Backstage at the Comedy Awards: Eddie Murphy on 'wrong turns' like 'Pluto Nash'; Louis C.K. on his 'sh--y' night

Hey Rob Corddry, what do you think about having comedians honor comedians?

“They should do that! I think that’s a great idea,” the former Daily Show correspondent told EW at the Comedy Awards. “Just get a bunch of comedians together in black tie.” Okay, somebody’s either being really snarky or hasn’t been paying attention, since Comedy Central’s first annual awards were just that — with Corddry himself picking up the Golden Microphone for Best Sketch Comedy/Alternative Comedy Series (Childrens’ Hospital).

EW caught up with a number of the winners and presenters backstage at New York City’s Hammerstein Ballroom, and, needless to say, others were more direct regarding how they felt about the evening. Like Louis C.K., who elaborated on his acceptance speech for Best Stand-Up Special (Louis C.K.: Hilarious), in which he declared the gala to be “the s—-iest night of my life.” “You know, I’m just exaggerating,” C.K. clarified. “But, yeah, pretty s—-y.” READ FULL STORY

The Comedy Awards: Jon Stewart talks 'vestigial' ceremony, Anne Hathaway and James Franco's Oscar-hosting gig

What happens when you fill a ballroom with comedians in black tie? The Comedy Awards, of course! Comedy Central’s first annual celebration of funny people by funny people rolls out tonight across the Viacom-verse, simulcast at 9 p.m. EST on Comedy Central, Spike TV, CMT, TV Land, and VH1.

Considering how little awards recognition comedy gets — you can count on one hand the number of (non-musical) comedies that have won the Oscar for Best Picture — it’s exciting to see comic artists honored by their peers. And lest you think this is some meaningless, self-congratulatory, People’s Choice-style ceremony, check out some of the names on the board that determined the nominees: Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, Billy Crystal, Whoopi Goldberg, Seth MacFarlane, Conan O’Brien, Don Rickles, Joan Rivers, Chris Rock, and Ray Romano.

To get you psyched for the show, EW talked to Jon Stewart on the red carpet about what these awards mean to comedians and, well, if he thinks they’re even necessary. READ FULL STORY

Jimmy Fallon's FalPals deliver: Stephen Colbert to sing 'Friday'

Don’t ever underestimate the generosity of the American people when it comes to helping one late-night comedian force another late-night comedian to sing a 13-year-old girl’s song. On Monday night, Jimmy Fallon promised the world that if we could raise $26,000 for DonorsChoose.org, an online charity that gives money to schools in need, then his Best Friend For Six Months, Stephen Colbert would return on Friday to perform Rebecca Black’s “Friday” with the Roots.

Cha-ching. In less than 36 hours, the goal was reached. Fallon tweeted the news this morning, “Thank you, everyone!!! We did it!!! Stephen Colbert will (has to) sing “Friday” this Friday on our show!! Awesome!!” READ FULL STORY

Jon Cryer: 'I am a troll.'

Jon Cryer went on TBS’ Conan tonight to address comments his former Two and a Half Men costar Charlie Sheen recent made about him, namely that Cryer is, among other things, a “troll.” Although Cryer did recently appear on The Ellen DeGeneres Show as a receptionist because he “needed the work,” this marks the first time the actor has directly addressed the Sheen media maelstrom of the last two weeks. And frankly, his remarks are quite shocking. Check out the video below:  READ FULL STORY

CNN's Piers Morgan talks the royal wedding: 'I have connections that most American anchors can only dream of'

CNN anchor Piers Morgan is not worried about the ruthless competition for exclusives and access to the upcoming royal wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton. In fact, the native Brit thinks he has a leg up on his American colleagues. “I think the accent will be a major weapon for me,” says Morgan. EW chatted with the host of Piers Morgan Tonight about the media frenzy surrounding the wedding, his plan for coverage, and the wedding’s cultural impact.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: What’s your coverage plan?
PIERS MORGAN: The advantage that I have is that it’s obviously my hometown and I lived and worked in London for 25 years. I’ve also met and know quite well most of the royal family. I think it might be a homerun for CNN. READ FULL STORY

Jimmy Kimmel gets hot and sweaty with Minka Kelly -- PHOTO

As fans of Kimmel’s Handsome Men’s Club sketch from last year’s post-Oscar Jimmy Kimmel Live!, we were pretty stoked to get our hands on two photos (see them both embedded after the jump) from this year’s Academy Awards JKL lead-out, featuring new Charlie’s Angel Minka Kelly hanging out with Kimmel, who’s, ahem, letting it all hang out in a pair of short shorts. (You’ve got nothin’ on him, Richard Simmons!) Apparently, the sketch — which also features Jessica Alba, Kelly Ripa, and Eva Longoria — centers on Kimmel helping Hollywood’s hottest ladies get fit. You’ll have to stay tuned after the Oscars to find out what exactly Kelly and Kimmel do while getting physical, but we can offer you some scoop: Kimmel’s guest for the post-Oscar show will be none other than two-time Oscar winner Tom Hanks. Maybe Robert Langdon can us decipher Kimmel’s top-secret sketch! READ FULL STORY

Is David Letterman retiring? 'There's [been] no discussion about his leaving,' says producer Rob Burnett

Howard-Stern-LettermanOh, CBS, how tricky you are: Though a clip of David Letterman’s Late Show interview with Howard Stern — in which the shock jock dissed Leno — has been running rampant throughout the Web today, it was cut short before Letterman told Stern that he would only be hosting the show for a couple more years. Before long, fans who watched the show live last night took the the Internets, wondering if that meant retirement was in Letterman’s future.

As Rob Burnett — CEO of Worldwide Pants and executive producer of Late Show — tells EW, don’t count on it. “I think the first time Dave said he was going to leave in two years was back in 1987,” Burnett says. READ FULL STORY

'SNL' exclusive promo photo: Jim Carrey loves you, Studio 8H

SNL-Jim-Carey-WiggImage Credit: Dana Edelson/NBCWhy are Saturday Night Live host Jim Carrey, Kristen Wiig, and musical guests The Black Keys laughing in this exclusive promo photo for this Saturday’s episode? I’d like to think it’s because someone’s headed over with two jean jackets to help Wiig and Dan Auerbach complete the Canadian Tuxedo look. Seriously, they were two-thirds of the way there! Massive lapse in judgment not completing that look, guys.

Who’s psyched for this Saturday’s show — and secretly hoping Carrey talks out of his butt, Ace Ventura-style?
