Because he hasnt yet had an icky cameo on Glee, you might not realize that actor and comedian Joel McHales star is cresting. He plays heartthrob Jeff Winger, a lawyer forced to go back to junior college, on NBCs Community. And he hosts E!s The Soup, a clip show that mocks the very Hollywood culture that the celebrity-obsessed channel encourages. Despite two popular shows and his role in three upcoming blockbusters, McHale is still tearing up the stand-up circuit. When he stops at the Hard Rock this Saturday, expect him to lacerate the cult of celebrity (specifically Ryan Seacrest) and hyperbolize parenthood. As he recently tweeted: My three year old is upstairs stomping around screaming, Wheres my knife?! Wheres my knife?! So Proud. #raisingaDanielDayLewisCharacter.
