Morning, #TeamBlaria! Hope y’all had a wonderful weekend. Mine was cool. I was very lucky to get booked last minute to MC for the very funny Anthony Jeselnik. I know some of you complained about me mentioning this last minute, but I didn’t get booked until Friday morning after all the shows were already sold out, so hopefully, next time, I’ll booked a little quicker in advance. Anyhoo, enough about me. It’s about today’s guest, the very funny Calise Hawkins, whom y’all might recognize most from her stand up appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. She ventured out in the torrential rain to record with me two weeks ago and I’m glad she did because I had a wonderful time talking with her and would have loved to chat more, but she had a meeting to get to. So check out our fun convo after the jump!
Morning! Hope you don’t have a case of the Mondays, but if you do, I don’t blame you. Mondays are nothing more than a big pile of gorilla doo doo. Am I right?! Anyway, we are offish in the thick of spring, which means we’re all trying to get summer sex and luckily for you, I have plenty of the Blaria Podcast for you to listen while you’re sweating on the treadmill. Today, I’m chatting with fellow comedian George Gordon, who runs on of the best shows in NYC. In fact, it’s so dope that the Afterlife comedy show is moving to Union Hall starting in the summer. Pretty maj! So before the big monthly show kicks off, GG, came by the IAC office so we can chat about comedy and other fun shiz. Full disclosure: this episode quickly became one of my fav that I’ve done so far! So check it out after the jump! Whoop!
Happy Tuesday, y’all! I’m not going to lie; I’m all out of sorts because I watched last night’s reunion/season finale of RuPaul’s Drage Race, so I’m a lil out of sorts aka covered in glitter and worrying about my tuck game even though I’m sans a peen to tuck. Anyhoo, let’s get to the matter at hand, which is today’s guest, comedian and podcaster, Josh Homer. We’ve been buds for a while, so it was only a matter of time before I got him on the show. We discussed comedy, how he met his wife, and cray cray stuff like bestiality. Shit gets really real. So peep our convo after the jump!
Happy Thursday, y’all! I’m back this week with a second episode of the Blaria Podcast. Whoo-hoo! This time around I’m chopping it up with bi-coastal comic and TV personality Michelle Buteau. This has been a podcast epi months in the making as we both have been busy, but the stars finally aligned and she joined me at my day job (seriously, how have I not been fired yet?) to talk about her career, her childhood and our love of pop culture. Hands down, this is one of the most enjoyable times I’ve had recording the Blaria poddie. See why after the jump!
#TeamBlaria! Howdy! Hope you had a good weekend. Mine was a’ight. I was sick for most of it, so I was chilling with Kleenex and DayQuil the whole time, but that’s my cross to bear. Melodramatic, much? Anyhoo, this week, I’m dropping two Blaria poddies, so today is the first one. Whoo-hoo! today, I’m chatting with the lovely and talented Kate Berlant, who I just had the pleasure of performing with a couple of weekends ago at the Bridgetown Comedy Festival. She’s very funny, a little left of center and also interesting to talk to. We chatted it up about her childhood, her opening up to the world, comedy, and other stuff. Peep the convo after the jump!
#TeamBlaria! I’m back in the lovely land of NYC! How I missed y’all while I was away in Portland, OR at the the Bridgetown Comedy Festival. The fest was great. I did fun shows, checked out awesome comics like Dana Gould, Ron Funches, and Cameron Esposito; and took full advantage of farting into furniture cushions that don’t belong to me. #Success. Anyhoo, a new week is here, so I’m dropping some new Blaria. Today, I’m bringing an episode of the Blaria Podcast with guest Kevin Barnett. I wanted to have some new writing for y’all, but I didn’t get into town until 10pm last night and while I was in Portland, I was busy doing shows and writing assignments for Glamour.com, so alas, I gots nada. New written post will go up tomorrow. In the meantime check out my convo with one of the stars of MTV2′s Guy Code Kevin B. as we discuss how he got the nickname “Fat boy,” doing comedy on the road (including shitting on people, not literally, but verbally) and dating. Check out our convo after the jump!
Happy Wednesday, y’all! I know I normally post my podcasts on Thursday, but I’m going to be flying to Portland, OR, most of tomorrow as I’ll be performing at the 6th Annual Bridgetown Comedy Festival. Whoop! I had a blast last yurr and I’m hoping this year will be just as good if not better. Anyway, enough about me. It’s all about today’s guest, Chris Lamberth, a funny comedian, whom I have known for a while. Like most of my relationships with comics, we met in person, but thanks to Gchat, our relationship has thrived. But I wanted some more human interaction with Chris, I had him come by my day job, so us two movie nerds could geek out in person. I swear, this podcast is just an excuse for me to see people I rarely see in person. Thanks, technology! Anyhoo, check out the convo after the jump!
Happy Thursday, y’all! After a week off, I’m back with another epi of the Blaria Podcast. Today, I’m chatting with one of the busiest comedians/writer I know, Guy Branum. He and I met via the interwebs a year and a half ago, but didn’t really hang out in person until he got hired to write for the New York based TV show Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell and this podcast is the result. So check out or convo after the jump!
Hol to the ler, y’all! I here with a special Tuesday edition of the Blaria Podcast. Since I was lazy last week and didn’t post any podcasts, I’m posting two this week, Sabrina today and then another epi on Thursday, so yay! Anyhoo, I’m very happy to have Sabrina on the poddie since her and I had only hung out at shows where we were both on the lineup. So she took time out of her business schedule, which includes being a talking head on MTV’s new show Failosophy, to come into my office and chat it up. So check out our convo after the jump!
Yo, yo! Happy Thursday! Here’s a brand new epi of the Blaria Podcast. Hope y’all are doing well. Real quick before I continue: is anyone else annoyed that Scandal is on a long ass hiatus? I mean, it’s been almost three weeks since I’ve seen Kerry Washington’s lips quiver like she’s a runaway slave. That’s is unacceptable. Anyway, I love the show and I want it back in my life. You know what else I love? Having today’s guest, Rose Surnow, on the podcast. We had a blast hanging out and taking our relationship out of the world of Gchat and into the physical world as she dropped by my office to chat. So check out our convo after the jump!
