Sup, #TeamBlaria? Sorry I was MIA last week. I was in LA for an audition, so fingers crossed that I get what I tried out for. Now, I’m back with a brand new epi of the podcast and for the very first time, I’m interviewing someone who works behind the scenes in the comedy world. You may not know Julie Miller by name, but you have probably seen her work as she has worked for MTV, E!, Above Average, Comedy Central, OWN, the web series Little Horribles, etc. Whew! I’m just getting tired listing all her credits. Anyway, the point is she’s killing it in the comedy world and is helping put out work that we’ve been laughing at for years. So yay! Thankfully, she had some spare time to join me on the podcast, so we could catch up.

In this episode, we talk about working at SNL and for Oprah’s network, Little Horribles, and out differing opinions on Queen B aka Beyonce. It’s a good convo and we had a lot of fun, so kick back, press play and enjoy!

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.
