Lean Over: Women, Work, and Women's Work

I wrote a book with Alyssa Wolff.  You should buy it!  It’s only $3.99, which is less than the price of a large iced coffee, and that’s mostly just water!

I'm Headlining Carolines Tomorrow

adamconover:

Guess what, comedy fans? I’m headlining Carolines on Broadway tomorrow night at 7:30 PM. Carolines is hands down one of the best comedy clubs in the country and I couldn’t be more thrilled to be going long there.

Carolines was cool enough to let me pick my openers myself, so with me will be three of my absolute favorite comics in New York City — Brian Frange, Alison Leiby, and Katie Hannigan! These are three of the comics who make me laugh the hardest and I know you’re going to love them.

Tickets are normally $20, but you can get in for only $5 if you use the code “BREAKOUT” when buying tickets online or over the phone. (There is a two-drink minimum. But let’s be honest, you were going to be drinking on Tuesday night anyway.)

If you like anything I do or am you should come to this show. I guarantee you’ll have a great time.

I had a great time telling jokes for Eater's new video project, "We Love Food!"  Click the link to see both the national and NYC episodes and check back every month for more culinary news mockery from me and these other hilarious comics.

Featuring at Carolines 4/2!

Next Tuesday, 4/2 I’ll be featuring at Carolines.  Good friend and talented comic Adam Conover (Best Week Ever, College Humor) is headlining.  Make a reservation now!

I was on the super fun podcast Sit and Bitch, hosted by Matteo Lane and Abigoliah Schamaun. Things started out a little girly—talking about weddings and Pinterest—but then we got to my favorite topics like comedy, murder, and complaining about loud chewers.

Seeing as we’ve never been fans of anything that adds inches to our waists (okay, except maybe carrot cake, wine, bagels, bourbon, cheese, pizza, cheese pizza, Cadbury Crème Eggs, nachos, bacon, fries, and white bread), it shouldn’t come as a surprise that initially we wanted nothing to do with the peplum trend.  But, if we can let Katy Perry and natural peanut butter (ugh, stirring) infiltrate our lives, then there’s probably room for a peplum or two.
Assuming you don’t want to waste the results of your month-long cleanse, stay away from styles that add bulk and instead opt for peplums that fall closer to the body.  It’s the difference between a ruffle and a structured panel around your waist.  It’s Fettuccine versus Farfalle.  Which pasta shape would you rather have wrapped around what should be the slimmest part of your body?  Obviously Fettuccine — we would wrap ourselves in that.  Maybe with a little butter, some parsley, a nice white wine sauce.  And clams.  And fresh Parmesan.  And a loaf of garlic bread on the side.
Sorry, we’re having cleanse-induced carbohydrate hallucinations.  We’re on day two.
