If you are a thirty-something adult and have not yet seen The Mindy Project tv show, you are seriously missing out. I’ve always enjoyed Mindy Kaling as a writer, actress and comedian because I find her to be relatable, honest and of course funny. And who can forget her character on The Office? But that is not what has kept me watching the show. I watch because it is truly hysterical.
The show tackles things no one else has ever discussed on television. Whether poking fun at her weight or nationality, there is no shortage of absolute brilliance and bold, brash honesty with the writing. There is also a hint of feminism that I admire. Her character recently used a nose hair trimmer in an episode in front of her boyfriend. She then tackled the issue of sex where her boyfriend declared ‘I slipped’ and proceeded to have an entire episode on the subject making this joke “My office only has one entrance and I don’t know if that’s good enough for you anymore.”
Some other one-liners that I enjoyed…
