Why You Should Know Who Comedian Cynthia Kao Is

Elizabeth Banks Whohaha-Cynthia Kao

Here at WhoHaha, we f*cking love funny women who are creating smart, hilarious content – and Cynthia Kao is one of them.

A performer and writer at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in Los Angeles, Cynthia was previously a staff writer on TBS’ “Ground Floor” and is currently a writer for CollegeHumor. While her videos are always funny, they also make you cringe at the hard truth she is serving up.

One such video is “If Men Had Periods It Wouldn’t Be Gross,” which Kao wrote and directed:

The sentence, “Oh flow you don’t!” is now one of our favorite things along with, “WHAT UP Bloody Bitches, I could smell you down the street.”

The sketch skewers the notion that periods are completely taboo and disgusting, and if men had them, they’d just be trendy and cool.

Or this recent brilliant sketch that Kao stars in and wrote for CollegeHumor:

D-D-DAMN. Take that, birth control double standard!

Then there’s the sheer brilliance of “If Pop Songs Were Written By Feminists”:

Oh. My. GOD.

Us, right now:

We’ll leave you with “PSA For Men” because it’s amazing:


*Slow clap*

Kao’s satirical writing is inspiring and badass. We can’t wait for her next video.

The First Episode of Mo Welch’s “REBRAND” Web Series Is Brilliant

If you’re a fan of mockumentary style comedy, this web series is speaking your language. Written by, edited by and starring comedian Mo Welch, Rebrand follows the fictional fallen youtube star Lee as she attempts to rebrand her image.

“Watch as Lee tries to keep her relationships with her only remaining friends, despite being ostracized from the YouTube community for inappropriate behavior. Can she make it back to 5 MIL followers or will she be at 0 MIL followers forever?”

We can’t wait for episode 2! Here’s hoping there’s lots more of Lee squeaking, “Awwwwkward” because there can never be enough of that.

#FreeKesha Cocktail Tutorial

Cristen Conger is an absolute queen. Not only do her videos constantly teach us things we’d otherwise maybe not know, but they do it in a very interesting way. Like making a cocktail. Watch as Cristen skewers the absolute heinous court ruling as she makes the #FreeKeshaCocktail.

If Kristen Wiig Doesn’t Get An Oscar For This, We Give Up

It’s finally here. The trailer for Kristen Wiig’s upcoming tour de force film, “Crying In a Sweater.” Kristen’s performance can only be described as haunting, moving, and method. Seriously. If she doesn’t get an Oscar nom for this, what even are the Academy Awards?!

Thank you Jimmy Kimmel for being brave enough to premiere the emotionally riveting trailer.
