Moshe Kasher and Natasha Leggero in New Orleans

Posted By on Fri, Mar 29, 2013 at 5:08 PM

Comedians Moshe Kasher and Natasha Leggero do standup at One Eyed Jacks Monday. It's a junket for the two Los Angeles-based comedians, and they are joined by Reno 911!'s Tom Lennon, as well as local comedians Chris Trew and Ariel Elias. Kasher is the driving force behind the show because he's a fan of New Orleans. It's Leggero's first performance in the city. Interviews with both are part of this preview, which addresses the hairy wrists he works for jokes in the clip above.

Leggero was a child actress and went to college to appease her mother, she says. She earned a degree in theater criticism from Hunter College in New York. Then as she was starting her comedy career in Los Angeles, she saw a comic on stage who had also moved from the East Coast to L.A., and that comic was simply criticizing life in California. Leggero says she realized she could simply stand on stage and "critique society." She has had parts on a number of shows including Burning Love, Reno 911!, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia and others. Like Kasher, she's a regular panelist on Chelsea Handler's E! show Chelsea Lately. Below is a compilation of Leggero's critiques of various celebrities, performers and news items.
