The celebrity barbs fly so fast in Julie Klausner’s clever, caustic sitcom Difficult People, you may get wit-lash bingeing it. But not only do Klausner and costar Billy Eichner expertly roast the rich and famous (e.g., Robin Wright’s sleepwear line, Camille Grammer’s IBS), they also cast them. We rank the best—and most random—cameos of the show’s second season, now on Hulu. 

Sandra Bernhard
The biting comedian is Lilith, the coveted showrunner of Horse, an Emmy-winning Netflix series about a mom who sells heroin to support her trans daughter’s horseback riding. Um, we’d totally watch that.

Tina Fey 
 …as herself! After Julie’s mom, Marilyn (Andrea Martin), plies her with “day wine,” Fey agrees to film her video will using the Fonda 5000, an age-defying camera that comes with its own jar of Vaseline. Slick!

John Mulaney
Playing a nostalgic, top-hat-wearing jelly bean heir, the funnyman rides around on a penny-farthing, collects Nazi paraphernalia, and woos Billy. He’s twee and xenophobic!

Mark Consuelos
Mr. Kelly Ripa pops up as another one of Billy’s boy toys, a gay cliché from Jersey. His lines about Pride rings and Demi Lovato are sorta lame. But he’s still fun to look at!
