Live Talk Los Angeles presents author Kelly Oxford in conversation with actress Busy Phillips to discuss the writing life, tweeting for humor and for a serious cause, and her new memoir "When You Find Out the World Is Against You."
Kelly Oxford likes to blow up the internet. Whether it is with the kind of tweets that led Rolling Stone to name her one of the "Funniest People on Twitter" or with pictures of her hilariously adorable family (human and animal) or with something much more serious, like creating the hashtag #NotOkay, where millions of women came together to share their stories of sexual assault, Kelly has a unique, razor-sharp perspective on modern life. As a screen writer, professional sh*t disturber, wife and mother of three, Kelly is about everything but the status quo.
Both the New York Times and CBS News featured Oxford for her social media campaign #NotOkay that drew millions, and Fast Company included Oxford in their 2017 Most Creative People list. Actress, writer, producer and author Mindy Kaling observes that "Kelly Oxford’s writing is hilarious and fearless. She’s the badass Canadian sister I never had." "Kelly is part geek, part freak… ," says actor James Franco, "… Kelly Oxford c’est moi."
"When You Find Out the World Is Against You" is filled with the biting, wise, and laugh-out-loud insights that have won Kelly legions of fans. Whether she’s detailing her obsession as an eleven-year-old with going to camp so she can become a "kissing bandit," exploring the bittersweet boredom that so often accompanies parenthood, calling out the insanity of a posse of internet poodle vigilantes, writing bracingly about the anxiety that has plagued her as long as she can remember or taking us to ride shotgun as she stalks her husband on an accidental date with another man, "When You Find Out the World Is Against You" is Kelly at her most honest and disarmingly funny best. Her comedic skill, down-to-earth voice, and bull’s-eye observations on the absurdity of modern life mean there is nothing quite like seeing the world through Kelly’s eyes.
Kelly Oxford, born in Edmonton, Canada, currently lives in Los Angeles with her three children. She is the author of the New York Times bestseller "Everything is Perfect When You’re a Liar." You can find her avoiding her book and screen writing on Twitter and Instagram (@kellyoxford). She likes poodles and PBS.
Busy Philipps is currently in HBO’s "Vice Principals," an 18-episode comedy series from "Eastbound & Down" creators Danny McBride and Jody Hill. She was last seen on the popular TBS comedy "Cougar Town." Philipps first garnered attention at the age of 19 in Judd Apatow and Paul Feig’s critically praised series, Freaks and Geeks, for her memorable performance as tough but sympathetic rebel teen Kim Kelly.
