Let us introduce you to a very special lady. Nina Concepción is an actor, writer, improviser, author, comedian and all around badass babe. She wrote a hilarious book of essays, she’s a performer at the UCB Theatre in LA, and she co-created Schmotts, an amazing webseries that’s making the festival circuit. There’s nothing she can’t do, tbh. So who better to pick as our creator of the week! Pour out a glass of rosé for our heroine, and watch these sketches and clips like there’s no tomorrow. Yay Nina!
Abigail Breslin has already had an insanely successful career AND SHE’S ONLY 20! She slayed the screen in Little Miss Sunshine, she made us weep all over the place in August Osage County, and she’s so perfect in Scream Queens. In tribute to this lil baddie, we put together a few clips of her being wonderful. Happy Wednesday!
Get ready to squeal until your squealing muscles go weak. It’s tiny baby Anna Kendrick singing and dancing!! With the very hairy and sexual Kit Kat girls from Cabaret for some reason? Who knows, Broadway is weird.
Anyway enjoy this deep cut from the WhoHaha vaults. Here’s to the once and forever kween.
The ladies of SNL are back with another banger. This time featuring our ultimate woke bae theatre kid crush Lin-Manuel Miranda!
And yeah, ok, why lie, this song is like painfully relatable. All those dudes for sure definitely had a thing for us, even if they did later turn out to also be in love with Lin-Manuel.
We all know Mindy Kaling is funny and adorable. But sometimes we’re guilty of forgetting that she’s also a hard core badass. She’s been an executive producer, writer, and director on The Office, and she single-handedly created The Mindy Project. She also reps hard for comedians of color, and she’s a real role model for funny women everywhere. TL:DR – we love Mindy and you should too. Now watch this playlist, you nerds!
We are obsessed with Can I Pet Your Dog. Nearly as obsessed as the hosts are with meeting dogs! Allegra Ringo and Renee Colvert are two LA-based comedians who share a maybe-over-the-top love for all things pup-related. So they made a podcast about dogs!
Each episode features different segments, including Mutt Minute, Dogs We Met, Facebook Thread Of The Week, Drool School, and way more delightfully named lil puppy topics. Plus each week they feature a conversation with a hilarious dog-loving comedian, and past guests have included their producer Alexis Preston, Emily Axford, Julie Klausner, Nicole Byer, and LIN-MANUEL FREAKING MIRANDA.
Also the show is very clean, so if you have a kid who needs to be introduced to some dope ass comedy ladies, but you don’t want them to hear words like ‘dope’ and ‘ass’, this is the podcast for you!
Here’s the first episode with Lin-Manuel!
Here’s the ep with Nicole Byer!
And here’s the most recent episode!
