Put aside work, school, and the pursuit of goals for a moment. You can always do that stuff later. Relax. Hide under the desk for some well-deserved you time with today’s playlist.
Above Average offers up some unexpected speed dating with the Pursuit of Sexiness. We learn what true rage can produce with the right motivation at IFC’s Comedy Crib. We also find out what lengths The Last Man On Earth star, Kristen Schaal, will go to for her art.
We all have that one friend who sometimes leads us astray. In the season two premiere of the Pursuit of Happiness, Nicole Byer plays that very friend. Not only does she leave her pal (played by SNL’s Sasheer Zamata) in a situation she was totally unprepared for, but she profits from the experience in the “tastiest” of ways. We look forward to five more self-absorbed episodes with these two gal pals in search of quick cash, a proper meal, and perhaps a decent guy. Thanks to Above Average for picking up the series after it debuted on UCB Comedy.
Dawn would also like some joy in her life, but she keeps finding herself in situations that drive her completely bonkers. After discovering she is the only person in her friend group not invited to her pal’s Oscar party, she sets off pursue the ultimate revenge. Enjoy Dawn Luebbe in Not Invited care of IFC’s Comedy Crib. The Rage series is simply a hoot.
We’re really working the girl power today. Our final video highlights the talents of one of the great comedy actresses of this generation. Yes, Kristen Schaal spent some time on the couch with Seth Meyers to talk about an incident that occurred filming the hit show Last Man on Earth. Let’s just say there was some tootin’ involved and it was one of the few times Will Forte broke character. Awesome.
