I Sold My Soul by Lovelyn

Don’t tell anyone I told you this, but I sold my soul to the devil to be able to cook. Yeah, that probably wasn’t the best exchange. First of all, I wasn’t specific enough. I wanted to be a world class chef with my own show on the Food Network. I don’t know if you’ve watched the Food Network lately, but I’m not on it.

Instead of magically knowing how to make perfect French sauces and rich desserts, I’m the casserole queen of my block. I can mix a can of soup, veggies and chicken in an oven-safe glass dish, stick it in the oven, and get perfect results every time. I don’t even like casseroles, but now I’m stuck bringing covered dishes to pot lucks and PTA meetings.

People eat my casseroles and ask me what the secret is for making them so perfectly every time. I simply shrug and wonder if I’ll still be making casseroles in Hell.

I obviously wasn’t thinking straight when I made the deal, but you know how the Devil is. Once you sign on the dotted line there’s no getting out. I wonder if Hell will be as hot as my kitchen is now that the oven is always on.

 

Untitled Entry by John “Cork” Corcoran

It was a dark and stormy night when I busted my sole while busting a move to “Soul Man” at a Seoul Hilton Karaoke night.

“What do you think of that as my lead sentence?” I asked Vincenta Faborgini, my hard working agent and confidante.

“In a word? ‘Overkill’,” she said, taking a drag of her Pall Mall.

“You can’t be a smoker,” I replied. “They won’t allow smokers in a winning Essay.” [Read more...]

4 Funny Female-Centric Web Series to Watch

One of the awesomest things about publishing FnS is that the funny often comes to me. We have recently had several web series sent in by show producers and publicists. Here are 4 of my favorites, I think you will like them, too.

words with girls series

Words With Girls

Brittani Nichols, the creator of Words With Girls submitted a comedy web series featuring herself and Hannah Hart of My Drunk Kitchen fame.  This mostly scripted but part-improv comedy webseries focuses on 20-somethings in Los Angeles. When they’re not busy navigating “the scene” or jumpstarting their careers, these women do what the young, gifted and bored do best: shoot the shit.

Blogologues

Webisoder at Lively Productions, Elaine White,  submitted Blogologues. The series concept is performing material found on the internet. They just happened to have re-inacted one of my all-time favorite humor posts on the planet, It’s Decorative Gourd Season, Motherf**kers from McSweeney’s. I hope they will pick a FnS post soon. I think Open Letter to The Creative Group would be fabulous (subtle hint). [Read more...]

Jessica Delfino Is Magic

Funny Woman Jessica Delfino

Jessica Delfino

Insight from Jessica especially for FnS viewers:

This “NEW” video version of the “MAGIC” song was made for a UK TV pilot featuring lots of demented comedians. It was filmed in Edinburgh, Scotland in Aug 2009 in two locations — one was the gorgeous Arthur’s Seat mini-mountain attraction that tons of tourist climb on a daily basis to get breath taking views of the ocean and surrounding city. Some climb drunk and die, but I was not one of them — not that year, anyway! Unlike American tourist attractions, there are no walls or fences around Arthur’s Seat (and no admission fee). You’re on your own, so don’t be a dumb ass, and wear sensible shoes to hike up the mound and not 6 inch high heels like I’m wearing in this video.

Urban Bicycling While Female – Beth Stelling

I’m having my first bout with “editor’s block” since I started FnS in 2008. Pretty sure it’s attributed to working on the new version of the site and not being able to concentrate on the current. After watching 30 minutes of videos that were a complete waste of time, I wrote Elizabeth McQuern who produces awesomeness in the form of shows and videos. She shared this tidbit, which is perfect for us. Thanks, Elizabeth!

I tend to call a lot of the quirky comedy out of Chicago like what Elizabeth McQuern produces, ”alt comedy” but she says not to call it that. So I’ll just call it funny.

Tig Notaro FnS Interview

Tig-Notaro

Tig Notaro is most well-known as “Officer Tig” on Comedy Central’s THE SARAH SILVERMAN PROGRAM. In previous years, Tig played “Rhoda” on the ABC sitcom IN THE MOTHERHOOD (with Megan Mullally and Cheryl Hines), “Leigh-Roy” on Comedy Central’s critically acclaimed DOG BITES MAN (with Zach Galifianakis), and had her own half-hour special, COMEDY CENTRAL PRESENTS TIG. She has also performed on NBC’s LAST COMIC STANDING, ABC’s JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE, NBC’s LAST CALL WITH CARSON DALY, ABC’s COMICS UNLEASED and Comedy Central’s PREMIUM BLEND.

Tig’s debut album “Good One” is available at iTunes and Amazon (there is a free sample track I recommend on that link) and you can also go to www.tignotaro.com for more Tig stuff. See Tig perform at The Caledonia Lounge this Thursday, August 25, in Athens, GA. You can listen to episodes of Tig’s podcast Professor Blastoff and follow Professor Blastoff on twitter.


Your CD Good One, which is hilarious, debuted at #2 in the US and #1 in Canada. And you were immediately #4 on iTunes Comedy top 10. Can you believe it?

i really can’t. and to celebrate, i went mansion shopping immediately.

You used to be a music/concert promoter, and have done some singing on Funny or Die. Can we expect any Tig music CDs anytime soon?

well, i’ve heard a rumor that taylor dayne would like to work with me someday, so ideally, we’ll be doing a duet album together.

You are often in lineups or podcasts where you are the only female. What’s that like? [Read more...]

Cue Black Girls – Zollar and Threatte

cue black girls

 

Walk right when you done wrong from Cue Black Girls on Vimeo.

We know you done did it. We saw you in them handcuffs, so don’t even try to throw a jacket over your fool head as a disguise- child PLEASE! Who do you think you are fooling? Nobody. (but you might if you try these techniques)

Cue Black Girls (Keisha Zollar and Renee Threatte) – well you can blame Anne Hathaway for that one. And let me just establish it’s “Cue” not “Cute”…this isn’t porn, my mom watches the show. Anyway back to Anne Hathaway- I heart her. I have watched every single good (“Brokeback Mountain”, “Rachel Getting Married”) and crappy (ahem- “Bride Wars”) movie that she has been in. So when “Love and Other Drugs” came out I bought my ticket and plunked down to watch “Princess Diaries” have lots of sex with the “Donnie Darko”. Terrible. Just….terrible. Cliches all over the place from her dying, to the token minority sidekick coffee shop worker, and lame brother of the male lead with all the usual fat hatred jokes plugged into the necessary spots. But the cherry on top were the tender moments- where they added a track with some black lady wailing in the background like she had just caught the spirit at church. Oh lawd. [Read more...]

American H.O.A.R by “Victoria Jackson”

American H.O.A.R : Spreading the Awareness – by “Victoria Jackson”
by Traci Foust and Iraqi Vet, Tyler Jones

Hi everyone! As you all know, this “Independence” Day kicks off the tour of my first presidential campaign: Hand standing up for the Obligation of American Restoration (HOAR) My mission is the same as it has been since the first time I voted way back in 2000, to keep my country from the disabling grips of communism and homosexuality. So far my campaign trail has lead me to many wonderful folks who are just as worried as I am about socialism and gay things like everyone having access to health care, fire stations and marriage.  Last week I stopped in Tempe Arizona, and aside from triple digit temperatures, all the New Age Jesus haters in Sedona and illegal Mexicans setting fire to practically the entire state, my trip has been great so far.  I even had the chance to sit down with retired military personnel Tyler Jones. Tyler is a young outspoken man who is just as angry about the wrong turn our country has taken as I am. I could totally tell by his numerous tattoos and piercings, this man is a jaded veteran, furious and crude in the aftermath of the treatment he and his comrades received from liberal haters and the misguiding of the “Commander in Chief”.  Plus, our initials rhyme which I believe may be a sign from the Lord that it’s ok to talk to him.

VJ: Mr. Jones it’s so nice of you to speak with me today and answer my questions. Considering how confusing life must be for someone who fought so hard to free our nation of terrorism only to come back to the states and find the real terror has just begun right here at home.

TJ: Uh huh. Thanks Vickie. Not exactly sure what you mean by the real terror at home, though.

VJ: Well, let’s begin with the gay agenda smokescreen the Obama Administration provides by means of supporting  “don’t ask don’t tell”. When I first heard this phrase I was all, Oh, so this is something good because my youth minister said this a lot at summer Bible camp, but when I found out what this whole agenda was really about I was like, Gross! It’s basically just an excuse for “women” to indulge in boy things like flying helicopters and wearing combat boots. An obvious ploy for the encouragement of lesbianism. It’s such a disgrace to real women everywhere.

TJ: A Disgrace? You mean like those frilly bows you insist on wearing? The ones that make you look like more of a moron than even Sarah Palin? [Read more...]
