Please help me find this comedy sketch.

I think I remember seeing a comedy sketch of some women celebrating another woman's birthday -- maybe age 40? 35? -- in which a sign of her maturity that emerged late in the sketch was that she had sudden onset of uncontrollable eye rolling. Can you help me find this?

I really need to communicate to a younger person that, for women of a certain age, being frustrated with trying to communicate, or with trying to be taken seriously, is normal. Other examples, either narrative or research-based, are welcome.

I already found this incredible Tracey Ullman sketch and I adore it, but she's reacting to extreme people, not an everyday dude.

Response by poster: Maybe? I have seen that before (awesome), but I'm hoping I'm also remembering one in which the women are actually having a party or lunch.

More importantly (in my real or imagined sketch), the eye-rolling wasn't at extreme/unfortunate/outlier annoyances, but at something (or things) more common or less easy to understand for younger people.

I thought it might be this Inside Amy Schumer sketch, but there's no specific mention of the eye rolling (though they do plenty of it).

Sounds like something from Baroness von Sketch Show but I only found this one that takes place in a doctor's office, not a birthday, and the eye-rolling is due to the state of the world.

Response by poster: Definitely not the Amy Schumer sketch. It's more about the world actually being, well, stupid sometimes, and the inability to not see it as you get older.

Is this perhaps from 30 Rock or Kimmy Schmidt? Eyerolling features prominently in both...

Response by poster: Haven't seen Kimmy Schmidt (not even clips), so not that. Maaaaybe 30 Rock, but I don't think so.

This really sounds like Canadian show Baronesss Von Sketch Show (which has a lot of clips on Facebook), but I don't know which episode.

Hm... could you be thinking of the Baroness sketch Perimenopause - is it? and conflating it with the eyerolling one linked above?

Age Aunt Nothing But A Number from A Black Lady Sketch Show is probably not what you're looking for but has similar themes.
