Will Smith has started a new show on Facebook called Will Smith’s Bucket List, in which he does things he has never done before. One of the scariest things Will Smith could think of was doing stand up comedy. He goes in front of people to sing and act but in front of a crowd with only a microphone brings fear to Will Smith. But he called upon the master, Dave Chappelle, to help write. Like everything else Will Smith does, it is pretty good for his first time.
There seems to be a never ending list of reboots but this one is one to get excited about! Crank Yankers is coming back to COmedy Central on a digital platform. Since caller ID is far more common now than before Crank Yankers will be expanding beyond just phone calls. They will be doing stuff on social media and other platforms that were not a thing last time the show was on. Will all the characters come back? We certainly hope so!
