Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark of “My Favorite Murder” launch Exactly Right podcast network

In two-and-a-half years, My Favorite Murder has grown from oddity of the Feral Audio podcast network, to headlining touring theater act, to millions of monthly downloads. Now the comedians who started My Favorite Murder are starting their own podcast network: Exactly Right. When Feral Audio bit the dust at the end of 2017, in part due to allegations of abuse lodged against that network’s founder, several podcasts split and joined Starburns Audio. But there remained a distinct lack of podcast networks fronted by and geared toward supporting women. Into which void Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark have now filled...

Evan Kaufman explains his oops moment on $100,000 Pyramid

Evan Kaufman can be seen plenty of times at The People’s Improv Theatre and other venues around New York City, either performing Your Love, Our Musical, or with his house improv group, Gypsy Danger. He’s also directed some national TV commercial campaigns you might have seen. But you likely definitely remember seeing him this week on ABC’s $100,000 Pyramid. Even if you didn’t tune in to watch it on TV. That’s because he made a big ol’ blunder for all to see, and turn into viral memes. I’ll let Kaufman explain himself, in his own words. “So. This is...
