the SHORTS party, like porn or air guitar proficiency is impossible to describe: you kind of have to be there to see it and believe it. This past Thursday Gavin Holland and DURKL brought SHORTS (which, btw, used to be all lowercase) back from it’s retirement for one last ASYLUM hurrah before they close down for renovations (TODAY). The evening, as per usual, involved and obscene amount of neon, both amazing and unfortunate legs in equal opportunity dance-offs, crunk-cakes (cupcakes that get you crunk, duh), Andre Bucket on a safari, a ball pit and complete abusing of the fact that bottles of champagne cost only $20. Oh, and naturally, a lot of sweat. Proceed to the photos with caution.

She also currently stars in Comedy Central's new hit animated series UGLY AMERICANS. Natasha was most recently seen in the hit movie HE'S JUST NOT THAT INTO YOU.

As soon as she graduated high school she moved to New York and attended the Stella Adler Conservatory. Upon receiving an additional degree in theater criticism from Hunter College she swiftly moved to Los Angeles and decided to aim her razor sharp wit at Hollywood instead. Her stand-up television appearances include two knock-out performances on THE TONIGHT SHOW w/ Jay Leno, THE LATE LATE SHOW w/ Craig Ferguson, LAST CALL w/ Carson Daly and she has signed on for a Comedy Central Presents television special and record deal. Natasha has been invited to perform at such festivals as The Vancouver Comedy Festival, SXSW, Sasquatch, Dublin’s Carlsberg Comedy Festival and the prestigious Montreal Comedy Festival, which she will be making her second appearance this summer in 2010.
