Big Lil Kid Podcast

Jay sits down with comedian Tooky Kavanagh to talk comedy, childhood and butchers her name at least thrice. It's a good listen!  Subscribe to our Patreon at: http://www.patreon.com/BigLilKidPod With razor sharp wit and a charm once described as “ineffable,” Tooky (rhymes with cookie) Kavanagh speaks her mind with honesty, charisma, and edge. After just a few years on the scene, Tooky has already performed in New York, Denver, and all over New England. She regularly opens for Myq Kaplan when he visits Boston, performed on a Multiple Sclerosis benefit show with Dr. Jonathan Katz, has opened for Eugene Mirman, and has performed on lineups alongside comedy notables Gary Gulman, Jessica Kirson, and Alingon Mitra, to name a few. In March of 2018 and 2019, she was selected to perform on the Comedy Central UP NEXT audition showcase, and in both April 2018 and February 2019, she was selected to audition for the prestigious Montreal Just For Laughs festival. She was selected to be a featured comedian in the 2020 Boston Calling festival… but we’ll just see what happens in 2021 instead. Additional standup credits include: The 2020 Rogue Island Comedy Festival; December 2018 Comic-In-Residence at The Comedy Studio; The 2017 Women In Comedy Festival; Thunderfest 2017; The 2017 Boston Comedy Festival; Boston Comedy Chicks; The 2017 Boston Comedy Arts Festival; headlining Laughing Liberally Boston; headlining It Ain’t Over ‘Til It’s Dover; headlining Stand-Up Thursdays at John Harvard’s; co-producing Token: Rethink What Comedy Can Be at ImprovBoston; featuring at The Producer’s Club in Manhattan, NY; and Comic Sit-In at The Riot Theater.  She cohosts the Loud Women podcast with friend and producer Marissa Emmanuele, hosts The Rehash on 2MBstudios, and cohosts NORM!: The Cheers Podcast on Facebook Live. As an actor, she is a founding cast member of Suzzy, was a regular cast member of the “Redo Crew” for Starstruck: Close Encounters of the Awkward Kind, starred as The Humbled Hobo in a 48 Hour Film Project film, is a featured character in the short film Woman Unknown, and was a recurring character in the web series, Paid For By.   She can be seen regularly at Boston-based institutions such as The Comedy Studio, ImprovBoston, and Laugh Boston. Also, she's the one who described her own charm as “ineffable,” but it's still true!

8 Months Away From The Racist Diet Industry Part 3: The BS Body Standard Culture with Guest Tooky Kavanagh

8 Months Away From Being Fat Again

We're back and very excited to have the third part of our look into the racist diet industry!! On this week's episode we have the very funny and very fantastic Tooky Kavanagh with us to discuss her experiences as a Black woman in the American diet culture. She gives us an insight into her upbringing as someone thought to be "Not Black enough" and "Not White Enough" and sometimes Italian, depending on the Uber driver she gets. Tooky explains how changing schools changed her own outlook, how school girls are "trash" and shares a story about a train platform in LA. All three of us share our thoughts on the body positivity movement, as well as "plus size models". We're dishing a lot, spilling tea and Tooky would like for you all to know that she's sorry.  Also, follow Tooky on Social Media: @Tookymonster.

Justin Timberlake - Man of the Woods (w/ Tooky Kavanagh)

Make it Stop: A Bad Music Podcast

Strap on a decorative banjo and get out yer picklin' jars, cuz we're prepping for a musical apocalypse on this episode of Make it Stop! The target of our most recent ire is platinum selling, Superbowl ruining, troll-serenading superstar Justin Timberlake's latest gasp at relevancy, his 2018 mountaineering misfire, Man of the Woods. Featuring a cacaphony of ill-placed musical references and clumsy metaphors, this bloated 16 track mistake finds the uncooked ramen-headed heartthrob of yesteryear reinventing himself as a modern day Grizzly Adams. Burning down this forest of bad ideas with us is none other than local comedian Tooky Kavanagh, who has performed multiple stand up sets dedicated to the scientifically accurate claim that JT isn't just a mediocre white man profiting off Black culture and doing Janet Jackson dirty, but he's also a common marsupial.
