Bridget Everett, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways. You wear fabulously revealing get-ups for all your sets, you're a lady whose size can rival the guys, you look hot all the time, you make some of the bluest jokes I've ever heard, you have "the voice of an angel," you guest regularly on Inside Amy Schumer, and Time Out named you one of the "funniest New Yorkers."
If you aren't acquainted with all that, Bridget's brand-spankin'-new NSFW video is about something we all know and love: "Titties." What better place for this exclusive premiere than right here on BUST. Read More

Oh Lizzy, I couldn’t agree more. We women have been gracing the world with our comedic talents for far too long. It’s time for the boys, with their biologically inferior jokes, to share a little of the glory. Check out her interview on Comedy Bang! Bang! about how the comedy world should be a little more equal for the genders:
Man, nothing I love more than some good satire. Read More

Retta, the comic powerhouse behind Parks and Rec’s indomitable Donna, schools us on everything from owning Twitter to surviving V-Day.
If someone asks you who Retta is, and you reply “my imaginary best friend,” you’re pretty much in step with the rest of the world right now. The New Jersey native and hilarious triple threat (actor/comedian/trained opera singer) first became a household name with her portrayal of Donna Meagle, the uber-competent, luxury-loving, romance-adept Pawnee government employee on NBC’s long-running sitcom Parks and Recreation.

BUST cover woman Amy Schumer truly is the master of comedic timing. In the wake of Mother's Day, only she could come up with a sketch for tonight's new episode of Inside Amy Schumer that covers an innocent topic--the technological generation gap--with such fierce wit.
The sketch is as much about moms as it is technology. Schumer pinpoints all those wonderfully cringeworthy things moms do: touch your hair and clothes without your permission, ask for your help and then refuse to take it, and insist they have no clue how to do things you could swear you JUST saw them do.

If you've ever taken a trip with your mom to the Mall, or as in my case, taken your kids to the mall, you will no doubt appreciate this awesome clip by our favorite Mom impersonator, John Roberts. He also plays the voice of Linda Belcher on Bob's Burgers, and most certainly loves his mama. Happy Mothers Day!

When the cast of 30 Rock bid a last adieu to their Thursday night slot on NBC...everything basically shattered for me. First The Office, now this? Suddenly, Parks & Recreation had to pull a lot of the comedy weight for the widely-acknowledged funniest network on the telly. And I suddenly had an extra hour and a half to fill every week, twiddling my thumbs in the absence of a Liz Lemon laugh riot.
It's been a rough few years, but finally -- does one dare to dream?! -- there's a pilot season on the horizon that just might fill the gap. Read More

Bad Lip Reading is back and as uproarious as ever.
The first time I watched Twilight I was helping out at a birthday party for 13- year- old girl, so I was without a doubt scarred for life. Robert Patterson was ruined forever.
Thankfully, Bad Lip Reading came to my rescue. This video is the only way I could ever watch 7 minutes of the Twilight series without cringing.
The clip is full of hilarious lines and even a couple of tambourine song numbers. Read More

You may remember our post about a kickstarter for the "Obvious Child" short released a few years ago. Well, thanks to many generous folks and the talented work of Gillian Robespierre, along with her friends Anna Bean (a beloved ex-BUST intern!) and Karen Maine, we finally get to see a subversive comedy about laughing at love, life, and abortion!
Gillian Robespierre, Bean and Maine came up with the story through their frustration with limited representation of women's experiences with pregnancy and love. Read More

When comedian Liza Dye of NYC's Upright Citizens Brigade was struck by a B train on February 13, the New York Post said she was nothing more than a "straphanger" who didn't have her wits about her.
In fact, the opposite is true. The very witty Liza Dye was not even looking at her phone that morning. Actually, she's so witty that she even joked with the passengers whose train she inadvertently delayed: "I'm sorry I made you late for work!" If you were in the New York area you remember the blizzards that ravaged the city, and knocked us all off balance in one way or another. Read More
