Things Get a “Little” Strange When Craig Robinson Wears a Tam O’Shanter Hat in ‘Beverly Luff Linn’ Trailer
Often times, the best trailers get you intrigued with a movie without really telling you what’s going on. You’re confused, yet, maybe you want to see more.
Such is the case with the trailer for An Evening with Beverly Luff Linn, directed by Jim Hosking and co-written by Hosking and David Wike. There seems to be a caper afoot, but the hype over a stage show that stars a man named Beverly Luff Linn (played by Craig Robinson) in Scottish garb seems to take precedence over any confusion (even though it’s not quite clear what the show is).
See for yourself in the trailer here, then look for An Evening with Beverly Luff Linn in theaters and On Demand & Digital starting October 19th.
Ingrid Goes West Expands to Theaters Nationwide Today
That’s right. Ingrid Goes West isn’t just playing in major U.S. cities with hip arthouse and indie theaters.
It’s got a full nationwide release starting today and playing at a theater near you.
So, you have as good of a chance as any to see Aubrey Plaza in one her best roles yet as a social media obsessed loner that’s a little too comfortable with stalking on the big screen.
Find showtimes for Ingrid Goes West here.
“Ingrid Goes West” Now Playing in Limited Release
Ingrid Goes West really did take us by surprise, mostly because we didn’t know what to expect. We especially didn’t expect something that’s both hysterical and suspenseful falling in line somewhere between, as we’ve said before, What About Bob?, Nightcrawler, and Young Adult.
We certainly can’t remember the last time we saw a psychological thriller comedy that was worth telling people about (or even really think of one off the top of our head).
Today, it opens up in NY and LA (and will open up in theaters nationwide later this month). Please find a screening nearest to you here.
Little Hours Red Band Trailer Plays Like Spiritual Sequel to Monty Python and the Holy Grail
Little Hours is a raunchy, unfiltered comedy set in medieval times juxtaposing the sort of comedy that might star Alison Brie, Dave Franco, Aubrey Plaza, Kate Micucci, John C. Reilly, Molly Shannon, and Fred Armisen, but have nun, king, and peasant costumes.
That being the case of writer/director Jeff Baena’s latest work, you can see in the trailer how this could almost be the origin story of the “perilous” Castle Anthrax in Monty Python and The Holy Grail.
Also, we loved that the Catholic League calls it, “Pure trash,” and that pull quote is featured in this trailer.
So, look for Little Hours to hit theaters on June 30th.
“Joshy” Trailer Has Thomas Middleditch Continue with Bachelor Party After Wedding Has Been Called Off
With an ensemble cast of Thomas Middleditch, Nick Kroll, Adam Pally, Brett Gelman, Alex Ross Perry, Jenny Slate, and Aubrey Plaza, you might think you’re listening to a supersized episode of Comedy Bang! Bang!
However, for the moment, that’s not the case. That cast has been assembled for the dramedy, Joshy, from Jeff Baena. Middleditch plays a groom-to-be whose wedding gets called off, but has to go through with the bachelor party anyway.
Sounds fun, huh?
Look for it in theaters starting August 12th, then streaming on Hulu.
“The Pistol Shrimps” Documentary Gets a Trailer
Comedy and Women’s Rec League Basketball have intersected like they have never have before at The Pistol Shrimps.
Many women in the LA comedy community have found common ground by joining in on the same basketball league including The Pistol Shrimps that could be a powerhouse comedy troupe if it wanted.
Ultimately, this makes the game way more fun to watch. Where else are rec league games watched by a packed house and have members of Superego do commentary?
A documentary of this whole world was made, did the festival circuit, and has gotten picked up to stream soon at Seeso.
Here’s a taste of what’s to come in this trailer.

Dan Harmon Gets Infatuated with Mary Wollstonecraft Played by Aubrey Plaza on Latest “Great Minds”
The History Channel to Launch Collection of Short Form Series Including One from Dan Harmon
(via The Hollywood Reporter)
Looks like that Adult Swim model is more popular than ever.
Night Class will be a late night block, not unlike Adult Swim on Cartoon Network. The block will include Great Minds with Dan Harmon (Dan travels in a time machine to visit history’s greatest minds as played by Jack Black, Aubrey Plaza, Paul F. Tompkins, Thomas Middleditch, Sarah Silverman, and more), Crossroads of History (Elizabeth Shapiro highlights some of the more unbelievable, less talked about moments in history featuring Jack McBrayer, Wayne Knight, Lloyd Ahlquist, and more), and How to Lose the Presidency (a panel revisits how certain candidates committed campaign suicide).
We’ll all actually get to see how Night Class feels next week when it premieres Feb. 25th at 11:30PM.
Paul Scheer and Rob Huebel’s Comedy Special Filmed on a Moving Bus, “Crash Test”, Out Today
Paul Scheer and Rob Huebel really did shoot the entire thing on a moving bus driving all around LA not only have live comedy on the bus, but also “run into” folks like Aubrey Plaza, Earl Sweatshirt, Thomas Lennon, Aziz Ansari, and more.
Watch Trailer For Paul Scheer and Rob Huebel’s “Crash Test” Special That They Did on a Moving Bus
In fact, they had stops that featured the likes of Aziz Ansari, Rob Corddry, Andy Daly, Ben Garant, Ian Karmel, Natasha Leggero, Tom Lennon, Jack McBrayer, Seth Morris, Aubrey Plaza, Earl Sweatshirt.
All of this was shot in a special years ago and is finally going to become available for all to bear witness to the madness they and director Lance Bangs put together.
Superego’s Matt Gourley and Mark McConville Do Live Game Commentary For Pistol Shrimps Basketball as “Pistol Shrimps Radio” Podcast
Before you even start forming the question, you do not have to know sports to get into this. In fact, you don’t even have to be in attendance of the game that Matt and Mark are commentating on to enjoy it.
You’ve already probably heard about the LA based women’s basketball rec league that has gotten a lot of press from having The Pistol Shrimps (as well as the league’s dance squad, The LA City Municipal Dance Squad) that are filled with great comedy folks like Stephanie Allynne, Aubrey Plaza, and more.
Well, they now have a podcast of live in-game commentary, Pistol Shrimps Radio, done by two of the funniest people on podcasts/”venerable sports acknowledgers” Matt Gourley and Mark McConville who we’d hope you would know from the hysterical podcast Superego.
Here’s a whole episode on Soundcloud of what both sports fan and non-sports fan can enjoy so long as they both love absurdist comedic stylings.
They’re already ten episodes in, so listen, catch up, subscribe, etc.

It’s going to be even more “supremer”?
Tenacious D is having their 3rd Festival Supreme on Oct. 10th back at the Shine Expo Hall & Fairgrounds near USC.
Just from the looks of the line-up, Jack and Kyle are making for one hell of a day of music and comedy.

If you want to get in on the action, make sure to get your tickets on Jun. 11th here.
Fox ADHD’s “Golan The Insatiable” Makes It Network TV Debut on Fox Tonight
So, tune in 9:30PM tonight on Fox to Aubrey Plaza and Rob Riggle voice a sinister little girl and her demon pal and hopefully proof that Fox ADHD will indeed work as testing ground for new animated series that will eventually find their way to Fox.
Here’s The Trailer For Fox’s Upcoming Animated Series “Golan The Insatiable”
Aubrey Plaza voices a misunderstood goth girl and Rob Riggle voices an ancient demon and the two become friends in Fox’s latest animated series Golan The Insatiable, coming from Fox ADHD.
The casting seems pretty on point here and, though the premise is darker than The Simpsons, Bob’s Burgers, American Dad, or Family Guy, this trailer shows that Golan could potentially be as goofy and absurd as the rest of the bunch.
We’ll find out if that’s so when Golan The Insatiable premieres on May 31st at 9:30PM on Fox.
“Golan The Insatiable” To Be First Fox ADHD Series to Make It To Fox Primetime
Though Fox ADHD had to move over from Fox to FXx, it turns out Fox isn’t completely done with ADHD on their main broadcast network.
Golan The Insatiable will have a summer run on Fox in primetime and be the first series from Fox ADHD on the network since their airtime got cut. It will follow a monstrous creature from another dimension that becomes unlikely friends with a strange, little, troublemaking girl.
The pair will be voiced by Rob Riggle and Aubrey Plaza respectively along with a fantastic supporting cast of Ken Marino, John DiMaggio, Maria Bamford, Nick Rutherford, and Rachel Butera.
Golan the Insatiable is set to premiere May 31st at 9:30PM and offers a fascinating contrast to Fox’s other animated series on Sunday nights: Bob’s Burgers, The Simpsons, and Family Guy.
The Cast of “Parks and Recreation” Say Goodbye The Only Way They Know How on Late Night
Right after the finale of Parks and Recreation aired last night, the entire cast as well as co-creator Mike Schur (and a special guest that came to “Jamm” things up) appeared on Late Night with Seth Meyers to relive all the memories.
Of course, the goodbye, perhaps the last time all of them will be in a room together went as memorable and as in the spirit-of-Parks-and-Rec as it could be.
Newcastle Has Aubrey Plaza Call For The Small Brands To Band Together For Super Bowl Ad
The Super Bowl ads are just as much a tradition as the actual Super Bowl these days. Giant corporations are now spending around $4 million on 30 seconds of airtime to put on a commercial, even though it’s a thing that has arguably become harder and harder to gauge the effectiveness of.
They’ve even recruited Aubrey Plaza in a fun meta Super Bowl ad to explain The Band of Brands further. Watch it here.
While we hope this will make for one of the more memorable, talked about ads, but we do know that there will be a lot of pausing to see exactly how many brands they fit into one commercial.
Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever with The Voice of Aubrey Plaza Is What Might Break the Internet
For weeks, Aubrey has been saying how insanely meta this movie is and how both the director and Lifetime basically let her say whatever she wanted since they’re not syncing it with Grumpy Cat’s lips at all.
We can all say how true that statement really is, in addition to see whether this will outdo Kim Kardashian’s butt in attempting to break the Internet, tonight at 8PM.
Also, Plaza encourages you all to live tweet the experience right along with her.

Aubrey Plaza Makes a Convincing Pitch For Us to All Watch Lifetime’s Grumpy Cat Christmas Movie
Rather than a trailer or quotes pulled from favorable reviews from critics, Lifetime should have their marketing campaign lead by Aubrey Plaza’s explanation of Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
She can’t believe what went down with her voicing one of the most famous cats on the Internet, notes that this movie is historic, and uses the word “insane” more than once when describing working on it.
Those are pretty good selling points as far as we’re concerned. If you’re so inclined to now watch Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever, it premieres on Lifetime on Nov. 29th at 8PM.
Aubrey Plaza, Fred Armisen, and More Join ‘Fresno’
The upcoming comedy feature Fresno was already intriguing enough following Judy Greer and Natasha Lyonne as two dysfunctional sisters that are hotel maids attempting to dispose of a body.
Now, the likes of Aubrey Plaza, Ron Livingston, Molly Shannon, and Fred Armisen have joined the cast.
From the looks of it, Fresno has never been more appealing.
Watch This Promo for The Pistol Shrimps, The Basketball Team with a Bunch of Great Female Comedians on It

They also have this awesome promo that you should watch right now whether you’re a hater or not.
Well, If Aubrey Plaza Is Going to Voice Grumpy Cat, You May Have Sold Us on Your Christmas Movie, Lifetime
(via TV Guide)
Lifetime is indeed making Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever set to premiere on Nov. 29th at 8PM. While the idea may seemed crowdsourced by the whole of the Internet, getting Aubrey Plaza to voice the Grumpy Cat seems more than perfect casting and definitely one thing this TV movie needed.
So, Lifetime will undoubtedly have a boost in their younger demos that night as well as a whole new set of fan made .gifs that will be on every one’s social media feeds.
