Describe your worst experience on stage.
The mics didn’t work at one of my comedy shows. I had a packed house and I had the audience waiting for 30 minutes, which felt like forever. After finally getting a mic to work, with very poor quality, I was approaching a punchline when I realized the venue’s T.V.’s were still on. I lost my mojo and went ahead and brought up the next comic.

Describe your best experience on stage.
One of my best experiences on stage was when I got 2nd place in the Gloves Off Comedy Competition. I was very high energy. I had consistent laughs. My improv was flowing, and I was able to tag my jokes a few times.

What do you like best about the St. Louis Comedy scene?
My favorite thing about St. Louis comedy is the challenge. I really believe if I can succeed here I can succeed anywhere.
