Wednesday watch: Riot

Refinery 29 has created a female-driven YouTube channel called Riot that is worth your time. As creative director Julie Miller told Indiewire, “RIOT is an uprising. It’s a space for women to make comedy for everyone and not feel like they have to skew male.” It features series such as “Woke Bae” with Phoebe Robinson and “How to Weep in Public” with Jacqueline Novak. This video is from a series called “Womanhood,” featuring fantastic comedians Aparna Nancherla and Jo Firestone. Say goodbye to a few hours of your day.
