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.
Some guys make a career out of being rehabilitated criminals, writing books and lecturing on their violent pasts. But, sometimes, when a dude is boasting about how tough he was back in the day, you've gotta remain skeptical. Case in point: J. Darius Watkins, the latest guest on Damien Lemon's web comedy series "D.Lemon in the Morning."
This author of "cellblock sonnets" might have some hardcore tales to tell, but dig a little deeper,and his rap sheet is as weak as his rapping. Check out the new episode below:
You don't have to be a screenwriter to understand how coming-of-age movies are structured: An unfulfilled guy is thrown into a new situation, problems arise, he fixes them and finds happiness. It's a storytelling formula that's worked forever...but what if a protagonist rejected his own hero's journey?
The Wait List sketch comedy group is back with a "Guy Code" original video, about a dude who just won't let his story begin. Watch the movie trailer parody below, so you can appreciate films that actually go somewhere:
Summer brings BBQs, bike rides and pool parties...but let's be honest, you're still watching that damn TV. We're currently smack dab in the middle of rerun season, but fret not, comedy fan! Thanks to Netflix streaming, you're just one click away from checking out some amazing TV. Sure, you've probably watched "Arrested Development," "Always Sunny" and "Parks & Rec," but here are some other hilarious shows that you may not have even heard of before.
"Blue Mountain State"
This vastly underrated series never quite found the fan base it deserves. If you've yet to experience this raunchy comedy, there are 39 hilarious episodes waiting for you on Netflix. All of the Blue Mountain State Mountain Goats are hilarious in their own right, however the team's perpetually homoerotic linebacker, Thad Castle, is the show's standout character. Every single line Thad delivers is quote-worthy comedy gold.
In the most recent episode, Damien invites scandal-mongering gossip blogger Lil' Keisha on his radio show, and she's come with some blind items about him. We're gonna endorse co-host Sim on this one: "I'm a grown-up. I'm a grown man. I don't do gossip." But play the video below anyway, because some (fake) rumors are too entertaining to ignore.
There are many different ways to get a woman's attention, but the perfect compliment can really set you apart -- that is, of course, if you know what you're doing. Unfortunately, most dudes make the rookie mistake of saying what's on their minds when giving praise.
Honesty is the best policy, most of the time, but when you're issuing a compliment, you have to use a filter. Luckily, we're back with our patented Compliment Translator. Three more female comedians are here to help you avoid a compliment catastrophe. Because talking with a lady is like talking with a cop -- think very, very hard before opening your mouth, or else they'll misinterpret anything you say.
"Guy Code" viewers have long known that Chris Distefano is one hilarious guy, a fact that millions of people discovered last night. His appearance on "The Late Show With David Letterman" was a slam dunk, covering topics from his dad's questionable occupation ("big, tough Italian dude from the Bronx, never had a job but he's always had money") to how people in England just don't speak proper English.
Huge congrats to Chris for this career milestone...even if we can't quite get used to the sight of him in a suit. Video below:
Have you ever sincerely tried to woo a special lady, but somehow made her feel like Jabba the Hutt? How could your words be so misconstrued?
In the dicey world of flattery, you must be a skilled diplomat of male-female relations. Before anything comes out of your mouth, inspect it and translate it into lady-speak. Otherwise, when you say, "You look beautiful today," she might hear, "You look beautiful today, but on every other day you're hideous."
To help ensure that your compliments are complimentary, we asked three female comedians to run our tender words through their insult filters. The results are so shocking, we might never say anything nice about anyone again.
Your girlfriend knows your face, but how well does she know your voice? That's the question a group of New York comedians try to answer in the below Dumb As A Blog video. Joe Klein, Mike Cannon, Anthony DeVito, Doug Smith, Matt Wayne and Joel Walkowski take turns calling the other guys' chicks and committing lighthearted identity theft.
The experiment starts slow with a couple impersonation fails, but definitely gets funnier as it goes -- especially when they switch out girlfriends for moms at the 4:00 mark (never thought we'd write that phrase).
We've been loving Damien Lemon's comedy web series "D.Lemon in the Morning," and this week he's got a special guest: "Girl Code" cast member Tanisha Long, who's playing a humanitarian with a secret past. Well, a public past. Yeah, she might be a knife-wielding maniac, but who doesn't go through an awkward phase?
Watch the episode below, and then catch Tanisha (and the other "Girl Code" gals) on MTV Tuesdays at 9:30/8:30c.
Think the festival fun is over when summer ends? Think again. On October 19th, Jack Black and Kyle Gass, the comic rockers behind Tenacious D, are throwing Festival Supreme, a music and comedy fest of epic proportions, at the Santa Monica Pier in Los Angeles. Here are five reasons you should race to grab pre-sale tickets today at 1 p.m. ET.
1. Adam Sandler's Return To Music
Adam Sandler brought us classics like "Lunch Lady" and "The Chanukah Song," so it's safe to say he's got something big planned for his return to musical comedy. We're not the only ones anticipating his musical comeback; Jack Black told USA Today, "I'm looking forward to seeing what Adam has up his sleeve. Every time he sings a song, it becomes iconic."
2. Triumph Might Poop On Something
Triumph The Insult Comic Dog can always be counted on to bring the funny and turn a regular event into a s***show. We can't wait to see what he's going do at Festival Supreme.
