The Nose Has The Hands Of A 70 Year Old

May 1, 2020

There are plenty of questions about what the future of live performance looks like right now, and, in certain ways, no form seems more displaced by social distancing and everything else than does standup comedy. As such, people are just going to have to try new things, right? New York club comedian Ted Alexandro's YouTube comedy special is one of the first such experiments.

And: Do you feel like you're running out of movies to watch? Have you crossed just about everything off of your must-see list? The Nose has compiled its own list of semi-obscure, semi-forgotten, semi-overlooked movies to help get you through this time. Nothing too artsy-fartsy, nothing too oddball. Just some titles you might've missed that are worth your time. (Here's the full list in handy Twitter-thread form. It runs fully 43 titles.)

Some other stuff that happened this week, give or take:

GUESTS:

  • Susan Bigelow - A librarian, a columnist for CT News Junkie, and a science fiction/fantasy novelist
  • Shawn Murray - A standup comedian and writer
