Kyling It On: The Kyle Kinane Interview

Legend has it that while on the set of the 1941 horror classic, The Wolfman, Lon Chaney Jr.’s stunt double, “Big” Dally Kinane, said, “Rrrrrrrrrrr.” It seems fitting that the man who uttered that poignant phrase would, decades later, have a grandson climbing the ranks of comedy stardom.

Cornell Reid: Straight Out Of No Hum

He assumes that you already know he is funny. In his e-mail signature he opts out of including the title of Comedian and instead goes for a much more titillating job description: President of the Cathy Fan Club.

A Day of Living Extreme

6:30a – My phone alarm goes off. Normal me prefers the “Classic Bell” tone. But not extreme me. Extreme me hits snooze but before going back to sleep, changes the alarm to Iron Maiden’s The Number of the Beast. 6:45a – I awake terrified, having forgotten about the alarm change. I regain composure and hit snooze again. 7:00a – OH …
