Upcoming Book “Notes from the Bathroom Line” Has One of Hell of a Line-up of Contributors
If you’re looking for something way in the future to look forward as a way to potentially have something to get you through the end of the year all the way into 2021 when maybe, possibly, hopefully there will be a vaccine that we all can get for COVID-19, there will be a magnificent collection of essays, poetry, toons, short stories, art, and so much more for well over 100 of the best women in comedy (from all corners including stand-up, writing, sketch, acting, podcasting, musical comedy, and more) in Notes from the Bathroom Line: Humor, Art, and Low-grade Panic from 150 of the Funniest Women in Comedy.
Amy Solomon (producer on Silicon Valley, Barry) curated the incredibly impressive literary gathering for this book and we really can’t wait for Mar. 16th, 2021 when Notes from the Bathroom Line is set for release.
Thus far, slated to contribute are:
Lolly Adefope, Maria Bamford, Aisling Bea, Lake Bell, Rachel Bloom, Rhea Butcher, Nicole Byer, D’Arcy Carden, Aya Cash, Karen Chee, Margaret Cho, Mary H.K. Choi, Amanda Crew, Rachel Dratch, Beanie Feldstein, Jo Firestone, Briga Heelan, Samantha Irby, Emily V. Gordon, Patti Harrison, Mary Holland, Jen Kirkman, Lauren Lapkus, Riki Lindhome, Kate Micucci, Natalie Morales, Aparna Nancherla, Yvonne Orji, Lennon Parham, Chelsea Peretti, Alexandra Petri, Natasha Rothwell, Amber Ruffin, Andrea Savage, Kristen Schaal, Megan Stalter, Beth Stelling, Cecily Strong, Sunita Mani, Geraldine Viswanathan, Michaela Watkins, Mo Welch, and Sasheer Zamata.
More contributors will be added down the line for a book that’s so much more promising than a lot of what 2020 has given us.

Season 2 of Nat Geo’s “Years of Living Dangerously” To Feature David Letterman, Cecily Strong, Jack Black, and More

Leave it to a show on a niche cable network having celebrities, many who are comedians, to fight for climate change awareness.
Years of Living Dangerously, a show covering the reality of climate change, on the National Geographic Channel just got picked up for a second season and is really going for it in terms of their guests this time around.
So far, they’ve got David Letterman, Ty Burrell, Jack Black, Cecily Strong, Don Cheadle, Olivia Munn, Ian Somerhalder, James Cameron, and Arnold Schwarzenegger on board for the show in some aspect or another.
Letterman will specifically be interviewing the Prime Minister of India.
Hopefully, this show will present climate change in an entertaining way that isn’t just laughing at certain presidential candidates that seem like they’re spouting off nonsense.
Barack Obama Cemented His Legacy as Our Funniest President Ever with His Anger Translator Luther and Cecily Strong Spared No One at Last Night’s White House Correspondents Dinner
What was being called “Nerd Prom” turned out to be a pretty great roast.
Last night’s Annual White House Correspondents Dinner will be a night to remember whether you were in attendance, watching it on YouTube, or actually tuning into C-SPAN.
President Obama delivered another great performance and even brought along Keegan Michael-Key as his “Anger Translator” Luther. It’s pretty undeniable that he’s the funniest president in American history.
Host Cecily Strong really cut deep with a lot of her jokes when she took the stage and dished it out throughout the whole room including President Obama himself and even Hillary Clinton who she favors. In fact, some jokes probably hit too close to home for some in the room and play way better to those watching it on screen.
Even though HBO has picked a showrunner to fill in after Armando Iannucci leaves Veep, it wouldn’t be entirely surprising to see Barack involved in the show after his leaves the White House.
SNL Makes Trailer for Gritty “Bambi” Reboot with Dwayne Johnson as Bambi
If they can make a gritty Snow White remake, why not a gritty update for Bambi?
That’s what SNL was thinking lat night when they made a trailer for something that’s a Fast and Furious 7 meets a live action Bambi with The Rock wearing deer ears and a fur vest and Taran Killam in a muscle suit and bunny ears.
Yes, they have plenty of pun “kill lines” too.
Michael Che to Co-Anchor SNL’s Weekend Update in Place of Cecily Strong; Will Leave The Daily Show
(via The Hollywood Reporter)
There’s been a lot of movement as of late ahead of the 40th season of Saturday Night Live. The latest change is Michael Che will return to SNL to co-anchor Weekend Update with Colin Jost. Che was a correspondent on The Daily Show, but with taking on this gig, will leave The Daily Show after his short tenure there.
Cecily Strong, who co-anchored Weekend Update last season, is moving back to being in more sketches.
After seeing Che on The Daily Show, we think he will do quite well at The Weekend Update desk.
