Seven Selfies With Amanda Duarte



It’s a selfie world, and we’re not going to fight it anymore. So our series, Seven Selfies, asks an artist to share seven photos of themselves, taken by themselves, to share a day in their life. We’ve already featured Danny Lobell, Pete Dominick, Blair Socci, Doug Smith & Matt Wayne, Kurt Braunohler & Lauren Cook and Matteo Lane! Our latest features writer, performer and female drag queen who is the host and creator of Dead Darlings, a fantastic show where comedy writers get to resurrect those precious pieces of writing that they love but have had to kill for the sake of a larger piece. You’ve heard the phrase “kill your darlings?” Well this is a chance for artists to bring them back to life.

The next resurrection takes place at Judson Memorial Church, and it’s a free event with a suggested donation of $10 to benefit Emily’s List. This month’s show is hosted by Amanda Duarte as always and features Lauren Duca (Teen Vogue), Josh Gondelman (Last Week Tonight, Modern ), Mac Rogers (playwright: The Honeycomb, Steal the Stars)
and special guest Raquel Cion (cabarettista, breast cancer survivor). It’s also the one year anniversary of the series, so it’s a very special night taking place November 8, at 8pm at Judson Memorial Church. Here’s where to go for information and tickets.

Now, on to the selfies!

This is how long the N train took from Canal to Atlantic.

The Petty Level Orange one-person party I threw on my stoop the day I finally got my insane neighbor and his two cloned attack dogs evicted!

Amanda feels things. Deeply. Amanda is a deeply feeling person. This is why Amanda needs 3x the numbing cream that normal people need when getting gnarly purple veins lasered off her nose.

I like to think that this pic of me posing next to a GIANT hibiscus on the west side bike path makes me look both sporty and very tiny

I was really excited about the Papadopoulous plea and texted this to a friend!

The world is full of wonderful things. This was a really good day.

Do NOT waste your money on the off-brand black peel-off mask on Amazon. It removed exactly zero blackheads from my face and dripped and stained my favorite FEMINIST STATEMENT TEE
