Black Comedy and…Eddie Winslow?!

Q. What happens when Samia Khan tags along with her friend Jessica Berry to a comedy show at the J-Spot in Inglewood? A. Samia realizes she has less street cred than she thought (i.e.: They’re playing a rap song, she goes “Why aren’t they playing 2 Chainz?!” and her friend points out …“Samia, this IS 2 Chainz.”) B. …

One Joe Jonas & a Side of Chipotle Mayo

Look. I’m a sucker for boy bands and anything 13-year-old girls like. I’m currently addicted to Carly Rae Jespen’s “Call Me Maybe” and have been known to watch Nickelodeon’s “iCarly” onDemand. Needless to say, as I was sitting at the bar at Birds in Franklin Village, catching up with the oh-so-dreamy Manish Dayal of 9021O …

Donald Glover vs Troy Barnes vs Childish Gambino

I’d like to issue an apology to Donald Glover for taking two years to write a blog post about him. You see, the man also known to “Community” lovers as Troy Barnes and hip-hop heads as Childish Gambino is incredibly talented… and I? Well, I’m just a procrastinator. Perhaps I should take a hard-working cue …

A Legendary Run-In with SuperModel Chrissy Teigen

“Hi…um, I follow you on Twitter, so it’s totally acceptable that I followed you into the bathroom, right?” The aforementioned quote? ALMOST actually stated, as a “pickup” line (on a girl, mind you)… So here’s the deal. I’m at the Hollywood Improv to check out a few friends (Jonny Loquasto and Grant Cotter) who are …

Ron Artest: From Ballin’ to Bawlin (from Laughter)

Knock knock. Who’s there? Ron Artest. Ron Artest who? Ron Artest the comedian. Okay okay, I know that wasn’t the best joke you’ve ever heard… but um, that’s because it’s not a joke. It’s reality (funny reality, albeit.) So as any basketball fan knows, the NBA is locked out. As a result, basketball players are …

Parks, Recreation, and…Mustaches?

OK so I have a confession… Everytime I see a mustache, I can’t help but laugh. OK maybe not laugh, but smile. Smirk. LOL in my head. And well, this past November was no exception… that’s when, thanks to a few dear friends (yes Waldo and Waseem, I’m talkin about you guys,) I learned about …

Jerry Seinfeld: My Relationship Ref

Growing up, I wasn’t allowed to watch Seinfeld. In fact, you’d typically hear my mom saying, “Samia, go to your room!” whenever my older brother was watching this (or Friends. I was also sent to my room when my dad watched “90210” and “Melrose Place.” Don’t ask me why my dad chose the programming he …

Jokes on…Jokoy?

Jokoy. Filipino comic, who you may know from the Laugh Factory (where I first saw him back in like 2005,) or more recently on a national scale as a frequent panelist on Chelsea Lately’s roundtable. Anyway. Why I’m writing a “Khanversation” piece on him is kinda funny/random, so obviously background is needed. A friend of …

Hanging out with Russell Brand…

I Love British Accents. Needless to say, producing a shoot with British comic/actor/host/author Russell Brand was well, “lovely.” Post-interview, I asked if he’d be in Pirates of the Caribbean 4, because well, he could totally pull off the whole pirate thing…and I’d heard rumors about him playing Johnny Depp’s brother. He said probably not, he’s …
