Nice & Easy

Allow me to re-introduce myself. My name is Blaria, Blar to the I, A. Okay, okay. This was PSA for people who try to spit fire when writing in WordPress. You just end up mangling Jay-Z lyrics. My apols, Hov.

Anyway, welcome to Blaria (aka Black Daria), folks. This is the home base for me to be sarcastic and snarky and sassy (watch out every Black female actress, I’m gunning for your position as “best black friend” to a “Zooey Deschanel” type in an upcoming TV sitcom/movie). So come back here every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday to read about what melts my butter (that’s a good thing) and what chaps my hide (that’s a bad thing because I put on two coats of cocoa butter and I still got chapped).

Ok, y’all. Hope you enjoyed this post because this is as nice and easy as I will be on this blog. See you on Friday!

So I typed “Black Friday Black Women” into Google so I could, hopefully, get a picture of a Black woman with the words “Black Friday” and this is what popped up. Thx, Google! #trifling

According to Serial Optimist, NYC-based stand up-comedian and writer Phoebe Robinson “is brilliant and able to critique some really complex concepts in a sentence or two. Bask in it, people.” Which is precisely what The Huffington Post is trying to get people to do when it listed her as one of “18 Funny Women You Should Be Following On Twitter,” but with the way things are going, it seems the place to follow her is on TV. Phoebe is a writer for MTV’s Girl Code and most recently co-hosted an episode of the new series Raising McCain, wrote on the VH1 pilot Chateau Buteau, appeared on FX’s Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell and Comedy Central’s Broad City, was a panelist on VH1’s Big Morning Buzz, and has been featured on several talking head shows for Pivot TV, VH-1, and the TV Guide Channel such as 100 Shows to See Before You Die, 25 Biggest Reality Star Blunders, and 40 Greatest Hip Hop Songs. When not on television, Phoebe’s a writer for and contributes to The New York Times. Her blog Blaria (aka Black Daria) was picked up by The Huffington Post and has been featured on their website. She has also been published in Time Out NY, The NY Post, and The Smoking Jacket. Phoebe has also made her mark in the world of stand up. She was a finalist in NBC’s Stand Up for Diversity competition and was a part of their 2011-2012 USA college tour. Since the tour, she has performed in the Bridgetown Comedy Festival, the Eugene Mirman Festival, the New York Underground Comedy Festival, the All Jane No Dick Festival, SF Sketchfest, the Women in Comedy Festival, the Brooklyn Comedy Festival, and the New York Comedy Festival. Phoebe has also branched out into radio as she has been on Sirius XM’s Raw Dog Comedy, Canada’s CBC Radio, and bitch magazine’s podcast.
