Interview With Comedian Laurie Elliott
Veronica: Sometimes being a woman is great and sometimes it’s tough. Hi, I'm Veronica with watchmojo.com and today we’re chatting with comedian Laurie Elliott about the good, the bad and the ugly issues of womanhood and how she can make you laugh at it all.
So before you even begun in comedy you are a competitive diver who is afraid of heights, so how did that workout for you?
Laurie Elliot: When you're sacred of heights and you're a diver you get up there and you just throw yourself off. You know there’s no hesitation. Now at this point in my life I wouldn’t go near any of the high diving boards at all. I actually got kicked out of public swim the last time I was there because I did a dive at the 3-meter board and I went up and I came really close to the board and the lifeguard kicked me out.
Veronica: Do you have the same love-hate relationship with comedy?
Laurie Elliot: Oh that’s interesting, kind of—it could be yeah because if you have great set you love comedy but if you get off stage and you haven’t done very well and you're not happy with what you did you're just terrified of it the next time you do it. But then you still just throw yourself off and do it again anyway.
Veronica: A lot of your show discusses being a woman and your body changes and going out clubbing as a cooker, do you take the inspiration from your life?
Laurie Elliot: Yeah actually last night after the show a gal came up and she said, “I thought you're really funny but I couldn’t tell whether you were joking or not.” I knew what she meant because some of the stuff I say from my life experiences sounds pretty outrageous, but it’s true. I'm one of those people where weird things will happen to me and I guess my energy provokes it or invites it and I use it and that’s pretty much where I get my inspirations from.
Veronica: Well thank you very much and good luck with everything.
