“I'm supposed to pick a different podcast every week, but it's getting hard not to just review Throwing Shade every time because it has been on a roll lately. I have a friend who just got into it and listened to every episode in a week. It can be done, people. Catch up!” - Splitsider
“While I'm sure Erin Gibson and Bryan Safi put a lot of work into their podcast, Throwing Shade, I love how it sounds so effortlessly funny.” - USA Today
“She is a perfect example of my new favorite brand of feminism. She takes all the hatred of women and stupid depressing stereotypes and makes fun of them. ” - Bitch Buzz
“Our girl-crush, Erin Gibson.” - Bust Magazine
Erin Gibson is an expert at mixing social commentary, political satire, and frank sexual talk into nice, neat little comedy packages. Based in Los Angeles, she currently writes and directs for Funny or Die, but built her fan base as the creator/host of "Modern Lady" on Current TV. As an actress and comedian, she’s been seen on "Chelsea Lately," "The Kroll Show," "Parks and Rec," "Community," "Key and Peele," and clip shows galore. She’s also a regular blogger for Huffington Post and her Twitter following is pretty cool. Please do not startle her. She will scream.
Bryan Safi is an Emmy Award-winning writer, performer and self-proclaimed international supermodel. Outside of writing and directing at Funny or Die, he also created and hosted Current TV's Webby Award-winning segment "That's Gay", has written on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" as well as jokes for Joan Rivers on "Fashion Police." The New York Times, The Hollywood Reporter and USA Today have written about him and he was named one of Out Magazine's "Out 100". Bryan is a regular performer at the Upright Citizens Brigade, is a blogger for The Huffington Post and hearts Twitter. If he was allowed in, he would prefer walking in the high-paced fashion shows of Milan and Paris vs. the more pedestrian ones of New York.
