Interview: Kevin Hart talks about his concert film “Laugh At My Pain”
Written By MCF | Posted In Interview,News

Kevin Hart is incredibly well known among comedy fans for his Comedy Central specials and albums I’m a Grown Little Man andSeriously Funny, as well as for his roles in the Scary Movie franchise, Death at a Funeral, and Little Fockers. Hart is combining his work in stand-up and feature films for a big screen release of his latest comedy special Laugh At My Pain, set to be released exclusively at AMC theaters Sept. 9. I called Kevin to get the details on the big screen flick as well as to hear about his early days in comedy and where he drew his material from for Laugh at My Pain.

How is having your special released in theaters different than having it released on television?
It’s just putting a different stature on it. It becomes an event. Releasing it on television is good and your traction is good. I’ve had success in my earlier years [with TV specials], but now because of the fan base that I’ve built, the attention that I’ve been getting, we decided to go theatrical. And going theatrical, it kind of just says, ‘Hey I’m much bigger and better than what I was before. You loved the last one, look at the stage I’m setting up for this one.’”

What are the technical differences between shooting a special for theaters as opposed to television?
For me there’s no difference. You don’t put pressure on yourself because of what you’re doing. You make sure you’re comfortable with the way it’s being set up, so it’s set up for you to win. And doing the live performance and recording it is the best way to do it, because you’re getting the immediate reaction.

Patrice O’neal (@BIGMOMMAPRODS) Interview ‘Elephant in the Room’ @ComedyCentral Special
Written By MCF | Posted In Interview

Patrice O’Neal was in South Florida last month….found this Patrice O’Neal interview at our friends Punchline Magazine….read the whole interview after the break.

There are few comedians more divisive than Patrice O’Neal. In fact, the only reason he hasn’t ruffled more liberal feathers than he already has, is due to his lack of widespread mainstream exposure. But that’s about to change with his first hour-long special Elephant in the Room for Comedy Central– premiering Saturday at 10 pm EST.

Things are about to get better, or worse, for Patrice– depending on whether he’s looking forward to critics’ closer analysis on his theories on women, race, politics and everything in between.

Comedy’s Most Powerful Man….Lorne Michaels

The Hollywood Reporter was granted access to the most powerful man in comedy. Read the rest of the story after the break.

“God this is scary. F—!” Helen Mirrenis standing in the doorway of a cramped conference room on the 17th floor of NBC’s celebrated 30 Rockefeller Center, staring in surprise at a sea of producers, performers and writers who are overflowing the tiny space.

Around 70 men and women, many dressed in hoodies and jeans, are gathered at a large wooden table, on which plates of fruit slices and sandwiches sit half-eaten. With three days to go before showtime, much of the talent is exhausted on this Wednesday afternoon — hardly surprising given that several of them, including head writer and Weekend Update anchor Seth Meyers, haven’t left the building since the previous afternoon.

Within moments, Mirren has joined them at the table and is preparing for the Saturday Night Live read-through, which has been held at 30 Rock every show week since the program first aired in fall 1975. In any other setting, the Oscar winner would be the center of attention. But not here. One of the writers glances at an empty chair right next to Mirren, knowing that the person who matters most is the one who will soon fill it.
