A local comic on the hot seat
What did you think about Hillary Clinton’s Sopranos parody?
Bill’s not a very good actor. So I’m surprised he was so good at lying before, because this time he didn’t convince me. Not fooling me this time, Bill.
Do you have any secret talents?
I’m a good dancer and I’m a bird nerd. Also, I make killer sandwiches, which I call “sammiches.”
Isn’t it true that women just aren’t really funny? Why are you bothering?
I’m just doing stand-up to try and get noticed for my other skills. Hopefully somebody will be like, “Hey, that’s a pretty good joke. How are you with sammiches?”
If you could have a basketball team that was made up of mythical creatures, who’s in your line-up?
A unicorn. They’d cut the other team. Cut ’em. Giant crows. But they’re probably bad at basketball. Only wings. No hands. No good at dribbling. I want the monster from Goonies because he’s terrifying. And a coyote. Just because everyone will stop in their tracks. Plus, they’re all wearing armor.
Who are your heroes? Who are your anti-heroes?
My mom and my dad are my heroes. My anti-heroes are the people who don’t get a joke. I’d like to sit those people down and start with apologizing. And then we’d go get sammiches! Those people have no dreams. Come on — if there were no dreams to chase, then I’d have no fantasy basketball team.
