Doing Standup Comedy in Pre-COVID New York City Taught Me How To Live

I wrote this first-person story about what it was like to do my last weekend of shows in New York City before my album recording just prior to the COVID shutdown. I'm trying to do for unrepped bar show standup what Anthony Bourdain did for line cooks while chronicling the last days of a fertile scene that may never return.

Why You Should Be Happy: standup/storytelling album

I'm a standup comedian and storyteller based in NYC. I just came out with my second album of stories and standup - called "Why You Should Be Happy." Video of the title track here. You may have heard my work on This American Life, The Moth podcast or Risk. The record is about how I found that the world around me hadn’t been working and had to rebuild myself after trauma from out of the skies. Then there are just a lot of jokes about racism, blackface, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, Southern food and broccoli salad.
