In a world of ridiculous-things-happen, I was named a TED Fellow! So I’ll be giving a little TED talk on the stuff I do on social justice comedy (that genre of comedy that I’ve pretended exists for the entirety of my career). If you’re going to the TED conference, hit me up! We’ll have a drink and a gossip. Till then, you’re delightful.
Well, I gotta say, Its totally lovely that the Huffington Post included me in their list of Top 53 Female Comedians. They forgot a bunch of delightful and hilarious be-titted colleagues like Becky Donohue, Katie Halper, Amy Albert, Julie Goldman, Charlyne Yi etc etc. But even though the list is incomplete, I still gotta brag about it. WHAT? You would do that same!
I wracked my brain thinking of all the toothbrush commercials I’ve seen in the past and even though I’m IN this toothbrush commercial and even though there’s no way I could possibly be impartial, I have decided that this is, objectively, the funniest toothbrush commercial I’ve ever seen.

I’m in Austin, TX for the South by Southwest Film, Music & Interactive Festival! I’m actually the IFC network’s on-camera correspondent for all things information-digital-cloud-space. I’ll be jamming the IFC airwaves with my face starting March 13th (or possibly 14th) and if you’ve got one of those picture boxes, you should set your dvr’s to watch me report on stuff at your very own convenience. Also, I’ve got some standup on Saturday March 13 at 3:30pm and Thursday March 18 at 9:30. These things are all duly listed on the fancy show’s page. I’ll also be hosting a “talk” at the IFC studios on Sunday at 3pm. It will basically be a bunch of comedians talking about how they use Twitter.
If you or someone you love or vaguely know is at SXSW, come by and say hello! In keeping with the fine standards of entertainment journalism, and in preparation for my IFC debut, I’ll be doing shots of BBQ sauce.
And here is some standup!
Folks! I’ve been threatening to post my reel online and now that threat is an alarming and totally scary reality. So scary, it will make you hire me next time you need a director/writer/producer, or just director, or just writer, or any combination therein. Ehem, anyways, check it, enjoy it, be duly impressed by it. (Or at least I hope so, its supposed to be my main bragging item.)
Folks! Here’s a video I made for SEIU that’s about something that drives everyone - and I mean EVERYONE - crazy. Enjoy slash get unnerved.
Folks! Here’s more directin,’ editin,’ and concept developmentin’ from me. Fun fact: HAARM was the most popular “anti-healthcare reform” website for a time on the web… we fooled them.
