If you can’t say something nice, come sit and talk to Amy Shapiro or come and watch her new talk show, entitled, “If you can’t say something nice…” a middle class take on the famous quote, ”If you haven’t got anything nice to say about anybody, come sit next to me.” – Alice Roosevelt Longworth (1884-1980).
This month’s featured guests are, Megan Masek, Sarah Olson, and Nellie Phillips, who will join Amy to talk about TV. Why TV? Amy says, “Because it’s my everything, my babysitter, my best friend, my at home companion, my view into the outside world, and my featured guests like it too. Not at all sad and very true.”
Amy Shapiro feels most at home at home. Her hobbies are sitting and laying down. She lives deep in the heart of Brooklyn. You can find her out and about on twitter @AmyShaps.
Megan Masek originally hails from Columbus Ohio, but has lived in Greenpoint Brooklyn for the past 5 years. She spends too much time watching TV, will scratch your back if you sit next to her, and drunkenly offers to cook everyone breakfast on the weekends. When she was a little girl she wanted to grow up to be a cartoon – the closest she ever got was being her college’s official mascot for 3 years. She has cussed out 2 different cab drivers, started a lesbian bowling team called The Britney Spares and one time she coat checked 3 pizzas at a bar.
Sarah Olson is a do-gooder in the nonprofit world by day who lives with her cat and husband in Brooklyn and hates talking in front of people, but loves wine. She has a penchant for the worst and the best shows that TV has to offer, including any British old lady murder mystery or reality show about idiots on an island that has ever been made. Sarah has lots of other interests, but for some reason can never quite remember what they are.
Nellie Phillips work in post production in New York City. She works long hours and often thinks Thursday is Wednesday. She was really upset to find out she’s been singing the wrong words to the Mr. Belvedere theme song for over 15 years. Hopefully she will move on.
