Margaret Cho, one of the most intelligent and sharp comics our generation has known, turns 45 today. I love that Margaret has found a new fan base appreciating her fun performance as Teri in Drop Dead Diva. Cho is currently on tour for her comedy show titled, “Mother.” She recently spoke to Jeff Albertson from The Seattle Times and revealed that she has been thinking about motherhood. “I think I would be all right, I think I would be cautious, but it’s scary to love somebody that much.”

We are all thrilled to be celebrating the 28th birthday of Frankie Muniz today. Last week the star disclosed that he had suffered yet another mini stroke. This is the second stroke the former child actor has suffered in two years. Last year, after his first stroke, he told People, “My biggest problem is I always want to be working, going non-stop. So it’s a wakeup call to take a little time and relax a bit.”
On December 5, 1974 the BBC aired the final episode of Monty Python’s Flying Circus. The episode included the conclusion of the brilliant sketch: “Most Awful Family in Britain” Annual Awards
