She also posts regularly on her personal style and comics blog.
“A Gracie Allen for the new millennium, Van Note’s comedic styling is truly unique, as she combines elements of raunchy slapstick with charmingly innocent self-deprecation.” – Flypmedia.com
“Van Note’s film shorts reminded us of Andy Samberg’s digital shorts for SNL, but darker. Like all good comedians, she makes us laugh by being brutally honest. She’s crude and vulnerable at the same time. And she’s hella funny.” – SF Weekly
