Comedian Julia Scotti joins Nancy to discuss age and gender in the comedy world, her Showtime special More Funny Women of a Certain Age, and her career journey—including the experience of becoming a quarter finalist and fan favorite on Season 11 of America’s Got Talent and the impact of revealing her personal story of becoming a woman of transgendered experience via the primetime stage (1:20).
Plus, Nancy talks with Arcade Comedy Theater manager and comedian Jason Clark about the common mistakes new comics make onstage and off (21:00) and why early branding strategy can be crucial to leaving the best footprint as you tiptoe into the business.
