Although there are literally thousands of movies, almost every time my high school friends and I decide to watch something at a sleepover, we’ve picked from the same few films. Find yourself doing the same? Why not try something new.
These are my new sleepover favorites—with an effort to exclude the cliché ones (see: Mean Girls and Clueless) that you and your pals are already watching anyway.

The comedy goddesses have answered our prayers and it has been done: Maya Rudolph did a Rachel Dolezal impression. The actress blessed us with the impersonation recently on Late Night with Seth Meyers and killed it.

In case you’ve somehow successfully avoided the media frenzy around her, Rachel Dolezal is a woman who was born to white parents… but has been saying she’s black for around ten years. Maya bears a striking resemblance to her. Read More

Get ready for it; we’re about to see a bunch of white males scrambling for the Late Show spot now that David Letterman has announced his retirement. The current top contenders include Jon Stewart, Jay Leno, Craig Ferguson, and Conan O’Brien. *yawn*
Men have traditionally hosted late night television because of the outdated gendered blocking of Television viewing times. Read More

If Tina Fey’s new NBC show, and Kristen Schaal’s upcoming ABC series weren’t enough exciting lady-centric television news for you, fear not. Deadline has just reported that Saturday Night Live alumna Maya Rudolph is developing a variety show pilot with NBC!
Rudolph’s last television endeavor, NBC’s Up All Night, on which she co-starred with Christina Applegate and Will Arnett, was cancelled in February. Rudolph then indicated that instead of another sitcom, she was interested in pursuing a variety show. Read More
Last Sunday, Carol Burnett finally received her Mark Twain Prize for American Comedy, and none other than Tina Fey was there to present it to her. Oh yeah, and Amy Poehler, Martin Short, Lucie Arnaz, Maya Rudolph, and Julie Andrews also came out to honor the great lady comic.
Amy Poehler took on the role of Burnett’s disgruntled and overworked assistant, coming on stage to shout, “Carol broke the glass ceiling — as well as the glass table with a baseball bat. Read More

Maya Rudolph, former BUST cover girl and eternal Princess of your heart, has a gift for you! She teamed up with comedian Danny McBride and GQ to recreate shots from the beloved Internet k-hole, Awkward Family Photos. Let's call it an act of whimsy.

The "Oh God why" shot:

This weekend’s episode of SNL was perhaps the best of all season, with a lineup that seemed ripped from the pages of BUST (plus plenty of killer cameos…and one by Bill O'Reilly?) and a distinctly female energy (no doubt stemming from host Maya Rudolph’s presence) that felt like a breath of fresh air—or a gasp for fresh air after laughing so hard at Rudolph and Kristen Wiig’s frozen-chicken-fondling, golf-cart-driving, accent-switching antics in the “Secret Showcase” sketch.

The folks over at Saturday Night Live must really love BUST Magazine! The host of this weekend's comedy sketch show is none other than yours truly. Sort of. Although the hilarious staff here is not actually hosting SNL, our current cover lady Maya Rudolph is, and the musical guest is (drum roll please) Sleigh Bells! Not only did Sleigh Bells land a spot as our featured review in the Feb/March issue, we've got a brand-spankin' new interview with Alexis Krauss in our upcoming issue. Read More

I'm really loving the new TV Series, "Up All Night." I think it sort of has the potential to be kind of a 30 Rock, but about parenting. The show has a fantastic cast: Christina Applegate, demonstrating her great comedic abilities; Mr. Amy Poehler, Will Arnett; and our beloved Maya Rudolph as a sort of cross between Oprah and Tracy Jordan. And the fact that the show is written by a woman doesn't hurt, either.
To get a sense of her character's nuttiness, check out this clip here. Read More
