Fill us in on what you've been up to since your season of LCS ended?
After season one I went on tour with Rich Vos and Dave Mordal. We played 37 cities in seven months and for most of that tour I was pregnant with my son Rufus. Since then I created an Off-Broadway show called The J.A.P. Show that ran for six months in New York City and is currently touring the country.
How did LCS change your life?
The exposure was incredible. You don't realize what 13 weeks of primetime network television can do for your name recognition.
What's it like being on the road? Is being a professional comic all it's cracked up to be? No pun intended.
Being on the road teaches you there's more to the United States than NY and LA. And the people in those places don't know what a real bagel tastes like.
Tell us a funny LCS story that fans never got to see happen on air?
In season one we lived in a house and once we got down to the final five, there was a big party before we went home (a few weeks later we came back to compete in Vegas); anyway, when we woke up after the party, Dat Phan had left. He chose to walk home. This was a house high up in the Hollywood Hills and he thought he could walk home like in the series "Kung Fu" when David Caradine would walk off into the sunset. It would have taken him half a day. Fortunately, someone found him on the road because he was walking down the wrong side of the mountain.
Any parting words of advice to would-be comedians?
