In no particular order…
1. Adam Sandler and Rob Schneider
Rob and Adam have appeared in 18 movies together over the course of 25 years, including ‘The Hot Chick’, ‘The Waterboy’, and ‘Mr. Deeds’.
2. Cheech and Chong
Cheech and Chong have been a power couple since the 70s, appearing in several movies together, including the cult classic ‘Up In Smoke’.
3. Amy Poehler and Tina Fey
Tina and Amy have been a killer duo since their days on SNL, and both starred in ‘Baby Mama’ in 2008. While they separated for their own projects over the last several years, they’ve reunited to host award shows and generally make everyone laugh whenever they get the chance.
4. Chris Farley and David Spade
Another duo from SNL, Spade and Farley appeared in countless hilarious skits as well as Tommy Boy and Black Sheep, which was enough to cement them on this list.
5. Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly
Ferrell and Reilly have no shortage of comedy gold – from Step Brothers and Anchorman to Talladega Nights, every time these two pair up we’re in for some laughs, and lots of quotable lines.
6. Lucy and Ethel (Lucille Ball and Vivian Vance)
I’ve always been a sucker for I Love Lucy, but part of the magic of that show was the comedic chemistry between Lucille and Vivian. Effortlessly funny, which is the best kind of funny.
7. John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd
Best known together as The Blues Brothers, a sketch that started on Saturday Night Live. The original skit didn’t even have them dressed the way their iconic characters are remembered. It literally took on a life of its own.
8. Seth Rogen and James Franco
These two started their time together on the short-lived ‘Freaks and Geeks’, but since then have appeared in several movies including Pineapple Express and This Is The End. Out of all the work they’ve done together, their parody of the Kanye West ‘Bound 2’ video was my favorite.
9. Owen Wilson and Ben Stiller
Nothing else needs to be mentioned other than Zoolander. Wilson and Stiller as male models will forever be amazing.
10. Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor
Partners forever, Pryor and Wilder have appeared in movies like ‘Stir Crazy’, ‘Blazing Saddles’ and ‘See No Evil, Hear No Evil’.
There were so many to choose from! Did we miss any? Let us know your favorite comedic duos in the comments!
Besides music, comedy is life. Our life. You can’t go through an entire day without witnessing, hearing, or reading some form of comedy. Plus, there’s different types of comedy: physical, dry, British, corny, and musical. But the type of comedy we’re going to be talking about is stand-up. I listen to stand-up more than I do music and I recite jokes from comedians like they’re my own. It makes me the life of the party. Comedy is subjective and you may not find funny what I find hilarious. Here are five comics that I think you should check out.
Did you see Kanye West on Jimmy Kimmel last night? It was an event that was filled with laughs, cringes, and face-palming moments. In case you didn’t know, both Kimmel and West were in a battle with words over a skit Kimmel did parodying the Black Skinhead rapper. In the skit, Kimmel used a child to reenact an interview West did, complete with profanity and milkshakes. This lead to an unhappy West posting hateful tweets on Twitter bashing the comedian.
Comedy has to be genetic! Funny man Kevin Hart’s daughter Heaven Hart (age 8) makes the ‘Most Popular’ page on Vine.
Heaven Hart gives us her six second comedic version of Macklemore’s popular song Same Love. “When I was in the third grade, people treated me like a criminal… Because I killed somebody.” Not only does Heaven give us a peep of her own comedic skills, she reveals her true acting skills.
With almost 30,000 likes, and over 20,000 revines Heaven made the popular mobile social media application Vine’s ‘Most Popular’ page. Fans have compared her to the comedy of her mother and father Torrei and Kevin Hart. Some have even likened her acting skill in the vine video to Dakota Fanning.
Of course the daughter of funny man Kevin Hart has not “killed anybody.” Her vine video is purely comedic and meant to be viewed in that manner. Be on the look-out for more comedy and sketches from Heaven Hart on her mother, Torrei Hart’s Vine profile.
In 2012, Kevin Hart embarked on his “Let Me Explain” tour that hit 10 countries and 80 cities. For those that missed the comedy tour, a recorded version of Hart’s performance at Madison Square Garden can be found in theaters starting July 3rd.
“Let Me Explain” does just what the title implies: it’s an opportunity for Kevin Hart to explain himself and his life. He intends to establish what he feels is the truth in this movie. The truth behind life’s ups and downs, the rumors, and the family debacles in a strictly, Hart-style stand up comedy format.
Hart has pushed the standards of comedy by incorporating hip-hop into the film. He believes that hip-hop has become such a universal, world-wide phenomenon that there was no way to avoid the intertwining of comedy and music. Hart says that the music is within him and thus it comes out within the film. He promises that it is very natural and organic and will not feel forced.
Kevin Hart is making one of the first steps to redefining the concert movie trend that’s sweeping the world with the film version of his stand-up tour. You can catch Hart’s comedy concert on July 3rd.

The E!xclusive news comes from E! News
Nearly a week after winning the milestone award at the Billboard Music Awards, Justin Bieber has officially announced his next move is marriage. But whom is he going to marry? Selena Gomez has since moved on from their relationship and he hasn’t been spotted with anyone else. E! News broke the story that Bieber is on track to marry himself.
An artist depiction of what the deal may have looked like if cameras were present.
At the Billboard Awards last Sunday, Miguel was performing his hit Adorn when he tried to jump over some audience members. He didn’t have enough height and failed to land safely; he instead landed atop a woman cheering him on. Check out the video below. It seems that it may have paid off in the long run. The action caught the eye of Vince McMahon, CEO of WWE entertainment.
Kevin Hart is a triple-threat: an actor, comedian and rapper. With his newest mock-reality tv series The Real Husbands of Hollywood airing on BET this week, Kevin Hart is back in the spotlight. But what do you really know about Kevin Hart?
1. His stand-up career was initially a flop.
His first few comedic gigs left him in a slump when he was frequently booed from the stage. It was apparently so bad, that one man threw a piece of chicken at him while he was on stage.

His first on-screen gig was in Apatow’s series Undeclared. Judd Apatow later went on to recommend Hart to host the 2012 VMAs.
3. He has a fear of dolphins.
4. He is incredibly short.
Coming in at only 5’4″, he’s one of the shortest comedians.
5. He worked as a shoe salesman before a career in comedy.
Even though he got off to a rocky start, he’s poised to become the next comedic star. Quitting the shoe industry was probably a wise choice for him.
6. He wrote and starred in his own sitcom.
The sitcom The Big House aired on ABC in 2004, but was canceled after 6 episodes.
7. He is one of the most successful comedians of his time.
Last year’s tour was the most successful comedy tour on ticketmaster. Two shows in Los Angeles raked in $1.5 million in sales. His special Laugh at my Pain is also the seventh most successful stand-up film of all time.
8. While he may not have the height to play basketball, he does have the skill.
He was elected as MVP at the NBA Celebrity All-Star game despite the fact that he didn’t even make it to the last quarter. He was ejected from the game for cursing a ref and throwing his shoes across the court. In spite of his tantrum, he managed leave with 8 points and 6 assists crowning him MVP.
9. He has a game available through iTunes.
It’s called Little Jumpman and is available for download on the iPod and iPad. The game is a simple platform jumping game where the objective is to jump higher and higher.
10. Kevin Hart cites Bill Cosby, Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle, and Eddie Murphy as his influences.
He says he wants to combine the best qualities of these men into his own act to form his own unique style.
