Yeah, bitches, it's my 48th birthday. Yup, 48.... Which is the new, um, 48. I'm owning it.

Some of you think that makes me old -- see, for instance, the very first YouTube comment on my new song:

The Easter Bunny Song

Well, clearly the Jews are out, guilt-free. Phew. So that leaves 6. But if we go to more than one set of divorced and remarried grandparents' homes, does the Easter Bunny come to both? #FirstWorldProblemsInTheHouse.

This is a song about my son who has 8...

We're in a mellow mood this week.

After causing a national fuss with "Sorry, Babe, You're a Feminist" and causing a scene with "Boobs" ...we're ready to chill. Need a little break too? Here are two sweet little things we'd love to share with you:

Boobs Look Funny When You're Having Sex

Intellectually it's all down hill from here after "Sorry Babe You're A Feminist" went viral with half a million views over several platforms and 19,000 likes alone here on HuffPost. Seriously people, I mean, how long can Broad Comedy and I keep THAT high-brow crap up? So here,...

Sorry Babe, You're a Feminist

(266) Comments | Posted March 24, 2015 | 11:30 AM

I literally shrieked "GAH!!!" out loud in a Brooklyn coffee shop.

I was reading the most recent interview with the actress du jour quoted saying, No, she wasn't a feminist. She was sitting there being interviewed, with no ironic intent whatsoever, wanting her voice to be heard and...

Sir Patrick Stewart said he doesn't fit in in his neighborhood of Park Slope, Brooklyn, because he's the only one without a stroller. We knew what we had to do.

Fluid: Taking Off Your Pants and Quantifying the Science of Bisexuality

(6) Comments | Posted March 21, 2014 | 12:04 PM

Perhaps it's a sliding scale. Or "fluid" as playwright Paula Vogel and researcher Lisa Diamond call it. Sexuality. If nothing else, we can agree it's damn complicated.

In today's New York Times, a terrific profile by Benoit Denizet-Lewis on the American Institute of Bisexuality (A.I.B.) shows a smart and well-meaning...

We are very angry at Lego, in my household. Very.

This is a big spoiler alert, so, just, like, if you give two shits about the new Lego movie, skip this blog entirely. Cuz we're going to ruin it for you:

This was the opening line of a cabaret I just saw at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival where I'm performing my solo musical satire show all month in Scotland. Interestingly, it was asked not by a man as might have been...
