"Whitney Cummings was supposed to kick off a 40-city tour, beginning March 13 in Detroit, when the pandemic hit. The comedian has been holed up solo at her canyon home in Los Angeles ever since, dressed like 'Pauly Shore in the nineties,' taping episodes of podcast Good for You, taking an extra pause before cracking wise on Twitter and pondering the unknowable future of stand-up: 'As comedians, we ask people to come by the thousands into a venue and just basically exhale for two hours, shoulder-to-shoulder."

🏹 Bullseye!⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Did you know that Geena was one of the 300 women vying for a spot on the U.S archery team for the 2000 summer Olympics?⁠⠀
⁠⠀
She took up the sport at 41 and like her character in #ALeagueofTheirOwn quickly excelled! ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
While she did not qualify she did score a wild card berth at the Sydney International Golden Arrow competition in 1999 and noticed a connection with her sport of choice and the importance of women and girls seeing themselves represented in the media.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
"The 'Girls' [category] was always way at the bottom, and suddenly the line shot straight up and became the most populated category of men, women, boys and girls. And that was the year The Hunger Games and Brave came out. Girls left the theater and bought a bow. It was absolutely instant…but that’s the kind of impact that images can have.”⁠⠀
