Standup comedy is alive and well these days as Chris Tucker,Mo’Nique and Katt Williams are all mounting comeback shows on the comedy circuit. And the comeback king, Arsenio Hall, is back on TV again after 20 years. Oprah sits down to talk about second chances with him. Norfolk State and Hampton go to war for their annual “Battle of the Bay” this weekend and in case you missed it, the BET Hip-Hop Awards re-airs over the weekend. And the much talked about, critically acclaimed (before it even comes out) “12 Years a Slave” hits the big screen starring Chiwetel Ejiofor, Brad Pitt, Alfre Woodward and Michael Fassbender.

9. Apparently my 260lbs is too much for the actual vines in the Hawaiian jungles to hold me without breaking and me falling hundreds of feet. So for safety purposes, I'm forced to swing thru #Jumanjj on wires strong enough to hold 12 adult buffaloes and 1 adult Rock. #OnSet #Jumanji #IronicallyIEatBuffaloDailyForLunch #MoreManThanNatureKnowsWhatToDoWith
