'The Daily Show' is returning next Monday on Comedy Central, and the network has announced the first week's worth of guests for the new presenter.
Trevor Noah’s guests for his first week presenting ‘The Daily Show’ have been announced, with just a few days to go before the Comedy Central talk show takes a great step into the unknown.
Noah, who was selected by Comedy Central’s president of programming Kent Alterman to be Jon Stewart’s replacement after he retired last month after presenting the show for 16 years, will be talking to comedian Kevin Hart on his first ever show on Monday (September 28th).

These guys give a new meaning to the term brother-in-law.

With all the adorable animation of ‘Minions’ and the premise of ‘Toy Story’, ‘The Secret Life of Pets’ promises to be the most beloved animation of 2016. Check out the teaser trailer!
We’ve all wondered what our pets get up to when we leave the house and The Secret Life of Pets promises to explore our best (and worst) imaginings of our pets’ unseen antics. From the cat with extreme snacking habits to the massage obsessed sausage dog, there are definitely plenty of traits these adorable animated pets have in common with our own. Check out the trailer and see if your pet is as badly behaved as Chloe the over-eating cat, Max the overly enthusiastic dog or the budgie who yearns to be a pilot!
Bobby Moynihan provides the voice of Mel the dog in The Secret Life of Pets.
Ever wondered what your pets get up to when you're not around? Well, put it this way; your furniture, kitchen appliances, soft furnishings and even tomorrow's dinner are not safe. Some pets are ever faithful, however, such as the terrier Max who is showered with attention from his loving owner. But things get complicated when he is introduced to his owner's new pet; a mongrel named Duke, who he is determined not to let become the favourite. While they might not initially get on, their rivalry is the least of their worries when they discover that a resentful neighbourhood rabbit named Snowball is organising a plot of vengeance against all the well-loved pets in town, as well as their owners, on behalf of those less fortunate who have been abandoned on the street.

Hart gave his fans an adrenaline rush on Friday - in more ways than one.
Kevin Hart isn't messing around with his New Year's resolutions. He's even getting his fans involved. On Friday, the actor woke up his 1.9 million followers with a spontaneous invitation to run a 5k with him through Atlanta's Piedmont Park.
Hart is doing his bit to keep the nation healthy.
And around 100 people responded. Hart made sure to filter out any jokers, by promoting the race with:

Chris Rock has essentially written and directed a film based on one of his own standup routines, and the result is as hilarious as we'd expect. It's also a clever skewering of show business, from the difficulty of changing a public image to the never-ending intrusion of the press. But while the film is consistently smart and funny, it's also a bit of an inside joke, taking on an industry that's so absurd that ridiculing it might be too easy.
Rock plays Andre Allen, a former comic who found international fame playing a furry police officer in three Hammy The Bear movies. But now he wants some respect as an actor, so he has produced a serious period drama called Uprize!, about the 18th century Haitian revolution. On the day of the film's gala premiere, Andre grants an interview to New York Times journalist Chelsea (Rosario Dawson), who follows him around town as he runs errands both promoting the film and preparing for his heavily publicised wedding to reality TV star Erica (Gabrielle Union). Against his better judgement, he begins to drop his guard with Chelsea, introducing her to members of his family and inviting her to his bachelor party, which is being staged for Erica's show.
The film's one false note is the whiff of a romantic-comedy as Andre and Chelsea begin to open up to each other. Fortunately, Rock allows this to merely simmer in the background as he gets on with his wicked commentary about life in the entertainment industry. The dialogue is packed with pithy observations, sarcastic gags and knowing jabs that could only come from someone who has lived (and survived) this crazy lifestyle. Even more interesting are the darker undercurrents. Andre is a recovering alcoholic who isn't sure he can still be funny now that he's sober.

White suit clad comedian Kevin Hart gives paparazzi a wave and a quick greeting but doesn't stop to pose for photos as he arrives at the 2015 CinemaCon awards in Las Vegas, where he was selected to receive the accolade for Comedy Star of the Year.

Bieber's ordeal, conducted by Kevin Hart, went down a storm, and was the third most-watched Comedy Central roast ever.
The much-anticipated Comedy Central roast of Justin Bieber, as expected, drew strong viewing figures when it was broadcast on Monday evening.

Featuring the comedian-of-the-moment Kevin Hart as the roast master, celebrities as varied as Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg queued up to aim zingers at the 21 year old, the youngest person ever to be roasted. Subjects included his love life, music and numerous scrapes with the law. Even Will Ferrell made a special appearance as his character Ron Burgundy from the hit comedy Anchorman!

While Kevin Hart has said that he is not likely to portray a gay character on-screen, his recent films have shown off a lot of bromance.
For an actor who has said he will never play a gay character, Kevin Hart has certainly embraced the bromance, movies that use a romantic-comedy structure to explore an emotional friendship between two men.
Kevin Hart and Will Ferrel in 'Get Hard'
Just this past January, Hart infamously said that he would turn down a gay role if it was offered to him. "It's not because I have any ill will or disrespect," he said. "It's because I don't think I'm really going to dive into that role 100 percent because of insecurities about myself trying to play that part. Does that make sense? Like, what I think people are going to think while I'm trying to do this is going to stop me from playing that part the way that I'm supposed to."

'Get Hard' hasn't lived up to the hype, but it's still a decent comedy.
Get Hard, the new Warner Bros comedy starring Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart, doesn’t appear to have lived up to the promise of its hilarious trailer though maybe our expectations were a little too high in the first place – this isn’t a disaster anyhow.
Will Ferrell [L] and Kevin Hart [R] star in Get Hard
It tells the story of a wrongfully convicted investment banker (Ferrell) who prepares for prison life with the help of a man who washes cars (Hart).

'Coach', the sitcom starring Craig T. Nelson as football coach Hayden Fox, will be back on television this fall. NBC has ordered a new 13 episode season of the 90s sitcom.
The sitcom Coach, starring Craig T. Nelson, will return to our screens in a brand new series. NBC announced they had picked up the new series, consisting of 13 episodes, on Thursday (26th March). Coach has been off air for the past two decades but Nelson is set to reprise his role in the new series which will air this fall. The original series of Coach aired on ABC for nine seasons between 1989 and 1997.
Craig T. Nelso stars in Coach.
Audiences may be divided over whether this comedy crosses the line as it looks for laughs in racism and homophobia, but the cast and crew just manage to keep the movie's heart in the right place. At its core, this is another enjoyable bromance that uses cheap gags to keep the audience chuckling awkwardly. And even if the one joke requires a certain level of gay fear, the film has enough spark and personality to poke fun at what is clearly depicted as narrow-minded paranoia.
It opens in a ludicrously expansive Bel Air mansion, where naive investor James (Will Ferrell) lives with his shark-like fiancee Alissa (Alison Brie), daughter of his boss Martin (Craig T. Nelson). Then as he's performing a duet with John Mayer at his engagement party, the feds swoop in and arrest James for embezzlement. But his innocent plea is ignored, and the judge throws the book at him, sentencing him to 10 years at the notorious San Quentin Penitentiary. With 30 days before he has to report to jail, James hires his car valet Darnell (Kevin Hart) to toughen him up for life behind bars, assuming that because he's black Darnell must surely know something about prison life. Darnell needs the cash, so he plays along, turning to his gang-member cousin Russell (Tip "T.I." Harris) for some street cred.
The script adds some clever texture in Darnell's home life with his no-nonsense wife (Dickerson), who is bemused by the fact that her nice-guy husband is pretending to be a seasoned criminal. Like her, the audience is waiting for the sham to collapse hilariously around him, but the screenplay veers off in some unexpected directions that both increase the tension and push the humour closer to the edge. Even so, the movie's core issue is the gaping divide between obscene Westside wealth and the relative economic struggle in South Central. Although director Etan Cohen never takes any of this too seriously, milking every situation for maximum absurdity.

The comedian refused to break character during his late night talk show appearance.
You'd be forgiven for being a little confused by Will Ferrell’s appearance on last night’s edition of ‘The Tonight Show’, after all host Jimmy Fallon also seemed pretty perplexed by the comedian’s choice of costume. Ferrell appeared on Fallon's sofa dressed as Little Debbie's snack cakes mascot, Little Debbie and refused to break character during his interview, which was meant to be promoting new movie Get Hard.
Will Ferrell looked slightly different on last night's edition of 'The Tonight Show'
Wearing a blue check dress, a white apron, black patent shoes, white ruffle socks and with a curly brown wig under his straw hat, Ferrell gave no real explanation for his choice of attire, as host Fallon looked on baffled.
Comedians and celebrities such as Will Ferrell, Snoop Dogg and Martha Stewart turned up to crack some pretty brutal jokes at Bieber's expense.
Justin Bieber has gone on a charm offensive to improve his reputation in the wake of his Comedy Central roast, which he described as a “turning point” in his life.

Josh Gad will join Emma Watson, Dan Stevens and Luke Evans in the live-action adaptation of 'Beauty and the Beast'.

An unapologetically silly movie that manages to hit the right notes, this free-wheeling comedy makes up for its corny premise with sharp writing and acting. And as it keeps the audience laughing, it's also quietly finding some rather intriguing things to say about masculinity in American society. Thankfully, preaching a message is never this film's intention. And both Kevin Hart and Josh Gad bring so much charm and energy to their roles that they instantly become a movie duo we'd like to see together again and again.
Gad plays Doug, the nervous groom preparing for his wedding to Gretchen (Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting), a girl far hotter than he ever imagined he'd get for a wife. But Doug has no friends who are willing to be his best man and groomsmen, so he turns to his wedding planner (Serricchio) for help getting in touch with an underground service that provides them. Enter Jimmy (Hart), the fast-talking, quick-thinking best man for hire who assembles a hilariously rag-tag group of "friends" as groomsmen. As they indulge in some condensed bonding so they can convince everyone they're best pals, these guys actually begin to have fun together. And Doug begins to hope that maybe this isn't just a professional partnership.
Yes, what we have here is a bromance between Doug and Jimmy, two friendless guys who discover that maybe together they can change their lives. Filmmaker Jeremy Garelick never tries to obscure the standard rom-com structure, and the simple plot is utterly predictable, but there are surprising currents of comedy and emotion running everywhere. Hart and Gad manage to bring out all kinds of riotous humour, underlying insecurities and general comic mayhem in each scene. Hart's cocky run-on dialogue is hilarious, and matched perfectly by Gad's gung-ho physicality. But even more intriguing are the darker layers beneath the silly surface. And everything is livened up by a raucously ridiculous supporting cast, including veterans Ken Howard and Mimi Rogers as Gretchen's too-intense parents and an underused Cloris Leachman as her bedraggled granny.

Bieber will be roasted next month on the Comedy Central special.
In just over a month Justin Bieber’s lovers and haters will be united for one night only, as the singer becomes the latest celebrity victim of the 'Comedy Central Roast'.

Justin Bieber is Comedy Central's next victim.

A wedding is a time for all of your friends and family to come together and celebrate your union with another person and the start of your new family.

With the day of the wedding drawing steadily closer, Doug is convinced to hire a best man and group of groomsmen, and calls upon the services of Jimmy Callahan (Kevin Hart), owner and CEO of Best Man, Inc. From there, Doug and Jimmy have a week to establish themselves as 'best friends' and make themselves look like people that have spent the best part of their lives together. But in the process of Bachelor Parties and wedding planning, it starts to look like Doug's new friends are turning him into a completely different person.

The 35 year-old comedian was forced to address speculation that claims he purposely timed his proposal with the premiere of his ex Torrei Hart's new reality show 'Atlanta Exes.'
Earlier this week, American comedian Kevin Hart showed off his romantic side by asking his longtime girlfriend, Eniko Parrish, to marry him on her 30th birthday, and she obviously said "yes." The 35 year-old funnyman took to social media straight away to share his exciting news, but not all of his followers were very congratulatory.
Hart claims he did not purposely become engaged on the same day his ex-wife's new reality show debuted
After sharing a photograph of himself and his new fiancé, who was showing off her huge diamond ring, on Instagram, many people accused Hart of purposely timing his proposal with the premiere of his ex Torrei Hart's new reality show 'Atlanta Exes' in order to outshine her.
A third film is on the cards, but can Bay, Smith and Hart all be free at the same time?

'Think Like A Man Too' is finally set to hit the UK and, after the hilarity that ensued with the first 'Think Like A Man' movie in 2012, we have to admit we're excited.

The trailer for 2014's comedy Think Like a Man Too, follows the exploits of the original film's cast as they work their way around Las Vegas on a stag and hen night. When Michael (Terrence J) and Candice (Regina Hall) decide to get married in Las Vegas, they set off with friends in tow, but as each couple arrives, they bring with them more than their fair share of baggage. Zeke (Romany Malco) is haunted by his womanizing past, causing a strain on his relationship with Mya (Meagan Good). Jeremy (Jerry Ferrara) and Kristen (Gabriel Union) are already married and trying for a baby, while Bennett (Gary Owen) and Tish (Wendi McLendon-Covey) struggle to regain the spark in their relationship.
