Women Who Kill

More like maim.


Rod Lott
An hour of stage comedy by female stand-ups, Women Who Kill errs in putting its not-so-secret weapon right upfront: Amy Schumer, who might just be the funniest person in America right now. Even her throwaway lines (“Do you ever have Oxycontin mouth?” she asks no one, rhetorically) pierce the flesh.

Drinking Games / From the Head

No budget? No problem!


Rod Lott

For no-budget cinema, the single location is a godsend. Set a movie entirely or mostly in one spot — one room, even — and you jussssst might be able to afford to put your thinly veiled autobiographical story onto film (OK, technically video). Such is the case for two new indie offerings: Drinking Games and From the Head.

U.S. Rep. James Lankford might want to hire a joke writer when making campaign stops and steer clear of things like war, plague and famine. Lankford is making his bid at the U.S. Senate seat that will be vacated by Tom Coburn.

Laugh it

OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff
