Laurie Kilmartin on parenthood, losing her father, and her new SeeSo comedy special

Comedian and writer Laurie Kilmartin is probably best known as one of the finalists on the 7th season of Last Comic Standing. She has also written 2 books and has been nominated for a Primetime Emmy award. Last year, Laurie's 83 year old father was diagnosed with cancer. She had to take time off from her dream job as a staff writer on Conan O’Brian’s late night show and flew up to visit her father in Northern California as much as she could. During the months of her father's declining health, she took to Twitter writing jokes about her experience of losing a parent to cancer.

She talks to Jesse about her new SeeSo comedy special called 45 Jokes About My Dead Dad. She gets candid about what it’s like to lose a parent and how instrumental Twitter was in coming to grips during the process.

You can find more information about how to stream her special here.

Erin Gibson and Bryan Safi on their new TV Land show Throwing Shade and how to be funny without being offensive

Erin Gibson and Bryan Safi are comedians, writers, actors, and podcast hosts. They met in 2010 as writers for Current TV, a news channel that was created by Al Gore and Al Jazeera. Erin covered feminist issues while Bryan covered the LGBTQ beat. In 2011, when Current TV closed its doors, Erin and Bryan knew that they still had more to say so they decided to start the Throwing Shade podcast hosted by Maximum Fun.

In studio with Jesse, they discuss their origin story, the differences between making podcasts and TV, and how to have a sincere and funny opinion without being offensive.

You can watch Throwing Shade on TV Land every Tuesday evening at 10:30/9:30c.

Throwing Shade's Bryan Safi and Erin Gibson take over Pop Rocket as part of MaxFun's #GreatSwitcheroo.

With Bryan Safi, Erin Gibson, Drew Droege and Jessica Jardine.

Every week we start the show by taking a question from a listener about our own pop culture tastes. This week: What piece of culture (movie, song, TV show) do you most find yourself introducing new people to?
Bryan Safi - Karina Longworth's You Must Remember This podcast. Especially the series of episodes about Charles Manson's Hollywood.
Erin Gibson - Brock O'Hurn on Instagram
Drew Droege - The documentary Finders Keeper
Jessica Jardine - The Russ Meyer / Roger Ebert movie Beyond the Valley of the Dolls
Thanks to Jamie Tyler in the Pop Rocket Facebook group for that question.

That’s My Jam:
Bryan Safi - Judy Garland and Liza Minnelli performing He's Got the Whole World In His Hands
Erin Gibson - Strange Things Happen Everyday by Sister Rosetta Tharpe
Drew Droege - Let's All Chant by The Michael Zager Band
Jessica Jardine - How Deep Is Your Love by Calvin Harris and The Disciples

Each week we’ll add everyone’s jams to this handy Spotify playlist.

Throwing Shade Ep. 112 - Happy Thanksgivukkah, Curvy Girl Lingerie, Best Gay Advice, Oprah

| 0 comments

Happy Thanksgivukkah! For the first time in 70,000 years Hannukah starts the same day as Thanksgiving! Also, for the first time in 70,000 years, Erin and Bryan take a look at what they're thankful for. But don't worry,they're still plenty shady. Bryan talks about Ask Amy - an advice column that gave the absolute best advice ever for a parent with a gay child. Meanwhile, Erin looks at the fallout of a plus-size lingerie company that used non-airbrushed models.  
Just remember this. When you're sitting with your family at dinner this week, don't force anyone to like the Matrix.

They two speech-imparingly discuss the October 26th protest against Saudi driving bans, Australian luggage handlers taping "I AM GAY" on luggage, and our obligatory mention of Mary Jo Buttafuoco.
