You can watch more of her stand up here. She has a newsletter—I HOPE YOU MISSED IT—of all the political news she really hopes you missed. She makes it funny, though (she promises!).
In 2022, Chronicle Books published Ginny’s second humor collection I’M MORE DATEABLE THAN A PLATE OF REFRIED BEANS. Excerpts have been featured in the New Yorker, Bustle, and the Cut, and it was named a top Vulture humor book of 2022 and a New Yorker best book of 2022. She has a new book for Chronicle out Fall 2023.
In 2021, Ginny wrote Yes We Mustard, an Audible Original scripted comedy about a corrupt condiments tech startup. It was selected for their Best of 2021 list, and was rated their #1 comedy in 2021. You can listen here. She’s currently working on a new Audible project, the Great Indoors, due Fall 2023.
In 2019, Ginny published a book of humorous essays, Toxic Femininity in the Workplace, with HarperCollins, which was included on Vulture’s list of top 10 comedy books of 2019.
Ginny tweets what can only be described as “a reasonable amount” @ginnyhogan_. Her Twitter is the best way to find out where she’s doing stand up, what she’s writing, who she has a crush on, what she ate for breakfast, and perhaps the source of that rash. You can also subscribe to her monthly newsletter here.
Featuring Jess Cooley and Shelley Gruenburg
