5 Questions With Meredith MacNeill Of IFC’s “Baroness Von Sketch Show”

If you haven’t caught IFC’s award-winning, late-night satire Baroness von Sketch Show (Wednesdays), you’re missing a good time. Just starting its fourth season, the all-female comedy series features Meredith MacNeill, Carolyn Taylor, Aurora Browne and Jennifer Whalen. MacNeill is the only star who doesn’t hail from a comedy background (her costars are Second City alums), so when she commits to a sketch — oh boy, does she commit. “For me it’s such a fun, fantastic, freeing place to play really close to where it shouldn’t work when you’re pushing it that it does,” she shares on her often over-the-top absurdities.

Paul Teutul Jr. of “American Chopper” Talks Shop, Pop and More

It’s hard to believe that it was 2003 when Discovery Channel first introduced us to American Chopper and the fascinating custom motorcycles of father-and-son team Paul Teutul and Paul Teutul Jr. During the series’ run and their follow-up Senior vs. Junior, their craftsmanship and creativity was often overshadowed by their turbulent and explosive personalities, which eventually led to a bitter estrangement and Paul Jr. establishing his own company, Paul Jr. Designs.

At their meetup, a then 50-something-year-old Fauna unraveled a story that was truly unbelievable. If you’re not from California, chances are you won’t be familiar with the Hodel name. Fauna was the granddaughter to the infamous Los Angeles physician George Hodel, who in 1949 was accused and acquitted of molesting his 14-year-old daughter Tamar (Fauna’s mother), as well as being linked to the most […]
