You Need To Watch 'Toast of London' On Netflix, You Donut!

You Need To Watch 'Toast of London' On Netflix, You Donut!

Celebrated UK actor-comedian Matt Berry has been a fantastically funny man since his days on The Mighty Boosh, The IT Crowd, Snuff Box, and his most recent project that has garnered much attention since 2015's Season 3 of his hit show, Toast of London. Playing down-on-his-luck, Shakespearean-trained actor Steven Toast, Berry weaves his writing skills and acting skills at the same time (writing alongside frequent collaborator Arthur Mathews). Here's a taste of the wit involved in the show:

Berry's sense of humor takes place in a variety of forms: slapstick, dialogue, callbacks, and even music. Yes, music. In every episode, there's a moment of fourth-wall breaking where he sings about a certain situation stemming from the episode that makes him a more vulnerable man rather than the arrogant, looking-for-glory actor we know his character as.

Berry, who actually is trained and very involved with music, has released a few albums of his own, including the theme song to the show, "Take My Hand." Additionally, the show proceeds to envelop the audience in the music itself because that's how well written the show is.

It grabs you with the outrageousness, shocks you with the actions, but overall entertains you in a way that many shows lack today.

A running joke throughout the series is Steven's encounters with Clem Fandango, one of the guys who records Steven for various parts: a submarine voiceover, an adult film, and thousands of pages worth of GPS locations in India. Take a look:

Matt Berry's genius crafts a well-rounded comedy that is part-Seinfeld, part-Office, even part-Monty Python. It revolves around a struggling British actor and the situations he gets into so that he can achieve success in the entertainment business. Don't take my word completely, though, go see for yourself! Toast of London is on Netflix!

Is Meaningful Casual Sex A Paradox?

Why noncommittal sex is more complicated than we'd like to think.


I lost my virginity to a graduate student from Los Angeles. We’d met at a rundown cafe whose Yelp page complained of an alleged rat infestation. His name was Ken and he was 25. What drew me to him was the peculiar way his mouth was perpetually fixed into a sideways, half-moon shape that was like a smirk but without any trace of smugness. But the two most striking parts of Ken by far were the dinner plate roundness of his face and his small, expressionless teddy bear eyes. Of the things that mattered to him, there was his best friend, a college dropout who sold computer parts in Toronto, and sex.

The Blessing of Lacking Sex Appeal

To all the fellow non "it" girls out there


Lacking sex appeal is not a desirable thing. It makes you fee not ugly, but wrong. Not having charisma is not a life goal. It doesn't make you fee friendless, but isolated. Not being the "it" girl happens, and tonight (and every nigh prior to this)

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

It is truly the worst place to be

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

Look. If you are anything like me, complaining about being single is such a hard thing to because you are genuinely happy for your friends, but as they continue to be happy in their relationships, the ever crushing weight of being the single friends can become overwhelming. For context, my primary friend group consists of four people. We are all roommates and it is a great time here. All three of my roommates have boyfriends/girlfriends, which makes our friend group of four quickly jump to seven, and it is wonderful! I love my roommates so much and I love their S.O's, but no matter how much I love them I always get extremely jealous and sad. The sad thing is that the only part that ever truly ends up bugging me is that since I am single, they are my go-to top priorities and it has been really hard to watch myself slip from the top of their go-to's to not being their go to when they feel the weight of the world. What makes it harder is that expressing that I feel alone and unwanted makes me sound jealous and like I don't want my friends to hangout with their people. I get it. I do. But there are just days I want to be someone's first pick and I'm not.
