Poupak's Parisian Life in New York

I am a French-Iranian woman with a passion for comedy. I have been lucky enough to be performing all over New York since 2010. I was a TV producer and a head writer for a morning live news show in France, as well as a free lance journalist and a book editor for many years.

Now, I am a life and a career coach (member of ICF), an improviser, a writer, and a show producer. I love my life!

I am a performer at the UCB & sometimes produce shows at The PIT in New York.

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver: Ferguson, MO and Police Militarization

John Oliver nails it in his segment about Ferguson. A brilliant example of how comedy can be used to make you think critically. Pocketwatch shares their version here

Thank you.

reblogging here because i can see this being relevant to anyone who’s ever tried to get out of an abusive relationship

Reblogging because that last comment made me reread the whole thing in a new light and realize this could be vital information. So, putting it out there for everyone, and hoping no one ever really needs it.

For Everyone who may need it, and even for those who don’t.

Well, who knows, maybe one daay we’ll all need this.

THIS IS POWERFUL

In case you missed it, another unarmed black teenager was gunned down over the weekend. 18-year-old Mike Brown had his hands in the air when he was shot multiple times. Naturally, news outlets only want to talk about the supposed looting that took place while people were protesting his death. And the photos they used to report his death look more like the ones on the right than the ones on the left. The Root did a great piece on the Twitter backlash.
