A Funny Thing: Caitlin Brodnick Loses Her Mind to Lose a Few Pounds

Caitlin Brodnick thought diets were fun. Really. But then she made herself a lab rat in the cult-like laboratory of the Great American Infomercial. Cast as a "Before" in a meal-plan experiment for television, what wouldn't she sacrifice for the horrible "After"?

Caitlin is a comedian and storyteller in New York and on the internet @caitybrodnick. See her host the story show Shut Up! at the PIT in New York.

Check Out Rob Huebel's New Adult Swim Infomercial 'Swords, Knives, Very Sharp Objects and Cutlery'

Here's Swords, Knives, Very Sharp Objects and Cutlery, a new Adult Swim special written by and starring Rob Huebel that aired this morning at 4 AM. Huebel plays Dragon Shumway, a Kill Bill-esque samurai character he originated on Adult Swim's NTSF:SD:SUV, now hosting his own QVC-style infomercial where he sells weapons. Oh, and his TV studio is under attack. It's the second faux-infomercial Adult Swim has aired in the wee hours of the morning this year, after Michael Ian Black's You're Whole earlier this month. Hopefully, Adult Swim continues to let funny people do weird stuff at unholy hours of the morning for a long time to come.
