[Editor’s Note: Meghan’s friend Panda, whom viewers of their live improv comedy show The The Ding Wrong Show (available on YouTube) now know quite well, declared at the start of this month that Halloween is her favorite human holiday. She likes to dress up three-hundred-sixty-five days a year, but she really does not get why the rest of us only do so on one special day a year. That’s one reason she and Meghan get along so well: neither of them understand why most humans don’t dress up and play all the time, since we wear costumes and pretend and call it “work” every day.

Todd Montesi (of Brooklyn, NY) has been underrated, overlooked, not seen, and passed over countless times. I find that completely insane. This is about to change, though.
PN & Friends, created by and starring Montesi, is without a doubt, hands down the most uniquely deep, innovative, brilliant piece of art I have seen since I was a kid. Watch the entire series to know what I am talking about.
On the surface it’s a fun, original comedy with a great and memorable cast of characters. But, like Todd, this show definitely is not all surface. Not even close. Todd Montesi is a pure, unadulterated genius, and PN & Friends is an actual, pure, unadulterated genius work of art.

Two more rounds remain in the online vote for a model to appear on a future cover of Maxim Australia, and Meghan Jenkins, the star of this website, will make the semifinals on October 15 with your continued support. The winner of the contest will be announced after the final round at the end of October.
After consultations with her team of advisors—comprised of Panda, MeghaZine sports editor Mark Aldrich, her many friends, and especially Panda—Meghan embraced the idea that perhaps victory with a magazine like Maxim can be hers with some photographs that could be considered more Maxim-like. Hence the photo at top and others of her in a bikini. The D.I.Y. aesthetic remains: these are photos of Ms. Jenkins in her own clothes, styled by herself (and Panda) and taken with Ms. Jenkins’ own camera, in a non-professional location, in a set designed, built, and lighted by her.

The UG! Quarantine Show is one of NYC-based actor/director/stand-up Todd Montesi‘s many, many ongoing projects. Live on Instagram, he and his fellow stand-ups discuss life and comedy in our pandemic era. He won me as a fan just because he pronounces the name of the show as it is written: “Ugh! Quarantine,” and not as I had pronounced it in my head when I first saw it: “U. G. Quarantine,” like the name of a long-ago college president.
Your website host Meghan Jenkins and her best friend Panda will appear on Todd Montesi’s UG! Quarantine Show at 10:00 p.m. EST (7:00 p.m. PST) on Saturday, October 10. This will be the second date of what is now known as “Panda’s ‘Lean on Me 2020’ Tour,” after their interview with “Comedy Pete” Burdette in September.

[Editor’s Note: Meghan’s friend Panda, whom viewers of their live improv comedy show The The Ding Wrong Show (available on YouTube) met long ago and who introduced herself to readers of this website a few weeks ago, insisted to the editors and publishers of MeghaZine all last week that she would like to write for the website.
“Okay,” we replied, “What would you like to write about?”
“I want my picture on the website.”
“We can accommodate you in that. Other than a photo of you, what–”
