In the badass business called "show," the toughest gig is probably 4 hours of live radio every day of the week. You can put live comedy right up alongside radio. The men and women with the balls to lead either of those two lunatic lives deserve gold medals.
Only a few amazing souls make it to another death-defying gig, as host of their own late night show.
More than enough has been written and said about Leno and Conan. There's never enough said about Jimmy Kimmel.
Jimmy Kimmel Live is the best late night show on television. He consistently proves it all night - every night. Whenever Jimmy attacks the art form of video shorts, he blows us away.
Please njoy nshare this latest masterpiece:
"IMPREGN8ED" by Tray-Mo featuring Lil' Jim.
Fox has chosen us as one of their premium distribution partners for
original web series they've produced, and we plan to start developing and
producing original new series together as well.
Our new best friends at 15 Gigs said way too many nice things. Rachel
Webber, Director of Digital Strategy and Development at Fox Television Studios said:
"We've been huge fans of My Damn Channel and we couldn't be more excited
to get this partnership going. We love the My Damn Channel audience and
are eager to hear what they think of our shows. It's an honor to be
standing beside the likes of 'Easy to Assemble,' 'You Suck at Photoshop' and
'Wainy Days,' and we're very happy to be bringing the talent we work with
-- especially Drama 3/4, creators of Iceman Chronicles -- into this mix."
My Damn Channel Founder/CEO, Rob Barnett says, "THANK YOU. We take our
partnerships seriously. We've always been insanely selective about finding the
best people and the best series to bring to our audience. 'The Iceman
Chronicles' is the first of a lot more goodness we have up our collective
sleeves. We're excited to have Fox in the family."
We're launching today with a series called, "The Iceman Chronicles."
Think 'Twin Peaks' - with more murder - but
funny. It's a dark comedy that follows coroner/veterinarian Russell Coldpalm
(played by David Fickas) as he navigates the sins and secrets of Blythe, Arizona.
Coldpalm and a motley cast of locals discover horrible truths through a series
of comedic twists on the hunt for a mysterious serial killer...the Iceman. The
show comes from Drama 3/4, the creative minds behind MSN's "Mr. Robinson's
Driving School," VH1's "I Hate My
30's," and web shows including "Anakin Auditions" and "No
Football for Old Men."
OK. Stop reading about this love fest and watch the first 2 episodes with new
shows rolling out every Thursday.
On Valentine's Day, a bunch of folks from the My Damn Channel family went on a special date with our favorite gal pals, GraceNMichelle.
Pictured above left: (L-R) Kevin Flynn ("Puca"), Joshua Nicholson ("MRJOTZ"), Anthony Willingham ("Calvin Bentington"), KT Pierce ("Harvey Potato"/"ktgilead"), and James Dunne ("smokybanjo").
All other pictures: Grace Helbig (from My Damn Channel's Daily Grace) and Michelle Vargas nerding it up at The People's Imrpov Theater during their Valentine's Day comedy sketch show: 2 Girls 1 CUPid.
Not pictured, our twitter/facebook lady, Armeni Kamciyan, also came down to watch the girls shake their booties and put on a performance to steal (and eventually melt) all of our evil/cold hearts.
Just in case you missed the news, Puca and Smokybanjo flew all the way from Ireland to meet everyone and they had no idea what they were in for at Sunday night's show.
They sat in their seats, innocently watching while the girls paraded
around on stage drooling over their fictitious love interests, "Ross
and Ryan" - who, consequently, ended up being the lucky Puca &
Smokybanjo. They didn't even have to worry about memorizing any lines
to play the part - they were handed tiny pieces of paper (shaped like
little red hearts). It went something like this:
Grace: Do you love us?
Ross & Ryan: No.
Michelle: Why don't you love us?
Ross & Ryan: Because we love each other!
(The crowd roars with laughter)
That was a tough one to make the boys say out loud...
Keep up with GraceNMichelle, and maybe you'll bump into one of us at their next show...

It's snowing outside and New York City has issued a Blizzard Warning and is shutting down schools, day cares, some businesses, and many restaurants.
All of us over at My Damn Channel are all alone in our homes today (missing each other terribly), but staying in touch via the magical world of the Internet.
Two of the crew sent in photos (above) of the snow along with a very special photo of what might be MDC's new mascot (move over sloth).
If you live in NYC, stay inside - unless you're throwing snowballs, stay warm, and check out the brand new uncovered footage of Spärhusen - filmed just 3 weeks before their tragic plane crash.

Mardi Gras is here (Jan 30 - Feb 16) and The Saints won the Super Bowl. Mitch Landrieu is the mayor of New Orleans and all seems right in the world.
To celebrate, My Damn Channel threw a Mardi Gras party that was inevitably crashed by our own Grace Helbig and Dave Ahdoot (and ended up being WAY more fun than we intended). Look out for an all new Grace Crashers - presented by Southern Comfort - coming soon!
That's not all - we were paid a surprise visit by two very special My Damn Channel viewsers (Smokybanjo & Puca) who came all the way from Ireland to join in on the fun.
We don't care what that groundhog said last week, Spring is soooo on the way.
January 30th kicked off the first night of Mardi Gras 2010 and our own Harry Shearer became King of New Orleans - appointed by Captain of

My Damn Channel is doing its part to educate America's curious and lost youth: taking on several stupendous interns to edify the inner workings and secrets behind creating the World's Greatest Website and content. (All for the price of a smile.)
But first, as they say: they need to learn how to flush The Toilet.
I sure hope they can get this part right. It seems... somehow.. significant. Like texting 'Haiti' to the Red Cross, or making Daily Grace a part of your morning routine, or learning that no matter how 'magical' coconut water is, it's not worth the nauseating flavor going down...
