1. Describe yourself in a six-word sentence.
Some people say I’m pretty funny.
2. What was the last thing your shared on social media?
Depending on when you read this it was either an innocuous joke that made a bunch of conservatives mad or a pic of my cat being adorable—which also made a bunch of conservatives mad.
3. What do you think is the main challenge facing LGBTQ people in your community?
I live in LA so I have to say housing; it’s ridiculously expensive to live in most places here and the unhoused community, in general, grows more every day. I wish I had something funny to say about this but I don’t.
4. What is your favorite LGBTQ business where you live?
I haven’t been inside a brick-and-mortar business in so long, I don’t even know what’s open anymore. Otherwise, I’d say the erotic cake shop in West Hollywood because nothing is funnier than a dick on a cake.
5. What advice do you have for people looking to get into comedy?
Don’t take my advice—I have no idea what I’m doing. Do what the kids on TikTok are doing—they’re all so much funnier than every professional comedian ever.
