LOVE IN COMEDY
Love goddess of stand-up comedy, Abby Feldman, descends from above to share her “embrace and accept” approach to life and comedy. Want some depth with your commute? We’ve got it for ya! She expounds upon her philosophy of love, which emcompasses audience connection, intention for writing and performance, facing and embracing flaws, love and loathing in relationships, and love as existence itself. And more! Of particular interest is her wonderful perspective on exuding love on stage even in the face of a “hostile” audience. Then the last bit played got us all in the feelsies. This episode is so good!
