Will Ferrell’s Ron Burgundy Returns With A New Podcast

Even though it’s been nearly five years since Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues hit theaters, we’ll still be getting some more Ron Burgundy in the future. Will Ferrell is bringing back his Anchorman character for a new podcast: The Ron Burgundy Podcast.

The podcast will play into the characters… antiquated views, while he still fancies himself a hard-hitting journalist ready to tackle a new audience with a podcast. Even if he isn’t quite sure what a podcast is. At any rate, it’s Will Ferrell running wild with one of his most beloved characters.

The Ron Burgundy Podcast will premiere on February 7 on theiHeartPodcast Network, with new episodes dropping every Thursday.

Netflix Releases 100% Fresh Trailer For New Adam Sandler Special

Netflix released the trailer for Adam Sandler’s first stand-up comedy special in 14 years, 100% Fresh.

Directed by Steven Brill in his eighth collaboration with Sandler following Going Overboard, Little Nicky, Mr. Deeds, The Wedding Singer, Big Daddy, Sandy Wexler and The Do-Over, the comedy special sees the 52-year-old actor taking his jokes and music on the road to various venues including comedy clubs, concert halls and even an unsuspecting subway platform.

Sandler’s Happy Madison and Netflix have worked together on four previous projects including films The Ridiculous 6, Sandy Wexler, The Do-Over and The Week Of, the latter of which were the highest-reviewed of their collaborations. He also starred in the Noah Baumbach film The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected) for Netflix.

He most recently starred in the third entry in the hit family franchise Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation, and is currently working on the next Netflix collaboration Murder Mystery, which is a reunion of Sandler and Jennifer Aniston following their 2011 hit rom-com Just Go With It.

Adam Sandler: 100% Fresh will debut on Netflix on October 23.

Robin Williams Mural 

A mural honoring the late Robin Williams has been painted in his hometown, and serves as a powerful reminder about seeking help during suicide prevention month.

The painting of Williams, who was born in Chicago, surrounded by his iconic Disney character, the Genie from “Aladdin,” was erected on the side of the Concord Music Hall in The Windy City. The project is a collaboration between local street artists, and appears to serve as a juxtaposition between the entertaining characters that Williams created, and the pain he suffered quietly on the inside.

September is suicide prevention awareness month, and it’s been over four years since Williams committed suicide at his home at the age of 63.

Team Coco Presents Conan & Friends: An Evening Of Stand-Up And Investment Tips

Conan O’Brien will hit the road for the first time since 2010 when he begins his Team Coco Presents Conan & Friends: An Evening of Stand-Up and Investment Tips tour in Washington, D.C. on Friday, November 2. O’Brien will be joined by different groups of handpicked comics each night of the tour, bringing his unique comic sensibility and the voices of some of his favorite performers to venues all over the United States. 

The comedians featured on Team Coco Presents Conan & Friends: An Evening of Stand-Up and Investment Tips have all worked closely with Team Coco over the years. From former and current CONAN writers to comedians who host monthly Los Angeles comedy shows with Team Coco, to CONAN: Without Borders travel partners, the tour will give fans a glimpse of the comedy ecosystem Team Coco continues to expand across all mediums, including a growing digital studio, merchandise, and many other new lines of business. 

The tour will feature O’Brien along with performances from Rory Scovel (I Feel Pretty), Deon Cole (Barbershop, Black-ish), Ron Funches (Curb Your Enthusiasm, Black-ish), Laurie Kilmartin (Conan, Last Comic Standing), Taylor Tomlinson (Netflix’s The Comedy Lineup), Marina Franklin (HBO’s Crashing), James Veitch (Conan), Moses Storm (Father of the Year), and Flula Borg (Pitch Perfect 2, Curb Your Enthusiasm). 

O’Brien added, “There are a lot of exciting changes coming up for me in 2019 and I wanted to kick it off this fall with an 18-city live tour. The idea that I hit the road for seven weeks was pitched by my wife, with the full backing of my children.” 

Building on the promise of a recently announced joint venture with Turner, Team Coco Presents Conan & Friends: An Evening of Stand-Up and Investment Tips, will advance Team Coco’s philosophy of bringing comedy everywhere. The multi-city tour will allow O’Brien to intimately reconnect and interact with his passionate fanbase as he gears up for a leaner, more agile 30-minute show on TBS premiering January 2019. The tour, like the new format, gives O’Brien the flexibility to experiment and have fun with his audience in new ways. 

Samuel Adams will serve as a partner of the tour to help fans experience a world of comedy across all platforms. The brand’s sponsorship will span TV, digital, social and on-the-ground activations. As a local Beantown brew, Samuel Adams will also bring two special shows to Boston, and take Conan O’Brien along for a trip to the Boston Brewery in one of the show’s iconic custom remotes.
