What’s the dumbest thing a stand-up comedian can do before a show?
Request to be paid in food. It’s tacky. I carry psychological baggage to distract me from eating all the time.
What’s the worst joke you ever told on stage?
I played this pedestrian character who wore a sling on stage and would ridicule bad drivers. A friend offered to help punch it up, but yeah, some ideas are meant to die onstage.
What’s the dumbest thing a heckler ever said to you on stage?
An audience member once called me a bad host. I tossed her the shirt I was wearing and we traded places for two acts. I miss that shirt.
