Funny Is The Ultimate Currency - Brad Williams

Walk-Ins Welcome Episode #275
1

Comedian Brad Williams stops in to talk shop with Bridget. They discuss the immediate feedback of performing in front of a live audience, the fun part about crowd work, the joys of parenthood, having a solid family core, keeping life as normal as possible for your kid, how his dad trained him to defend himself against bullies and he saw the power of humor, how he got into comedy, and the politics of the open mic community. They also cover why funny trumps everything, the hardest part of his new special, getting the right kind of laughter, how much they've changed since their early days of comedy, how cancel culture doesn't allow you to evolve, the cost of holding onto your integrity, and the role of comedians in our society. Check out Brad's latest special Starfish.

Bridget Phetasy admires grit and authenticity. On Walk-Ins Welcome, she talks about the beautiful failures and frightening successes of her own life and the lives of her guests. She doesn’t conduct interviews—she has conversations. Conversations with real people about the real struggle and will remind you that we can laugh in pain and cry in joy but there’s no greater mistake than hiding from it all. By embracing it all, and celebrating it with the stories she’ll bring listeners, she believes that our lowest moments can be the building blocks for our eventual fulfillment.
