If you follow my instagram (@CarolineEAnd guyz, it’s great) you know that I’ve been taking pictures of the ladies on our crew with the hashtag #PowerfulLadiesofCBB . I know it’s silly, but the doodz on the crew HAVE been giving me shit about “What about the men on the crew?”
During the final week of shooting Season 1 of Comedy Bang Bang I cried every day. Because we shot a sketch that I was in with a bunch of comedians who I adore. Because I was worried I’d lost Scott’s iPhone charger and he’d never forgive me (and god bless Griffin Pocock and Janel Kranking who did everything to help me figure out how to get a new one, even though Kulap was just borrowing it). Because Kerri Kinney-Silver was shooting and all I could think about was how The State was the reason I quit college and moved to LA (specifically because “If THEY can make comedy in their early twenties, why can’t I?”). And because this amazing experience was coming to a close and I didn’t know how to process it.
I have two-ish weeks left at Season 2 and I can already feel Mr. and Mrs. Tear Ducts preparing for a big harvest. And I should know how to process these sad, nostalgic, grateful, exhausted feelings. But this season has felt like a newer, bolder experience in a lot of ways I can’t even begin to describe.
I hope I never, ever, EVER take for granted what an amazing opportunity I had (still have) making this show.
Most people don’t get to spend their days doing something that they love doing, benefiting a project they care deeply about, surrounded by people they respect and adore, for an audience of smart, funny people. And by “most people” I mean myself for the next 25-30 years probably. But for now, I get to party for a living.
tearingdownthatfence asked: Hi Gail, re: that ask you recently answered about a character being gay "or at least bi" - wording like that makes it sound like bisexuals are some kind of watered down gays or only half queer. I know it's important to you not to alienate any kind of minorities so if you get asks with that kind of phrasing in the future, could you maybe add a note that there's nothing "at least" about being bi? As a bisexual person, that kind of thing really feels like a slap in the face.
You’re right, I never even thought about it like that.
