18 Questions With Comedian Casey James Salengo at the Comedy Cellar

Casey James Salengo

We up with stand up comedian Casey James Salengo right after his sold-out show at the Comedy Cellar in the Greenwich Village in New York City.

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

I’ve worked at a horse track, a campground, a weed farm, as an ice cream scooper, barista, office temp, a wizard at a Harry Potter museum, mover, dog walker, bartender, babysitter, and probably some other things I’ve blocked out.

2. How did you know you wanted to be a comedian?

I always liked being silly and making people laugh. I also hated the idea of having a normal job. In college, I got the opportunity to host a dance show with my friend Brenden and once I got laughs doing that I had a sick compulsion to chase them forever.

3. If you weren’t doing comedy, what would you be doing? read more

Interviewed Stand Up Comedian Jeffrey Gurian at New York Comedy Club in the East Village

jeffrey-gurian


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

Well, I tried getting a job as a waiter but there were none available so I went to Dental School and became a Cosmetic Dentist, and then later a Clinical Prof. at N.Y.U. in Oral Medicine and Oro-Facial Pain, while I was writing for big stars like Rodney Dangerfield, Joan Rivers, Jerry Lewis, Phil Hartman, George Wallace, Richard Belzer, and many Friars Club roasts.

2. How did you know you wanted to be a comedian?

My parents were typical Jewish parents from The Bronx, who at first refused to let me be a doctor. They said, “Don’t shame us that way!” I had to hide in my room to do my homework, and they would bang on the door and say “Come out. We know you’re studying in there. Stop it. You’ll be too successful!” I finally got them to give in. Actually, my grandfather owned a nightclub called “The Red Mill” and I was introduced to show biz at a very early age. My father was a big comedy fan and took me to see comedy movies when I was a kid, and at 12 years old I was already writing comedy for the amusement of my friends. read more

Interview Comedian Katie Haller at New York Comedy Club East Village

We met up with Katie Haller at New York Comedy Club East Village. She was one of the crowd favorites and we got to sit down with her and talk to her about stand up comedy and the NYC Comedy Clubs scene.

1. What other jobs did you do before starting stand up comedy?
I have had some ridiculous jobs. The weirdest-being a bar/bat mitzvah dancer. That was only for a short time right after graduation. The funniest was being a stand-in for child actors. I’m 4’11 and started doing background work as a side job and then started getting booked as a stand-in. Basically, I would show up to movie/tv sets, go through the scene for lighting and blocking purposes while a 10-year-old drinks Yoohoo in their trailer. read more

Comedian Interview Kate Wolff at The New York Comedy Club East Village

kate wolff new york comedy club

We sat down to interview one of our favorite comedians Kate Wolff at the New York Comedy Club in the East Village to discuss all things stand up comedy. 1. What other jobs did Kate Wolff do before starting stand up comedy? I was an Art Teacher for about 6 years when I started stand up comedy. I continued to teach and do stand up for another two years. I eventually had to quit teaching in order to dedicate more time and energy to comedy. One of the best decisions I’ve ever made. 2. How did you know you wanted to be a comedian? After my first open mic, I just felt this rush of creative energy, and I knew then I had found my passion. I couldn’t stop thinking about comedy, and what I wanted to try out on stage. I knew I had found my calling. 3. If you weren’t doing comedy, what would you be doing? I also got into the spiritual healing world as I continued my journey with comedy. I recently graduated from a four-year NonDual Kabbalistic Healing program, so I am a certified healer. I also read tarot cards, paint, and dance. So, I’d probably still be exploring those worlds even if comedy wasn’t in the mix. But thank God/Goddess it is! 4. Where are some of your favorite places to perform? My two home clubs in NYC are New York Comedy Club and Stand Up NY. They have had my back from the beginning, and the rooms are just incredible. 5. Who are some of your favorite up-and-comers in the comedy world? Probably the people I’ve come up with, so Emma Willmann, Robyn Schall, Calise Hawkins, Leah Bonnema, Nathan Macintosh, Aminah Imani, and many more! 6. What’s the best advice you’ve ever gotten? To just focus on my craft, and get funny. We all fall into the comparison wound, but I try my best to just focus on myself, and get more and more authentic on stage. It’s all about finding your unique voice! 7. When did you feel like you were a pro comedian? Probably about a couple of years in when I got paid to do my first headlining gig, and then shortly after that when I got my first stand up TV credit on NickMom’s Night Out.

8. How often do you perform comedy per week? read more
