We Have Issues, Julian McCullough, Annie Lederman

Brace yourselves, celebrities!

In E!'s fresh and fun comedy series We Have Issues, stand-up comics Julian McCullough and Annie Lederman are tackling the biggest stories in pop culture, and they aren't playing it safe!

Each week, the witty pair will compete in challenges to determine who is the funniest when it comes to debating entertainment news, and a guest judge will ultimately decide the winner. The premiere will feature none other than Tom Green!

In an exclusive interview, E! News chatted with the hilarious co-hosts, who dished about the new show and why they're anxious to talk about Taylor Swift's booty!

What can fans expect on the show?

Julian: It's going to be fast-paced and incredibly honest.

Annie: It's opinionated and fun.

Julian: We're not going to bring up a topic unless we're going to talk about how we really feel about it, and that's not very common on TV.

What recent headlines are you excited to talk about?

Annie: The Whitney Houston hologram was one.

Julian: Then there was—Ben Foster is a method actor who did everything Lance Armstrong did. He did the blood stuff and the steroids and everything and said he almost lost his mind. Like, why do you ever have to go that far for acting?

Annie: Right. It's too much.

Julian: Then, this guy is going to lose his job because he tried to grab Taylor Swift's butt two years ago. We have a lot to say about that because it's, first of all, impossible.

Is there anything that will be off limits?

Julian: Real news. I don't think we're going to do any politics. Maybe we will.

Annie: It depends if it's something funny. We don't want to hurt children. Hurting children is off limits.

Julian: We're not mean people, but we also appreciate that the funniest jokes always have a victim.

Are there any dream comedians you would love to have on the show?

Julian: Whitney's Houston's hologram would be awesome.

Annie: Abraham Lincoln would be great. He's got a lot to say. He's a funny guy and good at judging.

Why did you want to do the show?

Annie: They were like, "You get to be mean to Julian McCullough." I do that already!

Julian: They wanted us to be ourselves together and I was like, "Oh, well then as long as that's what we get to do then this should be a really entertaining show."

Annie: We've just known each other for so long and it's exciting to work with your friends. And it's really fun to s--t on each other.

Watch the premiere of We Have Issues next week Friday at 10PM, only on E!
