Critics Sip on ‘Shark-Tinis’ at Sharknado 2 Premiere

Monday night’s screening at the Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour in Los Angeles was, appropriately enough, poolside at the Beverly Hilton. Among those in attendance: Chuck Barney, critic for the Contra Costa Times and other Bay Area newspapers.

From his write-up, ahead of The Second One‘s broadcast debut on SyFy Wednesday July 30:

While the sequel features just slightly better production values, it is louder and splashier. In short, there’s more bite for the buck – and more chain saws.

Chuckler.com Launches in an Alley with Andy Dick

NYC’s Meetinghouse Productions has officially unveiled their new comedy portal. Among the offerings are the first three episodes of Melinda Hill‘s series All Growz Up. The show is filmed in a Los Angeles alley and asks invited comedy performers to recall their childhood career dreams.

Andy Dick‘s recollection is pretty hilarious. During a high school production rehearsal of Look Back in Anger, he had to make out with a 55-year-old female understudy. She subsequently wrote him a note encouraging him to stick with this showbiz aspirations.

Temple Student Riding High as @Jesus_M_Christ

Can nothing tarnish the glory of one of Twitter’s most successful messiahs? Apparently not.

Per a fun profile piece in Philadelphia magazine, Temple student Josiah Schlatter is fast approaching 400,000 Twitter disciples with his account @Jesus_M_Christ–despite having once flown out to LA to accept a National Lampoon prize from the less-than-godly Andy Dick. This particular social media savior has done remarkably well for himself, considering he launched in the year 2010 A.D.:

“Once people started retweeting, the ball started rolling. Pretty soon we had a decent amount of followers. The rest is history,” says Schlatter, who notes there’s been a definite uptick in tweeting God imposters since he began…

FBLA Goes to the Party: John Stossel and Stoli Hotel

Never let it be said that FBLA is a party pooper. First, we cheered for ABC’s John Stossel at the LA Press Club’s cocktail reception poolside at Blue Velvet. Usual gang was in attendence–Matt Welch (LAT), Mickey Kaus (Slate), Jill Stewart (LA Weekly), Amy Alkon, Luke Ford, Ed Rampell (Hustler), and Stossel signed his new book, Myths, Lies and Downright Stupidity.

Then, we dashed to The Stoli Hotel, which of course, isn’t a hotel, but rather an “entertainment space”, if seeing Paris Hilton, Bai Ling, James Blunt and Debbie Matenopolous is your idea of entertainment. We asked Debbie who’d she like to see replace Rosie, and boy! did she ignore that question. We have a way with semi-celebrities.

Somehow, FBLA had gotten this space confused with the Ice Hotel, and we were expecting to see things frozen and blue. We asked some vodka rep whatever happened to the pepper-flavored Stoli, but she had no idea. Andy Dick and a miniature date strolled by, but we didn’t ask them. Robin Antin posed with Paris Hilton, as well with those who would be Dolls. Paris won the pose. One of the Dolls-to-be told us she worked hard, but played hard too. At least we know she’s not scripted.

Bai Ling appeared fully dressed, to the dismay of the Fuggers, no doubt. Baron Clement von Franckenstein confided that he’s a wee bit tired of explaining the family name, but he’s a good sport.

Ivanka Trump Collects Weirdos and Losers, aka Andy Dick, George Gurley

andyivanka3.jpg

What is it about the Ivanka? Page 6 is reporting that Andy Dick was all over her at a recent Jimmy Kimmel Live taping. She told the tabloid:

I think he’s a comic genius, but he seems to have a few issues…He was in an incapacitated state.

When is he not? And GlossedOver posts about writer George Gurley’s porn prose piece in Marie Claire. Gurley wrote:

Ivanka, the vice president of real-estate development and acquisitions for the Trump Organization, impeccably groomed and straining the buttons of her red shirtdress, picks up a fat stack of papers and slams them onto her desk.

Glistening orbs, anyone? You can practically hear the aptly-named Gurley begging to be body-slammed onto the carpet.
