Let's rewatch the time Stormy Daniels crushed Ken Marino's balls on Party Down

Randall Colburn Mar 13, 2018. 16 comments

The name Stormy Daniels has been all over the news lately, what with the former adult film actress allegedly having had a months-long affair with our president in 2006 as his wife while he was still a national punchline (and his wife was still recovering from childbirth). Reports circulated that Donald Trump’s lawyer paid $130,000 in hush money to Daniels just before the election, and just a few days ago Daniels filed her own lawsuit against Trump for apparently not signing their non-disclosure agreement. He’s a smart one.

Though this might be the first you’ve heard of the name Stormy Daniels, it’s probably not the first time you’ve seen the actress. Daniels actually has a fairly extensive resume in non-pornographic works, with small roles in Judd Apatow’s The 40 Year-Old Virgin, FX’s Courtney Cox-starring series Dirt, and Comedy Central’s Mind Of Mencia. Sure, she was usually playing the role of “porn star,” but work’s work.

Her most robust role, as UpWorthy’s Parker Molloy points out, came in Starz’s cult classic series Party Down, an A.V. Club favorite that ran for two seasons back in 2009. In season one episode “Sin Say Shun Awards Afterparty,” she played—surprise—a porn star feuding with a colleague over the award for “best blowjob.” Later, she sizes up the porn prospects of Ken Marino’s hapless Ron Donald before accidentally crushing his balls with her award, which is shaped like a giant, golden dildo.

Check out her scenes above and below or, if you haven’t, just watch all of Party Down.

Taped on Tuesday but broadcast as part of Friday’s show (as is Stephen Colbert’s sneaky way), last night’s Late Show interview with guest Robert De Niro was enjoyably halting, if that’s a thing. Colbert was upfront about what he was expecting from the infamously terse and no-bullshit De Niro, prefacing his questions by noting that, just maybe, De Niro...

Of course, there’s rich and super-rich, and guy with late-night CBS money Colbert was left goofing incredulously on 50's cache of self-given Christmas cars. (Basically every...

On last night’s Idris Elba-hosted Saturday Night Live, the first sketch after Elba’s monologue was a game show, which might not exactly suggest the episode was reaching for new comic territory. (Just a thought, try a season with no game show, talk show, or reality show parodies. See what pops up.) Anyway, Elba joined Cecily Strong, Beck Bennett, and...
