How 10 of the Best Stand-Up Comedians Handle Hecklers

If we learned anything about stand-up comedy last fall, it’s that when a Hannibal Buress video goes viral, you should probably watch it. This time, his YouTube hit isn’t going to end an icon’s career; it’s just an enormously entertaining three-minute destruction of a boorish heckler. Said hecklers have been the bane of many a comedian’s existence — drunken assholes, bachelorette party morons, and would-be comics have been mistaking stand-up for interactivity since the form began. So on this April Fools’ Day, we thought we’d take a look at how Buress and a few other comic greats handled these particular fools. … Read More

‘Broad City’ Costume Designer Staci Greenbaum on Season 2’s Best Outfits and Where to Buy Ilana’s Bras

‘Broad City’ Starts Season 2 With a Burst of Delightfully Familiar Flatulence

Broad City‘s second season begins by plunging viewers into the guts of its funhouse-mirrored New York City: the subway. As Ilana (Glazer) and Abbi (Jacobson) try to make their way toward the nearest door to their stop’s exit, each car reveals an exaggeratedly hellish version of an experience with which any New York commuter can empathize. The scene is also relevant to non-New Yorkers, as each car seems to introduce the themes of the upcoming season. Thankfully, they don’t diverge — at all — from those of the first. Said themes are: stuff that comes from butts, stuff that comes from whatever other places on the body might produce comedic “stuff,” stuff that comes from New York’s own grotesque body, and stuff that happens when your life doesn’t seem to have a schedule, when you give few enough shits to make a life out of simply doing random “stuff” with your BFF. … Read More
