by Molly Lambert


Welcome To The Good Life: ‘Ye and We’

The re-united State (of America), that means all of Stella, some of Reno 911, the cast of Viva Variety, and wow I didn’t realize Kerri Kinney was the only female in the crew. Is it because she played such a wide range of characters so convicingly, or because Kerri is naturally kind of a wigs and weaves chameleon, like Diablo Cody, Sienna Miller, or Tyra. Yeah so The State is performing new material at UCB. Here’s hoping for “Porcupine Racetrack 2.”
