Sam Spadino first made headlines back in June when he interrupted a Duluth, Minnesota Trump rally. The 36-year-old reportedly held up a photo of the president with former friend and convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, whom Trump called a "terrific guy" in a 2002 New York Magazine interview. At the rally, Trump saw Spadino’s sign — which read "Who is Jeffrey Epstein?" — and proceeded to mock his man bun. "Go home to your mom, darling," he said. "Was that a man or a woman? Because he needs a haircut more than I do," Trump joked to a rowdy crowd as Spadino got escorted out. Watch this unfold below: Spadino was arrested on October 4 after protesting at another Trump rally in Rochester. Reports state that he repeatedly yelled "Dad!" and was escorted out of the arena by security (he later told the Duluth News Tribune that he "thought it’d be funny"). Rochester police took Spadino to Olmsted County Adult Detention Center where he … [Read more...] about 6 Things to know about Trump protester Sam Spadino

When Paul Reiser returned to standup comedy a few years ago, younger comics couldn’t figure him out. "All the younger comics would say, ‘Are you doing a special?’ I’d go no," said Reiser, 62. "‘What, are you getting ready for the Tonight Show or something?’ I said no. ‘Well, what the hell are you doing here? Why are you doing it?’ I would say, ‘I’m doing it just to do it.’ "The act of doing it, being out there in front of an audience of people, is really refreshing and exciting and fun. At this point, I feel pretty confident I can show up at the theater and know we’re going to have a good time." Reiser has a good track record of that.

I listen to the wildly influential podcast My Favorite Murder when I’m cleaning my room, I watch old episodes of Law and Order: SVU as I pump away on my basement treadmill, and sometimes I like to fall asleep to the dulcet tones of Karina Longworth waxing poetic about famous dead blondes. I devoured this spring’s buzziest book, I’ll Be Gone in the Dark, in a single, stressful evening.Like many American women, I’ve been fascinated by the looming specter of stranger danger since childhood. As soon as I realized I was a walking target for a certain kind of predator, I began to gather stories of dead girls. I wanted to know everything about these victims—maybe if I knew … [Read more...] about Why Do You Love Murder Shows? 10 Women (and a Guy Named Bill) Explain.
A sad basset hound staring from behind the steel bars of a fence, captioned “How it feels watching other states legalize weed.” Barney the Dinosaur destroying a city, topped by text reading “Utah be like Gosh-zilla.” Two thumbnail-size beer mugs: “How to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in Utah without getting a DUI.” These are a few of the memes found on Utah Satire, an often wickedly funny, sometimes offensive Facebook page that in its two years has amassed nearly 83,000 followers. No topic is untouchable: fry sauce, Tooele, lousy drivers, multilevel marketers, Provo, crazy weather, alcohol laws and, of course, Mormons. If you’ve just moved to the state, scrolling through Utah Satire is a good way of getting to know your new home — through what many native Utahns might see as eye-rolling stereotypes. But as the saying goes, a lot of stereotypes are funny because they’re true. “It was my own personal venting … [Read more...] about Utah Satire creator talks about his humor, his wife’s cancer and what he won’t joke about with Mormons
