editor’s letter

A MAGAZINE EDITOR WALKS INTO A BAR. AND THEN…ERM…I’ll find a decent punch line…eventually! I try to be funny, but sometimes only my friends laugh (they’d better). I once opened a speech at an embassy in Kazakhstan with a joke, only to realize that jokes really don’t land when they’re being translated on time delay through headsets. You’ve never heard crickets till you’ve heard Kazakh crickets.KNOCK KNOCK. WHO’S THERE? A MAGAZINE EDITOR…NOPE.Our cover star Kate McKinnon always nails it.

fearlessly funny

IS THERE ANYTHING THAT YOU CAN’T MAKE FUNNY?I make everything funny. I talk about disability, religion, the stuff that you’re not supposed to. I’m doing it because it’s personal to me, not just to see if I can.WHY DID YOU CHOOSE STAND-UP?I didn’t see myself on TV. People with disabilities are 20 percent of the U.S. population, but we’re only 2.7 percent of the images onscreen. If you can’t see it, you can’t be it. Comedy is a place for misfits, and I was a misfit.HOW HAVE YOU BEEN SINCE YOUR BREAKOUT TEDTALK IN 2013?I get threatened by people who know where I’m performing. I’m bullied online. But I grew up with hecklers in comedy clubs; you had to deal with them. And for every 100 nasty comments I get,…

“The time is up for people in this industry being opinionless,” says Shipp. Max Mara coat, tank top, $265, skirt, $695, Max Mara, Beverly Hills. (SHIPP: COURTESY OF MAX MARA)EVEN AFTER STAR TURNS IN THE biopic Straight Outta Compton and coming-of-age story Love, Simon, Alexandra Shipp has been able to stay a little under the radar—a critical darling still able to say whatever she wants on social media. But now the actress, 27, is stepping onto a bigger stage, taking on the role of Storm (originally portrayed by Halle Berry) in the latest installment of the X-Men franchise, out early next year. Shipp knows there will be even more eyes watching her, but she’s committed to being completely unfiltered. Late last year Shipp fired back at critics who felt she was…
