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.
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...]
Laura Prangley sent us her new sketch, Wedding Season Workout. The idea was based around the fact that she has caught 13 bouquets at weddings. It features a ton of hilarious NYC comedians.
Janet Silverman is, in fact, a brilliant actor and writer but this is a true story. Names have NOT been changed to protect the innocent. Hopefully people can really relate to this experience, laugh at her insecurities, and share this like crazy so that Janet can find her Prince Charming and/or future murderer!
SERIOUSLY. If you know British Daniel: firstname.lastname@example.org

So, we’re we’ll into the thick of summer (and that sounds disgusting), and well into half of 2013. If 2013 has not been going according to plan – didn’t lose those ten pounds? Haven’t found a husband/significant other/pet to alleviate your loneliness? Haven’t kicked your wine for dinner habit? Instead of beating yourself up, why not CELEBRATE it?
1. Go to your favorite bar in your sweatpants. OWN IT.
2. Eat an entire bag of pita chips because IT IS DELICIOUS.
3. Skip the workout for a shopping work out.
4. Delete your OK Cupid profile even though you haven’t met anybody. YOU’RE IN A RELATIONSHIP WITH YOURSELF.
5. Make an entire dinner out of the microwave. Carcinogenic? Maybe. Delicious? Potentially? Easy? YES.
There’s an ENTIRE MUSICAL this summer in NYC dedicated to celebrating your mess and not having it together. It’s at the NY International Fringe Festival. For more info, be sure to follow Molly on twitter (@MMRNeedsAMan), like her on Facebook, and check out www.mmrneedsaman.com.

When did you first realize you were hilarious?
I think in kindergarten I used to do an impression of my school principal, the ancient Miss Carol (sp)?
Be honest, how rough were the first open mics?/ what was your worst stage experience?
They were okay, those first ones. Up and down. But I don’t remember them being devastating. My worst stage experience, if not one of my worst, was when I’d been doing stand-up for about a year. I took Amtrak to Philly and did a show at the Taproom, I believe, in Ambler, PA. (I think these are accurate names, but, who knows)? Anyway, I was wearing a cute, casual cotton summer skirt, and doing my act, and the audience starting murmuring, then talking, then heckling, and then things started hitting the stage. So, here’s what I did: I said, “Thank you, good night,” and left the stage. I said “Thank you”!!!! Jesus. Then, my best friend, Kathy, who still lived in Philly, at the time, and who is still my best friend, and I drove to a Friendly’s and ate something, and I cried. She wrote me a note and drew a picture on a napkin, and I kept it for years, until I think it may have gotten lost in a move in the past few years. It said, “You are very funny. If you ever need to know just call me, and I will tell you.”
How long did it take you to find your comedic voice, and how did you find it?
My comedic voice is really who I am, and I think it didn’t take me too long to relax into it on stage. And as I change, it changes (I hope).
What do you want the future to hold for Cathy Ladman?
A lot more acting, in TV and film. A lot more employment in those venues. And stand-up in theaters.
What would you tell your 18-year-old self?
Do it. Travel. Take the time to explore. Don’t doubt yourself. You have all you need. You are enough. Accept yourself.
Slutty but Funny
Natalie Wall likes to think she is a female comedian but the reality is she’s a NYC girl trying to make it big. If she’s not writing in her blog, Awkward Sex and the City, she’s spraying vanilla icing on a mini donut or thinking of ways to kill Dora from Dora the Explorer. Help her, humor her and fall in love with the pale pasty princess straight out of Compton (not really).
