We reached out to stand-up comedian Sarah Garner during the COVID Quarantine to interview her about stand-up comedy and here is what she had to say.

What other jobs did you do before starting stand up comedy?

I was a preschool teacher. You’d be surprised how well the skillset transfers. Hosting a  show is not that far off from a class of 20 3 year-olds. I was also a nanny and taught music and other stuff. I’ve worked in education for most of my career. Now, I still do some work in education. I have a Master’s degree in Special Education. read more

Charlie Barnett’s impact on the world of comedy may be one of the most tragically underreported stories in the comedy industry. He was a selfless comic who gave everything he could to his audiences. He developed a following of struggling performers and artists who tapped into his energy, creativity, and natural delivery. Although Charlie tragically passed away on March 16, 1996, his impact on some of comedy’s greats is still the subject of great discussions. read more

We met up with Natalie Cuomo after her show at the New York Comedy Club in Midtown and asked her some questions about stand-up comedy, being a comedian, and here are her answers.What other jobs did you do before starting stand-up comedy? Before doing stand-up, I was a classically trained actor. I studied under the great Wynn Handman, and I completed the conservatory program at Stella Adler Studios in NYC. While doing comedy, I managed a coffee shop in Williamsburg called Variety. I would wake up, do my shift from 6:30 am-2:30 pm, take a nap, and go out and do shows around 7 pm. It was quite a time.

How did you know you wanted to be a comedian?

I’ve loved performing since I was a little kid. I think the moment that energy funneled into comedy was when I began writing my own jokes while I was in the acting conservatory. 

If you weren’t doing comedy, what would you be doing?

If I wasn’t doing comedy, I would live in the middle of nowhere on a mountainside, with sheep and goats, and a vegetable farm. read more

From the beginning of time, stand-up comedians have told jokes about the similarity of their career path to being a stripper or even a prostitute.  They will be now telling jokes from the same platform as sex workers use to sexually pleasure themselves for tip money.

CamSoda is created CamSodaLive, a no-cost service for entertainment businesses to live stream comedy shows and help monetize them for the comedians. read more
