If you’re feeling the post holiday blues, or just a general what-the-heck-is-even-happening-to-this-world-right-now blues, may I recommend seeking out some funny people. When you find a standup comic that can pull you out of a funk, they’ve got a gift. And while we’re on the subject, isn’t it true that laughter and date night are always one of the best combinations?
If you can’t get out to a comedy club, or you need some ideas, here are a few standup comedians and comediennes you might enjoy.
Other favorites to check out if you’re on a roll include: Hasan Minhaj (he has a special on Netflix called Homecoming King that is excellent), Hari Kondabolu, and Jim Gaffigan (also has several specials on Netflix).
Hot Drinks for a Cold Night
Before you press play, don’t forget the delicious drinks. This week on the menu is a classic that’s perfect for cold nights in.
Honey Bourbon Hot Toddy – featuring honey, bourbon and cinnamon!
Hot Not Toddy – the nonalcoholic cousin of the hot toddy and contender for most solid mocktail drink name out there.
Cheers to you and yours.
