I live in New York. I am a comedian, writer and actor. I also am an entertainment writer for VH1.com
You may have seen my writing on many other reputable websites (McSweeney's, The Huffington Post, Hello Giggles, xojane.com, The Hairpin, Splitsider, The FW, etc.). I also write crazy blogs about Game of Thrones, Magneto and Jeff Goldblum.
In 30 years, some comedy legend (improv/stand up/writing/whatnot) is going to be asked in an interview how they first met some other comedy legend and the answer is going to be, “Huh…I don’t know…like he started following me on tumblr and he liked some of my posts about Phil Hartman and then I started following him one day and then I disagreed with a post he made about Girls and then we had a minor argument, but then we both liked a gif set from Parks and Recreation and so, when we finally ran into each other at some party in Brooklyn, we were like, ‘Yo. I know you.’ And it was awkward and then we did some dumb show together that fell apart and five years later Fuse gave us a small budget and we made a breakthrough alt comedy show that was cancelled after two seasons.”
We’ll never meet over fighting about demons again.
I wrote this about the super cool panel I got to go to while I was in LA last week.
"…she can play typical mothers and girlfriends…"
Oh, thank God. I was beginning to worry that men didn’t notice how much ladies consider playing “typical mothers and girlfriends" as a real stretch for us and a true test of our versatility.
Pedrad also has some fabulous impressions, endearing characters and can play against gender, age and race. She also possesses ridiculous on screen poise, great comic delivery and can dance the shit out of everyone else in the cast (except maybe Taran Killam). She also excels when given straight roles in scenes. I think that’s what you were getting at.
