  1. Joe Leydon says:

    Pretty damn funny, I must admit.

  2. Geoff says:

    Funnier than Djesus Uncrossed? Even though I’ll admit that one could have been more clever….

  3. Matthew says:

    Hah, she has a funny voice and apparently foreign people are backwards! This is comedy that is both innovative and unique.

  4. christian says:

    Djesus Uncrossed= Bill Hicks rip=off

  5. David Poland says:

    That was such a “Richard Pryor curses to much” response, Matthew.

  6. Matthew says:

    Well, arguing about humor is always a lose/lose situation; I would venture that it’s one of the most personal tastes when it comes to entertainment.

    I will say that whoever this actress is has a career ahead of her in voice acting should she want one – those trills aren’t easy to pull off so rapidly.

  7. Krillian says:

    I liked that one. Djesus Uncrossed and What Have You Become? were pretty good too.

  8. Water bucket says:

    This was my favorite sketch too! I think it was her energy that really made the whole thing funny. Like Will Ferrell used to elevate bad materials by just being so darn committed to the sketches.

  9. Lex says:

    women r not funny ever

    no straight man likes funny women.

  10. Joe Leydon says:

    Lex: Well, in the immortal words of Cary Grant in Bringing Up Baby, I guess I just went gay all of a sudden.

  11. cadavra says:

    C’mon, Joe. Lex has no idea who Cary Grant was or what BRINGING UP BABY is.

“There are critics who see their job as to be on the side of the artist, or in a state of imaginative sympathy or alliance with the artist. I think it’s important for a critic to be populist in the sense that we’re on the side of the public. I think one of the reasons is, frankly, capitalism. Whether you’re talking about restaurants or you’re talking about movies, you’re talking about large-scale commercial enterprises that are trying to sell themselves and market themselves and publicize themselves. A critic is, in a way, offering consumer advice. I think it’s very, very important in a time where everything is commercialized, commodified, and branded, where advertising is constantly bleeding into other forms of discourse, for there to be an independent voice kind of speaking to—and to some extent on behalf of—the public.”
~ A. O. Scott On One Role Of The Critic

“Every night, we’d sit and talk for a long, long time and talk about the process and I knew he was very, very intrigued about what could be happening. Then of course, one of the fascinating things he told me about was how he had readers who were reading for him that never knew it was Stanley Kubrick. So if he heard of a novel, he would send it out to people. I think he did it through newspaper ads at the time. And he would send it out to people and ask for a kind of synopsis or a critique of the novel. And he would read those. And it was done anonymously. But he said there were housewives and there were barristers and all sorts of people doing that. And I thought, yeah, that’s a really good way to open up the possibilities. Because otherwise, you’re randomly looking, walking through a bookstore or an airport. I said, “How many people are doing this?” It was about 30 people.”
~ George Miller’s Conversations With Kubrick
