Thanks to COVID-19, the actors are trapped at home like the rest of us, so we decided to do something a little different from our usual “Follow Friday” column while we are all isolated. Instead of interviewing up-and-coming comedians we love on Twitter, we go live to Instagram every week to check in with some of our favorite people in comedy to get a glimpse of how they’re handling the pandemic. So welcome to our new version of the column, now titled “Follow (from a safe distance) Friday”.

She also got nostalgic (and a little confused) of a well-known, very crappy, recently closed club clothing store: thongs on the floor – like, did anyone even work there? I don’t know if I have ever spoken to a Wet Seal employee.
