I had the opportunity to interview the iconic Joan Rivers on stage at Internet Week NY. Our 1-hour conversation covered some pretty interesting topics you don’t see her talking about often- social media and the impact on comedy, her own web series “In Bed With Joan”, and how at practically 80-years old she stays inspired and keeps hustling. She might get slammed a lot by the media and critics for being the brash personality that she is, but I must say, she is one of the most impressive women I’ve met. She’s been through so many ups and downs, yet continues pushing through and doing what she loves and was born to do. This interview definitely goes on my list as one my favorites and most memorable.
Got to do some fun interviews on the red carpet for the premiere of The Hangover Part III with Zach Galifianakis, Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Ken Jeong and Justin Bartha. Enjoy!
Was excited to participate in YouTube’s themed #ComedyWeek produced by JASH (EP’s of Jimmy Kimmel Live and in partnership with Michael Cera, Sarah SIlverman, Tim and Eric and Reggie Watts). Along with What’s Trending I collaborated with Rhett and Link for the YouTube #ChallengeChallenge with a group of awesome Youtubers- We performed 11 challenges in 4 minutes. Some were gag worthy- enjoy!
What’s Trending also teamed up with #ComedyWeek to bring you the Top Talk Show Moments with commentary from the likes of Grace Helbig, Kassem G, Shay Carl, Sourcefed, Husky Starcraft and more:
As an independent startup, this is a huge feat and we couldn’t have done this without the support of the web and tech community, as well as our dedicated team.
I grew up obsessed with talk shows and news magazines but over the years became deeply impassioned, inspired and empowered by the possibilities of the web. What’s Trending is a manifestation of that, and it’s just the beginning. We’re looking forward to embracing the disruption, pushing the boundaries and of course bringing all of you along the journey with us.
It’s been fun these days making cameos as myself on What’s Trending in scripted projects. I like to describe it as a meta experience! ha!
Look out for me interviewing Rashida Jones’ character in the upcoming Celeste and Jesse Forever.
I also recently had the opportunity to join the cast of Leap Year for their Season 2 premiere episode. Enjoy!
Freddie is one of my favorite YouTubers- him and his partner in crime Brandon Laatsch are the action filmmakers of this generation. Their incredible special effects and quality productions have allowed them to build a huge community on YouTube especially among the gamers.
VGHS (Video Game High School) is their action/comedy series they’re currently releasing, which they raised over 270,000 dollars of the budget for on Kickstarter!! They also shot one of the scenes at the What’s Trending studios. I joined the fabulous iJustine as the host of the talk show within the show (yes, very meta!).
