Two words that should never be in the same sentence: "delicious" and "afterbirth." But we'll make an exception for the belly-and-brain-pleasing event Afterbirth ... Stories You Won't Read in a Parenting Magazine. Yes, everybody gets a burger and a side from host Umami Burger, so no fighting. Host-creator Dani Klein Modisett (pictured) promises one of the performers will share "what happens when a 40-something mommy calls a 5-year-old bully a dick? To his face. In fact, in his face." Then there's Matt Price (Men of a Certain Age) on frozen-yogurt shops: "I notice that there are kids everywhere. Makes sense. It is Yogurtland. It's not Cauliflowerland or FoxNewsLand. Those lands wouldn't attract any children. But a land of frozen yogurt? Kid magnet. I notice kids a lot more now since we had Hazel. I look to see if they're happy. I didn't grow up in L.A., and I'm already worried about Hazel growing up here. Where should she get head shots? I don't know." Also on this fine bill: comics Maz Jobrani and Jason Nash, Joan Rater (co-producer, Grey's Anatomy), Dan Bucatinsky (co-executive-producer, The Comeback) and Christy Callahan.
