinds and steamed raisin skins. Thats definitly not for him. He rather eat Fig Newtons by the sleeve while watching a strong man show with his favorite pillow. I don't want to give anymore away so laugh it up with Brian Regan's half hour comedy special, Comedy Central Presents: Brian Regan.

Way Beyond Two Thumbs Up!

Chappelle's Show is laugh out loud funny. Dave Chappelle and the rest of his writers really prove a point or make fun of current events or even past events going on in the world. Dave has great characters such as Tyrone Bridges, a "crackhead" who has gone out of his mind. Dave also does good celebrity impressions, his most famous being his Rick James impression.Dave always has good material with the sketches and his stand-up on the show. Some other cast members on the show are Charles Q. Murphy, Billy Burr and Randy Pearlstein. His cast really help out Dave with sketches. Charles Murphey is my favorite cast member. Charlie Murphy's True Hollywood Stories is where Dave's Rick James impression came from. Most episodes Dave has a musical guest at the end of the show. Usually the guests are rap or hip-hop musicians. Some well know performers like Snoop Dogg and Busta Rhymes have preformed of the show. There has been word that Chappelle's Show might be over and I would be very upset if that happened. Its always a party on Chappelle's Show and it always will be.

Wanda Does It All!
 
This was not completely a reality show. They used actors and actresses for some roles, but it still had Wanda's smart-ass personality. They did not take away the way she is, a comedian who likes to tell it like it is. Wanda can really make you laugh. Her manager Tim Brewer and her friend Sue would always be around, getting her out of trouble since shes always causing it. Sometimes she would do stuff she shouldn't have been doing. Personally, my favorite episode is when Wanda became a repo woman. She had to tow cars from people who didn't pay for the automobile. Funniest episode! Wanda Does It is on Comedy Central.

The Best Roadtrip Movie
 
If you have read reviews on Rolling Kansas that say the movie was terrible, I say they're all wrong. Rolling Kansas is a fantastic movie. Its about five guys, three of them brothers, from Texas on there way to a magical forest of marijuana in Kansas that the three brother's parents had a map of. The oldest one, Dick, just went through a divorce, losing alot of his possesions and his T-shirt business is failing due to his co-worker, Bill. Very determaned, he gets the idea for the trip, to harvest and sell the drugs for money. He buys a bad car, some bad tools for this bad idea. They meet alot of different kinds of people along the way. When they get there they have a little trouble but get help from a new friend they meet up a tree. If you want to know the rest of the story, see this great movie starring James Roday, Sam Huntington, Charlie Finn, Jay Paulson, Ryan McDow and Rip Torn.

Jon Stewart
 
A New Jersey native, Jon Stewart is considered one of America's top social and comedic voices. From his anchor chair of Comedy Central's The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, he has breathed new life into a show that hadn't even seemed to need it. Since taking over as the anchorman of The Daily Show for Craig Kilborn in January 1999, Stewart's presence has seen higher ratings and awareness for himself and Comedy Central. With an election year, Stewart and The Daily Show were poised to lead the way to the White House as the torch bearers of Comedy Central's Indecision 2000 election coverage. Indecision 2000 covered the elections, debates and candidates from the Iowa Caucus and New Hampshire primary straight through to the National Conventions and culminated on Election Night with a one-hour special. Prior to taking over The Daily Show, Stewart's most recent television work was on HBO's critically acclaimed series-within-a-series, The Larry Sanders Show, playing a character he should know very well, himself. The final season saw, among other things, Stewart seemingly being groomed to take over the fictitious late-night throne from the perpetually paranoid Larry Sanders. Stewart also served as a creative consultant on the series.
