Each Comedian of the Month on MoodyComedy is a comic who has never previously featured on the website. Reasons for selection can include various current projects the comedian is involved with, or perhaps recent appearances on television programmes or podcasts. There is no strict criteria however, as Comedian of the Month simply stands as a collection of recommendations, highlighting interesting and original aspects of certain comedians and their work.
January’s Comedian(s) of the Month is the American comedy podcasting duo behind the hit series, My Favorite Murder.
Television host Georgia Hardstark and comedy writer and comedian Karen Kilgariff teamed up in 2014 to create the My Favorite Murder podcast, where they talk about the crime stories that have shocked them most over the years and shaped the way they view the world. They also talk about prolific murders from their hometowns as well as the hometowns of their listeners who send their stories in.
From JonBenét Ramsey to the Alphabet Murders, this podcast is for anyone who has an interest in murder and crime that they worry might be a bit unhealthy. And Karen and Georgia are here to tell us that it’s not abnormal (or at least, they are as abnormal as you). But with nearly a quarter of a million Twitter followers and over 300k page likes on Facebook, it’s clear that those of us who obsess a little over true crime are certainly not alone.
And even if true crime isn’t really your thing, it’s hard not to get drawn in by Karen and Georgia’s lighthearted conversations. They’re not afraid of taboo, and as a result, My Favorite Murder is a surprisingly liberating listening experience.
Devilishly funny and endlessly fascinating, these two comic minds have created a franchise like no other, and My Favorite Murder continues to go from strength to strength.
