Follow Friday: @KarenKilgariff
Everybody is a yukster on Twitter, but only a select few are truly worthy enough to have all of their witticisms transmitted to you, the ever busy comedy fan trying to navigate through an increasingly congested internet. Every Friday we’ll make your life a little bit easier by introducing you to an individual who consistently makes us laugh and momentarily forget that other days of the week exist.
(If you’re reading this from an RSS feed, jump on over to the website where you can actually view the tweets for an optimal level of enjoyment.)
You know comedian, actress, musician and writer Karen Kilgariff (@KarenKilgariff) from Mr. Show, but she doesn’t flaunt that fact on Twitter. Even though appearing on one of the most critically acclaimed sketch shows of all time would automatically give you comedic street cred for one hundred years, Kilgariff uses a picture of Match Game panelist Brett Somers as her avatar with a bio that simply says “TV/VCR Repair” to go along with her funny words. The former head writer of Ellen Degeneres’s daytime talk show might get back in the television game really soon.
Karen understands how layered certain Disney Channel shows can be.
Even though she’s probably not caught up on Dog With A Blog.
And doesn’t watch Breaking Bad live.
Kilgariff knows how every commercial goes.
Karen wasn’t enthralled with the Olympics.
Because they didn’t use her idea.
But she hasn’t lost any sleep over it.
She dreams big.
Kilgariff has a great idea for a podcast.
And for a music festival.
And for how to not make Hangover 3 predictable.
She has other movies that those writers could work on instead.
Karen misses the good old days.
When guys heard her talk shit about them.
And when her evil pet was still alive.
Kilgariff might gain a few pounds in the next week.
But knows how to lose them.
Don’t be offended if she hates your birthday; it’s not her fault.
Or if it might take some time before you can visit her upstairs.
Roger Cormier is looking further into a glass bread diet.
