Guess what: Our culture’s entire engagement tradition is a cynical advertising creation on the part of the DeBeers diamond cartel. Happy Valentine’s Day!
It was such a pleasure to be able to take one of my favorite standup bits and bring it to life this way. Thanks to Paul Briganti for directing, Kent Kincannon for editing, Jon Wolf and Michele Santoro for producing, and Sam Reich for believing in the concept. Hope you enjoy it / are infuriated by your captivity within a capitalist society hell-bent on perverting your sincerest gestures of affection into profit!
I could watch a million videos of Adam appearing out of nowhere to explain things to people.
I still want one.
When it comes to funny ladies, Nicole Byer (MTVâs Girl Code) and Sasheer Zamata (Saturday Night Live) take the cake.
We love these ladies :)
In honor of Galentine’s Day, I interviewed the phenomenally funny Nicole Byer about comedy and life with her BFF Sasheer Zamata for Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls! They are da best <3
