Joel McHale has the type of job most of us would love to have. He spends the week watching television, then picks the funniest, most outrageous, and completely mindless clips to show us each week on his show "The Soup," (not to be confused with it’s predecessor, "Talk Soup") On the show, Joel skewers talk shows, reality TV, morning shows, and idiotic celebrities while at the same time poking fun at all things pop culture. When not in front of his television or the studio camera, Joel still finds time to perform stand-up comedy around the country. He’s also becoming quite the actor, having appeared on the shows "Pushing Daisies" and "CSI: Miami," and in the films The Onion Movie, Lords of Dogtown and in the NBC sitcom, Community.
