Jena Friedman: the outrageous talkshow host women have been waiting for

Today 06:04 GMT

Yet the newbie talkshow Soft Focus With Jena Friedman is thrillingly unexpected: a bold blend of feminist politics and heart-in-your-mouth edginess.

Created by Friedman, a New York-based standup whose show American C*nt (her spelling) got rave reviews at the Edinburgh festival fringe in 2015, Soft Focus is a gonzo-style magazine show, whose second offering is now on Adult Swim. Although it has only run for a slim total of 40 minutes so far, it has featured a wannabe cannibal on a dating game, a suspected murderer running for president and the CEO of a sex doll company.
