Ronna and Beverly, the respective creations of L.A. comedians/writers Jessica Chaffin and Jamie Denbo, are the archetypal talkative, overbearing Jewish matriarchs. Since 2011, Ronna Glickman (the raspy-voiced one) and Beverly Ginsberg (the one who wears two pairs of glasses and a Lainie Kazan wig) have hosted a biweekly podcast in which they sing their children's praises in their native Boston accents, crack wise about current events and interview celebrities. (On a recent episode, they likened living in America after Donald Trump's win to sitting shiva. "The nation gained a collective 4½ pounds," they joked.) Past guests have included Jon Hamm, Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, Russell Brand, Eli Roth, Matthew Perry, Mindy Kaling and Jeff Garlin. They also boast about having co-authored their best-selling, nonexistent book, You'll Do a Little Better Next Time: A Guide to Marriage and Re-marriage for Jewish Singles. For their first live taping at Largo, they sit down with America Ferrara and Paul F. Tompkins to gab and offer plenty of unsolicited advice.
