Michelle Buteau Doesn’t ‘Give a F*ck’
Comedian Michelle Buteau says that stand-up “saved” her life after 9/11. Nearly 20 years later, she finally has her first hour-long special on Netflix. And the explosive ‘Welcome to Buteaupia’ is long overdue. In this episode, Michelle talks about taping the special just days before New York City shut down in March, the story behind her instant-classic “nobody wants to see yo dick” #MeToo bit, the “mind fuck” of playing a pregnant woman opposite Ali Wong in Netflix’s ‘Always Be My Maybe’ while at the same time struggling to become a mother herself and a lot more.
Pre-order Michelle’s book ‘Survival of the Thickest’ on Amazon.
