Interview Stand Up Comedian Natalie Cuomo at New York Comedy Club


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 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.

Where are some of your favorite places to perform?

I love to perform at Greenwich Village Comedy Club and New York Comedy Club. Those stages just feel like home. In Los Angeles, I always have a blast performing at The Hollywood Improv and The Comedy Store. read more
