    Just saw one of her standups on Netflix and i have to admit that she is the most unfunny person i have ever seen. This women couldn't make me laugh if her life would depend on it.

    In my mind the douchbag comedian is that Ross guy that hosts the roasts, but he's too big for that description.
    Still seems like a douche.

    I like her interview with Trevor more than I like her interviews with Ellen.
    No shade to Ellen, but this interview just flows better.

    This womens comedy is honestly hilarious but this chick is crazy af, welcome to the comedy life where you can't be a scared little girl. Glad she grew up. She honestly thinks she gonna get raped or murdered wherever she goes. Neurotic much. And yes she does get a leg up nowadays for being a women and a minority but also that guy probably sucks at comedy so he's just making excuses as to why he's not more popular. Privileged minorities that the US tries to appease to when they never actually experienced oppression. Such ass
