Hell-bent for laughter!

Boredwalk Hell-Bent Feminist She-Devil Shirt

Phew! Another week in the books. One week closer to our respective inevitable demises. Thank goodness, amirite you guys?

This week was pretty hectic around Boredwalk HQ thanks to some epic fails on the part of one of our main suppliers. Silver lining? We documented their ineptitude on Twitter.

That didn't stop us from delivering the goods, though! I still made time to crank out not just one, but TWO new designs: the refreshingly feminist counterbalance to Netflix's new Mötley Crüe biopic The Dirt you see above, and the delightfully glum paean to springtime blues below:

Boredwalk Welcome To The Misery Party Shirt

Meredith and I also squeezed in a fun interview with *EMMY NOMINATED* comedy writer Chase Mitchell! You may know his writing from any one of the following esteemed programs: MTV's Nikki & Sarah Live, NBC's Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, NBC's The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon, and Netflix's The Fix, among others. He's, uh, kind of a big deal...or at the very least big deal-adjacent.

We chat with Chase about how he got into comedy, first as a fan and then professionally, how comedy writing is a lot more like copy writing for marketing than comedy pros might care to admit, what exactly he did to get his Twitter account suspended for a day (hint: it involved the former Speaker for the U.S. House of Representatives, a necktie, and a humorous, not-at-all-literal suggestion of what the former Speaker should do with it), and how Disneyland broke him (in a good way), among many other topics! Listen below!  

And hey, if you've been enjoying the podcast — or even if you haven't! — please consider taking some time out of your busy lives and subscribing to it on iTunes, Stitcher, or Google Play, or leaving us a review. Tell us what you like or don't like. Try to be constructive; we're fragile artistic types that already drink too much (thanks, internet trolls.) 😒

We hope you've had a fantastic week, and if you haven't, that your weekend at least provides some respite from the storminess of the previous five days. If you can, try to take a few minutes for yourself — you could probably use it.

We'll be back next week with a new Boredwalk community spotlight, new designs, a new podcast episode, and more! Until then, stay safe, love — or at least tolerate — your fellow human (even if he/she/they are being an asshole and definitely don't deserve it), and as always...

Peace, love, and tacos,
