Posted by on

This week on Bunk, our perpetually barefoot, but never pregnant host, Kurt Braunohler has a very serious and perhaps just a touch controversial task for this week’s game show contestants: comedians Alex Borstein (Family Guy), Ethan T. Berlin (Executive Producer of Bunk) and Jordan Klepper (Improvised Shakespeare). While in the past Kurt has had the contestants tackle objectively a-okay subjects such as improving the Last Supper, traumatizing children, crafting humpronyms, swapping dongs, slapping people, shaming puppies, and other family-friendly fun, tonight Bunk gets personal. This week, Bunk is going after grandma and there are no holds barred. Yeah, you read that right. There’s no subject that’s hands off on Bunk, not even grandma. And when grandma’s got a dirty little secret and the contestants have a song in their hearts, well, that’s just even more good clean fun.

Watch the contestants sing about nana’s secrets and be sure to tune in to an all new episode of Bunk tonight at 10:30 p.m. ET:

Watching hapless victims running for their lives might not sound romantic, but a scary movie is perfect for a cozy night on the couch with someone special. (Unless you’re a character in a horror movie, as any romantic moment eventually turns into murderous mayhem.) Before you catch My Bloody Valentine this Valentine’s Day on IFC, check out some horror movies that will both warm your heart and chill your bones.

1. Let The Right One In

lettherightoneine

A surprisingly touching tale of a bullied child and his vampire crush, the acclaimed 2008 Swedish horror film perfectly captures the feelings of being in the throes of naive first live. Pair it with the solid 2010 American remake, and be sure to have some tissues on hand to go with the blood red wine and dark chocolates.


2. Bram Stoker’s Dracula

draculadance

Francis Ford Coppola’s 1992 take on Bram Stoker’s classic tale upped the lavish romanticism with an ageless, yet alluring, Dracula driven by a centuries spanning love. For better or worse, we wouldn’t have Twilight without this sumptuous gothic romance.


3. The Fly

The Fly

One of the greatest body horror movies of all time centers on the most doomed relationship you’ve ever seen. If you find Jeff Goldblum as attractive as Geena Davis does, well, we advise you to make the most of it early on before Cronenberg’s masterpiece mutilates him.


4. Bride of Chucky

Why can’t movie monsters find love? Because it’s literally horrifying. Luckily that’s the point in Bride of Chucky, where the murderous puppet finds a soulmate who shares his penchant for sharp objects. A high point in the series that spoofed its own silliness while still scaring the hell out of us.


5. Bride of Frankenstein

Bride of Frankenstein

Of course, there wouldn’t be a Bride of Chucky without the original movie monster romance. James Whale’s horror classic both introduced a new level of pathos to the Frankenstein story and gave us a lady monster for the ages.


6. Hellraiser

Lemarchand’s box first broke the barriers between life and death as part of a (deeply unromantic) love story. An unfaithful wife seduces and murders men to resurrect her dead lover, and when her daughter finds out things get gorily complicated.


7. A Chinese Ghost Story

A night in a haunted temple has a man falling in love with a beautiful ghost in this horror comedy from director Ching Siu-tung. Oh, and he has to save her spirit from an evil tree demon. We haven’t mentioned the swordsman or the gymnastic martial arts yet, but you’ll definitely enjoy them too.


8. Candyman

The creepy Candyman is looking for love, which is a hard sell when you’ve got a hook for a hand and are usually covered in bees. Oh, and you’re a revenge-fuelled murderous specter. Helen Lyle must deal with his romantic intentions as well as an unfaithful boyfriend, and it really doesn’t go well for anyone. You’d think it’d be nice to have someone who always comes when you call…


9. Warm Bodies

warmbodies

An unlikely love story between the living and the dead, Warm Bodies follows “R” as he grunts and groans his affection for the chief zombie-hunter’s daughter. No other story has ever so completely shown the healing power of love.


10. My Bloody Valentine

My Bloody Valentine stars the Grinch of the holiday, the murderous miner who has sworn that a small town should never again host a dance on that day. Of course a gang of sexy teens decide to ignore him. And of course he comes back, with wonderfully horrific results.

Five favorite Eddie Izzard comedy routines

Posted by on

Eddie Izzard is coming to IFC and we couldn’t be more excited. While Izzard is playing a brutal and cold-hearted crime lord in our upcoming comedy crime drama miniseries Bullet in the Face, we’ve known and loved him for years as a stand-up comedian. Izzard’s brand of humor is deliciously twisted, delightfully strange, and, like, us, slightly off. We could watch his “Dressed to Kill” and “Glorious” comedy specials over and over and truthfully, we have. So before Bullet in the Face we thought why not share some of our favorite moments from his stand-up routines? Good idea, right? Heck yeah.

Here are five of our favorite Eddie Izzard jokes:

1. Cake or Death

2. Evil Giraffe

3. Star Wars Cantina

4. Learning French

5. Brit vs. US Movies

Meet the cast of Bunk: Alex Borstein

Alex Borstein is coming to Bunk on Friday at 10:30 p.m. ET, so whatever you think you’re doing on Friday it better be that. The comedian is probably most well known for her voice overs, specifically her work as Lois on Family Guy. She’s also had stints on The Cleveland Show and Robot Chicken. Fans of The Gilmore Girls should recognize her as the harp player who really hated Michel. She’s also prime Comic Con material for her roles on Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and Power Rangers Zeo. She was a writer and voice actor for several other television shows, including Casper and Pinky and the Brain, before joining the cast of MADtv, where she stood out in a sea of funny people for her brilliant portrayals of daft characters including most famously Ms. Swan. But being a writer and actor isn’t enough for Alex Borstein. She also puts her talents on the comedy circuit and her laugh-out-loud stand up specials are weird, dirty, and downright hilarious. We can’t wait to see what she does on Bunk, but we know it will be great.

Here is Alex talking about greed as part of her the seven sins series:

We’ll let her explain this one herself:

Here she is on MadTV as Ms. Swan a.k.a. The Best:

And here’s Ms. Swan going to Starbucks:

Finally here she is on The Actor’s Studio (fancy!) talking about her role as Lois on Family Guy:
