‘Difficult People’: Watch a Hilarious Compilation of the Best Pet Names Arthur Gives Julie

19 August 2016 8:18 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Think back to some of the best nicknames that your friends, family or significant other has given you. Those names usually stick around for a couple of years, if not forever, right? Well in the Hulu comedy “Difficult People,” Julie’s (Julie Klausner) boyfriend, Arthur (James Urbaniak), has a slew of creative pet names that he gives her throughout the first two seasons.

The randomness of the nicknames are just too fun not to mention, and that’s why the folks at Hulu created a fun compilation video of a handful of silly things Arthur has called Julie in the past episodes. Included in the batch are names like “whiffle bat,” “water bug,” “mouse pad,” “thin mint” and the most-used “noodles.” It doesn’t stop there, there’s also “spinach,” “spray cheese” and my favorite, “lava lamp.” Check them all out in the hilarious clip below.

The Best YouTube Channels Launched in 2016

19 August 2016 7:30 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It is hard to believe, but YouTube is now more than a decade old. No longer a mere repository for videos of children on drugs and goats bleating like humans, entire careers have been made (and unmade) on the video platform. In YouTube years, a channel from 2012 is practically a dinosaur. New channels pop up every day, sometimes with unlikely faces at the helm. Here are IndieWire’s favorite channels that launched this year.

The Rock

+1.1m subscribers

Is there anything he can’t do? As if transitioning from WWE superstar to highest paid-actor in Hollywood weren’t enough, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson had to dip his toe in the YouTube waters as well. He launched his eponymous channel in June, and already has 1.4 million subscribers.

The content so far is sufficiently Rock-like, with the man never missing a pun. There’s “PokéRock,” in which YouTubers and celebrity friends like »

Julie Klausner's Difficult People "Heaven" With Luann and Sonja from Real Housewives of New York City

16 August 2016 11:59 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Worlds collided on Difficult People when Luann de Lesseps and Sonja Morgan of The Real Housewives of New York City headed to the Hulu series created by and starring Julie Klausner. For years Klausner shared her opinions on the ladies in the form of Real Housewives of New York City recaps. Her love of the ladies runs deep, so having Sonja and Luann there was "heaven," Klausner said. "I mean, listen. I love my show because we have the best and most insane random, but just wildly, fabulously diverse guest stars—doing things you wouldn't necessarily expect them to be doing. My character, like me in real life, I recapped Housewives for Vulture, and I genuinely love those women and I genuinely love those shows. »

Refinery29’s Female-Driven YouTube Channel Is A Laugh Riot

12 August 2016 3:07 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It took years of working in network television, but Julie Miller finally created the rarest of media opportunities: An insurrection.

“Riot is an uprising,” said Miller, who serves as creative director for the YouTube channel, which is backed by Refinery29. “It’s a space for women to make comedy for everyone and not feel like they have to skew male.”

Fifteen years ago, Miller was double-booked as an intern at Saturday Night Live and Comedy Central. “I was interning for Tina Fey at Weekend Update, and I spent the other half of the week at Comedy Central assisting Jessi Klein in development,” she said. “I came to New York and immediately worked for two of the best female comedians, so the stakes were really high.”

Julie Klausner on Why Pop Culture Makes ‘Difficult People’ Deeper

26 July 2016 1:40 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Late in February, when the bitter chill of January had faltered slightly, Andrea Martin and Julie Klausner spent their early morning in the Museum of Sex. Before its doors opened to the public, the two actors were perfecting a scene for “Difficult People” Season 2, Hulu’s cult favorite comedy. Starring as mother and daughter, the Martin and Klausner have a sincere rapport that makes the dozens of takes feel organically different every time. Audiences will certainly be able to tell how the comfort between the two actors has grown from Season 1 to Season 2.

Difficult People” was one of the first weekly comedy shows Hulu took a chance on after announcing its intent to produce original content. The premise was simple: veteran actors Julie Klausner and Billy Eichner play less successful, heightened versions of themselves; two best friends struggling to make it in the comedy scene in New York and experiencing many misadventures along the way. »

'Difficult People': How Julie Klausner Graduated from TV Superfan to TV Queen

14 July 2016 12:53 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

"When did comedies become half-hour dramas?"

These words, uttered by Billy Eichner via the acid pen of Julie Klausner in the newly launched second season of her Hulu sitcom Difficult People, come from a place of love. Klausner loves TV like a mother loves her child – which is to say she always wants it to do and be better. A lifelong acolyte of the medium, she's spent most of her life hovering around its fringes – consuming it by the binge-ful, recapping shows online, eventually landing staff writing gigs here and there. »

Review: ‘Difficult People’ Season 2 Proves That Sometimes, It’s Good When People Never Change

12 July 2016 8:43 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

It might be weird to admit this, since they’re fictional characters and not real friends, but it’s so nice to be back with Billy and Julie again. Hulu’s “Difficult People,” which returns for a second season today, is a show that wears its unique but tricky concept on its sleeve — focusing on the misadventures of two people who tend to reap what they sow means that much of the comedy comes from their own self-imposed downfall. And it’s so much fun to watch.

Billy Eichner Asks the Important Question: "Is There Any Difference Between Pokémon Go and Grindr?"

12 July 2016 7:46 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Pokémon Go has taken over. Look to your left while on the street and chances are there's somebody trying to capture a Pidgey, hurling balls on their phone screens. It's alarming, and fodder ripe for Julie Klausner and Billy Eichner and their alter egos, the struggling comics and professional snarky friends Julie Kessler and Billy Epstein, to take on in their Hulu series Difficult People. "I still don't understand Pokémon Go and I had somebody explain it to me three times yesterday," Klausner, star and creator of the Hulu comedy, told E! News at the Difficult People season two premiere."I'm proud of not being able to understand it. And I do think yes, there's definitely something to »

Please Continue to Compare Julie Klausner's Difficult People to Curb Your Enthusiasm—Really, She Likes It

11 July 2016 10:30 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Let's be real: Some people truly understand and appreciate the comedic joy that is Hulu's Difficult People, and then there are those who just don't comprehend what Julie Klausner and Billy Eichner are doing with their series. But the people who do enjoy it—and tell her about it—rarely disappoint Klausner, she said. In fact, it's the "best part about being a 'cult' sensation," she told E! News in a phone interview. Difficult People follows Julie Kessler (Klausner) and Billy Epstein (Eichner), struggling comics and actors, hustling for their big break. Like many beloved comedy characters before them, Julie and Billy are morally reprehensible on most occasions. Think of them as the »
