How to describe how much we love Lilly Singh? She’s the funniest, the badassiest, and now it turns out that she’s a top notch educator too. In this epic burn filled four minutes, Superwoman utterly destroys dumb internet racists with a simple lesson in geography.
How badass is Petey Gibson?? From creating the hilarious series Meals With Mary to writing rad sketches to performing stand-up and improv all over the globe, there’s pretty much nothing they can’t do. We’re card carrying members of the Petey Posse, and we wanted everyone to share in the magic that is this hilarious comedian. So we created a playlist of a few of their greatest hits, so you get in on the party. Yay Petey!
There’s no question that the ladies owned the Globes last night. Emma Stone won for LaLaLand, Tracee Ellis Ross was the first black woman to win a Golden Globe since 1983, and Meryl Streep brought us to our damn knees. Let’s watch them slay, shall we?!?!
For starters, the speech every human with a heart is talking about. Meryl took the mic and blew up the damn room with her classy burns on Trump and gut-punchingly accurate summary of where the world is at right now. It’s long and it’s powerful and it’s the speech we needed. Also, good job not trying to play her off before she was done, because you do NOT roll the music on Meryl.
Next up TRACEE YAAAAAS!!!! The veteran comedian won a Globie for her hilarious performance in Blackish (which btw is so funny and so charming and you should really be watching it). She may be funny as hell, but honestly the tear fest continued when she dedicated her win to ‘women, women of color and colorful people’. Thank you, Ms. Ross.
Then there was Emma Stone’s adorable speech where she spent about half of it thanking her mom. Her mom!! We’re dead.
But if there’s anything that can bring us back to life, it’s the magical chemistry between Kristen Wiig and Steve Carell. Honestly their presenter banter was the funniest minute and a half of the whole show. Can we please have them back as hosts next year? Plz???
Tbh, sometimes we’re kind of intimidated when we think about how cool Jenny Yang is. The badass comedian started out as a budding politician, and it definitely makes sense because she took over the comedy scene like a damn general staging a coup.
Yang produces the mostly female, Asian American standup comedy tour, Disoriented Comedy, as well as The Comedy Comedy Festival: A Comedy Festival. She does stand-up at college and clubs all over the country, she acts and writes for everything from Buzzfeed to SourceFed to The Guardian, and LA Weekly called her one of the most fascinating people in the city. Which, yeah, no freakin duh.
If you think Jenny is cool too, watch our playlist of some of her greatest hits, then keep an eye out for her Facebook live and Snapchat takeover later in the week. More Jenny means more happy.
Ask us how much we love Margaret Cho. GO AHEAD ASK US. We love her so much, we just had to make a whole playlist of some of our favorite moments of Cho-ness.
She inspires us because she’s a brilliant comedian, a great actor, a badass activist, an outspoken feminist, and an important mentor for Asian-American comics and creative women. She brought conversations about mental health into the mainstream and she’s been a trailblazer all her career. Also, she’s so god-damn funny it hurts. So snuggle up and enjoy spending a lil time with Queen Margaret.
You haven’t heard a burn until you’ve heard Elizabeth Banks compare Effie Trinket to Trump. We have three words for this speech: SLAY QUEEN SLAAAAAYYYY.
