If you're new to these emails, welcome! Every Saturday, I send out a short email with three great things. I've also got some of my upcoming shows featured below. If you know anyone who you think would enjoy this, feel free to spread the word! They can sign up here or to see the archive of past emails, click here.
I'm in Cambridge, MA today hosting You're the Expert. We've got John Hodgman, Wyatt Cenac, and Maeve Higgins on the panel and our expert is Dr. Julie Shah, an MIT prof who studies robot-human teamwork. I think there are still a couple tickets left. You can check byclicking here.
Tomorrow (Sunday), I'm hosting another YTE taping, this time with Eugene Mirman, Elna Baker, and 30 Rock's Scott Adsit. Our expert for that show is Dr. Krista Ingram, who studies biological clocks in humans, fire ants, and bumble bees. Tickets for that here. I'll also be doing a short (but free) standup set later Sunday night at ImprovBoston, if that's more your speed.
Ok, on to this week's list!
1 Thing I Think Is Great:
My complete and utter inability to communicate with a barber is a real failure of my years studying English in college. I always end up asking for a haircut that's "a little shorter, and a little easier to manage." (Coincidentally, also what I'd like from most literature.) But this week I came across a spectacular e-book, Men's Hairstyles, and now I can just point to what I want. My next haircut might be the Brand New Dad or the Online Banking. I can't decide. Check out all the hairstyles, complete with recommended pairings and origin stories. Men's Hairstyles: Inspired Looks for the Up-To-Date Male
1 Thing That Made Me Laugh:
Amy Schumer is a genius. Her show on Comedy Central is smart and daring and very, very funny. The new season starts this week. In the meantime, Amy visited Ellen DeGeneres to promote the show and this video is one of the most hilarious talk show appearances ever. I will never be able to eat popcorn again without thinking of her. The Unbelievably Hilarious Amy Schumer
1 Interesting Thing:
Hillary Clinton's big announcement has had all my politically minded friends abuzz. One of the most interesting pieces I read about Hillary was actually about Victoria Woodhull, the very first woman to run for president. On Election Day, Woodhull couldn't even vote for herself, because she ran in 1872, nearly 50 years before women's suffrage. She also happened to be in prison for running "an obscene newspaper," which is part of what makes her story so fascinating. The Strange Tale of the First Woman to Run for President
