Heather McDonald is a wonky, observational comic from California who focuses on life with her kids and husband in her stand-up routine. Doubly amusing, though, is what McDonald brings to stand-up from her other jobs as a sexpert, gossip girl, and best-selling author of books like “You’ll Never Blue Ball in this Town Again.” She also worked on the TV show "Chelsea Lately" for seven years. Before her gig at Helium this week, we caught McDonald waiting for her son at karate class in the San Fernando Valley.
As someone who hosted a television show about sex, this should be important – “Loveline” with Dr. Drew Pinksy just ended. Now what?
I think it's sad. I know Dr. Drew personally and been on that show. I even called in during my sophomore year of college and asked his opinion about being an old virgin. I think a loss of stations and the brutal work might've just been tough. I don't think it's any sign that people don't want to talk about sex anymore.
I was getting ready to ask about your sex advice show, but now I have to know what advice he gave you.
His co-host Adam Carolla was like 'huh?' and thought it was weird. Dr. Drew gave the right advice: ‘Don’t worry about it. Do it at your own time and pace.’ I wrote about the experience in my “Blue Ball” book.
