OBVIOUS CHILD: Jenny Slate, and a Hilarious Abortion Comedy – That Thing You Like #113


OBVIOUS CHILD is a 2014 GEM of a comedy, starring Jenny Slate (Kroll Show! Parks and Recreation! Marcel the Seashell with Shoes On!), and written/directed by Gillian Robespierre. And it’s hilarious! It’s also about abortion. But in a really progressive way! It actually makes a point to normalize the procedure, keep the focus on Jenny Slate’s choice, and break down social stigmas. But again, in a funny way.

We spend 40 minutes celebrating the great script and great performances, plus talk about how this gets at the nature of being a stand-up comedian much more than Judd Apatow’s Funny People ever did. Enjoy!

(And stick around for a bonus chat about the Entourage movie existing vs. Avengers: Age of Ultron? It’ll make sense.)
