Because comedy is based on addressing taboos, comedians often feel free to unleash their racism, misogyny, homophobia, classism, ableism, body shaming, etc., onto an audience that didn’t sign up for that. I wanted to create a hate-free room where the comedy can address taboos without being hateful or politically oppressive.
Nice Guys Comedy is MY FAVORITE COMICS doing LONG SETS of HATE-FREE material for a SMART AUDIENCE.
So interesting. Me. Read the article here
Last week I had to fly to New York for one night to perform for Gotham Comedy Live, a comedy show which is filmed for AXS TV and will air in early 2017. It is by far the most glamorous thing I have ever done.
Louis C.K. is doing small venues this year to work out his new material, and he’s using a local comic from each city to open for him. So with three hours’ notice, I found myself on stage at the Orange Peel in front of a thousand people saying, “Ladies and Gentlemen, Mr. Louis C. K!” It was surreal. He said “good job,” and he meant it. Yes, I got to hang out with him and he is nice and he’s a lot like you would think he’d be. No, I haven’t gotten signed for any TV deals yet. But I did get this blurry photo with him.
A friend offered me a sublet in New York and my work allowed me six weeks off because they support my art career (!) and here I am in the Big Apple. I booked some shows, had some power lunches, and I’m taking a clowning and movement intensive for actors which is a dream come true. Also went to the O’Neill National Puppetry Conference and saw Sleep No More (another dream come true). But mostly I have just been lying on the couch swiping left on Tinder.
