Julie Klausner — Crush of the Day
We’re total suckers for a pretty lady with brains, and Julie Klausner is all that and much more.
If you’re not familiar, Julie Klausner is New York’s hilarious, dazzlingly-beautiful red-haired comedian and writer. Her podcast, How Was Your Week, has received a ton of attention recently, after it was named by both Rolling Stone and GQ as one of the best comedy podcasts currently running. Julie has worked with the likes of Amy Poehler, Fred Armisen, Patton Oswalt, Mike Doughty, Sarah Silverman, Sandra Bernhard, Paul F. Tompkins, Billy Eichner, Rickie Lee Jones, Tom Scharpling, and Ira Glass.
In 2010 she published her first book, ‘I Don’t Care About Your Band‘, a stunningly funny collection of stories detailing her dating history, which was later optioned by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay’s production company for a TV series starring Lizzy Caplan.
As a writer, she’s been published in a laundry list of publications, most notably: The New York Times, New York Magazine, McSweeney’s, and a recent cover story for Spin Magazine.
