Debrastated

Mitra Jouhari, Sandy Honig, and Alyssa Stonoha as/in “Three Busy Debras” (2020)Aw, looks like the first season of Adult Swim’s delightfully deranged “short-form” sitcom Three Busy Debras was only six episodes long! To ease the pain of parting a little, the finale did feature a scene-stealing cameo by Sunita Mani, and a surprisingly poignant ending… but I’m still going to miss this series like a mutha. I know it’s wrong to have a favourite Debra, as all Debras are equal in the eyes of God, but I couldn’t help crushing super-hard on Sandy Honig, who – it turns out – has made frustratingly few onscreen appearances in the past. Barely a named role to call her own before this, in fact… presumably because she was otherwise engaged pursuing her passion for photography, as exhibited on her website… which includes a (NSFW) spoof “stock photo” gallery for her (fictional?) agency SandyStock™! Hopefully, when/if the entertainment industry gets back on track, TBD will get picked up for another couple (hundred) seasons, and she’ll have acting offers aplenty to sift through! Ah well, at least until then we still have her Tweets (and brilliant skits like this one) to enjoy… also her self-penned (and extremely premature) obituary, for some reason…!

Meanwhile, fellow mind-f*cker Patti Harrison showed her support for the series by posting an Instagram snap of herself wearing a “Debra” name-chain, which has now inspired me to collect similarly branded tribute merch… er, assuming we’re ever released from lockdown, and gift shops are still a thing in the after-times…?
