John Oliver and His Last Week Tonight Team Take The NCAA Down a Notch or Two (or Lots of Notches)
Wherever reasonable voices are unjustly being ignored, it seems as John Oliver and Last Week Tonight are going to make those voices heard. Whether they may be clamoring voters in U.S. territories or unpaid NCAA student athletes, they’re attempting to have it all covered and doing a bang-up job.
With The NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament better known as March Madness looming along with its huge windfall in profit for many involved, Oliver made a damning report last night, and one of his longest to date, on how absurd the NCAA is being for not only making their student athletes forego any sort of compensation, but also making them live a life or ridiculous expectations for a dream that statistically won’t happen and could go away with one injury.
Cobra Commander Makes a NCAA March Madness Bracket
As March Madness is officially here, Fox ADHD took their own spin on it and coupled it with actual madness in the form of Cobra Commander from GI Joe and his attempt to not have his bracket busted. Looks like an evil mastermind can’t even figure this sh*t out.
Congratulations to 2013 March Comedy Madness Winner Nick Cobb
The single elimination stand-up tournament, March Comedy Madness, came to a close last night at the Hollywood Improv as one Nick Cobb emerged the winner. He was fantastic, especially for having to do back to back sets almost ten minutes within each other and killing it both times.
So, again, congratulations to the hilarious Nick Cobb and please go see him wherever he’s performing, which, we hope is a lot of places here in LA and beyond soon.
