Sometimes the world seems dark and scary, and then Netflix announces that they’ll be rebooting Magic School Bus and Kween Kate will be voicing the fashion forward science teacher, and suddenly you’re SCREAMING WITH JOY. We truly cannot wait for Kate McKinnon to take over for Lily Tomlin as Ms Frizzle. This also feels like the perfect opportunity to post a video of another brush Kate had with weird science. She’s perfection.
Ok Saturday Night Live with John Cena was fun and nice. But we’re not a website about fun and nice tv. We’re a website about women burning shit to the ground with comedy. And we really, really need you to see this sketch with Aidy and Kate from last night. Who knew what America needed was Officer Les Dykawitz and Officer Chubbina Fatzarelli to save Christmas? Those two are truly the trillest X-mas angels of all.
Did you know that today was the day you were going to see a precious Newlywed Game-style interview with Kate and Vanessa? And that they were going to cuddle and hug the whole time? Unless you work for Wired the answer is prob no. But even though we were unprepared for the cuteness, this interview was everything and more to us and we loved it. Also our girl Banks gets a very cute shoutout and honestly we agree with the random Google searchers, they could def be related.
Damn. Daaaaamn. SNL doesn’t always get everything right, but this week’s cold open was a perfect thing. It’s hard to laugh right now without getting a little cry out first. At least when you’re a woman or a person of color or lgbtq or an immigrant etc etc etc. Kate McKinnon gave us our daily cry on Saturday, so that we could go in to Dave Chappelle’s amazing monologue a little less weighed down.
And honestly the rest of the sketches were perfection too. Watch this Leslie Jones bit as a little bonus, in which she discusses the struggles of dating while being Leslie, and then really grosses out Dave. It’s beautiful.
Boy oh boy, are we ready for the weekend! We could all use a day off, what with this being a stressful season and all. But the thing is, no one in the world needs a day off more than Kellyanne Conway.
Poor sweet Kellyanne. Every time Trump tweets something horrifying or blurts out a slur, the bubbly campaign manager is there, mumbling about how that’s not actually what he said, doing damage control as best she can. It sounds exhausting tbh. But when Kellyanne is played by Kate McKinnon, it’s also friggin hilarious.
Ok so in case you were under a rock last night, the Emmys were 100% about the women this year. Veep took home the award for best comedy series and Julia Louis-Dreyfus won for best actress in a comedy, Tatiana Maslany won for best actress in a drama but she’s hilarious so we’re counting it as a win for funny ladies, Jill Soloway took home the comedy directing honors, and Tina and Amy had to split an award. Plus as an extra bonus, #EmmysAren’tAsWhiteAsTheyUsedToBe and that’s a good thing for errybody.
We put together a few of our favorite moments from the comedy queens who won the night, whether they took home a statue or not. Feeling like a bunch of proud younger sisters right now, tbh.
Amy and Tina were two halves of the same heart as always:
Tatiana Maslany did the world’s sweetest interview:
Julia Louis-Dreyfus took us from laughing at her amazing social satire to ugly crying for her loss in RECORD time:
And Ellie Kemper told the story of a fight between a man and a bus:
