If there is any more powerful tool for creating a cult of personality, it has to be Instagram! What better way to bring on heaps of unquestioning adulation and praise than photos of yourself in mind-altering brights and blinding graphic prints. You may be familiar with the commandingly funny Ig work of UCB Comedy’s NATASHA […]

Icing: We Talk to The Women Behind The Dramedy Web Series AFTER PLUTO

We are still knee-deep in the traditional pilot season, so of course, Comedy Cake receives a generous share of videos for review.

Icing: EMILY MAYA MILLS Talks ‘By A Thread’ And Going Full Kanye

Comedian Emily Maya Mills makes stand-up look effortless. Her style has a deceptive genial quality that bites when you least expect it. Like a blow dart filled with wily truth bombs and simmering self-deprecation, you’re laughing at her jokes before you even realized what’s happened.

Icing: Meet The REFORMED WHORES, Musical Comedy Ladies of Country

The REFORMED WHORES present bawdy, controversial material in the most warm, serene and inviting way imaginable. RW members Marie Cecile Anderson and Katy Frame are […]
