Yahoo! Launches New Comedy Shows

Now: Your Daily Dose of Celebrity News

The new Yahoo! comedy lineup has stars, spoofs, and outrageous moments.

In "7 Minutes in Heaven", "Saturday Night Live" writer Mike O'Brien gets up close -- extremely, uncomfortably up close -- to A-list actors for shockingly hilarious interviews. As it turns out, you learn quite a lot about celebrities when they're asked outrageous questions while trapped inside a small closet and later forced to kiss you. Recent captors include Paul Rudd, Kristen Wiig, and Fred Armisen.

In the new episode of the comedy short series "Sketchy," the imminent movie sensation "The Hunger Games" comically collides with the world of competitive eating. Indeed, you read that sentence correctly.

The scripted original "First Dates With Toby Harris" follows a man's painful romantic blunders from an awkward phone call to Red Lobster and beyond.

Also in the family: The long-running, popular Yahoo! show "Odd News," the Greg Proops-hosted roundup of the bizarre viral videos and headlines we're snorting at.

Two shows coming soon:
"Hackerazzi" skewers politicians and celebrities in outlandish cartoons they may not always approve of. Just let us worry about that.

And from Ben Stiller's production company, "Burning Love" is a "Bachelor" parody starring Ken Marino, Malin Akerman, Kristen Bell, Michael Ian Black, Ken Jeong, and Adam Scott. Perfect for the freakish hybrid fan of comedy and reality TV, the show gives viewers a front-row seat to the champagne toasts, candles, heartbreak, bubble baths, chocolate, choreography, hair extensions, roller skating, betrayal, spray tans, and rainbows in the most romantic, comedic Web series ever made.
