Why will YOU be the Last Comic Standing?
This is a tough question as everyone has so much to bring, it's a really great competition. Of course, I would love to be the Last Comic Standing for a few reasons: 1 - To finally win something! 2 - To have some extra money to move out of my NY tenement building to a building with an elevator!
In this order, persona, timing and material (laymen terms: jokes).
What comedians do you admire and why?
The old borsch belt comics. For non-Jews who don't know what borsch belt means: Catskill comics such as Buddy Hackett, Phyllis Diller, George Burns, Freddy Roman. I admire that they were clean, funny and killed you with their one-liners.
Who do see as your biggest competition?
Everyone on that stage! And maybe even the audience.
What's the worst job you've ever had (other than stand-up comic)?
The one catering job I got when they asked me to work the coat room and it was August!
