Godfrey, Loren Lott, and Jenny Saldana visit Friends Like Us and discuss social media, Monique, and black representation in Disney Spaces with host Marina Franklin!   GODFREY is one of the hottest comedians on the circuit. Growing up in Chicago, he constantly got in trouble for misbehaving and being an all-around class clown. Godfrey's Nigerian parents unknowingly encouraged his bad behavior by showing him classic comedy films from an early age. While performing impressions of his college football teammates, Godfrey realized his irreverent style of comedy might be more than just a hobby.. As one of the most dominant forces in the comedy circuit, Godfrey has been seen on stages from New York and Los Angeles to Dubai. Along with his own one-hour special on Comedy Central, Season 2 of Netflix's Tiffany Hadish Presents: They Ready. Godfrey starred recently in HBO Max “That Damn Michaels Che show, the FX pilot "Bronx Warrants," adding to his onscreen credits which include ZOOLANDER, "30 Rock," and a recurring role on "Louie." Godfrey also stars alongside Shaquille O'Neal on the TruTV series, "Upload," which is now going into its second season. SeasAs of Season 16, he is currently one of the recurring cast members of the improv comedy show Wild 'N Out on VH1 and HBO MAX's That Damn Michael Che. Loren Lott is a California girl from San Diego.  At a young age Loren's family knew she would entertain because she would line up stuffed animals, toys and her twin brother, at the bottom of her tree house and give grand performances.  Loren dreamed of entertaining, but her mother, Sharian Lott, told her at age 7 she wouldn't be able to go to Knott's Berry Farm if she were famous so Loren decided to pursue other things, but Sharian did tell Loren that at 13 she could ask her again. To Sharian's surprise when Loren turned 13 the only gift she wanted was a subscription to backstage.com so she could start submitting herself for auditions and Sharian accepted.  After sending hundreds of bold messages to agents Loren finally got one in Hollywood along with a manager a month later. After pursuing her dreams in California for several years, Loren moved to Atlanta where she received a BA in Mass Media Arts with a concentration in radio/tv/film from Clark Atlanta University.  Loren continued acting while in Atlanta appearing live in SHREK THE MUSICAL at the Alliance Theatre and on several Television shows including GREENLEAF, THE GAME, TALES, FATAL ATTRACTION, POWERS, a feature film called TAG, and several independent projects.  While in Atlanta Loren also got cast for season 14 of American idol where she made it to Top 16! After American Idol Loren started her higher theatre career, landing the role of Gladys Night in MOTOWN: THE MUSICAL understudying Diana Ross, in the National tour as well as the Broadway company in New York.  After taking a year off Broadway, Loren returned when she booked the job of a swing in ONCE ON THIS ISLAND.  Loren then appeared live as CeCe Winans in BORN FOR THIS the Musical in Boston making her leading lady debut before returning to ONCE ON THIS ISLAND two months later, to take over the lead role of Timoune for a few months.. Aside from professional acting Loren enjoys making internet content and has managed to create and collaborate several videos that have racked up millions of views across her social media platforms.  Loren considers herself very blessed to be continuously working and gaining support.  She adores her family and is grateful for all of the sacrifices they have made for her dreams.  Loren's ultimate goal is to be a Disney Princess and leave a legacy of inspiring the next generation, as well as to become a Superhero. Loren's dream is to inspire people to live broader than our contained versions of happiness, and Love God and love their neighbor as they love themselves.

The comic hosts a night of killer comedy from his pals, including Michelle Wolf, Jimmy Carr, Steph Tolev, Jeff Ross, Dave Attell, Ian Edwards, The Goddamn Comedy Jam, Josh Adam Meyers  Jessica Kirso, Ronny Chieng, Burr doesn't exactly make it difficult to follow him and it helps that Michelle Wolf, arguably the only watchable act, is terrific form. Wolf effectively utilises her 10 minutes with a provocative set about the hypocrisy of yass queening, both in America and abroad. The comedian's delivery doesn't skip a beat and her set sticks to the purpose of sucha  showcase by spotlighting a distinctive point of view.The British-Irish comedian Jimmy Carr comes up next with an act that starts off strong but quickly devolves into second-hand embarrassment-inducing territories. Carr seems to evidently be of the opinion that risque material equals funny jokes. But as is evidenced from his yawn-inducing set, both those things aren't exclusive to each other. It doesn't seem to be getting any better when Canadian comedian Steph Tolev takes the stage; her material is so unforgettable that for a second, I was convinced that it was a mistake that Burr ended up putting her in the lineup.To be fair to Jeff Ross and Dave Attell, the duo atleast make an effort, albeit in their old-men-who-give-no-fuck type of roundabout way. But unfortunately, their material is a bunch of one-liners assembled next to each other that work better as inside jokes than punchlines at a comedy fest. At one point, the duo bring up Burr for their famed “roastmaster” segment and the resulting exchange is funny enough to register but by no means is memorable.I'll say this much about Ian Edwards: he appears to be heading somewhere. The comedian does an ingenious bit on Michael Jackson that I quite dug and another on The Handmaid's Tale that is nothing short of brilliant. The trouble is in the fine-tuning of both these bits, which suffer from an evident lack of both polish and delivery. Still, for someone clueless about Edwards comic voice, the set acts as an apt entry point and for me, Edwards felt like the only discovery of the lineup.The last three acts of Bill Burr Presents: Friends Who Kill are perplexing to say the last and almost entirely impossible to wrap your head around. Actually, there's no point beating around the bush — it's an absolute trainwreck. Worse, it's a trainwreck three times over. It goes downhill with Jessica Kirtsen's set; the comedian's delivery and material seem to be at odds with each other. And then, it gets significantly worse when Josh Adam Meyers and his band The Goddamn Comedy Jam takes the stage to deliver a musical comedy piece, which is certainly the lowest point of the show. Even kids who didn't study anything for their exams would have fared better. There's no way that Burr was in his right mind when he curated this set. Actually, none of this would make sense even if Burr was held at gunpoint and asked to come up with a lineup of 10 comics without warning. At some point, Ronnie Chieng appears on the stage to sing Katy Perry's 'Teenage Dream'. If you are a normal functioning adult, then at this point, your soul would have left your body wondering if this is what Bill Burr thinks is funny, then the world is surely under threat. Because by now, it's not only disappointing, underwhelming, or even boring. It's outright★ Support this podcast on Patreon ★
