The Friday Post.
Okay the Hasan Minhaj thing! I've been thinking about this a lot lately and I think we need to actually relegate stand up comedy to like, dinner theater, county fairs, and sideshow attractions in the desert. At some point in the last 30 years (i.e. my life, everything is about me), we culturally decided to take stand-ups seriously and now Joe Rogan and Jon Stewart are like warring factions of US political ideology. Anyone who has ever met a stand-up knows they are only marginally more tolerable than people with political ambitions. CHEAPEN THE CRAFT. Bring back slap stick idc. You ever see Mr. Bean have to answer for his lil jokes? Do whatever it takes. Save the planet!
the ashton stans (?) in these comments 🥴
As a publicist, I can tell you that the problem is...celebs are cheap and never want to keep anyone on retainer!
Ashton and Mila'a non-apology acknowledgment made me so uncomfortable. Like they were mad at us for making them have to get on camera without praise and money involved
BEST HEADLINE EVER I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS
“The fandom imploded” being fans thinking Timmy dating Kylie is a conspiracy and others fans believing his own free will is 😆
Miss Velma Kelly in an act of desperation!!! Yes ugh I think about that line at least once a week
“The universe warned me not to work in the World Trade Center. The universe felt the same level of urgency that I devote my life to Timothée Chalamet.” OKAY
hullo ms. hunter did you see the jeremy strong williamsburg apartment listing... nary a hint of brown i was so disturbed
i can't stop laughing.. there is so much to chew on with madam club c. nvm the rest, i can't get past 'financial direction i did not want', in the same sentence as the money being 'exceptional'... i am reminded of hilary duff's 'if you can't do the math then get out of the equation' lmao truly flabbergasted. and to think i may have been in the same screening room as fabled club c at toronto film.. actors on strike but that would have been a sighting if there ever was one..
Honorable mention for Carey O’Donnell’s reel as Drew’s publicist 💀 https://www.instagram.com/reel/CxOVeXzPN8r/?igshid=MzRlODBiNWFlZA==
Well, Jann Wenner can fuck right off, and when he's finished fucking off he can fuck off some more. Ugh.
I was SO hoping we would have Morning Show chat. yayyyy
I love your writing in the way that i loved "confessions of a shopaholic"...both cover topics that I never thought I could care so much about: fashion, gossip, books about make up companies (?). I might have to embrace this curiosity and go down this curiosity up to and including reading the book about the make up company I've never heard of before the Tiktok book review. Will report my findings ASAP.
when i saw the headline for this post i thought of that Hasan Minhaj piece in the New Yorker
I would be interested in an exceptionally well paying job that would lead me into a questionable financial direction, just saying if anyone is aware of such a posting on Indeed.
