The thing that I’ve always loved about a great comedy performance is that you leave feeling like you know the comedian a little more. I’m typically drawn towards comics that focus on autobiographical material, rather than setup/punch kinda stuff. I love when comics make you feel like they’re talking directly to you instead of an entire room full of people.
For me comedy is a very personal thing, so getting a chance to actually chat with a comic is always an amazing experience. Fortunately, being in Aspen for the festival provided me with an fantastic opportunity to chat and hang out with a ton of comedians that I love and respect.
