5 Things | May 14th 2021

The best thing to happen to comedy since standing up

Heads up: The CDC is still recommending wearing a mask when opening newsletters from Grapefruit Bubbly. Here are our favorite 5 Things comedy this week.


  1. The Bachelorette Telework—In the latest We Can’t Make This Video podcast, a contestant on The Bachelorette didn’t get the memo that he was supposed to quit his day job before coming on the show. Available Free on Spotify, Google Play, and Anchor.


  2. Actor Brian Jordan Alvarez has been giving solid exercise tips from a purported “Australian bodybuilder” on Twitter.


  3. Legendary “Simpsons” scribe John Swartzwelder gave a rare interview with The New Yorker this month, in which he imparted some sage comedy writing advice. We think you should check it out!


  4. Grapefruit Bubbly’s entire Austin Sketch Fest performance can be streamed now on Twitch.


  5. Jon Dore was confirmed as a headliner for Madison Comedy Week (Aug. 1-8). Revisit one of his classic Conan sets (also featuring stand-up Rory Scovel).


    Every Wednesday we release either a podcast or a video. We publish this newsletter every Friday. If you liked it, share with your friends!
