Who's Your Favorite? Favorite 5 Female Comedians

Who's Your Favorite? Favorite 5 Female Comedians

Comedy is an art form and comedians are artists. Let's appreciate the art of these fine female comedians. They work hard on honing their craft. That's why it is important we recognize their contributions. Without further ado... here are my favorite 5 female comedians

5.
Tina Fey is my number 5. She would have ranked higher if she were more active. Where are you, Tina? Fans are waiting for another 30 Rock. Still, you can't take away from her genius. The former Saturday Night Live player holds all the cards. Have you seen her American Express commercials?

4.
My number 4 is Margaret Cho. It's a shame that she doesn't get enough recognition. Cho knows how to push your buttons. Her comedy has you on the edge of your seat. Over the years, Margaret Cho has undoubtedly perfected her craft. Have you seen her music videos? Check out this blog post.

3.
Whitney Cummings belongs at number 3. She is the best comedy writer on this list. If I were writing about comedy writers exclusively, she would be number 1. Did you know she is the key to the success of 2 Broke Girls? That show is a part of American culture. As you can see, Whitney Cummings directly impacts pop culture.

2.


At number 2 is Iliza Shlesinger. She is an underrated comedian. It's about time she got her own TV show. Hook her up, Comedy Central. The standup girl is one of the best standup comedians on this list. Iliza is a natural at making people laugh.

1.
Amy Schumer takes the number 1 spot because she is a workhorse. This list had to include her on top. She's always making movies and doing standup specials. I recently saw Snatched. I haven't seen Trainwreck, but I hear it's hilarious. 

Who's your favorite female comedian? Chime in your comments.

The Irony of Binge-Watching Orange Is the New Black Season 5

BY: GURU JAY

The Irony of Binge-Watching Orange Is the New Black Season 5


I hope you had an amazing 4th of July. I hope you saw fireworks, ate barbecue ribs, and didn't have to work. If you did have to work, I hope you received holiday pay.

I decided early 4th of July to binge-watch Orange Is the New Black (OITNB) season 5. Late at night I find myself binge-watching episodes of OITNB. I fall asleep until Netflix asks me if I want to continue watching. Who else does that?

Do you lose quality when you binge-watch? Or does the director intend on you binge-watching? That's why Netflix releases 13 episodes at once. Anyway, I'm impressed by season 5 so far.

Orange Is the New Black sucked me in and absorbed my attention like a sponge for three straight episodes. It felt like being in a night class that's scheduled for four hours. By the third hour, you need a break. And that's when I dozed off around 4:30 in the morning.

How ironic is it to watch, essentially women behind bars, on the 4th of July. You're watching people without freedom, on America's day of celebrating freedom. It's all too real. Then, I remember they're just actors. Piper Chapman's real name is Taylor Schilling. And Laura Prepon is that girl from That's 70 Show.

The first episode of season 5 rehashed the OITNB's characters lives before prison. If this is your first episode seeing ever, you won't be totally lost. I recommend binge-watching season 3. Then 1, 2, and 4. It's true what they say, the third time's the charm. Try it and let me know how it turned out for you.


As I was binge-watching the episodes, I thought about how a hacker threatened to release OITNB to the masses if Netflix didn't pay a ransom. Then I thought about how a similar situation happened to Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean. Finally, I came to the conclusion that it's ironic they're hacking intellectual property centered around state property and private property. Just when I began thinking it's a bad world, I remember it's funny too.

Why John Cena Should Star in More Movies

BY: GURU JAY

John Cena is arguably the biggest name in World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) right now. He picked up where the Rock left off and added a few ingredients. If you smelt what the Rock was cooking, then you know John Cena's secret recipe is classified.

He has built a durable brand which is evolving over time. Without question, the wrestler is an incredible actor. Cena plays a convincing part in the Marine movie. In fact, his portrayal convinced me to buy the DVD. I believe his movie career will take off exponentially this year because Hollywood is finally recognizing his star potential.

Have you seen Daddy's Home? I haven't seen it yet, but I look forward to watching it soon. That way when Daddy's Home 2 comes out, the first one will be fresh in my mind. John Cena has a major role in the movies.

His most recent movie is The Wall produced by Amazon Studios released in May. The film rises to the occasion and tells a vivid war story. Cena portrays a realistic staff sergeant.

The action star embraces discipline and embodies strength. Despite constant pressure, he maintains a consistent work ethic night after night. Moreover, his unbreakable mindset allows him to work out hard on a daily basis. We all know how difficult sticking to a rigid routine can be; and, John Cena sticks to his guns.

It helps that his wife Nikki Bella is also a professional wrestler. She helps him in his efforts to maintain focus and superstar status. What are the odds that both husband and wife do the same thing for a living?

John is just scratching the surface in showbiz. I expect to see him in more blockbusters. It's only a matter of time before producers realize they're getting a steal of a deal signing Cena to a contract.

Who's the Best Bella? Bella Thorne Vs. Bella Hadid

BY: GURU JAY



Back Story

Many Hollywood stars share the same name. And sharing is caring. You're reading this now because you care about celebrities to some degree.

Doesn't everybody have a favorite celebrity? What famous people would you like most to meet? Imagine meeting two celebrities at one time.

Meet Bella Thorne and Bella Hadid.

I've already asked who's the best Emma. Now the question is who's the best Bella. Who do you choose between Bella Thorne and Bella Hadid? Maybe, you want the best of both worlds. Well, this is your stop.

Bella Thorne has shown she's a highly qualified actress. Her filmography is growing by the minute as her IMDB profile updates everyday. The star of umpteen Disney movies has a bright future. What is more, Thorne is fresh. Just ask Rotten Tomatoes.

Currently, she's making headlines for apparently dating Kourtney Kardashian's ex boyfriend Scott Disick. Bella Thorne shouldn't have a problem in the dating department. Anyone she chooses is lucky to have her.

Moreover, Bella Hadid has proven she's one of America's top models. The supermodel is following the footsteps on the runway strutted by Tyra Banks. Bella Hadid aka Gigi Hadid's sister is shining in many ways inside Hollywood.

The star is demonstrating her natural worth in the entertainment industry. What more can she do to show she's second to none? The Weeknd music videos are only the tip of the iceberg. Hadid is just getting started. Give her 3 years and she'll surprise you. Vogue is attached to Bella like Velcro.

In comparison, Bella Hadid is the bigger name at this moment in time. However, pretty soon Bella Thorne's name will become bigger than Hadid because of Disney's history and track record. Like Britney Spears and Miley Cyrus, I see Bella Thorne going places. It's only a matter of time before I'm proven right.

A Conversation On the Greatness of Brie Larson

A Conversation On the Greatness of Brie Larson

It's been reported in Vanity Fair and via other sources that Brie Larson gets by with a little help from her friends Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Stone. Talk about star power! Lawrence and Stone are two of Hollywood's finest actresses. As you'll soon discover, Miss Larson keeps very good company.

Emma Stone won the Oscar for La La Land this year and Jennifer Lawrence received one for Silver Linings Playbook in 2012. Clearly, Brie Larson belongs in the best actress conversation as well. Brie earned an Academy Award for her performance in Room last year. Her bevy of talents should be showcased like Olivia Wilde's. Don't underestimate her capabilities.

Are you looking forward to seeing Brie enter the Marvel universe as Captain Marvel or what? Who would love watching Larson and Scarlett Johansson perform in scenes together? In a sense, Larson is the antithesis of Angelina Jolie. While Angelina portrays the bad girl image, Brie is a good girl. What is more, she embraces characters who are largely likable protagonists.

Everyone can agree that this celebrity is destined for greatness. You'll soon find her footprints cemented in stone on Hollywood Boulevard. Plus, you won't find a more polished gem in showbiz anywhere. Producers see Brie's smile and personality as entertainment assets. She looks like a younger Julia Roberts and acts like Sandra Bullock.

Many celebrities come across as disingenuous. However, Brie seems pleasant and humble. Did you know she was raised in Sacramento, California? She went to school for acting at the American Conservatory Theater.

I highly recommend watching Brie Larson movies including: The Gambler, Free Fire, and Kong: Skull Island. She plays Mark Wahlberg's love interest in the Gambler. Additionally, she is the leading actress of Free Fire and Kong: Skull Island. Also, I look forward to seeing the Glass Castle, Basmati Blues and Unicorn Store.

How Lorde Generates Traction

How Lorde Generates Traction



If you want something to do, why don't you listen to some music? Listening to music is more than just a hobby. Listening to music is a lifestyle. Can you imagine life without Vevo, Spotify, and Coachella?

Have you heard any good songs lately? I'll share what's new on my playlist with readers. Recently, I have discovered Lorde. I highly recommend listening to the singer. I plan on attending her concert in the future.

Her sound is similar to Lady Gaga's futuristic music. She sounds like a talking saxophone. There's something special in her voice that only a few singers possess. No one can deny her creative streak.

They say if you can make it here in New York, you can make it anywhere. 20 year-old Lorde demonstrated her big time abilities in the Big Apple as musical guest on Saturday Night Live last March. Her performance received an ample round of applause from a lively crowd. It wouldn't surprise me if Lorde is invited back to host as early as next year.

The Tennis Court songstress makes headlines like Serena Williams weekly. She may even surpass Serena's popularity one day soon. But right now the Wimbledon legend is on top.

Still, Lorde has the whole world ahead of her. Did you know the sexy songstress originates out of New Zealand? The hot Iggy Azalea originates out of Australia, which is not too distant from the Green Light singer's headquarters.


As a result of hard work and good looks, Lorde is a major trend in search results. In fact, she was the 5th most Googled celebrity a month ago. I believe she is in the process of building a global fan base right now. She generates a lot of traction in magazines, on blogs, and around town.

The Revelation of TV Action Star Jaimie Alexander

BY: GURU JAY

Photo By: Wikimedia Commons

Jaimie Alexander kicks ass and takes names on the Blindspot television series. Blindspot is a popular TV thriller airing on NBC Wednesdays. It is currently in the 2nd season.

Jaimie Alexander phenomenally plays Jane Doe on Blindspot. She doesn't miss a beat working with the FBI. Moreover, the show keeps you in ultimate suspense. Another angle pops up, just when you figure out a clue.

You see her tattoos help solve pertinent cases. They give the FBI a significant edge. I recommend watching Blindspot every week if you enjoy putting pieces together. You'll love unwrapping the mystery with likable characters.

Also, if you like Kerry Washington on Scandal, then you'll like Jaimie Alexander on Blindspot. Scandal gives you the TV Politics and Blindspot gives you the TV Action. I wonder when Washington's and Alexander's paths will cross. I know when they do meet, we're destined to see greatness.

In a sense, Blindspot is similar to Quantico. Jaimie Alexander is the centerpiece like Priyanka Chopra. In the latest episode, the DOJ investigates a supposed leak. They try to pin responsibility on Assistant Director Weller, but Jane Doe sticks up for her “man.” There's so much packed in one episode to make your head explode.

Blindspot deals with current issues in an explosive way. They get to the bottom of it without beating around the bush too much. The question is can you handle all the action smacking you in your face.

Jaimie Alexander reminds me of Krysten Ritter who plays Marvel's Jessica Jones (private investigator) on Netflix. She may be slim but she has super strength. In Jessica's case she has superpowers.


I look forward to seeing Jaimie pave the lane on Hollywood Boulevard. The 32 year-old actress deserves to be in more movies. She is destined to appear on the silver screen.

The Interesting Tale of Mandy Moore

BY: GURU JAY

The Interesting Tale of Mandy Moore


Once upon a time there were 3 princesses: Britney, Jessica, and Mandy. They were three of a kind so to say. At their peak potential, they rivaled one another.

Mandy Moore used to dominate MTV back when Carson Daly hosted Total Request Live (TRL). She could sing with the best of them including Britney Spears. She was more famous than Jessica Simpson at one point in time.

Then, something mysterious happened. She went away- not so much in the physical sense but in the supernatural sense. The pop princess was no longer famous in 2007. Yet, last year she comes out of nowhere like Supergirl all of a sudden.

I call this phenomenon the interesting tale of Mandy Moore. The multi-talented Mandy is a very intriguing specimen and fascinating story. She has her way- coming and going as she pleases. Few celebrities can enter and renter Tinseltown after spending time in Zombieland.

That's why everybody is interested in Mandy Moore's projects. This Is Us left fans literally dying for Moore. Moreover, the singer has proven she's a wonderful actress. Whatever you do, don't underestimate Mandy Moore's magnetism.

This pop princess knows how to entertain the masses. From the Princess Diaries to Tangled, she came a long way on her journey. Who wants to be her Prince Charming? At 32 years old, Mandy is still young and vibrant.

Future Hollywood stars should learn from this celebrity. If you want to succeed in the entertainment business, sometimes you need to take it slow. Far too many actors/singers rush their game and don't get to enjoy the fruits of their labors.

When you're famous, work-life balance may become nonexistent. So try to be like Mandy who is living like a fairy tale. There's a reason this princess is making headlines right now.
