5 Things | May 28th 2021

The only comedy newsletter that can’t count to 6.

  1. Introducing the Miracle Burger: meatless, dairy-free, and yet legally prohibited from being called “vegan.” See why in the latest video from Grapefruit Bubbly.

  1. Grapefruit Bubbly’s own Olivia Witt will be performing in “High Concept” TONIGHT at 8 p.m. at Quality CBD on Williamson Street in Madison. “You were taught cannabis was harmful. Now you know better. Now you watch comics attempt to perform while hopelessly high. Then you get to ask them what the heck they were talking about. High Concept rides again.” Hosted by Mike Jonjak and also featuring KC Philips, Samara Suomi, Jake Snell and Chris Schmidt. Tickets are $15.

  1. Birdwatching is hard and comedian Joe Rumrill isn’t great at it. Watch him struggle in one of our favorite comedy videos this week, “Bad at Birdwatching.”

  1. Revisit Jacob Kaplan’s already-classic impression of a 14-year-old in a play acting out experiences he’s clearly never had.

  1. Online humor publication Slackjaw unveiled the winners of its annual humor writing challenge. Scroll through some of this year’s funniest entries here.

Grapefruit Bubbly releases either a new video or podcast every Wednesday, and we publish this newsletter every Friday.

Keep an eye out next week for the newest episode of WE CAN’T MAKE THIS VIDEO, a podcast where we read the scripts we’ve written that are impossible to film. (Catch up on past episodes here.)
