It's not fair to reduce Jim Gaffigan's comedy down to "clean," and this special proves he's one our most intelligent observational humorists.
When Jim Gaffigan is described as a “clean,” it can’t help but feel like a bit of an insult. Yes, Gaffigan largely avoids swear words or sexual references in his act, but to call what he does “clean comedy”—the Netflix synopsis for his new special, Cinco, calls him the “king” of the stuff—it’s like

Plus: Please pay attention to the Atlanta Falcons.
Block & Tackle is John Teti’s column about pro football.The final quarter of Packers-Cowboys broke the dreary pall of the 2017 NFL Playoffs, although this game looked like a blowout at first. The Packers opened the game by scoring thousands of touchdowns, maybe even hundreds. Green Bay quarterba

These are good times for anyone who enjoys the caustic, often scathing, yet fundamentally humane comedy of Massachusetts-born funnyman Bill Burr.
A new Bill Burr stand-up special debuts on Netflix at the end of January. And this one was recorded in one of the scared temples of country music.

"The reason 'The Reptile Room: Part Two' works as well as it does (and I think it’s the best episode since the first) is that it spends most of its running time with a relatively simple premise."
At its heart, A Series Of Unfortunate Events is the story of three children discovering their resourcefulness and strength in the face of almost unimaginable adversity, a phrase which here means “an evil man who likes to put on silly costumes and murder people.” Yes there is a secret organization; y

Even though it feels like a decade has passed since she was all “hello, it’s me,” 25 and “Hello” are up for awards this year.
Ten-time Grammy winner Adele has been added to the performance roster for the 59th Annual Grammy Awards, which will air on February 12. She will perform a song from her 2015 album, 25, which bizarrely missed the deadline to qualify for the 2016 Grammys. So even though it feels like a decade has pass

It still serves as a sharply etched portrait of implicit racial bias, ’60s style. Or today-style.

Trump prefers a musical lineup that’s more “typically and traditionally American.”
It’s fun to think back on a simpler time when Kanye West announcing he was going to run for president in 2020 felt like a fun novelty and not a harbinger of a fundamental shift in American politics.

Louis CK’s simple premise contains in it the larger, darker resonance of seeing capitalism’s horrors through the eyes of a child.
Part of the joy of watching Louis CK tell a joke is the way he tells the joke: effortlessly, as if you happened to be sitting across a diner table with him rather than in the middle of a massive arena. Such breeziness is, of course, the result of decades of hard work; each joke builds and then lands

A ton of celebrities, and also a bunch of normal human beings all pop in to describe their most memorable moments of the Obama years.
President Barack Obama has ended his presidential term with the same sense of grace and pop-cultural largesse that he entered it. This is no small feat, given that he was ushered into the office on a tide of global optimism. But he leaves with high approval ratings, a handful of major accomplishment

For the pop culture obsessed by pop culture obsessives.
Introduction
The A.V. Club is an entertainment website published by The Onion

Back in olden times, a school’s audiovisual club would be composed of a bunch of geeks who actually knew how to run the filmstrip and film projectors, and were typically deeply involved in things like audio fidelity and newfangled speakers. We’re proud to carry on the tradition of people immersed in pop culture and entertainment media to a somewhat obsessive degree.
