Chris Tucker, 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno'Chris Tucker once traveled to Africa with then-President Bill Clinton. But it was his impression of the president that led to a lifelong friendship. An impression Clinton apparently forced Tucker to perform for foreign dignitaries, according to what he told Jay Leno on 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC).

Everyone who dabbled in comedy during the '90s had a Bill Clinton impression, and Clinton overheard Chris Tucker and Kevin Spacey doing theirs on this African trip. He absolutely loved it, asking them to do it for him constantly.

"It'd be in front of the president of Nigeria, and I'd be scared if I mess up I might go to jail in the country or something," Tucker said of when Clinton used to ask him to perform for other people.

Last Comic Standing: A roast and an ejection

Last Comic Standing(S04E06) One thing you can say about Season Four of Last Comic Standing is that it's full of surprises. The comics may not be all that funny, the editing may be choppy, the preliminary selections of comics may have been suspicious, and Anthony Clark may look like he's embalmed. But you can't deny that the comics being eliminated aren't the ones anyone expected to go so early. Unfortunately, the by-product of these surprises is a set of finalists (the set of comics that will perform live and have the viewing audience vote by phone, text, and web) that is a pretty uncompelling set of personalities and, for the most part, not very funny.

Last Comic Standing(S04E04) The twelve finalists move into the "house", which this year is the dry-docked luxury liner the Queen Mary, and the sniping begins. Actually, they didn't show all that much "house" stuff in this episode, which is probably a good idea. I mean, to be honest, I watch this show to see comedy, not to see people form alliances and yell at each other. But I guess this phase is necessary, else the competition phase would only be three weeks long.

The comedians are thrown together on the ship in combinations that maximize explosiveness and hilarity; big ol' Gabriel Iglesias and tiny Josh Blue are put on twin beds two inches apart. Explosive Roz and hormonal pregnant "broad" Stella are put in the same room. Stand back and let the wacky sparks fly.
