How long have you been doing comedy?
Since the government furlough in December 2019. I didn't have a job and a lot of free time and saw that Sarah Aswell (comedienne from Missoula, MT) was teaching a women’s comedy workshop.
Where would be your dream performance locale be.
Hawaii or New York
What do you feel makes a comedian?
Relating to all people and making people laugh when things are sad or disappointing or unfair.
How do you think your growth as a comedian aided in other aspects of your life?
Helped me relate to all walks of life and find the commonalities we all share through humor.
What gem would you provide those who may have not tried stand up comedy yet?
Pretend everyone is your friend.
Who is your largest non-comedian inspiration?
Kim Kardashian and Cardi B.
What do you consider to be the worst superpower?
Hatred of the hero.
On a scale from 1 - 10, how do you feel about the evolution of slang in today's culture?
Where was the last place you traveled?
Is this your first Dreyfest performance?
What's a song that can help you get through anything, .....no matter what?
If you could be your favorite animal, ...but had to lose a foot, would you still choose to be that animal?
Why or why not? Yes because white people take really good care of 3 legged dogs.
What’s a question you'd like me to answer as an interviewer?
Eden : Is it hard being a black comedian in Montana?
Will: It definitely has its moments. People come to laugh, and if you are going to be rowdy at any one comic, then you already made that choice before entering the event. That being said, there are moments where I have to make a conscious choice of what I plan to do set wise-because there are some parameters that need to be explained for the joke to come across the way I’d like it to.
What do you know about Dreyfest?
What's the worst flavor you've experienced? How did you come about to tasting it?
I tasted bird poo once as a child. A bird pooed on my face.
