What If Mansplainers Had A Late-Night Hotline To Whine To?
Following in the footsteps of Mad TV, Talkshow with Spike Feresten and The Wanda Sykes Show, Fox’s Party Over Here is the network’s latest attempt to take on Weekend behemoth Saturday Night Live. Though it’s created by The Lonely Island’s Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone, the new sketch series is fronted by three sharp comediennes, Jessica McKenna, Alison Rich and Nicole Byer. (You might have heard the latter two tearing it up on recent How Did This Get Made eps for The Covenant and Blood Sport respectively.)
All three of these funny ladies are front and center of this clip that imagines a late-night hotline for all the dudes who get off by condescending to women. Sports, men’s rights, #notallmen, and even the “Rey is a Mary Sue” argument get brought up, because of course they do.
Goddamn. Just imagine if you could charge douche-bros that talk down to you for the pleasure of wasting your time. That might actually even the scales for the gender pay gap…
Kristy Puchko isn’t an angry feminist as much as an exhausted one.
