Welcome to GUY CODE, the official blog of MTV2's "Guy Code" series and your online destination for all things dude, including—but not limited to—irreverent commentary on sports, hip-hop and ladies. Stay awhile and flex your manhood.
On Tuesday's episode of "Guy Code," the cast will talk about losing your virginity. Some of us here at Guy Code Blog are sharing our stories. #Don'tJudgeUs
My girlfriend in college was a theater major and a year ahead of me. She was outspoken, fun to hang out with and more sexually enlightened than I was, which only intimidated me THIS-F'N-MUCH!
We had been a couple for some time, but hadn't slept together. We were "taking things slow." Now that I think about it, though, she probably didn't want to move too quickly and frighten me off like a scared rabbit.
However, as a late-blooming college sophomore, I decided it was time to become a man for the second time in my life (my Bar Mitzvah was the first) and saw the upcoming Valentine's Day as the perfect opportunity.
After a nice dinner, followed by a few watered-down drinks and flat beers at a nearby bar, we headed to my dorm. I was lucky enough to have a single room. My walls were covered with posters of Allen Iverson, "The Matrix" and Rage Against the Machine, creating a mood as romantic as a clown getting hit by a car. Read More...
Unfortunately "Guy Code" isn't on TV every second of the day, but there's some good news: Comedy Central has a new series that you're gonna love, "Kroll Show," which features comedian Nick Kroll opening his treasure chest of demented sketch characters. One of our favorites is Bobby Bottleservice, a "Jersey Shore" reject who's gonna make it big in the music biz, if he ever makes it out of his mom's house. Watch the first episode tonight at 10:30/9:30c, and check out this sneak peek in the meantime.
One of the great additions to "Guy Code" in Season Three (which premieres on MTV2 January 15 at 11/10c) is comedian Dan Soder, who performed on Conan O'Brien's show last night. He covered topics ranging from why young guys' tattoos are less intimidating than old guys' tattoos--an inspirational quote or a koi fish won't make you look like a badass--to how you can avoid getting mugged by faking a Russian accent, because "Russians are the scariest white people." (Especially the old tattooed ones?)
Let's be honest, there is a lot of pressure on you tonight for New Year's Eve. You have to find the right party. You have to be with the right people. And you have to have the most epic time ever. All of those high expectations lead people to do some desperate things...like go to weird parties where questionable dudes have some odd ideas about where the night is going.
It's New Year's Eve and we want you to get crazy, but whatever you do, make sure you're not accidentally taking your girlfriend to a F*** Party.
Some girls will break up with you, offer to get back together and then break up with you again five minutes later. It's not because they can't make up their minds--at least that would be (kinda) understandable--but they love drama. Instead of just watching a soap opera, they decide to make your life one.
To illustrate this nightmare, comedian Nikki Glaser--who will co-star in MTV's "Nikki & Sara LIVE"--continues her web series with Joe DeRosa, the poor schlub whose luck has run out in the "Worst Break Up Ever." Watch and learn, because an on-again, off-again relationship will drive you out of your mind.
2012 has been a great year for stand-up comedians. The Internet has allowed audiences to become much savvier about the comedy they consume. They, in turn, have responded by packing clubs and theaters around the country and performers have responded by raising the bar each year.
It was no easy task coming up with a list of the year's best comedy albums, so we painstakingly narrowed it down to 13. There is a generous representation of style, substance and just plain good frikkin' jokes. We want readers to weigh in as well with our Best Comedy Album of 2012 poll below.
Patrice O'Neal sadly passed away in 2012, but not before leaving fans with arguably one of the greatest comedy albums of the last 10 years. "Mr. P" includes his signature unapologetic, off-the-cuff style of engaging audiences and serving up his perspective on interracial couples and having cash. Read More...
That's veteran actor and comedian David Koechner pointing to his bald dome. Because he's damn proud of it...as well as the remaning circle of hair surrounding his head's summit that other baldies shave (Matt Hasselbeck) and some cover with a hat (Ron Howard).
Along with SNL's Abby Elliott and actor/comedian Owen Benjamin, Koechner just wrapped up a six-city romp with AXE Hair's "Splitting Hairs Comedy Tour." Among other topics, the trio discussed hair (surprise!) and Koechner's lack thereof. He doesn't lament his bareheadedness, though. Koechner celebrates it. It's actually cool to be bald now, maybe the universe's way of balancing the unrestrained hairstyles of the '70s and '80s. Or maybe most people realized they looked ridiculous. Whatever the case, bald is back.
Koechner is uniquely qualified as a funny bald man to break down the best follicly-challenged dudes of 2012, so we asked him to comment on the top 12 as selected by Guy Code Blog. Koechner's genius follows.
Let's be honest, guys. It's tough for men to make new male friends. When you meet each other, you don't want to be overly nice and make the other guy uncomfortable. But, you also don't want to come across as a dick. There's just a lot of things to consider--that's why sometimes we just look like two dogs circling each other.
The Wait List sketch comedy group decided to address this male phenomenon and make it funny. Check out their brand new comedy video, "It's A Friend Thing," produced for MTV.com.
As Hanukkah rolls on, we wondered who amongst the A-list crowd is celebrating. We know the obvious (Adam Sandler), the super-obvious (Steven Spielberg) and the super-duper obvious (Matisyahu). However, some of our assumptions didn't pan out. Just because someone looks Jewish--or has a Jewish-sounding last name--doesn't mean they had a bar or bat mitzvah. Here are 10 unexpected nonmembers of the tribe.

That Eastern European mug suggests his in-flight meals are kosher, but alas, "Weird" Al is Serbian, English and Italian. He does not practice Judaism, despite what "Pretty Fly (For a Rabbi)" would have you believe.
Only a handful of standup comedians become household names, but many others go onstage regardless, hoping to reach a large enough audience to get paid for an hour per night. Fortunately, Kickstarter has leveled the playing field for ambitious comics looking to record an album or DVD of their material, such as those in the indie comedy special "Make Fun," co-produced by Guy Code Blog contributor Jim Tews.
This feature-length movie, funded by fans and filmed in Cleveland, brings together comics who wanted to make something for themselves instead of waiting for a Hollywood green light. There's no release date, but clips and bonus material are going up online, such as the below video featuring Lee Honeycutt. Be sure to keep up with the film's progress, because you never know which underexposed comic will hit the A-list next.
