There’s a very powerful movement going on right now on the internet that, you know, women are kind of coalition building in a very cool way. I’m talking about #nomakeup. You can search it if you don’t believe me, but some brave women are mustering up all their courage, and they will post a photo onto the internet in which they are wearing no makeup whatsoever. I’m serious. But when they post the photos, they’ll always make a big announcement in the caption, they’ll be like “In the following photograph, I, Cassandra, am not wearing any makeup!” 

I feel like women are frequently seen as guests in the comedy world — you know, a kid sister of the “real comedians”. I like the idea of positioning myself as legendary rather than trying to fit in. Now do I see myself like that every day? No, but I think it’s a funny attitude and maybe on some weird, spiritual level, maybe it’s a good attitude.” - Chelsea Peretti
