If you were remotely curious as to what the future of female comedy looks like, focus your attention no further than Jenna Marbles. Mizz Marbles, née Mourey, has one of the most inappropriately appropriate potty-mouths I’ve seen on a girl (other than myself), two crazy dogs, a rockin’ bod, and overall humor to compare with big hitters of Youtube and popular culture.
She records all of her comedic bits every Wednesday and covers a variety of topics. Some of her most recent rants include: Thoughts on Shark Week and What Dogs Do When You’re Not Home. All of her videos are laced with good natured potty-mouthisms and over-all A+ witticisms on the current state of the nation (see: Cooking with Sarah Palin).
This aside, what I believe is arguably the best Marbles video out there (currently around 9 MILLION views) is her take on How to Avoid Talking to People You Don’t Want to Talk To - teaching women everywhere how to get that creepy ass dude who’s been following you around the club/bar and is now all up in your business, out of your business, with the simplest of facial expressions.
The number one thing that Marbles does right is completely not give a flying f*ck what she says. She’s offensive in all the right ways and then includes proper disclosures when she knows that she might really piss people off (see: People I would F*ck). She also keeps her videos super simple. Her badassness removes the need to have any sort of fancy shmancy video editing, that only adds to the humor attached to her crazy thought. Marbles also is heavily engaged with her audiences online – which works to her advantage because she is then able to crowd source the type of content the Marbleites are interested in, thus helping increase the viewership of her videos.
Something I’d like to see out of the Marbles videos, though, is a change of scenery. Of course, filming from a nondescript location in what’s apparently her house certainly helps add to the simplicity of the Marbles nature, however, anyone can sit in front of their cool computer and record funny rants.
If you need a quick inside glance as to how to make awesome Youtube videos – check out Marbles’ page… and lose your marbles along the way. If you need the instant satisfaction which only the interwebs provide, here’s her Twitter and Facebook fan page. Enjoy
