So you never missed an episode of Making a Murderer? You were listening to Serial before it was 'cool' and you're pretty sure you're hilarious? Well, you may not be, but the ladies behind the podcast, now stage show, My Favourite Murder, definitely are.
The podcast is hosted by LA comedians-come-murder mystery mavens Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark — who also moonlights as a Cooking Channel host if she seems familiar. The duo who live for gore put their two passions together one day over brunch and what resulted was a international phenomenon, perfectly timed to debut during the Serial hiatus. A stark contrast to the standout monotonous podcast, but no less factual, the ladies deliver the grisly details with comedic timing and probing commentary as only a female comedian with a love for violent death could.
A regular on the iTunes podcast charts, My Favourite Murder bring their sellout stage show to our shores for the first time this September. A perfect night out for the inner detective in all of us, pop along for an evening of grisly details and accepted giggles, it's not insensitive when everyone's doing it — what could be better?
