Introducing the BuzzFeed Block on IFC

You may have noticed that here at IFC, we’re pretty fond of lists on our website. We like lists whether they are just for fun, like figuring out the 25 best TV roles for women or divining the 10 best ironic comedy remakes or whether the lists are purely educational, like our list of the 10 best movies for stoners. We just like lists. But we’re not experts. Everyone knows that when it comes to Internet lists, the folks over at BuzzFeed are the experts. Whether they are enumerating 30 Things Michelle Tanner Can Teach You About Dating Like A Grown-Up or 11 Beyoncé Quotes To Live By, when it comes to lists (and adorable cat videos), BuzzFeed knows what’s up.

However, while BuzzFeed may have the lists, we have one thing they don’t: Movies. Lots and lots of movies. But we’re no dummies like the guys who took 50 years to realize that peanut butter and chocolate go great together. We figured it out and we’re teaming up. Introducing the BuzzFeed Block. Each week, starting May 4th, BuzzFeed will craft a list and we’ll provide a movie for a double-team of awesomeness. To kick things off, BuzzFeed made a list of 17 Incredibly Awesome Movie Prosthetics (we bet you know where this is going) and we’re showing “Boogie Nights,” starring Mark Wahlberg and a scene-stealing prosthetic.

Check out the BuzzFeed Block schedule here and tune in for “Boogie Nights” on May 4th at 8/7c:

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.

Judah Friedlander getting replaced by a robot…

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.

Joe’s Pub Presents: A Holiday Special premieres Wednesday December 21 at 10p on IFC
