Comedians make people laugh.  That’s what they were born to do.  But to spite what people think that’s not all they can do.  This week we look at comedians who have decided to branch out and doing things beyond the comedy world.  Are they damaged by their funny reputation?  What can they do to be taken seriously? Has anyone really ever pulled it off?

Plus, the dog pound returns, Charlie Sheen may eventually stop annoying everyone and has Adam Sandler finally used up all his Happy Gilmore funny chips?

Plus plus, we discuss our upcoming hiatus.

Plus we look at the impact of SNL losing Andy Samberg, discuss if anyone will watch the Fraggle Rock movie and encourage everyone to read the new book Tasteful Nudes by friend of the show Dave Hill.
