HBO’s new show “Girls” is taking the world by storm, which is odd because it features nary a vampire nor dragon nor crime boss. It’s credited for depicting “realistic” women (in other words, they don’t resemble the pun-spouting sentient Soho mannequins from “Sex And The City”). “Girls” has firmly planted itself on the “funny and extremely uncomfortable” end of the comedy spectrum, a place usually reserved for male curmudgeons like Louis C.K. So this is no “female” comedy, it’s just a comedy.
You should watch it for all of those reasons. But you should also watch it (**and now, to completely lose whatever lady readers we charmed with the above paragraph**) because it stars the smoking hot Allison Williams. We’re talking hot enough to depict Kate Middleton in a Funny or Die sketch. The 23-year-old Yale grad plays “Marnie” on the show, and is the daughter of NBC News anchor and comedy dabbler Brian Williams. Lucky for your eyes, the only thing she seems to have inherited from him is comedic timing, as you can see below.
