Emily Heller: Ice Thickeners (available now)
Comedy Central bills Emily Heller: Ice Thickeners as its first original one-hour special to debut exclusively on a digital platform. Recorded in Seattle, Heller takes on the 2016 presidential election and living in the Trump era, as well as dealing with life-issues such as fitness and being in therapy. Released on International Women’s Day, Heller said (we presume tongue-in-cheek) that she tried unsuccessfully to have men banned from the audience. “Not only do I not want men at the show, I also don’t want them to watch it.”
Presumably the internet won’t ban you from watching the entire show below:
