YouTubing-To-Obscure-Shameless-Self-Promotion Wednesdays: Ce n'est plus Mercredi

Sorry I'm late and no, I have not watched The Ritches, the new FX show where Eddie Izzard and Minnie Driver play the parental wing of a family of con artists. Perhaps that's because I'm all but broken-hearted that the Yemen-born Brit has been forced to wield an American accent. (That said, it seems to have worked for Hugh Laurie.) In honor/instead, here's one of the best parts of his stand-up show Dress to Kill -- a tough call, to be sure. This hails from the encore, and it's totally mostly in French.

THIS! IS! THE WEEEEEEEEEKLYYYYYY!! (Just saw 300.) Thanks to a slow week, I wound up doing the lead review for Mira Nair's The Namesake. Nair is interviewed right here. I also capsulized Starter for Ten, an Editor's Pick (bottom) on weekend showings of Gun Grazy and Christmas in July, and, in addition, also Rep.
