Last week, Sean Hannity went on his show on Fox News to discuss the meeting between New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and rapper/mogul/husband to Beyonce, Jay Z. Strangely enough, Hannity doesn’t introduce Jay Z how we would best know him, but as “A guy that admits that he sold crack and was a drug dealer and actually shot somebody." Luckily, Jon Stewart and Jessica Williams exist to call out Hannity on his bullshit — and they did just that in last ... Read More
Jessica Williams has a gift when it comes to appealing to the everyday feminist. Her segment from last Thursday's episode of The Daily Show highlights the issue of catcalling and street harassment. Showing how completely ordinary harassment is, Williams brings a camera along on her way to work. She gets catcalled by construction workers and a security guard. Just like Williams, getting the horny clap of approval from any guy does not improve my day, it actually ... Read More
Apparently some guys still think it's okay to clap at women on the street, as if it's a classier way to catcall. "It's not harassment! It's appreciation!" they cry. Well, we won't accept that answer and we call shenanigans. Jessica Williams is all too familiar with this brand of bullshit and on The Daily Show last week, she made it known this behavior is unacceptable.   "Our walk to work is not there for him to comment on. It's not a red carpet, ... Read More
Clear your plans, set your DVRs and pop some popcorn. Hillary’s on "The Daily Show" tonight. Airing at 11 pm EST, Clinton and Jon Stewart will discuss her new book, Hard Choices, and hopefully we’ll catch some hints about a 2016 Presidential run (fingers crossed!!!).   It’s super strategic that Clinton is appearing on Stewart’s Emmy award-winning show; according to a study done by the Brookings Institution, it is one of the most ...

The terrific Jessica Williams appeared on Girls last night. This interview first appeared in Feb/Mar '13 of BUST Magazine with Jason Schwartzman. Subscribe Now! For most of us, our first job after college involves trying to keep up with people older and more seasoned than we are, adjusting to paying bills, and stumbling into adulthood. That’s pretty much been the experience of 23-year-old comic actress Jessica Williams. But as the newest, youngest, and ... Read More
  In the wake of Barack Obama’s “State of the Union” address, it’s important to consider the State of the Uterus. With impeding abortion regulations, limitations on birth control access, and proposed rape audits, our uteri stand at the forefront of one of our country’s most contentious battles.    Thank goodness that the esteemed Madame Uterus graced us with her own speech streamed last night at LadyPartsJustice.com ...

In the wake of recent uproar over the ridiculousness of sexy women’s Halloween costumes, hilariously awesome comedian Kristen Schaal made an appearance as The Daily Show's Senior Women's Issues Correspondent to discuss the new trend, but more importantly, to unveil her own line of super sexy Halloween costumes—one for men and one for women.  While the costume for guys is certainly a winner, (“Sexy Hollywood Producer Who Hires ...

Everyone has been talking about 16-year-old Malala Yousafzai and her outspoken advocacy of women and education (we certainly have been). Tuesday night, the youngest Nobel Peace Prize nominee went on television to speak on one of America’s greatest and prestigious stages—that’s right, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. And so commenced the first time I’ve wept while watching Comedy Central (aside from whenever I watch 50 First Dates). Being in ... Read More
  Who you gonna call? Filibuster! Or Kristen Schaal, because this woman is a filibustering machine. Last night's Daily Show had Kristen satirically riffing the most prominent women in Texas this week - Wendy Davis and Jodie Laubenberg. Schaal didn’t equate Laubenberg to Davis, but proclaimed that Laubenberg was hands down more impressive! Say what?     Equipped with her hot pink Mizuno Wave Riders, a portable bathroom, and a chest ... Read More
Watching The Daily Show has become a nonnegotiable part of my morning ritual. I roll out of bed, get the coffee brewing, appease my cats with some Fancy Feast, and turn to Jon Stewart for my daily reality check. This morning was no exception.  As I was watching, happily chowing down on some oatmeal, my gag reflex was suddenly tripped as a white-haired old gentlemen appeared on the screen beside Samantha Bee. It was Kingsley Browne! The ridiculously-named ... Read More
