Layers: NATASHA VAYNBLAT – A ‘Breakout Artist’ Making It Look Easy

“It’s going to be a long night,” the coat check clerk tells me, motioning to the crowd. Having recently transitioned to third shift work, I can relate. The night has only just begun, and I still have to go to work. I’ve just barely managed to sneak in enough time before my shift to visit […]

Layers: WET TUX – A Red Carpet Late Night Affair

It’s a simple conceit: In the aftermath of the apocalypse, those who are useful – scientists, doctors, engineers – set out to build a better world. Those with no skills, the dregs, the bottom of the barrel, become society’s entertainers. They’ve decided to put on a late night talk show. If you’re not laughing yet, […]

Layers: You Can’t Have A MEDIAWITCH FUN FEST without Some Comedy Spells

I’ve been saying this for a while, but I really want everyone in the Marvel universe to get into paganism. Why? Well for one, witches love reading, and I don’t know how many (if any) Marvel characters are literate. Like Iron Man. I know he’s rich. I’ve seen his house. Yet, I’ve never seen him […]

Layers: Navigating The Comedy Depths of TRUTH SERUM at Q.E.D.

Everything in this article that I am about to discuss is the complete truth. No, of course I’ve never lied in other articles! Save embellishment for the law; I’m only interested in the truth. There are many types of truths: water truths, circumcised truths, and my personal favorite: comedic truths. The truth hurts yes, but […]

Layers: Let’s Talk About GIANMARCO SORESI’s “One Sided Conversation”

Therapy can be very therapeutic. That’s what my therapist told me. Also, my therapist never refers to me as a patient or client and only refers to me as her therapute. I don’t know why. But, I do know that no session that I’ve had with my therapist has been quite as therapeutic as Gianmarco […]

Layers: A Carefully Crafted Plot Summary and Analysis of QUICKIE FEST V

I spent hours excavating the internet for some sort of recap on Quickie Fest V. I checked everywhere: SparkNotes, Cliff Bar Notes, and coolmathgames.com but found nothing. I was shocked, especially since I swore I saw a representative from coolmathgames there. Therefore, I took it upon myself to write my own Plot Summary and Analysis […]

Layers: Everyone and Anyone Should Pick Up ROBERT DEAN’s “(It’s Not Easy) Being Dean” Out TODAY on Sure Thing Records

When I first saw the title of ROBERT DEAN’s new comedy album (It’s Not Easy) Being Dean, I instantly recalled childhood memories of listening to that beloved Muppet, Kermit the Frog, singing his identifyingly poignant tune. Then I remembered one of the lines of It’s Not Easy Beong Green, “and people tend to pass you […]

LAYERS: Drive into The New Workplace Series PARKED Now Streaming on Amazon

So I started watching this series and soon realized, hey, I’ve been in that parking lot! Getting to the credits of the six-part workplace digital comedy, PARKED, my suspicion was confirmed. It was filmed at no other than a popular Burbank landmark which will remain nameless for the rest of this review (until, of course, […]
