Famed Comedian Outfits Redux-ed

2 Dec


-click comedian names to see the outfits in action.

Bernie Mac wore this colorful patterned sleeved shirt on Def Comedy Jam back when most of us weren’t allowed watch. Try this sleek checkered Vintage Luis Alvear Varsity Jacket, to get the same effect without the blast of color and 90s flashback.

Bill Cosby is best known for his multicolored sweaters, however this patterned blazer worn on the cover of “Inside the Mind of Bill Cosby” teaches us that prints can be subtle. This pair of leopard printed shades from Billionaire Boys Club builds on that teachings.

Eddie Murphy and his form-fitting leather pant suit. ‘Nuff said. These Bandit Midtop Supras give an updated twist on Eddie’s leather dream while keeping your chest in your shirt.

Steve Harvey loves his suits and pastel colors. For the most part, you don’t have to get decked out to show you love for softer color palates. Wear a relaxed top in your favorite color, like this Reigning Champ Henley, to show you appreciation of the softer things in life.

Do the White Thing: Great Moments in Whiteface History

15 Nov

After every Halloween the internet is flooded with stories and photos of white people dressed in blackface. A brief look into American history explains why 99% of the time this is a horrible idea and  extremely offensive.

There are a few examples of blackface being done in a somewhat acceptable manner (see: Tropic Thunder – even that was cringe-worthy at times), but overall it’s a great way to stumble into an ass-whooping.

“Whiteface” on the other hand is generally hilarious (as it has the luxury of having no shameful history), so after the jump check out our list of Great Moments in “Whiteface” History.

R.I.P Teddy P | Classic Nutty Professor Scene

14 Jan

Soul-legend Teddy Pendergrass passed away late last night. “Teddy P” was the mastermind behind a ton of classics; a few of you reading this were probably conceived to some of his hits.

In 1996, his music even crossed into classic comedy territory with this hilarious scene from The Nutty Professor.

Rest in Peace: Michael Jackson

26 Jun

Note: This post will remain on the top of page 1 all day in remembrance of Michael Jackson. Scroll down throughout the day for the latest posts.

Michael Jackson had a pretty one-sided relationship with comedians, he provided them with tons of material and they… gladly accepted it. It wasn’t all negative though, and a ton of it was hilarious.

In memory of the King of Pop, we’ve compiled a few (non-negative) videos of impressions, stories, and jokes about Mike, that he may have even chuckled at.

His good friend Chris Tucker introduces Michael to the crowd:

Check out more after the break.
