Comedy Gets Gut-Punched by Hannah Gadsby

by T. Mack

Hannah Gadsby, a well-known comedian from Tasmania, is quitting comedy. She has her reasons, and in her new Netflix comedy special, Nanette, she tells all about them. If a comedy special seems like a strange place to announce a retirement from comedy, you’re not wrong. Gadsby even admits as much. But the show is her platform and up until now, comedy has been the only voice she’s had to be heard. So Gadsby uses both the platform and her voice to give a few laughs, tell some stories, and educate viewers about some very serious matters.

10 Reasons to Love Brooklyn Nine-Nine

by Taylor

It’s been a rough few weeks for Brooklyn Nine-Nine. The network-that-shall-not-be-named tried to throw this precious gem of a show in the trash, but the wonderful angels at NBC have rescued B99 for another season and all is right with the world (well, not the world, but let’s not get started on that). After having my heart ripped out, stomped on, and taped back together by NBC, I decided that now is the perfect time to make a list celebrating all the reasons to love Brooklyn Nine-Nine*. There are about a million reasons to love this show, but I’ve narrowed it down to my personal top ten. If you haven’t watched Brooklyn Nine-Nine yet, go binge this show on Hulu right now and then come back and read this list. So sit down and get ready to shout, “Nine-Nine!”
