What are you looking forward to most at the festival this year?

I am looking forward to the Late, Late Breakfast Show on Saturday at 4:00 PM. As a comic, I keep late hours so 4:00 PM is perfect for me. Also, looking forward to seeing friends, meeting other comics and staying up late.

Would you rather be covered in spiders, or live in a world without tacos?

Since I’ve been bitten by a spider and it was no fun and woke up to find the campfire surrounded by a half dozen tarantulas while I slept a few feet away in a mummy sleeping bag, I would prefer to live without taco’s. It wouldn’t be much of a sacrifice since I could still eat all of the fillings separately.

Do you even lift?

Only when necessary! Like when I have to carry the vacuum cleaner from one floor to another or when I have to move mulch around in my yard. When my husband leaves his weights out in the middle of the room, I first curse him under my breath and then roll them out of the way.

Plug something. Commerce will save us all!

We all have dreams and goals, one I hope to realize soon is to write and produce a one-woman-show for various fringe festivals. I hope to prove that Deadpan Jan can bring life to a comedy show.
