Jerry Seinfeld went on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last night to perform a stand-up set, and it just felt weird to me. I think it was because there was no puffy shirt. And by “puffy shirt,” I don’t literally mean it was weird because I can only enjoy his stand-up when he’s wearing a puffy pirate shirt.

I’ve never seen Meredith from The Office look so positively cheerful. In this promo for Kate Flannery‘s new show, Stand Up In Stilettos, the comedian gushes about her new show featuring female stand up comics, three per half-hour episode.

Margaret Cho Demands More Support For Women In Comedy- “The straight male comics that I know will always watch each other and give each other pointers and will always support each other.
