On the Emmy nominated show “Burning Love,” she played the woman not wearing pants.

Natasha, you KILLED at the Franco roast. Love the Lorne Michaels bit for Samberg and the Phil Hartman one for Hader. The reaction shots on them afterward were amazing. How does it feel to have been the funniest person there that night?

NatashaAndMoshe20 karma

You are sweet I don't agree. But thank you.

NatashaAndMoshe32 karma

ignominy8888 karma

It's gotta be with Dave Chappelle!!!!

NatashaAndMoshe15 karma

I agree one of the great tragedies of the show is that Dave was never on. Trivia fact: he was once IN The room for a champs taping during the LEX STEELE ep.

aidsymcgee14 karma

Were you worried before you started dating that if you break up you'll be in the same industry and things will be particularly hard to manage?

NatashaAndMoshe42 karma

Moshe: No, this dik too bomb to ever have relationships.

NatashaAndMoshe35 karma

Yo Natasha, what was the best thing that happened off-camera at a roast?

NatashaAndMoshe57 karma

I smoked a joint with Snoop during a commercial break.

aidsymcgee9 karma

Do you think young peoples' focus on political correctness will:

(a) revert back a little and we'll be left with a more progressive society; or

(b) revert back too much and some sort of huge alt-right movement will emerge?

NatashaAndMoshe18 karma

MOSHE: I think things go in cycles and when a horrible president is elected we will focus on different things than blogs and costumes

NatashaAndMoshe13 karma

If those are the choices I choose b.

vaginalabyss9 karma

Ok Natasha, honesty time. How hairy is Moshe?

NatashaAndMoshe19 karma

Moshe, I remember hearing on the champs that you never had a serious girlfriend/relationship. Is Natasha your first serious girlfriend? If so, Natasha: did this freak you out a little to know that you were marrying Moshe and you were his first "real" gf?

NatashaAndMoshe26 karma

MOSHE: Yeah Natasha is my first serious girlfriend. My new one is super cool tho(good at keeping secrets)

NatashaAndMoshe21 karma

This is probably too personal, but did Natasha convert to Judaism prior to the wedding? If so, what did she think of the process and did it change her life outlook?

NatashaAndMoshe22 karma

Yes I was very happy to get out of Catholicism. Also I was in Rome this summer and swung by the vatican for confession and he said it was cool. He also said "Have you ever made abortion".

NatashaAndMoshe7 karma

Yes I converted to Judiasm, being Catholic was embarrassing I'm glad it's over.

jigsawt6 karma

NatashaAndMoshe12 karma

MOSHE: We met in comedy and my first impressions were that she was funny.

NatashaAndMoshe10 karma

I met Moshe in the comedy scene and my first impression of him is that I didn't want to do stand up after him.

DontMakeMeAuditUrAss6 karma

Good but he was sweet. Learn sign language!

jigsawt5 karma

Natasha, knowing that Moshe's mom (and stepdad?) and dad are deaf, how do you communicate when visiting them? Did you learn sign language? Do you bring a white board to dinner?

NatashaAndMoshe6 karma

Well his step dad isn't deaf but to answer your question his mom is very easy and fun to communicate. Lots of facial expressions! Also she is great at texting. I want to learn sign language it is a goal of mine.

Hey Moshe, I read Kasher in the Rye. As an orthodox jew, I really got a kick out of you name dropping mordechai ben david in there. Natasha: If you get sick of Moshe would you consider dating another scrawny jew? If yes, where do I sign up?

Hey guys, love your stuff. How did you get your starts from aspiring comedian/actress/writer to professional? What kind of day jobs did you have while you were working your way up?

Also, I'm moving to LA in a week and am going to need a new default jew deli. I'd love some recommendations if you have any.

NatashaAndMoshe6 karma

seems like there is only one answer to this question: HARD WORK. It takes time and effort and there are NO SHORTCUTS other than being 20 and good at the internet. On second thought thats a super good shortcut.

NatashaAndMoshe6 karma

MOSHE: My day job was always being a sign language interpreter. I never waited ONE table!

you_are_temporary5 karma

Definitely a good backup career. Moshe, are either of the shows you're developing sketch based? Key and Peele and Inside Amy are great, but I think you and Natasha's tone on a sketch show would be incredible

NatashaAndMoshe7 karma

No my shows are 1 narrative(the showtime one with the Russos) and 2. Talk format but with a twist never done on TV(the comedy central one)
