You Had To Be There #96: Jessimae Peluso


This week, Sara and Nikki share the terror and elation of hosting Tuesday’s premiere of Nikki and Sara LIVE while momentarily shutting out the demands of judgy Twitterers and next week’s show. Local comic and new friend Jessimae Peluso (Twitter) leads the ladies in a vivid chat about the vicious zits faced by all three at some point in their lives. In a surprise cameo, Drunk Diddy himself pipes in to postulate the perfect pustule-killing potion. Eventually the topic shifts to something even more embarrassing than acne: the cocky posturing nearly every stand-up commits when starting out. Talking Pee brings a calmer end to a breathless episode, with shout-outs to Eliot Glazer’s webseries Eliot’s Sketch Pad, HBO’s Enlightened, stretch pants in general, and the Sean Kimerling Testicular Cancer Foundation, for which Jessimae’s been making some crazy awareness videos.

And don’t forget: Tuesday. 11pm/10c. MTV. Nikki and Sara LIVE. Tune in! Okay? Good talk.
