Tiny Nuts is a webseries created by and starring Taylor Barrett and Caroline Goldfarb. The two are trying to get life going post college. There’s good hair and a cute dog. Recently Taylor posted this tweet so I’m hoping her mom will come out with a webseries, too.

The webseries, Starting From Now finds Steph arriving in Sydney after landing what she hopes will be the perfect job. Because life is life, she falls for Darcy, her friend’s girlfriend and life gets… complicated.

Tig Notaro was back on Conan and she killed it again. Her five minute set covers fire trucks, small boobs and freaking your friends out with one simple text. It’s golden.

There’s apparently a new drug on the market that makes you more appealing to men. I have it on good authority that NOPE Cat makes a cameo in this ad.

HBO has been doing this thing where they put the first episode(s) of new shows or season premieres on YouTube in their entirety. They recently did this with the pilot of Silicon Valley. I rather enjoyed it so I’m putting it here.

This is Brittani’s Video Party, where I bring some of the “best” videos from all over my internet together so we can clap, cry or deconstruct. Have you ever gotten to a video and it already has 33 million views and you wonder where the heck have you been? Well I’m here to help you so that you see it when it only has 32 million views. Aim low, world. Aim low.

Brittani Nichols is a Los Angeles based comedy person. When she's not tweeting about white people or watching television, she's probably eating pizza. Actually, she's probably doing all three of those things concurrently and when she's not doing THAT, she's sleeping. Brittani also went to Yale and feels weird about mentioning it but wants you to know.

Brittani has written 328 articles for us.


  1. Tig Notaro is a divine goddess. Also I have always been extremely jealous of her sweater swag.

  2. Oh God, Tig Notaro. I should not have tried to drink coffee and listen to her set. Now I have to wash these pants. And treat these burns all over my legs.

  3. TIG!!
    God she’s so great. Have y’all seen her in the feministastic movie In A World, just being the best gaymo ever?? Too good.

  4. Thanks for introducing me to Tig Notaro, Brittani. I caught more of her stuff and would love it if she ever toured to Australia or New Zealand.
