CNN’s History Of Comedy series has been a wild (eh ok actually just informative) ride through giggles through the ages. And tonight’s episode highlights the rad women who’ve beaten a path through the boy’s club, and changed history for all of us. We are preeeeeetty stoked, and it looks like we’re going to see interviews and performances from some of the greats. Catch it tonight on CNN at 10.
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???
Waiting for Broad City season 4 to drop is agonizing. And honestly? We need Abby and Ilana now more than ever. So while we burn one (candle, of course) and wait for them to come back, we’ll be re-watching this weird mini movie with the Broad City babes and Amy and Tina. Then we’ll prob re-watch Sisters. Then seasons 1-3 of Broad City. Then we’ll take a nap.
This is one of our favorite cartoons since Wonder Woman. The fantastic weirdos of DJ Faucet re-dubbed an ad for a depression drug that’s so funny it could probably cure depression. We already watched this like 6 times and we’re gonna watch it again.
It’s here, it’s here! The most important holiday of the year is here! IT’S NATIONAL CAT DAY!
To celebrate, let’s all enjoy this perfect sketch from SNL. Theron plus McKinnon plus tiny kittens means pure sweet joy.
Are you ready for an early Christmas present? For the next twelve weeks Seeso is gonna be posting new stand-up specials every Thursday, and they got some amazing comics to sign on. We’re talking Janeane Garofalo, we’re talking Jena Friedman, we’re talking Tyree Elaine, we’re talking 90 DANG COMEDIANS. They’re mostly exclusive to the streaming service, so you gotta sign up if you’re ready to get those giggles.
Plus, Seeso already has some amazing comedy specials available for subscribers, like Marriage Material from Cameron Esposito. And since it’s streaming, you can watch it on your laptop at work. Not that… we would do that or anything. Just hypothetically.
