Jenny Slate Reads Lena Dunham's Erotic Jewish Comedian Fanfiction

If you thought the virulent reaction toward her “Dog or Jewish Boyfriend?” New Yorker piece would scare Lena Dunham from commentating on the Jewish male id, you would be very very wrong.

In the most recent episode of “The Organist” podcast, comedian Jenny Slate reads Lena Dunham’s “Erotic Male Jewish Comedian Fan Fiction.” In these vignettes, Dunham has NSFW encounters with Larry David, Jon Stewart, Gary Shandling, Jerry Seinfeld and Mel Brooks — with the latter she imagines she would “hang out on his couch in a sports bra and sweats while he talks with Carl Reiner on how the matzah balls at Canters just aren’t what they used to be, but the cookies are OK.”

Listen to these titillating tales here.
