So welcome to our new version of the column, now titled “Follow (From a Safe Distance) Friday.”
This week, I warmed up my frankly needing-improvement vocal cords for a very musical virtual chat with Hannah Solow (Rumpleteaser, Kiko & Tuna, annoying her husband by making up and singing songs in their shared apartment all day) about how she’s keeping it together this late in the pandemic. I changed the font on my résumé to the Star Wars font … let’s just go for it.”
You can find Hannah on Twitter at @hamstertalk and on Instagram at @babymcgoo. Instead of interviewing up-and-coming comedians we love on Twitter, we’re going live on Instagram every week to check in with some of our favorite people in comedy to get a firsthand look at how they’re handling the pandemic. She also humored me with a discussion of the connection between her name and a certain extremely popular major movie franchise: “When I was a kid, I was just so devastated and embarrassed because people would be like, ‘Is Luke Skywalker your brother?’ And I was like, ‘How dare my parents do this to me!’ But now, I’m like, you know what? She told us about her new favorite shitty TV show Rea(L)ove, a Japanese reality show in which the contestants all have a deep secret and are roasted by the hosts when they reveal them; gave some excellent advice about making things for your damn self; and did an uncanny (I assume) impression of her perma-exasperated Italian landlady.

Thanks to the coronavirus, comedians are now trapped at home like the rest of us, so we decided that while we’re all self-isolating, we’d do something a little different from our usual “Follow Friday” column.
