My favorite thing about lazy Sundays is watching Saturday Night Live with breakfast. Is this really lame of me? Maybe, but I like to laugh alone with cereal.
This weekend featured yet another gem of a lady-led sketch featuring host Sarah Silverman, Cecily Strong, Aidy Bryant, and Kate McKinnon as the big-haired, shoulder-padded stars of Supportive Women, the soap that no one watched, because, who wants to watch women on television unless they are conspiring to ...

Ok, so this is pretty much gold.
"Royals" gets an overhaul by three women of color actresses--Tess Paras, Haneefah Wood and Ayana Hampton--who use the song to comment on typecasting and representation in Hollywood.
"I'm gonna play the white girl's nerdy friend[Of course][Obviously]I'm gonna play the white girl's other friendWho is sassy[Omigod, you nailed that]"
In a funny but disturbingly true rendition, we are all reminded that gender and race ... Read More

Jessica Delfino is a regular riot. Well, maybe a little irregular, given that her comedy comes in the form of a tune provided by a guitar or a ukulele. As both a musician and a comedian, Delfino has two kinds of performances to put on seamlessly this Friday at the New York Comedy Festival event “Solid Gold,” taking place at 7:30 at the Breslin’s Liberty Hall at the Ace Hotel. She’s hilarious, but she is not to be laughed at: after killing ... Read More
