Breaking Up: Now Slightly Easier To Do – Kimberly Welsh

Kimberly

As a public service to every perfectly wonderful girl who’s ever been dumped by someone who didn’t know how good s/he had it, here’s a handy template you can use to say farewell without accidentally humiliating or degrading yourself. Not that you would ever do that…

Dear [Momma’s Boy/Snugglekins/Signor Berlusconi/Buttface],

Since you broke up with me via [text/telepathic communication/my favorite barista/monk-e-mail], I’ve had some time to reflect on our time together. I’ve asked myself all the usual questions, like [“Is there someone else?”/”When will I get my Xbox back?”/”Who’s Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses?”/”WHY GOD WHY?!?!?”], and I’ve been able to sort most of it out in my head. I wanted to send you one last email to explain my feelings and hopefully offer you some [closure/pot/breakup sex/time share properties] as well.

I’m sure you’ve realized by now that when you dumped me, you did so under the mistaken impression that [I’m crazy/you’re sane/Ayn Rand made some valid points/that bartender genuinely wanted to sleep with you]. How [embarrassing/disconcerting/alarming/incomprehensible] for you, especially now that you’ve been [indicted/castrated/put on the no-fly list/outed on “People of Wal-Mart”]. Nonetheless, I was really hoping we could [clear the air/fight to the death/emigrate to opposite ends of the planet/return that baby we adopted]. I just think it would be better for [me/you/that baby we adopted/your mother] that way. So I guess I’ll start… [Read more...]

Laughing Skull Kicks It all the Way Off – Jacki Schklar

  

Laughing Skull Comedy Festival Kick-Off at Clermont Lounge

Laughing Skull Comedy Festival participants let loose on The Clermont Lounge last night for their official Kick-Off Party. For those who do not know, as I didn’t, The Clermont is a dive bar with the reputation for being “the place where strippers go to die”. There were limitations on what I could shoot in the club because of house rules. And well, because some things are better left to your imagination.

I asked Mia Jackson (Atlanta) what she thought of the party locale. “Interesting place to be networking, around old titties and breasteses. I’m used to a breast free environment. My asthma is acting up with all the smoke, and I think old lopsided breasts must be an allergen.” [Read more...]

Producers and women in comedy Ruth Selwyn (Tel Aviv), Jane Postlethwaite (Brighton, UK) and Jacki Schklar (Atlanta) discuss making funny videos and interactive content for a female audience. Ruth is creator of the famed Lizzy the Lezzy animations, Jane produces social media content under the guise of StylistBrighton and Jacki is publisher of Funnynotslutty.com.

Ruth:  Jacki, I have been meaning to ask you, don’t you want to be funny and slutty sometimes?

Jacki:   Excuse me Ruth, but don’t you live in the Holy Land? I did not think you would speak of such things.

Ruth:  Such a typical straight woman, answering a question with a question. I’ll take your obvious evasiveness to mean yes, you would like to be slutty sometimes too. I would too actually, especially if I was tall, blonde and beautiful like Jane – ever thought of showing us your cleavage in a video Jane? [Read more...]

Karen Hilton – Putting it Out There

Interview by Gabriella Giarrano. Photos by Jacki Schklar.
When I first saw Atlanta comedienne Karen Hilton perform, it was like having a feather thrown at you after being pelted with rocks; surprising and a breath of fresh air amidst the many louder more in your face comics. Her style is effortless and easy, and that’s probably because her attitude is the same.

G:Your brand of stand-up is a quiet humor – some may even call you the Eeyore of comedy; more monotone and yet always true. If you had to describe your style in 3 words, what would they be? 

K: Please listen close.  [Read more...]
