Bloggernacle Back Bench: Introducing three new blogs, a travel site and a comedy web series

Power pick: Speaking of new, have you heard about “Pretty Darn Funny”? You will. This new comedy web series from Deseret Book follows Gracie Moore, a mom who decides to make her own comedy troupe with the goal to be both funny and clean. Each episode runs between 6-8 minutes and are released each Monday. You can watch the first two here! I love that the Modern Mormon Men via blogger May Jones sat down for a “Pretty Darn Funny Interview with Lisa Valentine Clark” (who plays Gracie Moore) to get the inside scoop. Here’s a sample. May Jones: "You’ve been doing some producing as well as offering input to the writing on the show as well. How does that compare to just showing up and acting?" Lisa Valentine Clark: "It's really different to be on the producing side of things, but I loved giving my opinion and point of view because it is a show, after all, about women in comedy, and I have a lot of experience and opinions about that. I appreciated the fact that Jeff Parkin and Jared Cardon asked me on to this project as an actor and producer. I learned a lot, and I think it adds legitimacy to the project, because I'm a super Mormon-y mom to a lot of kids who wants to laugh, and that's a big part of our demographic. I didn't want Gracie to say or do anything I really wouldn't do or say.” Click in for more and to watch the trailer.
