When you stop caring about what others think of you, you finally have the freedom to be whoever or whatever you want to be. But you have to be honest with yourself first. That might be the closest one could come to drawing a thesis statement from the guttural yet feminine roar of alternative rock that is Hole’s 1994 release Live Through This. And few people come closer to truly personifying that willingness to defy all judgement and expectation than comedian JessiMae Peluso. From appearing in MTV’s Girl Code to hosting her own podcasts, “Sharp Tongue” and “Highlarious,” JessiMae has stood in the face of everyone who might tell her she can’t do something, looked them in the eye and dared them to try and stop her.
