I love Moon’s TWITTER. It gets the whole big wonderful ball of her. She’s a rebel yogi, an author, actress, artist, Mom, daughter, yes also the proto valley girl – and all of it oh so sweet and sour funny. She recently made a much talked about appearance on MARC MARON’S WTF PODCAST. I love her rants and stories at UnCab. Plus she is always so Boho Chic.
I sat with DREW DROEGE at Alec Mapa’s Baby Daddy, where I learned the he “doesn’t much care for popcorn.” Shocking! Less shocking…The fact that Drew was recently a cover boy on Frontiers Magazine, is currently starring in NOT LOOKING, and has a NY Magazine Aprroval Matrixed PODCAST, GLITTER IN THE GARBAGE. If you know him best as Chloe Sevigny, do yourself a favor and see Drew as Drew. You’ll pop your corn!
MISSI PYLE puts the on in blonde! You’ve seen HER in a gazillion great things including THE ARTIST, CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY, INSIDE AMY SCHUMER, THE SARAH SILVERMAN PROGRAM and FRIENDS. She sings, she shines, she stories and she just Pyles the joy quite high. Missi was nominated for an MTV Award for Best Fight for her knock-down drag-out with QUEEN LATIFAH. Missi started her career out SINGING and she will be HAPPILY DOING JUST THAT, and generally being on on Sunday!
TIM BAGLEY has been telling on himself at UnCab since our days at Luna Park. He came to us with an insanely talented pack of Groundlings including Judy Toll, Julia Sweeney, Kathy Griffin and Mike McDonald. You’ve seen him act his pants off, sometimes literally, on everything from MONK to CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM to WILL & GRACE. He recently got into it with us on our podcast UNCABARET UNSTAGED on which he talked about, among other things, his show “Clean Boy, Dirty Stories” about his time as a butler at the Playboy Mansion. Oh Tim!
His new Comedy Central Special is called MATT BRAUNGER:SHOVEL FIGHTER but he is not a shovel fighter! He is a shovel lover! His Nerdist podcast is called DING DONGER. And I’m guessing that is pretty accurate. You may recognize him from his funny boy appearances on CHELSEA LATELY, LETTERMAN and CONAN.
MAK GRGIC is a young virtuoso guitar player. Straight out of USC his debut album CINEMA VERISIMO is filled with the magical music of post-WW2 Hollywood. THE WASHINGTON POST calls him a “LYRICAL, INSIGHTFUL PLAYER.”
