Comedy Podcast: Ms. Pat - Being Grateful in Comedy and Life, Finding Your Voice on Stage, Storytelling Advice +MORE

2020 has been a crazy year so we're doing a throwback interview to one of our first interviews ever with one of our most inspiring guests ever, Ms. Pat. Hear Ms. Pat like never before with hilariously candid stories of getting attacked on stage by Nerf balls, shot twice as a teen mom and the similarities between selling crack and telling jokes. She opens up about being a maternal influence in her neighborhood, how to forgive and not hate, early stories of bombing on stage, and how being raised to fear white people has blessed her with a primarily white fan base and her unique storytelling technique that makes her one of the most beloved comedians working today.
