Kenan Thompson is having a great year that just keeps getting better. After wrapping up his 19th season on SNL and receiving a Hollywood Star, he will now be hosting the 74th Primetime Emmy Awards on Monday, September 12, 2022 on NBC and streaming live on Peacock.
Today, Disney+ released the first trailer and new poster of their original movie Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers and it’s a lot.
After 30 years of not having any new Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers content, the hybrid live-action/CG animated action-comedy catches up with the two former Disney Afternoon television stars in modern-day Los Angeles.
Paula Pell is ready to bring the laughs in Peacock’s newest comedy Girls5eva, which premieres on Thursday, May 6. The best part is all eight episodes will drop at once, making it your next binge-worthy show! In the female-led series, Pell is joined by Sara Bareilles, Renée Elise Goldsberry, and Busy Philipps.
With the upcoming Mother’s Day episode of Saturday Night Live hosted by SpaceX billionaire, Elon Musk, fans of the variety show and some of the cast members have been up in arms regarding why the viral dogecoin guy is even performing. Musk isn’t an actor, and his IMDB is only filled with parody versions of himself. It’s a little suspicious why the space tycoon is even performing at all.
Being a Middle Eastern kid in an American high school can be an awkward experience. You may struggle to fit in and have an unclear sense of your identity, making friends and relationships as a result. With the new show Chad on TBS, in which she plays the titular 14-year old character, Nasim Pedrad seeks to encompass that experience through reveling in the awkwardness that being an insecure MENA teenager can often entail. And it works for the most part, though the humor sometimes falls flat, especially when it leans too much into the awkwardness.
If you’re like me, Kenan Thompson was your on-screen older brother growing up in the ’90s. If you’re also like me, seeing SNL pair Thompson with the rising star that is Chris Redd should make your heart soar. The two have established so much chemistry it’s no wonder NBC’s new comedy Kenan showcases their incomparable wit and charm to its fullest extent.
Chris Redd is humbled by the company he shares, being only one of 20 other Black players in SNL’s storied history. What he hopes to leave behind at the end of his career, though, is beyond comedy. The Chicago native has been deeply involved in giving back to the Chicago community, helping raise millions for charities like the The Anthony Rizzo Laugh Off For Cancer, The Chris Redd & Friends Charity Concert, and also through the Covid-19 Protestor’s relief fund that he founded. Chris also serves on the board of directors of Poverty Alleviation Chicago.
We were so close. So close to having a genuinely positive and momentous news story about Saturday Night Live hiring its first cast member of Chinese descent in its 45-year history. And then, Shane Gillis ruined it. Ruined it with his reminder that no matter how much we like to think America has progressed in addressing diversity, the undercurrent of racism is never far behind.
