  Margaret Cho is the queen of our hearts. Seriously, this past BUSTie can do no wrong. In addition to her comedy touring, filming Drop Dead Diva, and making appearances on everything from xoJane to The View, Margaret has taken on a new and original web-series. Cho is partnering up with two other fantastic ladies, who I totally fantasize about inviting over to play Cards Against Humanity and get day drunk with me: Selene Luna and Yvette ... Read More
Recently, there’s been an all-out Twitter war between two of our favorite feminist women: Jezebel writer and comedian Lindy West, and BUST columnist and comedian Roseanne Barr.   The debate focuses on the subject of rape jokes—when it’s appropriate to tell them, and what the appropriate response to them should be.   The flames started after Lindy posted a story on Jezebel, called, “If Comedy Has No Lady Problem, Why Am I Getting ...

When the words “Feminist Make-Up tutorial” sashayed onto my Tumblr dashboard, I took the delicious piece of click-bait in order to find out how to fight misogyny while looking fabulous. Sure enough, it taught me how to put my Smash the Patriarchy #2 lipstick to good use, AND it became an instant favorite amongst my peers.

Remember the dreaded “humor gap” idea about men always being funnier than women? And that bogus pseudo-science Vanity Fair piece on the topic? Oy vey. I wish that was the only case of weird dudes telling the world women aren’t funny, but alas, the shoddily lobbed insults keep coming. If only we had a sweet comedienne to put this shit show to rest. OH WAIT, WE DO. It’s Ellie Kemper from Bridesmaids and The Office, hey girl! This week ... Read More
You may remember a few weeks ago, BUST mentioned an awesome new web series: Kelly & Lindsey Do New York. Quick reminder: Former BUST intern Lindsey Gentile has teamed up with her best friend Kelly Wallace-Barnhill to produce a five part series about surviving in the Big Apple without having to try.

While it already boasts writing from one of the best comedians of the moment*, its cast will include such ... Read More
