Even with a successful film acting career, a new R&B album he’s touring to support, and his ongoing 3 year-long campaign for the Oscar he’s already won, Jamie Foxx is not one to rest on his laurels. Not when there are so many mediums out there through which attention can be heaped upon this prodigious actor/comedian/musician/circus mime. According to this report (via CC Insider), Foxx and Sirius Satellite Radio have announced The Foxxhole, a new comedy, entertainment and lifestyle channel that will launch this spring.
The Foxxhole will feature Urban comedy bits from a large number of comedians and showcase music, skits, radio theater and more. Foxx will be heard on the channel daily with a segment featuring dispatches from wherever he is. Heâ€™ll also be heard weekly, along with his team of contributors in a weekly show.
Ah yes, what could make one’s drivetime radio any more pleasant than Jamie Foxx riffing on why he loves asses, doing a Puff Daddy impression, then suddenly breaking into the chorus from Kanye’s “Golddigger”? The thought of such rich entertainment makes me wonder what else might be in store for the Foxxyness Empire of Fame. Professional athletics? A Nobel Prize? Maybe he could start a blog and call it “Foxx News”. Let’s hope so.
If you had to sort through as much of TMZ’s “Oh my god, some girl from Laguna Beach is going to the dentist!” videos as I do, you’d think this was one of the funniest (in a scary way) things you’ve seen all week, too. Maybe you will anyway. The “show us your gills!” line is pretty priceless.

Every afternoon, I take 45 seconds out of my day to watch the Family Feud final round, where two family members are asked 5 questions (separately) in order to win $20,000. Today… today was a genuine treat. Meet today’s contestant Robert, who was on the unlucky end of some of the most ridiculous Family Feud questions we’ve ever heard. Kudos to John O’Hurley for keeping his hosty baritone in check and not dropping dead laughing. Watch the clip, and then reenact it for friends! We’ve gotta go saddle our bird up, it’s almost quittin’ time.
Hat tip to Gawker for catching this hilarious series of unfortunate events that took place on Today, where action news guy David Gregory is trying to fill Matt Lauer’s sockless loafers while his royal glibness takes a few days away from the tube. It’s a smorgasborg of TV talk show awkwardness, but the best part is undoubtedly Gregory’s cringe-inducing “on a lighter note” segue into a segment about someone getting murdered.
Oh thank you, God up in heaven, for this delightful Faberge egg of musical beauty, a melody sung by our beloved Zarf which tickles the tiny hairs in the back of our throat with its Aladdin-like sensbility. This man’s talents are endless, and we are literally… falling… in love.
Stay tuned, people. We have big Zarf news comin’ atcha!
This video might be vintage, but I haven’t seen it before and it’s too funny not to post. After total badass-on-badass violence erupts between Good Charlotte lead singer Joel Madden and Crazy Town lead singer “Shifty Shellshock” (is he also a villain from Scooby-Doo?) backstage at some terrible party, KROQ’s wacky radio DJ with a fauxhawk is left completely baffled, yet cannot resist throwing in one of his patented “gay sex” knee-slappers. General hilarity ensues.
I know this type of thing is usually Gawker territory, but this picture/headline mistake from today’s Page Six made me laugh out loud because, in a way, it still sort of makes sense. Also I don’t get many chances to drop Norman Mailer references around here.
