Alex Borstein: Drop Dead Gorgeous In a Down-to-Earth Bombshell Sort of Way (review)

Alex Borstein is the voice of Family Guy mom Lois, but even the carefully calculated outlandishness of that series won’t prepare you for the wickedly mean and bitter comedy Borstein dishes out as herself. Smartly, tartly feminist, Borstein’s delicious ranting takes on Hollywood’s disdain for women, as characters in its fictions and as performers, and for the constraining boxes it tries to force half the human race into… and often succeeds at doing. But Borstein — hoorah! — remains a free spirit and a big mouth through this hour-long standup routine, hitting her targets smack in the bullshit with every shot. (Extras? Only a behind-the-scenes tour of Family Guy by Borstein.) [buy at Amazon]
