Interview Stand Up Comedian Natalie Cuomo at New York Comedy Club

Natalie-Cuomo

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
