Though the forecast called for rain on June 3rd in the skies over Manhattan, the Gods of Metal and Rock persuaded Thor to stay his hammer so the IFC could host the America’s Hottest Rocker Mom contest in Madison Square Park, NYC.

After receiving hundreds of worthy submissions, the five finalists chosen were Kat Everson from Beverly Hills, CA; Natalie Hawkins of Conroe, TX; Shawna Owens from Cadalle, MI; Debra Diamant of Los Angeles, CA and Valerie Nerres from Las Vegas, NV.

The event was a spectacle to behold. The distinguished panel of judges included stars Sebastian Bach, Constantine Maroulis, Bethenny Frankel from The Real Housewives of NYC and the stars of Z Rock; Paulie Z, David Z and Joey of ZO2.

Under the orchestrations of host Eddie Trunk, the finalists competed in four categories to determine who would claim the title. The Heavy Metal Moms were first judged on their Rocking Attire, then their knowledge of Rock Trivia, dance moves were the core of round three and the final challenge was a killer round of Karaoke.

In the end it was City of Angel’s own Debra Diamant who took home the cash and the crown with a total score of 166 and the hearts (among other things) of all the judges. IFC’s congratulations go out to Debra and all the contestants for creating a stiff competition.

Check out the photo gallery for all the action and make sure to tune in to IFC on Sunday nights at 11 PM to check out the adventures of the ZO2 boys on the all-new Season 2 of Z Rock!

Nick Kroll and John Mulaney To Host Spirit Awards

The Spirit Awards Air February 25 LIVE on IFC.

Posted by on

The 2017 Spirit Awards have finally found their frontmen: Nick Kroll and John Mulaney. And it’s no wonder. Just marvel in their splendid chemistry back when they appeared on Comedy Bang! Bang!:

The pair are prolific within the performing arts community: television (Kroll in The League and The Kroll Show, Mulaney as a writer of IFC’s own Documentary Now!), theater (including Broadway’s current Oh Hello Show), and stand-up comedy. In fact, it’s entirely possible that emceeing an awards show is one of the few remaining line items on their professional bucket lists.

It’s important to caveat this announcement, however. Unlike the bigger and more ubiquitously known awards shows, the Spirit Awards are not, well…boring. (We’re talking to you, Oscar.)

They’re funny. They’re honest. They have quality to match the red-carpet fanfare. And that’s alarmingly special. Last year’s show included some legitimately historic moments, like when transgender actress Mya Taylor won best supporting female, or Kate McKinnon’s hilarious and timely parody of Carol. See more highlights here to get the flavor of the Spirit Awards and read all about Film Independent to dig deeper.

The 2017 Spirit Awards air live February 25 at 5P ET exclusively on IFC.

Xmas Miracles You’ll See At Joe’s Pub

Joe’s Pub Presents: A Holiday Special Premieres December 21 at 10P on IFC.

Posted by on

It’s just so tempting to bah-humbug the holiday season. And while there’s much we can’t wait to put behind us, one thing left to look forward to with pure and wide-eyed joy is Joe’s Pub Presents: A Holiday Special, starring Tony Hale. It’s a celebration in the true spirit of those splendid TV specials from the ’70s and ’80s, complete with special guests, musical numbers, awkward segues and an (intentionally) wafer-thin narrative through line.

As if you need more convincing, here are a few juicy nuggets to get excited for…

Tony Hale plying the captive audience with hot chocolate (and it working).

Bridget Everett dressed like an ornament…

and in a state of nearly constant wardrobe malfunction.

Matteo Lane hitting a crazy high note in a Snuggie.

Not a Slanket. There’s a meaningful difference.

Lisa Loeb creeping on Kurt Vile.

and it pretty much going as expected.

Bottom line: the miracles abound. Grinches, Scrooges, and Tiny Tims alike will find their Holiday joy. And it’ll be awkward–in the most wonderful kind of way.
