The 13th annual Los Angeles Jewish Film Festival will begin on Wednesday, April 25, 2018 and conclude on Wednesday, May 2nd with films from around the world celebrating the Jewish experience.

The opening night begins with a Bar Mitzvah or 13th year, style party and a tribute to Sammy Davis Jr. with the premiere of a new documentary Sammy Davis Jr. — I Gotta Be Me, an amazing Documentary made for American Masters which I was elated to see when it premiered at the Toronto Film Festival. Sammy Davis Jr. was the ultimate performer. His worldview was unique and self made just as he was. It did not conform to the liberal “style” of the time, but it was not conservative either.

Pajiba After Dark 5/5/11

  • Pajiba
Happy Cinco de Mayo! Today we celebrate the brilliance of Corona's marketing team in discerning that Americans are extremely fond of cultural holidays that we perceive to be centered around drinking themed alcohol (see: St.Patrick's Day) and that any excuse to eat nachos is a good one. It sends a clear and coherent message to other cultures that we will adopt your fun holidays with glee but god forbid you ever try to move here. I do not yet have a comically oversized margarita in my hand, but as I'm writing this it's not even 2:30pm, so it's only a matter of time. Of course, if you're not in a celebratory mood, it appears that the Thursday night shows are new and where they're supposed to be for like, the second week in a row now which shouldn't be remarkable but unfortunately is.

Listen, dear readers, I'm going to level with you: I have a headache, I still have to pack for my train ride tomorrow and find knitting supplies to keep myself busy for the 17 hours I'll be spending on said train, and it's been a long week already. I will make up for the lack of introduction at a later date. Here's your Wednesday night TV:

8:00pm: "Human Target" on Fox

"Christmas with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir featuring Natalie Cole and David McCullough" on PBS

"The Sing-Off" on NBC

"Survivor" on CBS

9:00pm: "Criminal Minds" on CBS

Comics' Fun Nights On Road

Tim Reid and Tom Dreesen had some very odd moments as one of America's first interracial comedy teams. In their new autobiography, "Tim & Tom," Reid, who played deejay Venus Flytrap on "Wkrp in Cincinnati," and Dreesen, a "Tonight Show" and David Letterman regular, say they routinely shared rooms on the road to save money. "Once we showed up at a cheap motel in Missouri at three o'clock in the morning and had to wake the desk clerk up," they write. "All of sudden,

Letterman Spends Christmas in Iraq

  • WENN
American chat show host David Letterman spent Christmas in Iraq on a top-secret mission to entertain US troops stationed there. The Late Show presenter thrilled thousands of Marines on Friday night by staging a live version of his popular late night program at Camp Taqaddum. Letterman opened the show by joking, "Anybody here from out of town?" Late Show regulars Paul Shaffer and Biff Henderson and funnyman Tom Dreesen joined Letterman for the trip. The TV star concluded his show by telling his audience, "Paul (Shaffer) and I were in Afghanistan three years ago, and last year we were in Baghdad. We wouldn't want it any other way. We're sorry we keep having to come back."
