All but one of the mass murders in the U.S. over the last 30 years has been committed by men. The fact that gender is often omitted from the story speaks to how we still see the masculine as the irreproachable and invisible standard. As Michael Kimmel notes in his extensive research on school shootings, if the genders were reversed and most school shootings were committed by women, you’d bet gender would be part of the analysis.

We often instead shift the conversation to “mental illness” and describe shooters as madmen, while the characteristics they exhibit are often an extension of toxic masculinity ideals that are institutionally reinforced.

"…if the genders were reversed and most school shootings were committed by women, you’d bet gender would be part of the analysis." 

So true.

The Perfect Week - Complete Playlist

Working on this series was a blast. “The Perfect Week” is the most creatively fulfilling project I’ve ever worked on, and I’m so glad that after months of waiting, we were finally able to release it online.

Huge thanks to the cast and crew for being so talented and professional, thanks to JASH/BUH for hosting the series, and thanks to everyone who watched, liked, and shared it last week. Also, personal thanks to the UCB, the best place in the world for comedy and also where I met the magical wizard Joe Pera almost five years ago.

Now that all the episodes are up, I’m going to post the link to the playlist one more time. I promise this is the last time. That’s it. I hope you have a great week.

This is one of my favorite things I’ve ever seen on the internet. If you didn’t watch this last week for some godforsaken reason, do it now.

You NEED to watch this series if you haven’t yet.

I wasn’t too clear on Net Neutrality and the implications of the FCC vote yesterday, but this video is COMPREHENSIVE.  It also shares lots of links for what you can do.

Life lesson here? Spoilers are bad for everyone. 

Watch the full first season of “Approach The Bench” here. 

I was 15 when “Waiting for Guffman” came out. I wouldn’t discover improv for another ten years, but I knew back then that Guffman was brilliant and special and I watched it obsessively.

This was a fun shoot. And I got to tell Bob Balaban that I adore him and that Guffman is essentially the reason I’m doing comedy. Dreamy xoxo

"Dad Jokes"
March 3rd, 2014

This is easily one of my top three favorite sketches I’ve written in my two and a half years on Maude Night.

Jon gives an absolutely incredible performance and nailed it from moment one. The support work from Lisa, Kelly, and Dan adds a ton and it’s super fun to listen to the audience’s reactions.

Proud of this little guy. Give it a watch please.

Surprising, genuine, sweet. Trusting the moment. Love this.

I really loved this sketch. LIKE LOVE LOVED

Top notch sketch! Very enjoyable! 

Fucking fantastic.

I’m Too Fragile For This: “Cool Downz”

A new episode! The idea for this one came from a pitch by Comedy wunderkind Alyssa Stonoha.

This is my favorite episode in a while.  I forgot we even shot this so it was a happy surprise from Tom Levin.  

Enjoy the cool weather, folks.  It’s creepin up on CoolDownz® time.
