AMAZON: Check out Elayne Boosler's new box set! The "timeless" comic just turned 68 but can't get a Netflix special. She explains:
"FULL HONESTY: I found out Netflix turned me down for a special because, are you wearing your WTF?? hats? I didn't have enough Instagram followers. That's all they look at. 'Oh yes, we're huge fans, you're hilarious, a legend. But the numbers show no interest in you now.' Peeps, I have a new special ready to go but no place to put it. If you would just follow me on Instagram, even if you have to make an account there to do it, it costs you nothing, and if you follow me there I'll come to your homes and make you cole slaw, or the side dish of your choice. Love, Elayne"
