Listen to this!
Great pod for any young comic or anyone thinking about getting into standup. Michelle is very funny and has the experience to back up her advice.
This is a great podcast, I've listened to every episode & it just keeps getting better. I'm not a standup comedian, but there's so much overlap between professions that a lot of her advice is totally on point. Great recommendations as well. I will keep listening. 8 stars.
Love it. Love it! LOVE IT!
I couldn't have designed a more perfect podcast; I love listening to Michelle's straight forward advice to newer comedians (and audience members- but just that one time). It's fun to see behind the curtain a bit. If you are crazy about comedy podcasts like I am (I'm the dork with the CBB bumper sticker) then you'll love this podcast too!
