Well, this one is simply a delight. Last week, Andy Richter and Reggie Watts used their improvisational gifts to great effect on Minnesota Public Radio's show "Wits," one of the rare public radio comedy shows that's actually funny -- even to listeners who don't think a New York Times reference is a good substitute for a joke.
On the episode, Richter is given the name of several fake new TV shows ("Mummy Town," "Would You Like Meat With That?") by host John Moe, and Richter makes up the plot of the show on the spot. Watts also throws in a theme song for the show using only a keyboard, his mouth and a loop machine.
You'll want to watch this whole video, as it shows two improv masters doing what they do best. Richter first made his name in the Chicago improv comedy scene in the '80s and '90s before moving to New York to become Conan O'Brien's sidekick on "Late Night," a job he left briefly but continues to this day on O'Brien's TBS show.
While Watts' background is in music and not acting, over the last few years he's become a favorite of audiences across the country for an musical comedy act that's almost entirely made up onstage. His talents will soon be seen on IFC's upcoming off-kilter talk show, "Comedy Bang! Bang!", as the show's "one-man bandleader."
The entire episode of "Wits," which also features Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett of "Mystery Science Theater 3000," can be found on MPR's website.

Get ready to see Nicole Kidman and Clive Owen as the power couple of the 1930s on HBO.
The trailer for "Hemingway & Gellhorn" (airing Mon., May 28 on HBO) has been released, starring Kidman as journalist Martha Gellhorn and Owen as author Ernest Hemingway. The film tells the story of the couple who, after meeting in a bar in Florida, fall in love and head to Spain to report on the Spanish Civil War.
"Have you ever tried to get in a war zone?" Hemingway asks Gellhorn in the action-packed trailer. "I'm resourceful," she responds confidently.
Hemingway and Gellhorn had a famously tumultuous relationship -- their marriage only lasted five years, and it inspired Hemingway's novel "For Whom The Bell Tolls" -- and Owen and Kidman recently talked to W magazine about playing the historical figures ... and about their sex scenes.
"The sexual attraction between them was powerful," Kidman told W. "I kept asking Phil Kaufman, the director, 'Is all this sex important for the story?' I wanted to make sure he wasn't just getting off. But these were two people who could make love when a building was falling down around them. They had passion."
Owen agreed. "Sex scenes are only hard if there’s no narrative conveyed through the sex scene. In the Hemingway film, the sex scenes have a story going through them," he told W. "It’s part of who these people are and what they are."
"Hemingway & Gellhorn" airs on Monday, May 28 on HBO.
"The View" roundtable went wild on Tuesday when guest host Regis Philbin and the ladies discussed male and female bikini waxing preferences.
During the show's Hot Topics segment, co-host Whoopi Goldberg reported that more and more men were getting "bikini waxes, trims, and other 'man-scaping' in that area." Co-host Joy Behar added to the conversation, saying that waxing places offered other features as well. "They will put rhinestones on a man's penis," Behar said. The table turned to Philbin and asked if this was something in which he might be interested.
"Not a big rhinestone! A little one for Regis," he said. "So we could see it in the dark!" Behar joked.
As the discussion on 'man-scaping' continued, Goldberg said that she understood why men might get rid of some hair. "But a hairless man is like a hairless dog. I don't want to see that," Goldberg quipped. She shared the same thoughts on women who wax. "This thing that we do now when we make everybody into little babies," she said. "I don't like this."
"Well they have this other thing where they cut some of it and you look like you have Hitler's mustache," Behar added.
The audience exploded with laughter, as did all the "View" co-hosts. "I'm getting nervous!" Philbin yelled.
Co-host Sherri Shepherd summed it all up. "Regis," she said. "I bet you miss Kelly now, don't you?!"

What's better than one Michael Fassbender? How about multiple Michael Fassbenders playing chess with each other? A few Fassbender clones make appearances is this new viral video for Prometheus, but it's not hot so much as it is creepy. We've already seen a trailer for the film, but this video puts a spin on what we had assumed. In the clip, Fassbender stars as a hyper advanced robot named David, and he's being interviewed about his various skills. In this universe, it appears robots are able to do almost anything a human can do, including understand emotions like sadness and gratitude.
When I saw that first trailer, I assumed Fassbender and his cohorts were of the human species, but now I'm not sure what to think. Are the robots or are these androids from another region? Ridley Scott's Alien franchise seems well suited for viral marketing, and this teaser gives out just enough information to get audiences intrigued. Weyland Industries, the company in the clip, even has its own website to explore. You'll have to wait until June 8 to see the movie, but you can watch the video when youread more
