Mindy Kaling has lived many lives: the obedient child of immigrant professionals, a timid chubster afraid of her own bike, a Ben Affleck–impersonating Off-Broadway performer and playwright, and, finally, a comedy writer and actress prone to starting fights with her friends and coworkers with the sentence “Can I just say one last thing about this, and then I swear I’ll shut up about it?” Perhaps you want to know what Mindy thinks makes a great best friend (someone who will fill your prescription in the middle of the night), or what makes a great guy (one who is aware of all elderly people in any room at any time and acts accordingly), or what is the perfect amount of fame (so famous you can never get convicted of murder in a court of law), or how to maintain a trim figure (you will not find that information in these pages). If so, you’ve come to the right book, mostly! In Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?, Mindy invites readers on a tour of her life and her unscientific observations on romance, friendship, and Hollywood, with several conveniently placed stopping points for you to run errands and make phone calls. Mindy Kaling really is just a Girl Next Door—not so much literally anywhere in the continental United States, but definitely if you live in India or Sri Lanka. This enhanced eBook includes an audio introduction from the author; audio commentary from Mindy’s friends, including The Office costar B. J. Novak and Parks and Recreation creator Michael Schur; bonus photos, including an exclusive “Avalanche of Awkwardness” slideshow of never-before-seen childhood photos with audio commentary; and three full chapters read by the author.

How the internet transformed television Before HBO’s hit show Insecure, Issa Rae’s comedy about being a nerdy black woman debuted as a YouTube web series The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl, her response to the absence of diverse black characters on the small screen. Broad City, a feminist sitcom now on Comedy Central, originated as a web series on YouTube, developed directly out of funny women Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson’s real-life friendship. These unconventional stories took advantage of the freedom afforded outside the traditional television system: online. Open TV shows how we have left “the network era” far behind and entered the networked era, with the web opening up new possibilities for independent producers, entrepreneurs, and media audiences. Based on interviews with writers, producers, show-runners, and network executives, visits to festivals and award shows, and the experience of producing his own series, Aymar Jean Christian argues that the web brought innovation to television by opening up series development to new producers, fans, and sponsors that had previously been excluded. Online access to distribution provides creative freedom for indie producers, allows for more diverse storytelling from marginalized communities, and introduces new ways of releasing and awarding shows. Open TV is essential reading for anyone interested in the changing environment of television and how the internet can inspire alternatives to what’s on TV tonight.

"The comedic memoir, a culmination of personal experience through a humorous and ironical lens, provides a unique and entertaining perspective into human experience. Comedy is often treated as if it were inconsequential, yet many comedy scholars contend nothing reveals more about a culture's values, attitudes and concerns. As both the memoir and comedy are representations and interpretations of human experience, the combination of the two fused together through the comedic memoir produce a provocative and increasingly popular genre of literature. This thesis offers an in-depth analysis of how the increasing prominence of the comedic memoir is indicative of American cultural changes, particularly in relation to women and feminism, as women prove to dominate the genre. Through Tina Fey's Bossypants, Mindy Kaling's Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (and Other Concerns) and Amy Poehler's Yes Please, I examine the comedic discourse and strikingly prominent themes of body image, romance, career family and the elusive concept of balance within. Fey, Kaling and Poehler's discussions of these themes provide a cultural perspective that attempts to point out many of the absurdities of current expectations of women, particularly those in relation to the postfeminist movement, which ultimately contends that traditional feminism is inherently flawed. Through humor, these comedians present many of the absurdities present within postfeminst expectations, yet simultaneously and covertly support these themes to be prominent and defining aspects of women's lives today. The female comedic memoir therefore suggests complicated aspects of identity, feminism and place within society, as these women present their life stories, struggles, triumphs, experiences, and the endeavors they have had to overcome within the male dominated career of comedy, as well as debunk the myth and common cultural assumption that "women aren't funny.""
