I have not been able to stop laughing tonight. I was on Netflix and ended up streaming "Whitney Cummings: Money Shot." It was hilarious. Can't watch it with your kids probably.
I wouldn't watch it with my oldest son because I know he'd be embarrassed to laugh and my other kids are too young for it.
But your teenager will probably love it. Just let them watch it by themselves.
Whitney was so funny. I especially loved the part about bras and the underwire bra and how a man had to invent that.
Whitney Cummings stars in NBC's "Whitney" which I love but I had never seen her doing stand up before. So the film was a real discovery.
I wish it were a comedy CD. I'd listen to it in the car when driving to and from work.
And did you ever notice how few women have comedy albums?
Ellen has one ("Taste This," I listen to it regularly all these years later). I have a best of Lily Tomlin on CD. (Her albums were made back during the days of vinyl and I have never, ever seen them on CD at any store I've been at. I even bought the best of on CD hoping it would make the store order some of her other albums.) Whoopi has her first Broadway show on CD. Gilda Radner's Broadway revue (very funny) is usually carried in a store with a large comedy CD collection. In fact, Gilda's often the only one.
You might find Nichols & May (Mike Nichols and Elaine May). But that's really it.
And it's not like women didn't have comedy albums.
But they keep the men in business and bury the women. I may write about that tomorrow.
