Have you seen the new show Hacks? Legendary comedian Deborah Vance sells stand-up shows in Las Vegas, but in order to maintain the dates, she has to attract a younger audience. Well! The 25-year-old comedy writer who helps her has written jokes. The chemistry between the actors is perfect, and the script is fast and funny.

The boys usually have cereal in the morning, but the other day we picked up crispy bread and made toasts in the morning, just piling up leftover leftovers or whatever we could find in the closets. It’s a delicious way to start the day and clean the fridge.
I couldn’t love it Katie Sturino more, and her new book Body Talk – a guide to hug your body – should be a must-read for men, women and children. Inspirational paragraph: “I’m fat. It’s okay.

Nothing more, no less. It’s simple. “
