HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN PERFORMING STAND UP?

2 Years

DESCRIBE YOUR MATERIAL/STYLE OF PERFORMING TO SOMEONE WHO HASN’T SEEN YOU

Raw and upfront. What you see is definitely totally what you get. I’ve been told I’m a female Bernie Mac. Which is a great honor. I’ll do my best to live up to it

WHAT HAS BEEN THE MOST EXCITING THING, PERSONALLY, THIS YEAR, ABOUT STAND UP?

Performing in front of more than 250 people, having their undivided attention, and SLAYIN IT!!

CURRENTLY, WHAT’S THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE YOU ARE WORKING TO OVERCOME, IN STAND UP COMEDY?

I’d like to improve my ability to freestyle or riff in front of people, without a routine.

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST COMEDY GOAL FOR THE NEXT YEAR?

To do better than the year before.

WHAT IS ONE THING YOU WISH YOU’D KNOWN BEFORE YOU STARTED PERFORMING?

How easy it is for me to do it. I would have done this years ago.

IF YOU WERE A BEVERAGE, WHAT WOULD YOU BE?

Coffee. I’m strong and black.

PICK ANY HORROR MOVIE. HOW WOULD YOU SURVIVE?

The Walking Dead. I’d survive by securing myself inside somewhere with plenty of ammo and about four other people. One way in, one way out, and if anyone else tries to come in…I’M BLOWIN’ YA HEAD OFF!

DO YOU HAVE ANYTHING TO PROMOTE?

November 1-3rd I’ll be hosting at Helium Comedy for George Wilborn
