Milonakis hearts Apatow - VIDEOS

by Adam Finley, posted Aug 5th 2007 2:03PM

andy milonakisThe video at the end of this post has a lot of swearing, so if that's not your thang, watch this instead.

We all know that Judd Apatow (Freaks and Geeks, Undeclared, Forty Year Old Virgin, Knocked Up) is a man who can do no wrong and who deserves our respect, adulation and fawning worship. However, no one has ever expressed his love for the man quite like Andy Milonakis (The Andy Milonakis Show).

Check out this damn channel that launched today

by Bob Sassone, posted Jul 31st 2007 2:23PM

Harry ShearerDid you know that online video is popular? It's true! Everybody's doing it. Well, I doubt Bea Arthur is doing online video, but still...

Today, MyDamnChannel.com launched. It's a new online video channel put together by some big celebs, including Harry Shearer (The Simpsons), David Wain (Stella, the new movie The Ten), and music producer Don Was. It was created by former CBS Radio and MTV exec Rob Barnett.

As with any new launch, the content is hit or miss, but there's a surprising number of videos here, including several from Shearer and Wain and a couple from web video icon Andy Milonakis. You need Flash 9 to view the videos.

Andy Milonakis has a serious problem - VIDEO

by Adam Finley, posted Jul 7th 2007 8:35AM

andy milonakisI'm not always floored by what springs from the mind of Andy Milonakis, who, according to TMZ, recently gave a homeless guy a buck, but I like that he does his own thing and stays true to himself.

Before I joined the TV Squadders and before he had his show on MTV2 (The Andy Milonakis Show), I did a phone interview with the youthful-looking Milonakis (he's 31 now) about the Web videos he had been making that had caught the eye of Jimmy Kimmel and led to his deal at MTV. Back then, his humor didn't always hit, but when it did, I found it hilarious. And, even when it landed with a thud, I had to admire him for trying something different. Also, Andy and I are the same age and both seem to have a penchant for the absurd, so I was pretty much tuned in to his wavelength from the beginning.

Andy returns, and he's funnier

by Adam Finley, posted Mar 29th 2007 9:02AM

andy milonakisI've said before I'm kind of an intermittent fan of the Andy Milonakis Show, but after seeing the season three premiere in which Andy first arrives in Los Angeles, I have to say that the show has improved greatly. If you hated Andy before, you'll probably still hate him, since his brand of humor isn't for everyone, but I was pleasantly surprised at how much more fully realized the show now seems. The first season had some very funny moments, but it seemed to lack focus, as if it wasn't sure what it was trying to be. I think both Andy and his show have finally found themselves, and Milonakis may have figured out a way to turn his penchant for oddball non sequiturs and general nonsense into real, honest to goodness comedy. Our little weirdo has finally become a butterfly, with peanut butter on his hands ("peanut butter slap")!

The six season three episodes are available on iTunes and will also be made available on MTV2.com and MTV.com.

Andy Milonakis returns in 2007

by Adam Finley, posted Oct 2nd 2006 2:11PM
andy milonakisOkay, MTV2, you've decided to bring back The Andy Milonakis Show for a third season. That just leaves me with one question: are you also going to bring back Wonder Showzen? Because if you don't bring back Wonder Showzen, I will have no choice but to -- well, I guess I can't really do anything, but I'll be really, really sad and I may misdirect my anger and frustration and beat a squirrel with a tennis racket. Do you really want that on your conscience? Sorry, I'm getting off the subject, aren't I? Anyway, The Andy Milonakis Show is in fact returning with six new episodes in 2007. Fans should rejoice, and non-fans should, I don't know, go make themselves a sandwich or something. I'm kind of a non-committal, intermittent fan of the show. Out of all the shows on television, this is probably the one I'm the most wishy-washy about.

Milonakis' phat rhymes

by Adam Finley, posted Apr 19th 2006 9:59AM
andy milonakisThe Andy Milonakis Show is currently in its second season on MTV2,  but a lot of us knew about Andy before he was on television, when he used to create little skits on his Web cam and ad lib his own rap songs over on the Angry Naked Pat site. When I spoke to Andy a few years ago he said he was interested in making an album of comedy rap songs, and it looks like the first song has been "leaked" (but not really) and you can hear it by clicking here. It's called "Me No Like Hollywood Douche Bags," and Andy uses the song to state with great clarity his dislike of douche bags from Hollywood. I assume douche bags from Sacramento are okay, though. The song is mildly amusing until he seems to run out of ideas and just starts saying "suck my ***k" a lot. I think this could be turned into a funny video, but as an audio file only it's a bit of a let down, even if I do agree with the sentiment.

MTV2 and YouTube strike deal

by Adam Finley, posted Mar 3rd 2006 1:28PM
andy milonakisIt looks like MTV2 gets it. YouTube, the popular video download site that has been embraced by Web users and scorned by some in the television industry, has signed its first formal deal with MTV2. The network has already began to toss up clips on the site for The Andy Milonakis Show and Wonder Showzen. There are still plenty of clips on YouTube that violate copyright, despite the efforts of networks like NBC and CBS to have clips taken down. Here's hoping the site forges more partnerships like this one and other networks start to understand what a great method of promotion this can be.

Hide your pancakes, Andy is coming back

by Adam Finley, posted Mar 3rd 2006 11:09AM

andy milonakisAndy Milonakis fans can now rejoice, and those who loathe him can... not rejoice, I guess. The Andy Milonakis Show is coming back to MTV2 for a second season, so we can expect to see more crazy hijinks, angry people on the street, and whatever surreal nonsense Andy can come up with. The new season will kick off on March 31 as part of MTV2's "Sic 'Em Friday" lineup. The new season will correspond with the DVD release of the first season.

Best and Worst of 2005: Annie's List

by Annie Wu, posted Jan 6th 2006 1:08PM
Stephen ColbertThe Best:
1. My Name is Earl: I didn't think this was going to be any good when I first saw the commercials because it looked like another stupid sitcom about -- whoo-hoo -- rednecks. Jason Lee's a cool cat, though, so I tuned in for one episode... Boy, am I glad I saw it! Although Lee doesn't disappoint, Jaime Pressly's performance is absolutely hysterical and often steals the show. Definitely one of my favorite programs of the year.

2. The Daily Show: I've loved it. Sill love it.

3. The Colbert Report: I was a little worried about this show in the beginning, but quickly grew to love it. Stephen Colbert's got a good thing going on right now and I'm definitely looking forward to more.

4. Lost: I love it when a show/film has a strong ensemble cast. That plus deep, conflicted backstory and tremendous writing is must-see TV for me.

5. Project Runway: Okay, they're only a few episodes in, but Project Runway never fails to deliver. Classiest reality show, hands-down.

Andy Milonakis coming to DVD

by Adam Finley, posted Jan 2nd 2006 11:03AM
andy milonakisEither you love him or you want to set him on fire and back over his head with a tractor, but you can't not have an opinion about Andy Milonakis. I count myself as one of the those who enjoyed The Andy Milonakis Show, though I hasten to add that while I found some of the sketches to be hilarious, it was by no means flawless. Milonakis has a natural comedic talent, but I think being able to tell the difference between "ad libbing" and "just saying random things" would help his comedy tremendously. At any rate, TV Shows on DVD reported earlier last month that the first season of Andy's show will come out on DVD in March. It's amusement and annoyance in convenient disc form.
