QUICK DISH: 7 Minutes In Purgatory With Ian Abramson 1.30 At Riot LA

Stand-up comedy is often a dance between the comedian and the audience, with comedians adapting to rooms in order to elicit bigger and more laughs. Yet, on Ian Abramson’s show, 7 Minutes In Purgatory, comedians lose this dynamic, performing alone in a soundproof room while the audience watches from a live feed. The show’s already […]

Layers: Five Favorite New Comedy Podcasts Of 2015

I discovered podcasts a few years ago due to my then burgeoning obsession with stand-up comedy.

Icing: My Most Memorable Stand-Up Comedy Moments Of 2015

I spent a lot of evenings in 2015 going to stand-up comedy shows. What started off as a one show ritual for me (The Meltdown) has now blossomed into a nightly pilgrimage to all the weird and wonderful alternative spaces in Los Angeles.

Icing: EMILY HELLER On Why ‘Good For Her’ Is Great For You

Icing: EMILY HELLER On Why ‘Good For Her’ Is Great For You

EMILY HELLER’s debut stand-up record, Good For Her, drops November 13th on the Kill Rock Stars label, which makes perfect sense. She’s badass and supremely hilarious, her observational style a glorious balance between acute self-deprecation and natural swagger. You’ve probably seen her perform on late night or all around the country. She also hosts a […]

Layers: At LUCK OF THE DRAW We’re All Winners

I attended Luck Of The Draw, a brand new show at NerdMelt, on Saturday night. Hosted by comedian Caitlin Durante (freshly minted Program Director of the NerdMelt Showroom) and comedian Matt Donaher, this new show has a digestible hook: audience members draw suggestions at random from a hat and the comedians must integrate whatever’s on […]
