Rant: Monthly Dee-Lights (3/21)

Just a quick note of some of the funnest content I consumed last month (in no particular order): – Fender (the guitar people) posted a socially-distanced chat with Corin Tucker and Carrie Brownstein (of Sleater-Kinney) about how their song “A … Continue reading

Rant: (Bi)-Monthly Dee-Lights (10/20 + 11/20)

Oopsie! What with Halloween (yay!), the new lockdown (boo!), the American election (yay!), and a crisis with my current scriptwriting project (boo!), I kinda let my blogging “obligations” slip… so here, for my millions of adoring readers (ho ho), is … Continue reading

Bang’er

It has taken me a shamefully long time to get around to watching Nikki Glaser’s new stand-up special Bangin’, which was released on Netflix waaay back in October of 2019, and is full-on hilarious from start-to-finish! Fair warning though, she … Continue reading

Bellyful Of Laughs

I kinda resent the way that Netflix has become a byword for TV-viewing in general, but can’t deny that they’ve been putting out some great shows lately… such as Natasha Leggero & Moshe Kasher’s Honeymoon Stand Up Special, which was … Continue reading

Quasi-GothWatch: Lazy Susan

Although country-bumpkins like myself only became aware of Celeste Dring after she was cast as Princess Eugenie in The Windsors, she first rose to fame as one half of the sketch-comedy duo Lazy Susan, along with fellow actress Freya Parker. … Continue reading

The Pervy People’s Princess

I know I’m a year (or more) late to the party here, but I just discovered the joy of Nikki Glaser’s sex-centric comedy, via her 2016 stand-up special (modestly titled “Perfect”), and her short-lived talk-show Not Safe with Nikki Glaser … Continue reading

Affirmatively Funny

I recently finished reading Jennifer Saunders‘ slightly scatty (but very enjoyable) showbiz memoir Bonkers: My Life in Laughs (2013), and I was intrigued to discover that she and Dawn French were the beneficiaries of “positive discrimination”, back in the day. … Continue reading

“The Meaninglessness Is Very Nice”

When not stealing scenes/hearts as ‘Nadia’ in New Girl, the English-born model-turned-actress Rebecca Reid also moonlights as a stand-up comedian in various clubs around L.A…. where, as far as I can tell from the scant clips I’ve seen, she traffics in … Continue reading
